Ageing is a natural phenomenon. Right from the time of conception, until we die, this is one continuous process that does not stop, no matter what. There is no set formula available till date that can bring the process of ageing to a standstill. Till the time we grow and mature, this process of ageing looks absolutely normal. But as we reach maturity and slowly our body starts wearing out and skin starts to sag and wrinkle, we all become increasingly uncomfortable with this process. It is at this stage of life, after entering the late 30’s and 40’s that people start looking for supplementation and medicines that can prolong their youth and keep it intact, if not forever but, for a few more years to come. Apart from cosmetic reasons, the ageing body organs also show alterations in their behaviour due to the growing wear and tear. It therefore becomes very essential to take restorative measures to keep the body healthy and fit so that this natural ageing process can never make you feel any older at heart. Premature ageing is a process when the body shows signs of natural wear and tear much before expected. It may range from skin deterioration to ill health to early onset of old age diseases etc. The factors that influence the early onset of this condition involve a haywire lifestyle and a faulty diet routine that lacks balanced nutrition which is essential for the body for regular maintenance. When it comes to dietary supplements, there is nothing as good as vitamins to achieve and maintain an ageless skin and a healthy body. Vitamins have strong anti –oxidant properties. Anti –oxidants help to neutralize the effects of the free radicals that are produced inside the body. These free radicals are generated as a result of the harmful eatables that we consume. Environmental pollution, chemicals, unhealthy food, drugs, alcohol, radiations are other factors that increase the production of free radicals in the body. These free radicals if not effectively neutralized, lead to many diseases and cause damaging effects on the body. The market is loaded with a vast variety of natural supplements, products and medicines that claim to delay ageing especially premature ageing. All of them have multi vitamin extracts which help to meet the depleting reserves of these micronutrients in the body and also act as strong anti –oxidants. It is always advisable to do a thorough study of the authenticity of the products and the claims made by them before blindly investing money.
