Age management experts strongly recommend increasing the amount of fiber in your diet for better heart health. Soluble fiber, which is found in whole grains, fruits, and vegetables, can help lower your cholesterol levels. Choose old-fashioned rolled oats for breakfast to reap the benefits of beta glucan, a type of soluble fiber. Beta glucan combines with water in your digestive system to remove some cholesterol from the body and block cholesterol from being absorbed.
Watch this video for more information on how fiber can improve your heart health and overall wellbeing. You’ll see a helpful animation that explains how fiber works in the body and you’ll see an array of foods that contain high amounts of fiber. You’ll also get some tips for adding more of these healthy foods to your diet.

There’s no question that physical activity is a cornerstone of any healthy age management program. Physical fitness can help you feel rejuvenated, contribute to your longevity, prevent a wide range of illnesses, and even help you look younger. If you’ve been having trouble adhering to a physical fitness program, talk to an age management specialist. He or she can help you explore the types of activities that might work best for you.
Age management physicians strongly recommend regular exercise as a means to achieve a healthy weight. In fact, individuals who combine physical activity with a healthy diet plan are more likely to keep the extra weight off than those who use diet alone.
Becoming physically fit with the help of an age management program will reduce your risk of a number of medical problems, including high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart disease, and stroke. You’ll also reduce your risk of metabolic syndrome and diabetes, conditions that would have placed you at risk of an array of additional health problems such as nerve damage and eye damage. Exercising regularly can even help prevent certain types of cancer, including colon and breast cancers.
Bone and Muscle Preservation
As you grow older, your bones and muscles will lose mass. Fortunately, engaging in weight-bearing exercises can preserve your bone mass, and reduce your risk of osteoporosis and bone fractures. It will also preserve your muscle mass and help you regain any lost muscle mass.
Cognitive and Psychological Wellness
If you’ve already started to follow an exercise routine with your age management program, you may have noticed an improvement in your state of mind. Research has shown that exercise can lift your mood and reduce your risk of depression, in addition to benefiting cognitive function by improving your reasoning and judgment.

Perimenopause and menopause are natural transitions that every woman experiences later in life. Although the changing hormone levels associated with menopause are perfectly natural, they can cause troublesome symptoms. If you suspect you are entering perimenopause or menopause, you can talk to an age management specialist to learn if you could benefit from hormone treatment.
Decline In Hormone Levels
Estrogen is the main female hormone that facilitates healthy reproductive organs, preserves bone mass, and carries out other important functions. Estrogen levels begin to decline during perimenopause; however, they do so irregularly. After these levels fluctuate for a period of time, they will decline sharply with menopause. Other hormone levels change during perimenopause and menopause. For example, progesterone is a hormone responsible for preparing the body for a potential pregnancy. After your last menstrual period, you will no longer produce progesterone. Testosterone, or the male hormone, is also important for women’s sexual health. In fact, it contributes to the production of estrogen, preserves bone and muscle mass, and increases sex drive. When you reach menopause, your testosterone levels will be cut roughly in half. However, your ovaries will continue to produce a small amount of testosterone.
Symptoms Associated with Declining Hormones
The changing hormone levels associated with perimenopause and menopause are responsible for the symptoms women experience at this stage of life. Women often report hot flashes, night sweats, and vaginal changes such as dryness. Your doctor may also inform you that you are at an increased risk of osteoporosis due to thinning bones. However, there’s no need to suffer from these symptoms. You can improve your quality of life and optimize your health with hormone treatment.
