Optimizing Mitochondrial Function and Protection

Supporting Aging Eyes

As we age many systems and senses begin changing. Often the changes in these senses result in some very significant alterations and decreases in quality of life. It is estimated that approximately half a million Canadians are living with significant vision loss that impacts their quality of life. Ocular aging relates to structural, mechanical, and functional impairments in any of the structures of the eye from the cornea, the covering of the outer eye that offers both protection and light refraction, to the macula, the center of the retina in which age-related degeneration occurs. Conditions that are attributed to aging

Protecting Your Telomeres – the Key to Fighting Aging with Science

At the end of each of our chromosomes there is a non-coding, repeating DNA segment called a telomere. Telomeres act in a similar way to the protective cap on the end of a shoelace. Like the plastic or metal cap keeps the shoelace from fraying and unraveling, telomeres cap each strand of DNA to protect our chromosomes from damage. There is significant research showing the correlation between telomere length and lifespan. Prematurely shortened telomeres have been linked to increased risk of disease and decreased longevity. As we age, our telomeres will naturally shorten by 20 to 40 base pairs each

Staying Young with Resveratrol

Many studies in recent years have reported that there are health benefits, including life extension, associated with moderate consumption of red wine. Why is this the case? What is it about red wine that makes it so beneficial? The answer is resveratrol, a plant compound that has been found to have numerous health enhancing properties. Resveratrol is found in as many as 70 plant species, including grapes, Japanese knotweed and peanuts. It has been suggested that dietary resveratrol acts as an antioxidant and reduces the damage of free radicals. Resveratrol also mimics the biological effects of a calorie-restricted diet and

Beauty From Within

True beauty is whole! Today, beauty and anti-aging practices are flourishing due to increased consumer demand for products and treatments that support youthful appearances and deter premature aging. Many of these approaches may be effective in their external application, and can provide results that makes us happy! However, these short-term external results often discount the internal aspects of health, which are required for sustainability.  Can we achieve youthfulness and beauty without compromising overall health? Can it be easy and sustainable? How do we avoid temptation of cutting corners and make an honest effort? And where do we start? With high

How Can Calorie Restriction Help Support Mitochondrial Function, Anti-Aging and Chronic Disease?

The benefits of calorie restriction (CR) have been studied for over 70 years. It has been the only proven method to extend the maximal lifespan of mammals. Numerous studies have found reducing total calories by 30 to 50% while maintaining proper nutrition can not only extend lifespan but also create impressive improvements in metabolism, energy production and neuroprotection in both animals and humans. There are number of reasons that CR has a beneficial effect including burning fats (ketones) as fuel but ultimately the mitochondria is where the positive effects occur. This has sent the scientific community in search of finding

How to Boost Your Skin’s Natural Sun Protection This Summer

The link between UV rays from the sun and skin cancer has been well established, chronic sun exposure has also been linked to photoaging of the skin. We also know that sun exposure is required for vitamin D production. Vitamin D is a complex fat soluble neuro-hormone involved in immune, bone, and even digestive function. Correcting deficiencies has been shown to improve immune function and even reduce risk factors for cancer development. Modified UV therapies have also been introduced as a treatment for autoimmune conditions such as vitiligo. So, how do we mitigate the risks of sun exposure in order

The Link Between Nitric Oxide & Alzheimer’s disease

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is an advanced stage of dementia which progressively worsens with time and is associated with a high degree of mortality. The disease is not part of normal aging, and is likely caused by various processes that damage nerve cells.  Many clinical symptoms are associated with AD, including cognitive decline, memory loss, disorientation, language impairment and so on plus AD also has a pronounced effect on the family or their caregivers. In 2010 in the US alone there were over five million cases and over twenty million worldwide. The cause of AD is not fully known but there
