The problem is that your mitochondria get weaker over time. That’s due to factors like stress, diet and environmental toxins. Many symptoms of aging, like fatigue and brain fog, have one common cause: mitochondrial inefficiency.  Turning back the clock starts with healthy cells.

The keto diet is a high-fat, moderate protein, lower-carb style of eating that puts your body in ketosis, a state where you burn fat for fuel. Does it support anti-aging? Science says yes. The keto diet increases mitochondrial function and protects your mitochondria from stress-related damage. In animal studies, the keto diet makes mitochondria more efficient and promotes the growth of new ones. To take your nutrition to the next level, try the ketogenic diet.
Yup. Stress affects your entire body, from your skin to your hormones to your immune system. Chronic stress increases your risk of depression, anxiety and cognitive decline.
Research from the University of California, San Francisco, found that stress shortens your telomeres — the casing at the end of your DNA strands that protects your cells. When the telomere is too short, the cell dies or contributes to inflammation. This is part of the aging process. To stay healthy as you age, take steps to stabilize your telomere length: manage stress, get quality sleep and eat well (and get your antioxidants).
Nutrition is a key part of your overall lifestyle. That’s because what you eat becomes the fuel that powers your cells and makes you, you. This also means that your diet is a lifestyle factor that can contribute to the development of chronic disease.
There is no single anti-aging diet (or magic anti-aging foods), but certain styles of eating can help promote longevity. Cover your bases by eating a diet rich in whole foods, quality fats and protein. In animal and preliminary human studies, intermittent fasting has been shown to support healthy aging. In rodent studies, intermittent fasting has been found to help regulate blood sugar and make neurons more resilient. That’s why intermittent fasting is big in anti-aging circles.

Everything from your environment to your stress levels can contribute to inflammation. It’s important to note that inflammation isn’t necessarily a bad thing. It’s your body’s natural response to injury, and it’s intended to provide protection and promote healing. But when inflammation sticks around, it increases your risk of chronic disease and age-related conditions.
So, what causes inflammation? Here are a few key lifestyle factors:
Eating inflammatory foods: Think excess sugar, highly processed vegetable oils, fried foods and ultra-processed foods. And if you have food sensitivities, eating certain foods like gluten and dairy can trigger inflammation.
Stress: Chronic stress can cause your stress hormones to fall out of balance — specifically, your cortisol levels. This has a huge impact on your body’s inflammatory response.
Gut imbalances: You want a balanced gut microbiome to help keep the bad bacteria in check. That’s because certain gut bacteria can contribute to inflammation. A 2017 animal study found that an imbalance of good and bad gut bacteria causes inflammation, suggesting that healthy aging is, at least in part, controlled by a healthy diet.
