  • GHRP performance (the role of growth hormone releasing peptides)

    GHRP performance (the role of growth hormone releasing peptides) A lot of people reading this are I am sure, aware of the ‘power’ of growth hormone (GH); a hormone that is secreted by the pituitary gland (see figure 1). GH is popular by those interested in antiaging medicine, especially since Dr. Daniel Rudman’s landmark published article in 1990 in which it was stated; “growth hormone reversed aspects of aging in some individuals by as much as 20-years.” (1) What ...
  • The New Russian Peptide Revolution

    The New Russian Peptide Revolution I was in Geneva at the Swiss antiaging congress in 2010 when I first heard Professor Vladimir Khavinson discuss this new peptide technology. As I began to try and comprehend the enormous consequences of his lecture, I will admit that at first I was apprehensive and found myself asking questions; was it too good to be true? Why hadn’t we heard anything like it before? So, as often in life, it seemed best to ‘sit on the fence’ and ‘w...
  • The Racetam Nootropic Drugs

    The Racetam Nootropic Drugs The racetam class of drugs have been approved in Europe since the early 1970s, yet they are still not approved in the USA, and they are unlikely to be approved in the US now since their patents have long since expired. Some nutritional companies are attempting to offer racetams in the United States, but since they do not meet the DHSEA (dietary, healt...

  • The theories and practice of antiaging medicine

    Abstract: The need to find any ‘cure’ is based upon discovering the source of the origin of the disease. This remains as true to antiaging medicine as it does to mainstream medicine. However the origins of degenerative aging are more difficult to ascertain as the problems appear to be multi-factional. This article sets out to briefly describe some of the most ‘forthright and treatable’ theories of aging, highlighting the fact that in order to abide by the po...
  • Improving Your Cardiovascular Health And How To Know How Hard Your Arteries Are

    Improving Your Cardiovascular Health And How To Know How Hard Your Arteries Are It’s amazing to think that as long ago as the 17th Century Dr. Thomas Sydenham wrote that; “a man is as old as his artery.”[i] It’s taken the best part of 300 years to prove that he was correct and yet even today arterial health is not as heavily ‘relied upon’ as other cardiovascular markers- for example cholesterol. Perhaps that’s because arterial stiffness measurement has been difficult a...
  • MinSaw-A, a New Topical Approach to Hair Loss

    MinSaw-A, a New Topical Approach to Hair Loss Over the last two decades there have been a number of novel approaches to treating (and hopefully curing) alopecia- or hair loss. One of the most successful of more recent times has been Minoxidil. It was accidentally discovered to be a hair-restorer when it was given orally to lower blood pressure! But it possesses the ability to increase the blood supply to the hair follicle when it is applied topically. Back in 1995, IAS discuss...

  • The thymus gland, immune health and aging

    The thymus gland, immune health and aging The thymus gland is small in size, weighing no more than 1.5 ounces and is located in the upper region of the chest. Its importance in the regulatory function of the immune system was recognised in the 1960's, when thymus gland removal in animals resulted in a distinct and progressive depression of the immune system and when left unchecked, usually resulted in the death of the animal from an uncontrollable infection. However, when thym...

  • The Future of Anti-Aging Medicine

    The Future of Anti-Aging Medicine 1. Is there a need for anti-aging medicine? Sometimes we hear the question: "What need is there for anti-aging medicine when people are already living too long?"

As such, they synergistically combine to become more effective than the sum of their individual parts alone. This combination "a...
  • Hair Loss - MinSaw-A ®, Nizoral ® and Dercos ® - The Bald Truth!

    Hair Loss - MinSaw-A ®, Nizoral ® and Dercos ® - The Bald Truth! The basis of hair growth and loss is based upon the 3 stages of hair follicle development, each hair going through an individual growing, resting and sometimes a dying stage. It is the individual follicles that die, this is self-evident by the fact that surgeons during hair-transplant operations are able to extract a "living" follicle from the side of the head and place it into the typical male pattern ...

  • Reducing the body's burdens- surviving on a poisoned planet

    Reducing the body's burdens- surviving on a poisoned planet Major and minor studies emanate every day that tell us just how much we have introduced all kinds of toxic chemicals into the environment.
