An emerging field of nutritional research examines how meal times affect the body’s daily rhythms and what this means for our health.

It’s called chrono-nutrition.

Research so far has shown that the timing of meals can affect a […]

Whether you’re enjoying a thriller by Stephen King, a bittersweet romance from Danielle Steele, or an Inspector Gamache murder mystery, you’re in for some good news.

Reading these, or indeed any novel, will lengthen your life. Read on to find out why.

Sitting for extended periods of time is not good for health or longevity, yet when you’re reading a book that’s exactly what you’re doing. Even so, some studies – although not all – have found reading reduces the risk of death.

More research was clearly needed to find out if reading really does confer a survival advantage, so that’s what a […]

Do you sometimes sneak in a post-lunch nap, but feel guilty about it? Some recent research will relieve your guilt.

A recent study suggests afternoon naps may be a good thing for older adults and can help them feel mentally sharper.1

But getting these memory-boosting results is all in the timing. Here’s the surprising story and how you can use the science to your advantage…

We’ve covered the napping conundrum before in our newsletters. In one study, researchers found that participants taking longer daytime naps more frequently had a higher risk of Alzheimer’s disease.2

In another study, researchers found that chronic sleepiness could serve […]

An Early Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s Diagnosis is Just a Sniff Away

By |2021-09-16T10:09:35-04:00September 16th, 2021|Natural Health|

If your sense of smell let you down any time over the last 18 months it was probably because you were a victim of the coronavirus.

But COVID-19 isn’t the only reason you can lose your ability to smell. It can also signal the onset of Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s disease.

So, being able to test this successfully would not only help track the recovery of COVID-19 patients, but also help physicians spot neurodegenerative conditions at an early stage.

Scientists from the United Kingdom say they’ve developed just such a test. What’s more, it will soon be available for at-home use.

The link between losing […]

Surprising “Longevity” Link Between Diabetes and Insomnia

By |2021-09-09T10:00:33-04:00September 9th, 2021|Natural Health|

Sleep is critical to good health, but for many of us it’s hard to come by. In the modern world there are so many challenges to a healthy sleep—everything from stress to diabetes—that can cause insomnia. In fact, diabetes is the world’s fastest growing chronic health condition and people with diabetes not only lose their lives prematurely, but they often suffer with insomnia.

So, if you suffer from both diabetes and insomnia, what effect would this have on your life expectancy? In the first study of its kind, scientists decided to find out.

It’s not news that insufficient duration or poor quality […]

Can You Really Cheat Aging and Death?

Recently we wrote about new research suggesting that one day it may be possible for the average human to live to 120 or even 150 years of age—nearly doubling the average human lifespan in the developed world.

While these scientists say it’s only a matter of time before modern medicine has advancements to dramatically slow the aging process and allow our life spans to nearly double, other anti-aging scientists believe it’s all pie-in-the-sky.

Let’s take a look at the research that has the pessimists convinced that aging cannot be dramatically slowed and that the human life span has a limit.

Could This be the Most Important Food for Living Longer?

By |2021-08-26T04:00:18-04:00August 26th, 2021|Nutrition|

When researchers looked around the globe to discover which populations enjoy the longest life exptectancy, they focused on several different groups who consistently outlive the rest of us.

After they analyzed what these people were eating, they found differences among the various cultures and a variety of ways that they prepared their meals. However, there was one food all these long-lived folks had in common despite their differing lifestyles and locations throughout the world.

Now, many researchers consider this food to be “the most important dietary predictor of survival of older people of different ethnicities.”1

The food I’m talking about is legumes.

Legumes are […]

How to Grow Three Years Younger in a Matter of Weeks

A groundbreaking new clinical trial shows how you can lower your biological age by more than three years in a mere eight weeks.

But this breakthrough didn’t come about through some new pharmaceutical discovery or medical procedure. Instead, the secret involved nothing more than a handful of dietary and lifestyle changes which we can all carry out by ourselves in the comfort of our own homes.

This age reversing breakthrough begins with a biological process known as methylation. Methylation is a process whereby one carbon atom and three hydrogen atoms (methyl group) are either added to or removed from a molecule, acting […]
