Dr. Hyman Discusses Boosting Longevity on the Dr. Oz Show

EVERYONE WANTS TO LIVE A LONG TIME. What many don’t realize is that we all have the power to make choices that will help us live a long and healthy life. Boosting longevity and being fit and vibrant at any age is a real possibility for all of us.

In my recent appearance on The Dr. Oz Show I gave a simple tip on how you can boost longevity by taking a special supplement–glucomannan–to support healthy blood sugar levels.

This show was part of an ongoing series in which Dr. Oz is recruiting doctors, including myself, to help Jay get healthy and extend his life. This series of shows provides a powerful reminder to all of us how important getting and staying healthy for life is. I encourage all of you to watch the entire series:

And stay tuned for further updates as we follow and support Jay on his journey to lifelong, vibrant health.

For more information on glucomannan see my blog The Super Fiber that Controls Your Appetite and Blood Sugar.
