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.

Now comes a new study to show us that regular cardiovascular workouts will keep your telomeres long and add nearly a decade to your life.

A Half Hour is The Minimum

The study, carried out by Professor Larry Tucker from Brigham Young University in Utah, looked at data on lifestyle and 62 physical activities of 5,823 adults. […]

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 […]

Age-Old Wisdom Could Extend Your Life in the 21st Century

The ancient Chinese must have been very smart.

Described in Shen Nong’s Classic of Materia Medica sometime around 110 BC, a plant called Huang Qi was said to have anti-aging functions.

And now, over 2000 years later, cutting-edge science is showing they were right. It really does seem to have the ability to roll back the years.

In the West, this Chinese herb is best known as astragalus root.

A Popular Herb With Huge Health Benefits

Used in traditional Chinese medicine for thousands of years, the dry root of […]

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

By |2017-12-27T17:15:57+00:00November 22nd, 2017|Nutrition|

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 […]

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

Whole Body Vibration Slows Down Aging

By |2017-12-27T17:15:49+00:00November 15th, 2017|Natural Health|

If you think that to slow down aging you have to engage in a complicated program of strenuous exercise custom-designed to fit your age and abilities, think again.

Yes, some sort of physical activity like daily walking is a good idea for staying younger, but researchers have found there’s a pretty simple way to merely stand in place – in the right place – and engage in a powerful anti-aging process.

Not many people take advantage of this discovery, but maybe we should.

Where is the right place to stand?

On a vibrating platform.

The activity is called whole-body vibration. It usually involves standing on […]

Shiver your way to lower blood sugar and better all-round health.

If you fancy a rather unusual vacation, why not enroll in 58-year-old Wim Hof’s training camp in the wintry wilderness of Poland.

For seven days “The Iceman” will teach you how to tolerate sub-zero temperatures. He claims this strengthens immunity, improves circulation, balances hormones, enhances the quality of sleep, reduces weight and makes you feel really alive.

At the end of the week you even get to climb a mountain.

Not for you? While cold exposure is certainly not everyone’s cup of tea, Wim Hof’s protocol has attracted the attention […]

A safe, widely available antioxidant nutrient is now being recognized as a brain-protector that can both defend your brain against the damage of a concussion and help improve your brain if you get Parkinson’s disease.

Those are two remarkable characteristics for a single, natural nutrient.

But don’t wait till you get a bang on the head or you’re diagnosed with Parkinson’s. Those in the know about this inexpensive supplement have long understood that it can help the brain produce more glutathione – the body and brain’s most powerful, important antioxidant.

And now this substance, n-acetylcysteine – known more popularly as NAC – […]

Balancing Fats In Your Diet To Fight Aging

By |2017-12-27T17:14:47+00:00November 1st, 2017|Nutrition|

To fight the effects of aging, you have to eat the right kinds of fats.

Studies show beyond doubt that the cells in your body function better and keep you healthier when they get a balance of the right fatty acids.

But most Americans don’t. Here’s a quick rundown on good fats and bad fats.

Most of us consume too many vegetable oils like corn and soy oil that are filled with what are called omega-6 fats. In excess, those fats speed up aging.

The solution: Balance them fats with omega-3 fats, which is not hard to do. But first let’s take a look […]
