I believe that instead of focusing on increasing lifespan - we should be increasing our “healthspan” - the number of years during which we feel mentally and physically healthy! Did you know that although most Americans live longer now than they did 100 years ago, the majority of us spend the last 15-20 years of our lives chronically ill and in discomfort. It does not have to be that way!

Start eating the foods listed above today and it will make a difference in how you age. It's never too late to start and the health effects from these foods will begin to show within weeks!

Until next time,
