Simple Anti-Aging Secrets to Look Younger Than Your Age

Hey guys, Dr. Axe here, doctor of natural
medicine and founder of In this video, I’ll be talking about natural
anti-aging secrets to make you look younger than you actually are. I’ll tell you, have you ever noticed that
some people look much older than they are and some people look much younger? Well, I’ll be talking about the best essential
oils, vitamin supplements, natural treatments, and diets to help you look younger, faster,
tone and tighten up that skin here as well. Let’s dive right in. Number one, this might surprise you. Follow a ketogenic diet or move in and out
of ketosis. The ketogenic diet or ketosis is where your
body starts burning fat as fuel, or fat for energy. Your body’s first source of fuel is typically
carbohydrates or sugar. Your body will burn that up and use it for
energy. If you remove sugar from your diet and consume
a diet that’s higher in fat and a moderate amount of protein, your body will start burning
fat for energy. Ketones have actually been shown to be one
of your brain’s favorite sources of fuel. It can actually help balance insulin levels. Insulin is that hormone that, when it gets
off, can cause issues with diabetes or other hormone problems or lack of energy or those
sort of energy ups and downs during the day. A ketogenic diet really kind of helps your
body keep a steady state of insulin throughout the day, and by doing that can help you actually
age slower and look younger. What I recommend to most of my patients is
following a diet where on some days you’re ketosis, some days you’re not, over time. But starting off with a ketogenic diet is
also by far the number one diet to help you lose weight and lose it fast and keep the
weight off. Number two, eat more superfoods on a daily
basis. Do a superfood powder every morning in your
smoothie with organic super greens, something that has spirulina or chlorella, those really
dark-colored algaes, berries such as the Siberian goji berry, which are very high in antioxidants. Also certain herbs like turmeric and ginger
and cayenne pepper and rosemary and cinnamon. Consume more superfoods, especially super
herbs, super vegetables, and super berries on a daily basis. All of those will help you look younger, longer. A few other foods as well. Wild-caught salmon, high in omega-3 fats,
is great for reducing inflammation in the body and helping you age slower, as is bone
broth. Bone broth or consuming a protein powder from
bone broth is great, very high in collagen. As you age your body starts producing less
collagen, so if you can get more collagen in your diet, it can tone and firm up your
skin and help naturally thicken your hair, help thicken your nails, and help improve,
giving you glowing skin. Get more of these nutrient-dense superfoods
in your diet on a daily basis to help you age slower, and practice those principles
of anti-aging. Number three, drink tea. One of my favorite teas is green tea, especially
matcha. Green tea contains a compound called EGCG,
which stands for epigallocatechin. This herb or this tea has been shown to fight
cancer, fight heart disease, and promote youthful-looking skin. So if you really want to age slower and naturally
support healthy energy levels, drink green tea every single day. Especially sencha and matcha are the two most
powerful types of green tea to get in your diet every single day. And also things like white tea and rooibos
and oolong can be great teas as well. Age-fighting oils. Pomegranate oil, carrot seed oil, apricot
oil. Those are great types of carrier oils, and
using those in conjunction with essential oils such as geranium, lavender, myrrh, and
other floral oils like rose can really help hydrate the skin. In fact, there is a reference in biblical
medicine, where Esther in the Bible uses five floral oils, including myrrh, for six months
getting ready for her wedding. And it actually says in there that these were
very effective beauty treatments, and she was again a very beautiful woman. So they were used historically, these are
used today, but again, I would use carrier oils such as pomegranate or carrot seed oil,
and then blend in essential oils like geranium, myrrh, and lavender. Use those on your skin as an anti-aging serum
daily, great for reducing aging of your skin. Number five here, follow a Blue Zone diet. Now, here’s the thing you got to know. Everybody’s different, everybody does good
with different types of diets. Some people do better with the ketogenic diet,
some people do better with a Mediterranean diet. Some people do better with a traditional Chinese
medicine diet. It’s good to know yourself. Here’s the truth with everyone, though. Most people need to eat more herbs and vegetables,
okay? That’s an absolute. So as part of a Blue Zone diet, you’ll notice
in Blue Zones there are a lot of plants, there are a lot of vegetables, herbs, fruit. Along with that, oftentimes wild-caught meats,
like wild salmon, grass-fed beef, organic chicken and turkey. But here’s the key. Real food. All of the civilizations where people lived
in a Blue Zone, which meant they had a lot of people living to be 100 years old or older,
their diet was very high in nutrients and anti-oxidants, and they didn’t eat much processed
food at all. That’s the key. So following a Blue Zone-like diet can absolutely
help you live longer. Number six, take the right supplements. If you want to age slower, here are the top
supplements I would recommend. Number one, a protein powder that comes from
bone broth. Remember, you got to get more collagen in
your diet on a daily basis. Number two, ashwagandha. Ashwagandha is an herb that supports your
thyroid and adrenals. It can also help slow the aging process. Number three, I would recommend taking an
organic super greens powder or a green superfood. It’s where you’re getting greens and superfoods
in powder form, adding that into a smoothie or a beverage a day. That’s number three. Number four is I would do an omega-3 supplement. Omega-3, such as a fish oil, can help reduce
inflammation in the body, helping you live longer. And then a high quality multi-vitamin can
also be great, a great natural anti-aging supplement. Number seven, exercise. Now what’s really unique is if you study the
Blue Zones, people that lived longer didn’t necessarily do a lot of weight training or
they didn’t necessarily go into a lot of running. They were active. That was really it, they were very active. So that’s the key here. It’s not doing this really regimented exercise
program. It was moving, but listen, not sometimes,
every day being active. Going on long walks, jogging in the park,
doing some weights, sometimes doing yoga, sometimes doing barre, sometimes doing Pilates,
or picking one thing and consistently just moving on a daily basis can help you age slower
and live longer. Number eight, medicinal mushrooms. In fact, reishi mushroom in China was known
as the mushroom of immortality. In Russia, chaga is known as the mushroom
or the fungus of anti-aging. And a very similar thing, if you look at Ayurvedic
medicine and how they might use cordyceps and other types of very unique mushrooms. So mushrooms actually really support the immune
system, can slow the aging process, and they’re really high in a type of polysaccharides that
supports cellular communication and your body’s repair system, helping your skin heal. Intermittent fasting. Most the time, we eat right when we wake up
and we stop eating sometime around bedtime. So we might eat even in a 16-hour window. You got to remember this principle. Listen, this is one of the most important
things I’ll ever say in regards to anti-aging. Foods don’t heal you, your body heals itself. Your body has a better chance to heal itself
when your organs aren’t working. When you’re consuming fat, your liver is working. When you’re consuming carbs, your stomach’s
working. When you’re consuming certain other foods,
your colon is working. We want to rest your body, give it time to
rest and heal. And so intermittent fasting is where you maybe
only eat during a six-hour window. So maybe you start eating around noon and
you finish up, you eat at noon, 3:00, and 6:00 or just noon and 6:00 rather than eating
breakfast. So you skip breakfast, you don’t eat late
at night, and you maybe only eat to a 6- to 8-hour window, rather than a 16-hour window. What this does is it allows your body to rest,
repair, heal, and cleanse. People have been fasting for health almost
since the beginning of time. It’s a principle that’s practiced in all different
types of medicine, from Greek medicine to Chinese medicine to Biblical medicine, and
it has great benefits. But intermittent fasting, basically skipping
breakfast and then consuming a diet that’s high in vegetables, that’s high in herbs,
that’s high in wild meats and fruits, things like that, is a great way to age slower. The reason is as well, it helps balance out
insulin levels and it helps increase human growth hormone, which is known as your anti-aging
hormone, keeping you younger, longer, both for men and for women. So remember these tips when it comes to aging
slower. And really, in order to look younger than
you actually are, try out a ketogenic diet. Consume more superfoods such as spirulina
and acai berries. Drink tea, especially green tea like matcha. Use age-fighting oils like pomegranate and
carrot seed oil, lavender, geranium, and myrrh. Follow a Blues Zones diet. Big thing there, eat real food. Use certain supplements like we’ve talked
about, a protein powder that comes from bone broth, ashwagandha, omega-3 fats, a multivitamin,
and an organic super greens powder. Exercise and just move daily. Try out some additional mushrooms like reishi,
cordyceps, shiitake, chaga. And practice intermittent fasting. These are all ways that have been scientifically
and medically proven to slow the aging process, help you look younger. And if you’ve enjoyed this live training video,

  1. Would the Bone Broth Protein powder be considered "real, not processed" food? Also, women at risk for osteoporosis are advised to do weight bearing exercise so just keeping moving can't stimulate new bone growth right?

  2. I eat Salmon Belly regularly, it is very high in Omega-3 fat and much cheaper than Salmon Meat. However, I never read any High Fat Diet gurus recommend it. Why?

  3. Dr. Josh Axe – can you recommend a brand or a few brands that you trust for the Omega 3 supplement, with so many out there a person just get lost and really don't know what is a really good organic and truthful brand to buy it the right one. Thank Ana

  4. anti aging secrets? BS your on a bandwagon. no secrets on these bandwagons, unsubscribe. gonna go eat some fish and super foods.

  5. Dr Axe, can you recommend a way to get rid of stubborn belly fat that women get after 50? I dance ballet, exercise, fast more than 12 hours before eating breakfast, don't drink alcohol, have collagen powder daily, take multi vitamins, eat healthily, not much sugar (except I do put a tablespoon on raw, unrefined honey in my collagen shake), eat vegetables, Wild caught salmon, reishi, corticeps, green tea…. I look great, but can't get rid of that damn belly!!! So frustrating! Can you think of anything I could be overlooking?!

  6. i buy my botanical oils from garden of wisdom.. i'll be 50 and i SWEAR by jojoba oil, pomegranate and i do blend essential oils w/both botanical oils AND witch hazel, believe it or not….!i swear by geranium. .hands down!!! and elemi.. cheaper than frankincense but has similar properties….

  7. Do you know of any specific methods that prevent loose skin during a weight loss journey? Can you do a video on this?

  8. Sun is bad for your health.
    Harmful UV radiation or sun light is the major cause of premature ageing.
    Countries who get the least harmful UV radiation(sun light) on their skin live the longest do the best such as Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Canada, Japan etc.
    Countries who get the most sun do the worst such all the countries on the equator they have the shortest life expectancy.

  9. Thank you for this info, Dr. Axe. I'm studying more and more about the ketogenic diet. I'm considering this for several of my patients. THANKS! Lindy Ford, RD, LDN

  10. OK hackers well at least you subscribe me to a healthy advice YouTube channel. Please stop and leave me alone and get a life.

  11. I am sorry but the healthiest strongest people I know are people who have been on a primarily starch based diet with a lot of physical activity, good sleep and low stress. this whole keto epidemic is exaggerated and quite frankly dangerous

  12. I am a Vegan. I have been drinking or taking Wheatgrass/Spiralina/Chlorella…E3-Live Supplements. I am a Yoga/Fitness Instructor. I gave up heavy lifting 20 years ag and got into Yoga. I knew most of all this..mainly Superfoods Goji Acai Goldenberry Noni Maca..Drink Kombucha. I eat two decent meals Lunch and Dinner like he said because I drink Smoothies and eat Salads. I go 10 miles on the sand early in the morning…and Yoga; Iyengar handing on ropes. Im a Singer which has benefits. People ask why I look half my age..My body heals itself….Everything we eat is downloaded into our DNA. Thank you God for choosing me and Redeeming me through your son..My Savior Jesus Christ.


  14. The main one for me is stress reduction. I take time to relax. I look way young for my age and when I get asked what my secret is, I tell them "eat nutritious food, exercise everyday and most importantly, learn how to relax – I live a stress free, drama free life".

  15. Dr. Axe. I want to be vegan. Plus I am on a very low fixed income and eat basically a SAD diet. Some days we don't eat. How can I possibly help myself and my daughter. We cannot afford organic and I can't eat meat. Help. I'm so sick, I've given up. 😢😢😢

  16. I enjoy all of Dr Axe's videos on health. He is very knowledgeable and I personally have experienced a difference in my wellbeing by following his advance.

  17. I love your advice but a lot of the things you mention are expensive unfortunately and out of reach for lower income individuals

  18. what about omega 3 from ground chia, hemp and flax? you just need a single tbsp to cover your daily requirement… also omega 3 are really heat sensitve. so if you wanna get them from fish you would have to eat it raw or at least raw-ish. ugh

  19. Not bad. Such an anti sugar vibe out there. I think it gets a bad rap, but this video encourages a healthy unprocessed high fat diet: THAT is a solid foundation

  20. Supplements:
    1) bone broth – collagen
    2) ashwagandha – herb support thyroid
    3) organic supergreen powder/green superfoods in powder form
    4) omega-3

  21. Very excited to hear this simple explanation of Ketogenic diets and Intermittent fasting and how it helps with anti aging, very awesome content, thanks so much for sharing, Loved it!

  22. Why does everything he says and recommends to eat is hard to find , never heard of and phrases not commonly used😐😐😐😐😐

  23. 16 hour Intermittent fasting works for me, eating daily between 3-4pm. You do get used to this fasting, and feel great! especially after seeing results in my skin, body, soul, and my whole out look on life in general.

  24. Dr. Axe may God bless you for all these informations you give us. I watch your videos every day even im thinking to become nutritionist even if im 33 years .

  25. lol. i didnt care much till i got annoyed that police catch me all the TIME, doing adult stuff (drinking, driving, smoking, R18 shops) when im really coming to mid 30s. Hell, even buying a cigg or beer from a konbini, they ask for my age! Then i search and lookup and found this video.

    I realized I have been doing 5 out of 9 in the list throughout my life without me knowing. What was troublesome became a gift to me. To look young!

    1. Superfood (just want something fast and start my day)
    2. Drink tea (been drinking tea as a kid and my fav go to drink)
    3. Blue zone diet (meat taste will get bored, so i eat vege like 3 days in a week)
    4. Exercise (Cycling is my hobby, cause i like to move my legs)
    5. Fasting (Every sat or sun, I am lazy to eat so i just drink water and go back to sleep)

    Now, i want to look young forever. Got to try supplements and #1 too.

  26. Hi Dr Josh, I have a question: Can I use the multi collagen protein together with live cell therapy? I'm in the 3rd jar powder now and the live cell therapy is coming on the way.

  27. Hi Guys.. I am Selling Spirulina, the super food supplement 😊

    Here's the Link

  28. 😘😘😘 u know.. u explain really good.. I follow ..wht ever u say.. 😘😘😘 I m also ayurvedic pharmacist
    . n I love to watch your video.. from India

  29. You are THEE most informative herbal specialist ever. You dont rush through your explanations and you seem to really care. Thank you. Even your guests take their time and get their point across. Love it love it love it. Thanks again.

  30. Im Vegan. But i dont do these thing religiously. People cant believe in 27' always get to hear im.18. Which is annoying. A lot of it has to do with gebes I guess.

    But id say for me. It is Omega 3 oil and green tea. Ive done it since I was 17.

    Otherwise skip the meat. Eat wild caught salmon twice a month.

    Im moving more towards a vegan diet though.

  31. Somewhat of a misleading title! Your title specifically focused on "looking younger" but halfway into your tips you start focusing first and foremost on longevity. People who turn 100 could have still looked twice their age most of their lives…

  32. How comes you never ever mention yerba mate which is getting very popular due to a lot of professional footballers talking it up….I have read your article on it and it sounds like the healthiest drink in the world

  33. I am just learning about essential oils and have learned a lot from watching your videos. Question: if the essential oils says for aroma therapy only can it be put on the skin?

  34. Would someone please tell me their opinion on those hair skin and nails vitamins? Are they helpful? Collagen niacin and biotin.
