Hi Elize, thank you for the question.
I 100% agree with you that we all will get old regardless of what we do as this is a natural process our bodies (internally and externally) go through. However, the field of Ant-Ageing Medicine is progressing at a rapid rate and as such has become a huge subject with many sub-specialties, each with its own breakthroughs. Technology has advanced allowing doctors to approach external ageing with minimal or no downtime and allowing the delay of surgery. Research into hormone levels and how supplementing the correct hormones and the effects on ageing have also made strides albeit not in ‘mainstream’ medicine. The use of nutrition and specific supplements to decrease the rate of ageing has also received a lot of attention.
Your best approach would be to resubmit the question (as your main concern is the nutritional aspect of ageing) to the following experts on the health24.com web page:

Furthermore, you should consult with your family practitioner regarding your blood pressure and the appropriate treatment.
