Maintaining a healthy lifestyle, including a well-rounded diet is crucial to prolonging your lifespan.
You could also boost your lifespan by doing regular exercise. It’s the “miracle cure” we’ve all been waiting for, according to the NHS.
Making some small diet or lifestyle changes could help to increase your life expectancy and avoid an early death.
One of the easiest ways to boost your overall health is to add more ginger to your diet.
“Studies show ginger fights nausea, stimulates bile production, relieve stomach discomfort, and speeds transit through the digestive tract,” they said in their book ‘Eat Better Live Longer – Understand What Your Body Needs To Stay Healthy’.
“It also helps to break up and dispel intestinal gas, to counter bloating.
“Ginger’s strong anti-inflammatory action may help to relieve pain associated with conditions such as arthritis,” they said.
“A review of five studies found taking ginger reduced pain by nearly a third and disability by 22 percent in people with osteoarthritis.”
Spices, in general, are a great source of antioxidants, they added.
Dried spices contain a more concentrated source of antioxidants, while freezing preserves the antioxidants in fresh spices.
Meanwhile, you could also lower your risk of an early death by eating a handful of nuts every day.
Nuts could protect against a number of other conditions, including kidney disease, diabetes, and bowel cancer.
