Ashleigh keeps it short and sweet today by reading a brilliant article on aging and mitigating its effects by Dr. Jason Kremer. Longevity: You are in Control appears in Paleo Magazine, which gives us an idea of the high-quality content to be found between the covers of the publication. A key point made early on in Kremer’s article is that genetics only accounts for 10-25% of our overall health, implying that we are mostly the masters of our destiny when it comes to combating aging. The crux of Kramer’s article is that the aging process is linked to mitochondria and telomere health, so looking after them is our anti-aging imperative.

Mitochondria are known as the powerhouses of our cells, producing our primary source of energy: adenosine triphosphate or ATP. Telomeres are segments of repeating DNA found at the ends of chromosomes. These two structures can be looked after by implementing a series of lifestyle practices, including taking supplements, eating healthily, fasting, reducing toxin intake, exercising regularly and making bodily contact with the earth's surface and sun.
