"Slow Motion" Aging Secret REVEALED

There’s a tribe in a remote part of Bolivia that technically shouldn’t exist.

They’re living with chronically high inflammation levels, including C-reactive protein numbers (a measure of inflammation), that are practically off the charts.

By U.S. medical standards, they should all be dropping dead of heart attacks. Instead, modern disease is virtually unknown to these people. There’s essentially no diabetes… heart disease… heart attack… or stroke.

Now, a breakthrough report has revealed one major reason for this disease-defying feat….

These Bolivian’s are literally aging MORE SLOWLY than the rest of us.

Scientists are trying to crack the secret of Bolivia’s Tsimane indigenous people. But as far as I’m concerned, the answer is already hiding in plain sight.

Now to be clear, their overall life expectancy isn’t great. Because, despite their impressive ability to dodge the diseases of aging that plague the rest of us, it still tops out in the mid-50s.

But the folks who make it out of childhood unscathed have a life expectancy in the 70s—not too far from our own. And in the most important ways these 70-something super-agers are often MUCH healthier than Americans decades younger.

For example, as we get older our brains tend to shrink. And it occurs even faster in folks with higher levels of damaging inflammation.

But not for the Tsimane.

The new study finds their brains shrink at a rate that’s about 70 percent slower. And that’s DESPITE those sky-high inflammation levels I mentioned earlier!

Another report found that the typical 80-year-old Tsimane villager has the vascular health of a 50-something American. And a landmark 2017 study in the Lancet found these tribe members have the lowest rate of coronary atherosclerosis ON THE PLANET.

So, they’re younger in the brain and blood vessels… and quite literally YOUNG at heart. And the Tsimane have managed to achieve this aging miracle despite living in a remote rainforest with virtually no access to medical care. (Heck, they don’t even have WiFi!)

Scientists visit the age-defying tribe regularly to run tests. They’re hoping to spot what’s so special about these people so they can share their anti-aging secrets with the rest of us. But I’ve got a pretty good idea where to start.

TRIBAL SECRET #1: Be active.

There’s no Planet Fitness in the Bolivian rainforest. There are no Pelotons… no personal trainers… no yoga mats… and no spinning classes.

But the Tsimane people are naturally active. As hunter/farmer/foragers, the villagers remain active throughout each day.

Now you don’t need to hunt or farm or forage to take advantage of this aging secret, of course. But you DO need to avoid the siren call of the sofa. Instead, stay on your feet and move more throughout the day.

TRIBAL SECRET #2: No packaged foods.

None of these villagers are shopping in supermarkets. And they’re not getting Amazon deliveries, despite living in the ACTUAL Amazon. They either grow their own food… find it… or kill it.

You don’t have to go to quite that extreme. But you CAN create your own version of an anti-aging diet by eliminating ultraprocessed foods and all the toxins that go with them.

TRIBAL SECRET #3: Dump unneeded meds.

You can’t just toss all your meds in the trash, of course. Sometimes a drug is the right choice for a medical issue you’re battling.

But the Tsimane aren’t swallowing statins, popping blood pressure meds, or filling prescriptions for antidepressants, benzodiazepines, and sleeping pills. Because they don’t need to.

So, go ahead and set up an appointment with your doc to review your current prescriptions. He can help you decide what meds you really need and those you don’t.
