The Anti-Aging Mineral That Millions Miss Out On

By | 2018-03-15T12:22:52+00:00 March 15th, 2018|Nutrition|

One of the most most important ways to fight aging is to keep your immune system operating at peak efficiency. A declining immune system is one of the most common causes of aging, but there are things you can do to prevent this.

And if you don’t take advantage of those simple steps, it’s likely your immune system will begin to malfunction and you will develop runaway inflammation.

Inflammation can, in no uncertain terms, shorten your life and make what’s left of it a misery. And one, simple mineral can help prevent that. . .

The immune system is sort of the neglected […]

4 Reasons People Live Past 90 (And One “Maybe”)

By | 2018-03-08T12:37:34+00:00 March 8th, 2018|Natural Health|

Scientists have identified five lifestyle factors that will reduce your risk of dying prematurely.

Each one will lower your chances by between 3% and 21%.

The lead author of the new research stressed that “People should try to incorporate as many of these things into their day as they can if they wish to give themselves the best chance of living to a ripe age.”

The findings were revealed at the American Association for the Advancement of Science conference in Austin, Texas in February.

This Broccoli Compound Slows Aging

By | 2018-03-01T17:19:47+00:00 March 1st, 2018|Nutrition|

A recent study shows a certain natural compound reverses the aging process by making cells act younger than they actually are. It’s called nicotinamide mononucleotide, or NMN for short.

This and other forms of nicotinamide have generated a lot of buzz in the anti-aging field. Many call them the “Fountain of Youth.”

Discover how this amazing element brings youth back to your cells and slows down the aging process…

NMN Helps Your Cells Function Properly

NMN plays a vital role in how cells use energy by increasing the production of another compound called NAD (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide).

NAD is critical for converting energy […]

Being Stubborn, Controlling & Domineering Will Help You Reach 100

By | 2018-02-25T03:09:31+00:00 February 22nd, 2018|Natural Health|

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!

A Region Full of Centenarians

The focus of the study was an area of rural southern […]

Muscle Mass Plunges in Older People

By | 2018-02-15T19:58:29+00:00 February 15th, 2018|Natural Health|

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. And while you may be concerned about what that does to your physical appearance, there’s a much more serious problem…

Muscle loss is one of the main reasons older adults are prone to falls and fractures.

And for many older adults, these falls […]

These Women Looked Nearly Three Years Younger in 20 Weeks

If the idea of plastering your face with mud, smearing it with expensive creams, and signing up for Botox or a facelift doesn’t appeal to you, there’s a new way to turn back the clock on the way you look – and it needn’t cost you a cent.

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, […]

This Common Prescription Drug Halts the Aging Process

By | 2018-02-01T09:59:06+00:00 February 1st, 2018|Pharmacology|

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 […]

The Versatile Herb That Fights Off Old Age

By | 2018-01-25T08:47:05+00:00 January 25th, 2018|Pharmacology|

Most of the time, if you hear about health benefits that seem too good to be true, it’s because they are. Be skeptical.

But I think I’ve come across an anti-aging exception to that rule: the herb rhodiola. Here’s what has me so excited.

Rhodiola rosea, also known as golden root, is a classic adaptogen, a substance that adjusts one of your body’s processes either up or down, as needed.

For example, if your immune system is too amped up, leading to harmful inflammation, an adaptogen may calm it down. If your immunity is too laid back, and allowing you to get sick too […]

New Nutrient Combats Mitochondrial Aging

By | 2018-01-18T10:06:26+00:00 January 18th, 2018|Nutrition|

There’s a great deal of evidence that mitochondria – the “powerhouses of the cell” – are a major factor in determining how long you’ll live.

With aging come damaging changes in these cellular energy plants — their quality content, volume, function, gene expression, and ability to make proteins all slide downhill. This happens because mitochondrial DNA are especially vulnerable to attack by free radicals.

These damaging effects have led to the “mitochondrial free radical theory of aging” – an update to the free radical theory of aging that’s been around for a while. The new theory suggests that
