Are You Using Caffeine the Wrong Way?

Scientists have discovered a revolutionary molecule that could be crucial to the health and survival of Mars astronauts – and crucial to helping us look young forever.
Our cells have the ability to repair themselves, but that declines with age – and scientists finally discovered why. The breakthrough comes after six years of DNA research from scientists at Harvard Medical School and University of New South Wales. Their findings were published Friday in Science.
Researchers found that DBC1, one of the human body’s most abundant proteins, binds itself to the protein that are in charge of mending damaged cells, screwing up the healing process.
Then the team found a molecule called NAD, which stops DBCI – and other proteins – from getting in the way of cell repair. The older we get, the less NAD+ molecules we have.
In trials, researchers had mice drink water with a NAD+-boosting enzyme. “The cells of the old mice were indistinguishable from the young mice after just one week of treatment,” David Sinclair, lead author of the study, said in a statement. Not to mention the treated mice showed improved kidney function, regrown fur and the ability to run twice as fast as their untreated mouse friends!
NASA has already expressed interest in the miracle drug for their Mars astronauts, since radiation on the red planet almost guarantees they’ll develop cancer. It could also be used to help childhood cancer survivors, 96 percent of whom develop a chronic illness by 45 – a sign of accelerated aging.
“This is the closest we are to a safe and effective anti-aging drug that’s perhaps only three to five years away from being on the market if trials go well,” Sinclair said. Human trials of the treatment are set to begin within six months!
Anti -Aging Pills are not new in our lifetime. Most of them have been around even more than some of us have. Perhaps the one thing that keeps getting better is the hype and marketing around such pills. Increasingly, these pills promise youthfulness and other transformative anti-aging effects on the human body. It is a known fact that preventive health is good business and those who can find a magic pill first stand to make billions. The latest addition to the anti-aging race is Lenny Guarente, a prominent player in the gerontology field. Until recently, he was the head of MIT’s Paul F. Glenn Center for the Science of Aging and the founder of Elysium, a startup that sells and deals in only one product called Basis. Guarente believes his research in gene proteins called sirtuins and a molecule, NAD, will make people look and feel younger. According to his own statement, he believes that sirtuins will be able to influence the aging process in every living system. He goes on to add that this will work more effectively with more activity. In essence, the more active a person is, the slower their aging process will be.
Basis is a clinically validated drug designed to facilitate the growth and development at the cellular level. It contains a couple of ingredients such as Nicotinamide Riboside (the very coenzyme that the body uses to power metabolism), and Pterostilbene (a powerful and bioavailable polyphenol that plants produce when they need to protect themselves from externally created stresses). In addition to these two, there are also other ingredients such as microcrystalline cellulose, hypromellose, vegetable magnesium stearate, and silica.
Furthermore, the product has no animal ingredients in it. The available product in it includes vegetarian, gluten-free, nut free, vegan, and contains no artificial coloring or flavors.
The recommendation is to take two capsules a day regardless of having eaten food or not.
Inside every enzyme in your body, there is a coenzyme called NAD+ which some believe is the most common factor in health. It is essential for DNA protection, energy protection, circulating rhythms, and hundreds of other vital functions.
But as we age, NAD+ levels start to decline and those vital functions start to break down. This is where Elysium Basis anti-aging pill comes in, by promising an exponential increase in the NAD+ levels in humans by an average of nearly 40%. The supplement has gone through over 20 years of multiple clinical tests and has shown effectiveness in supporting the health and activity of human cells.
