Ageless immune system

One of the most important ways you can strengthen your longevity is by boosting your immune system. There is typically a direct correlation between declining immune vitality and declining lifespan. This is common sense, since our immune system protects us from infections and helps us respond to various challenges to our healthy homeostasis.

The less efficient your immune system is the more prone you are to inflammation as well.  The good news is that the more you boost your immune system the better you’re able to cope with the health challenges of daily life regardless of your age.

Traditionally, people have been complacent about accepting reduced immune system function with age. But in challenging the limitations of aging, we must challenge the inevitability of the decline of our immune system as well. In other words, we need to create an ageless immune system by boosting our immune system continually . 

In the meantime, there are numerous supplements that have been shown to boost your immune system and therefore your longevity. These include Zinc, Vitamin C, DHEA, fish oils, and Reishi mushrooms, among others. As you explore these options, remember, just because you’ve been alive longer, doesn’t mean you have to passively accept declining immune function.


  1. Do you think humans will ever be able to stop aging?
  2. How long do you want to live? Why?
  3. Are older people actually wiser?

"To achieve longevity you will have cycles. No one gets there in one straight shot."

Rob Lowe

"How do you live a long life? Take a two mile walk every morning before breakfast."
