Supplements & Treatments To Make Your Golden Years Glitter

No matter how old you are, thinking about the future is always a good idea. If you don’t know where you’re going in life, it’s tough to make decisions in the present. You have to have a plan, a goal, a way that you imagine your life is going to be.


Of course, when most of us picture growing older, we think of aging in very general terms. It’s tough for a young, fit, and healthy person to imagine losing mobility or falling unwell due to aging, but it’s something we all need to be aware of as a possibility. Why should we linger on such depressing thoughts? So we can do something about them.


There are things you can do, right now, that will benefit you in later life. Develop the good habits now, and you can look forward to your golden years sparkling just as much as the rest of your life did.


Note: as you always should, talk to a doctor before adding a supplement to your diet or embarking on a new regime.


Collagen / Gelatin


As we age, the amount of collagen and gelatin we naturally produce begins to decline. This can lead to facial wrinkles, stiff joints, and a loss of flexibility. Supplementing these compounds back into your diet is the perfect way of ensuring that you feel younger for longer, and are able to continue doing the physical activities that you enjoy.

Calcium


Our bones are 99 percent calcium, which is why it’s important to keep calcium topped up throughout our lives. This is especially important in later years, when our bone density can diminish substantially. Many older people rely on calcium supplements to keep their bones in good shape; and according to these AlgaeCal reviews and testimonials, it seems to be pretty effective.


Consider supplementing calcium to strengthen your bones, especially if you have used birth control at some point in your life. Hormonal birth control such as the pill can lower bone density, so supplementation would be recommended.


Coconut Oil


At present, the connection between coconut oil and staving off dementia is largely anecdotal. However, using coconut oil over other cooking methods is a decent idea for your health anyway. If this then proves to be of benefit to your mental cognition in later life, then more’s the better!


Gentle Exercise


Whether you’re currently a workout queen or more sedentary, getting into the habit of taking gentle exercise on a regular basis will do you the world of good as you age. By “gentle”, we mean going for a walk or cycling for leisure rather than at spinning class speed. Gentle exercise is good for your mind and your body, so allow it to become a pleasant hobby that you actively look forward to.

Get into the habit of walking for pleasure.


By establishing the above habits at a young age, your body will be as fit as it can possibly be throughout every stage of your life. Enjoy yourself-- by implementing the above, you’re certainly going to feel good enough to have a whale of a time!

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
