How We Age

Does "aging" mean "old?" Not really. Science tells us aging begins even before we reach adulthood, occurring at the cellular level. Billions of research dollars have been spent in an attempt to understand how the aging process, works and what can be done to slow it down.

Our bodies face these four mechanisms of cellular aging:
It’s a fact of life. Aging begins long before we can see or feel any changes – at the cellular level. Is cellular aging inevitable? Well, we can’t stop time, but emerging research reveals we may be able to influence these biological aging processes in positive ways. This has to do with how efficiently cells repair and replicate themselves, which affects your health, well-being and the aging process in various ways.
