Eden’s Gate experts decided to study the lifestyle of the oldest people on the planet to find out exactly what helped them live a record long time. It turns out that the secret lies in nutrition, writes “Eat This, Not That”.
Eden’s Gate is a British company founded to produce cannabidiol (CBD) products that can improve people’s quality of life by helping them feel happier. Because this company wants to help people live happier lives, it decided to explore the secrets of longevity on the planet.
In particular, the organization’s experts study the lifestyle of six people over the age of 100. They found that nutrition, exercise, stress levels and socioeconomic status were important factors in their longevity.
The oldest person on the list and in history is Jeanne-Louise Calment, who lived to be 122 and is the only person in the world to have survived more than 120 years. What is her secret to longevity? Three foods play an important role.
Chocolate, port and olive oil
Jeanne-Louise Calmen is a mystery while she is alive, and remains so even after her death. She died in 1997 at the age of 122, and when asked about the secrets of longevity, she replied: “Chocolate, port and olive oil.”
This is not surprising, given that many people over the age of 100 living in so-called “blue zones” (regions with the highest concentration of people over the age of 100) do consume olive oil and red wine on a regular basis. . Studies show that cold pressed olive oil helps control weight, lowers blood pressure, reduces inflammation and the risk of cardiovascular disease.
It has been found that red wine and dark chocolate also contain powerful antioxidants that help improve overall health if consumed in moderation.
Low stress levels are probably also an important factor. Kalman was a wealthy woman and in all her 122 years she had relatively little stress in her life. She has never worked full time, so it can be said that her stress levels were much lower than those of the average person. Because she did not have to work much, she was able to pursue active hobbies such as tennis, swimming, playing the piano and cycling.
So the valuable lessons we can learn from the oldest person in the world are: eat chocolate, drink wine, use olive oil and pursue a favorite hobby.
