LONGEVITY MEDICINE

So how does a longevity lifestyle look like?

  • Eat healthy, which for most people consists of a Paleo like diet. 

  • Practice portion control. Caloric restriction has been shown to extend life and to prevent many chronic diseases.

  • Know your vulnerabilities. If your parents suffered from a specific disease, you too might be at risk.

  • Stay away from toxins like tobacco, alcohol and drugs.

  • Avoid exposure to chemicals, heavy metals, pesticides and mold.

  • Cope with stress by taking up meditation or yoga.

  • Sleep 7 to 8 hours with sufficient deep sleep and REM sleep.

  • Exercise daily and keep your muscles strong.

  • Keep your friends close and engage yourself in the community.

  • Cultivate a spiritual outlook that provides purpose and meaning.

A healthy lifestyle is the main ingredient of a long life. There is no magic pill that will keep you forever young, but the following supplements can help:

  • Curcumin

  • Resveratrol

  • Omega 3

  • NAC

  • Nicotinamide ribosome and nicotinamide mono nucleotide

  • CoQ-10

  • Vitamin C and bioflavonoids

  • Adaptogens like Astragalus and Rodiola

 

Fasting has powerful rejuvenating effects on body and brain by stimulating stem cell release, repairing DNA, increasing insulin sensitivity and mitochondrial production, and promoting brain plasticity and neurogenesis. Intermittent Fasting is an easy way to start reaping the benefits of fasting.
