Description

Don’t just live longer—live better!

Everyone wants to feel fitter, sexier, more energetic, more productive, and younger—but what if the solutions were already here? What if there were already ways to ease the negative effects of aging and prevent diabetes, heart disease, cancer, Parkinson’s disease, and Alzheimer’s disease from ever starting? What if we could translate all the exotic science and research breakthroughs of today into a practical plan that could help us win the war on aging? Here’s the truth: We can.

The Fountain is a sensible, comprehensive, and scientifically based anti-aging guide packed with essential information. With actionable advice, biting humor, and savvy insight, Dr. Rocco Monto, a top national health expert and board-certified orthopedic surgeon, explains why we age so poorly now and how the latest breakthroughs in science and medicine can help change this. Focusing on the four pillars of science, diet, exercise, and medicine, Dr. Monto’s findings interlace the clinical and the cultural and suggest that simple choices provide profound results.

Debunking long-held diet and fitness myths while highlighting safe, effective therapies backed by cutting-edge research, Dr. Monto includes the diet, supplements, exercise, mental training, and new medications to help us all live longer, happier, healthier, and more productive lives. Much more than a compilation of longevity research, The Fountain is an essential toolkit that will redesign lifestyles and forever transform the way we look at aging.

As the book blends fascinating stories with new research findings, illustrations, infographics, and exclusive interviews, it also educates you on how aging really works and provides practical ways to hack the system.
