Exercise Your Brain with These 6 Creative Tasks

Have fun, hangout and try creative things with people around you.

FDA Evaluating Metformin As a Life Extending Drug?

If one wants to live forever, one of the major impediments we must tackle is cancer, and Metformin may be able to offer protection against what has come to be known as the “Emperor of All Maladies.” Twenty-seven clinical trials, involving 24,000, patients proved the efficacy of Metformin in the fight against cancers of the colon and rectum. Cancer patients using the drug experienced a 42% higher survival rate than those patients not using Metformin. Similar results were observed in patients involved in prostate cancer studies. In recent years, these studies have increased to include cancers of seventeen different body organs, using 21 different species of mice and 4 species of rats.

Niacin Supplementation And Longevity – Can Niacin Improve Our Life Span?

Other health benefits of niacin include promoting heart health and keeping cholesterol levels under control. Niacin improves circulation, reduces high blood pressure, and lowers blood sugar levels. Niacin is a powerful antioxidant, which removes toxic free radicals from the body and prevents aging. Niacin also lowers blood pressure, which means it can help lower blood sugar, which is helpful for anti-aging. The elderly often have poorer overall health due to the effects of stress and free radicals in their system.

Physical Activity and Exercise in Older Adults

The kind of exercise that older adults should try to do on a regular basis is cardiovascular exercise. This form of exercise will help to reduce blood pressure and improves the functioning of the heart and the rest of the circulatory system. The increased cardiovascular fitness also helps to improve the older adults’ gait. This means walking, jogging, stair climbing, running, or cycling for at least thirty minutes each day is recommended for older adults to help preserve their mobility.

There are many other benefits of aerobic exercise for older adults. Physical activity and exercise will help older adults feel good about themselves because they will be burning more calories than they are currently consuming through their diet and regular activities. The exercise will also help the older adults to maintain their weight loss program by keeping their body energized. Finally, participating in some form of exercise will improve their mental well-being because it releases endorphins – the same feel-good neurotransmitters that are released during times of extreme happiness or excitement. If you’re an older adult who needs to begin an exercise program to help you stay fit and healthy then you should start with a thirty-minute walk a few times a week either in the morning or in the evening.

DNA, Superfood, and Individual Body Chemistry

Seve from the gym can choke back a loaf of bread a day and still sport an amazing six-pack, while if you so much as look at a blueberry muffin your little pot belly expands to the size of a cauldron. Maybe you can blame it on your DNA, and now is the time to educate yourself about how you can adjust your diet by adding Superfoods that will better meet your fitness and nutrition goals. Let me give you an example. We all know that protein and nuts are keywords, and that nuts are an amazing Superfood, but, what some may not know is that nuts are also high in protein and fat content. This makes nuts difficult for your body to fully digest and if the fats and protein do not break down in the correct way, your immune system can be triggered to create antibodies that work to inflame the body’s sebaceous glands and cause pimples!

Bio-Hacking Part 1

Scientists have, for years now, been experimenting with how to treat the human condition at its most basic levels. That is, by altering the building blocks themselves, which make up our biology. While we are, at the moment, taking baby steps into this brave new world, it would seem inevitable that at some point in our future, near or far as that may be, science will tame our genetic code. Instead of going to the beauty parlor, will we simply be able to turn on a gene for blonde hair? Will we be able to live out extended lives in a disease free body, designed to our own exacting standards?
