The Longevity Code
by Kris Verburgh MD; hardcover, 320pp. | Item Catalogue Number: 34142
The Longevity Code: We all know that we age – but do you know how, and why? And do you wonder what you can do -whatever your age – to slow the process so you can live well, for longer?
This book answers these questions.
Medical doctor and scientist Kris Verburgh illuminates the biological mechanisms that make our bodies susceptible to heart attacks, strokes, dementia, and other ageing-related diseases.
We learn about the role of poorly functioning mitochondria, shortened telomeres, proteins and carbohydrates, and more.
Having explained the processes at work, Dr Verburgh then provides the tools needed to slow them down: his scientifically backed Longevity Staircase. This simple step-by-step method offers better health and a longer life span through nutrition – currently our best defence in the fight against ageing and disease.
With each passing day, advances in biotechnology – once the stuff of science fiction – are emerging as part of the “longevity code.” Dr Verburgh discusses how new types of vaccines, mitochondrial DNA, CRISPR proteins, and stem cells may help us slow and even reverse ageing – now and in the future.
Praise for The Longevity Code:
“Dr Verburgh tackles age-old questions and arrives at some startling conclusions – with practical suggestions for how to slow down our biological clock.”
– Professor Dr David Ludwig, Harvard University
“A brilliant and important book. Kris Verburgh, like no other, is able to represent the complex relationships between nutrition and ageing. Recommended for anyone who wants to know what to eat in order to age as healthily as possible.”

“Informative, fascinating and inspiring . . . Based on current knowledge, The Longevity Code clearly describes how we ourselves can delay the unwelcome symptoms of ageing and presents an extraordinary preview of what the future will bring.”
