Ongoing stress is bad for your emotional and physical health. It can promote disease, reduce the length of telomeres — a biomarker of biological aging — and reduce the number of years you’ll live. That much is well established.

But there’s another, more subtle form of psychological stress that has a powerful influence on health and telomere length.

It has to do with the glue that binds communities together. It concerns how well neighbors are willing to help each other, whether they generally get along and can be trusted, and whether people in the neighborhood share the same values.

The two foods I’m talking about are apples and green tomatoes. Red tomatoes have the nutrients, too, but in […]

Skullcap For Younger Looking Skin

By |2017-12-27T17:16:18+00:00December 13th, 2017|Natural Health|

Have you ever heard of the term senescence? It’s a five-dollar word that simply means “the process of aging.”

In this article, we’re talking about cellular aging.

Senescence occurs when cells are no longer capable of dividing but are still alive and active. They are reaching the end of their life. Old age, seen from the cellular level.

What this means to your skin is that it doesn’t produce enough new, healthy cells and it begins to wrinkle, sag, and look older.

However, there’s a powerful nutrient that helps offset these effects. It can halt free radical damage in the skin and restore elasticity.

This […]

If scientists ever discover the elusive fountain of youth, that fountain will have to rejuvenate one particular group of cells that will make us all ageless.

They may also keep your muscles as toned as those of a young athlete and fine-tune your brain cells so they’re as rapid-fire smart as those of a chess prodigy. Keep reading and I’ll disclose the identity of these wonders.

The cells I’m talking about are stem cells.

Research shows that the changing nature of stem cells, […]

Nobody likes being nagged constantly by medical authorities about the importance of exercise and how we really have to make ourselves do it.

But if you want to live a healthier, longer life, there’s no getting it around. The research is overwhelming.

If you’d like to be Immortal, Study these Animals that already possess the ability to bypass Aging.

Most animals age faster than we do. But there are a few exceptions that may tell us how to make ourselves ageless and extend our lives…

After all, if we can understand how some animals manage to bypass aging, that could be a first step toward using the same sort of strategy ourselves.

And that’s exactly what researchers are trying to do by studying animals, like Turtles — that never die of old age. They’ve been known to live for hundreds of years and their organs don’t seem […]

This Natural Molecule Ranks High Above All Others for Adding Years to Life

The close relationship between depressed levels of this natural peptide and the progression of aging could hardly be more convincing.

As a potent antioxidant and detoxifier, with key roles in the immune system and reliable links to longevity, this may be the one, single factor we need more than any other.

It’s called glutathione.

Levels Fall in All Organs After Age 45

Glutathione is made from three amino acids – glycine, glutamic acid and cysteine. It is found in all cells.

Although the body is able to manufacture glutathione, its ability to do so drops sharply after the age […]

As a potent antioxidant and detoxifier, with key roles in the immune system and reliable links to longevity, this may be the one, single factor we need more than any other.

It’s called Glutathione (gloo-ta-thigh-own), and is often called the “Vital Force” of our bodies because the lack of this critical molecule speeds up aging.
