What Super foods or general advice do you know of for helping extend life and fighting disease?

- I'm a big fan of Brocoli, Wheat Grass, Green Cabbage, Brussels Sprouts, Deep Leafy Greens Fresh tomato sauce (Italian).
- I dislike Kale but I force myself to eat it in salads because it's supposed to be good for you.
- I also eat a lot of vegetarian (only) Sushi with Avacado, Cucumber, Seaweed.
- I try to get some fruit in there like Apples, Peaches, Blueberries but I'm really bad with this.

There are no magical foods to extend life. Eating a balanced moderate diet and most importantly exercise, which I need more of, are the keys. I'll see if I can find it but 60 Minutes did a story years ago about the secret to long life and the key was exercise.

They profiled a retirement home in California that tested patients in their 60s for cognitive abilities, exercise levels, and diets. Thirty years later they repeated those tests on those that were still alive. Their overall conclusion was 45 minutes of moderate exercise per day was the biggest influence on overall health.

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/living-to-90-and-beyond-60-minutes/

I think what you are doing is better than most so keep it up but I wouldn't spend too much time finding that magic elixir. For example grapes have a lot of antioxidants, no need for expensive pomegranate. Onions have a lot as well.

The closer you get to nature, the healthier you'll be. Soda, processed foods, candy and other junk foods aren't found in nature, but veggies, fruits, water, grains are. Eat natural things, exercise, do meditation & yoga, and you'll for sure be healthy physically and mentally -- barring any genetic predisposition to certain diseases.

I buy quite a bit of Spirolina from Amazon. This is the brand I use. I find ways to mix it into things.

https://www.amazon.com/Non-GMO-Spirulina...words=spirulina

It's a blue-green algae that is full of antioxidants, vitamins, micro-nutrients and packed full of protein.

I don't eat it much, my 12 year old son is a National level athelte, and we were turned onto this by his trainers.

Agreed. I eat as clean as possible and avoid processed where possible. (I work on the road so it can be tough at times). I do have a junk binge here/there and I always feel terrible afterward but I think it's good in a way to remind you how we are affected by what we eat.

Look into a compound called Nicotinamide Riboside (NR). Sold under brand name Niagen. Cousin to the B vitamin Niacin, but totally different. Increases levels of NAD+ in your body. NAD+ rejuvenates the mitochondria of every single cell you have. Mitochondria are the power plants in each cell, processing/making ATP for energy. Good idea to take an anti-oxidant with it, since more mitochondrial activity = more potential oxidative stress on cells.

Interesting... I was taking Niacin for a while but had to stop because it was aggravating the Rosacear war I currently have going on, on my face.

I always hear a lot of noise about calorie restricted diets extending lifespans, but I don't know if there is anything real to it or it's just another pseudoscientific fad. Seems like it's a similar crowd to the anti-vaccination movement that wants to bring us back to the good old days of polio, smallpox, and the Black Death.

It helped me reverse my Type-II diabetic sugars that were really high down to manageable levels without medication. I'm fighting hard to keep off the medications going to the pool and eating right etc. and so far it's working. I also found that a diet higher in plants and less in meat (not cutting out altogether) and keeping as low carb as possible had helped immensely along with the caloric restriction.

My Doctor was very impressed.

There is no such thing as a superfood, just whatever the latest fashion wants you to believe, particularly if there is money to be made.

Steer clear of processed foods. Mostly they have far too much salt and/or sugar added as flavor enhancers. Eat a balanced diet including fat meat, fresh fruit and vegetables, eggs, cheese, dairy products, treat yourself to occasional indulgences like ice cream, alcohol, chocolate or whatever you fancy. But don't overdo any of these.
Coupled with sensible exercise you are giving yourself a good chance for a long healthy life. But there are no guarantees though!.
