Scientists have conducted a great deal of research to learn how physical health, diet and genetics relate to longevity, but they’ve paid little attention to mental health or personality.

To plug this shortfall, researchers from Italy, Switzerland and the US teamed up to find out if there are any special traits that help people live to a healthy old age.

Some of their findings may be bad news for those of us who have to live with a loved one who makes it past 90!

It gets harder to keep muscle strength as you age. We naturally lose muscle mass as we grow older. But how big is this problem, really?

When you’re in your 40s, you lose about 1% of your muscle mass and strength each year. By the time you reach your 70s, you’ll lose another 30% of your remaining muscle mass each decade.

This new approach lifts, firms and smooths drooping and sagging areas; tones muscles; and minimizes or softens lines and wrinkles.

At least that’s the opinion of New York yoga instructor Annelise Hagen. She developed this anti-aging facial program, so I guess she might be a little biased. But now scientists have confirmed her claims, […]

The herb known as goat’s rue (Galega officinalis) has traditionally been used by mothers to increase their breast milk while nursing an infant. But there’s also a drug derived from this herb that researchers believe may be able to help you live longer and fight aging.

Scientists investigating this pharmaceutical have uncovered evidence that it can moderate blood sugar, lower the risk of heart disease,1 influence cellular metabolic processes and lead mitochondria (the organelles in cells that produce energy) to do things that make cells healthier.

The drug is metformin, an off-patent diabetes drug that’s been used for about 60 years and usually has […]
