A common habit helps preventing aging effects

We all know that gray hair and wrinkles are common with age and we also lose the physical structure of our youth.

However, if this happens prematurely, it is a matter of concern.

Of course, with age, the process of physical decline gradually accelerates, but usually such signs begin to appear after 50 years.

But by adopting a common habit, you may be able to prevent the signs of aging from appearing prematurely.

This was revealed in a medical study conducted in the United Kingdom.

Scientists have discovered a possible link between brisk walking and biological age.

Biological age refers to the state of body cells and the length of telomeres.

Telomeres are located in chromosomes, the reduction of which is associated with aging and disease.

Research from the University of Leicester shire in the UK has shown that walking speed is already a strong indicator of health, but in this new study we used people’s genetic details to prove that walking at a brisk pace helps reduce biological aging.

For the study, researchers examined data from more than 450,000 middle-aged people.

The genetic analysis of these individuals indicated a link between rapid walking and biological age.

Research has shown that slow walking does not have this positive effect, but keep in mind that every kind of movement is good for health.

The researchers said that the results suggest that people who are accustomed to walking slowly have a much higher risk of developing chronic diseases or unhealthy aging, and that walking briskly has a positive effect.

The results of the study were published in the medical journal Communication Biology.
