Anti-Aging

 If it is not scientifically valid, you will not see it here!

Some anti-aging claims are notorious for not including any scientific evidence of their effectiveness. This site describes therapies that are  scientifically demonstrated to work. Although there is  still no fountain of youth, there are some exciting breakthroughs described below. As we await their eventual availability, the first step in anti-aging is to prevent the premature aging caused by insufficient sleep for 30% and overweight bodies and insufficient exercise for the majority in the USA as the problem spreads worldwide. Below are some breakthroughs. Following them is some general information.

Harvard Medical School and University of New South Wales Study

In human years, this would be like a 60-year-old converting to a 20-year-old in these specific areas.

These remarks preceded the above statement: “Examining muscle from two-year-old mice that had been given the NAD-producing compound for just one week, the researchers looked for indicators of insulin resistance, inflammation and muscle wasting. In all three instances, tissue from the mice resembled that of six-month-old mice.”

The mice were injected with nicotinamide mono nucleotide (NMN), which increased the levels of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD). There does not appear to be an available supplement that credibly claims to accomplish similar results for humans, and NHM injections for humans can only be done in clinical trials that are expected in the near future.

Dr. David Sinclair at Harvard led the above study and. One of his mentors, Massachusetts Institute of Technology biologist Leonard Guarente, has started Elysium Health, a company that offers a supplement that can increase NAD levels in humans.
