As an advisor to the stars, Oz Garcia is an anti-aging expert and a celebrated nutritionist whose techniques have been used the world over. Discussing what individuals can do to try to slow the aging process in their own lives, Garcia told Health Digest, “Sleep is central, [as well as] exercise, being outdoors, [and] becoming familiar with nutrients that seem to suppress telomere damage and damage to DNA.” He specified, “NAD [Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide], Resveratrol, Fisetin, Spermidine, and IV vitamin therapy are all terrific for longevity and anti-aging.”
Following his own difficult health journey with long COVID, Garcia has focused on appreciating his life and learning to live well. As he told us, “I’m going back through a reappraisal of my value systems after this experience.” It’s also inspired his next book in the works, which he teased is more about living a meaningful life as a whole rather than focusing on specifics of bodily recovery or nutrition, though it’s likely he will tie in his anti-aging wisdom as well. “I’d like to learn how to live another 70 years, and some of my studies have ties to Buddhism, Stoicism, neuroscience, and the value of writing and journaling,” he shared.
