#1 Proven Health Habits to Avoid Aging

ETNT Health Logo By Heather Newgen of ETNT Health | Slide 2 of 6: According to Dr. Taylor Graber MD Anesthesiologist and owner of ASAP IVs: "Staying active is without question the best personal habit to slow aging. It doesn't matter much what the activity is. Just getting outside and walking each day stimulates the cardiovascular system, keeps muscles healthy by continuing to use them and preventing atrophy, and increases sunlight exposure which can increase your natural absorption of Vitamin D (which can help prevent mood swings and depression, strengthens bones, helps prevent osteoporosis). If walking doesn't work for you, then a low intensity weight lifting program is additionally helpful. It doesn't matter much what the activity is. All movement is helpful!"
