You Can Slow Aging to a Crawl… Here’s How

Dear Living Well Daily Reader,

I saw a photo yesterday of my girls at the zoo — and I couldn’t believe that it had only been 9 years since that picture was taken.

They were so small then… and now they’re practically grown women!

Watching your children grow up is one of the real joys of life.

But watching yourself get older? Not so much.

It’s no fun looking at yourself in the mirror and seeing those new grays… or those new wrinkles.

Fortunately, researchers have discovered a simple vitamin that can help slow aging to a crawl.

It’s cheap, widely available, and it could end up adding quality years to your life.

A recent study, published in Cell Reports by the Buck Institute shows just how important Vitamin D is to slowing the aging process.

Scientists who study aging think that one of the major reasons why we age is the accumulation of misshapen proteins.

While this sounds strange, the shape of a protein is important to how well it functions.

When you change the shape of proteins in the brain, they become the “beta-amyloid neurofibrillary tangles” seen in Alzheimer’s.

If you change the shape of the proteins in your eyes, they become the cloudy lenses in cataracts.

Scientists think if you could magically stop proteins from changing shape, then you might be able to live forever.

That is where vitamin D comes into the story, because it plays an important role in maintaining the proper shape of proteins.

That means that having enough vitamin D in your body keeps proteins from folding and changing.

The problem is that most of us don’t get enough vitamin D.

Let’s change that. Here’s my plan for increasing your vitamin D intake and slowing the aging process.

Dr. Scott’s Aging Delay Program:

  • Get 1,000-3,000 IU of Vitamin D every day. If it is winter, or you spend a lot of time inside, then you need to supplement every day.
  • Exercise. Getting enough exercise is vital to your anti-aging program – and if you exercise outside, you’ll get more sunlight to help your body produce its own vitamin D.
  • Eat a diet that is full of color and as many veggies as you can.
  • Take anti-aging nutrients. Alpha-lipoic acid, CoQ10, and astaxanthin are powerful antioxidants and anti-aging supplements.
  • Keep your blood sugar under control. One of the other reasons why we age so fast is because of out-of-control blood sugar. Use the mineral chromium and the herbal extract berberine to help keep your blood sugar under control.
  • Make sure you have enough nutrients to support your whole body. This usually means taking a multivitamin to make up for nutrient shortfalls.

Health and Happiness,

Scott Olson
