You, like most of your health-conscious friends, would probably do everything in your power to give up smoking because you know it’s a life shortening activity.

Yet there’s a danger that comes from another bad habit that’s not well known. It’s not something people do, it something people don’t do…

I’m talking about exercising to maintain muscle strength.

Non-exercisers could claim there’s nothing to directly link muscle weakness with biological aging. But that’s not true. Scientists have discovered more new research that links weak muscles to faster aging.

The Weak Muscle Link to Aging 

An abundance of evidence links muscular weakness – as determined […]

Feeling tired? That’s understandable if you’ve had a busy day at the office, thrown yourself into yardwork or just completed an aerobics session. But what if you’ve done nothing more than water the plants or watch TV?

How fatigued certain activities make an older person feel is not something to take lightly. A recent study shows your level of fatigue can indicate health trouble is brewing and even predict the likelihood of your death within the next three years.

Here’s the story and how to measure your own fatigue level…

Even late in life we still hope to ascend flights of stairs, decipher puzzles, and steer clear of infirmity and serious disease. But many believe such desirable outcomes are out of our hands due to our genetic history.

A new study shows this thinking is all wrong. In fact, your DNA matters less as you grow older. Here’s the good news and how you can use it to age better…

The level at which genes are expressed — ratcheted up or down in activity — determines everything from our hormone levels and metabolism to the mobilization of enzymes that repair the body.

What Is The “Perfect” Anti-Aging Diet?

By |2023-01-13T14:44:13+00:00January 12th, 2023|Nutrition|

How do the foods we choose to eat and the nutrients within them affect how we age? It’s a very simple question, yet the answer is anything but simple.

Manipulating a single dietary factor such as calorie intake, or a single nutrient such as vitamin C, only gives us a partial picture of their true effects. To see the full picture, we need to take a much broader approach.

According to the latest scientific research, the “perfect” anti-aging diet and lifestyle depends a lot on your age and stage in life.

The idea of optimum nutrition is complex because it depends on so […]
