On last Saturday’s Show, we answered calls, discussed some of the following topics and touched on the 3 incredible articles listed at the bottom. Here is a brief review of the show as promised.
- The resveratrol life. Bill Sardi lives the resveratrol life and credits that in large part to the fact that at 72 his eye exam revealed: No cataracts; crystal clear lenses; No glaucoma; No retinal drusen (yellow blobs. 91% of adults have retinal drusen); Vision is 20/30 both eyes uncorrected because of astigmatism (oval rather than round-shaped corneas). Note: I know he takes resveratrol as Longevinex because it is the right form, in a dose that is not too high and comes with synergistic ingredients. 23 people have reported their color blindness vanished when taking Longevinex.
- Resveratrol is truly amazing. It is anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, anti-viral and anti-bacterial. It reduces blood platelet clumping, helps eliminate existing clots and retards cancer at all three stages: initiation, growth, metastasis or spread. (Take it at night?) It is good for hair growth, mental acuity, mood, “chemo brain” and pain relief. Resveratrol facilitates the disposal of cholesterol and beta amyloid plaque from the brain. It switches genes on or off in the ways we would hope for. In fact, it is more effective than the lifespan-doubling, healthspan-doubling effect of calorie restriction. Resveratrol improves 225 genes, but Longevinex affects 1711 genes which is more than calorie restriction. This link is my article on resveratrol, but I really need to update it with the newly discovered benefits.
- David. His wife has fibromyalgia. Sardi suggested benfotiamine (a special B vitamin), vitamin D (even a few days at 50,000 IU), magnesium and improving gut bacteria. I suggested taking the thyroid survey because thyroid might be connected to fibromyalgia.
- Jan. Her husband is bipolar. She asked if he can take Longevinex. Bill answered yes, but 2 hours away from the medication. Also suggested adding magnesium and fish oil.
- John. His wife has hot flashes at an age when they should be over with. Mr. Sardi said to get bioidentical hormones (not synthetics or those from horse urine as commonly prescribed). Resveratrol acts as a plant estrogen that does not promote cell growth. Bill also recommended reducing sugar and carbohydrates in the diet. I suggested asking a compounding pharmacy in your area for a doctor recommendation.
- Clostridium Difficile (C. Diff): The “Count Dracula Bacterium,” Is Fast Becoming A Household Word. This a dangerous and potentially lethal intestinal infection. The whole article is very interesting and important. One critical takeaway: Those who are deficient in vitamin D are 5 times more likely to contract C-diff!
- Closing in On Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) Any progress against this horrible degenerative disease is welcomed. Genes may be part of the reason for being a victim of ALS. However, I was struck by how many other degenerative conditions are affected by the same factors linked to ALS:
- Increased risk and worsened by – antibiotics, vitamin D deficiency, nerve toxins (like mercury, pesticides, herbicides and vaccines), statin cholesterol drugs, heartburn drugs, C. diff infection, high red meat intake and corn syrup.
- Improved by or risk lowered – Mediterranean Diet, magnesium, vitamin B1, good gut bacteria, multivitamin, resveratrol (working with quercetin and IP6), and hyaluronic acid.
- A Corner in Aging Has Been Turned; Population Reductions in Biological Age Now Being Reported. The factors listed above for ALS would all apply. Also consider the information at the top about resveratrol and genes.
It is just me saying this, but I believe that starting with a supplement base of Molecular Multi, added vitamin D (to get blood levels to 75 to 100), magnesium, fish oil, and probiotics (Dr. Ohhira’s) would be helpful for any of the above and pretty much anything else I can think of. Add Longevinex if you wisely want the benefits of resveratrol we discussed above.
