How an Intestinal Problem Can Make You Age Faster

When things get old they leak. That includes old pipes, dams, faucets and hoses.

And it also includes the walls of your digestive tract. Those leaks – known as leaky gut syndrome – are more than a mere annoyance. They make you age faster.

Researchers believe that much of the health-damaging inflammation that accompanies aging – sometimes called inflammaging – is linked to our increasingly leaky guts that allow harmful substances to pass through the intestinal wall and into the bloodstream.

Here’s what you can do about this. . .

Breaching the Barrier

When everything is functioning as it should, the thin mucosal layer that […]

Slow Down Lung Aging, Breathe Easier with These Foods

Every minute of every day, two basic activities keep you alive from one moment to the next: your heartbeat and your breathing.

We’ve all read or seen a ton of information about how to keep your heart healthy and functioning properly, but what does anyone ever tell you about maintaining healthy lungs? (Except for “Don’t smoke.”)

Education. Work. Retirement. That’s your life plan. It’s a simple, three-stage model we have all learned to expect. But this model is rapidly becoming out of date.

For the last two centuries life expectancy has increased by more than two years every decade. In 2014, as many as 72,197 Americans were aged 100 or over. That’s an increase of 44% since 2000.

This means individuals — as well as companies and governments — will have to start planning for much longer lives.

In their book The 100-Year Life, authors Lynda Gratton and Andrew Scott are optimistic these extra years are a precious gift. […]

Pack on This Type of Fat and Live Longer

Most of us want to live a long life, but only if our later years are spent in good health. The buzzword these days isn’t “lifespan,” it’s “healthspan” – how long can you enjoy life to the fullest?

That’s why, for the past 20 years, scientists and researchers have been working hard to find ways for people to enjoy a longer healthspan. And according to some researchers, a certain fat naturally found in our bodies could be the answer.

Yes, this is a fat you WANT.

As I hinted, the fat I’m talking about is not just any fat.  The secret lies in […]
