Nutrition specifically for longevity - what's your take?
You are addressing your longevity by focusing on mental health. Stress ages you faster than probably most any food.
True. It's all connected though. Stress, inflammation, mental health, gut health, etc. All issues I am struggling with. Still hoping there's ONE cause I can pinpoint, address, and start to improve ALL those things.
i'm not sure about longevity, but for my overall well being i fast almost daily, eat a can of sardines most days (any recommendations for canned oysters), am no stranger to eggs, supplement with D, magnesium, k2, and a food based multi for men. i also walk/bike a lot, sprint a little, and lift myself a few times per week, sleep 6-7+ solid hours a night, learn or try at least one new thing every week...
...i may stray from time to time, but i think mostly i live pretty close to the ten primal laws.
I know this topic's question was centered specifically on what I (YOU) do for longevity, but....
I do not do this, but Art DeVany (Evolutionary Fitness) takes Ultrathione. Ultrathione is a supplement which is supposed to aid with the body's production and use of Glutathione; among a few other things. Art seems to believe in this product wholeheartedly, and I believe his advice should be heard (he is the fittest 70 yr old on the planet and one of the premier diet/fitness experts in Ancestral Health....). Anyway, here is the link to the Ultrathione website: Glutathione science
Apparently strength training causes the cells of the body to be flooded with various growth hormones and other growth-promoting things that tell the body that cells need to live instead of die. So while it might not add years to your life it makes the amount of years spent in decline fewer. So I guess I can add strength training to the list of things I do for longevity.

Did anyone say fermented veggies? I keep forgetting but mean to eat a little bit each day.
I mentioned them. I get a fairly decent amount in my diet.
"The cling and a clang is the metal in my head when I walk. I hear a sort of, this tinging noise - cling clang. The cling clang. So many things happen while walking. The metal in my head clangs and clings as I walk - freaks my balance out. So the natural thought is just clogged up. Totally clogged up. So we need to unplug these dams, and make the the natural flow... It sort of freaks me out. We need to unplug the dams. You cannot stop the natural flow of thought with a cling and a clang..."
Sex, art, strength-training (building muscle), appreciating nature, being active, eating lots of veggies for antioxidants are all good in my experience.

Green tea, bone broth, fish oil, intermittent fasting, lifting heavy things once in a while, going for walks, sleeping 8 hours per night in pitch black....and I have pretty much no stress. I'm also in a loving marriage and we have a great daughter. A loving family has to count for something right?
