We have some exciting news on the anti-aging front. It comes from Dr. David Rollo. He earned an M.D. at Cambridge University and a PhD from Princeton University. He’s written a dozen peer-reviewed journals on anti-aging and published four best-selling books on the subject. He currently leads research at McMaster University in Canada.
He’s just published a study in the current issue of the journal Experimental Biology and Medicine. It shows that a cocktail of easy-to-obtain vitamins and herbs may extend life by 10 percent. But more importantly, it can slow aging by 50 percent.
“If you can slow down aging, you could prevent degenerative conditions,” says Dr. Rollo. “You could basically slow down or prevent heart disease and many of the cancers.”
His first round of tests have been on mice. Those mice are living stronger, for longer.
Just like humans, mice get tired and frail as they age. However, Dr. Rollo has been supplying his aging mice with a special vitamin cocktail. With it, elderly mice have regained the energy and vitality of teenagers.
He hopes to achieve the same result in humans.
“As we all eventually learn, aging diminishes our mind, fades our perception of the world, and compromises our physical capacity,” says Dr. Rollo. “Declining physical activity is one of the most reliable expressions of aging. It’s also a good indicator of general mortality risk.”
Professor Jennifer Lemon leads research at the Centre for Probe Development and Commercialization in Hamilton, Ontario. She’s seen Dr. Rollo’s formula in action. And she believes it can help people live stronger, healthier lives, for longer.
“In an ideal situation, people would live healthy, productive lives and then die of organ failure,” says Prof. Lemon.
She thinks Dr. Rollo’s formula can do just that: help people live out their full lives with vigor and health rather than enduring a gradual decline.
“It would be a quick decline as opposed to the long, slow slide that humans experience now,” she says.
