  • New Report Suggests Ingredient In Longevinex® Supports Immune Health Via Its Ability To Inhibit Entry of Viruses Into Healthy Uninfected Cells

    March 22, 2020: by Bill Sardi


    A newly published report indicates beta cyclodextrin, a solubilizing and anti-cholesterol agent in Longevinex®, inhibits attachment of coronaviruses to infect cells.  According to a report published in the March 2020 issue of Acta Biomedica, cyclodextrin also inhibits the molecular doorway (ACE2) for coronaviruses to enter cells.  Cyclodextrin essentially competes with viral targets for entry into healthy cells. Cyclodextrins are sugar-like molecules that serve as stabilizers and as a molecular delivery system.

  • Resveratrol Helps Overcome Declining Vitamin C Blood Levels With Advancing Age

    February 27, 2020: by Bill Sardi


    A predicament of old age is that vitamin C blood levels which once were maintained in youth cannot be easily maintained in the senior years of life.  Some of this inability to maintain healthy vitamin C levels emanates from the loss of recycling of vitamin C in red blood cells.

  • Wine Vs. Beer Or Alcohol Spirits: Wine Reduces Mortality Risk, Other Drinks Don’t. But Don’t Think This Gives You License To Get Sloshed Every Day. Red Wine Pill Would Be Better.

    February 23, 2020: by Bill Sardi


    Take a gander at the chart below.  Data shows when intake of all alcoholic beverages is combined (wine, beer, spirits), only wine at modest intake levels (3-5 drinks/week to 1-2 drinks a day) markedly lowers the risk for death compared to other alcoholic beverages (purple).

    When broken down by type of alcoholic beverage, data shows only modest wine consumption results in a striking decline in mortality
    (-27%) compared to beer (increased risk for death: +37%-153% and alcohol spirits (increased risk +9-73%). [Alcohol spirits are defined as 20+% beverage alcohol content: whiskey, vodka, rum, tequila, sake, brandy.]

    At high intake of ANY alcoholic beverage including wine, mortality risk increased.  But at modest intake levels only wine (-27% relative risk) reduced mortality rates compared to modest intake of beer (-2%) and alcohol spirits (-3%).

  • Your Biological Age Could Be Over 100 Or As Low As 20 Say Aging Researchers

    February 17, 2020: by Bill Sardi


    There are vast differences in biological aging in Americans due to dietary and environmental “epigenetic” factors that switch genes on or off.  Of the estimated 25,000 genes in every cell in the human body, these genes vary widely in their protein-making (epigenetics).

    Researchers now report <https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8010985/DNA-analysis-shows-60-year-old-person-genetic-age-100.html>  they found a 66-year old had the biological age of 114 while a 59-year old was biologically 23.  Differences in smoking rates, obesity and stress were identified as drivers of aging.

  • Meta-Analysis (88 Studies) Reveals Polyphenols Like Those In Longevinex® Control Blood Sugar

    February 15, 2020: by Bill Sardi


    The reviewers analyzed 88 published human studies involving a class of molecules called polyphenols like those used in Longevinex.  Molecules like resveratrol, quercetin, fisetin, IP6 rice bran, and report these molecules exert profound control over blood sugar, particularly among diabetics.

    Blood sugar was only modestly reduced (-3.32 milligrams/deciliter of blood) in healthy adults (as it should be) but had a more demonstrative effect among diabetics (-5.86 mg/dL) and diabetics on anti-diabetic medication (-10.17 mg/dL).

    The report was issued by European researchers in the European Journal of Nutrition.  It can no longer be said that polyphenols like resveratrol are unproven.  ####

  • Modern Man May Be Closer To The Discovery And Adoption Of An Anti-Aging Pill Than You Think; But You Have To Give Yourself Permission To Take It

    February 6, 2020: by Bill Sardi


    MAIN POINTS

    • The medical industry serves an an impediment to the discovery and adoption of an anti-aging pill.
    • Government has made it illegal to claim any natural substance remedies aging.
    • The rapid expansion of the volume of scientific information suggests the eradication of all diseases and aging itself is not beyond the reach of modern medicine today.
    • The time it takes to make such a discovery is shortening due to the “law of accelerating returns.”  Futurists predict the eradication of all disease as well as aging itself.
    • There is a boom in the number of centenarians, all who reached 100-years of age without consciously making an effort to do so.  Just wait till an anti-aging pill gains traction.
    • Government overseers and life insurance companies need the public to die on time.  Don’t expect any medical institute or governmental agency approve an anti-aging pill.  The personal discovery of an anti-aging pill is left for each individual to explore.
    • Valid strategies and practices now exist to reliably make 120-year lifespans and health spans common; namely fasting, calorie-restriction and blood-letting.  These are no-cost practices (even less-cost by saving on food).  Intermittent fasting is gaining traction, but for reasons of weight control, not the pursuit of longevity.
    • Food deprivation is not expected to be popular.  A pill that molecularly mimics fasting would augment or even replace the above restrictive dietary measures.
    • Longevity seekers can readily find an anti-aging pill once they understand the cause of aging, which is over-mineralization.
    • Genes do not control aging, minerals do.
    • It is not fewer calories that produces an anti-aging effect, but the fact fewer minerals are consumed when limited calorie diets are practiced.
    • Various natural molecules (resveratrol, quercetin, fisetin, rice bran) chelate (bind to) key minerals (iron, copper, calcium) that drive aging and would serve as an anti-aging pill.
    • A combination of natural molecules works synergistically to chelate (bind to) minerals and dispose of them.
    • A long-ignored study showed a combination of natural molecules was superior to calorie-restriction in its ability to favorably alter anti-aging genes.
    • If humans can overcome their fear of longevity, an indefinitely long and healthy life is at hand.

  • Resveratrol Confounds Heart Researchers

    January 14, 2020: by Bill Sardi


    Heart Researchers Are Confounded by a long-term (12.3 year) study where red wine drinkers who exhibited higher circulating cholesterol numbers and more severe calcification of coronary arteries, both known risk factors for mortality, paradoxically had a much lower risk for a major heart attack or cardiac death. (Has the so-called French Paradox been uncovered –the reason why the French who consume fattier foods and drink alcohol, have far lower cardiac death rates than North Americans?)

    In recent decades cardiologists have used cholesterol and calcification of coronary arteries as markers of risk for cardiac death. Historically, when it was reported as many patients with high total cholesterol die of a heart attack as those with low cholesterol, cardiologists pointed to elevated LDL (low density lipoproteins) as the chief culprit. Though there is scientific question as to whether LDL cholesterol is really linked to death from any cause.

  • THE UNTHINKABLE: LIVE 400-500 YEARS?

    January 9, 2020: by Bill Sardi


    Hitting futurist news wires today is the unprecedented report (journal Cell Reports) that claims modest de-activation of two gene pathways increases the lifespan of microscopic-sized roundworms by an unprecedented 400-500%.  Taking into account roundworms have a genetic makeup similar to humans — 20,470 protein-making genes compared to ~25,000 in humans — genes that are arranged in a similar (homologous) fashion (position, structure, function) as humans, the application to human longevity is obvious.  Now to wait four or five hundred years to find out if this is true.

    Given that biologists don’t have four or five centuries to conduct a live study in humans, short-lived animals like roundworms are used in laboratory experiments.  This report will likely create a stir in scientific circles as well as public disbelief.  Under controlled laboratory conditions, the lifespan of roundworms was extended from ~20 to ~100 days!  (400-500 years in human terms)

  • Your Brain & Heart Cells Must Last A Lifetime

    January 6, 2020: by Bill Sardi


    What To Do Before & After A Heart Attack Or Stroke

    Though it is said the human body renews itself every ten years, that is not true for every tissue and organ in the body. It may never dawn on most people that while humans have a self-renewing/regenerating body, most cells in the heart, eyes and brain never renew themselves and must last for a lifetime. Once damaged or deadened, cells in these critical organs may never regain full function because of a slow rate of cell regeneration.

    The cell turnover (renewal) rate varies throughout the body. If cells in the brain and heart replaced themselves as rapidly as skin cells do (a new layer of skin about every 4-6 weeks) our memories would be lost, our vision would be cloudy and our heart muscle cells would be weakened and couldn’t adequately pump blood. Cells in brain, eye and heart are designed to be replace themselves slowly, if ever at all. The brain, eye and heart cells we were born with must last a lifetime.

  • WHY WINE SHINES AND RESVERATROL DISAPPOINTS

    January 1, 2020: by Bill Sardi


    REPLICATION OF WINE’S MAGICAL PROPERTIES WITH THE SYNERGISTIC POWER OF COMBINED NATURAL MOLECULES

    It has often been said there is magic in wine.  Biologists confirmed that in recent times with the discovery resveratrol, a miracle molecule in wine, which has been called the “elixir of eternal youth.” Is resveratrol wine’s revealed secret?  Only in part.

    It is said that resveratrol is theoretically a molecular mimic of a calorie restricted or fasting diet, a practice known to double the lifespan and health span of animals in experimental studies.  But a recent human study failed to show that resveratrol fully mirrored the beneficial effects of food deprivation.  Calorie restriction (30-50% fewer calories) was found to be superior to resveratrol in another earlier study.  Resveratrol does activate a key survival gene, Sirtuin1, that is also activated by limited calorie diets.  But resveratrol doesn’t fully do what a limited calorie diet accomplishes.
