CoQ10 Prevents Heart Failure

Heart failure is a leading cause of death in the United States. It’s caused when the heart does not pump blood effectively to meet the body’s oxygen demands. Symptoms may include cough, swelling, weakness, and difficulty breathing.

Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) can help people with congestive heart failure, improving the heart’s pumping ability and even reducing the need for medications.

A study out of Denmark showed CoQ10 drastically lowered deaths related to heart failure. Let’s explore the details.


A Common Virus That May Accelerate Immune

A major reason why our immune system fails with aging is that we lose vital naïve (virgin) immune cells while we accumulate excess levels of senile memory cells.1,2

Naïve immune cells are needed to respond to new malignancies and infectious agents,3whereas memory immune cells only respond to the original antigen, i.e. bacteria, virus, or cancer cell.4

Pine Bark Shortens Cold Duration

Coughing, sneezing, a runny nose, and a sore throat – no one likes having a cold. On average, the common cold lasts about seven days – far too long, if you ask us.

With cold season in full swing, your risk for coming down with one increases significantly. Hopefully, you’re taking some preventive measures.


AMPK --- The Cellular Enzyme That Promotes Longevity And Reduces Fat Storage

If one were to travel back in time to the 1800s, it would have been difficult to imagine that bacterial diseases would ever cease being the leading cause of suffering and death.1


The Deadly Consequences Of Excess Abdominal Fat

Few people realize that excess abdominal fat, especially excess fatty deposits around the internal organs in the abdominal cavity (called visceral body fat), is far more damaging to health and longevity than simply being “overweight.”


For a Beautiful You

Do you know…

Skin is often thought of as the great envelope of the human body. Its numerous and varied functions include external protection, temperature regulation, sensory detection and toxin removal, as well as the specialty functions involving hair and nails.

The skin’s appearance is determined by its exposure to harmful environmental influences such as sunlight and air pollution, in combination with diet, hydration, topical care and adequate rest.


Glucose – The Silent Killer

Diabetes Is a Form of Accelerated Aging

For decades, scientists have been trying to uncover the root causes of premature aging. The fact that diabetes is a form of accelerated aging comes as a surprise to most people. In fact, life expectancy for people with diabetes is four to eight years less than for non-diabetics. Both aging and diabetes share two important biological processes that damage the body: glycation, which results in damage to protein and lipid molecules, and oxidative stress, characterized by increased free-radical activity and damage to tissues by molecules like reactive sugar aldehydes. And many signs and symptoms of diabetes also commonly occur with aging, including:


Flavonoids Prevent Ovarian Cancer

Ovarian cancer is a silent killer. The condition is most often detected in the later stages once it has spread to other organs, making prevention of utmost importance.

In a recent study, scientists investigated if flavonoids, a group of plant compounds that are beneficial to health, were associated with a lower risk of ovarian cancer. Previous studies have also indicated that a plant based diet may offer protection against the disease.


Youngest person to be cryonically preserved by The Alcor Life Extension Foundation

A two-year-old girl from Thailand who died of brain cancer has become the youngest person in the world to be cryonically preserved in the hope that one day there will be a cure for her cancer and she could be brought back to life.


Maximizing Omega-3 Health Benefits

There are now close to 20,000 published studies on the benefits of omega-3 fatty acids. As researchers continue to discover new longevity mechanisms such as reducing brain shrinkage, protecting memory and improving endothelial function, scientists have begun to analyze how different omega-3 sources affect the body.


Protect Your Heart

Take Your Heart Seriously…

The Great, Healthy Pumpkin

Autumn is the season in which bright orange pumpkins begin to appear, most of which are creatively carved to serve as Halloween jack-o’-lanterns and discarded on November 1.

However, it’s a mistake to consider this beneficial plant food as nothing more than a holiday decoration, or source of a sugar-laden pie. Pumpkins can provide a variety of benefits, as you’ll soon see.

The pumpkin, a member of the gourd family cucurbitaceous, is native to North America, hence its real or imagined role in the first Thanksgiving day feast.


The Youth Restoring Benefits of NAD+

Since the year 2001, Life Extension® has been seeking a way to reverse a mechanism of aging that may not be adequately addressed by the healthy lifestyle choices most members currently follow.

Normal aging is accompanied by a noticeable increase in fatigue and loss of motivation. The tiredness we outwardly feel reflects inward impairment of cellular functions critical to sustaining life.
