Many people start to peer in the mirror around the age of 40, looking for wrinkles or gray roots starting to show beneath their hairline. The aging process actually starts much earlier than what individuals expect, but because the signs are on the inside of the body, it isn`t noticed until the exterior of the body catches us. All of the vital organs in your body will experience change and begin to lose function as soon as you enter adulthood. It occurs within the tissues, the cells, and the organs. As these are some of the foundational elements of your body structure, the resulting impact is seen all over the different body systems.

Cellular Makeup

Cells make up the structure of every living thing, with different types supporting basic structures. When the cells are layered together and performing a specific function, the result is the formation of tissue. When different kinds of tissues are layered and grouped together, it forms an organ. There are four basic categories of tissue.

  1. Connective tissue is what supports other tissues and joins them together. It can be made of blood, bone, or lymph tissues, as well as developing the structural components of internal organs and the skin.
  2. Epithelial tissue is used to cover body layers. These are the passages deep within the body, like the gastrointestinal system.
  3. Muscle tissue is a category has three primary components. Striated muscles are covered as they move the skeleton. Smooth muscle tissues are contained in the internal organs and the stomach. The cardiac muscle is a large tissue structure that makes the bulk of the heart wall.
  4. Nerve tissue is comprised of neurons or nerve cells, and this category carries messaged to and from different areas of the body. The spinal cords, the brain, and the peripheral nerves are made of this material.

Impact of Aging

The cells are the foundational building blocks of tissue, and these organisms will change as an individual ages. They grow bigger and lose the capability of dividing and multiplying. They start to fill with fatty substances and pigments, decreasing the cell`s ability to function normally or function at all. When the cells experience degeneration or are weakened through aging factors, the tissues which they have constructed begin to change. Waste products begin to build up, and the fatty brown lipofuscins start to collect inside. As this happens, connective tissues lose their elasticity and make the blood vessels, airways, and organs more rigid. The cellular membranes that help with the transmission of nutrients and oxygen change and prevent the waste or carbon dioxide caught inside from being eliminated.

Progressive Damage

As body tissues experience aging, they may lose mass. This is called atrophy and can result in weakness. Some tissues experiences increased rigidity or they become lumpy. As the tissues change, it ultimately affects the organs that are composed of tissue layers. Because it does take some time for the different layers between cells to organs to demonstrate aging impacts, people don`t often notice the loss in organ function. Many organs are rarely pushed to operating at full capacity, and each organ has a reserve functioning ability that can come in handy whenever the body has unusual needs. However, once an individual reaches the age of 30, each year that passes creates a 1% drop in the reserve supply.

The most noticeable changes in reserve functions occur in the lungs, heart, and kidneys. The drop in reserve affects people differently, and the changes may appear more slowly and over longer periods of time. However, when an organ in the body has to work harder than normal, it can be difficult for the organ to meet function demands. The additional stress on the body`s organs can make it harder for a body to bounce back from illness, can cause a domino effect of malfunction, and can hasten the decline of total functioning.

Aging Potential

As individuals look to combat the effects of anti-aging, the best place to start is with an interior attack on the functions most affected. As the cellular level seems to be the origins of negatively impacting factors related to body function, a treatment approach such as peptide therapy gives hope for improving potential from the inside out. Peptides are small proteins that work to relay messages throughout the body, and targeting messages to increase the production and efficiency of the human growth hormone. This is the hormone that helps with improving muscle mass, fat burning, and increasing energy levels.


Choosing a peptide therapy plan for your plan to combat aging can be useful, but it shouldn`t be the only thing you do. Consider how a well-balanced diet and plenty of exercises can strengthen your whole body and promote a better response to the negative factors that may be in play with aging.
