How to live longer: Experts say to avoid added sugar and take resveratrol and vitamin D.

Lifespan will always be determined by your simple daily habits, which will either help or inhibit your aging process. There is overwhelming evidence that behavioral habits affect one’s health and longevity. With this in mind, and according to experts, what are three daily habits you can start doing now to significantly reduce your risk of age-related illnesses?


Dr. David Sinclair and author of Lifespan: Why We Age and Why We Do Not Have Two advisors on taking 1,000 mg of Resveratrol, which is an antioxidant found in red wine and certain foods.

Resveratrol has been touted as a natural way to help slow down the aging process while fighting cancer, obesity, heart disease and diabetes.

Dr. Sinclair and colleagues discovered in 2003 that resveratrol could increase cell survival and slow aging in yeast (and later in mice) by activating a “long-lived” gene known as SIRT1.

Other health benefits of resveratrol include protection against high blood pressure, heart disease, obesity and improved insulin sensitivity.

Do not miss:

Dr. Sinclair adds the other benefits you can get by taking a daily Resveratrol, which include:

  • Promotes youthful gene expression similar to calorie-restricted diets
  • Supports healthy insulin response and mitochondrial function
  • Helps maintain already healthy glucose levels
  • Supports a healthy inflammatory response and helps inhibit oxidation.

Vitamin D supplementation

Although Dr. Sinclair has said that aiming to get most of his daily vitamins from his diets, he is taking a few vitamin supplements as part of his morning routine, including vitamin D3.

This vitamin is said to be able to prolong life as well as reduce the risk of various age-related diseases.

Studies have shown that vitamin D levels in the body are inversely related to the risk of death.

According to a large review study, low vitamin D levels have been linked to all causes, cardiovascular, cancer and infection-related mortality.

According to a number of studies, low levels of vitamin D and health problems such as cognitive decline, depression, osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease, hypertension, type 2 diabetes and cancer.

Preliminary research from a 20-year follow-up of more than 78,000 Austrian adults found that people with low levels of vitamin D in their blood were almost three times more likely to die during the study period than those with adequate levels.

The body creates vitamin D from direct sunlight on the skin when outdoors.

But between October and early March, we do not get enough vitamin D from sunlight.
