Is This Energy Drink Nutrient The Fountain Of Youth?

We certainly wouldn’t recommend Red Bull. But it does contain a fascinating sulfur-rich amino acid designed to enhance physical performance. It’s called taurine. Outside the athletic community there’s little interest in this nutrient. Ignoring it would be a big mistake, however, because the latest research shows that taurine extends a healthy lifespan and can help slow down the way you age.

In fact, the data is so compelling that a new study describes a deficiency of taurine as “a driver of aging.” This begs the question, are you getting enough?

Our bodies naturally produce taurine from another amino acid, cysteine. But it […]

Gerovital H3 – The Original Anti-Aging Remedy

By |2023-11-22T16:41:52-05:00November 22nd, 2023|Anti-Aging|

The late Ana Aslan’s client list read like a Who’s Who of 1960s Hollywood: Dyan Cannon, George Hamilton, Zsa Zsa Gabor, Marlene Dietrich, Lillian Gish, Kirk Douglas, Bob Hope and more. Each set out on an annual pilgrimage to Otopeni, near Bucharest, Romania, to see this remarkable doctor and scientist in the 1960s and 70s.

So did Winston Churchill, and John F. Kennedy; two of many heads of state who felt compelled to make the trip.

The reason? To be treated with a “fountain of youth” remedy called Gerovital H3, a controversial treatment that wasn’t available in the United States. Here’s the […]

By |2023-11-17T13:09:50-05:00November 17th, 2023|Anti-Aging|

Around here, we’ve found that if you want to optimize health and boost longevity then you need to focus on your day-to-day lifestyle habits. Science reveals the importance of everything from exercise and stress management to sleep and diet. And the research begs the question, how does diet affect longevity and, more specifically, what are the health benefits of the frequently praised plant-based diet?

A Harvard study confirms that a healthy, plant-rich diet helps lower the risk of early death.1

And a massive study in the United Kingdom found that a healthful plant-based diet was associated with a lower risk of mortality […]

Are You Suffering From Inflammaging?

By |2023-11-16T10:28:12-05:00November 16th, 2023|Anti-Aging|

A common feature of aging is chronic, low grade, systemic inflammation which leads to tissue degeneration and is a characteristic of most – possibly all – age-related diseases.

It’s called “inflammaging” and stopping it is critical.

Now, in a significant breakthrough, researchers say they’ve found a key cause of inflammaging. Here’s what you need to know…

Inflammation is a normal and healthy response to an injury, drawing immune cells to the site to start the healing process. But why does it become chronic as we age?

Scientists have put forward various reasons why inflammaging occurs.

Causes of inflammaging

One source of inflammaging could come from […]

Three Easy, Natural Ways To Stop Frailty

By |2023-11-13T15:15:02-05:00November 13th, 2023|Anti-Aging|

When you think of the diseases that can change your life dramatically– or even take your life– conditions like diabetes, Alzheimer’s, stroke, and cancer are usually top of mind. But the truth is, there’s another condition that can dampen your active lifestyle, steal your independence, and even take your life.

I’m talking about frailty.

The chronic, weakening condition known as frailty restricts the life of one out of every four people over age 65. And by the time you’re in your 80s, your chance of becoming frail climbs to over 50 percent. It’s linked to falls, fractures, hospitalization, and early death. But […]

Frankenstein And The Rejuvenating Effects Of Young Blood

By |2023-10-27T12:07:00-04:00October 27th, 2023|Anti-Aging|

The story sounds like something straight from a sci-fi movie. An eccentric multimillionaire on a quest to defeat aging transfused himself with blood taken from a teenage boy.

But this is no movie.

45-year-old technology entrepreneur Bryan Johnson transfused himself with blood plasma from his 17-year-old son in an attempt to turn back time. He was inspired by research by scientists rejuvenating elderly rodents with the blood of youthful, healthy rodents. Research we reported in this very newsletter.

The question is, will Mr. Johnson’s transfusion slow the pace of aging and extend his life?

Let’s take a closer look…

We first covered the beneficial effects […]

Top Three Natural Senolytics And Why You Need Them

By |2023-10-20T14:54:10-04:00October 20th, 2023|Anti-Aging|

We’ve written a lot about senescent cells lately. These are cells that have grown old and stopped functioning normally. We called them zombie cells in the past and they’re linked to a number of diseases of aging.

The thing is, senescent cells aren’t just found in seniors, babies also produce them.

The difference is that the young immune system clobbers them immediately, but as we get older, senescent cells hang around, clogging up tissues.

Numerous approaches to rid the body of these zombie cells are currently undergoing human trials, but you don’t have to wait. There’s much you can do right now to […]

What’s The Best Exercise For Longevity?

By |2023-10-10T16:45:06-04:00October 10th, 2023|Anti-Aging|

It’s not exactly news that exercise is linked to health and longevity. And most of us are aware of the federal guidelines recommending at least 150 minutes of moderate aerobic activity every week.

But that ‘prescription’ doesn’t tell the whole story, leaving some of us with more questions than answers.

For instance, how much exercise do we need to live longer? Or what is the best exercise for longevity? And you may be wondering, ‘Will I get more longevity benefits if I exercise more than the federal guidelines?’

Fortunately, researchers are also keen on finding the answers to these questions.

Do you look in the mirror and wish you could iron out some of those wrinkles? Well, thanks to a procedure called platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy, anti-aging experts say you can.

Celebrities like Angelina Jolie and Kim Kardashian have both had PRP to give their faces a smooth and youthful glow. What’s more, studies back up many of the age-reversing claims circulating among the Hollywood elite.

So, what is PRP? And even more important, why is it known by the eerie name, “vampire facial”? Here’s the story…

The name vampire facial likely comes from the fact that this procedure uses human blood. […]
