Is Diet Soda Really Safe to Drink?

By |2020-12-24T11:17:09+00:00December 24th, 2020|Natural Health|

Diet soda first made an appearance in the 1970s, and ever since there has been much debate about its benefits (if any) and safety.

Some say it’s better to slurp down a diet soda than to drink one laden with sugar, while others contend that those who drink diet sodas are just fooling themselves.

Let’s dig into the research and see what the science really shows.

A new study performed in France noted that sugary drink consumption has increased worldwide in recent years. Researchers believe this in turn has damaged heart health.

Eloi Chazelas, a lead author of one study, set out to examine […]

Top-Rated Anti-aging Fruit

By |2020-12-17T13:59:48+00:00December 17th, 2020|Natural Health|

For anyone seeking the best foods for fighting the aging process, there’s one fruit that stands out above other fruits and vegetables.

It’s overflowing with antioxidants and other natural chemicals that help the body fight off cellular damage and illness. And a wealth of research shows how it defends the brain, protects the muscles, suppresses cancer, lowers the risk of gout and helps the body heal.

On the way to those benefits, studies show, the phytonutrients in this amazing fruit boost the energy-making abilities of virtually every cell in the body, giving it remarkable anti-aging power.

I’m talking about the pomegranate. It’s a […]

“The Mother of All Antioxidants” Reverses Premature Aging

By |2020-12-14T00:54:40+00:00December 10th, 2020|Natural Health|

There are hundreds, if not thousands, of compounds in plants that have antioxidant activity. Some are familiar, like vitamins C and E. Others, like coenzyme Q10 and lipoic acid, are less well known, unless you’re a health buff. Many are obscure to just about all of us.

Yet among this vast number there’s one that really stands out from the crowd; it’s a small protein called glutathione.

Glutathione deserves star billing because it combats two factors considered to be at the core of the aging process. Now a new study confirms what many scientists have long suspected; boosting glutathione can actually reverse […]

Anti-Aging Protein Offers Benefits of a Low Calorie Diet While Eating Normally

By |2020-12-03T17:26:33+00:00December 3rd, 2020|Natural Health|

From fruit flies to mice to monkeys, scientific research shows calorie restriction consistently lengthens life.

Studies suggest calorie restriction can also lengthen the lives of humans, too, but the extremely low level of food intake you’re allowed is not sustainable.

Fortunately, new research has unlocked an anti-aging secret of calorie restriction. And one day, this new discovery may give us another way to trigger the same life-lengthening benefits of calorie restriction without reducing food intake.

A diet that restricts calories also reduces the intake of proteins, fats and carbohydrates, since these “macronutrients” are what contain the calories. (Vitamins and minerals have few or […]

Seniors Enjoy a Better Quality of Life Than Three Decades Ago

By |2020-11-26T21:37:10+00:00November 26th, 2020|Lifestyle|

Are older people better off mentally and physically today than the previous generation?

Yes, at least in Finland, say researchers who just published a study on aging in the journal Ageing Clinical and Experimental Research.1

Let’s take a look at what we can learn…

Scientists at the Faculty of Sport and Health Sciences at the University of Jyväskylä, Finland accessed the country’s health data gathered 28 years ago on the physical and mental abilities of elderly people. The subjects included 500 participants aged between 75 and 80 years old.

Next, the researchers conducted the same physical and cognitive tests on a group of 75- […]

These Healthy Choices Lengthen Life, Even For Those With Chronic Conditions

By |2020-11-19T13:14:45+00:00November 19th, 2020|Lifestyle|

It often takes an acute health crisis to get people to the point where they are willing to change direction and adopt a healthier lifestyle.

But what if someone has two or more chronic conditions such as asthma, angina, epilepsy or multiple sclerosis that will likely remain regardless of any lifestyle changes they make?

Will a person in this situation see a benefit in terms of life expectancy by making healthier choices?

Scientists from the United Kingdom thought this question needed to be answered.

We’ve been told that not smoking, avoiding junk food, losing excess weight, exercising regularly, and other healthy choices will keep […]

Discover the Natural, Relaxing Way to Boost Your Fountain-of-Youth Hormone by 142 Percent

By |2020-11-12T15:53:38+00:00November 12th, 2020|Natural Health|

[Editor’s Note: Part one of this article covered how infrared saunas have been clinically shown to cut the risk of Alzheimer’s disease and even burn 600 calories. To review part one, please click here.]

Most of us don’t sweat enough regularly. We live in air conditioned homes, cars, and offices. We use antiperspirants, and most of us don’t exercise enough.

The problem with this lifestyle is that your body was designed to sweat. And sweat is a key way to cleanse your body. A far-infrared sauna is one of the best ways to help.

One thing I can tell you from personal […]

Bodybuilding Supplement Extends Healthy Aging & Lifespan

By |2020-11-05T12:30:32+00:00November 5th, 2020|Natural Health|

Who would have thought that bodybuilders might have a secret anti-aging weapon tucked away in their gym bags?

Researchers have discovered that a favorite supplement of the muscle-bound also promotes healthy aging and extends life span … at least in mice.

Now, normally, I don’t dig into such early stage research, but this study piqued my interest, and you’re about to see why. If it turns out to work even half as well in humans as it does in mice, it will revolutionize anti-aging medicine.

At Buck Institute for Research on Aging, in Novato, California, scientists are encouraged by laboratory research into the […]

To Measure Your Life Expectancy, Measure this Part of Your Body

By |2020-10-29T18:40:19+00:00October 29th, 2020|Natural Health|

In measuring your health and longevity, many healthcare practitioners take into consideration your BMI – Body Mass Index – a measurement that reflects the ratio of your weight compared to your height.

But now, researchers believe there’s another body measurement that’s far more significant than BMI. I’m talking about your waistline.

BMI is a rather simple measure that has been widely used to link weight to health. As your BMI goes up, your health risks rise.

But the fact is, BMI’s reliability in determining health is shaky in many cases because it doesn’t reveal whether somebody’s extra weight is muscle or fat. And […]

Avoid These Foods if You Want to Live Longer

By |2020-10-22T10:33:57+00:00October 22nd, 2020|Natural Health|

If you’re eating the standard American diet, I’ve got important news. Instead of nutrient-dense whole foods, most of the calories you’re consuming are in the form of “ultra-processed” food.

Unfortunately, the Harvard School of Public Health points out that the ingredients used in these foods are tailor-made to trigger blood sugar issues, weight gain, and high blood pressure.1

And if that’s not enough, researchers have found that these foods can damage the all-important genetic material that directly impacts the way you age and how long you live.

One study from the U.S. National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey found that ultra-processed foods make […]
