The secret to living past 100 – revealed by a world famous MD

Dr. Richard Gerhauser discovered a group of seniors who are challenging the “natural laws” of the human lifespan.

They are living extremely long lives, but you would never guess how old they are by the way they’re living…

They act more like teeangers than men in their 80s and 90s… And they’re having more sex than teenagers too!

And they aren’t doing anything you think they are – they don’t worry about sugar, or exercise, or weight.

Many of them even smoke.

Here’s their secret to living past 100 naturally – with great health and excellent stamina.

4 weird ways to live past 100

Oxidative stress from free radicals is one of the prime suspects in aging and degeneration.

But oxidative stress is unavoidable.

These free radicals cause oxidative damage to cells, proteins, and even the DNA structure of the body.

Antioxidants clean up these free radicals and limit the damage caused by oxidative stress.

This study found amazing levels of antioxidants in mushrooms.

This study tested different varieties of mushrooms for levels of two powerful antioxidants: glutathione and ergothioneine.

These researchers took over a dozen types of culinary and medicinal mushrooms and powdered them after separating them into their different parts (cap and stem.)

Then they analyzed the mushrooms for antioxidant content.

The researchers found a wide variety of antioxidant levels between species – and in some cases between different parts of the same mushroom.

And they found very high amounts of antioxidants in mushrooms relative to other foods.

Lead researcher Robert Beelman said in a press release about the study:

“Mushrooms are the highest dietary source of these two antioxidants taken together, and that some types are really packed with both of them…”

Most of the mushrooms were high in glutathione.

“These results demonstrate that glutathione levels are high in most of the mushroom species analyzed.”

Maitake mushrooms had the highest amount of glutathione when measured by dry weight…

They had almost 2.5 mg per gram of mushroom.

Meat, fruits, and vegetables all contain glutathione.

Of course, diets in the West are increasingly grain-based. And low in antioxidants.

“Glutathione levels varied more than 20-fold – with some varieties having higher levels than reported for other foods.”

The highest amount of glutathione found in foods up to this point was 3.9 mg per gram of dried asparagus.

But this study showed that the maitake mushroom has twice as much glutathione as asparagus!

“Glutathione levels ranged up to 7.8 mg/g – indicating that the glutathione-rich mushrooms are higher in glutathione content than previously observed for any other vegetable or fruit.”

Ergothioneine (Ergo) was the other antioxidant they looked at. And it is closely related to glutathione and found only in mushrooms and bacteria.

Again, they found a very wide range of levels of this antioxidant across the different mushrooms.

They found that yellow oyster and porcini mushroom contain the highest levels of Ergo.

Maitake, porcini, and gray oyster mushrooms contain relatively high levels of both antioxidants.

The levels of these two antioxidant combined make mushrooms an incomparable food-based antioxidant.

“Based upon the very high levels of both Ergo and glutathione, mushrooms clearly represent a uniquely rich dietary source for antioxidants.”

Scientists found a positive statistical relationship between the two antioxidants…

When they found one antioxidant in high amounts in one mushroom, the other one tended to be high in the same mushroom.

“Ergothioneine levels also varied widely and were highly correlated with those of glutathione”

AND they found both antioxidants in higher levels in the cap than in the stem.

“Both antioxidants were more concentrated in pileus than stipe tissues in selected mushrooms species.”

In addition to this, the scientists examined the levels of antioxidants in portobello mushrooms harvested at different times.

They found that portobellos harvested in later crops had higher levels of antioxidants.

“Agaricus bisporus (portobello) harvested during the third cropping flush contained higher levels of ergothioneine and glutathione compared to the first flush”

Many scientists believe that free radicals are involved in aging and disease.

These free radicals are released from processes as simple as generating cellular energy… They are unavoidable.

When free radicals are high, we can get a lot of benefit from lowering them…

And the antioxidants found in these mushrooms could go a long way toward preventing free radical damage.

BUT some mushrooms are extremely toxic.

And some are only toxic when they are not prepared properly.

As Alexander McCall Smith said of the people who study mushrooms (mycologists):

“There are old mycologists and there are bold mycologists, but there are no old, bold mycologists.”

So be careful!

Properly selected and prepared mushrooms are safe and strongly associated with positive health outcomes in many societies.

You should consult a doctor about any suspected health problems.

And you should do plenty of research before incorporating medicinal mushrooms into your lifestyle.
