Seeking the fountain of youth has been a quest of many people throughout history. In the past people have turned to mythology, religion and blind hope in the quest to live as long as possible.
We now live in an era where information is easily transmitted through the internet and science is prevelant.
There have been huge strides in recent history to ascertain the actual factors that contribute to the human process of aging and now we may finally be able to start to answer the question of how to live longer.
Here you will find a list of lifestyle changes that you can make right now in order to potentially live a longer and healthier life.
Blueprint for a Longer Life
- Reduce overall amount of calories without becoming malnourished
- Eat less often: Fast and try to limit yourself to 1-2 meals per day
- Eat a predominantly plant based diet
- Avoid sugar and carbohydrates where possible
- Eat more avocado, broccoli and cabbage (contain NMN)
- Target plants that are yellow, red, orange or blue
- Reduce overall protein – but when you do eat it do muscle exercise to direct protein to muscles
- Take supplements to increase the amount of NAD in your body
- NR (Nicotinamide riboside) – a cheaper less stable version of NMN
- Methyl B-12 & Methyl Folate and/or TMG
- Avoid Niacin derivatives: “Nicotinamide” or “Niacinamide” in vitamins – product can inhibit reaction with NMN supplements
Exercise and Physical Fitness
- Exercise 10 minutes a day – ensure that you are out of puff. HIIT training is ideal for this.
- Weightlifting – aim to lift heavier weights with less repetition and good form
Things to Avoid
- Products with high level of nicotinamide (niacin)
- Toxic substances such as pesticides, some plastics, mercury and others that can damage DNA
- Reduce overall stress levels
- Sugar spikes
- Too much sunlight and use sun protection when exposed
- X-Rays, CT scans & Airport scanners
- Some drugs – chemo
- Yellow die inkjet printers
Things to do
- Cold showers – making yourself cold promotes production of NAD
- Heat – Hot tubs or saunas
- 8+ hours sleep – lack of sleep will increase the aging process
