We also cover brain health, neuroplasticity, curiosity, and novelty.Nutrition and Diet: Food and nutrition advice for those over 40, over 50, over 60 and over 70 are based in science as well. Everything from hydration, supplements, collagen, fasting, micronutrients, macronutrients, autophagy, and cellular clean up all help in increasing longevity. As we age, when we eat is just as important as what we eat – especially for women entering perimenopause and menopause. SuperAge experts discuss: how much water we need for proper hydration, the importance of keeping up our bone density, and why adding 15 colorful foods a day is helpful for gut health.Fitness and Exercise: We’ve grown up hearing about the importance of exercise. But for fitness over 50 and to increase longevity, weight lifting, aerobic activities and HIIT (high intensity interval training) sessions play an important role. At AGEIST, we believe in tracking not just our activity, but our recovery time as well. It’s in the recovery that our body does the work to improve our overall health and fitness.Meditation: Reducing stress and lowering anxiety can play a big role in improving overall health. Learn how reducing stress from traumatic events, job strain, and finances can slow down the aging of our immune system. Meditation - guided or on your own is an important tool for reducing stress and anxiety. Travel and Culture: It’s all about the adventure. Travel is a favorite activity for those of us in our 50's, 60’s, 70’s and 80'. Hear from experts on the best places for travel over 50, what to wear over 50, and how to make the most of your time in retirement years. Finance: We approach finances through the lens of what proper financial planning and budgeting can do for your lifestyle after 50. Our retirement experts discuss: lifetime income, retirement planning, saving and investing, the stock market, IRAs, and 401k plans. Career: Professional endeavors do not end at the typical retirement age anymore. We are seeing more and more encore careers, passion careers, entrepreneurs, and breaking of the glass ceiling. AGEIST believes that diversity and inclusion in business and in life are enriching for us all. How will you SuperAge?

Love this podcast and newsletter!

David’s passion for learning and sharing is infectious and current (he does his research!). He discusses topics that are interesting and meaningful for those who are trying to maximize life in our later years. Despite having more financial resources than other generations, we are treated as invisible in our culture. Thanks for the insights, relevancy and enthusiasm David!!

Great podcast to support aging health

I’ve been listening for several months, and this podcast along with the Ageist newsletter are one of the few I really look forward to each week. Informative, upbeat, interesting guests. I’ve learned a lot, which is helping me stay healthy as I enter my 60s.
