Product description


"The Longevity Paradox offers a fresh perspective on an existential question: how can we live a long life and grow old while still enjoying the physical and mental qualities of being young? What Dr. Gundry shows us is not only that it's possible to thrive as we age, but that the power to do it lies in our own hands (or, more accurately, our guts). It's an essential read for anybody who's growing older - which is to say, everybody."--Arianna Huffington, Founder & CEO, Thrive

"The Longevity Paradox is a well-written, entertaining tour of your generally friendly neighborhood microbiome that will help you learn to live younger and longer."-- Dr. Oz

"We're often told that future scientific research will provide an elixir that will not only allow us to live longer, but live healthier as well. But as Dr. Gundry deftly reveals in The Longevity Paradox, we have those tools in hand, right now, that can open the door to a longer and healthier life experience. This highly empowering text leverages leading-edge research and provides a user-friendly interface enhancing and extending our precious existence."--David Perlmutter, MD, author of New York Times bestseller Grain Brain and Brain Maker

"In his latest, readers will find Dr. Gundry's friendly demeanor, sound advice, and compassionate motivational techniques unchanged as he takes a closer look at the aging process and examines a variety of ways to mitigate the damage done to the body across a lifetime. A proactive, manageable, and practical approach to stemming the aging tide."--Kirkus Reviews

"Dr. Gundry has already helped many of the millions of people who are suffering from inflammatory disorders. Now, in The Longevity Paradox, he shows readers how to fend off the inflammation that contributes to disease and decline with age."--Valter Longo, PhD, Director of the Longevity Institute, USC, and bestselling author of The Longevity Diet

"In The Longevity Paradox, Dr. Steven Gundry translates the complex science of aging into a clear, actionable plan. If you want to live longer and healthier, this is the best book on the subject."--Dale Bredesen, MD, New York Times bestselling author of The End of Alzheimer's

From the Back Cover

World-renowned cardiac surgeon Steven Gundry knows that everyone thinks they want to live forever, until they hit middle age and witness the suffering of their parents and even their peers. How do we solve the paradox of wanting to live a long life--while continuing to enjoy the benefits of youth?

This groundbreaking book holds the answer. In The Longevity Paradox, Dr. Gundry maps out a new approach to aging that is based on supporting the health of the "oldest" parts of us: the microorganisms that live within our bodies. These bugs play a significant role in preventing diseases like cancer, Alzheimer's, obesity, and arthritis. The good news is, it's never too late to give your microbes what they need so that they--and you--can thrive.

The Longevity Paradox offers fresh insight on everything from nutrition and product choices to mental health to exercise, arming readers with the secrets to living a happy, healthy, long and vital life.
