Biological clock may refer to circadian rhythm, age and female infertility. In this blog post I will be discussing the ways to optimize each of these. Let us first talk about biological rhythms.

Circadian rhythm
It is better if you have the habit of eating at the same times of the day. This practice will optimize your hormonal outputs. In the same way if you maintain a consistent exercise schedule it leads to better circadian control.

Exerting your mind helps you to sleep well. To optimize your circadian rhythms ensure you get enough light. If your circadian rhythm is maintained properly, it will increase fat loss, immunity and mood.

Ageing is a natural process. But with proper lifestyle changes we can certainly experience a more graceful aging process. A good diet practice keeps you young naturally.

Reduce refined carbohydrates, saturated fats and trans-fats in your diet. On the other hand increase complex carbohydrates and fiber. Increase omega 3 fatty foods and omega 9 fatty foods. These are found in olive products and nuts.

Restrict your calorie intake it will increase your lifespan. The other measures to optimize the aging process include drinking plenty of water and to avoid smoking and alcohol. Maintaining an ideal body weight, practicing meditation will also help you to remain young.

Female infertility
In order to optimize the fertility rate reduce stress, eat healthy food and shed your body weight. Eating nutritious food supplies body with vitamins and minerals which increases fertility rate. Avoid caffeinated drinks, soda, tea and chocolate.

Scientists at the Salk Institute for biological sciences have found cellular switches that tell the body when to sleep and metabolize food this may lead to new drugs to cure sleep problems and metabolic diseases such as diabetes.

Scientists have also discovered a missing link between body’s biological clock and sugar metabolism. This finding may help avoid serious side effects of drugs used for treating asthma, allergies and arthritis.
