Many 100-year-olds come from the southern Swedish town of Vittsjö. Niklas goes to see how the sisters Gunvor, 104, and Britta, 94, live. He also meets a young couple who have chosen an old-fashioned lifestyle.

In this food and lifestyle documentary series, internationally renowned chef Niklas Ekstedt explores the secret of living past the age of 100. He’s travelling to six of the world’s ‘blue zones’ – regions such as Sardinia, Costa Rica, and Okinawa in Japan, where unusually high numbers of people reach an advanced age – in a quest to find the recipe for a long and healthy life. Along the way, he befriends locals and gets to know them, joining in with their daily routines and discussing their approaches to life, food, and ageing. He also reveals different ways of living. For example, in Ikaria, Greece, he discovers a town which keeps the stress levels down by not keeping track of time. And, as you would expect from a leading chef, he also can’t resist sampling some of the local specialties in every place he visits.

It seems like what all these places have in common is community. They all eat different types of food that supposedly make you live longer but none of these foods seem to be the same. But they all have groups of people that come together and socialize. It seems like this is truly the reason why they live so long.

All series are great. For me the biggest factor is that I have to reduce stress and start enjoying my life every day 🙃 find time for friends and not value that much money.

Finally. A Blue/Blue-ish Zone that is NOT in the Mediterranean/subtropics. There needs to be more of these, like in Iceland.

Enjoyed this series immensely! The Bible says, "forget not the assembling of yourselves together."
This seems to be the underlying theme!!

Love this one as it isn't consider a "blue zone" but still has many centenarians and older people living lives which I think is amazing. I have been watching this whole series and sharing it with family to showcase how far we have gone away from true living. To be honest I am very tired of the way I have been living. I was brought up in a big city and while my mom came from a small town and loves the city, I am seeking the opposite. These are also just beautifully done and Niklas has a genuine care and curiousity for each culture and each individual he comes in contact with.

True hearty togetherness of joy is play a STRONG ROLL and of cause the healthy diet as well.
KEEP UP WITH IT SWEDEN.... LOVE EACH OTHER and ENJOY ... there is no time for 'hacking' on each other as we all feel the same and the end of the day.

Wonderful Niklas! Hej Hej! I just viewed your Fantastic videos & would like to thank you for explaining the Blue Zones and the long life of these amazing people on this great planet.
I look forward to seeing more of your awesome work and hope to see you at 105 if I live that long, lol! My mom is 92, born in Southern Italy, lives here in US, she is still bright eyed and bushy tailed, lifestyle similar to those in Sardinia minus the goats.
Many Blessings to you, Love & Light ... thank you N!

WHO defines healthy ageing as “the process of developing and maintaining the functional ability that enables wellbeing in older age.” Functional ability is about having the capabilities that enable all people to be and do what they have reason to value.

My 90 year old grandma died about 15 days ago. She had started forgetting the present and kept talking about her family and friends from her childhood for about a month before that. So it's true that the closer you get to death your brain starts bringing up old childhood memories.

I work in a nursing home with ages from 56 to 100. The hundred year old guy is probably the best mentally and physically.

I have a grandmother close to 100 yrs. for the last 5 years she lays in a bed staring at the ceiling, defecates on her self, can't walk, is in dementia 90% of the time, uses the resources of six family members to keep her alive. Her husband died in 1977 quickly and quietly. I drink, smoke, eat what I want because I don't want to be a burden to anyone else just to say I lived to 100.

With all due respect, nobody has the right to take another life. not even if it might make you over 100 years old.💚

I want to live as long as I'm independent. As soon as others have to take care of me, I want to go. Not that it's in my hands anyway!
