In the UK, women are expected to live on average for 3.7 years longer than men, to 82.9 years.

You could be at risk of a shorter life, however, if you do not eat a healthy diet and take enough exercise.

Having high blood pressure increases your risk of a stroke or heart disease, which can change your quality of life.

Stronger bones may also help you stay active and take part in sports for longer.

Dr Sarah Brewer, from mylowerbloodpressure.com, and Juliette Kellow, a dietitian, writing in their book Eat Better Live Longer, recommend yoghurt to avoid this.

I recommend yogurts and live probiotic yogurts because they are full of beneficial bacteria and also calcium and other nutrients you need.

“I recommend yogurts and live probiotic yogurts because they are full of beneficial bacteria and also calcium and other nutrients you need,” Dr Sarah Brewer told the express.co.uk.

“It’s an easy thing to include in your diet without much effort.”

Any type of yogurt can help, including regular, fat-free and greek styles. Dr Brewer said you can also eat soy yogurt, but if you do this you would need to add more calcium to your diet elsewhere.

One small pot (three to four tablespoons) a day should be enough to get the “greatest” health benefits.

To brighten the dish you can also add fresh fruit or nuts and seeds says Dr Brewer, as these also have positive effects on blood pressure.

“But don’t add sugar,” she said. “In the long term sugar is bad for blood pressure and other medical conditions.”

Since the 1990s, it has been known that low-fat dairy to a diet high in fruit and vegetables can lower blood pressure.

“Further research has backed up this link, and shown that yogurt in particular has impressive results.”

Calcium is also contained in yogurt, which can help keep bones stronger as you get older.

“From our mid-30s we start to lose bone mass, with an increased loss around the time of the menopause for women,” writes Dr Brewer.

“Calcium is vital for strong bones, and yogurt is rich in calcium, along with protein and phosphorous.

“Several studies have linked good intakes of yogurt to stronger bones.”

Other ways to live longer include consuming more avocado in your diet.

Taking regular exercise could lower your risk of an early death by up to 30 per cent, according to the NHS.

Simply doing the gardening, or taking the dog for a walk counts as light exercise.

Every UK adults should do at least 150 minutes of moderate exercise every week.

But, you could also lower your risk of an early death by making dietary changes, including eating a handful of nuts everyday.
