How Longevity Vitamins Can Help You Live a Healthier, Longer Life

New research suggests that you aren’t getting the key vitamins and minerals you need to live a longer, healthier life. A 10-year study published in October 2018 in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences identified several “longevity vitamins” as necessary to living a healthier, longer life. These are vitamins and minerals that can keep chronic diseases such as heart disease, certain types of cancer, and dementia at bay. Researchers classified the following as “longevity vitamins”: vitamin D, vitamin K, carotenoids (alpha carotene and beta carotene), astaxanthin, ergothioneine, pyrroloquinoline quinone, quinine, taurine, lutein, zeaxanthin, and lycopene.

The vitamin is also needed to produce an enzyme that promotes better blood flow. Over time, low vitamin K levels in the
