The Secret to Aging Like a “Super Senior”

We all know a few of those so-called “super seniors.”

I hope you’re one of them.

I’m talking about the people who look 20 years younger than they are… they barely have a speck of gray hair, and they’re still running circles around the grandkids on the golf course.

Well, it turns out that aging like a “super senior” is a lot easier than we ever imagined.

Researcher have just discovered one thing that these folks all have in common.

And it could hold the secret to making you look and FEEL years younger.

A new study out of the Western University Lawson Health Research Institute found that there is a strong link between healthy aging and a healthy digestive tract.

The researchers looked at digestive tracts of people from age 3 to age 100. What they found was amazing.

When they looked at the gut bacteria of the healthiest elders (the “super seniors”), it was practically identical to people in their 30s.

What that means is healthy aging is dependent on the health of the bacteria in your gut.

The researchers called those healthy elders ‘ridiculously healthy,’ because of the almost complete lack of illness (they showed almost no signs of any disease).

That cements the link between your gut and your overall health.

But what can you do if your digestive health is not what it should be?

You can reset and restore your gut microbiota (and that can restore your health).

Dr. Scott’s Gut Health Program:

  • Probiotics are your easiest path to a healthy digestive system. I prefer a probiotic product that contains a fiber prebiotic along with good bacteria (probiotics).
  • Eat enough fiber to help with regular bowel movements, but to also help stimulate healthy bacterial growth. I always suggest that people take both water soluble and water insoluble fiber. One of my favorite fibers is ground flax seeds.
  • Throw away junk food, trans fats, processed, and chemical foods. All processed foods, trans fatty acids, artificial sweeteners, and alcohol harm the gut microbiome. Do what you can to limit these non-foods in your diet.
  • Exercise doesn’t seem like the first place you would turn to help your digestive tract, but it helps encourage a healthy microbiome.

Your gut health is more important than we ever realized and, now, it may be our key to a long and healthy life.
