The History of Alkyrol – Part 5b

…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.

The History of Alkyrol – Part 5a

The aging game (and more)

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).

eurohealth-alkyrol

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…

How to decrease the risk of heart disease

One major step in reducing your risk of cardiovascular disease is to stop smoking cigarettes! The number of free radicals generated in cigarette smoke is astronomical, extending far beyond the body’s antioxidant mechanisms.

Another important step is lowering your LDL cholesterol. How is this done? First, reduce total caloric intake, decrease saturated fats, and increase unsaturated fats, available in fish such as salmon and tuna.

Next, try to increase your exercise level. Consistent physical activity can lower LDL and increase HDL.

Third, you may need prescribed medication. Niacin, which is not a prescription drug, may be used when other methods fail, but you need 1,000 mg two to three times a day. At this level, it is best to consult your doctor before self-medicating.

alkyrol_cardiovascular_disease

Shark liver oil has not been shown to directly lower cholesterol. However, early studies show that alkylglycerols are potent antioxidants. They may protect against damage to heart tissue following a heart attack.

It would take a long-term study to prove that shark liver oil can help prevent cardiovascular disease, but the data on alkylglycerols strongly suggest they may help. Alkylglycerols can be used long term to help reduce the risk of heart disease.

In individuals with heart disease, they may protect against serious complications from heart attacks or heart damage. After a heart attack, the muscles of the heart are badly damaged and undergo a process called ischemia, or lack of oxygen. Ischemic tissue slowly dies if there is no return of oxygen.

However, when oxygen is delivered, it may have both good and bad effects. In the presence of oxygen, the ischemic tissue produces many free radicals that can further damage the heart tissue. Scientific research indicates that alkylglycerols can counteract these free radicals, thus protecting the heart against catastrophe.

alkyrol_heart_attack

We call this process ischemia-reperfusion. It is a serious complication occurring often on the third or fourth day after a heart attack. Even angina attacks can cause mild damage that may be aggravated by concomitant free-radical damage.

Alkylglycerols may help protect you against this occurrence. The key to understanding antioxidants and free radicals is the word “prevention.” If you have a sufficient amount of antioxidants in the body, it will be far easier to stay healthy.

If there was only one reason to take shark liver oil, it would be as an antioxidant, even though the benefits of shark liver oil beyond its antioxidant activity. Let’s look now at the process of aging, and how free radicals trigger the changes usually associated with old age.

Longer Life Pills® – Feeling better, Living better, Aging better!

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.

longer_life_pills_eurohealth

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.

Melatonin for a better sleep

Research reports on Melatonin:

▪︎ SLEEP/INSOMNIA/JET LAG/SHIFT WORK

Dietary supplementation has shown Melatonin to be a natural sleep inducer and a means to reset the internal body clock as needed for the relief of temporary sleep disturbances and jetlag.

Clinical studies have shown Melatonin to have an excellent effect on insomnia, jet-lag and shift work maladaptation, without the side effects of conventional sleeping pills such as “hang-over” and habit-forming use-dependence.

▪︎ IMMUNE DEFENSE SYSTEM

Melatonin buffers the effects of stress and reduces the gradual decline of immunity that accompanies stress. Researchers have demonstrated Melatonin’s ability to treat Cancer, slow progression of AIDS, make the body more resistant to colds, and protect the immune system from the toxic effects of chemotherapy.

melatonin_longevity

Numerous studies reveal that supplemental Melatonin can restore thymus gland function, boost immune function by increasing the production of T-cells, important to our natural defenses, and increase the body’s anti-tumor activity, particularly in advanced Cancer patients.

Melatonin also shows promise as a treatment for a number of other diseases and conditions, including Hypertension, high Cholesterol, various kinds of Cancer, Autism, Epilepsy, Migraine, Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, and Alzheimer’s disease.

▪︎ LONGEVITY/AGING/QUALITY OF LIFE

Melatonin has strong anti-aging properties. According to the experts, Melatonin has many vital functions in our body, therefore prolonging our life span. It is considered to be “The Policeman of all Policemen”, regulating the secretion of other important bodily hormones, governing the body at large and of course also the important aging process.

Many people take supplemental Melatonin every day for this purpose rather than for insomnia/sleep deprivation conditions. In such cases a dosage of 0.2 – 1 mg is normally enough.

melatonin_antioxidant

▪︎ ANTIOXIDANT/FREE RADICAL SCAVANGER

Melatonin has been shown to be an extremely potent and wide-ranging antioxidant, protecting every part of the cell in the body, including vital brain cells. Antioxidants are vital to our health because they rid the body of dangerously reactive molecules called free radicals.

Over 100 diseases have now been linked with free radical damage, including Cataracts, Macular Degeneration, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s, Arthritis, Cancer and the Aging Process itself.

▪︎ SEASONAL AFFECTIVE DISORDER (“SAD”)

Melatonin has been shown to be effective in persons with SAD, Seasonal Affective Disorder, which is caused by the breakdown of the circadian/body-clock rhythm.
