The breadth of emerging Longevity science is astounding. New research papers are emerging almost every day and multiple major discoveries are made every month. In order to live our best and longest lives, we need to be well informed on as many facets of longevity as possible. For us, supplements are just a small (but important) part of this. Living the longest, healthiest life is about eating right, sleeping right, moving right, breathing right, and thinking right. For this reason, we should read across as many of these topics as our time allows.
We've rounded up the top 25 books on the subjects of life extension, longevity diets, biohacking, longevity research, and the economics of living long and fulfilling lives.

Title: Super Human: The Bulletproof Plan to Age Backward and Maybe Even Live Forever
Author/s: Dave Asprey
Year Published: 2019
From the creator of Bulletproof coffee and the bestselling author of Head Strong and The Bulletproof Diet comes a plan to bypass plateaus and ‘up’ your game at every age.
Dave Asprey suffered countless symptoms of ageing as a young man, which sparked a lifelong burning desire to grow younger with each birthday. For more than twenty years, he has been on a quest to find innovative, science-backed methods to upgrade human biology and redefine the limits of the mind, body, and spirit. The results speak for themselves. Now in his forties, Dave is smarter, happier, and more fit and successful than ever before.
In Super Human, he shows how this is level of health and performance possible for all of us. While we assume we will peak in middle age and then decline, Asprey’s research reveals there is another way. It is possible to make changes on the sub-cellular level to dramatically extend life span. And the tools to live longer also give you more energy and brainpower right now.
The answers lie in Dave’s Seven Pillars of Ageing that contribute to degeneration and disease while diminishing your performance in the moment. Using simple interventions – like diet, sleep, light, exercise, and little-known but powerful hacks from ozone therapy to proper jaw alignment, you can decelerate cellular ageing and supercharge your body’s ability to heal and rejuvenate.
A self-proclaimed human guinea pig, Asprey arms readers with practical advice to maximize their lives at every age with his signature mix of science-geek wonder, candour, and enthusiasm. Getting older no longer has to mean decline. Now it’s an opportunity to become Super Human.

Title: Ending Aging
Author/s: Aubrey de Grey & Michael Rae
Year Published: 2008
Pitting himself against the entire scientific establishment, cutting-edge Cambridge University researcher Aubrey de Grey argues that many of us can live up to 1,000 healthy years. In ENDING AGING, Dr. de Grey and his research assistant Michael Rae describe the details of this biotechnology. They explain that the aging of the human body, just like the aging of man-made machines, results from an accumulation of various types of damage. As with man-made machines, this damage can periodically be repaired, leading to indefinite extension of the machine s fully functional lifetime, just as is routinely done with classic cars. We already know what types of damage accumulate in the human body, and we are moving rapidly toward the comprehensive development of technologies to remove that damage. By demystifying aging and its postponement for the non-specialist reader, de Grey and Rae systematically dismantle the fatalist presumption that aging will forever defeat the efforts of medical science.

Title: Metabolic Autophagy: Practice Intermittent Fasting and Resistance Training to Build Muscle and Promote Longevity: 1 (Metabolic Autophagy Diet)
Author/s: Siim Land
Year Published: 2019
Intermittent Fasting for Longevity and Performance
Your cells are constantly monitoring the nutrient status of the cells to determine whether or not to conserve energy or to promote growth. **One of the few known ways of increasing lifespan in almost all species is caloric restriction and energy deprivation.** This triggers many metabolic pathways and processes that make the organism more adaptable to environmental stressors and thus live longer. **The metabolism has two sub-categories or sub-processes called anabolism and catabolism. ** * Anabolism, meaning ‘upward’ in Greek, describes the synthesis of biological molecules to build up new physical matter in the body. * Catabolism, meaning ‘downward’ in Greek, describes the breaking down of biological molecules to release energy. This can apply to the breakdown of bodily tissue as well as the digestion of food that then gets assimilated into the body through anabolic processes. In addition to ’Metabolic’, you can also find another word in the title - ’Autophagy’, which translates from Ancient Greek into ’self-devouring’ or ’eating of self’. This is central to the main practice of this book. By maintaining a balance between anabolism and catabolism, you can effectively extend your lifespan. The process of autophagy entails your healthy cells devouring the old, worn-out, weak ones and converting them back into energy. It’s literally your body eating itself and using that to maintain homeostasis. There are many longevity-boosting benefits to this as illustrated in virtually all other species. This book is a collection of guidelines about the principles of the anabolic-catabolic cycles in regards to nutrition and exercise. It’s definitely not a panacea – a solution or remedy for all conditions and circumstances. Instead, it’s a very specific protocol that’s not supposed to apply for all situations.

Title: The Longevity Paradox: How to Die Young at a Ripe Old Age: 4 (Plant Paradox)
Author/s: Dr. Steven R Gundry
Year Published: 2019
From the moment we are born, our cells begin to age. But aging does not have to mean decline. World-renowned surgeon Dr. Steven Gundry has been treating mature patients for most of his career. He knows that everyone thinks they want to live forever, until they hit middle age and witness the suffering of their parents and even their peers. So how do we solve the paradox of wanting to live to a ripe old age--but enjoy the benefits of youth?
This groundbreaking book holds the answer. Working with thousands of patients, Dr. Gundry has discovered that the "diseases of aging" we most fear are not simply a function of age; rather, they are a byproduct of the way we have lived over the decades. In The Longevity Paradox, he maps out a new approach to aging well--one that is based on supporting the health of the "oldest" parts of us: the microorganisms that live within our bodies.
Our gut bugs--the bacteria that make up the microbiome--largely determine our health over the years. From diseases like cancer and Alzheimer's to common ailments like arthritis to our weight and the appearance of our skin, these bugs are in the driver's seat, controlling our quality of life as we age.
The good news is, it's never too late to support these microbes and give them what they need to help them--and you--thrive. In The Longevity Paradox, Dr. Gundry outlines a nutrition and lifestyle plan to support gut health and live well for decades to come. A progressive take on the new science of aging, The Longevity Paradox offers an action plan to prevent and reverse disease as well as simple hacks to help anyone look and feel younger and more vital.
Title: Mitochondria and the Future of Medicine: The Key to Understanding Disease, Chronic Illness, Aging, and Life Itself
Author/s: Dr Lee Know
Year Published: 2018
Dr. Lee Know does a brilliant job shedding light on this once ignored organelle and shows us how to care for our most important metabolic system. Dr. Nasha Winters, co-author of The Metabolic Approach to Cancer
From infertility to aging to cancer and neurological disease, Dr. Lee Know will teach you that mitochondria play a central role in much that we care about in health and disease. Stephanie Seneff, senior research scientist, MIT
Why do we age? Why does cancer develop? What's the connection between heart failure and Alzheimer's disease or infertility and hearing loss? Can we extend lifespan and if so, how? What is the Exercise Paradox? Why do antioxidant supplements sometimes do more harm than good? Many will be amazed to learn that all these questions, and many more, can be answered by a single point of discussion: mitochondria and bioenergetics.
In Mitochondria and the Future of Medicine, Naturopathic Doctor Lee Know tells the epic story of mitochondria, the widely misunderstood and often-overlooked powerhouses of our cells. The legendary saga began over two billion years ago, when one bacterium entered another without being digested which would evolve to create the first mitochondrion. Since then, for life to exist beyond single-celled bacteria, it's the mitochondria that have been responsible for this life-giving energy. By understanding how our mitochondria work, in fact, it is possible to add years to our lives, and life to our years.
Current research, however, has revealed a dark side: many seemingly disconnected degenerative diseases have tangled roots in dysfunctional mitochondria. However, modern research has also endowed us with the knowledge on how to optimise its function, which is of critical importance to our health and longevity. Lee Know offers cutting-edge information on supplementation and lifestyle changes for mitochondrial optimisation, such as:
Ketogenic dietary therapy
Mitochondria and the Future of Medicine is an invaluable resource for practitioners interested in mitochondrial medicine and the true roots of chronic illness and disease, as well as anyone interested in improving their health.
Title: Delay Ageing: Healthy to 100
Author/s: Colin Rose
Year Published: 2020
What if getting older didn’t mean getting ill?
Most people accept that growing older means suffering illness – less energy, a risk of cardiovascular disease, brain disorders, cancer, aching joints and increasing frailty.
Most people shrug and say: “It’s just the way life is”.
Now we know that most people are wrong.
Researchers on ageing, based in the world’s leading universities and medical schools, confirm that we are now entering an unprecedented era for healthy ageing. One that promises significant increases in human health span – by preventing, delaying or in some cases even reversing, the drivers of ageing.
Author Colin Rose is a Senior Associate of the Royal Society of Medicine and a Fellow of The Royal Society of Arts who has written on health, nutrition and science for over 30 years.
Delay Ageing, written for a general audience, reveals and explains the latest research including:
•The 10 fundamental causes of ageing and how each one can be countered.
•How to turn on genes that repair damaged DNA.
•How immune systems can be strengthened to fight disease – whatever your age.
•How to protect your brain as you get older.
•How to lower both blood pressure and blood sugar levels – key threats to longevity.
•How your microbiome affects ageing – and how to ensure a healthy gut.
•How to disconnect biological from chronological ageing.
Ageing is essentially the accumulation of damage – damage to cells, to mitochondria, to DNA, to stem cells, to essential communication between cells - including brain cells - and to the immune system.
When we are younger, that damage still occurs, but our repair mechanisms are good enough to restore us to health. But as we age those repair mechanisms begin to falter.
Delay Ageing shows how you can boost your natural repair mechanisms - and proves that you can slow the rate at which you age. And, therefore, cut your risk of ‘age-related’ illness - to extend the years when you live physically fit, mentally sharp, and happily active.
Delay Ageing culminates in eight practical age-delaying actions that can easily be incorporated into any lifestyle. They are natural, non-drug, solutions you can start tomorrow. An inspiring blue-print on how to live better, longer.

The internationally renowned, clinically tested, revolutionary diet program to lose weight, fight disease, and live a longer, healthier life.
Can what you eat determine how long, and how well, you live? The clinically proven answer is yes, and The Longevity Diet is easier to follow than you'd think. The culmination of 25 years of research on aging, nutrition, and disease across the globe, this unique program lays out a simple solution to living to a healthy old age through nutrition. The key is combining the healthy everyday eating plan the book outlines, with the scientifically engineered fasting-mimicking diet, or FMD; the FMD, done just 3-4 times a year, does away with the misery and starvation most of us experience while fasting, allowing you to reap all the beneficial health effects of a restrictive diet, while avoiding negative stressors, like low energy and sleeplessness. Valter Longo, director of the Longevity Institute at USC and the Program on Longevity and Cancer at IFOM in Milan, designed the FMD after making a series of remarkable discoveries in mice, then in humans, indicating that specific diets can activate stem cells and promote regeneration and rejuvenation in multiple organs to significantly reduce risk for diabetes, cancer, Alzheimer's, and heart disease. Longo's simple pescatarian daily eating plan and the periodic fasting-mimicking techniques can both yield impressive results. Low in proteins and sugars and rich in healthy fats and plant-based foods, The Longevity Diet is proven to help you:
- Lose weight and reduce abdominal fat
- Extend your healthy lifespan with simple everyday changes
- Prevent age-related muscle and bone loss
- Build your resistance to diabetes, cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer's and cancer
Longo's healthy, life span-extending program is based on an easy-to-adopt pescatarian plan along with the fasting-mimicking diet no more than 4 times a year, just 5 days at a time. Including 30 easy recipes for an everyday diet based on Longo's five pillars of longevity, The Longevity Diet is the key to living a longer, healthier, more fulfilled life.

Title: The Telomere Effect: A Revolutionary Approach to Living Younger, Healthier, Longer
Author/s: Dr. Elissa Epel & Elizabeth Blackburn
Year Published: 2018
One of the Best 'Brainy' Books of This Decade - The Guardian
A ground breaking book on the history of Telomeres offering fresh advice on how to slow down aging and lengthen life. Nobel prize winning Doctor Elizabeth Blackburn and leading health psychologist Dr Elissa Epel have discovered biological markers called Telomeres which can help to understand how healthy our cells are and what we can do to improve them.
The book specifically looks ideas including; how biological age is not chronological age; a biological basis for the mind-body connection, how sleep and diet can affect telomeres and shockingly how mothers who are highly stressed during pregnancy have children with shorter telomeres. It also offers tools and advice on how to determine cellular age and telomere health.
Doctor Elizabeth Blackburn was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 2009 for her discovery of telomeres and their role in the ageing process and has previously been named in TIME magazine's 100 Most Influential People.
Dr. Elissa Epel is a leading health psychologist who has conducted pioneering research uncovering the psychobiological mechanisms related to how stress ages us and compromises our health-from emotional eating to unhealthy storage of abdominal fat to telomere shortening.
