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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

This Simple Ten-Minute Activity That Can Add Decades to Your Life

By |2022-07-14T10:31:34+00:00July 14th, 2022|Natural Health|

It’s easy to dismiss the idea that putting one foot in front of the other could be one of the very best ways to avoid an early grave.

Don’t worry, I’m not referring to jogging; merely walking.

It seems too easy an activity to provide major health benefits, yet research keeps mounting to show that’s precisely what it’s capable of.

Walking is a simple activity, accessible by people of all ages, and shown to confer many physical, mental, and social health benefits with minimal adverse effects.

Researchers at the University of Leicester, England, had previously shown that as little as ten minutes of brisk […]

Your Grandma’s Secret to Longevity

By |2022-07-07T10:20:45+00:00July 7th, 2022|Natural Health|

There’s a room in your house that holds the key to longer life expectancy and a healthier old age. And chances are it’s a place where your parents and grandparents spent more time than you do. But researchers now say that for your own well-being you’d be smart to borrow a habit from them and go there more, too.

The room I’m talking about isn’t a home gym. It’s the kitchen…

The latest medical research demonstrates that it’s not how much time you spend in the gym, but how much time you use your kitchen that’s the crucial factor for better health.

Why Aging Makes You More Generous…

By |2022-06-23T14:13:42+00:00June 23rd, 2022|Natural Health|

When aged 67, the one-time richest man in the world, J. Paul Getty, famously installed a coin-operated pay phone in his mansion for his guests. His miserliness never waned, even with advancing age.

But he’s the exception that proves the rule because as we non-billionaires get older, we become kinder, more caring, more generous and have greater life satisfaction, according to the latest research.

The physical and cognitive effects of aging have been extensively studied but aging also brings about changes in social behavior and emotional responses.

Seniors spend more time volunteering and donate a larger proportion of their income to good causes […]
