Grip Strength, Creatine, Circadian Rhythm & Neck Posture for Longevity
Live Longer Weekly #5
Hi everyone, hope you had a good summer!
Today’s Live Longer Weekly post discusses the importance of grip strength, maintaining your circadian rhythm, good & bad neck postures, and supplementing with creatine.
This post is part of my series Live Longer Weekly, where I curate actionable longevity tips from some of the best longevity experts in the world - Peter Attia, Rhonda Patrick, Andrew Huberman, Bryan Johnson and so on.
Let's unite in improving our health day by day, week by week.
#1 Peter Attia on the association between grip strength, dementia & longevity
“People with the highest grip strength have a 70% lower chance of getting and dying from dementia..Grip strength is not about grip strength. It’s a proxy for total body strength, it’s a proxy for muscle mass, it’s a proxy for what you had to do to get that grip strenght. What do you have to do to develop such insane grip strength? You’ve been carrying very heavy things, you’ve been lifting very heavy things.”

#2 Rhonda Patrick on the importance of maintaining your circadian rhythm
“Over the years, speaking with circadian biologist Dr. Satchin Panda has driven home for me that there is a special value on maintaining an essentially orderly rhythm of living. Meaning, there is a special health value for: 1) Generally eating at the same time on most days 2) Going to bed at the same time on most days
A recent study showed that a 90-minute difference in sleep timing, called “social jetlag,” can alter the abundance of six different microbiota in the gut.”
