They both live in what are called ‘Blue Zones’. Blue Zones are areas of the world where people are not just very long-lived – frequently to 100 – but where they also stay fit, mentally sharp and healthy.
We, in the West, are also living longer, but it’s how you live these years that really matters. Too many suffer in their last decade from degenerative diseases like diabetes, arthritis, heart disease, cancer and dementia.
COMBINING THE BEST OF ALL THE BLUE ZONES
All these other nutritional elements – which have also been subject to top-class published scientific research – should logically be combined to become a ‘super-boosted’ Mediterranean Diet.
Breakthrough research from the Leibniz Institute on Aging in 2017 also suggests that a super-boosted diet should include optimum (not just RDA) levels of B complex vitamins, which are vital to prevent incorrect activation of genes.
SUPER-BOOST BASED ON HEALTH DEFENCE BESTSELLER
by Dr Paul Clayton
The American Cancer Society, the British Heart Foundation and other health experts call for up to 10 portions of fruits and vegetables a day. And 2-3 portions of oily fish (or other source of Omega 3 essential fats) a week.
Because only these high intakes of vitamins, minerals and plant-derived nutrients seem to confer enough protection to help prevent premature illness.
We have created a one-page simple guide that ensures you can eat the most protective foods for long term health. It includes lifestyle advice on achievable activity targets and ways to improve mental well-being with mindfulness and relaxation.
It crystallises years of advice in recognised health newsletters from universities like Harvard, Tufts and Berkeley – as well as 35 years of research by Dr Paul Clayton.
The guide recognises that there is a role for a comprehensive daily health supplement to ‘fill in the gaps’ so that you can achieve optimum nutrition every day. But this needs to include the sort of plant nutrients found in the Blue Zones, not just vitamins and minerals.
To get all these nutrients day after day, from food alone, is a challenge - in terms of planning, cooking and even calories.
Here are 12 important plant micro-nutrients that research shows can make a real difference. Some of them even activate genes that promote health and others deactivate genes that threaten health. You can click on any one for more information.
You can download the one-page health plan based on Dr Clayton’s 35 years of research here.
We believe getting older does NOT have to mean getting ill, particularly if you take a comprehensive daily health supplement.
NutriShield, which contains all the vitamins, minerals and powerful plant micro-nutrients outlined above, designed by Dr Paul Clayton, is a unique supplement. Check it out here.
