A mere twenty or thirty years ago we knew what a granny or a pensioner looked like – wrinkly, white haired and shrinking with creaking joints. In fact once the menopause had begun few women could be considered either sexy or stylish.
The ageing baby boomers are busy refashioning what it means to grow old just as they transformed expectations about sex, music, house buying, child-rearing and cooking. Taut, tanned sixty-year-old stars now smile out from magazine, promising the possibility of staying desirable and healthy as we age.
Celebs of course have the money for gyms, cosmetic surgery and expert make up but that doesn’t mean the rest of us can’t look and feel younger than our chronological age.
‘The 10 Secrets of Healthy Ageing” is the first handbook that allows you to take control of how they well you age.
Follow the 10-step nutrition/lifestyle programme which will increase your chances of staying healthy and functioning well for longer. It explains what happens when your body ages, why you will need more nutrients as you get older and what to do about it. Don’t wait for your doctor to diagnose a problem
Find out how to stay energetic with a smooth firm skin, strong muscles, an efficient immune system, a good memory and healthy brain for as long as possible
