Based on the highly popular, I make my own Liposomal Vit C
Thread, which has blown up
with replies and super positive user feedback, I decided to make this thread here about the info I've not only gathered about, in regards to Longevity
& Anti-Aging, but also many of the foods and supplements I myself take.
First up. The woman who lived the longest on record (although this too could be debated). Introducing Jeanne Calment, who lived to be 122. She ate
over a Kilo of chocolate every week, drank Port wine, and consumed large amounts of Olive Oil not only on all her food, but also all over her skin.
I too consume large amounts of Dark Chocolate in my coffee every morning, and also many time skip breakfast after consuming a half bar of chocolate
with 90% cocoa in it. It is a proven Anti-oxidant.
Next up is a study about a Probiotic called LKM512, which was shown to increase the lifespan of mice:
Im hoping to add this to my daily diet, however right now this is only available in Japan.
Next up we have a nano particle based on Carbon called Fullerene C60 mixed with Olive oil which increased the Lifespan of Rats by 90%.
Study Fullerene c60 Rats
Coincidentally, this nano Particle also exists naturally in Shungite Rock in a certain part of Russia where people report that the water, that is
amongst those rocks, has healing and regenerative properties.
Right now this is not yet on the market, but there is a small Co. in Norway getting ready to sell their first batch this summer.
Next up are Adaptogenic Herbs. These are herbs that are in various studies that help all sorts of mechanisms in the human body including longevity,
anti-Aging, increasing factors in long distance running, muscle recovery. Adaptogens
I personally take Fo Ti, Jioagulan, Rosea Rhodiola, and Gotu Kola. All of which the Asian countries swear by and there are certain villages that take
these herbs as teas and have long life spans.
Superfoods such as Kale, Broccoli, Goji Berries, Blueberries, Sardines, Olive Oil and various others have a vast amount of studies showing the
benefits are ideal when added to your diet. Here's a nice list of Superfoods:
Amino Acids. While I take these to help in my work outs, a new study shows that a combo of four Branched Chai Amino Acids (BCAA) increased the
lifespan of Mice by 12% (Hey Its still something)
This is just a start of the thread. I know there is much more like PQQ, Glutathione, SOD (Superoxide Disumtase), Carnosine, etc.
This is just a start. Feel free to add to the List.
