The Special Health Benefits of Racket Sports

By |2019-01-10T14:42:03+00:00January 10th, 2019|Natural Health|

Daily exercise is essential if you want to stay healthy and live a long life. You probably knew that. But you may not know that racket sports in particular can help you live longer.

Keep reading for the full scoop. . .

A study published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine1 looked at the link between six different types of exercise and the risk of early death. They found that adults who participated in racket sports lived longer than those who participated in solitary exercises such as jogging, swimming or cycling.

Researchers followed a vast group — 80,306 people, ranging in age […]

How an Intestinal Problem Can Make You Age Faster

By |2018-12-27T17:09:10+00:00December 27th, 2018|Natural Health|

When things get old they leak. That includes old pipes, dams, faucets and hoses.

And it also includes the walls of your digestive tract. Those leaks – known as leaky gut syndrome – are more than a mere annoyance. They make you age faster.

Researchers believe that much of the health-damaging inflammation that accompanies aging – sometimes called inflammaging – is linked to our increasingly leaky guts that allow harmful substances to pass through the intestinal wall and into the bloodstream.

Here’s what you can do about this. . .

Breaching the Barrier

When everything is functioning as it should, the thin mucosal layer that […]

Pack on This Type of Fat and Live Longer

By |2018-12-06T13:17:18+00:00December 6th, 2018|Natural Health|

Most of us want to live a long life, but only if our later years are spent in good health. The buzzword these days isn’t “lifespan,” it’s “healthspan” – how long can you enjoy life to the fullest?

That’s why, for the past 20 years, scientists and researchers have been working hard to find ways for people to enjoy a longer healthspan. And according to some researchers, a certain fat naturally found in our bodies could be the answer.

Yes, this is a fat you WANT.

As I hinted, the fat I’m talking about is not just any fat.  The secret lies in […]

Maple Leaf Extract: Has Botox Met Its Match?

By |2018-11-16T01:09:57+00:00November 15th, 2018|Natural Health|

From lovely fall foliage to delicious syrup, the mighty maple tree has much to offer, and now scientists have discovered it may also help keep skin youthful.

University of Rhode Island researchers presented their interesting new findings at the 256th National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society (ACS) in August 2018.

According to Navindra P. Seeram, Ph.D., the project’s principal investigator, the scientists had previously studied the chemistry and health benefits of sap and syrup obtained from the sugar maple and red maple trees.

But the part of the tree with the most promising youth secret is not something you’d normally […]

Dynamic Duo Slows Down Aging and Tames Brain Inflammation

By |2018-10-25T11:11:57+00:00October 25th, 2018|Natural Health|

With millions each year suffering traumatic brain injuries and chronic disorders like Alzheimer’s, seeking new ways to protect the brain has become a top priority.

Thankfully, renowned author, clinical nutritionist, and pharmacist James LaValle — who operates at the cutting edge of longevity and rejuvenation science — has invented an innovative dietary supplement that seems to help meet these needs.

The new offering combines two little-known ingredients that between them have powerful anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and anti-aging effects. It’s called Synapsin.

Calorie Restriction Without Dieting

Long-time readers of this newsletter know that animals on a calorie-restricted diet stay healthier for longer, age more slowly and […]

Tai Chi’s Slow and Easy Motions Slow Down Aging

By |2018-09-27T12:06:01+00:00September 27th, 2018|Natural Health|

Long ago, the series of movements called tai chi originated in China as a form of martial arts.

Today, instead of being used to fight human enemies, tai chi’s easy-to-learn, graceful, steady motions are mainly used to fight off aging.

Here are some of the practical benefits of this popular meditative exercise.

Although tai chi’s slow movements don’t seem to require much exertion, research shows that it produces significant health benefits. It can bring on changes in the body that push back against the aches, pains and physical problems that beset us with the passing years.

Air Pollution is Stealing as Much as 10 Years Off Your Life

By |2018-09-06T03:51:07+00:00September 6th, 2018|Natural Health|

Nine million people each year die at an earlier age than they have to because of air pollution. It’s the world’s biggest environmental cause of disease and early death. But progress in tackling it has been slow. In many countries, environmental needs range from low to no priority.

Recently, the UK’s Chief Medical Officer said, “This needs to change. As a society we need to regain a focus on pollution as a threat to human health.”

A study focusing on only one type of air pollution has just been published. This particular toxin alone was found to reduce lifespan by one year […]

New Blood Test Reveals How Long You’ll Live

By |2018-08-10T06:00:31+00:00August 9th, 2018|Natural Health|

To calculate someone’s life expectancy, scientists look for molecular changes that take place in cells. This approach determines mortality risk by focusing on a person’s rate of aging (biological age) as distinct from their chronological age.

But a novel approach has emerged that takes information from routine blood tests carried out at a doctor’s office. Proponents of the new strategy suggest these readily-available measurements can be used as a practical, accurate and easy-to-interpret “lifespan calculator.”

Unlike genetic tests, which provide information that’s engraved in stone, the blood data used to establish biological age can be modified by lifestyle changes to increase an […]

New Breakthrough May Dramatically Slow Aging

By |2018-07-26T09:10:29+00:00July 26th, 2018|Natural Health|

“We believe we’ve found the holy grail.”

That’s not the kind of statement you normally expect to hear from a well-respected scientist.

His colleague didn’t hold back either: “We may be able to take a 60-year-old’s cells and make them 40.”

That sure got my attention. Here’s the scoop. . .

The discovery by these researchers from Australia only came about because they were curious to know how a living microorganism was able to survive in a very hostile environment.

They never imagined it would develop into a method of turning back the clock of aging.

Same Protein Shared by Ancient Microbes and Modern Humans

The breakthrough came […]

Previously Overlooked Part of the Cell May be Key to Aging

By |2018-07-12T07:19:59+00:00July 12th, 2018|Natural Health|

Researchers who examine the aging process believe they may have found the cellular structure that holds the key to aging

And their investigations indicate that size matters.

Because they’ve found evidence that when this microscopic part of the cell is relatively compact and small, your odds of living to a ripe old age take a leap. But if it gets bigger, that can signal a greater risk of dying young.

Important news for all of us.

The Cell’s Mini Protein Factory

The structure that has aging experts excited is called the nucleolus. It‘s so small, it’s contained within each cell’s nucleus, and it’s kind of […]
