Iceland’s Secret for “Super Human” Health
They have the best average life expectancy in the entire world… clocking in at over 82 years. They are at much lower risk of nasty ailments like heart disease, the #1 killer of Americans.
In fact, the 2015 Global Burden of Disease Study ranked Iceland the #1 Healthiest country in the world based on 33 different health-related indicators
Guess where the United States landed on that list? All the way down at #36.
But don’t worry…because the U.S. managed to squeak out a #1 ranking of their own…
#1 for ischemic heart disease DEATHS. And this was a landslide victory…
Iceland was sitting pretty at #40 on this list.
So what’s their secret?
For the longest time, most experts shared the same answer: Fish.
Icelanders eat a lot of fish, and fish are known to be abundant in omega 3 fatty acids. Omega 3’s have long been promoted by the medical community for their benefits in heart health.
Turns out this was only the tip of the iceberg…
Iceland is known for its volcanic activity. And every time there is an eruption, tons and tons of volcanic ash are spewed from deep within the core of the earth.
This ash has blanketed the entire island for years.
And here’s the kicker…this ash is rich in powerful nutrients, in particular sulfur and selenium. These two compounds are potent antioxidants…but it doesn’t stop there. These elements team up and act as dynamic “activators” for another Super Nutrient…
This other miraculous molecule has been hailed as “The Mother of ALL Antioxidants”
It has been shown to reverse disease progression and defy the aging process…
Its benefits have been observed with a wide range of diseases, including…
- Heart disease
- …and the list goes on…
But now, not only Icelanders, but everyone can get access to this powerful human nutrient.
