Beat and reverse the aging in one easy step
I don't know about you, but when my birthday rolls around I feel like hiding the calendar.
It's not the calendar's fault we get older, of course. It's time itself -- more specifically, how time ages our bodies from the inside.
And while most people think of aging as an unstoppable and irreversible process, I'm here to tell you that's flat-out wrong -- because there's something you can do right now to slow, stop and maybe even reverse aging inside your body.
It's like adding pages to your calendar.
Ready for the best part of all? If you've been following my advice, you don't have to change a thing -- because the key to this life-extending wonder is locked inside of the fish oil that I hope you're already taking.
The omega-3 fatty acids found in fish oil work to protect your telomeres, which are the little DNA caps that sit on the ends of your chromosomes. As you get older and your cells reproduce, those telomeres get a little shorter.
As they get shorter, the list of risks you face gets longer -- including all the conditions we typically associate with aging: heart problems, dementia and even the worst aging "condition" of all, death.
In one new study, seniors were given daily supplements of either DHA or EPA -- the two main fatty acids found in fish oil -- or supplements of the omega-6 fatty acid linoleic acid.
The seniors on the omega-6 supplements saw their telomeres continue to shrink at the expected rate over the six-month study. But the seniors given either omega-3 fatty acid saw their telomere shrink rate slow to a crawl.
That's a sign that aging itself has been slowed to a crawl, a sign of reverse aging.
I'd say so far, so good -- but this gets even better, because the new study was on seniors already suffering from the early signs of mild cognitive impairment.
If you start sooner, before those problems set in, you could see an even bigger benefit. In fact, if you start right now, a fish oil supplement with both DHA and EPA likely won't just slow your telomere shrink.
It could actually reverse aging, and maybe even help your telomeres to grow longer, according to a remarkable study I told you about last year.
