Blue Print of Aging and Decline in Fitness & Vitality

How does the human body change as we age?
The above table tells it as it is! After peaking at around 25 years of age, body functions begin to decline!

Bones & Joints
20-25years is the optimum for bone density
25 + bones continue to grow & build till the mid 30s.
35 + there starts a slow and consistent decline in bone density.
40 + progressive decline in bone mass; in women, post menopause, there is rapid decline in bone strength & density.
60 + increased wear & tear on joints; increased stiffness & pain.

Strangely, cartilage in the ears and nose continue to grow throughout. Gerontologists have found that the ears & nose measure more in older people.

Muscles
25 yrs is the age for optimum muscle bulk and strength.
30 + muscle mass and strength decline progressively. 
40 + further decline in muscle mass, while fat builds up to alter the ratio of muscle to adipose tissue.
60 + decline continues.

What you can do about bone and muscle loss

Skin
40 + the first wrinkles appear, skin loses elasticity as collagen fibers lose their resilience
50 + skin surface becomes drier; age spots may appear due to build-up of pigment in the cells
70 + decline in ability to regulate body temperature (by retaining or losing heat)

Facelifts & other strategies



Energy Needs (calorie consumption) & Digestive System
10 yrs is the peak age for BMR (basal metabolic rate); slow decline thereafter.
30 + energy needs drop by 5% every decade; weight gain is inevitable unless corrective action is taken to increase BMR & change diet.
50 + secretion of digestive fluid decreases causing less efficient digestion.
60 + decline in number of active taste buds.

What you can do about weight loss

Brain & Nerves
18 years sees full development of the brain and nervous system
25 + ability to learn may decline, but intellectual activity continues to develop through life experience 
50 + likely changes in short-term memory, ability to concentrate decreases, reflexes slow down ; absentmindedness, sleep pattern changes
75 + years brain can lose upto 10% of its tissue with attendant loss of intellectual ability; decline also in physical co-ordination

Eyes 
40 + elasticity of lens declines (presbyopia) leading to difficulty in focusing on close objects 
50 + difficulty in seeing in low light 
60 + loss in ability to distinguish detail; possible glaucoma
70 + further decline; possible cataract

What you can do about failing eyesight

Ears
30 + loss of hearing begins in the 30s, and progresses with age
50 + gradual decline in hearing ability, decline in ability to hear high pitched sounds
70 + further decline may make hearing aids necessary. This progressive decline, known as presbycusis, affects 1 in 5 over age 50; 1 in 3 of the 60-70 age group; and half of all aged 70 +.

Hearing aids to combat loss of hearing



Heart & Blood Vessels
18 yrs average resting heart rate is 60-80 beats per minute (slowest in the fittest)
40 + loss of elasticity in artery walls, leads to a rise in blood pressure
50 + heart muscle loses elasticity; heart has to work harder to do the same job
70 + progressive decrease in stamina leads to fatigue setting in

Preventative strategy

Immune System
25 optimum level
25-50 the T-cells & B-cells begin to weaken, 
60 + 50% drop in function of the immune system resulting in susceptibility to disease.
70 + susceptibility to disease increases

Combat strategy

Lungs & Airways
20-30 years optimum lung function
40 + loss of air sacs (alveoli) and weakening of rib-cage restricts ability of lungs to expand fully
65 + lung efficiency drops to about 60% of optimum level
75 + lung efficiency drops further, and even moderate exertion may cause shortness of breath

Reproductive Organs
In men
16-18 years peak of sexual activity in most. Sperm is produced  continuously at the rate of 125 million per day
40-50 decline in testosterone & increase in estrogen levels
50 + possible enlargement of the prostrate gland , leading to problems in urination
70 + progressive decline in testosterone reduces sexual desire; less viable sperm.

In women
18 years or earlier sexual maturity in most
45-55 menopause time for women; loss of fertility; decline of female hormone levels, vaginal dryness, loss of sexual desire, possibility of osteoporosis , 'hot flashes' caused by high FSH levels
65 + further overall decline

What you can do to keep the hormones flowing naturally

Urinary Organs
18 + in women, post motherhood reduced pelvic muscle strength & tone, which may lead to urination problems
65 + kidneys function less efficiently, and it takes longer to clear toxic chemicals from the blood-stream

Hair
40 + hair starts to gray; men may lose hair
50 + hair growth & texture of hair becomes thinner, especially in men.
65 + further decline in growth, color and texture

How to deal with hair loss



Teeth
45 + gingivitis occurs in 1 out of 10
50 + teeth may start to fall out ,
70 + further decline likely unless good dental hygiene measures taken

What you can do to retain your teeth

Aging is inevitable, but there are steps that can be taken to minimize it's effects.
