It is prudent to take the supplements and drug listed below. These
articles of 4 pages or less set out the
benefits, and their embedded links to medical journal articles confirm the
A supplement is a chemical that is identical to one found in the
body, and is taken based upon evidence which supports its healthful benefits. A
drug is a chemical not natural to your body
or diet. As you get older your tissues
and organs have diminished functions; the bioactivity of the chemicals your
body makes are less; and the risk of age-related diseases increases. Because
the body’s reserves are less, the
benefits of exercise, healthful diet, and healthful supplements yield a greater
net improvement in health and the reduction in risk for age-related chronic and
acute conditions than the same 30 years prior.
For example a person who starts jogging at 60 for 10 years will on an
average benefit more than a person age 30 year for reduction in the risk of
heart attack and type 2 diabetes. One well-constructed
study of senior
male runners found that the runners as a group postponed disability 8.7 years and
“the control group had a 3.3 times higher rate of death” (81 versus 26 for the
runners). Given the lower bioactivity for
seniors, in most cases a greater dose should be taken, unless as with statins
side effects increase with dose. The
supplements below are safe, thus a higher accumulation in your body poses no
risk, but rather increases their benefits.
Big pharma essential controls the production
of information for their
financial benefit, thus they teach doctors through continuing education class that
they fund and in medical textbooks that supplements do not work, and they do tobacco
(deceptive) studies to “prove” it, or that they are dangerous (as with
estradiol, testosterone, and aspirin). Thus
you must put out of mind what is commonly said by the corporate media and
doctors on the healthful choices listed.
I have carefully sorted through the journal articles (ignoring pharma’s
tobacco science) for the best of the supplements. For each article I have spent
over 200 hours—the
embedded links provide journal evidence.
Though my search is incomplete, the short list of supplements is
sufficient, so that little additional benefit would be gained by adding more
supplements. The currently has the natural
sex hormones estradiol
with progesterone for women, for men testosterone, CoQ10, vitamin
C, fish oil
as a source of omega-3 fatty acids, and glutathione--in that order for benefits. Equally
important is the low carbohydrate
diet which can
reverse insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes.
To this added exercise that pushes you near to your cardio limit, and also
weight training. The only drug of major benefit
is aspirin at the 325
mg dose, or more. It prevents
cancer, atherosclerosis, and
increase cancer and heart attack survival.
In our corporate system profits dictates performance, thus perverse
results are the norm, and the amount of harm pharma does is tragic. Watch the
documentaries that expose
their perversion of medicine and nutrition.
The healthfully site is
dedicated to exposing the tobacco science and the healthful alternatives. You
are not too old to benefit from the
recommended changes; and their benefits increase with declining health.
