Sure, ideally everyone would be eating fresh, non-processed foods all of the time, but we get it. We know that it can be expensive to eat this way and that sometimes convenience and simple economics guide our decisions. So, here’s the question that begs answering: are there any healthy packaged foods? The answer is yes.
For all of you who think you just can’t eat healthy, you’re probably selling yourself short. A new study shows that these habits can, in fact, be learned.
Each morning, about 64% of adult Americans consume at least one cup of coffee.1
The brain responds by releasing noradrenaline that provides a quick energy boost. This is often followed by a “caffeine letdown” whereby noradrenaline in the brain is depleted and subsequent coffee fails to provide sufficient mental boost.
Is your skin losing its once youthful appearance? Have you noticed deeper and deeper wrinkles and more and more dark colored age-spots? We actually find this interesting.
Despite the cosmetic industry’s promises of youthful skin, aging men and women seem to be spending more money on serums and creams, yet remain unsatisfied with the results.
It’s no coincidence that our name is Life Extension. Our sole purpose is to find ways to extend the healthy, human life span. And if you haven’t noticed yet, it really is our passion.
Of course, eating healthy and exercising are top priorities for any anti-aging program, but we think there’s more to the story than that.
Most people are aware that a buildup of plaque in coronary arteries leads to heart disease, the cause of more American deaths than any other ailment.

Osteoarthritis is a joint disease caused by trauma, obesity, or most often a consequence of normal aging.
The most affected area in osteoarthritis is joint cartilage.
Cartilage consists of smooth tissue that covers the ends of bones in joints such as the knee, hip, and wrist. When cartilage is properly functioning, your bones effortlessly glide over each other with each movement. Cartilage also helps your joints absorb the impact of movement.
One of the most common ailments that limit individuals in their work, physical activity, and leisurely hobbies is arthritis.1
According to the CDC, in the U.S. there are about 52.5 million adults who’ve been diagnosed with arthritis, and 22.7 million who report limitations as a result.
According to the Singapore National Survey, about 1 in 4 Singapore residents aged 30 to 69 years have high blood pressure. For those aged 60 to 69, more than 1 in 2 persons have high blood pressure. This condition has been labelled the ‘silent killer’ because it may not give rise to any symptoms even when it is severe.
High blood pressure is a silent epidemic that threatens the lives of one in every three American adults. That’s not exactly encouraging.
For those who take blood pressure medications, actual control rates vary between less than half to only two-thirds. And the effects are even worse in the elderly.1,2
