Like I always say, we all get two less than desirable options, get old or die young. I am working on a device to put your consciousness into a young body but so far it isn’t working that great so we are back to the two original options.

Since you are reading this, it looks like you have chosen the get older option. Our bodies give us the ability to keep interacting with this universe and like all machinery, need a little periodic maintenance and the more mileage they accumulate, more frequent and more intensive maintenance will be required.

At we are interested in helping you live that longer and better life, with extra emphasis on the better part. Of course, we see a lot of variety in this required maintenance but some things seem to hold true for just about everyone.

I am a fan of a continuous detox program in this world full of unpronounceable chemicals in our food and air. I have written frequently about glutathione and will continue to do so until it is common knowledge that we need to keep our glutathione levels up. Glutathione is the body’s first and best defense against toxins. The probability of resistance to disease and early death are directly linked to glutathione levels. Excellent studies find that toxins like lead and mercury don’t hurt you until the glutathione is depleted.

In our house, we use a lot of NAC (N-acetyl cysteine), at least one in the a.m. and one in the p.m. The body can use NAC to make glutathione. We also add ALA (Alpha-Lipoic Acid) to help the body produce the glutathione.

Next is keeping your body’s inflammation at a lower level using essential fatty acids. Countless studies have documented the wonderful effects of supplementing essential fatty acids. The best and cheapest source of these essential fatty acids (EPA and DHA) is fish oil. We have a number of excellent sources for fish oil but tend to default to Nordic Naturals in our house. If you find yourself burping fish oil after taking your supplements, you are probably taking cheap supplements. There is no short cut here. Your body will thank you for taking quality supplements just like your car thanks you for using quality gas and oil.

We do a lot of blood testing and it is rare to see adequate levels of vitamin D. For most people we recommend 50,000 IU’s of vitamin D3 once a week. Somehow the large dose with six days off seems to be more effective than moderate doses daily. We quote Dr. Joe Prendergast who has as much experience with vitamin D as anyone. You can learn more about Dr. Prendergast’s take on vitamin D on youtube.

To make taking your vitamin D easy, we carry BetterGenix Vitamin D3.

Remember vitamin D is really a hormone.

These simple steps along with appropriate changes in diet and exercise will help most people age much more slowly.
