If you are looking for powerful anti-aging secrets, looking for the fountain of youth may be a little far fetched but as the National Geographic have revealed after an extensive 7 year study, there are places know as the “Blue Zones” or hot zones where being a centenarian is not at all rare.
So what makes the body tick?
What does the heart do?
It pumps blood through your body.
What does the blood travel through?
Therefore, keeping your arteries in optimum condition is crucial if you want to live a much longer and healthier life. So, how do we keep our arteries clean and smooth so to as optimize the hearts engine?
Well, there are a number of ways. Exercise obviously attributes to healthy clean arteries and a diet high in Omega 3 acids such as sardines is also effective. What the national Geographic discovered on the island of Sardinia which is home to the worlds largest male centenarian population is that there red wine contains three times the level of resveratrol a normal bottle of wine from your local store contains.
Why is this important?
Because Resveratrol, a fungi found in the grape skin which grows naturally to help fight bacteria is also discovered to be a natural artery scrubber.
You may get some resveratrol from your locally bought bottle of wine, but the chances are it has been farmed using pesticides which stop the grape from producing resveratrol. Therefore don’t expect that drinking one or two glasses of wine has the same effect as it does in Sardinia.
One way round this though is by taking resveratrol in a juice or capsule form. Each bottle is the equivalent to 1000 bottles of Sardinian red wine so the concentration is obviously high! This the National Geographic claim is the anti aging secret to the Sardinians longevity and accompanied with a healthy out door lifestyle as well as a strong family bond is one of the ways to beat the aging process.
