Extensive Research Links Green Tea to Healthy Aging

Green Tea Extract, in its concentrated form, has shown significant potential in addressing age-related concerns related to heart health, cognitive function, and metabolism.

Creatine Optimizes Exercise and Daily Performance

Creatine is an amino acid derivative stored in your muscles and used to create energy for movement. Every cell in the body relies on Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) as a source of energy that through muscle contraction, uses ATP and releases Adenosine Diphosphate (ADP). Stores of Creatine in your muscles help to quickly turn ADP back to ATP for additional energy.

The Role of Glycine in Human Health and Longevity

Glycine is a non-essential amino acid that is nonetheless necessary for many health-promoting metabolic processes. It is an integral part of protiens made inside the body, a precursor for important biomolecules like glutathione and creatine, and acts as an inhibitory (calming) neurotransmitter in the central nervous system. Research strongly supports glycine’s potential to protect health […]

NAD+ Injections Guard Against Heart Failure in Rats and Beagles

“This study, involving rat and beagle MI-induced HF models, indicated that NAD+ significantly improves myocardial hypertrophy and cardiac function, inhibits myocardial fibrosis, and reduces the myocardial infarction rate.”

Study Shows Spermidine Enhances Blood Flow Recovery and Promotes Blood Vessel Generation in Aged Mice

A recent study evaluated the therapeutic efficacy of Spermidine for blood flow recovery and blood vessel growth after artificially blocked blood flow in mice.

“Spermidine is a naturally occurring polyamine that has shown substantial evidence of anti-aging properties”

Study Shows NMN Reduces Arterial Stiffness & Blood Pressure

“Several human clinical trials indicate that NR and NAM supplementation decrease the risk factors of CVDs, such as hypertension, arterial stiffness, and elevated level of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol 13,14.”

Although NMN has been proven to improve vascular dysfunction in mice, it has not been thoroughly evaluated in humans.

New Human Trial Shows NMN Reduced Blood Vessel Stiffness and Significantly Decreased Diastolic Blood Pressure

A new human trial using 36 healthy middle-aged participants was recently published showing positive efficacy for NMN.  In this 12-week, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel-group clinical trial, it was shown that just 125mg of NMN twice per day reduced blood vessel stiffness and significantly decreased diastolic blood pressure in participants with elevated glucose levels. (1) NAD+ […]

NMN and Resveratrol Work Synergistically to boost NAD+ in Heart and Skeletal Muscle

A new study shows that the combination of NMN and Resveratrol works synergistically to increase NAD+ levels in both heart and skeletal muscle tissues in mice. Combination treatments shown to boost efficacy It is becoming more common to treat age-related diseases with anti-aging cocktails, including NAD+ or NMN to boost efficacy.  NMN has been shown […]

Heart Disease Related to Accumulation of DNA Damage and Oxidative Stress

As we age, the risk for clogged arteries, brittle blood vessels, and heart failure increase. A recent study looking at the DNA in numerous individual heart cells tells the story of why this occurs Buildup of Damaged DNA and Faltering Ability to Repair Damage In a ground-breaking study spanning 0 to 82 year olds, they […]
