Live Longer By Changing How You Cook!

A list of over 500 dietary constituents reveals surprising differences in levels of glycation products depending on how foods are prepared. Foods cooked at high temperatures increase cancer risk and accelerate aging because of the harmful mutagens and advanced glycation end products they contain. Glycation reactions can be inhibited in one’s body using carnosine, benfotiamine, and pyridoxal-5-phosphate. Mutation damage is reduced in the presence of chlorophyllin and indole-3-carbinol.

Oral Treatment For Dry Eyes

Aging, laser surgery, contact lenses, and computer use contribute to the lack of tear production that characterizesdry eye syndrome. Scientists in Japan have discovered that an extract from the maqui berry can alleviate dry eye syndrome without the use of commercial eye drops. Human studies demonstrate that orally taken maqui berry extract produces a 48% improvement in protective tear production, along with reductions in burning and discomfort.

Human Age-Reversal Research

A clinical study is being designed that seeks to induce meaningful and systemic reversal of aging processes in elderly human subjects. The premise of this clinical trial is published findings from Harvard, Stanford, and other universities demonstrating powerful age reversal when blood from young animals is transfused into old animals. TheLife Extension® Foundation is coordinating the first clinical study to reverse aging in frail elderly humans utilizing plasma youth factors derived from the stem cell-mobilized young human donors. The goal of this research is systemwide rejuvenation and life span increases.
