In order to achieve the goal of longevity, the Chinese people have made unremitting efforts, ranging from the search for longevity recipes by the ancient Qin Shi Huang on the sea to the search for various foods and folk recipes that nourish longevity. Each of us hopes to have enough life expectancy to enjoy a good life. However, many studies and our own observations can show that men generally have shorter lifespans than women, so how can men extend their lifespan to achieve the goal of longevity? Let's take a look at our eight longevity suggestions!
Longevity Secret Collection 1: Drink half a glass of red wine every day
Men tend to be assertive, competitive, and adventurous, with higher physiological characteristics and social pressure than women with high basal metabolism. In addition, the male sex chromosome is XY, and the immune regulatory genes present on the X chromosome are less than those of the female sex chromosome XX. The repair and compensation function is also worse than that of the female sex chromosome, so the lifespan is shorter than that of the female.
According to a research report, drinking about half a glass of dry red wine per day can prolong men's life expectancy by 5 years compared to non drinkers, while reducing the risk of heart disease.
The research team analyzed the lives and drinking habits of 1373 men born between 1900 and 1920 and living between 1960 and 2000. The results showed that men who drank 20 grams of different alcohol per day had a two-year longer lifespan than men who did not drink; Men who drank less than half a glass of wine per day lived two and a half years longer than men who drank beer and other alcoholic beverages every day. The grape skins of red wine contain components that can reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, and red wine contains lower levels of prin (a substance that can increase the body's uric acid) than other wines. Red wine can also prevent arteriosclerosis and dementia.
Longevity Secret Collection 2: Chewing with Small Bits
Chewing food in small bites is considered by many men to be a "motherly" behavior, but in fact, it has great health benefits and helps extend men's lifespan. The eating habits of men are often wolfing down or overeating, so the incidence rate of stomach disease in men is 6.2 times higher than that in women on average. And men generally eat more fatty and protein foods than women, which has proven to be an important reason for developing rectal cancer and shortening life expectancy.
