CHANGES WITH AGING


Normal Changes With Age

Normal aging involves the steady decline of organ functioning and of the regulation of body systems. This decline may only be noticeable during periods of maximum exertion or stress. We may experience slower reactions to stimuli, wider variations in functioning, and slower returns to resting states. Some biological changes are predictable though.

An understanding of how our bodies age helps us make informed decisions relating to general health care. These changes may be apparent by physical appearance or by decrease in function. Some may not be noticed at all by the individual.

 

Aging Organs

Most vital organs gradually become less efficient with age. Your metabolism gradually slows, which means that your body needs less food energy than before. An active body that gets plenty of oxygen, water, and nutrients is more likely to function efficiently for a longer period of time.

 

Ages Of Changes

Whilst the changes are the same for everyone, the age at which they appear greatly varies. Whilst genetics play a part, lifestyle choices are thought to play the greater role. Health experts unanimously agree that regular physical activity is key to healthy aging and physical independence. Not only does it keep the body strong, but keeping the body moving protects and improves your emotional and cognitive health. People who stay active, mentally challenge themselves, and stay connected with loved ones are less likely to suffer anxiety, depression, short-term memory loss (cognitive decline), and illness in general.

Some of the most common changes in our body systems.
