The exponentially popular dietary trend of time-restricted eating, also referred to as intermittent fasting (IF), is viewed as much more than a weight loss intervention; IF has surged in popularity over recent years due to its potential health, anti-aging and longevity, and overall well-being benefits.
Evidence-based health benefits of fasting diets include improved cellular repair, gene expression, and metabolic rate; reduced insulin resistance, oxidative stress, inflammatory markers, and blood glucose levels. Some studies have even suggested that IF may boost fertility.
However, emerging evidence suggests that the risks associated with this type of nutritional pattern may greatly outweigh the benefits in specific populations, particularly those attempting to conceive.

Did you know brain health is one of the strongest indicators of longevity? And that of all the factors affecting brain function, nutrition may have an even more significant impact than most?
What we eat can affect memory, mood, ability to think clearly, and how long the brain operates at optimal levels. Healthy brain aging is possible even in the face of genetic and environmental risk factors. Mental vitality may be maintained or restored through a nutritious diet, physical activity, and stress management practices.
Below are six powerhouse nutrients for healthy brain function and longevity – each vital in maintaining healthy neural function and protecting from age-related decline.

Plant-based diets have long been the focal point of longevity research as they have proven to stave off chronic disease, improve biological markers of aging, and aid in weight management, among many other benefits. Current dietary interventions primarily encourage the consumption of plant-based foods and the elimination of processed ingredients. However, emerging research suggests that it is not only the type of food consumed but also the timing of meals that can profoundly affect life- and healthspan. A new study published in the journal Science reveals the promising potential of strategic meal timing to promote anti-aging effects.
