The only person personally known by me who is over 100 doesn't let things bother him. He always said, "What are you gonna do?" as if to say, if you can't do anything about it, why worry?  He also had a strong spiritual life but didn't appear to be religious, has strong family ties and continued to pursue romantic relationships after his wife passed away.  He ate a lot of fresh citrus (picked right off the trees in some cases) and wrote a book about its health benefits.  Last i heard he was officiating in parades so he is getting out and about.

As for supplements, there have only been short term studies concerning mortality as an outcome.  One, published in the in the American Journal of Epidemiology found a reduction in the risk of mortality over a five year period among those who supplemented with vitamins C and E. Another, published in JAMA, found a 7% reduction in the risk of dying over a 5.7 year average among adults who supplemented with vitamin D. Similar findings have been uncovered for glucosamine and chondroitin, reported in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrtion, and a meta-analysis reported in the same journal revealed a reduction in the risk of mortality over a follow-up period of up to 27 years among those with high vitamin D levels, although the latter is not an analysis of supplementation.  There are plenty of studies that examine blood or serum levels of nutrients rather than supplementation, and many of them have positive results.

The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism reported a lower risk of dying over a three year average period among those who supplemented with calcium and vitamin D. Another study in the journal reported a lower risk of dying over a ten year period among women who supplemented with calcium. A study in Nutrition, Metabolism & Cardiovascular Diseases reported reduced mortality over up to 4.6 years in association with omega 3 fatty acid supplementation.

The above were covered in Life Extension Update and not the result of an exhaustive medline search, so there are others.  If one expands the search to studies that involved individuals with various diseases or conditions, or those that examined blood levels or intake of a nutrient from food, the list expands greatly.

I'm impressed with what I've read about the "over-mineralization" theory of aging and disease...  

Iron accumulation in men results in much higher total iron loading in males compared to females (who lose iron through menstruation), and females live about half a decade longer than males across all countries and cultures.  

Iron restriction mimics calorie restriction in insect and rodent longevity studies...  The Japanese consume more green tea than any other culture (tea inhibits iron absorption), and live longer than about any other major society, despite the fact they also smoke more than about anyone else.  

Elevated iron stores have been associated with heart disease, cancer and Alzheimer's, as well as many other diseases such as metabolic syndrome and diabetes.  Iron is the ultimate pro-oxidant!  

The HEATHeIRON site's "Iron Reduction Therapy" page has a small ocean of studies that support this hypothesis here:
http://www.healtheiron.com/iron-reduction-therapy

Ferritin (blood lab) is the best measure of stored iron, but be aware the upper limits of the normal range are set quite high, as its now considered "normal" to accumulate a lot of iron as we age.  Optimal ferritin is actually around 50, and anything into triple digits is considered to be less than healthy by many who look into the research on iron and health.  

Donating blood a couple times a year should keep iron levels low, though more aggressive donation early on may be required to reduce high levels of stored iron.  

Get thee to a blood bank!

Read The Blue Zones, it can give ideas what centenarians actually do. Eat well, exercise, avoid stress, meditate, pray, have social life and interests. Do your annual tests and maybe at least once make one of those complete test panels and metabolism tests available now from several clinics (e.g. Terry Grossman or equivalent). Have a targeted supplementation program (e.g. I stand with synesthesia and I think IP6 has helped me with iron). Include basics, Vitanin D, PPC, Q10. I would consider PQQ. Try prevent cancer (read LEF and Xandria Williams): here a brand new blood test to avoid colonoscopy.

1). Anti glycation via Metformin , mitochondrial energy optimizer.  
2).  Up regulating NAD via niacin, or better Niacinimide Riboside ( Niagen )
3 ) Ubiquinol w/ PQQ
4). Green tea extract ( EGCG ), and curcumin

To your list, at the very least, I would add K2 (MK-4 and MK-7), Gamma E, and Iodine to boost your Muti. I would add Acetyl-L-carnitine and Lipoic Acid to boost your mitochondria support and Curcumin to help with inflammation. I would also add GLA because you shouldn't take fish oil without GLA and visa-versa. Additionally, I would add PS for the brain and cell membrane support.

I would also work in whey and creatine powders and some sort of night time HGH releaser.


I would drop the calcium unless you have a specific health issue reason for taking it.

I would also consider blood testing to monitor any health issues as they arise. (Hormone levels, CRP, ferritin, homocystine, etc.)

Spices are very beneficial.
I take curcumin, ginger, cayenne pepper, garlic, cinnamon, oregano etc.

Remember your organic greens! 
I make a smoothie every morning with yogurt, greens out of my garden, mv powder, an apple, milk thistle powder...you get the idea!

Keep your immune system active with medicinal mushrooms. 

Powdered seaweed for iodine.

Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Coconut Oil for vascular, skin, hair and eye health.
