Scientific breakthroughs are redefining how we think about aging and more than ever, there is hope that we can overcome our greatest enemy – the process of biological decline. How to Stay Young investigates the latest research around the world that could put the brakes on the aging process.

In Germany we learn about the exercise that holds off aging the best; in the U.S. we find out about the unexpected diet that can add years to our lives. And in Ecuador we meet a 17-year-old with a rare syndrome who could hold the key to curing aging – incredibly, he will never grow old like the rest of us.

How to Stay Young is a global quest to uncover the secrets of how we grow, develop and renew, challenging everything we believe about getting old.
