Could This be the Most Important Food for Living Longer?

When researchers looked around the globe to discover which populations enjoy the longest life exptectancy, they focused on several different groups who consistently outlive the rest of us.

After they analyzed what these people were eating, they found differences among the various cultures and a variety of ways that they prepared their meals. However, there was one food all these long-lived folks had in common despite their differing lifestyles and locations throughout the world.

Now, many researchers consider this food to be “the most important dietary predictor of survival of older people of different ethnicities.”1

The food I’m talking about is legumes.

Legumes are […]

Is Pomegranate the Key to Slow Aging?

Described as a potential “game-changer for human health”, a recently discovered molecule is improving muscle strength, improving symptoms of neurological disease and boosting the lifespan of sick laboratory animals by over 40 percent.

Researchers believe it works by supercharging your cells’ mitochondria, and in the process, is helping solve one of the root causes of aging.

This molecule is called Urolithin A and it’s a metabolite— or a compound produced as a result of the digestion of nutrients called ellagitannins, which are prevalent in foods like pomegranate.

Researchers believe Urolithin A has the power to rejuvenate aging mitochondria, by boosting a process called […]

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 […]

These Foods Could Help You Live 31 Percent Longer

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 […]

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 […]

Just a Little of this Longevity Nutrient Triggers Genes to Fight Aging

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 […]
