Why Your Level of Resilience Determines How Long You’ll Live

By |2021-07-08T11:05:09+00:00July 8th, 2021|Natural Health|

Researchers are on constant search for therapies that can extend human life and help us remain healthy, active and indepedent as we age.

One important new study reveals that an extra 70 years of healthy life may be attainable and not just pie-in-the-sky thinking.

The research suggests that we could potentially live up to the age of 150 if we can figure out how to maximize one important human trait. Let’s take a closer look…

Anti-aging researchers look to biological age as a strong indicator of a person’s health status – and hence how long […]

Is Pomegranate the Key to Slow Aging?

By |2021-07-01T12:03:14+00:00July 1st, 2021|Nutrition|

Described as a potential “game-changer for human health”, a recently discovered molecule is improving muscle strength, improving symptoms of neurological disease and boosting the lifespan of sick laboratory animals by over 40 percent.

Researchers believe it works by supercharging your cells’ mitochondria, and in the process, is helping solve one of the root causes of aging.

This molecule is called Urolithin A and it’s a metabolite— or a compound produced as a result of the digestion of nutrients called ellagitannins, which are prevalent in foods like pomegranate.

Researchers believe Urolithin A has the power to rejuvenate aging mitochondria, by boosting a process called […]

The Right “Steps” to Use Exercise For a Longer Life

By |2021-06-24T16:06:19+00:00June 24th, 2021|Natural Health|

If you’re a regular reader of this site, you have read plenty regarding the health and longevity benefits of exercise. With that said, researchers are still searching for the best type of exercise to promote longevity.

Do you really need to jog for miles or can simple walking and household activities suffice? How long do you need to exercise? Two new studies attempt to uncover some answers. Let’s see what researchers are saying…

One study takes a look at the longevity benefits of walking. And researchers made an encouraging discovery: adding more steps to your day, whether all at once or in […]

Revolutionary New Home Test Reveals Your Biological Age

By |2021-06-17T11:17:06+00:00June 17th, 2021|Natural Health|

Aging is not just about genes as so many people imagine. Lifestyle choices matter, too. In fact, for many people poor lifestyle choices such as smoking and remaining sedentary can be the tipping point into aging and illness.

While for others, healthy lifestyle choices such as exercise and nutritious diet can slow down the aging process and dramatically improve health.

This realization has led to the search for molecular markers that can tell whether we’re aging well or badly. Now scientists in England say they’ve found one powerful marker that can be tested at home.

The marker is called a glycan.

Glycans are molecules […]

How Child-Like Curiosity Can Lengthen Your Life

By |2021-06-10T14:00:24+00:00June 10th, 2021|Natural Health|

Ever spend time with an inquisitive child? The questions are non-stop, ranging from “why is the sky blue?” to “how does a car move?” In fact, one study estimated that curious children ask a staggering 73 questions a day!1 For those of us with children, grandchildren or young nieces and nephews this is hardly surprising.

But sadly, as we age, that wellspring of curiosity begins to run dry.

The latest research shows we should do our best not to let that happen. That’s because the science suggests that remaining curious can help us live longer, healthier lives.

It’s true, curiosity is good for […]

The Answer to Alzheimer’s Could Lie in SuperAgers

By |2021-06-03T11:45:44+00:00June 3rd, 2021|Natural Health|

When searching for a cure for Alzheimer’s, most scientists look at existing brain degeneration and try to figure out how to fix it. What might we find out if we looked instead at the brains of people with superior brain health? That’s what a group of researchers at the University of Chicago asked themselves.

They chose elderly people with exceptional memories to see why their brains perform so well. Their findings may lead to new strategies to save cognition and uncover new treatments for Alzheimer’s disease.

The term SuperAgers refers to people over the age of 80 whose memories are as good […]

Harvard Doctor’s Go-To Anti-Aging Supplement

By |2021-05-27T11:00:04+00:00May 27th, 2021|Nutrition|

Investigations into the aging process indicate that a good part of the secret to feeling younger starts at the cellular level, with the mitochondria – the organelles in each cell that produce energy.

And one natural substance is drawing a lot of attention, not only for helping to boost cellular energy production, but also for a wealth of other benefits – from possibly improving eye health, to increasing muscle function and even making skin look more youthful.

You’ll want to know all about this compound known as NMN, short for nicotinamide mononucleotide, because research shows it […]

Why Do Some People Age Faster Than Others?

By |2021-05-20T11:15:13+00:00May 20th, 2021|Natural Health|

Everyone knows a sprightly 80-something who can dance the night away and remember the punch line of every joke. But sadly, there are also plenty of 50-somethings who move and act considerably older than their years.

It’s a conundrum that scientists never tire of studying.

Now, new research further explores how different folks seem to age at significantly different rates. And it turns out, the fast-agers and the slow-agers are already on radically different roads from the time they’re young.

“Aging isn’t something that happens suddenly when people reach their 60s, it’s a lifelong process,” said Maxwell Elliott, a doctoral student at Duke […]

Disrupted Sleep Leads to an Early Grave

By |2021-05-13T11:41:24+00:00May 13th, 2021|Natural Health|

While research has long suggested a link between interrupted sleep and an increased risk of death, the latest research confirms, without a doubt, that it’s true.

Perhaps most surprising is the definition of “interrupted sleep” used by researchers in this study. According to them, interrupted sleep doesn’t have to involve consciously waking up a number of times during the night as you might expect. What they define as a sleep interruption can happen without the victim even being aware of it. In fact, if you wake up tired and exhausted in the morning, this may well apply to you.

Duration of sleep, […]

Scientific Surprise Reverses Aging by Rejuvenating the Immune System

By |2021-05-06T13:35:16+00:00May 6th, 2021|Natural Health|

Scientists at Stanford were focused on regenerating the thymus gland—the gland that’s critical to immune health.

They succeeded in their efforts, but the best was yet to come.

Their remarkable experiment resulted in not only a healthy, renewed thymus gland, but people in the study actually grew biologically younger. Here’s the amazing story.

Described by scientists as “the master gland of the immune system,” the thymus – located in the chest between the lungs and the breast bones – converts white blood cells to T cells. These cells play an important role in the immune response. The thymus also produces a variety of […]
