While most people assume we will peak when we are young, my new book, SUPER HUMAN: The Bulletproof Plan to Age Backward and Maybe Even Live Forever, reveals there is another way. It is possible to make changes on the sub-cellular level to transform how you look and feel now, get healthier and disease-proofed with every decade, and dramatically extend your lifespan. Said differently, I wrote this book to help you have better sex, develop super brain power, avoid disease and live until 180.

Live better now and live longer later. Get reading.
