About Longevity

We live in a time when dramatic developments are happening in longevity research. This new knowledge will give us the capability to live longer than our forebears could ever have imagined, as we take advantage of our ability to control our health and well-being. Changes in life expectancy may also have profound affects on just about everything including employment, relationships, the economy, family and even religion.

Change is often difficult not only for societies, but for us as individuals.

Our Approach

It is one thing to know what the latest research tells us about how we need to live a longer and healthier life. Lifestyle changes are always difficult though, so we will be bringing you news articles and ideas which are sensible, targeted and achievable.

To live longer good nutrition is essential. Diets need to be appropriate for the country, culture, stage of life and even family traditions. To live longer, appropriate nutrition is essential to giving yourself the best chance of avoiding life threatening illnesses. We will be making some recommendations.

Exercise: how to live a longer and healthier lifeAnother key lifestyle issue is fitness, which will not only make you stronger, but is also important in avoidance of disease. The fact is, most people don’t like to exercise and to do so requires some reprogramming of the mind and a change of habits.

What is needed is an achievable exercise program and one that doesn’t cost the earth to join or maintain. Exercise is also valuable in dealing with stress. It is also important to live a balanced life, making time for family, friends and career as well as yourself.

Taking anti-aging supplements is a lot easier than dieting and fitness. However finding the products which are the best value for money is hard. What we have done and will continue to do, is to seek out products worldwide which have a good foundation in research. We find supplements where the purest ingredients are used and all the ingredients are published. We are interested in companies which have a quick and personalized response to questions. We are impressed with companies which are not defensive about competing products.

How to live longer and healthier life is relevant to everyone whether young or not so young, but it can be difficult not to get swamped in information overload. We hope in a small way, to be able to help.
