It’s true, you can’t stop the clock. But you just might be able to slow it down to a crawl. Because new research reveals how walking (the RIGHT way) can hit the “slow-motion” button on aging.
This surprisingly simple step could help…
- PROTECT your cells
- STOP damage inside your body
- PREVENT the onset of chronic disease
- ADD years to your life
And unlike some antiaging strategies you may have heard of before, you don’t need to buy a book to learn this approach. There are no complicated plans to study. And there’s nothing to buy.
In fact, you already have everything you need to get started with this walking solution. And as you’ll see in a moment, you’ll literally be able to put this plan into motion the moment you’re done reading this letter.
Stay a step ahead of aging
I’ll get back to that walking trick in a moment. But first, let’s take a closer look at the aging process.
Not many people have heard of the term “replicative senescence.” I’ll admit it sounds like a cloning scheme straight out of a sci-fi flick. And it’s a mouthful. So let’s call it RS for short.
RS is actually something that happens inside your body. In many ways, it’s at the heart of aging on the deepest possible level.
It’s linked to the little caps on the ends of each strand of DNA called telomeres. Every time a cell divides, the telomeres get just a tiny bit shorter until they reach a point when they can no longer divide.
That’s “replicative senescence.”
When this happens to enough cells, you start to suffer from all those things we typically blame on aging, from chronic disease to death itself. But the new study shows how to put the freeze on that process, or at least slow it down.
And, incredibly, all it takes is swift walking.
The idea is to keep those telomeres from shrinking too quickly. We want to delay that moment of RS.
If you can do that, you’ve delayed aging. And that’s what walking appears to do, according to a new study of more than 400,000 British adults.
How WALKING extends lives
But doing any old form of walking just won’t cut it in this case. It must be a brisk one to work.
You’ll want to move like something’s following you because it is. Aging… or maybe even the Grim Reaper himself… is nipping at your heels.
The researchers say as little as 10 minutes a day of brisk walking… or an hour and 10 minutes per week… can slow the shrink of your telomeres. And that will ward off the onset of RS.
And the benefits add up FAST. By midlife, someone with a regular brisk walking habit is up to 16 years “younger,” biologically speaking, than if they hadn’t been hoofing it for those years.
As you continue, the antiaging benefits keep adding up.
By the time you’re a senior, thanks to your walking, you not only may have scored some extra time here on this Earth but quality time too. Because those extra years are far more likely to be spent in good health instead of battling the diseases of aging.
I know this might all sound a bit unlikely. You’re probably wondering, “How could mere walking do ALL that?” And I’ll admit it does sound like it’s too good to be true.
But it turns out it’s right in line with earlier walking research. Other studies have found the habit can help cut the risk of nearly every major chronic disease and add up to 20 years to your life.
