The ancient Chinese must have been very smart.

Described in Shen Nong’s Classic of Materia Medica sometime around 110 BC, a plant called Huang Qi was said to have anti-aging functions.

And now, over 2000 years later, cutting edge science is showing they were right. It really does seem to have the ability to roll back the years.

In the West, this Chinese herb is best known as astragalus.

According to an April 2017 report from Texas A&M University, scientists have identified three ways to give yourself a longer life:

  1. Drastically cut calorie intake;
  2. Restrict the amount of methionine, an amino acid found in meat;
  3. Use the drug rapamycin.

Rapamycin was originally used to prevent organ rejection in transplant recipients. In 2009, US scientists discovered it has an interesting side effect, at least in mice: it increased lifespan.1

But as an author of the report, Dr. Leyuan Liu, said, “Eating less and not eating meat will not be welcomed by the general population, while rapamycin has shown to suppress the human […]

Stem Cell Clinics

As a possible anti-aging therapy, regenerative medicine (also known as stem cell treatment) can turn back the clock on aging cells by injecting stem cells into adult tissue. Stem cells are capable of dividing – or “morphing,” if you will – into any other kind of cell. They are essential to the body’s ability to repair and rejuvenate itself.

So it’s no wonder they’re front and center when it comes to reversing aging.

Stem cell therapy as a viable option for reversing developmental aging is the “new frontier” of medicine. Because researchers are still discovering all there is to know about regenerative […]

Rafael Nadal, Tiger Woods, Fred Couples and many other high profile athletes have benefited from an unusual therapy that reduces pain and speeds up healing.

Whether it’s a sprained knee, pulled hamstring or chronic tendon injury, it’s a way of harnessing the body’s own healing power to allow sports stars to return to competition more quickly.

But its use isn’t limited to pain and injury. It’s producing remarkable results in the regrowing thin hair and restoring youthfulness to aging skin.

Angelina Jolie reportedly used the treatment to boost collagen and smooth out wrinkles.

It’s called Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PLP).

Platelets, which help blood to […]
