LITTLE ROCK, Ark., Oct. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Nutrition and physical activity play key roles in staying young, keeping healthy and enjoying life. That's the message of the newly released The Science of Staying Young: The BeneVia Advantage by John E. Morley, M.D. and Sheri R. Colberg, Ph.D., from HealthSpan Solutions, LLC.

The Science of Staying Young: The BeneVia Advantage reveals the key factors for looking and feeling young - fish, alcohol, proteins (especially leucine), and exercise.

The book is available exclusively at and through BeneVia promotions.

The new version of the original The Science of Staying Young also incorporates information about the importance of key nutrients in staying young. As co-author of the book Dr. John Morley felt strongly that getting the right blend of nutrients - especially the key nutrient and protein blends in BeneVia® adult nutrition drinks - keeps consumers young by addressing the health conditions that most frequently arise, such as strength, energy, cardiovascular health and memory function.

"BeneVia® is a nutrition product whose time has come," said Morley. "I have long been an advocate for nutrition as a way to combat the conditions associated with aging. Until now, there hasn't been a product that brings the benefits of convenience, great taste and optimal nutrition in one package."

Combining Morley's research on aging, nutrition, memory, and disease management with Dr. Sheri Colberg's expertise in exercise science and sports nutrition, this comprehensive guide breaks everything down into ten simple steps for maintaining an optimal quality of life and preventing the unwanted side effects of getting older - such as weight gain, excessive weight or muscle loss, mental decline, deteriorating sex drive, osteoporosis, and more.

"We're thrilled that Drs. Morley and Colberg are joining BeneVia® to help Americans stay healthy, active and young," said HealthSpan CEO John Troup. "Together, BeneVia®, exercise and the guidance of The Science of Staying Young give older adults the nutrients, information and motivation they need."
