5 Foods That Will Help You Live Longer



One of the easiest ways to add years to your life is changing what you eat. 

More research is showing that diet is an important indicator of how long you’ll live, and whether or not you develop a number of life-shortening chronic diseases.

Here are five life-lengthening foods to start eating today!


Good news, nut-lovers: Your favourite snack could be adding years to your life.

Two studies from the Harvard School of Public Health both found that the more often people ate nuts, the lower their risk of dying young.

Just make sure you don’t overdo it — nuts are extremely energy-dense. The researchers suggest just a handful of nuts of any kind per day.

Whole Grains

You already know white bread is pretty much devoid of nutrients, but did you know it’s cheating you out of extra years?

Multiple studies have linked whole grain bread, pasta and other baked goods with greater longevity.

According to one study in JAMA Internal Medicine, each additional serving of whole grains eaten correlated to a 5% lower overall mortality risk and a 9% lower risk of death from heart problems.

Pay attention to your bread’s packaging. It should say 100% whole wheat.

Spicy Foods

Break out the chili sauce — research suggests that spicy foods may keep you healthy longer.

One study of more than 450,000 Chinese men and women showed that those who ate spicy foods six or seven days a week had a 14% lower mortality risk than those who ate spicy food just once or less during a typical week.


Here’s a good reason to have sushi tonight, and to order the seaweed salad: More than 1,000 studies have concluded that eating seaweed can suppress inflammation, boost your immune system, and slow the growth of cancer.

A review of the studies was published in a report titled The Japanese “Longevity” Dietary Constituent, which aims to explain why Japanese life expectancy is one of the highest in the world.


We’ve always thought of fish as brain food — and for a good reason.

Research suggests that compounds in fish called carotenoids can protect against neurological diseases.

What’s more, the omega-3s in fatty fish like salmon keep your whole body young. A study from Ohio State University found that omega-3-supplementation significantly reduced inflammation, a condition linked to everything from allergies to cancer, heart disease and Alzheimer’s.
Obviously maintaining a healthy diet and exercise is crucial to a long and healthy life but we don't all have the time to prepare these foods and stay on track.
