The elixir of long life
Blue Zones and the secret of longevity
Living a long life, maybe even an eternal one. That’s the dream of humanity.
From the Tree of Life in the Book of Genesis to the Holy Grail of King Arthur's Round Table to the Philosopher's Stone: The quest for eternal youth has fascinated people since ancient times. What began as myths slowly led to a deeper, scientific examination of the factors for long life. One of the most important studies of the last decade in this field is that of Michel Poulain and Gianni Pes on the so-called Blue Zones. But what are they? Blue Zones are geographical areas where people live longer than in the rest of the world, regions with a particularly high quality of life. One of those areas is South Tyrol. According to Poulain, the secret of longevity lies above all in a slower lifestyle that is reduced to the essentials, and in the perfect harmony of diet, exercise, and air quality. All of them are pillars at Belvita Leading Wellnesshotels Südtirol: Well-feeling, Beauty, Fitness, and Vitale Cuisine. Uncover the secret of longevity in South Tyrol. Our luxury hotels await you.
