Novel Magnesium Compound Reverses Neurodegeneration

Alzheimer’s disease is the sixth leading cause of death among aging individuals in the United States. A team of MIT researchers has identified a form of magnesium that targets correctable factors involved in Alzheimer’s onset. It concentrates more efficiently in the brain than conventional magnesium, rebuilding ruptured synapses and restoring neuronal connections. In one experimental model, this superior magnesium-L-threonate induced a 100% improvement in long-term memory!


Protect Your Joints from Autoimmune Attack

Scientists at Stanford University found that the inflammatory joint damage observed in osteoarthritis is caused by the same autoimmune dysfunction as rheumatoid arthritis. A patented type II collagen safely regulates the immune system, shielding delicate joint tissue from arthritic autoimmune attacks. Its action may be enhanced when combined with Boswellia serrata and other
joint-renewing nutrients.

Can a Diabetes Drug Prevent Cancer Death?

The low-cost anti-diabetic drug metformin is one of the few prescription drugs Life Extension® recommends everyone consider taking. Recent data powerfully validate our longstanding position. In a group of 8,000 diabetics, cancer rates were slashed by 54% over a ten-year period compared to the general population.

Suppress Deadly After-Meal Blood Sugar Surges

Surges in blood sugar after each meal can reach diabetic levels that last for hours or even days. A novel green coffee bean extract has been shown to neutralize a key enzyme that facilitates these lethal after-meal glucose “spikes.” In human trials, it yielded a remarkable 24% drop in after-meal blood sugar in just 30 minutes and an average reduction of 32% after two hours!

Proven Methods to Reduce Fasting and Postprandial Glucose Levels

Risk of heart disease and diabetic complications increases with fasting glucose above 85 mg/dL and postprandial glucose above 140 mg/dL. Yet many people have difficulty maintaining fasting glucose readings below 100 mg/dL. Here we outline nutrients, hormones, drugs, and lifestyle changes that can help you impede glucose absorption, improve insulin sensitivity—and maintain healthy glucose levels.


As We See It

Doctors Overlook Leading Cause of Premature Death

Despite a virtual mountain of scientific data showing the lethal dangers of high blood sugar, mainstream doctors are allowing their patients to needlessly suffer and die. It is not just elevated fasting glucose that leads to diabetic complications in non-diabetics. Startling findings reveal excess after-meal glucose surges inflict frightening damage throughout the body and are involved in the leading causes of death in America.
