Updated: Apr 19

Professor Luigi Fontana Singapore

With the internet providing access to so many health experts and talking heads, we often get asked ‘who can be trusted, to watch or follow online, even to enjoy?’ The answer is not always obvious, as those in the media spotlight have their own area of expertise, biases, even their own unique style of presentation.

Whether you are part of our Singapore or global community, in this series of posts we present some of the key online health leaders whose media channels we enjoy.

Meet Professor Luigi Fontana; longevity scientist and lifestyle medicine advocate.

A small disclaimer, we do not necessarily endorse or agree everything that our featured personalities nor their guests might say, but we do enjoy the general direction that they take. Please talk to your doctor, or medical practitioner most familiar with your medical history, before implementing any changes in diet, exercise or lifestyle, especially if you are under treatment.

Your health and longevity start with you! Prioritising your own self-care is the vital first step to improving your health and long-term wellbeing. Wherever you are in your journey to health, at The Whole Health Practice we work with you, to turn knowledge and intent into targeted and effective action.

Stay Healthy,



Professor Luigi Fontana MD, PhD, FRACP / Longevity-NOW-FL

Professor Luigi Fontana is globally acclaimed as a leading physician scientist in the realm of nutrition and healthy aging. His groundbreaking research on dietary restriction has reshaped the landscape of nutrition science, offering promising avenues for combating age-related chronic diseases. Through his extensive studies, Fontana shines a light on the intricate mechanisms underlying disease-free longevity and biomarkers for health and biological age assessment.

By employing advanced physiological and molecular techniques, Fontana investigates the effects of various interventions (including calorie restriction and plant-based diets) on key health parameters such as cardiovascular function, inflammation and cancer biology. His overarching goal is to pioneer a mechanism-based approach to disease prevention and treatment.
