Everyone’s always looking for the secrets to living a longer, better, healthier life.
Well, it turns out you likely already have one of them in your own home. You just need to know how to activate it.
New research reveals what some of the world’s healthiest people have in common. It’s one thing they all share that helps them outlast the rest of us.
But it’s not some rare gene passed down through generations that they have, and you don’t. And it isn’t the luck of being born and raised in these pockets of the planet where people routinely live to 100.
It’s something else entirely that you have (or can get) and can use yourself.
And today, I’m going to show you how.
Ancient fruit linked to longer life
For years, scientists have reported two things about the famously healthy Mediterranean diet…
- People who follow it aren’t just healthier. They live longer, too.
- Much of the life-extending benefit comes from resveratrol, the antioxidant found in red wine.
But the new study finds they may have been missing a major piece of the puzzle all along. Because it’s not just the diet. And it isn’t the resveratrol alone either.
Sure, both are plenty healthy. But lab experiments indicate there’s likely ANOTHER overlooked reason these folks are so healthy. It’s a fruit that appears in the Bible dozens of times.
I’m talking, of course, about the humble and delicious, OLIVE. Specifically, it’s the FAT found in both olives and olive oil.
And while that’s great news, because you can pick up a jar of olives or olive oil at your local grocery store, there’s a catch.
It’s not enough to eat olives or cook with olive oil. You have to unlock the power of that fat, putting it to work so your body can use it and reap all the life-extending benefits.
Add YEARS to your life with olives?
When you eat olives or olive oil, the fat gets stored in what the researchers call liquid droplets inside the cells. In that form, it’s not as useful to you as it could be.
Your body needs to break down those droplets to convert the fat into the form it can use to enhance your health and extend your life. And that requires another step.
You’ve got two choices, according to the study.
Exercise will break down that fat and put it to work. Or, if you prefer the sweat-free approach, the study finds you could try something else. A fast.
Fasting is a great habit. Some people try it once a season or once a month. Some even pull mini ones off two or three times a week using an intermittent fasting diet.
Those short periods of calorie restriction bust open the liquid droplets and convert the olive fat, giving you all those incredible benefits.
Keep in mind this was a lab test. So, of course, it will be great to see it confirmed in human trials one day soon.
But we ALREADY know olives and olive oil are great for your health. Not to mention delicious in your recipes. And reasonable, short-term fasting is one of the best ways to detox your body… making it a perfect combo for any lifestyle.
