Hey guys, Dr. Axe here, doctor of natural
medicine and founder of draxe.com.
In this video, I’ll be talking about natural
anti-aging secrets to make you look younger
than you actually are.
I’ll tell you, have you ever noticed that
some people look much older than they are
and some people look much younger?
Well, I’ll be talking about the best essential
oils, vitamin supplements, natural treatments,
and diets to help you look younger, faster,
tone and tighten up that skin here as well.
Let’s dive right in.
Number one, this might surprise you.
Follow a ketogenic diet or move in and out
The ketogenic diet or ketosis is where your
body starts burning fat as fuel, or fat for
Your body’s first source of fuel is typically
carbohydrates or sugar.
Your body will burn that up and use it for
If you remove sugar from your diet and consume
a diet that’s higher in fat and a moderate
amount of protein, your body will start burning
fat for energy.
Ketones have actually been shown to be one
of your brain’s favorite sources of fuel.
It can actually help balance insulin levels.
Insulin is that hormone that, when it gets
off, can cause issues with diabetes or other
hormone problems or lack of energy or those
sort of energy ups and downs during the day.
A ketogenic diet really kind of helps your
body keep a steady state of insulin throughout
the day, and by doing that can help you actually
age slower and look younger.
What I recommend to most of my patients is
following a diet where on some days you’re
ketosis, some days you’re not, over time.
But starting off with a ketogenic diet is
also by far the number one diet to help you
lose weight and lose it fast and keep the
Number two, eat more superfoods on a daily
Do a superfood powder every morning in your
smoothie with organic super greens, something
that has spirulina or chlorella, those really
dark-colored algaes, berries such as the Siberian
goji berry, which are very high in antioxidants.
Also certain herbs like turmeric and ginger
and cayenne pepper and rosemary and cinnamon.
Consume more superfoods, especially super
herbs, super vegetables, and super berries
on a daily basis.
All of those will help you look younger, longer.
A few other foods as well.
Wild-caught salmon, high in omega-3 fats,
is great for reducing inflammation in the
body and helping you age slower, as is bone
Bone broth or consuming a protein powder from
bone broth is great, very high in collagen.
As you age your body starts producing less
collagen, so if you can get more collagen
in your diet, it can tone and firm up your
skin and help naturally thicken your hair,
help thicken your nails, and help improve,
giving you glowing skin.
Get more of these nutrient-dense superfoods
in your diet on a daily basis to help you
age slower, and practice those principles
Number three, drink tea.
One of my favorite teas is green tea, especially
Green tea contains a compound called EGCG,
which stands for epigallocatechin.
This herb or this tea has been shown to fight
cancer, fight heart disease, and promote youthful-looking
So if you really want to age slower and naturally
support healthy energy levels, drink green
tea every single day.
Especially sencha and matcha are the two most
powerful types of green tea to get in your
diet every single day.
And also things like white tea and rooibos
and oolong can be great teas as well.
Pomegranate oil, carrot seed oil, apricot
Those are great types of carrier oils, and
using those in conjunction with essential
oils such as geranium, lavender, myrrh, and
other floral oils like rose can really help
hydrate the skin.
In fact, there is a reference in biblical
medicine, where Esther in the Bible uses five
floral oils, including myrrh, for six months
getting ready for her wedding.
And it actually says in there that these were
very effective beauty treatments, and she
was again a very beautiful woman.
So they were used historically, these are
used today, but again, I would use carrier
oils such as pomegranate or carrot seed oil,
and then blend in essential oils like geranium,
myrrh, and lavender.
Use those on your skin as an anti-aging serum
daily, great for reducing aging of your skin.
Number five here, follow a Blue Zone diet.
Now, here’s the thing you got to know.
Everybody’s different, everybody does good
with different types of diets.
Some people do better with the ketogenic diet,
some people do better with a Mediterranean
Some people do better with a traditional Chinese
It’s good to know yourself.
Here’s the truth with everyone, though.
Most people need to eat more herbs and vegetables,
That’s an absolute.
So as part of a Blue Zone diet, you’ll notice
in Blue Zones there are a lot of plants, there
are a lot of vegetables, herbs, fruit.
Along with that, oftentimes wild-caught meats,
like wild salmon, grass-fed beef, organic
chicken and turkey.
But here’s the key.
All of the civilizations where people lived
in a Blue Zone, which meant they had a lot
of people living to be 100 years old or older,
their diet was very high in nutrients and
anti-oxidants, and they didn’t eat much processed
food at all.
That’s the key.
So following a Blue Zone-like diet can absolutely
help you live longer.
Number six, take the right supplements.
If you want to age slower, here are the top
supplements I would recommend.
Number one, a protein powder that comes from
Remember, you got to get more collagen in
your diet on a daily basis.
Number two, ashwagandha.
Ashwagandha is an herb that supports your
thyroid and adrenals.
It can also help slow the aging process.
Number three, I would recommend taking an
organic super greens powder or a green superfood.
It’s where you’re getting greens and superfoods
in powder form, adding that into a smoothie
or a beverage a day.
That’s number three.
Number four is I would do an omega-3 supplement.
Omega-3, such as a fish oil, can help reduce
inflammation in the body, helping you live
And then a high quality multi-vitamin can
also be great, a great natural anti-aging
Number seven, exercise.
Now what’s really unique is if you study the
Blue Zones, people that lived longer didn’t
necessarily do a lot of weight training or
they didn’t necessarily go into a lot of running.
They were active.
That was really it, they were very active.
So that’s the key here.
It’s not doing this really regimented exercise
It was moving, but listen, not sometimes,
every day being active.
Going on long walks, jogging in the park,
doing some weights, sometimes doing yoga,
sometimes doing barre, sometimes doing Pilates,
or picking one thing and consistently just
moving on a daily basis can help you age slower
and live longer.
Number eight, medicinal mushrooms.
In fact, reishi mushroom in China was known
as the mushroom of immortality.
In Russia, chaga is known as the mushroom
or the fungus of anti-aging.
And a very similar thing, if you look at Ayurvedic
medicine and how they might use cordyceps
and other types of very unique mushrooms.
So mushrooms actually really support the immune
system, can slow the aging process, and they’re
really high in a type of polysaccharides that
supports cellular communication and your body’s
repair system, helping your skin heal.
Most the time, we eat right when we wake up
and we stop eating sometime around bedtime.
So we might eat even in a 16-hour window.
You got to remember this principle.
Listen, this is one of the most important
things I’ll ever say in regards to anti-aging.
Foods don’t heal you, your body heals itself.
Your body has a better chance to heal itself
when your organs aren’t working.
When you’re consuming fat, your liver is working.
When you’re consuming carbs, your stomach’s
When you’re consuming certain other foods,
your colon is working.
We want to rest your body, give it time to
rest and heal.
And so intermittent fasting is where you maybe
only eat during a six-hour window.
So maybe you start eating around noon and
you finish up, you eat at noon, 3:00, and
6:00 or just noon and 6:00 rather than eating
So you skip breakfast, you don’t eat late
at night, and you maybe only eat to a 6- to
8-hour window, rather than a 16-hour window.
What this does is it allows your body to rest,
repair, heal, and cleanse.
People have been fasting for health almost
since the beginning of time.
It’s a principle that’s practiced in all different
types of medicine, from Greek medicine to
Chinese medicine to Biblical medicine, and
it has great benefits.
But intermittent fasting, basically skipping
breakfast and then consuming a diet that’s
high in vegetables, that’s high in herbs,
that’s high in wild meats and fruits, things
like that, is a great way to age slower.
The reason is as well, it helps balance out
insulin levels and it helps increase human
growth hormone, which is known as your anti-aging
hormone, keeping you younger, longer, both
for men and for women.
So remember these tips when it comes to aging
And really, in order to look younger than
you actually are, try out a ketogenic diet.
Consume more superfoods such as spirulina
and acai berries.
Drink tea, especially green tea like matcha.
Use age-fighting oils like pomegranate and
carrot seed oil, lavender, geranium, and myrrh.
Follow a Blues Zones diet.
Big thing there, eat real food.
Use certain supplements like we’ve talked
about, a protein powder that comes from bone
broth, ashwagandha, omega-3 fats, a multivitamin,
and an organic super greens powder.
Exercise and just move daily.
Try out some additional mushrooms like reishi,
cordyceps, shiitake, chaga.
And practice intermittent fasting.
These are all ways that have been scientifically
and medically proven to slow the aging process,
help you look younger.
