The herb known as goat’s rue (Galega officinalis) has traditionally been used by mothers to increase their breast milk while nursing an infant. But there’s also a drug derived from this herb that researchers believe may be able to help you live longer and fight aging.

Scientists investigating this pharmaceutical have uncovered evidence that it can moderate blood sugar, lower the risk of heart disease,1 influence cellular metabolic processes and lead mitochondria (the organelles in cells that produce energy) to do things that make cells healthier.

The drug is metformin, an off-patent diabetes drug that’s been used for about 60 years and usually has […]

The Versatile Herb That Fights Off Old Age

Most of the time, if you hear about health benefits that seem too good to be true, it’s because they are. Be skeptical.

But I think I’ve come across an anti-aging exception to that rule: the herb rhodiola. Here’s what has me so excited.

Rhodiola rosea, also known as golden root, is a classic adaptogen, a substance that adjusts one of your body’s processes either up or down, as needed.

For example, if your immune system is too amped up, leading to harmful inflammation, an adaptogen may calm it down. If your immunity is too laid back, and allowing you to get sick too […]

You know how people often say you just don’t have the energy you used to have as you get older? As the old joke says, “My get up and go got up and went.” People seem to think it’s inevitable.

But it’s not.

Waning energy and lack of motivation could be symptoms of a deficiency of an essential neurotransmitter. It’s a common thing that happens to people over 50.

If you’ve been feeling like the thrill is gone, read on for an illuminating explanation and how to reverse it.

The essential neurotransmitter I’m talking about is dopamine.

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.

A Popular Herb With Huge Health Benefits

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 […]

Are Lab-Grown Stem Cells The Future of Anti-Aging?

By | 2017-12-27T17:11:02+00:00 July 26th, 2017|Pharmacology|

Doctors in the the field of regenerative medicine inject undifferentiated stem cells into their patients to regenerate fresh cells, which in turn creates more robust tissue and organ systems in the body. These new cells can help reduce the symptoms of aging such as memory loss, aches and pains, wrinkled skin and degenerative diseases like cancer and dementia.

Up until recently, the primary treatment method has been to extract stem cells from a patient’s own adipose tissue (body fat) and inject them into the patient’s aging cells. This process is called autologous stem cell therapy.

The stem cells found in body fat […]

The Key to Conquering Aging Might Be in Your Poop

It may be hard to believe, but some medical researchers have found evidence that soon we may take a dose of poop to help us stay young longer.

That’s right. The therapy is called a fecal transplant – having somebody else’s fecal matter “transplanted” into your digestive tract. It’s already being used to cure Clostridium difficile (C. diff) — a serious infection of the colon. C. diff is caused by nasty digestive tract pathogens that often resist conventional drug treatments.

When you get a fecal transplant, you receive the beneficial bacteria that reside in a healthy person’s poop. If your gut is […]

For the rich and famous, facelifts, tummy tucks and Botox are standard operating procedure to help them look younger than their years. Expensive injections of human growth hormone and young blood plasma are other tricks they use to add some time and quality to their life.

The term “rescue dog” could be taken to a whole new level if exciting anti-aging research being conducted on middle-aged canines is soon applied to humans.

Researchers at the University of Washington’s Dog Aging Project have completed a phase one 10-week trial in which rapamycin, an FDA-approved organ-transplant and cancer drug, was administered in low doses to 16 aging dogs. Imaging results show the drug makes the dog’s heart more youthful in both appearance and functioning.

These results follow testing on middle-aged mice which showed rejuvenation in their bodies and a 10% increase in the length of their lives .

Former football star Hines Ward was pictured climbing out of one. Michael Jackson was filmed sleeping in one. A Beverly Hills clinic sends mobile versions to film and TV locations.

“It’s impossible to work with the Hollywood stars and not have heard about Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy” (HBOT) writes celebrity stylist George Bodwell.

He went on to use it for himself and found it sharpened him mentally, eliminated his allergies and rejuvenated his skin.

So what is HBOT and why are so many film stars and athletes using it?

Lowers Inflammation and Promotes Healing
