The Fat-Burning Hormone Guys Don’t Know They Need

Estrogen reduces body fat. Testosterone for fat loss.

Men are willing to pay big bucks to halt the aging process and win the war against their belly fat. In 2012, sales of Abbott Labs’ testosterone replacement gel AndroGel exceeded $1 billion.1

They say all you need is a cream, pill, gel, or injection of synthetic testosterone.

But hormones are complex. You can easily throw them out of balance. An abundance of testosterone doesn’t guarantee you will stay healthy—or trim.

In fact, packing on the pounds may have nothing to do with “low-T” at all. When it comes to decreasing body fat, testosterone is only part of the puzzle.

Scientist Searches for Eternal Youth in the Strangest Way

A scientist injected himself with bacteria to stay young. But there’s an easier way to reverse aging.

Dr. Anatoli Brouchkov has been doing groundbreaking research on bacteria he discovered in 2009. It’s called Bacillus F, and it has a unique characteristic…

It seems to have an unlimited lifespan.

The microbe has remained alive in the permafrost of Siberia for some 3.5 million years.

Deadly germs are lurking everywhere… Especially on these 5 items you touch all the time. But it’s simple to protect yourself anywhere you go.

As cold and flu season kicks off, we all become more conscious of germs in our midst. (Or at least we should.) But cold and flu germs are the least of our worries.

Scientists have found deadly microbes—like MRSA, E. coli, and C. diff—on surfaces we touch every day. These five are some of the germiest:

Restaurant Trays

Microbiologists from The National Sanitation Foundation swabbed 26 different public surfaces. Then they tested them for bacteria. Restaurant trays were the second most germ-infested public surface…right after public park sandboxes.1 I’m talking about the trays you’d see in a cafeteria-style eatery. And they serve more than lunch…

These are the same trays you’d see in a cafeteria-style eatery. And they serve more than lunch… They may carry anything from cold and flu viruses to coliform.2 That’s a type of bacteria that indicates the presence of human or animal waste. It can cause dysentery, hepatitis A, and other major infections.3

Slow Brain Aging With This Vitamin

If you aren’t getting more of this nutrient to prevent cancer, you should get more for your brain. Research shows it may slow cognitive decline.

It’s arguably the most critical nutrient for your health. Your immune system needs it to keep you bug-free during cold and flu season. Your bones need it to stay strong. And your skin won’t heal without it.

Now new research reveals it is a simple, natural way to save your brain from dementia, too… I’m talking about vitamin D3.

Scientists at the UC Davis Alzheimer’s Disease Center in California studied about 400 people. They were all around the age of 75.

Reverse Nerve Damage With This Safe, Effective Solution

The amino acid acetyl-L-carnitine relieves pain from neuropathy.

It happens to diabetics and chemotherapy patients. It also happens to people suffering from auto-immune diseases, certain viruses, and nutrition problems. Sometimes you develop it just because you’re aging.

Everybody knows a sensible diet is important to good health. But a new study finds that when you add an extra dose of olive oil to a healthy eating plan, something amazing happens…

Scientists in Spain had thousands of women between the ages of 60 and 80 supplement their diet with 4 extra tablespoons of olive oil a day.

Five years later, what they found was a true cancer-prevention game-changer: Few of the women in the study developed breast cancer. In fact, their risk had been slashed by a stunning 68%.1

Does your skin take forever to heal? Even from the tiniest cuts, scrapes, and sores? You may not be getting the nutrients your body needs to mend.

The Tea That Is 10 Times Healthier Than Green Tea

This ancient tea of samurais is more powerful than green tea… It can protect your heart and reduce your risk of dying. Find out what it is.

Samurai warriors drank it for lasting energy on the battlefield. And modern science shows that it can protect your heart as you age.

Matcha (pronounced MA-cha) tea comes from young green tea leaves grown in the shade. It packs much more antioxidant power than standard green teas. Studies have shown the potent brew lowers inflammation and even helps kill cancer cells.1

Japanese scientists found that people who drink five cups of regular green tea a day are up to 25% less likely to die from heart disease.2

Researchers Discover This Antioxidant can Stop Alzheimer’s in Its Tracks

Big Pharma’s drugs won’t slow the progression of Alzheimer’s. Now new research reveals this powerful antioxidant may. Here are four places to find it today…

The news about this antioxidant just keeps getting better… Earlier this year, Health Watch readers found out it boosts your memory. Then you discovered it can help your body clear out damaging free radicals… That alone may reduce your risk of Alzheimer’s disease (AD).

That was just the beginning…

Researchers at the American Academy of Neurology just finished the largest and longest clinical study of this compound on humans so far.1 They followed 119 people with mild to moderate AD for a year. The team looked at how this antioxidant affects the protein amyloid-beta 40 (AB40).2 Scientists have noted that as AB40 levels drop, dementia gets worse and AD develops.
