Dear ian,Omega-3s may determine how long you’ll live – and it’s not just because they’re good for your heart.
Omega-3s may now have a profound effect on anti-aging by slowing down the shortening of telomeres.
What are telomeres? They’re protective tips that cap the ends of your DNA. Each time your cells divide, your telomeres get shorter. When your telomeres run down, cell division stops, and your life ends.
While this may sound like a clip from a science fiction movie, it’s real. And it’s about to change the world of medicine. Everything you’ve been told about aging is about to be transformed by this new science.
You may not have heard about this new breakthrough yet. That doesn’t surprise me.
Organized forces in the mainstream media and established medical community don’t want you to know about this. Even though the Nobel Prize was awarded last year for telomere research, the importance of this life-changing discovery has been ignored.In fact, they say anti-aging is impossible.But the truth is it’s now possible to slow down the shortening of your telomeres. I just read about it in a study in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), which confirmed the connection with Omega-3s.1
Just because you may not be hearing about this on the evening news, don’t let that stop you from taking advantage of this important scientific breakthrough.You already know the many benefits of Omega-3s. Now it’s possible for you to add years to your life, simply by doing something you already believe in. It doesn’t get much better than that.Here are three steps you can take to bulk-up on Omega-3s right now:
Step 1: Eat fresh fish three or four times a week. I recommend coldwater, high-fat variety fish like:
