Top 5 Oldest Living Supercentenarian


A famous saying goes, “Don’t count the years; make the years count,” and it is something that most people forget to do nowadays. We keep counting our age by year, but we sometimes forget how to make every year count. And how do we make it? By celebrating ourselves more and making the most out of our time.  

That is what LongeviQuest believes in. To celebrate human longevity by sharing their remarkable stories and uncovering the secrets of a happy and long life.  

LongeviQuest is the global authority on human longevity that serves as a comprehensive database of the world’s oldest people. We specialize in researching and validating the age of people over 110 years old, which we call supercentenarians. We also share their stories, strength, and wisdom on life on our platform to inspire all of us.   

Meet the current oldest living person in the world, so continue reading below.
