I talk a lot about graceful aging through lifestyle transformation, better food, physical activity, spiritual development. Another aspect of graceful aging is using technology to slow down the aging process. By no means will we escape death, but we can leave on our own terms. We can live long, rich loving lives in good health and face death with no fear or regrets.
I’ve spent considerable time researching this topic and one of the major causes of aging is oxidative stress. You may not be familiar with that term, but you may have heard of free radicals. Free radicals are a byproduct of the body’s engine. We breathe, eat, live, excrete as human “engines”. At the cellular level this is also happening. We have over 100 trillion cells in our bodies and each one is going through this process. The waste products of the cell are free radicals. As with all waste, if you don’t take out the trash, you find that your environment is soon degraded and not a nice place to live. The body can produce trillions of free radicals every moment of every day.
Of course because we are so miraculously made, our bodies have an internal mechanism for taking out the trash. They are called antioxidants. Our bodies produce antioxidants to combat the oxidative stress caused by free radicals. This is why normal children and young adults don’t really age until around the age of 20. Prior to that, their bodies produce adequate antioxidants to combat the onslaught of free radicals every day. Mysteriously, around the age of 20, a switch gets flipped in our DNA and suddenly our capacity to make antioxidants is reduced. This doesn’t happen quickly but slowly over time our production of antioxidants declines and we start to age. As we age, the our cells are continuously ravaged year after year by free radicals and we start to see signs of aging at first, then we may start to see the diseases of aging, heart failure, diabetes, stroke, cancer. All of these are linked to high levels of oxidative stress.
Until recently western medicine had no knowledge of how to mitigate oxidative stress. Thousands of papers were written about it, but western medical doctors had no answer except to counsel people to take in more antioxidant foods and vitamins. Did you ever wonder why all of a sudden, everywhere you looked were products pushing antioxidants? Did it seem like just another fad or crazy scheme? Well, there was something to that. We didn’t know why the body stopped producing antioxidants so the next best thing was to promote vitamins. An entire industry skyrocketed to the top in sales of vitamins and all kinds of supplements. Unfortunately, a lot of this stuff was substandard and the very premise that you could stop oxidative stress with vitamins was a flawed concept. You cannot ingest enough Vitamin C to mitigate the trillions of free radicals in your system every moment. One antioxidant removes one free radical, a 1:1 proposition. As I stated earlier, we produce trillions of free radicals every minute.
But this is truth for a western approach. When all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail. But something amazing happened back in the early 2000’s. Dr. Joe McCord, working at the University of Colorado, developed a way to actually slow down oxidative stress in such a way that it could meaningfully impact your health. He created a proprietary blend of 5 eastern and western herbs and plants that proved to be a breakthrough in modern medicine. It has changed the paradigm. We now have a way to reduce oxidative stress by 40% in 30 days and up to 70% in 90 days. It’s called Protandim. I call it a modern miracle.
Protandim helps your body turn on the switch and go back to making your own antioxidants the way you did as a child. And it has a cumulative effect over time, reversing some of the damaging effects of aging, like wrinkly skin. I’ve taken this product for almost a decade and it’s still a secret. People are caught up in quick fixes for every imaginable ailment instead of getting at the root cause of most diseases of aging. Stop taking antioxidants and create your own internal antioxidants.
To get a closer look at the earlier research done by Dr. McCord, check out this ABC Primetime investigative report done back on 2005 by John Quinones. Watch the video.
