Does Salt Age You?

By |2022-09-22T11:08:47+00:00September 22nd, 2022|Natural Health|

The first well-controlled study to test whether salt added to your plate leads to premature death has come up with a clear answer. Yes, it does.

The lead author suggests leaving the saltshaker in the kitchen cupboard—or getting rid of it permanently— to reap substantial health benefits.

Should we take his advice? Not every doctor agrees.

The relationship between dietary salt intake and health has been the subject of debate since doctors in France observed patients with high blood pressure were high salt users. And that was way back in 1904!

Other previous studies examining salt’s relationship with mortality have produced conflicting results. Low […]

Beat Back Heart Disease, Dementia, And Early Death With This “Virtual” Trick

By |2022-09-15T13:24:34+00:00September 15th, 2022|Lifestyle|

Fall is here. And while you’re probably ready for brisk air and changing leaves, the autumn season is the gateway to the dreary, shorter winter days – making it harder for those living in some areas to get out and about.

Thankfully, a new study shows a “virtual” trick that can help you stay active and social this fall and winter, without setting foot outside your front door.

Even better? Researchers say it can lower your risk of strokes, heart disease, cognitive decline, and even early death, especially if you’re a senior.

I’m talking about […]

“The Longevity Diet” That Can Add 20 Years To Your Lifespan

By |2022-09-08T08:56:01+00:00September 8th, 2022|Nutrition|

From vegan to Mediterranean to keto, experts differ on the healthiest diet to eat for longevity. So, how do we decide what’s best?

After a thorough review covering over a century of research, scientists say they’ve found the answer. They’ve determined that the best “longevity diet” is a diet that will not only prevent illness but slow down the aging process itself.

To get a clearer picture of the kind of diet that will lengthen our lives, Professor Valter Longo, at the University of Southern California, and Rozalyn Anderson, at the University of Wisconsin, examined a plethora of research.

“We explored the link […]

Can You Exercise Away A Bad Diet?

By |2022-09-01T01:03:09+00:00September 1st, 2022|Natural Health|

Remember that last time you indulged in a greasy pizza or gigantic slice of cheesecake? Perhaps you assuaged your guilt by telling yourself that you’d soon be exercising away the negative health effects.

Unfortunately, the latest research shows that it doesn’t work that way.

A new study, published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine suggests that dietary quality still matters even in those who are extra vigilant exercisers. Let’s take a look at this latest research.

“Sensationalized headlines and misleading advertisement for exercise regimens to lure consumers into the idea […]

“Flamingo Test” Determines Your Longevity

By |2022-08-25T11:22:42+00:00August 25th, 2022|Natural Health|

An international team of researchers believe a new test can reveal a lot about your state of health and your longevity.

Best of all, this test couldn’t be easier. I’ve dubbed it the “flamingo test” because it involves nothing more than standing on one leg like a flamingo.

Here’s what you need to know…

Unlike aerobic fitness and muscle strength and flexibility, balance tends to be reasonably well preserved until people reach their mid to late 50s, when it starts to wane.

For instance, between the ages of 40 and 49 a person can stand on one leg for an average of 42 seconds. […]

Does Time-Restricted Eating Really Extend Life?

By |2022-08-18T11:53:12+00:00August 18th, 2022|Natural Health|

From flies and worms to rodents and primates, numerous studies in laboratory animals have shown that calorie restriction extends lifespan. But translating calorie restriction to people over the long-term is all but impossible.

However, scientists say there’s another approach that can provide much of the benefit of calorie restriction without all the severe restriction.

I’m talking about time-restricted eating. Here’s what you need to know…

Many studies in a variety of lifeforms demonstrate that a considerable reduction in calories while – and this is key – maintaining intake of all necessary nutrients, delays aging and extends lifespan.

Until recently it wasn’t clear if time-restricted […]

This Anti-Aging Snack Should Be On Your Menu

By |2022-08-11T13:20:44+00:00August 11th, 2022|Nutrition|

Sometimes nutrients that can help you live significantly longer and healthier are discovered in unlikely places. For example, one snack is surprising researchers with its ability to help keep both your muscles and your memory strong with the passing years.

In fact, researchers say this snack food has so many health benefits it can even lengthen your life.

So, let’s take a closer look at the healthy snack that should be at the top of your grocery list….

I’m talking about walnuts. Studies show that walnuts contain a higher number of antioxidant compounds than any other common nut.1

These antioxidants don’t just help you […]

What Your Eyes Say About Your Longevity

By |2022-08-04T10:00:29+00:00August 4th, 2022|Natural Health|

When researchers recently investigated how our organs interact as we get older and how they influence our longevity, they got a shock.

Because when they examined the eyes to see how aging slowed down their performance, the researchers discovered that it wasn’t so much the aging of the rest of the body that caused dysfunction in the eyes, but that the eyes themselves were the driving force for aging in the rest of the body!

Here’s the surprising story…

Researchers at the Buck Institute for Research on Aging in Novato, California, performed a laboratory study that was designed to tease out relationships between […]

“Youth Fluid” Reverses Memory Loss

By |2022-07-28T10:15:37+00:00July 28th, 2022|Natural Health|

Horror movies and books have portrayed the harvesting and transplanting of blood and organs from the youthful to the aged as a means of increasing longevity.

Unimaginably, this grisly concept is given some credence by modern science. As a result, one opportunist offered young blood to the wealthy at $8,000 a liter before being shut down by regulators.

Fortunately, the science shows there’s a safer and far less gruesome way to use youthful cells and body fluids to tap into a longer lifespan.

A team at Stanford University has published several studies showing young blood from either mice or humans has a rejuvenating […]

For years, we’ve heard nothing but bad news about sugar…

It will ruin your heart… your brain… and even your waistline. And it’s all true. But I’m here to tell you there’s actually some GOOD news when it comes to sugar and your health.

In fact, a new study shows that adding a spoonful of sugar to your morning routine can help you live a longer, healthier life. Here’s exactly how to do it.

Most of us don’t need a good reason to add a spoonful of sugar to our morning coffee.

According to new research, adding a spoonful of sugar to your coffee […]
