Everyone wants to live a long life and drink a hundred and two! With the rapid progress of modern medicine, many people hope that technology can extend human life and live a healthy and happy life. However, a related study in Australia found that the natural secret to longevity is very simple, and that there are differences between men and women, with different secrets. Men need to get enough sleep if they want to live a long life, while women need to eat more foods rich in vitamin B6.
Lack of sleep in men can affect life expectancy
The British “Daily Mail” reported that Monash University in Melbourne, Australia conducted a survey on nutrition and health among 1,865 elderly people to study the effect of human sleep quality and dietary patterns on life expectancy.
The researchers found that regardless of gender, sleep-deprived people had relatively higher incidence and mortality rates of obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and heart artery-related diseases. However, the quality of men’s sleep has a greater effect on life expectancy. Although women also have an effect, their diet has a greater effect.
In addition, the report of the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey) in the United States also proposed that the daily sleep time should be between 6 and 8 hours, which can help reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease . 6 hours, the chance of causing a stroke or heart attack is doubled, and the risk of heart failure is 1.6 times higher.

Vitamin B6 deficiency in women can affect life expectancy
In addition to this factor of sleep, research experts also found that having a “varied diet” is also an important key to long-term health and longevity. Especially in the female population, even if they have good sleep quality, if their diet is irregular and their intake is not balanced, it will also affect the length of life.
The research sample found that the proportion of women who do not sleep well is twice as high as the proportion of men, and at the same time there is also a phenomenon of insufficient intake of vegetables and vitamin B6 nutrition, which has become one of the factors affecting health and life expectancy. According to the average survey results, an unbalanced diet has a greater effect on women’s lifespan than sleep; vegetables rich in vitamin B6 include meat, bananas, nuts, garlic and pistachios.

The researchers conclude that poor sleep quality will indirectly affect the body’s digestive capacity and appetite, and because the body’s fatigue cannot be eliminated, people’s willingness to exercise will also be greatly reduced. Here’ the factors that cause the gradual decline in one’s health.
