How to Reverse Brain Aging Through Diet

By |2020-04-30T11:41:29+00:00April 30th, 2020|Nutrition|

Scientists have studied longevity in numerous animal species, from fruit flies to rodents to monkeys, and in almost every case they found that calorie restriction extends life span. But why?

Ketone bodies offer at least part of the explanation.

Ketone bodies are three natural compounds produced in the liver when the body metabolizes fat. Science shows the body can use ketones as replacement fuel when glucose — the body’s preferred source of fuel — isn’t available.

This means that by drastically curtailing carbs and upping your fat intake, you can turn your body into “a fat-burning machine” as the keto marketers like to […]

Can Eating Too Much Sugar Shorten Your Life?

By |2020-04-23T11:38:42+00:00April 23rd, 2020|Natural Health|

By now most people know that a diet high in sugar doesn’t do your health any good.

But the so-called “empty” calories of sugar aren’t really empty. They’re like little missiles that take aim at your organs.

The problem with sugar, researchers have now found, goes way past the possibility of making you prone to weight gain, high blood sugar and diabetes.

The latest studies show that even if you avoid diabetes and weight gain, sugar triggers dangerous shifts in your body that can wreak havoc on your health and steal years from your life.

How One Tiny Fish Can Help You Defy Aging

By |2020-04-16T11:11:29+00:00April 16th, 2020|Natural Health|

In the 1968 sci-fi movie, 2001: A Space Odyssey, the crew members are put in a state of suspended animation, lying inside a pod to preserve oxygen and life support supplies.

But using suspended animation to defy aging is not just science fiction.

Scientists now know that putting living cells and organs into a state of hibernation can effectively slow down biological aging and allow for a much longer lifespan.

New research reveals there might be a way to achieve a state of “physical hibernation” while still performing our normal daily activities—no space age pod necessary!

How? They’re turning to the secrets of a […]

Is the “King of Carotenoids” the Secret to Youthful Skin?

By |2020-04-09T12:06:55+00:00April 9th, 2020|Natural Health|

You are religious about sunscreen application. You slather on night cream. And you eat all the right foods. But did you know that the secret to youthful skin might actually be a tough-to-pronounce antioxidant?

Astaxanthin (pronounced asta-ZAN-thin) is the reason why both the skin of salmon and flamingos sport that lovely pink hue. And now there’s some scientific evidence that this potent carotenoid may help protect your skin from wrinkles and the cumulative damage that comes with age.

Let’s take a look at why scientists and skin care experts alike are touting it as the next anti-aging breakthrough…

Golf? How One of America’s Favorite Hobbies Can Add Years to Your Life

By |2020-04-02T11:57:45+00:00April 2nd, 2020|Natural Health|

Mark Twain is said to have described golf as “a good walk spoiled.” I don’t expect the 25 million Americans who play the game would agree with him.

The enjoyment that comes from teeing off with the driver, striding down the fairway, and focusing intently on a 30-foot putt (not to mention refreshments at the 19th hole) is also matched by some wonderful health benefits.

Perhaps the best of these benefits is a longer life. Let’s see what the science reveals about golf and longevity.

Golf Reduces Your Risk of Death

Evidence that golf can add years to your life comes from a brand-new […]

Staying in Rhythm Can Mean Longer Life

By |2020-03-26T12:32:51+00:00March 26th, 2020|Natural Health|

Every cell in your body maintains a daily rhythm, called a “circadian” rhythm. You’ve probably heard the phrase.

As you age, these rhythms can slowly slip out of sync, leading to a wide range of health problems that can harm your well-being and shorten your life.

Now, researchers are pointing to effective ways to keep these rhythms on track or at least slow down their loss of function.

Most exciting, if you preserve those rhythms successfully you may increase your life expectancy and stay healthier as you age. Let’s see what researchers are reporting from the latest studies.

One of the most important parts […]

Restoring the “Third Eye” May Hold the Secret to the Fountain of Youth

By |2020-03-19T11:38:55+00:00March 19th, 2020|Natural Health|

Imagine an anti-aging treatment with the ability to dramatically improve physical performance, boost bone density by 80 percent and lower overall mortality rate by 28 percent in people aged 70 to 90.

It’s hard to believe, I know, but research praised by an anti-aging lecturer at Stanford University showed these exact results. I got my hands on the studies that inspired his enthusiasm, and everything seems to check out.

The treatment is reportedly resulting in “unbelievable outcomes,” and entails nothing more than improving your “third eye.” What’s your third eye? Glad you asked…

The “third eye,” or “mind’s eye,” in Eastern spiritual traditions […]

The Power to Slow Aging is Mainly Under Your Control

By |2020-03-12T11:16:43+00:00March 12th, 2020|Natural Health|

Some people age so badly their bodies are decades older than the number of candles on their birthday cake.

In one example, researchers discovered the biological age of a 66-year-old was an astounding 114.

But it can work the other way too. One person aged 59 was discovered to have the body of a 23-year-old. The good news is, where you fall in the biological age spectrum largely comes down to something you can control – epigenetics.

We Can Improve Gene Expression

Some people believe there’s nothing they can do regarding their future health and life expectancy because of inherited genes.

True, the genes we […]

The Gut May Hold the Key to an Extended Lifespan

By |2020-03-05T09:47:59+00:00March 5th, 2020|Natural Health|

For hundreds of years Western medicine has separated treatment of health problems in the brain from health problems in the rest of the body, as if there’s no connection. Recently, scientists began rethinking this approach when they connected the health of a bacterial population residing in the gastrointestinal tract — called the microbiome — to the health of the brain.

The new research shows this “gut-brain” connection can potentially help heal a number of health problems and may even be involved in the aging process itself.

Gut Microbes Increase Production of New Brain Cells

The intestines contain a large and diverse range of […]

These Nutrients and Vitamins Can Keep Frailty Away

By |2020-02-27T11:40:00+00:00February 27th, 2020|Nutrition|

Getting frail as you age can ruin your life.

The chronic, weakening condition known as frailty restricts the life of one out of every four people over age 65. And by the time you’re in your 80s, your chance of becoming frail climbs to over 50 percent.

Frailty means you lose your ability to comfortably move around as your muscle tone basically vanishes and you lose much of the physical resilience needed to bounce back after a health issue like an infection, a fall or surgery.

Frailty increases your risk for poor health, disability and early death. But starting today you can easily […]
