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

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

The cells I’m talking about are stem cells.

Research shows that the changing nature of stem cells, […]

This Natural Molecule Ranks High Above All Others for Adding Years to Life

The close relationship between depressed levels of this natural peptide and the progression of aging could hardly be more convincing.

As a potent antioxidant and detoxifier, with key roles in the immune system and reliable links to longevity, this may be the one, single factor we need more than any other.

It’s called glutathione.

Levels Fall in All Organs After Age 45

Glutathione is made from three amino acids – glycine, glutamic acid and cysteine. It is found in all cells.

Although the body is able to manufacture glutathione, its ability to do so drops sharply after the age […]

Balancing Fats In Your Diet To Fight Aging

By |2017-12-27T17:14:47+00:00November 1st, 2017|Nutrition|

To fight the effects of aging, you have to eat the right kinds of fats.

Studies show beyond doubt that the cells in your body function better and keep you healthier when they get a balance of the right fatty acids.

But most Americans don’t. Here’s a quick rundown on good fats and bad fats.

Most of us consume too many vegetable oils like corn and soy oil that are filled with what are called omega-6 fats. In excess, those fats speed up aging.

The solution: Balance them fats with omega-3 fats, which is not hard to do. But first let’s take a look […]

How to Get Your Body to Make the Fountain-of-Youth Hormone

By |2017-12-27T17:14:27+00:00October 18th, 2017|Nutrition|

Your body contains a huge gland that, under the right circumstances, produces a hormone that’s remarkably powerful at fighting the aging process.

This hormone helps your muscles stay stronger, keeps your brain more alert and nimble, shores up your bones and keeps your blood sugar under steady control.

But few people have heard of this hormone, and researchers over the years have mostly neglected it.

Why? Strange to say, they didn’t fully appreciate that the part of the body that secretes the hormone was, in fact, a gland. That’s all changed. Keep reading to learn more about this new discovery that may add […]

It seems like some folks have just plain won the longevity gene lottery. They get to live to be a hundred because they inherited DNA from their parents that keeps them spry, alert and mentally sound no matter what their age.

I know a very lively 90-year-old man and also a 96-year-old woman who never bothered a whit about how they eat, the quality of their sleep, meditation or any of the other stuff we sweat over.
