Let’s talk lifespan
The three countries with the longest lifespans are Switzerland, Japan, and Italy. It makes perfect sense, because these cultures eat some of the healthiest diets in the world…including many of the foods that actually help you live longer.
With that in mind, I’d like to share the Top 4 Foods proven to help increase your lifespan…
All nuts have amazing properties: walnuts, almonds, pistachios…even peanuts. Choose mixed, unsalted nuts for a real boost to your health, and eat just a handful everyday (10-15 depending).
Salmon is considered by many as the “healthiest food in the world.” Eating salmon 2-3 times per week has a huge number of health benefits, including:
- reducing inflammation in your heart
- improving your bone strength
- helping to prevent the decay of vision
Salmon is best known for its super-high content of the Omega-3 fatty acids DHA & EPA. Both of these are essential for enhanced brain function.
But the real reason salmon is on this list has to do with the ant- aging effects! What!?
3) Green Tea
Japan is ranked 2nd in the world for longest lifespan. The reason may have less to do with what they eat, and more to do with what they drink: plenty of green tea everyday.
Green tea is rich in polyphenols, a type of powerful antioxidant which fights free radicals in your cells. These compounds boost your metabolism, helping you burn calories from food. Polyphenols also help reduce the kind of inflammation seen in coronary heart disease. Why do you think KKW asks for green tea!?
For best results, brew green tea fresh from loose leaves - this can sometimes be cumbersome.
Blueberries are often referred to as a “superfood” due to their high levels of antioxidants and polyphenols. Several studies have linked blueberries to improved memory and reducing age-related damage to brain cells.
Blueberry flavonoids also help improve your metabolism…reducing the risk of obesity and diabetes, two of the nation’s biggest killers.
Keeping your weight in check is one of the best ways to increase your life expectancy.

Red Wine- yeah yeah
Give these a try and you may live a longer, healthier life!
