Red blood cells (RBC) are the most abundant cell type in the human body. I’ve tracked my RBC levels in conjunction with diet since 2015, and with the goal of reversing the age-related decline for RBCs, which dietary components have the strongest correlation with RBCs? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3JpyDiNxNeE&feature=youtu.be
Discussed in the video: Data for changes in kidney function during aging, kidney function values that are associated with an increased risk of death for all causes What’s my data for kidney function, 2006 – 2020? Can diet impact kidney function? Within my data, which foods are correlated with good […]
The Hallmarks of Aging are well established, but what is less discussed is the impact of microbes. Viruses, including SARS-CoV-2 and HSV-1 cause mitochondrial dysfunction-more specifically, they cause mitochondria to release some of their DNA, which triggers antiviral immunity. When considering that blood levels of mitochondrial DNA increase during aging, […]
The maximal reduction for biological age when using the biological age calculator, Phenotypic Age, is ~20 years. In other words, if I’m 80 years old and my biomarkers are all reflective of youth, the lowest possible biological age will be ~60 years old. One reason for that is the inclusion […]
In an earlier video, I presented data for apigenin’s ability to increase levels of NAD+. In addition to apigenin’s impact on NAD+, apigenin supplementation increases muscle mass, strength, and treadmill running distance in both young and old mice. Video link for NAD+ is increased in response to apigenin: https://youtu.be/5-2YoGctcCk?list=UUT… Paper […]
Here’s the first interview clip (of a series) with Modern Healthspan on YouTube where we discuss the role of the microbiome on health and longevity: Part II: Skin, Oral Microbiome & Immune System Part III: Optimal Health with Soluble Fiber Part IV – Microbial Burden & Hallmarks of Aging Part […]
Discussed in the video: What’s my biological age on blood test #6 in 2020? What’s my average biological age for 2020, and how does it compare with 2019? Are there links between calorie intake, cardiovascular fitness (RHR, HRV), and diet composition with my biological age?
