Dumbledore probably mastered a cell-regenerating spell, lol. :)

He didn't. Most wizards live that long

Probably the Philosopher's stone. Flamel lived for ages.

Re: How did Dumbledore live so long?

Stone has no relation with Albus's age. He lived as much as most wizards do. Grindelwald was one year older when he died. Aberforth was 3 years younger at the end and still alive. Bathilda Bagshot died mobths after Albus and she was at least 20 years older than him.

Like I said, magic. Witches and wizards live longer than muggles. They're also apparently harder to kill/hurt.

But muggles have technology that they can invent that could help them live a really long time. :)

If muggles can extract the things from a jellyfish or a squid to make products that make our skin look healthier and younger then muggles could extract the life-prolonging secrets from wizards and witches, too, lol. :)

Nicolas Flamel was good friends with Dumbledore, by the way.

Re: How did Dumbledore live so long?

I also think there is something that causes wizards to age more slowly than Muggles. So when Dumbledore was 116, while looking old, he was physically speaking in his mid- to late sixties.

Re: How did Dumbledore live so long?

Maybe having the extra substance of magic (to be able to muster up and shoot out spells) in their bodies helps them age slower, helps their bodies not deteriorate as fast, lol. :)
