Eat These Six Foods To Live Long Like Methuselah




Hey! Want to live a long, fruitful life? What you put on your plate could make a major difference.

In addition to following an overall healthy eating pattern, moving your body regularly, and incorporating other healthy lifestyle habits, these six foods could improve your health and increase longevity.

1. Green Tea

What’s in your mug could be just as important as what’s on your plate. Green tea is known for its potential to reduce cancer risk, but the benefits don’t stop there.

One study that looked at green tea consumption and risk of death in those that experienced a stroke or heart attack found that the biggest tea drinkers (7 cups per day) had up to a 62 percent lower risk of death when compared to non-green tea drinkers.

2. Beans

Beans are notorious for containing healthy-aging nutrients. From plant-based proteins to fiber to antioxidants, these little powerhouses pack a punch in the nutrition department. And since data shows that eating a plant-based diet is linked to reduced risk of early death, swapping out a heavy animal protein with beans a few times a week is a wise choice to support overall health,” says Lauren Manaker, M.S., RDN, LD, Charleston-based dietitian and author of Fueling Male Fertility.

3. Berries

Berries have long been studied for health benefits ranging from reducing risk of cardiovascular disease, protection against cancer, and lower levels of inflammation.

4. Salmon

“Salmon and other fatty fish supply vital omega-3 fats, lean protein, B-vitamins, selenium and iron, which offer health benefits such as lower risk of heart disease and an 80-90 percent lower risk of sudden cardiac death,” says Stark. “A seafood-rich diet has also been linked to lower risk for depression and improved memory and cognition,” she adds.

5. Grains

Grains (and carbs in general) have been demonized in recent years for their supposed connection to a variety of health concerns, but research truly supports the benefits of consuming whole grains for health and longevity. Whole grains are a staple in the diets of both Sardinians and Ikarians, two Blue Zone regions that follow a Mediterranean-style diet.

6. Vegetables

Broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, and other cruciferous vegetables are often talked about in their relation to a healthy digestive system (which is incredibly important for overall health), but eating these crunchy vegetables is also linked to a number of benefits related directly to living longer.
