Top 6 Strategies for a Longer, Healthier Life

3 minutes to read

For a long time, most experts agreed, one’s lifespan was a roll of the dice. If your parents lived many years, likely, you would too. But as more researchers have investigated longevity, that thinking has changed. It turns out genetics play a much smaller role in determining how long we live. And healthy lifestyle and your personal choices can significantly enhance your life span.

According to an in-depth study conducted by the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, tracking 124,000 people over 34 years, the following six strategies could extend your life by as many as 14 years for women and 12 years for men. (1)

1. Eat A Healthy Diet

There are two parts to a healthy diet: the dos and don’ts.

Do eat primarily vegetables, nuts, healthy fats, whole grains, and fruit. Do get the recommended amount of omega-3 fatty acids every day.

Don’t consume (or at least limit) processed and red meat, sugar-sweetened treats and drinks, trans fat, and excessive amounts of salt.

2. Drink Alcohol In Moderation

Surprisingly, you may still drink alcohol a live a long life, but not too much.

One study that followed participants for 20 years found that moderate drinkers lived longer than abstainers and heavy drinkers.

Due to body fat ratios, women are more affected by alcohol than men. Women should limit their alcohol intake to less than one drink a day.

Guys may indulge in up to two drinks a day. And no, that does not mean you can abstain all week and go overboard on Saturday night. Any excessive drinking in a short period is a bad idea for your health.

3. Maintain Healthy Body Weight

Maintaining a healthy body weight means keeping your body mass index between 18.5 and 24.9. When your BMI is in a healthy range, you’re less likely to develop heart disease, diabetes, certain cancers, gallstones, osteoarthritis, and breathing issues.

4. Exercise Every Day

Physical activity at every age is linked to living longer. And higher fitness levels correspond to higher rates of survival. Basically, the more you move, the longer you live. Strive for 30 minutes of some form of exercise every day to help maintain high fitness levels. 

5. Never Smoke Or Vape

Smoking and vaping destroy your lungs and damages your heart, kidneys, and mouth -enough said. Quit the habit; studies show you will improve your life expectancy.

The most common causes of death are cardiovascular disease and cancer. The people in the Harvard study referenced above were 65% less likely to die from cancer and 82% less likely to die from heart disease. (1) Making changes to your lifestyle can make a massive impact on your health.

6. Take Two Anti-Aging Supplements that Make a Difference

Are you motivated to live a longer, healthier life? If so, there are two supplements with the anti-aging ability you should consider including in your daily routine: Turmeric and Krill Oil.


For years people have been taking turmeric supplements to help reduce chronic inflammation for improve joint health and mobility. Curcumin, the bioactive compound in turmeric, has significant anti-aging, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory properties.

And there is ample evidence that curcumin helps maintain brain, heart, and lung function and protects against age-related diseases. Studies on insects and mice show that curcumin increased the subject’s lifespans. (2-5)

Look for a turmeric supplement with a significant amount of curcumin like Stonehenge Health’s Dynamic Turmeric. It’s a powerful blend of 1,650 milligrams of organic turmeric curcumin complex with 300 milligrams of organic ginger root extract.

Dynamic Turmeric contains one of the highest levels of curcumin you’ll find in one daily dose. Fifteen milligrams of BioPerine improves bioavailability, ensuring your body gets turmeric’s maximum benefits.

Krill Oil

Omega-3’s two most bioactive fatty acids, DHA & EPA, play an essential role in joint, eye, cardiovascular, and brain health and are critical for healthy aging. (6)

Fatty fish like salmon and sardines, chia seeds, flaxseeds, leafy greens, and walnuts are excellent sources. However, few of us get enough omega-3 from our diets to replenish our daily needs, especially as we age.

Taking Dynamic Krill Oil can help ensure you get the necessary daily amounts of DHA & EPA your body needs to thrive. 

If you’re taking fish oil for your omega-3 needs, consider this, Dynamic Krill Oil comes from the Southern Ocean, the most pristine water in the world. It’s less likely to contain toxins like mercury and other heavy metals, and it’s more environmentally sustainable.

And while both krill and fish oils contain omega-3 essential fatty acids EPA and DHA, krill oil contains astaxanthin, a carotenoid with antioxidant ability significantly more potent than vitamins C and E. (7)
