The Longevity Paradox: How to Die Young at a Ripe Old Age by Dr. Steven Gundry

The Longevity Paradox (2019) looks at three of the most crucial factors behind aging well: our gut bacteria, our gut walls and our mitochondria. By helping us to understand the roles these factors play in our health, and by showing us some powerful strategies we can adopt to support them, the author points us toward long and healthy lives.

  • Young people wanting to avoid the problems that often accompany aging  
  • Older people wanting to escape those problems
  • Anyone interested in alternative medical views
