We, at HealthyLongveity.guide, are delighted to announce that our first webinar directed towards nutritionists has been launched. The meeting hosted Jiří Kaloč, a   nutritionist with a wealth of experience, as its main speaker. In the webinar, Jiří discussed nutrition's impact on longevity and lifespan.
During the webinar, Jiří touched upon the role of nutritionists in promoting the longevity of their clients. He highlighted that proper nutrition could lower the risk of diseases and prolong the lifespan. In addition, he mentioned that the collaboration between nutritionists and their client extends for long periods of time. Regarding the conditions affected by nutrition, Jiří mentioned that having consultation sessions impacts conditions like obesity, type 2 diabetes (T2DM), cardiovascular disorders (CVD), and nutritional deficiencies.  


During the session, Jiří illustrated results from current literature demonstrating the impact nutrition has on lowering low-density lipoprotein (LDL)  and levels of triglycerides, both of which impact CVD outcomes (1). He emphasized the beneficial effects that proper nutrition has in terms of lowering body mass index and fasting blood glucose, reflecting positively on T2DM. He also demonstrated how lifestyle modifications could impact diabetic patients, where results he illustrated showed that lifestyle changes have a similar effect to pharmacological interventions. Regarding nutritional deficiencies, Jiří shed light on how the United States population across different age groups lack proper nutrition that provides many essential vitamins and minerals that play a role in health and disease (2).


Jiří followed that discussion by mentioning factors that play a role in the lifespan of individuals, like telomere length and mitochondrial health. He touched upon the factors that influence the said elements (3). He discussed tracking of relevant markers like body weight and composition and mentioned aging as a treatable disease. Jiří then discussed approaches applied in clinical studies, like caloric restriction and intermittent fasting, and how they impacted longevity based on the results of these studies (4-6). Lastly, he elaborated on types of diet patterns and diet types.
This webinar was hosted by our own Olena Mokshyna, Ph.D., and Ehab Naim, MBA. They are well-versed in various aspects of scientific research and come from diverse backgrounds but share a common interest in researching aging and longevity.
Our audience was able to interact with Jiří through a series of Q&As, where he addressed all the questions and provided practical answers to all the inquiries. This short article barely scratches the surface of what Jiří discussed, so we encourage you to view the whole webinar by following the link to the recording.
