Don’t Want to Fast? This Supplement Can be a Substitute!

By |2018-05-31T16:35:24+00:00May 31st, 2018|Nutrition|

Fasting has long been known to extend lifespan.

From worms to mice to rhesus monkeys, the lives of many creatures can be rendered longer by restricting their food intake.

This may be an effective anti-aging technique, but cutting down calories by a third or more is too big a price to pay for all but those who are really determined to live a long time.

For those of us who don’t like to go hungry, new, exciting findings have recently been released which demonstrate that a dietary supplement can mimic at least one of the major benefits of a calorie-restricted diet.

Yes, folks, it’s […]

Fruits and Vegetables Aren’t What They Used to Be

By |2018-05-17T03:54:32+00:00May 17th, 2018|Nutrition|

If you’re old enough, you may realize that today’s fruits and vegetables just don’t taste like the ones you remember as a child.

It’s not your imagination, or nostalgia.

The drive to increase food production over the last fifty to a hundred years has been successful, but it’s come at a price.

Modern farming techniques have caused water and carbohydrate content to rise, while protein, vitamins and minerals have taken a dive. There’s even a term for it: “the dilution effect.” The result is much more serious than a mere lack of flavor. . .

While we’re urged to eat five fruits and vegetables […]

These Two Common Food Nutrients Accelerate Aging

By |2018-04-29T03:24:13+00:00April 26th, 2018|Nutrition|

If you’ve been following the research into how to slow down aging, you’ve probably read that cutting calories and periodically fasting can help prolong your life. We’ve written about it frequently in these pages.

But not everybody wants to go hungry to live longer. There is some sentiment that good food is worth dying for. I can understand that.

And now there’s good news on that front. Studies show that a few adjustments to the foods you eat – without eating less or fasting – may produce some of the same anti-aging benefits. Here’s the good word. . .

The new line of […]

A Cozy Drink Reduces Glaucoma Risk

By |2018-04-29T03:03:06+00:00April 19th, 2018|Nutrition|

If the thought of losing your vision scares you as you get older, you’re not alone. Most people fear blindness more than losing a limb, and almost as much as getting cancer.1

That’s why glaucoma is so scary.

In glaucoma, abnormally high pressure develops in the eye and damages the optic nerve. It’s one of the top causes of blindness in the United States.2

But do you know the worst part about glaucoma?

It gives no warning signs. It comes over you so gradually, you may not even notice a change in your vision until it’s done permanent damage to one or both of […]

A New, Easier Way to Fast – And Add Years to Your life

By |2018-03-29T12:01:31+00:00March 29th, 2018|Nutrition|

We’ve written before about how fasting is one of the most effective ways to add years to your life (see Issue #8). In fact, it’s been called the only proven method of life extension.

The trouble is, doing without food is tough.

Now, a growing body of research shows you may be able to reap the benefits without starving yourself. there’s a diet that appears to provide just about everything a dieter could dream of – a smaller waist, less body fat and longer life expectancy along with a brain that works better.

I just heard about this recently at a massive anti-aging […]

The Anti-Aging Mineral That Millions Miss Out On

One of the most most important ways to fight aging is to keep your immune system operating at peak efficiency. A declining immune system is one of the most common causes of aging, but there are things you can do to prevent this.

And if you don’t take advantage of those simple steps, it’s likely your immune system will begin to malfunction and you will develop runaway inflammation.

Inflammation can, in no uncertain terms, shorten your life and make what’s left of it a misery. And one, simple mineral can help prevent that. . .

The immune system is sort of the neglected […]

This Broccoli Compound Slows Aging

By |2018-03-01T17:19:47+00:00March 1st, 2018|Nutrition|

A recent study shows a certain natural compound reverses the aging process by making cells act younger than they actually are. It’s called nicotinamide mononucleotide, or NMN for short.

This and other forms of nicotinamide have generated a lot of buzz in the anti-aging field. Many call them the “Fountain of Youth.”

Discover how this amazing element brings youth back to your cells and slows down the aging process…

NMN Helps Your Cells Function Properly

NMN plays a vital role in how cells use energy by increasing the production of another compound called NAD (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide).

NAD is critical for converting energy […]

New Nutrient Combats Mitochondrial Aging

By |2018-01-18T10:06:26+00:00January 18th, 2018|Nutrition|

There’s a great deal of evidence that mitochondria – the “powerhouses of the cell” – are a major factor in determining how long you’ll live.

With aging come damaging changes in these cellular energy plants — their quality content, volume, function, gene expression, and ability to make proteins all slide downhill. This happens because mitochondrial DNA are especially vulnerable to attack by free radicals.

These damaging effects have led to the “mitochondrial free radical theory of aging” – an update to the free radical theory of aging that’s been around for a while. The new theory suggests that

If you’re like me, you not only want to live as long as you can, you want to be as strong and healthy as possible as you age. You want more years, and you want them to be good years.

Well, I’m happy to report that researchers have found a new way to help us reach those goals.
