Beat aging with this key ingredient
They say you can't turn back the clock... go back in time... or stop aging.
Well, I'm here to say "they" are 100 percent wrong!
No, you can't go back to 1997 and buy Apple stock for $3.56 a share... but your cells can stop the clock and fight the effects of age... IF you give them what they need for a little cellular time travel.
And the latest research spots a key ingredient for your age-defying journey: FIBER.
The more fiber you eat, the less likely you'll suffer from all the diseases that kill seniors, including high blood pressure, diabetes, dementia, cancer and more.
A staple of the Mediterranean diet, it can prevent respiratory problems and heart disease and slash your risk of a stroke.
It can cut your risk of mental-health problems such as depression, and even prevent disability... ensuring that you spend your senior years enjoying every moment, running rings around folks half your age.
Believe or not, I've saved the best for last. According to the new study out of Australia, there's one more big benefit of a high-fiber diet: It could add YEARS to your life, cutting your risk of death from all causes over 10 years,.
There's not a drug in the world that can make that promise... and if there were, you can bet it would cost a small fortune and come with debilitating side effects.
Instead, you can get it by simply boosting your intake of humble fiber-rich foods such as avocados and apples.
With an average intake of just 16 grams per day, most Americans don't get what they need even by mainstream standards -- and they don't even come close to my own recommendations, which is to get 40 to 50 grams per day of healthy, quality fiber.
That's the one problem I have with the new study -- there's no distinction between quality sources of fiber and junky ones like grains, including supposedly healthy whole grains that are anything but healthy.
Most people don't realize that whole wheat bread has almost the same effect on your blood sugar as white bread!
So avoid breads, pastas, and other grains -- even the "whole" ones -- and get your fiber from healthier sources such as beans, berries, and broccoli... apples and avocados... pears, papayas, and peas... and more.
