Publisher's Summary

A New York Times bestselling author and cutting-edge health expert shares her nutrition-based plan for healthy, vibrant longevity.

Welcome to a radical new view of aging—one that defies conventional wisdom and redefines the aging process with resilience, vitality and grace. You’ll discover the most advanced program that staves off the effects of aging, which includes how to release a lifetime of accumulated toxins and deficiencies—and how to correct and reverse their effects with targeted foods, critical lifestyle tweaks, peptides and signaling molecules for cellular regeneration.

With her trademark no-nonsense style, Ann Louise Gittleman champions a paradigm shift in which your biology is not your biography. By utilizing epigenetics to slow and reverse many of the most worrisome aging conditions, you can preserve your “youth span” and enhance your immunity, heart, brain, muscles, joints, skin, and hair. You can even revitalize your sex drive!

Based on decades of experience and research in breakthrough age-defying and restorative medicine, Radical Longevity will forever change what you think you know about aging. Inside you’ll discover: 

  • The most essential vitamins, minerals and hormones to reclaim youthful immunity 
  • The transformative Radical Longevity Power Plan and 5-Day Radical Reset to soothe the gut and revitalize the liver
  • How to manipulate your metabolism
  • The Cinderella mineral to help prevent memory loss and reverse Alzheimer’s
  • How to make your body produce up to fifty percent more “Youth Defying Stem Cells” 
  • The #1 brain-aging hazard hiding in your home, and how to activate your best self-defense
  • The unexpected “forbidden” food that makes your skin, joints, eyes, arteries, and brain feel years younger and much more…

Radical Longevity casts a big and bold new vision of aging that will give you freedom from accepting the limitations that growing older once meant. Look more youthful, feel more agile, and think more clearly as you enter the radical new era of healthy aging!

Fear mongering

This woman has written a compendium of everything you should fear in your daily life. I was tired of listening to it after the first few chapters. Takes the joy out of life. She might as well have recommended you move to a desert island as everything in modern day life is toxic, poisonous. Spend your time listening to something else.

Want distress? Come on down .

If the information had been supplied as if all reading are intelligent, it would’ve been great. I have a science and nutrition background. I can tell you the list of never ending questions would’ve decompensated any client I knew at one time.
Yup. I agree with another viewer - FEAR MONGERING.

IT ALL SOUNDED FRENETIC.

Thorough for optimum health

Love the fact that all aspects of health for aging gracefully and more healthy are addressed. I can choose for myself which ones to implement. It is radical and a lot of people will have to pick one or two items at a time to implement. I have read her Radical Metabolism book also and am a disciple of Dr Wallach so am not new to nutrition and fasting. This book goes beyond nutrition and I love it. Thank you Ann for all the modern research in one encyclopedia.

Doesn’t address real world solutions.

This book is horrible. It doesn’t address real world solutions for slowing or stopping aging. It gives you all the things that cause damage to your body and then suggest not using cell phones or wifi. Drink water but not bottled or tap water. It says nothing about Biotechnology and how fixing damaged DNA can stop the aging process. We can not live in the 21st century and avoid cell damage. We have to think in terms of fixing cell damage and DNA, this book has little in it about that.

Great book

Has a lot of information and will be re reading for all the recommendations. I’ve been biohacking for 11 months and she has a lot of information that is helpful.

80-percent fluff.

I have followed stuff like this for a long time. The biggest majority of doctor visits for me have been for Chronic Fatigue like symptoms. I've just about done it all to not be so tired that I could barely function.

Note that doing a lot of stuff she recommends helped me very little. The thing that has helped me the most was going "low carb"* and getting religious about exercising. I have now worked out about an hour a day, almost every single day for going on a decade. I have logged thousands of miles of running, biking, rowing (Concept2) and walking. I lost weight and I feel a lot better. Not perfect, but way better.

When I was following advice like hers, not much of it helped at all.

Pretty much she lost me at the section on 5G. When she talks about how there will be an access point for every twelve houses, or something like that, I want to point out that this is very expensive and none of the carriers in the US are doing it. The mmWave 5G that is deployed is mostly at football stadiums or places like that where it makes sense to spend the money.

Outside of that, most of the 5g being deployed in the US is not that far off from normal cell bands. T-Mobile is using 2.5 gig, which is very close to plain ol' 2.4 wifi. Note that a microwave also used 2.4 gig, which is why turning a microwave on will sometime interfere with your wifi.

Look, I worked in a commercial radio shop for over a decade. There is no point I want to just warm up using some radio waves, but doing all the stuff she recommends did zero for me. I still felt the same.

I would recommend throwing this book away. Get a subscription to Audible and listen to books while going for a run or riding your bike. This actually made me feel better.

I try and eat as simple as possible. No fried foods and as few ingredients as I can get away with. But if someone isn't eating any processed foods, I'll either show you a rich person...or a liar.

Over the years I have gone from taking a bunch of supplements, to just a few. Vitamin D, magnesium, and turmeric is all I take now. Taking a good number of things she recommended only helped me lose money, not feel better.

The 80-20 rule states that 20 percent of your actions -- the vital few -- will produce the majority of your results. With a long history of trying everything, for me personally, this book falls mostly in the 80 percent area.

I'm kind of surprised this book was even an Audible Daily Deal. A lot of questionable material in it. Although I'll admit, there was a time I would have fallen for some it. You live and you learn...

* And low carb for me is only somewhere around 200 grams of carbs a day. That's about half of what the average American gets. But someone hardcore would be aghast at that amount of carbs. Basically I don't eat any bread whatsoever. But if I cut my carbs too low, I don't get enough fiber. So get this, I went with a reasonable amount of carbs. I know, that's hard to believe.

Worst self help book ever!

This book is unedited, horribly repetitious, and a constant ad for the author’s supplement company. If you took everything she recommends you would be spending your longer life taking a million supplements.
Don’t waist your time and money!!!!!

Very detailed!

You can tell the author is passionate about the subject matter, but the "fear" factor is well over the top.
I did gleam information that I will act on.
