Chronological and physiological age is not the same.

You can be younger than your actual years or you can be older. This depends a lot on your diet and lifestyle.

The referenced research was conducted to figure out the most important drivers for successful aging (Arai Y, et.al., 2015). This is important because you don’t want to just live for a long time, you want to stay healthy as you get older.

1554 individuals were included in the study, and 684 were 100-105 years old and 105-109 years old. There were also 536 who were 85-99 year old and some children of the 100-105 years old.

The researchers looked at multiple biomarkers and this is what they found.

Inflammation predicted all-cause mortality in the 85-99 years old and in the 105-109 years old.

Inflammation also predicted capability and cognition in 105-109 year olds better than chronologic age.

The inflammation score was also lower in the children of these individuals compared to age-matched controls.

if you want to function well  as you get older, Inflammation is the most important factor to keep low. 

It is important to keep in mind that oxidative stress is also involved in inflammation.

Oxidative stress due to oxidant/antioxidant imbalance, and also due to environmental oxidants is an important component during inflammation and respiratory diseases, asthma being one of those conditions (Biswas SK, Rahman I, 2009).

This is what you can do to keep inflammation low.  Implement a high nutrient, low glycemic index, plant based diet.

Take a well absorbed form of  Curcumin and Boron. Both of these compounds have shown to reduce inflammation.

Take S-Acetyl Glutathione which is a form of Glutathione shown to get into the cells. Glutathione is the body’s most effective protection against free radical damage. It also regulates the immune function.
