The key to living longer could be to eat a healthy, balanced diet – including at least five portions of fruit and vegetables every day – as well as regular exercise. But you could also boost your life expectancy by regularly eating yoghurt, it’s been claimed.
Maintaining a healthy lifestyle, including a well-rounded diet is crucial to prolonging your lifespan.
You could also boost your lifespan by doing regular exercise. It’s the “miracle cure” we’ve all been waiting for, according to the NHS.
Making some small diet or lifestyle changes could help to increase your life expectancy and avoid an early death.
One of the best ways to increase your life expectancy, as well as to help you lose weight, is to start eating more yoghurt, it’s been claimed.
“Studies have shown that yogurt can help counter many of the health problems associated with getting older, such as high blood pressure, osteoporosis, and unwanted weight gain,” they said, in their book ‘Eat Better Live Longer – Understand What Your Body Needs To Stay Healthy’.
“All yogurts are a great source of protein and calcium.
“Studies suggest one small pot [three to four tablespoons] a day offers the greatest health benefits.”
“The newest research suggests that ‘friendly’ probiotic bacteria in yogurt ‘crowd out’ bad bacteria that may affect satiety or the absorption of nutrients, meaning that we limit our calorie intake.”
Adding yoghurt to your breakfast routine could also help you to lose weight, they added.
People who eat yogurt gain less weight over time, and they are more likely to have a lower body mass index, a smaller waist, and less body fat.
Adding a low-fat yogurt to a diet rich in fruit and vegetables could help to lower blood pressure, studies have revealed.
Eating yogurt five times a week could lower the risk of high blood pressure by 20 percent, they claimed.
