In this video, let’s talk about nutrients and your lifespan. How much of an influence do nutrients have on how long you live?

You are as strong as your weakest link. There are various weaknesses within our bodies that fail and then shorten our lifespan.

Your body is constantly trying to repair DNA damage. When your body fails to repair the DNA damage, or the free radical damage is too strong, you start to age, and your body begins to breakdown.

One study reports that DNA damage from micronutrient deficiencies may cause cancer.

Why are nutrients important? Because nutrients are involved in the repair action, which helps keep the DNA stable. If you’re deficient in a nutrient at a certain level, you’re going to be susceptible to a breakdown within the system.

The triage theory:
If you have somewhat of a deficiency, your body is going to ration out nutrients, and your genes and enzymes that are involved in longevity and repair will suffer.

Unfortunately, there are no real symptoms of having a shorter lifespan. That’s why I really want you to understand that you need to make sure you have all of the nutrients in your diet to extend your life.

1. Shellfish (clam, oyster, mussel, crab, lobster, shrimp)
2. Fish (esp. fatty fish like wild caught salmon)
3. Eggs (pasture-raised organic)
4. Dark leavy green vegetables (asparagus is very high in folate)
5. Beef liver and organ meats (organic and grass fed): US Wellness Meats are high quality and convenient.
6. Olives and olive oil
7. Pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds
8. Grass-fed organic cheese
9. Fermented vegetables
