How Much Does Lifestyle Impact How Long We Live?
2 Minute Read:
The oldest recorded human to date died at the age of 122 years of age. However, the average life expectancy in the United States is only 78.54 years. Is there a way to live beyond the average expectancy? And, can a healthy lifestyle be the answer?
The Harvard Gazette reported in a 2018 study that five healthy lifestyle habits helped increase life expectancy. These five habits increased life expectancy for women by 14 years and men by 12.
The five habits were:
- Eating a healthy diet that included many plants and low amounts of saturated fats
- Exercising (moderately-vigorously) for several hours a week
- Maintaining a healthy and stable body weight
- Not smoking
- Limiting alcohol intake to one drink per day for women and two drinks per day for men
At Sand Institute, we offer several treatments to help aging individuals get their vitality for life back. Firstly, we provide nutrition-focused diet plans that help individuals lose weight. Maintaining a healthy weight can help you reduce the risk of diseases and feel better overall.
Secondly, Sand Institute offers peptide treatments. These revolutionary treatments help individuals build muscle, balance hormones, lose weight, treat insomnia, and mores—all of which can help to live a longer, healthier life.
