Jane Seymour shares her longevity secrets

Jane Seymour is known for her roles as a Bond girl, a doctor on the new frontier and even a ‘wedding crasher.’ But the award-winning actress is also an accomplished artist, philanthropist and proud mother. She recently sat down with Dr. Manny Alvarez, senior managing health editor of FoxNews.com to talk about how staying physically and emotionally fit has helped her maintain a successful career for more than 45 years.

Even at 63 years old, Seymour said she always finds the time to exercise.

“I do everything in moderation,” she said. “I work out at least three times a week, I do a combination of light weights, Pilates and
gyrotonics. So I’ve always got every part of my body working.”

 

How standing might be the best anti-aging technique

The best anti-aging technique could be standing up, scientists believe, after discovering that spending more time on two feet protects DNA.  A study found that too much sitting down shortens telomeres, the protective caps which sit at the end of chromosomes.  Short telomeres have been linked to premature aging, disease and early death.  So spending less time on the sofa could help people live longer by preventing their DNA from aging.
