Extend Your Lifespan By 10%

Extend Your Lifespan By 10% It's been said that an apple a day keeps the doctor away. That assumption wasn't tested by research published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry. But the study does suggest that regular consumption of apples can extend your lifespan. It worked for fruit flies! The insects were fed a variety of apple polyphenols, a potent antioxidant known for neutralizing free radicals. Not only did these compounds extend fruit fly lifespan by 10%, they helped older flies have an easier time working, climbing and staying mobile.

True Strength Moment: How can you tell if a food has antioxidant polyphenols? Their bright colors are a good indication. Tomatoes, blueberries and apples all fit the description and are all great sources of natural antioxidant protection. Since the stress of exercise can release free radicals into your system, make sure you get a healthy dose of fruits and vegetables to keep them in check. A high-potency multivitamin can help you out in much the same way.
