What if I were to tell you that aging is a disease - not a necessary step in life - that can be reversed? I know it might seem like something out of a science fiction movie, but there's some really interesting research that's surfacing about how aging is actually in our power.
Scientific research today is pushing the boundaries around aging and longevity - and how we can live to be 100 (or older!). There are a few things we can do every day to shift our biological age. I really loved this conversation with Microbiologist, David Sinclair, Ph.D. - but here are some key takeaways:
1. Eat only when you're hungry: Intermittent Fasting has a ton of research that connects it to living longer lives - but if you find this difficult, focus on eating less often.
2. It's okay (and important) to stress the body out...in certain ways. One example - high intensity interval training. Another - eat organic and bright veggies, because they're producing molecules that signal longevity cell production in our bodies.
3. Being really, really cold is good: It doesn't have to be long either. Being in freezing cold water for at least a minute helps us develop brown fat, which is directly connected to longer lives.

Over the past year and a half my wellness routine has changed for the better. And based onrecent market research, my own experience is not unique. It seems that many people have given their exercise, meals, mental health and other well-being practices a massive rehaul as our lives have shifted to be more centered at home.

At Kosterina, we are deeply interested in the ways that we can reconnect to our ancient superpowers for longevity and long-term health. This week, we're diving into a fascinating topic that has been part of the human practice since hunter-gatherer days and its impact is proven by modern science: Intermittent Fasting.
