New Technique Makes Middle-Aged Skin Look Thirty Years Younger

By |2022-06-02T03:47:51-04:00June 2nd, 2022|Natural Health|

In a process that could revolutionize regenerative medicine, scientists have developed a way to rejuvenate human skin cells.

The new technique winds the biological clock back ten times further than previous methods.

While still in its infancy, it has exciting implications for restoring youth and vitality, and overcoming the diseases of aging. Here’s the story…

Fifteen years ago, Shinya Yamanaka developed a way to reprogram adult skin cells so they could be turned into primitive embryonic cells called induced pluripotent stem cells (IPSCs). He achieved this scientific breakthrough by inserting just four genes into the cells. These became known as “Yamanaka factors.”

But there’s […]

Does Our DNA Hold the Key to Living Longer?

By |2022-05-26T10:16:37-04:00May 26th, 2022|Natural Health|

In the search for the keys to living longer, researchers are beginning to make more detailed examinations of what happens in our DNA – our central genetic material – as we get older.

The evidence they’re discovering shows that what goes on in those complicated molecules may hold important clues to extending our life expectancy. So, let’s take a peek at what these eye-opening investigations have found.

When researchers from the Wellcome Sanger Institute in England analyzed the DNA genomes of 16 species of mammals, including a variety of animals from giraffes to rodents as well as humans, the scientists discovered that […]

Tiny Berry Can Stop Vision Loss As You Age

Losing your vision can send your quality of life into a tailspin. Things like driving to the store, taking your dog for a walk, or even recognizing a loved one’s face can become challenging… and dangerous.

Even worse? Your chances of developing a life-changing eye disease, like age-related macular degeneration (AMD), increase as you age.

But the latest science suggests that vision problems don’t have to be part of your golden years. Researchers are pointing to a new, natural way to stop AMD in its tracks. And all you have to do is eat a handful […]

Want To Live Longer? Eat Breakfast At This Time…

By |2022-05-12T10:23:32-04:00May 12th, 2022|Natural Health|

A new field is emerging that looks at meal timing and its influence on health. It’s called chrono-nutrition. The latest study in the field examined whether the timing of breakfast has an impact on human longevity.

The researchers found that, yes, the timing of breakfast does in fact influence your longevity. Here’s what you need to know to take advantage of this new science…

A study published last year found eating fruits with lunch, vegetables at dinner and a dairy snack in the evening reduced the risk of death from heart disease or from any cause.

The latest study looked at the relationship […]

Do Long-Lived Dogs Hold the Secret to Our Longevity?

By |2022-05-05T06:05:52-04:00May 5th, 2022|Natural Health|

Longevity scientist Dr. Daniel Promislow had a eureka moment in 2007 while looking at the cover of a magazine. It pictured a Great Dane next to a chihuahua and discussed how a single gene accounts for the huge variation in size.

Since it’s well-known that small breeds of dogs live much longer lives than large ones, Dr. Promislow wondered whether the gene is also important to canine lifespan. What he found not only reveals new information about extending the lives of man’s best friend, but could make a difference in our lifespan, too.

Human aging has been studied extensively but little is […]

Herbal Extract Might Help You Live 40 Percent Longer

By |2022-04-28T02:27:53-04:00April 28th, 2022|Natural Health|

Researchers at Louisiana State University (LSU) say they’ve uncovered evidence that an herbal extract could potentially help us live much, much longer lives if we started taking it while we were young.

Furthermore, their tests show that older folks taking it could still possibly extend their life expectancy by 20 percent.1

The reason: The extract contains natural chemicals that improve metabolic health. That means this herb could help the body absorb and use food more efficiently and moderate blood sugar while maintaining the well-being of our organs and the way nutrients are distributed in the blood stream. Here’s the exciting new research.

How Laughter Can Lengthen Your Life

By |2022-04-21T04:24:09-04:00April 21st, 2022|Natural Health|

In the Bible, Proverbs 17:22 says, “A merry heart is good medicine.” And there’s plenty of anecdotal evidence and scientific research to support this Biblical view.

Until recently, researchers hadn’t confirmed scientifically how laughter affects the health of seniors and whether everyday laughter could really help seniors remain healthy and independent. This has now been shown to be true. But it’s not just laughter alone that’s important, it’s who you laugh with.

Laughter has many health benefits. It boosts immunity, reduces symptoms of depression, raises mood, lowers blood pressure, improves blood sugar control in diabetics, and prevents cognitive decline.

These wonderful benefits led […]

What’s The Best Exercise for a Longer Life?

By |2022-04-14T12:07:24-04:00April 14th, 2022|Natural Health|

As most people seem to know, just about any type of exercise can improve your life expectancy and overall health.

But now, researchers in Kansas say they know exactly which exercises consistently offer the greatest improvements in longevity.

To analyze how exercise can extend life, these researchers examined health data on thousands of people, investigating which types of physical activity they performed and then compiling longevity results based on how long folks lived.

Researchers Followed 25 Years of Physical Activity 

The Kansas researchers who delved into the particulars of exercise and life expectancy used data collected in the Copenhagen City Heart Study, a […]

This Daily Grind Keeps Your Heart Healthy and Lengthens Your Life

By |2022-04-07T12:23:25-04:00April 7th, 2022|Natural Health|

Stress abounds in today’s world. Some people liken our busy modern lifestyle to a rat race or a daily grind. But instead of burdening you with stress, partaking in one daily grind can relieve it. I’m talking about drinking coffee.

If you love coffee then keep reading, because I’ve got good news about your beloved daily drink that many medical “experts” have implored you to steer well clear of.

They claim studies performed over the last century link coffee drinking to a wide range of diseases. However, those coffee drinkers were often smokers, and researchers rarely took this factor into consideration when […]

Wave Goodbye to Steaks and Sausages and Add Ten Years to Your Life

By |2022-03-31T14:47:49-04:00March 31st, 2022|Natural Health|

Replacing a “typical Western diet” with a healthy “optimized diet” can add years to your life at any age, even in your sunset years, a major new study reveals.

This will be challenging for many, however. It means giving up red and processed meat, and embracing lentils, beans, and peas instead.

For those reluctant to abandon their juicy steaks and hot dogs, the authors suggest a compromise, eating what’s called a “feasibility diet.” The good news: even this more modest change can significantly increase life expectancy.

There are thousands of studies that show how food choices affect our health, but researchers at the […]
