Key Quotes:

 

“The reality is, we have to be present for our age. And if we were in gratitude about that, we're optimistic about that, it will actually add years to our life.” - Dwayne Clark

 

“Before you do [drink coffee], drink your water because your water will hydrate your cells. It will get rid of brain fog, and it will start your metabolism. You need to get rid of these deadly cells in your body and kind of wash them out of your body. Coffee will not do that. Water will do that.” - Dwayne Clark
