๐Ÿ“š Book review: Lifespan

Recently read: Lifespan: Why We Age and Why We Donโ€™t Have To by David Sinclair ๐Ÿ“š

This book was a random pick from the local library. I challenged myself to read a book on a different domain, this one caught my attention, and fortunately turned out to be very accessible. Lifespan talks about latest research from cellular biology about aging and how it can be slowed, heck, even reversed. David Sinclair is a researcher at Harvard, and the book is a distilled down version of his and related research from the field. The premise, that you can increase your lifespan to 150 even 200 years, was mind bending and the book lived up to it. The gist of slowing aging, according to the book, is: Intermittent fasting, cold showers, High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) at least once a day and taking drugs like NMN-to boost NAD (a lifespan enabler molecule that we keep losing as we age). This is a good book summary if youโ€™re curious, or I recommend at least watching some of the authorโ€™s interviews.

My rating: 4/5.
