STOP This Aging Accelerator in Its Tracks
Everybody gets older at the same rate… but that doesn’t mean we age at the same rate.
If you’ve ever said that someone “looks good for their age,” then you know what I’m talking about. They have younger-looking skin, more energy, denser muscles, and an overall more youthful vitality.
Let’s be honest… we ALL want to be that person, right?
Well, researchers have recently identified a lifestyle habit that can put your biological age on one of those European high-speed bullet trains.
The good news is that you can take steps to hop off that train (safely, of course), and literally turn back the hands of your biological clock.
You can’t avoid stress completely.
But to slow down your biological age—or even reverse it—you’ll need to reduce your stress levels as much as possible.
While your chronological age represents the number of years you’ve been alive, your biological age indicates how old your cells and tissues are based on physiological evidence.
Biological age is important because it’s a better predictor of disease and earlier death.
And there’s not much that ages you biologically more than stress.
This doesn’t simply mean being “stressed out.” Sure, that applies too. But in reality, any illness, surgery, or harmful environmental exposure can put your body under stress.
Researchers looked at the biological age of people experiencing a stressful, traumatic situation—such as emergency surgery, postpartum recovery, or recovery from COVID-19.
While stress temporarily increased their biological age, they found that this aging marker was restored to normal once the situation resolved.
Overall, biological age was sped up by things like disease, drug treatment, lifestyle changes, and environmental exposures.
This makes sense since stress causes very real physical changes in your body. It can increase your heart rate, blood pressure, pain response, and breathing rate.
But this study showed something even more important—that your biological age is fluid, fluctuating… and reversible.
The best things I do to reduce the overall effects of stress on my body include being active, practicing gratefulness, regularly deep breathing, and overall taking care of my body.
P.S. Researchers recently identified a simple, truly revolutionary way to improve how your body responds to stress. CLICK HERE for the secret.

The American Heart Association recommends 150 minutes of weekly exercise to boost heart health. But let’s face it.

Scientists have been searching in vain for a CURE for Alzheimer’s disease. While some drugs may help lessen symptoms in the short term, scientists aren’t even close to a cure. But maybe that’s because they’ve been looking in the wrong place. Instead of focusing on what’s going on in the brains of dementia patients, maybe...
Just because something is common, it DOESN’T make it safe. And neither does “being natural” mean it’s okay for everyone. This is true of anything—including supplements.

If you want to live SIGNIFICANTLY longer, don’t get type 2 diabetes. After all, this diagnosis sends your risk of heart attack, stroke, kidney problems, and even cancer soaring.

You’ve likely given some thought to the size of your muscles over the years or your (growing) waistline. But have you ever considered the size of your brain? You SHOULD.

Like the lung cancer I wrote just a few days ago, breast cancer’s survival rate is highest when it’s caught EARLY. But this doesn’t just mean getting cancer screenings. It also means regularly looking for WARNING SIGNS at home. Most women know that discovering a lump in their breast warrants a trip to their doctor....

Do you know the leading cause of cancer deaths worldwide? Most people guess breast or colon cancer… But neither is correct. It’s lung cancer. Even more surprising for most folks is you DON’T have to have been a smoker to be a lung cancer victim. We ALL could be at risk. So, whether you smoke...
