03:58 in dosing that I’m not accounting for in this podcast. That includes your age, your weight, your sex, your liver function, your kidney function, the reason you’re taking it such as disease states and whatnot.
05:48 So the first one I’ll discuss is good old fashioned vitamin C, oh my goodness. Vitamin C recommendations are based on you not getting scurvy.
09:52 Next one, Coenzyme Q10. Oh my goodness. Another name for CoQ10 is Ubiquitin. Ubiquitin means it’s everywhere. It’s everywhere in the body.
10:47 you can do a coenzyme q or ubiquitin level with your doctor and then know how to dose it appropriately based on that level.
11:11 Magnesium, honestly, one of my favorite supplements, if you heard the podcast on Allostatic load, you know, I’ve spent a lot of time on magnesium. Magnesium is responsible for over 300 different physiological activities in the body and most people are deficient.
11:39 when you’re checking magnesium, you can’t let your doctor check a serum magnesium. It has to be a red blood cell magnesium because this is an interest cellular mineral.
12:58 The next one, curcumin. Curcumin is the active ingredient in Tumeric, the Indian herb or spice. It is a medicinal compounds been used for thousands of years. It’s an as an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. It even claims to help with hair loss.
14:03 So again, specific to what we’re using for my next supplement I enlist his Boswellia. Now Boswellia, I love. Too great anti-inflammatory.
15:31 Red Reishi is the next one. It’s also known as the mushroom of immortality. It’s been used in traditional Chinese medicine for years. Its claim to help with immunity, so help your body fight cancer.
16:24 My next supplement in our little list is omega three fatty acids. These are awesome. Obviously, your best source of Omega three fatty acid is cold water fish, so your salmon a is the most well-known one, but it supports immune function, cardiovascular function, joint function, vision, metabolic function, mood, memory.
16:48 Fish oil, as a primary source of omega three fatty acids have been even been shown to increase telomere length.
18:37 The next supplement I’m going to suggest is resveratrol. Resveratrol, well again, one of my favorite ones again, and not because it’s one of the healthy ingredients in wine for you, smart Alex out there, but it’s found in several plants, grapes and berries and all those things. It’s been shown to provide age-defying properties, very similar age defying properties as low calorie eating.
20:00 Inositol Cysteine or NAC, N-A-C, and Inositol Cysteine is known by doctors and medical students and people in the medical world as the thing that treats liver toxicity. If someone overdoses on Acetaminophen or Tylenol, we use NAC in the ICU all the time because it’s the one thing that’s shown to help, save or help deliver in a acetaminophen overdoses, be they accidental or purposeful.
21:24 Phosphatidylserine, PS. Phosphatidylserine, your body can make it. And it’s kind of funny. We used to Phosphatidylserine is important in the formation of membranes and so it’s been, used in brain health for years. So much so, believe it or not, the supplement Phosphatidylserine used to come from cow brains, desiccated cow brains, true story. Now it’s more derived from cabbage and soy, but Phosphatidylserine used to come from cow brains. The problem with that
is they, there’s a disease called Creutzfeldt-Jakob, which is a prone disease or a small little virus type particle or protein that causes mad cow disease. So in humans, so we don’t do cow brain Phosphatidylserine anymore. Phosphatidylserine has been shown to improve athletic performance. I use it all the time in kids and adults with attention deficit disorder.
I’ve taken more people than I can count on all my hands and toes, off their Adderall or their Cylert, or their Ritalin with Phosphatidylserine, I just love it, helps with impulse control, hyperactivity, and really helps the brain focus and stress of exercise great studies in that and help him recover from exercise and preventing something called DOMES, delayed onset muscle soreness, foster title Syrian seems to help. We use it in depression or any mental disorders or mental clinic years prescribes a lot of Phosphatidylserine. And of course it helps with thinking. So I think it’s something that anyone who’s studying reads a lot students and whatnot can benefit greatly from Phosphatidylserine. So that was my top. Well, again, I’ve got to be careful with that. Those are 10 of my favorite, not all of them, but 10 of my favorite anti-aging longevity supplements out there.
