  • Explains both normal and premature aging as observed in cell cycles, mitochondria function, and chromosome telomere length affected by oxygen free radicals and ROS.

  • Explains how the Standard American Diet (SAD) both contributes to free radical formation and at the same time is antioxidant-poor, both critical factors in promoting accelerated cell cycling and premature aging.

  • Promotes a modified Mediterranean Diet rich in antioxidants and nitrates, which aid in preventing chronic systemic inflammation that accelerates cell cycling and premature aging.

  • Includes a simple, self test of the efficacy of dietary nitrates in the diet in supplying NO.


Recent research findings on the impact of nutrition on telomere length is unlocking the potential to combat premature aging at the cellular level. We have learned that while aging is a natural cellular process, premature aging is not and it can be positively impacted by an Evidence-Based Proactive Nutrition to Slow Cellular Aging diet plan.

This book examines key elements of the biology of cell aging and focuses on enhancing mitochondrial function and preventing abnormal cell turnover thus preserving telomere length. It details the cellular damage caused by free radicals and ROS, explains the salutary effects of antioxidants, and the body’s need for adequate nitrates and other nutrient substrates from which the body derives nitric oxide (NO) to support cardiovascular health. This book is the first to feature a simple do-it-yourself test of the effects of the diet on the availability of NO for - heart health.

The book guides the reader through the rationale for a modified Mediterranean style diet that supplies the body with an adequate daily intake of essential nutrients, simple high antioxidants, and other functional foods. It includes simple, easy to prepare appealing recipes promoting a seamless transition to a healthy, age-defying lifestyle.
