HMB: The Muscle-Building Supplement That Can Save You From Frailty (No Exercise Necessary!)

By |2023-07-20T12:00:42-04:00July 20th, 2023|Uncategorized|

It sounds like a couch potato’s dream but there really may be a way of enhancing muscle mass and strength while sidestepping physical exercise.

While this isn’t necessarily a good thing for any couch potatoes out there, preserving and increasing muscle mass is a vital issue for older people. That’s because the natural loss of muscle mass with aging can cause a decline in your energy, strength, balance, and your ability to move easily.

What’s more, loss of muscle mass also has a negative impact on your overall health. For instance, it increases the risk of diabetes and puts you at a […]

“Sweet friendships refresh the soul and awaken our hearts with joy.” What was taught in the Book of Proverbs is just as true today.

The health benefits of socializing are well established, but is there any positive impact of having friendships for older folks and the elderly? A major new study answered this question with a resounding yes.

Here’s what you need to know about the health benefits of having friends in your Golden Years.

The concept of ‘successful aging’ has become an important topic. To achieve this the emphasis has been put on a number of healthy behaviors such as improving your […]

Is Your BMI Lying About Your Longevity?

By |2023-07-18T08:40:00-04:00July 6th, 2023|Anti-Aging|

Conventional medicine points to obesity and carrying excess weight as a risk factor for death only in the morbidly obese. But that’s not true.

According to a new study they’re wrong. And what these researchers found might affect you even if your body mass index, or BMI, is only slightly above normal. Here’s what you need to know.

The new study found that you don’t have to be morbidly obese for your waistline to steal years from your life.

How is BMI related to mortality?

Researchers at Colorado University at Boulder found that people who are simply overweight—not obese– are nine times more […]

New Study Shows How You Can Reverse Aging

Look in the mirror and you’ll see an older you than in previous years. The cellular damage this reflects is seen not just in your skin but in organs and tissues throughout your body. It can lead to loss of immune system function, chronic illnesses such as heart disease, memory-wasting diseases like Alzheimer’s as well as cancer.

This journey to old age is not all bad news though. Because recent studies provide fresh hope that biological aging isn’t inevitable. In fact, a new scientific study in both mice and humans suggests you can reverse your biological age and extend your lifespan.

Nut Consumption and Risk of Cardiovascular Disease: Are Peanuts Good For The Heart?

By |2023-07-18T08:41:31-04:00June 22nd, 2023|Anti-Aging|

When it comes to eating healthy, the mainstream still gets it wrong.

They’ll tell you to trade in your favorite foods for sugar-free, fat-free, chemical-ladened Franken-snacks. But that’s a terrible idea for anyone who cares about their heart health and wants to fight cardiovascular disease.

The best advice is to eat foods in as close to their natural state as possible. Fresh fruits, vegetables, healthy fats- such as coconut oil – whole grains, and lean meats are filled with heart healthy nutrients. Nuts are also a great addition to a healthy diet when it comes to stopping cardiovascular disease.

So, when you’re at […]

Age-Promoting Zombie Cells Can Be Zapped Back To Life

By |2023-07-18T08:42:13-04:00June 15th, 2023|Anti-Aging|

“‘Is this too good to be true?’ is the question I often ask,” says Dr. Michael Sheetz, an award-winning mechanobiologist who has taught at Duke Medical School, Columbia and now at the University of Texas. His astonishment at this therapy’s effectiveness is understandable because it reverses a key driver of aging – senescent cells, sometimes called zombie cells.

Researchers are testing drugs to see if they can flush these aging and disease promoting cells from the body. But Dr. Sheetz’s approach is quite different. He’s not aiming to eliminate these zombie cells, but to revitalize them.

In our sixties and beyond senescent […]

Amazing Anti-Aging Protein Turns Back Time

By |2023-07-18T08:43:02-04:00June 8th, 2023|Anti-Aging|

Recently, some anti-aging researchers have argued for more people to start taking rapamycin, a drug that has been used to prevent organ transplant rejection, to slow the aging process.

Rapamycin can reduce inflammation, lower the risk of some cancers and fight against viral infections.

However, even though animal tests show that rapamycin can increase longevity, it comes with a concerning list of possible side effects – including immune system disfunction, digestive issues, anemia and swollen hands and feet.

But you have another choice. A remarkable protein that conveys some of the exact same anti-aging benefits as rapamycin, but without the side effects.

This protein […]

Does Your Nose Contain A Hidden Longevity Secret?

By |2023-05-31T11:56:47-04:00June 1st, 2023|Natural Health|

The most common problems affecting the eyes and ears can be corrected with lenses and hearing aids. But there’s no implement that can give a leg up to another important sense that can fade with aging. And that’s our sense of smell.

As we reported here last year, cognitive decline is already linked to a failing sniffer. Now, a new study shows flunking a smell test is linked to more than just dementia. It also predicts impending frailty and death.

A stuffy nose from a cold or flu will diminish our sense of smell but it quickly bounces back once we’ve healed […]

Enjoy The “Blue Zone” Protein Of Long Life

By |2023-05-31T11:56:26-04:00May 25th, 2023|Nutrition|

A group of scientists who study what makes some people live longer than others are now saying that one unique protein could be an important key to increased life expectancy.

They’ve made this discovery by investigating areas of the world where people tend to survive to an older age than in the rest of the world – locations that have been designated as “blue zones.” Within the category of blue zones, one little village named Ogimi, located in Okinawa, seems to be just about the bluest of all since its residents live to age 100 and more at a remarkable rate.

And […]

Does Being Religious Stave Off The Grave?

By |2023-05-17T10:14:01-04:00May 18th, 2023|Lifestyle|

People attend places of worship to praise their God, hear messages of hope and spiritually bond with others in their religious community. Yet engaging with religion delivers benefits way beyond the spiritual.

According to the latest science, believing in a loving, benevolent God also promotes a healthier, longer life. Here’s the story…

Studies show that the greater the attendance at religious services among different faiths, the greater the health benefits. Attendance at religious services is linked to lower blood pressure, a reduced incidence of physical disability, less depression, and lower rates of death from heart disease and from any other cause.

All these […]
