Staying Connected Prevents Aging

Dr Bollmann, Anti-Aging and Skin Care Specialist

One of the consistent things mentioned by centagenarians (people who live to be 100) is having friends, family, and an active life style.

Researchers from the University of Chicago (Illinois, USA) report that social isolation may be detrimental to both mental and physical health.  The team analyzed data from the National Social Life, Health, and Aging Project, a nationwide US study involving 3,000 men and women, ages 57 to 85 years.  They arrived at three key findings regarding the relationships between health and different types of isolation:

• The researchers found that the most socially connected older adults are three times as likely to report very good or excellent health compared to those who are least connected, regardless of whether they feel isolated.
• The team found that older adults who feel least isolated are five times as likely to report very good or excellent health as those who feel most isolated, regardless of their actual level of social connectedness.
• They  determined that social disconnectedness is not related to mental health unless it brings feelings of loneliness and isolation. 

Separately, Rush University Medical Center (Illinois, USA) researchers studied 906 older men and women, testing their motor functions (including grip, pinch strength, balance, and walking) and surveying their social activity, for a period of 5 years.  Those study participants with less social activity were found to have a more rapid rate of motor function decline. Specifically, the team found that every one-point decrease in social activity corresponded to an increase in functional aging of 5 years, translating to a 40% higher risk of death and 65% higher risk of disability.

Aging often brings changes in social relationships as individuals retire, take up new activities, endure losses and experience health changes. People who adapt to losses and avoid social isolation tend to fare better with respect to both mental and physical health.

Hyperpigmentation, Melasma, brown spots and excess pigment are not only the most frequent complaints but some of the difficult problems to deal with.

Bleaching agents do not work by themselves. One must bring the pigment to the surface of the skin to remove it. To do this, a Retin-A like productsuch as Bare Skin Care Vitamin "A" Serum is necessary, along with the many bleaching agents in our Program For Hyperpigmentation.
