There is an old adage in medicine that if you need more than one medication for a disease, you do not have the correct medicine. One disease, one treatment makes sense, considering the large number of drugs prescribed for illness today. Many people, in fact, are not even taking the correct medicine.
The danger of one drug for all diseases is equally serious, but one supplement for diseases makes sense. A supplement is an adjunct, a helper, much like a friend. Friends are also supportive in many ways: they add to our sense of well being, boost our confidence, and help us through tough times.
I see alkylglycerols in this same manner. They are not a panacea (i.e., cure-all) for all the ills of mankind, but they are a powerful aid to good health. Unfortunately, much of the clinical data on the use of alkylglycerols is anecdotal.
Except for the large clinical studies in cancer research, few papers have been published on clinical trials with humans. What I will present in this chapter are conclusions based on reports from the scientific literature, the traditional use of alkylglycerols over many years, results of discussions with colleagues, and finally, the actual clinical experience I have had with the use of alkylglycerols.
…These are only two examples. But most of us have friends or relatives who are octogenarians, who are active, energetic and not incapacitated. Some are highly gifted with remarkably positive outlooks. But in my experience, the majority have lived active lives and consumed a moderate, balanced diet. Here again are the same conditions that help prevent not only heart disease and cancer, but also the changes typically associated with aging.
How long could a person live if there was no death gene? The answer is tied to the Second Law of Thermodynamics: Everything in the universe eventually winds down. No material thing can last forever, since it requires energy to keep it intact. Why, even the sun is fizzling out, albeit very, very slowly. (Scientists calculate this may take another billion years or so to happen, though, so don’t lose any sleep over it.)
What is the upper limit of the human life span? The growth rate of various organs over the first 20 years varies tremendously. The brain is almost at its full size at five years of age, but the reproductive organs are not fully mature until about age 20. Most mammals living in the wild live about eight times longer than their sexually mature age. So if a horse matures at two to three years, it is likely to live 16 to 24 years. Some horses actually live longer, if under human care.
Since humans mature sexually at about 20 years of age, we could potentially have a life span of 8 x 20 = 160 years. However, I would not place this as the upper limit since, as we learn more, we could side-step many other diseases. Once we have learned how to protect our cellular mitochondria from oxygen damage, we could theoretically live well over 200 years!
Consider this: If we were able to conquer all the known diseases on earth that currently kill us, we would only add about 19 years to our present life expectancy. So it is not the diseases, such as cancer and heart disease, that we should be looking at for research funding. We may find cures for them, even in our present lifetime. Rather, we should invest in research on the chronic oxidative changes that impair the quality of life and cut it tragically short.
For anyone who wants to ward off the effects of aging, I recommend at least one 250-mg capsule of shark liver oil, three times a day. During times of emotional or physical stress, I would double that to 500 mg, three times daily. Continue this supplementation for a month, and then discontinue for a couple of weeks before starting again. This is a wise course to follow, since the liver tends to store fish oil-derived vitamin A for long periods of time. By doing this, you are reducing your risk of vitamin A overload.
Many scientists now believe that aging is not a normal process, but that it is a chronic disease process resulting from free-radical damage. While certain physiological changes are associated with the passage of time, there is no programmed aging process, no aging genes that determine how long you will be young, no death gene that “knocks us off” at some predetermined age.
What we call aging is essentially physical changes associated with the passage of years. The first change we see is usually gray hair that eventually turns white. Yet, there are many beautiful women (and men) who have gray hair in their 20s! By no stretch of the imagination would we call this a negative change, since these individuals are perfectly attractive.
However, when gray hair is associated with faded, sagging, or wrinkled skin, we consider the individual “old.” Some of these people are still in their 30s! Are they old? Absolutely not, but they have probably been afflicted with severe free-radical damage. Gray hair, for example, is hair that no longer produces melanin (i.e., pigment).
The process is not irreversible, since many gray-haired individuals, who have undergone radiation treatment to their heads, have regrown jet-black hair over the next few months. I have seen this many times in my patients who went through radiation therapy for metastatic cancer. Degenerative diseases in older people, such as muscle wasting, is usually the result of inactivity. This is known as “the rocking chair syndrome” following retirement. And it is certainly not inevitable.
In one study, individuals 80 years old and older were put on a weight-lifting program for four weeks. They had been mostly confined to beds or chairs. But in just two weeks of regular exercise, they improved their muscle strength to the point of self care! It is remarkable how resilient the body is, and how many repair systems can help us restore health…

Dehydroepiandrosterone, DHEA, is a natural hormone produced primarily by the adrenal gland. It circulates in the body in its water-soluble form, called DHEA-sulfate or DHEAS. First isolated in 1934, it has, for many years been considered of little importance.
It is now known to be an essential component in a vast number of physiological functions in the body, including metabolic conversion to both male and female sex hormones (androgens and estrogens), and to have an inverse relationship to the production of stress hormones.
As levels of stress hormones rise, levels of DHEA drop. Blood levels of DHEA start rising before puberty and usually peak between the ages of twenty and thirty. At that time DHEA is the most abundant hormone in the body.
Unlike other adrenal steroids, such as cortisol, DHEA begins to steadily decline with age, suggesting that DHEA may be a measure of the aging process itself.
DHEA levels have been found to be higher in healthy individuals than in unhealthy men and women, which has initiated research linking DHEA to healthy aging.
More than 5000 research papers have appeared over the last three decades, suggesting a connection between DHEA levels and a great variety of diseases.
DHEA is currently the focus for some of the most interesting medical research of this century. DHEA does not seem to be controlled by a “feedback loop”, as with other hormones, and supplementation is not likely to stop the body’s own production.
The Sincera® capsules provide the body with carefully selected proteins and mucopolysaccarides in a unique formula, where these key ingredients are combined with vitamins, minerals, and other anti-oxidants designed to work in unison with each other in a synergistic way to rebuild and maintain the skin in a youthful, good condition.
The main ingredients in the Sincera® capsules are proteins and mucopolysaccarides of marine origin that serve as building blocks for elastin and collagen in the skin, anthocyanidins known for their unique ability to inhibit collagen destruction and stimulate the biosynthesis of elastin and collagen, and silica that is an essential element in collagen.
The vitamins and minerals serve as nutrients and anti-oxidants, both protecting and repairing the skin of the whole body. Clinical studies have proven Sincera® to significantly improve the skin quality in regards to thickness, elasticity, color and smoothness and to show a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.
The skin becomes healthier and stronger while at the same time cosmetically more appealing.
The Longer Life Pills® is an exceptional set of pills that contains the essential nutrients for you to live longer. It is a scientifically conceived pill based on the best and most recent research specifically revised from Dr. Thierry Hertoghe. Only solid studies with significant results in humans, and not in other species, have been taken into account. The aim of Longer Life Pills is to give you a complete formula that will provide all the compounds and ingredients you need daily for a healthy and long life.
Ecological: these pills are devoided of any additives, and can in this sense be considered as “ecological”, toxin-free pills. The capsules or tablets that contain the nutrients are in safe, low allergenic material, generally from plant origin.
High-quality: all the nutrients are of pharmaceutical grade from the best sources.
Life-prolonging effects? How long can the persistent intake of these pills prolong life? Long-term efficacy of the multi-nutrient pills on human lifespan is difficult to evaluate as no study has been done of the effect of this particular set of pills on the life span. It is almost impossible to do for any product without a long-term 100-year study that starts in young adults and follows them up during the next 100 years until all participants have died. You and I would not be there anymore to wait for the results.
Nevertheless, what we can do is rely on the various studies that have shown significant 10 to 80% mortality reductions in people (healthy or sick) when they regularly take one of the nutrients present in the Longer Life Pills®. This evidence strongly supports the view that the regular daily intake of the Longer Life Pills® during years is not only safe but may prolong life from one to 18 years, provided the diet and lifestyle are healthy enough and do not oppose the life-prolonging potential of the longer life nutrients.
