Younger: Breakthrough Program to Turn Back the Clock on Aging

At age 44, Dr. Sara Gottfried performed a test of how fast she was aging, and she failed.How would you like to create a lifestyle that helps you look great, feel energized, and slow down the effects of aging?

Dr. Sara Gottfried has the answer. 

At age 44, Dr. Sara received a research opportunity few medical scientists would wish for: She performed a test of how fast she was aging, and she failed.

Dr. Sara discovered she was aging 20 years faster than her chronological years according to her telomeres (the protective caps on chromosomes that deal with aging). Her telomeres needed rescuing, so she dived into the science and created a breakthrough protocol to fix them -- manifested in her book Younger: A Breakthrough Program to Reset Your Genes, Reverse Aging, and Turn Back the Clock 10 Years.

Dr. Sara joins Dr. Friedman to discuss the concept of "lifespan," as well as which lifestyle choices contribute most to internal and external aging.
