Can stress really turn your hair gray? A recent article in Prevention magazine researched the question finding that there is, in fact, scientific proof that stress speeds up aging. According to the Biological Psychiatry, those who experience chronic or long-term stress were shown to have shorter telomeres, which are the outermost part of the chromosome that naturally gets shorter with age. Increased levels of cortisol, the “stress hormone,” for extended periods of time have been proven to wear down the body and, in turn, cause aging effects to kick in sooner.
The factors that cause stress – be it your job, finances, etc. – can be hard to hedge, which is why Midwest Medical Aesthetics in Leawood, Kansas offers a range of luxurious spa treatments for both men and women that promote healthy relaxation and stress relief.
