Aging is very normal to human beings because deterioration occurs to every part of the human body from the largest units up to its smallest composition. Aging is characterized by the weakening of every system, organ, and tissue. During the most part of a life span, the deterioration of every part of the body is progressive in nature.
According to several anti-aging researches, it is very hard to measure the aging rate of human beings because of its consequences. One has to take note that the effects of aging are nearly inevitable, persistent, and entangled with diseases that are showing or triggering gradual deterioration in the structure of the parts of the body with an eventual loss of the ability of the affected parts to function. Aging is not something that can be examined thoroughly without any consideration with disease processes since aging has many characteristics that are also featured in several diseases.
However, based on anti-aging researches, there is one biomarker that can somehow be utilized as an aging measure. This biomarker is maximum life span. The rate of aging has something to do with this because every human being, just like any other species, has a distinguishing life span. Our maximum life span is actually 100+.
More recent anti-aging research found out that there are basically four simple steps that can be taken in order to come up with high quality prolonged existence. There is even a term called “exceptional survival” that applies to being able to survive until a specified age without the occurrence of any impairment in the mind or in the body and without any six major chronic diseases.
It appears these days that the industry of cosmetics is nearly on the verge of having a sudden turn. But not so sudden the turn must take because there are processes involved on the issue about anti-aging products. There is in fact an emerging comparison between the use of cosmetics for anti-aging and drugs that are used for the same purpose. Even if the two have the same intention of fighting the aging signs on human, studies show that there are more bars to be raised in order to keep people intact with the products. Just like with drugs that can be trialed, the cosmetic industry must also be able to come up with its way on having tests more efficiently than before. But then again, this may be an internal issue that manufacturers of these products must consider.
At the bottom of it all, anti-aging research brings further information to the consumers in as much as it does to the manufacturer of products that claim to fight aging. It is best to get into these researches to know more about what you might be heading for. Even if it is difficult to determine the rate of aging of human beings, there are still ways that can be taken into consideration by both parties on making the most out of the industry of drugs and cosmetics.
