If you’ve ever dreamed about living a longer, healthier life (and who hasn’t?), then this episode of The Dr. Gundry Podcast is for you.

My guest is none other than Harvard scientist and world-renowned longevity expert Dr. David Sinclair.

We even discuss the one food secret that all of the world’s longest-living populations share.

Believe me — you’re not going to want to miss this one!
