Longevity Secrets Revealed

Aging has always been considered a fact of life, the natural progression of life and something that we need to accept and take for granted. The average life expectancy in the developed world sits at approximately 80 years old, and has come a long way from our cave man days. And 80 is a comfortable target, so why in the world would we want to extend on that? Why not just accept that our health clock will tick faster and louder starting at the age of 40 and continue to accelerate until we kick the bucket at around 80? Well, maybe you would like to get to know your great, great grandchildren? Maybe you would like to make your post-working life longer than your working life, so that you can enjoy everything that you have worked so hard for? Or maybe you just don’t want to go through all that suffering that comes with age like Diabetis, Alzheimers, Heart Disease, Cancer and Frailty?

Well, you may be in luck, as an Australian-born Biologist and Professor of Genetics at Harvard university, namely Dr David Sinclair, has spent the last 25 years of his life studying the causes of aging and what routines, diets and supplements may stop aging in its tracks and even reverse it. For now, most of the experimentation has been done on mice, fungi and single-celled organisms such as yeast, with human experiments still in progress, but evidence confirms that cell function, as well as aging is consistent across species and therefore humans would benefit from the same anti-aging treatments, diets and practices. He even goes so far as to declare that ageing is in fact a disease that is treatable. So, if you are interested in significantly increasing your chances of extending your lifespan by 15 – 20 years, whilst maximising your health-span, then consider the below take-aways from Dr Sinclair’s Book “Lifespan – Why We Age and Why We Don’t Have To”:
