Researchers from the Helfgott Research Institute found that a healthy diet and active lifestyle can balance DNA methylation, which will rapidly reduce our biological age. Therefore help us to live longer.
DNA methylation is a term used to describe the damage and loss of function to our cells, tissue and organs.
The study analysed 43 healthy adult males between ages 50 and 72, where the 8-week programme included guidance on diet, sleep, exercise and relaxation.
