What is the longevity diet?
At the core of the Longevity Diet are the timeless principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Ayurveda, Macrobiotics, the research on the cultures of longevity, and modern exploration in the field of epigenetics, nutritional science, medicinal mushrooms, and adaptogenic herbs. It is a healing, rejuvenating diet, grounded in simple, whole, nutrient-rich foods. Although rooted in ancient practice, the Longevity Diet is supported by modern scientific research.
