How Calcium Increases Heart Attack Risk

Recent evidence indicates that calcium-only supplements, taken alone, may raise the risk of heart attack. Not reported was the data showing that magnesium and vitamin K2 prevent cardiovascular disease by shielding soft tissues against deadly calcification.

Novel Magnesium Compound Reverses Brain Aging

MIT researchers have identified a form of magnesium that targets correctable factors involved in the onset of Alzheimer’s. In one experimental model, this superior magnesium induced a 100% improvement in long-term memory!

Suppress Autoimmune Joint Damage

Scientists at Stanford University discovered that the same destructive autoimmune dysfunction observed in rheumatoid arthritis causes the inflammatory joint damage of osteoarthritis. By safely regulating the immune system, a patented type II collagen shields delicate joint tissue from arthritic autoimmune attacks.

Inhibit Lethal After-Meal Glucose Spikes

After-meal glucose surges can reach diabetic levels even in non-diabetics. Fortunately, a novel green coffee bean extract has been shown to suppress deadly blood sugar “spikes.” Human trials found that it produced a 24% drop in after-meal blood glucose in just 30 minutes and an average reduction of 32% after two hours!

Pycnogenol®: Multi-Modal Defense Against Aging

Pycnogenol®, a plant extract from the French Maritime pine tree, has been shown to modulate five major mechanisms of aging. Laboratory results demonstrate significant improvements in skin elasticity, blood glucose, cellular function, and capillary health with the use of this broad spectrum phyto-compound.

Nutrient “Cocktail” Delays Aging and Extends Life Span

In the quest to halt aging, an international team of researchers has formulated a 30-nutrient “cocktail” that acts along multiple pathways to inhibit five aging mechanisms. All of the nutrients used in the study are currently taken by health conscious humans, which is comforting considering the researchers documented increases in longevity and marked protection against pathological aging processes.

Powerful Protection Against Cellular Aging

A critical coenzyme known as PQQ activates vital cell-signaling pathways involved in creating new mitochondria, improving cellular metabolism, protecting neurons, and repairing DNA damage. PQQ has the potential to reverse subcellular aging!

Reversing Brain Decay

Maturing individuals’ risk of developing Alzheimer’s increases exponentially, with prevalence reaching a staggering 25-30% between ages 80-85. Explosive findings presented at a 2011 Alzheimer’s Conference in Paris reveal that Alzheimer’sassociated changes in brain tissue occur far earlier than previously thought. Life Extension® members already reduce senility risk with nutrients they take. Now a new highly absorbable form of magnesium has been shown to blunt brain degeneration by protecting the integrity of brain synapses and increasing synaptic density.

New Study Warns Against Excessive Vitamin D Intake

New research has corroborated the blood-level range of 25-hydroxyvitamin D that was long ago established as protective against degenerative diseases. But the same scientists also found that excessive vitamin D levels may increase the risk of atrial fibrillation. Blood testing is strongly advised to achieve optimal levels of this important vitamin.

The Testosterone Controversy

The benefits of testosterone in protecting against heart disease and metabolic disorders are well documented. Low testosterone is associated with excess abdominal fat, loss of insulin sensitivity, and atherosclerosis. This analysis discusses the testosterone debate and why it is critical for men to know what their testosterone blood levels are.

As We See It

Extensive scientific evidence documents the anti-cancer properties of metformin. Yet it is illegal for manufacturers to promote metformin to healthy people who want to reduce their risk of cancer, vascular occlusion, or obesity. Unless the current political/legal stranglehold over medical innovation is lifted, needless suffering and death will continue.

Another Victory Against FDA Censorship

A federal judge has ruled that the FDA cannot censor health claims about green tea and cancer prevention. This represents a victory for consumers to learn about validated methods to slash disease risks. Americans can easily email Congress to encourage passage of the Free Speech about Science Act (HR1364) that will further halt FDA suppression of truthful scientific information.
