according to

d.ssa Annamaria Acquaviva:

1 – Personalized nutrition:

currently, by longevity science means the possibility of being able to reach an advanced age while maintaining living conditions that do not make us age. Power is certainly one of the first things to pay close attention to. Since each of us is different, alongside general rules valid for all, it is necessary to evaluate an adequate meal plan, which takes into account the needs, goals and personal history of each one: a diet that gives the right energy, the best form physical and mental and that favors the good health of our intestine and intestinal microbiota, which is different for each individual, just like DNA, and which is essential to keep in constant balance. The Mediterranean diet abounds in ingredients, such as whole grains, legumes, vegetables, fruit and olive oil, which, combined in the right proportions, keep the intestinal microbiota in the best functioning and guarantee a good state of health of the organism. As for the epidermis, for a tonic and fresh aspect, antioxidants must never be missing from the menu, such as coenzyme Q10, present in cereals, soybeans, nuts; polyphenols, which we find in grapes, chocolate, green tea; lipoic acid, which can be taken with red meats, potatoes, broccoli, spinach. Finally, never forget proper hydration to replenish the water lost during the day.

2 – Inner harmony:

every day we face life events, situations, relationships that put us to the test, make us feel under pressure, make us irritable or fatigued, “stressed”. Stress is a reaction of the body that is activated when we find ourselves in situations of emotional or physical tension and, if active for short periods, it can be positive, for example when it helps us in a situation of real danger; if it lasts a long time, then it can damage health. To relieve stress, meditation can be useful, which favors the increase of serotonin, the neurotransmitter of good mood, as well as melatonin, which promotes rest and gives a better ability to concentrate combined with a greater awareness of one’s body and that helps regulate emotions. Dr. Acquaviva believes that to find inner harmony mindfulness is useful, with which to achieve balance between body and mind without ruminating on the past and without the anxiety of the future, with the awareness of the present, that is, with the surrounding environment, colors, flavors and scents to savor every moment of our existence.

3 – Physical activity:

it is an integral and indispensable part of healthy habits to achieve the goal of a healthy, healthy and satisfying life. Having an active lifestyle does not mean becoming Olympic athletes, what matters is to introduce a movement routine in our days: even a simple walk, in fact, has countless benefits, because it helps to lower blood pressure, to tire in a healthy way by balancing the sleep-wake rhythm, relieves the pressure of anxiety contributing to an elevation of mood.

4 – Rest:

sleep is a fundamental requirement for living in full health, even if it is too often underestimated. Even if we spend a third of our life sleeping, it is certainly not a question of wasted time: at night vital functions are reactivated, we regenerate ourselves, brain activities are modified and decisions to be made are elaborated. Even the quality of sleep depends on our habits and losing even a few hours can have detrimental effects on attention, language, reasoning and learning. To promote sleep and relaxation it is useful, in addition to meditation, to focus on your breath to try to remove anxieties and worries: when you learn to listen to your body, it is easier to remove tensions, but of course some good practices, such as limiting caffeine, physical activity, eating properly and eliminating distractions are essential to ensure a ten out of ten.

5 – Food and cosmetic integration:

in a wellness program aimed at longevity, the physical aspect is also of great importance. Science and modern technology applied to the remedies offered by nature are able to provide preparations that optimize health and natural beauty by counteracting premature aging. Nutrition alone, especially as the years go on, is not able to provide the necessary amount of mineral salts, vitamins and other components, especially if there are deficiencies: in this case, food supplements are a powerful tool for support for the organism. As for the skin, whose conditions can also affect one’s self-esteem and interpersonal relationships, a study confirmed that environmental factors influence skin aging for as much as 80%, while only 20% is genetic predisposition. To help your skin look younger for longer, you need to take care of it through targeted cosmetic treatments and lifestyle. Therefore, no to smoking and excessive exposure to the sun without adequate protection; instead we focus on cosmetics with natural ingredients which, thanks to the use of the latest technologies, allow us to create quality products. According to Dr. Acquaviva, for example, those that contain formulations based on extra virgin olive oil, rich in vitamin A and vitamin E, useful for fighting skin aging, are perfect; with saffron, rich in benefits for the beauty of the skin thanks to its antibacterial, antifungal and anti-inflammatory properties; with pomegranate, a fruit with a powerful antioxidant action; with grapes, which stand out for their energizing effects, which stimulate skin microcirculation and counteract skin aging, ideal for male skin care.
