Investigations into the aging process indicate that a good part of the secret to feeling younger starts at the cellular level, with the mitochondria – the organelles in each cell that produce energy.

And one natural substance is drawing a lot of attention, not only for helping to boost cellular energy production, but also for a wealth of other benefits – from possibly improving eye health, to increasing muscle function and even making skin look more youthful.

You’ll want to know all about this compound known as NMN, short for nicotinamide mononucleotide, because research shows it […]

It’s not news that fruits and vegetables can fight the diseases of aging, but here’s something you may not know: They can help you live 31 percent longer.

Unfortunately, the vast majority of Americans– nine out of ten– aren’t eating enough of these food groups, according to both the Centers for Disease Control and the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

So, how many fruits and vegetables do you need to make a difference in your longevity? Let’s take a look at the latest research.

A few small studies linked a lower intake of fruits and vegetables to a greater chance of death, but the […]

These Two Foods Give You 
Younger-Looking Skin

For many of us it’s no fun to gaze into the mirror, see those fine lines form, and then grow longer, deeper and wider over the years. That’s why there’s a rapidly growing market for anti-wrinkle creams, but just as powerful—or maybe even more so—are the dietary choices you make every single day.

In addition to eating lots of vegetables, there are two other foods that reduce wrinkles and smooth skin. Here’s the story…

Lifestyle and environmental factors can lead to premature aging of the skin, of which wrinkles are the most obvious sign. Smoking is one such factor; so is obesity; […]

The Little-Known Longevity Vitamin That’s Key to Longer Life

By |2020-09-24T13:52:46+00:00September 24th, 2020|Nutrition|

When researchers at Tufts University took a look at the health and vitamin levels of about 4,000 Americans in their 50s, 60s and 70s over the course of 13 years, they made a surprising discovery…

They found one little-known vitamin was linked to a lower risk of death from all causes.

This vitamin, vitamin K, doesn’t get much attention in the health world, but the research is clear: if you run short of it, your life may be a few years shorter than it could be.

Vitamin K is a fat-soluble vitamin found in certain vegetables, legumes and meat.

It’s critical to a healthy […]

If you’re wondering if medical researchers will come up with a longevity pill that can help you live longer, you might be excited to find out that they’re making headway.

Of course, it will be years until an actual anti-aging pill makes it to the market, but the good news is that the natural compound they’re most interested in – the one that shows the most promise – is available right now.

In fact, you can have some of this powerful life-extending nutrient with your dinner tonight.

I’m talking about resveratrol.

While you’ve already heard a lot about this anti-aging chemical found in red […]

Is Plant Protein the Fountain of Youth?

By |2020-08-27T12:56:07+00:00August 27th, 2020|Nutrition|

Diets high in protein, particularly plant protein, have been linked to lower risks of developing diabetes, heart disease and stroke. However, regular consumption of protein-rich red meat and high intake of animal proteins has been linked to several health problems.1

Despite the research, there hasn’t been a definitive answer on which protein is better for longevity. That’s why I was intrigued by a massive new research review by Harvard scientists that finds a correlation between longevity and certain kinds of protein.

Let’s dig into these interesting new findings.

In what is the largest analysis to date on protein and mortality rates, researchers from […]

This Anti-Aging Vitamin Can Strengthen Your Muscles

By |2020-05-07T12:21:47+00:00May 7th, 2020|Nutrition|

When a 51-year-old Australian woman came into her doctor’s office for help managing her type-2 diabetes, one of her main complaints was muscle pain. Her legs would hurt after only walking one block. And on “bad days” she could hardly brush her hair. The pain was too intense.

But diabetes was not the only source of her discomfort.

Instead, her doctor found she was low in a vitamin that only about two of ten older people get enough of – vitamin D.1 After she started taking a daily dose of 1,000 IU of vitamin D – a low dose, in my opinion […]

How to Reverse Brain Aging Through Diet

Scientists have studied longevity in numerous animal species, from fruit flies to rodents to monkeys, and in almost every case they found that calorie restriction extends life span. But why?

Ketone bodies offer at least part of the explanation.

Ketone bodies are three natural compounds produced in the liver when the body metabolizes fat. Science shows the body can use ketones as replacement fuel when glucose — the body’s preferred source of fuel — isn’t available.

This means that by drastically curtailing carbs and upping your fat intake, you can turn your body into “a fat-burning machine” as the keto marketers like to […]

These Nutrients and Vitamins Can Keep Frailty Away

By |2020-02-27T11:40:00+00:00February 27th, 2020|Nutrition|

Getting frail as you age can ruin your life.

The chronic, weakening condition known as frailty restricts the life of one out of every four people over age 65. And by the time you’re in your 80s, your chance of becoming frail climbs to over 50 percent.

Frailty means you lose your ability to comfortably move around as your muscle tone basically vanishes and you lose much of the physical resilience needed to bounce back after a health issue like an infection, a fall or surgery.

Frailty increases your risk for poor health, disability and early death. But starting today you can easily […]

Vitamin D Deficiency Triples Risk of an Early Death

As long-time readers of this newsletter know, maintaining healthy vitamin D levels is critical to your good health. Brand-new research shows just how powerful vitamin D is, revealing that your very longevity might depend on healthy vitamin D levels.

But at the same time there’s lots of debate on what constitutes a “healthy” vitamin D level and just how much vitamin D you need to supplement with to achieve it. Let’s take a closer look at the research and what the experts say.

Vitamin D is a well-known factor in bone health, but it also plays many other important health roles throughout […]
