3 Supplements That Can Stop or Even Reverse Aging

Studies on mice have already proven these substances’ age-defying, even age-reversing properties. And even though they haven’t been fully tested on humans yet, enterprising biotech companies have seized the opportunity to bring them to market without the interference of the FDA...

3 Supplements That Can Stop or Even Reverse Aging

  1. 1. 3 Supplements That Can Stop or Even Reverse Aging
  2. 2. Let me first explain why people age.
  3. 3. One of the main causes of aging is weakening communication networks in cells between the genome and the mitochondrion.
  4. 4. A mitochondrion is like a digestive system of the cell that draws energy out of glucose to produce action-ready molecules called adenosine triphosphate (ATP).
  5. 5. ATP molecules supply cells with chemical energy—similar to what electronic devices get from batteries—and that helps us move, think, and overall keeps our bodies alive.
  6. 6. The energy needs of cells, however, fluctuate, and as a result mitochondria have to communicate with the genome, which announce the cell’s current energy needs.
  7. 7. The problem is that this communication network deteriorates as we age, and that deterioration damages our health.
  8. 8. Many scientists now believe that nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD⁺) is the main messenger.
  9. 9. One way to increase NAD⁺ levels is to ingest NAD precursors.
  10. 10. Here are 3 NAD precursors that are already available on the market.
  11. 11. Nicotinamide Riboside
  12. 12. Nicotinamide Riboside (ND) is a naturally occurring NAD⁺, which has been studied in clinical trials.
  13. 13. ND increases NAD⁺ levels in humans, and even better, it seems to be completely safe.
  14. 14. Human longevity studies could prove NR’s value for life extension, but you don’t know effects on a life span until you’ve waited long enough for test subjects to die.
  15. 15. Some scientists, however, believe we already know enough to warrant use of this precursor for life extension.

  17. 17. Oxaloacetate
  18. 18. Oxaloacetate (OAA) is a molecule that occurs naturally in cellular functions.
  19. 19. One important study showed that rats suffering from induced stroke regained their ability to learn when treated with oxaloacetate and acetyl-L- carnitine.
  20. 20. Another study reported that OAA increases energy production in the brain, reduces inflammation in the body, and stimulates neuron growth in mice.
  21. 21. Mitochondrial processes are similar across mammalian species, so anything that helps mitochondria in mice will likely help mitochondria in you…
  22. 22. Ubiquinol
  23. 23. Ubiquinol is another supplement for ATP energy production, which appears to be especially active.
  24. 24. This supplement is part of the electron transport chain for synthesizing ATP.
  25. 25. It’s available in most stores that sell supplements.
  26. 26. Should You Take Them?
  27. 27. Each compound increases NAD⁺ via a different pathway, so they might complement one another.
  28. 28. In time, clinical trials will nail down the most beneficial combination and dosages of NAD⁺ precursors.
  29. 29. Until then, we’re only guessing, but I’m too old to wait for perfect information.
