  1. The MISSING MINERAL that can stop aging!

    Aging in reverse?

    Might sound like a wild fantasy – literally impossible when it comes down to it.

    Well, friend, the impossible just became possible today... at least on a cellular level.

    The latest research reveals a way to slow one of the most important signs of aging deep inside your body – and to be clear, this isn’t just some crazy, out-there there “theory.”

    You see, this one cellular process – one that’s taking place right now, deep inside your body -- holds the power to:

    • SLOW aging
    • BLOCK disease
    • EXTEND your life

    And the “fix” is a whole lot easier than you’d ever believe as new research reveals how it all comes down to a single trace mineral.

    The SELENIUM secret to successful aging

    Telomeres are often compared to aglets.

    Those are the little caps that sit at each end of a shoelace, holding the threads together.

    In this case, those threads are your DNA and the aglets – your telomeres – are what’s keeping the whole package together.

    Each time your cells divide, the telomere cap shrinks just a touch. Eventually, there’s nothing left, and it all unwinds.

    And you don’t need to be a doctor to know what happens when your DNA unravels.

    Your LIFE unravels – and you’re left facing nearly every major deadly chronic disease: heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer’s and more.

    Since telomeres shrink with age, these are considered “aging” problems.

    However, not everyone shrinks at the same rate...

    Exposure to toxins and poor lifestyle choices – including obesity and being sedentary – can speed the shrink.

    But there’s a flipside to that

    Just as some things can SPEED the shrink, other things can SLOW it down.

    That’s where the latest science shows so much incredible promise...

    It nails down one simple nutrient… one you can get easily every day… that can preserve your all-important telomeres: selenium.

    Every 20 micrograms(mcg) of selenium you get from diet can increase the length of telomeres by 0.42 percent.

    That may not sound like much.

    But on a cellular level… over years… that could have a MAJOR impact on your aging.

    You can find selenium in Brazil nuts, certain shellfish, salmon, sardines and some seeds including sunflowers. Good multivitamins are also starting to include selenium.

    Brazil nuts are especially rich in selenium – 70 to 90 mcg each. One or two a day is all you need to get enough of this valuable mineral.

    Along with boosting your selenium via diet and a high-quality multivitamin with minerals, there are other steps you can take to slow telomere growth and block your disease risk.

    Pretty easy, too.

    Studies show these supplements can all slow telomere shrink:

    • Fish oil: Studies show omega-3s not only slow the shrink, but they can also help your telomeres GROW in some cases.
    • Vitamin D: Folks with blood levels over 50 nmol/L have the slowest shrink rate, according to another study.
    • Ashwagandha: Research has shown this herbal therapy can boost the enzyme that protects telomeres by an impressive 45 percent.

    In addition, avoid toxins with a diet of natural food -- and spend less time on the sofa and more on your feet.

    Of course, you can’t stop aging completely.

    But you certainly can show it who’s boss!
