How Aging Affects Our Mental and Physical Performance

Our bodies become less efficient at channeling oxygen as we age, which is why our mental and physical performance decreases over time. The good news is we no longer have to accept this decline.
At Aviv, we see aging as a disease that can be treated. We transform the way people age by using the latest innovations in healthcare and restore youthful vitality with a medical treatment clinically proven to reverse biological aging.

Aging and Cognitive Performance
Our mental abilities usually begin a natural decline, in part because our brains begin to atrophy when we reach our 30s and 40s. This atrophy accelerates once we reach our 60s. As we age, we might find it harder to recall events, remember words, sustain attention, solve problems, and multitask. In the later stages of life, this decline in cognitive ability can eventually lead to dementia.

Aging and Physical Performance
As we age, we typically become less able to perform physical activities due to a loss of muscle mass and power, along with an increase in fat tissue. Nerve conduction decreases, making our muscles less responsive. Our lung capacity and cardiac function also decrease, making it harder to stay active and exercise.

Hallmarks of the Aging Process

  • Body tissues lack oxygen
    Arteries become narrower, restricting the blood flow and oxygen supply to vital organs. This is a condition known as atherosclerosis.
  • Mitochondria dysfunction
    Mitochondria are parts of our cells that generate energy for the body. They become less efficient and decrease in number as we age.
  • Stem cell exhaustion
    Stem cells which help to repair damage in our bodies, decrease in numbers as we age, and those we do have become less efficient at regenerating our damaged tissue.
  • Shortened telomeres
    Our cells are constantly dividing. Telomeres are the protective caps at the end of each chromosome. They gradually become shorter as we get older, and eventually become so short the cell can no longer divide. These are known as senescent cells, and their presence is one of the leading causes of aging.
    • A trailblazing study unveiled the ability to reverse two crucial biological aging indicators: “significantly increasing telomere length and clearance of senescent cells in the aging populations.”
    • This discovery indicates that it is indeed possible to fundamentally reverse some of the biological signs of aging,  paving the way for an entirely new approach to slowing the aging process.
