Can I be healthier if I make changes in my diet?

I know which are the basics of a healthier diet: lots of vegetables, fruits, whole grains, less sugar, less salt and some healthy fats. If I want to eat healthier some foods are especially helpful for health.

So, I can’t stop aging but I can slow it down with my diet changes and be healthier.


What are the most important 8 keys to health?

  • Fatty fish: eat salmon for a healthy heart, then sardine and mackerel, they have high omega-3 fatty acids.

Eat at least two servings a week.

  • Olive oil: cooking with olive oil helps lower “bad” cholesterol (LDL).
  • Tomatoes: have a high-level of lycopene. Lycopene is a natural content and it can help protect man from prostate cancer. You can cook or process tomatoes in paste, sauce or juice. Cooking tomatoes release more lycopene.
  • Broccoli: high in fiber and contains all sorts of vitamins and antioxidants.
  • Dietary fiber: from vegetables, legumes, whole grains and fruits – are important keys in your digestive system. They can help you lower your cholesterol and blood pressure.
  • Blueberries: full of antioxidants, vitamin C and vitamin E. Help keeping your body healthier.
  • Nuts: full of omega-3, fiber, protein and unsaturated fats. Nuts are healthy in nutrition, especially for your heart.
  • Red wine: alcohol in red wine may help ease your blood pressure, lower your cholesterol and prevent blood clots. But go easy, no more than one drink per day for women and two per day for men.



Need I take a diet supplements?

With aging, the body loses another valuable ingredient – a form of vitamin B3 known as nicotinamide riboside (NR) which increases the level of coenzyme (NAD) cells. This coenzyme is found in each cell and helps cells transform fat and carbohydrates into energy. By aging the coenzyme levels decrease. Can we do something about it?

How to get more NADs?

Leading team of scientists like:

Charles Brenner, Ph.D. Head of Biochemistry, University of Iowa, World’s Foremost Authority on NAD Metabolism

Roger Kornberg, Ph.D. Professor of Structural Biology, Stanford University, Nobel Prize Winner, Chemistry, 2006

Rudolph Tanzi, Ph.D. Kennedy Professor of Neurology, Harvard University, Leading Alzheimer’s Researcher, TIME 100 Most Influential 2015

in 2013, they successfully created a naturally identical form of nicotinamide riboside (NR) called TRU NIAGEN.

TRU NIAGEN  is a well-researched supplement: Dr.Charles Brenner PhD is specializing in cancer biology. He discovered that nicotinamide riboside (NR) helps cells boost levels of a coenzyme called NAD+. NR is form of vitamin B3. NAD+ is important for cells by helping them convert fat, protein and carbon into energy. It helps cells regulate the natural effects of aging. NAD+ substantially decreases with age.

NIAGEN is the first and only patented and FDA safety reviewed the form of nicotinamide riboside. It regulates cellular metabolism and has no negative side effects.

What are the advantages of NIAGEN?

  • Maintaining healthy cholesterol levels already within a normal range
  • Increased cellular metabolism and energy production
  • Supported liver function, especially after the stress
  • Staying healthy, longer

NIAGEN is “Generally Recognized as Safe” as confirmed by an FDA No Objection Letter.

8 ways to increase physical and mental energy

  1. Sleep enough. A good dream allows the body to rest and to activate protective functions. The body needs 6-8 hour good rest for relaxation.
  2. Surround yourself with positive thoughts, especially before sleep and in the morning after waking up. Meditation or positive affirmation helps physical and mental health. Let your day start with a positive attitude, nice thoughts, and the day will be filled with pleasure.
  3. Be grateful. In the constant search for something we should to do, we forget to thank for what we have. If we have the health, the children, the home, the pleasure in the heart, let’s thankful for that. These are great achievements and we do not think about it.
  4. Nutrition is an important factor for physical and mental health. Adjust your diet by getting enough of vegetables, fruits, cereals that are rich in antioxidants, fiber and healthy fats. In this way, we will improve our health and prevent some chronic illnesses.
  5. The liquid is one of the important factors. Our bodies consist of about 80% water. If the body dehydrates, we have to feel bad and tired. Drink plenty of water throughout the day.
  6. Proper breathing will give the body sufficient amount of oxygen. Most people breathe very shallow and our body does not work well. Learn deep breathing and improve all body functions.
  7. Bring the plants in your apartment if you do not have them. Plants have been used for thousands of years as alternative drugs for various diseases. Plants have vibrational frequencies that help regulate and energize our body.
  8. Walk enough. It’s a very important factor for physical and mental health. If you go to work – walk. Walk in your free time. One hour of walking in nature is a real benefit to body recovery from everyday stress and rush. Also, when you walk your body automatically responds to the breathing that becomes deeper.

I did not know about Niagen, it’s a discovery for me. A natural preparation that helps convert fat into energy should I take definitely. Thanks for the excellent post.

This is the first I have read about Niagen. What age could a person start taking this supplement? I am in my later thirties and am feeling the nutrients beginning to be depleted in my body. I definitely don’t get enough in my diet. Would this supplement be good for me?

Great information really. I like the benefits of Niagen, and that is well worth the purchase. You have some great ideas as well. I never thought much about eating certain foods and what they do for my body, like with tomatoes for example. Very informative post!


This is definitely interesting and helpful! I learned alot, and I’m sure I can help my mom more about diet if she asks about it. But Niagen is new to me, worth looking into for my families later on. Thank you for the info!


Hi Maja, What a great post. We are all aging but with all this information on healthy eating and the other great tips, should help to slow it down. If we eat better and exercise we can only feel better.
Loved this post.


Hi Maja, Love this post and all the great tips you have given us to be healthier. Fortunately we are living in a country which produces great fruit and vegetables and they are so easy to prepare. Will get some VitB3 as am sure it will do me good. All the best, Jill

Hi Maja, What a great post. I am very intrigued with NAD+…I had never heard of it, and it sounds like a wonder drug! Thank you so much for this information!


What a wonderful post! 8 ways to increase physical and mental energy are really helpful and everyone should read and know about them. Tru Niagen looks like a great supplement, thanks for sharing!
