Stop everything you’re doing right now and listen to this incredible new finding: Eating cheese can help you live longer. That’s right, cheese.
Pizza, mac and cheese, grilled cheese, cheesecake – you might gain a few pounds, but who cares when the ooey gooey goodness can give you a longer life? According to a study published in Natural Medicine, European researchers discovered that spermidine, a compound found in aged cheese, not only can make you live long and prosper, it can make you less likely to suffer from heart failure or high blood pressure.
In a study that involved 800 Italians, those who reported a high intake of spermidine actually had a 40 percent lower risk of heart failure and other cardiovascular diseases. And in another study conducted in 2015, cheese lovers were found to have higher butyrate levels, essentially meaning they had higher metabolisms and reduced obesity.
So what are you waiting for? Grab your friends, a cheese board, and start living the life you’ve always dreamed of.
