HOW POLLUTION AFFECTS OUR HEALTH. ANTIAGING and SKINGENETIC
We live in a world increasingly involved in pollution and, although we know that environmental pollutants have highly harmful effects on our body in general, they can have harmful consequences both in the short and long term and affect our health in different ways.
The most direct response that pollution has is with the worsening of the respiratory system and theincrease in the risk of cardiovascular diseases. Air polluted by gases such as ozone, carbon monoxide or sulfur dioxide is one of the main causes of the increase in allergies today, even triggering more serious conditions such as bronchial asthma and lung diseases. In addition, in the case of cardiovascular diseases, this favors the appearance of thrombi and an increase in blood pressure, which can lead to much more severe pathologies.
Other effects of pollution can be seen on the skin. Air pollutant particles deteriorate the skin barrier, leaving it unprotected, causing its oxidation and reducing its hydration (premature aging, acne, psoriasis, …). The effects are much greater if you are sensitive skin, since you have a greater risk of developing allergies and increasing the appearance of dry skin, eczema and peeling.
Similar reactions can be observed in the hair. The scalp is an extension of our skin, so the dryness spreads towards our head causing inflammation, irritation and dermatitis.
Likewise, all these polluting substances from outside accumulate in our body and, if they are not eliminated correctly, they can weaken our body and seriously alter our health.
Thanks to great advances in science, there is much more knowledge about Antiaging medicine, about how it can help our body to minimize harmful effects and slow down the aging of the body.
In Spiral prevention is a fundamental pillar, and genetics can provide us with very valuable information on how to act preventively and, in this way, improve our well-being.
Our Antiaging test provides an analysis of those genetic variations that could be responsible for possible problems during the body’s natural detoxification process with respect to certain harmful substances (such as environmental pollutants, among others), and analyze the mechanisms to correct errors in the process.
In addition, you will be able to know the state of the skin with the Skingenetic test, which includes a complete study on various factors related to genetics that cause premature aging of the skin, such as antioxidant capacity, the level of elasticity and hydration and resistance to solar exposition. Likewise, it measures the genetic risk of developing allergies and other conditions, and offers recommendations adapted to each profile.
