The fountain of youth

Nutritional therapist and wellness author, Sally Beare, shares her research into living a longer, happier and healthier life, gleaned from the ‘longevity hot spots’ of the world. The best bit? The answers are simple and sustainable

real wellness

Remaining youthful and free of illness into your 90s and beyond passes without comment in certain places in the world. These ‘longevity hot spots’ caught my attention while I was working on a TV series about anti-ageing practices and products. Billions of pounds are spent on finding the medical Holy Grail: a pill to slow ageing and prevent disease.

Yet, in the longevity hot spots, people already seem to have the answers, and it all comes down to what they eat and do. I have been lucky enough to visit some of these idylls of health and happiness, and to see and taste their ‘secrets’ of eternal youth. The real-life Shangri-Las I have written about in my books are Symi in Greece, Campodimele in Italy, Okinawa in Japan, Bama in China and Hunza in Pakistan. I have also visited Barbagia in Sardinia and Nicoya in Costa Rica.

I was struck by the happy marriage of ancient wisdom and modern nutritional science in these places. So far, the answer to longevity has not been found in some lucrative magic bullet, but it can be found by harnessing some of nature’s best offerings.
