Want to Life Longer? Try This.
Most people want to live a long life.
But what good is living longer if you’re riddled with disease… can barely get around…or in constant pain?
That’s why I always focus on ways to live longer AND healthier.
And now, a new study has come out showing one simple way to do BOTH.
Grandma always said that eating an apple away keeps the doctor away. She was mostly right.
Eating healthy foods like apples and other fruit—as well as a variety of vegetables— can help you prevent disease and help you live longer.
In a study published in the journal Nature Communications, researchers took data from three major cohorts involving over 56,000 people that they tracked for over 23 years.
To see if the compounds found in fruit and vegetables could protect your health and extend your life.
These compounds include a specific family of polyphenols (plant chemicals) called flavonoids that are present in fruit and vegetables, as well as dark chocolate, red wine, and tea.
Six specific flavonoids include flavonols, flavan-3-ols, flavones, flavanones, anthocyanins, and isoflavins.
Some you may have heard of, others maybe not. But you don’t need to remember their names… just what they can do for your health.
Because according to this study, the more you consume foods containing these compounds, the lower your risk of dying from heart disease, cancer, or from anything at all.
You don’t have to drown yourself in kale to achieve these benefits. According to the study, the people who saw the greatest benefits generally ate about 500 milligrams of flavonoids per day.
That’s about one cup of tea, one apple, one orange, ½ cup blueberries, and a ½ a cup of broccoli.
That’s something everyone can do… and everyone SHOULD be doing for a simple solution to a longer—and yes, healthier, life.
