Reduce Starch-Induced Glucose Surges
All starches, even “healthy” grains, create after-meal glucose and insulin spikes. Researchers have discovered an enzyme known as transglucosidase that reduces the rapid conversion of starch to sugar—and transforms some of it into beneficial fiber—right in your digestive tract. Laboratory studies have shown that with transglucosidase, as much as 40% of the starch ingested is less likely to be rapidly absorbed into your bloodstream.
Aubrey de Grey: Cutting-Edge Longevity Research
Life Extension Foundation® is honored to welcome Dr. Aubrey de Grey, the world’s most acclaimed biomedical gerontologist, to our Scientific Advisory Board. After inheriting $16 million, he donated $13 million to a non-profit anti-aging organization. In this exclusive interview, Dr. de Grey discusses his seven strategies for ending aging.
Shield Yourself Against Solar Radiation
Despite the use of topical sun blocks, skin cancer rates continue to soar. A unique botanical extract, when taken internally, can protect the entire skin from the dangers of solar radiation including DNA mutations, photo-damaged skin (wrinkles), and collagen degradation.
Broad-Spectrum Protection Of Anthocyanins
Rich in bio-active compounds known as anthocyanins, dark berries provide frontline defense against multiple diseases of aging such as cognitive decline, diabetes, cancer, and heart disease. In this special report we discuss the 16 top-ranked anthocyanin-rich food sources that provide superior benefits against aging and age-related diseases.
A Safer Alternative for Managing Depression
About 90% of patients taking antidepressant medications experience at least one adverse side effect such as suicidal thoughts, anxiety,
and sexual dysfunction. Compelling new findings indicate that saffron is equally as effective as certain medications in treating
depression—but without the unwanted side effects. In addition, saffron can safely treat other mood disorders including anxiety and obsessive-compulsive
As We See It
An analysis of fasting insulin and hemoglobin A1c blood levels was conducted in Foundation members. A startling 66% had higher than desired fasting insulin. Over 20% had hemoglobin A1c levels that placed them in a pre-diabetic state. A natural enzyme has been discovered that helps reduce after-meal blood sugar and insulin spikes by converting rapidly digestible starch in the intestines into a fiber that is not absorbed as glucose. Use of this enzyme before starch-containing meals can help protect against glucose intolerance and deadly hyperinsulinemia.
