  • Living Long Without Losing Bone & Muscle Mass

    May 21, 2017: by Bill Sardi

    Just take a gander at all the Hollywood celebrities who have lived into their tenth decade of life. Actor Kirk Douglas (100); Actress Carol Channing (96); Betty White (95); Entertainer Carl Reiner (95); Actress Doris Day (94); Angela Lansbury (91); Dick Van Dyke (91); Jerry Lewis (91); Mel Brooks (91); singer Tony Bennett (90).  You’re likely to live that long too!  []

    The collective efforts of the younger will be to support the older.   Short of adoption of an anti-aging pill that will prolong the HEALTHSPAN along with the lifespan of Americans, that will be how we measure tomorrow’s economy,

  • Universal Superlongevity without the Calorie Restricition

    April 7, 2017: by Bill Sardi

    The race to prove the first anti-aging pill just got a bit more interesting if not closer to reality. The latest anti-aging pill is POOP. Yep, you heard it right. Excrement.

    The bacteria from the feces of young killfish was transferred to older killfish with a startling prolongation of life — +41% longer, enough to nearly equal the long heralded doubling of the healthspan and lifespan of rodents achieved by a calorie restricted diet in the animal lab.

  • Longevity Behind The Scenes: It’s Not The Telomeres Nor The Genes Or The Calories. It’s The Minerals

    March 28, 2017: by Bill Sardi

    Updating The Overmineralization Theory Of Aging

    Want to achieve superlongevity as the Biblical patriarchs were reported to have achieved?  Lengthen your telomeres (end caps on chromosomes) say some scientists.

    Want to live an unlimited lifespan?  Switch on a family of survival genes known as Sirtuins.  Resveratrol pills do this.

    Deprive yourself of food.  Eat only one modest meal a day and go hungry most of the time.  This same dietary practice doubled the healthspan and lifespan of laboratory animals and likely does the same for humans.

  • Resveratrol Is What Researchers Should Look For To Make Old Blood Young Again.

    March 24, 2017: by Bill Sardi

    Should WE Tell THEM?
    Or do they already know?

    Time and again science reporters leave their reading audiences wanting as they break a news story about yet another high technology anti-aging pill they say will be years in the making but fail to point to readily available off-the-shelf remedies that do the same thing.

  • Metabolites Of Resveratrol (Longevinex®) Pass Through Blood-Ocular Barriers In Humans.

    March 22, 2017: by Bill Sardi

    On the heels of a study published last year that showed the red wine molecule resveratrol and its metabolites are found in human cerebrospinal fluid and therefore penetrate the blood-brain barrier, for the first time metabolites of the red wine molecule resveratrol have been detected in ocular tissues of humans as well. [Neurology Oct 2016], Journal Ophthalmology March 20, 2017]

    Inability to obtain biopsy specimens from tissues in the brain and eyes of humans had previously thwarted confirmation of resveratrol or its metabolites in nervous tissues.

  • Spring 2017 Science Update: Resveratrol

    Transplanted “Poop” In Resveratrol-Fed Animals Confers Health Benefits

    Some skeptics have called resveratrol pills a “hopeless illusion.”  They claim resveratrol is hiding behind “non-human research as a cover” for back-door marketing of resveratrol supplements.”  Resveratrol “may indeed turn out to be nothing more than a sleight of hand.”  [Pharmacological Research Dec 2014]

  • Resveratrol As Companion With Blood Pressure Medicines

    February 1, 2017: by Bill Sardi

    The newly published study is compelling — especially given the fact one medication is not likely to result in control of blood pressure.  Just 50 milligrams of resveratrol used as a companion with lisinopril (ACE inhibitor) meaningfully increases the effectiveness of anti-hypertensive therapy.  [Experimental & Therapeutic Medicine 2017]

    The medical control of blood pressure is low, between 30-50% with an additional 20-30% resistant to treatment. The frequency with which the target control blood pressure level can be achieved with use of a single drug is also low. It usually takes two drugs to meaningfully control blood pressure with fewer than half of the patients achieving control.  [American Journal Hypertension 2001; Centers for Disease Control]

  • Heart Attacks: Researchers Finally Find “Big Piece Of The Missing Puzzle”

    January 30, 2017: by Bill Sardi

    Although a thrombus (blood clot) in a coronary artery that supplies the heart with oxygenated blood is the most frequent cause of death among men, “its immediate cause has always been wrapped up in mystery.” — Pathologist Paris Constantinides, Journal American Medical Assn.,1964.

    In 1990 an article published in The New York Times stated that cardiologists “had a nagging sense that a big piece of the puzzle of why people have heart attacks was missing…. although doctors conventionally attributed heart attacks to severe narrowing of the heart’s arteries from fatty deposits, they found in studying the coronaries of heart attack victims that the vessels were often relatively clean. And some cardiac patients had none of the known risks, like smoking, diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol.”

  • The Stage Is Being Set For An Anti-Aging Pill

    January 24, 2017: by Bill Sardi

    America First is the political appeal of the day. But the US may fall to second place in the modern quest to adopt an anti-aging pill.

    Another regime change – Americans have endured a few of them.  But has any new administration in Washington DC made even a dent in the relentless increase in the cost of medical care?

  • Debate Is Over: Calorie Restricted Monkeys Do Live Longer

    January 18, 2017: by Bill Sardi

    With recognition human studies of aging and longevity would take many decades to produce conclusive evidence, researchers who study aging must resort to studying animals with shorter lifespans in an attempt to discover strategies for humans to live longer and healthier.

    One such strategy is calorie restriction that doubles healthspan and lifespan of lower life forms and small animals.  For larger-bodied longer-living animal studies, the primate monkeys, researchers had to wait more than two decades when animals began to die off to determine differences in survivability.
