How to “Flip On” Your Anti-Aging Switch
The science is clear: The best way to live longer is to eat less.
Even cutting out 300 calories a day has been tied to remarkable health benefits.
But who wants to make that kind of sacrifice?
I know I don’t want to… and you shouldn’t have to.
Now, you don’t.
A recent study has shown that there’s a way to get all the benefits of eating less… without cutting out a single calorie.
Plus, it “flips on” your anti-aging switch.
Before I tell you about this remarkably simple solution, let me tell you why calorie restriction has such a dramatic impact on healthy aging.
In one study, researchers found cutting calorie intake by just 15% for two years slowed the aging process, while also protecting against age-related disease.
(For perspective, in a typical 2,000 calorie diet, cutting out 15% represents just 300 calories!)
I won’t get into all of the science behind calorie restriction. Just know that the primary way it works is by reducing oxidative stress – which is linked to everything from Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease, to cancer and diabetes – and slowing your metabolism.
Since the byproducts of metabolism are known to speed aging and disease processes, slowing metabolism makes sense as a powerful way to help prevent chronic disease.
It also boosts levels of a key anti-aging molecule in the body called NAD+.
NAD+ is critical for supplying your body with the energy it needs to run at peak capacity. It also BLOCKS genes that accelerate aging.
It’s as if NAD+ “flips on” you anti-aging switch!
Unfortunately, your levels of this miracle molecule decline with age. And calorie restriction is one of the few documented ways of boosting NAD+.
Those are just a FEW of the reasons you’d want to follow calorie restriction as a way of life.
But I’ve got GREAT news for you today.
You can get all of the benefits of calorie restriction without actually restricting any calories!
All it requires is supplementing with a form of vitamin B3 called nicotinamide riboside.
A study published in the journal Nature found that supplementing with nicotinamide riboside mimics the anti-aging effects of calorie restriction – and provides all of the same health benefits.
In fact, this study showed that supplementation with nicotinamide riboside boosted NAD+ by 60%!
It also lowered systolic blood pressure by 10 points, which translates to a 25% reduced risk of heart attack.
Supplementing with nicotinamide riboside is by far the easiest way to take advantage of the anti-aging, energy-boosting, disease-fighting benefits of calorie restriction.
Nicotinamide riboside is available at supplement stores of online on Amazon.com.
To a brighter day,
