Q: Why should someone in their 20s care about anti-aging and longevity?

We had a young prospective client ask this question, unsure of what benefits Afiya would offer especially as a young generally healthy adult.

ChatGPTs response:

It’s never too early to start thinking about anti-aging and longevity. Here are some reasons why someone in their 20s should care:

  1. Prevention is key: Starting early with healthy habits, such as a nutritious diet, regular exercise, and getting enough sleep, can help prevent age-related health issues later in life.
  2. Maximizing your lifespan: By taking care of your body now, you can potentially add more healthy years to your life.
  3. Quality of life: A healthy lifestyle can help improve your quality of life by reducing your risk of developing chronic conditions, such as diabetes, heart disease, and dementia.
  4. Investing in your future: By taking care of your body and mind now, you are investing in your future health and happiness.
  5. Long-term financial implications: Aging and chronic health conditions can be costly, so investing in healthy habits early on can potentially save you money on healthcare costs in the long run.

Ultimately, taking care of yourself now can help you live a longer, healthier, and happier life.

Verdict from our Afiya expert:

Amy, our Director of Wellness has this to say:

6/10— While the advice provided by AI is excellent and correct, the most important reason was missed…and that is that the seeds of chronic disease are sown much earlier than most people believe. Many longevity researchers say that, at least in some ways, aging starts at birth. The arterial fatty streaks that develop into the plaques of heart disease can be found in teens and young adults. Waiting until one turns 50 or beyond to think about their longevity is risky. We at Afiya prefer to act aggressively to lower the risks of the many conditions associated with aging.

Like finances, invest early in your health for later payoff

It’s never too early to set yourself up for a long healthy life. Investment advice media and forums continuously push starting saving and investing as early as possible in order to live comfortably later on and health is no different. Generally as a young adult you’ll have a good baseline to start with and investing now will help you reap the dividends at any age.
