Although death is a certainty for all of us, there is no need to hurry towards it. Everyone desires a long and happy life, but the question is, are our unhealthy lifestyle habits unknowingly shortening our lifespans?
In the United States, the average life expectancy for a person born today is around 79 years. This is a significant increase from a century ago when it was only 54 years. Nowadays, if we reach 65 years old, there is a high probability that we will live until 85. Moreover, if we reach 85, there is a good chance we will make it to 92. This trend of increased lifespan is not limited to the US; it is happening worldwide, which is a promising development.
Here’s the bonus … older people are living healthier. So the saying is true 50 is the new 30, 70 is the new 50, and beyond! Older people tend to be healthier nowadays, too.
So let’s break down the most important things we SHOULD be doing to live longer:
FAST TO LIVE
Today, we will focus on the benefits of fasting for overall health. In order to live a long and healthy life, it is important to support and occasionally reset the body’s natural detox functions. The body is highly effective at detoxing through processes such as perspiration, respiration, urination, and defecation. However, with the increased toxicity of our environment and food and rising stress levels, it is important to support the body through fasting.
Fasting can greatly improve the body’s health by allowing it to cleanse itself without constantly taxing the gut. It is an effective tool for promoting well-being.
Our body has two fuel sources — sugar and fat. The sugar-burner system is activated as the primary fuel source when we eat. However, the fat-burning system is triggered after approximately eight hours of fasting. This system can be activated by fasting and offers numerous benefits including:
- Increased Ketones: When our blood sugar levels drop, our liver produces ketones, which can be beneficial for our bodies and support improved memory function, burning fat/inflammation, dissolving tumors and more.
- Increased Mitochondrial Stress Resistance: Fasting can repair the mitochondria and prevent chronic fatigue, hearing and vision impairments, as well as issues with our livers and gastrointestinal systems.
- Increased Antioxidant Defenses: Research has shown that fasting can boost the body’s antioxidant defenses, which in turn aids in providing anti-tumour, anti-inflammatory, and anti-ageing effects.
- Increased Autophagy: Autophagy is a natural process that helps cells to detox, repair, and remove diseased cells. Interestingly, the absence of food actually strengthens our cells instead of weakening them.
- Increased DNA Repair: Fasting has been found to enhance the ability of stem cells to repair DNA, while reducing their rate of apoptosis.
- Decreased Glycogen: The human body stores excess sugar as glycogen. By fasting, the body can lower glycogen levels in the liver, which allows it to start burning fat.
- Decreased Insulin: Fasting triggers the elimination of excess insulin in our bodies, which helps prevent chronic diseases like Diabetes.
Fasting is beneficial practice for the body since it initiates the healing process. Studies have even suggested that fasting may lower the risk of developing cancer and other chronic illnesses.

BALANCE YOUR HORMONES
This is serious, brothers and sisters! When there is an excess or deficiency of important hormones in our bloodstreams, it is referred to as a hormonal imbalance. While occasional irregularities may not be harmful, a significant imbalance can have serious health consequences. Some examples include:
- Cardiovascular disease
- Certain factors can elevate the chances of developing breast and other cancers
- Urinary tract infections
- Breast Cancer
- Erectile dysfunction
- Sudden, unexplained weight loss
- Excessive sweating
- Difficulty sleeping and headaches
- Changes in heat and cold sensitivity
- Dry skin or skin rashes
- Changes in heart rate and blood pressure
- Irritability, anxiety, depression
- Increased thirst and frequent urination
- Brittle or weak bones
- Unexplained, prolonged fatigue
- Certain factors can elevate the chances of developing prostate cancers
SUPPLEMENT FOR LONGEVITY
We’ve all heard the legend of the fountain of youth—a mythical spring that if one bathes in it or drinks from it, grants long life and youthful vitality. Unfortunately, that indeed is just a child’s tale.
However, God did bless us with some of the best home-grown nutrients that can give us a glimpse of what that fountain of youth speaks of. Unfortunately, for many reasons: pollution, chronic illness and genetics, it is nearly impossible to get all of the nutrients we need from food alone. This is where the use of supplements becomes crucial.
As we age, it’s important to include supplements in our daily routine that can help combat chronic inflammation and support overall health. It’s essential to promote a healthy inflammatory response similar to when we were younger. Our supplement MASS will help the body:
- Control levels of inflammation and eliminate fibroids, tumors, masses, cysts and growths
- Restrict the overgrowth of scar tissue to prevent adhesions after any surgery
- Target inflammatory proteins
- Support a healthy immune system
- Address oxidative stress
Feeling confident about our bodies is crucial when striving for optimal health and longevity. Our D3 supplement not only effectively regulates vitamin D levels, but also effectively addresses common daily concerns like:
- Hair Loss
- Low Energy
- Rapid / Irregular Heartbeat
- PMS/Reproductive Health Issues like Fibroids
- Shortness of breath
- Trouble Focusing
- Pale Skin
- Brittle Nails & Hair
- Leg Cramps
Every “body” is different but there are specific vital factors necessary for maintaining optimal health and wellness. Our latest kit, PREVENTION Daily Kit addresses the above critical health concerns and implements preventative measures that should be a top priority. More specifically, it targets three preventable health issues by attacking them at their root causes with our MASS, BALANCE (for women) and STRENGTH (for men) & D3 supplement bundle.
