9 Tips to Cheat Father Time

1.  Anti-inflammatory diet – 10 servings of vegetables and fruit per day, especially lots of vividly coloured foods.  Avoid processed grains and sugar.  Increase omega 3 fatty acids from fish and raw nuts and seeds.  Decrease caloric intake.
2.  Water – consume at least 8 glasses per day, add some fresh lemon or lime juice to each glass.
3.  Smoking – quit!
4.  Exercise – be physically active for at least 6 hours per week including a combination of endurance, strength, flexibility and agility training.
5.  Body Weight and Composition – Maintain a healthy BMI and body fat less than 18% for men and 22% for women.
6.  Social Connection – spending time with family, friend and other social supports reduces stress, increases our feelings of connectedness and happiness.
7.  Relaxation techniques – practice one or more of these daily: tai chi, yoga, breathing exercises, meditation, massage therapy
8.  Alcohol – a small glass of high resveratrol red wine such as merlot, cabernet or pinot noir once per day or less may increase lifespan, too much will have negative health effects
9.  Vitamins and minerals – Animal models have shown that CoQ10, R-lipoic acid, acetyl l-carnitine, phosphatidyl serine, N-acetyl cysteine, EGCG, trans-resveratrol, grape seed extract, polyphenols, vitamin C, vitamin D, B vitamins, selenium, zinc, lycopene, lutein, vitamin K2 MK-7, gamma and delta tocopherols and tocotrienols and omega 3 fatty acids increase lifespan and cognitive function in rats.  At this point there has been some negative research on vitamin E so we no longer recommend it on it’s own as d- or dl-tocopherol.  Most men should avoid iron supplements.
