What are the key factors that impact how you age and your level of health as you get older? What do we need to be practicing on a day-to-day basis to have increased wellness, which tees us up for a long life? Longevity, aging, and the warning signs that you may not be aging correctly are today’s hot topics that are being discussed by Dr. Jockers and Jason Prall.

Jason Prall is the creator of ‘The Human Longevity Project’. He’s interviewed centenarians (people who are 100 years or older) and visited ‘blue zone’ communities where people are aging well. He is also the author of the book ‘Beyond Longevity’. 

He brings his wealth of experience in the field of longevity to this fascinating episode of Functional Nutrition. There’s hope abundant in the form of human ingenuity, as we shape how we age. This is a deep dive into the very meaning of life as we seek to live long and prosper.

The discussion is: how long can we live? And: is aging a disease that needs to be sort of solved and cured? And I think these are very interesting conversations. Fundamentally I actually like the hope and this human ingenuity that we can do anything we want.Jason Prall

Purality Health

Today’s sponsor is Purality Health. Are hidden toxins and stressors making you feel run down and tired? Are you worried about oxidative stress from exposure to EMF, 5G, heavy metals, chemicals, and processed foods? Toxic is the new normal in our modern world.

Toxins in our body take on the role of free radicals, causing oxidative damage on a cellular level that can lead to premature aging and a lower quality of life. One of the most powerful antioxidants known to man is glutathione. It fights free radicals while repairing DNA. However, not all glutathione supplements are created equal. If you’re taking it in capsule or tablet form, you’re missing out on key nutrients that will pass through your body without being absorbed.

Purality Health has a patented formula that utilizes Micelle Liposomal technology which delivers the glutathione nutrients into your bloodstream, which has been proven to be 800% more efficient. Backed by a 180-day money-back guarantee, you can find them at puralityhealth.com and use the coupon code ‘DRJ’ to get a 30% discount coupon.

Paleovalley Bone Broth

When it comes to gut health, bone broth is one of my go-to items I add to my diet. But, not all collagen is created equal. Many brands use poor-quality bones and heating methods that remove all of the potent benefits of collagen.

And that is why I choose to use Paleovalley Bone Broth Protein Powder, you can get all the gut healing benefits without the mess from a company that uses only 100% grass-fed and finished cows and is not processed with high heat or extracted with harmful chemicals.

There are no fillers, flow agents or added flavors. There is only ONE ingredient in this product and its bovine bone broth protein. That’s it. Hurry and grab yours from Paleovalley.com/jockers to save 15% off today!
