  • Methylation and Methylators

    As we interact with our environment, there are definite changes in our epigenetic profile. This means that information from our surroundings (such as interactions with society and culture, use of internet, communication with people, reading etc.) is reflected on how our genes are ultimately expressed. Monozygotic (identical) twins who have been exposed to different environments have different epigenetic characteristics (1). Information from the environment has an impact on DNA methyla...

This means that information from our surroundings, (such as interactions with society and culture, the use of internet, communication with people, reading etc.) is reflected on how our genes are ultimately expressed.

  • Smart drugs and nutrients, an interview with Ward Dean, M.D.

    Smart drugs and nutrients, an interview with Ward Dean, M.D. Phil Micans interviews Dr. Ward Dean, who is perhaps best known to the public for his two best-selling books on ‘Smart Drugs & Nutrients’ (versions I and II) in the early 1990’s. Dr. Dean graduated from the US Military Academy at West Point in 1967, and served in the Infantry for six years, posted to both Airborne and Ranger forces. He obtained his medical degree from Han Yang University in Korea in 1978, and re...
  • A Patient's Assessment for Anti-Aging Medicine

      A Patient's Assessment for Anti-Aging Medicine By Marios Kyriazis M.D.   Ed.- Dr. Kyriazis is one of the UK's leading Anti-Aging Physicians and the founder and medical advisor to the British Longevity Society. He is also one of the few physician's worldwide who has conducted tests on aging but otherwise healthy individuals and the effective low dose use of L-carnosine, (as reported in the Winter 2001 IAS Anti-Aging Bulletin). Dr. Kyriazis spo...
  • Synergistic Programs - Blood & Heart

    Synergistic Programs - Blood & Heart Stage 1:Endozym-Med: Two tablets 1 or 2 times a day provides the strongest amount of nattokinase (natto) - a Japanese plant. Together along with a number of scientifically corroborated systemic enzymes, Endozym-Med promotes smoother blood flow. As one of America’s leading cardiologists; Kenneth Kensey, M.D. has acknowledged in his book; “the blood thinner cure,” it is blood viscosity that is the single ...
  • Synergistic Programs - Antiaging pack

    Synergistic Programs - Antiaging pack Antiaging is the ultimate preventative medicine As you might expect, antiaging medicine is by definition an incredibly broad subject. The American Academy of Antiaging Medicine (A4M) essentially defines it as the best of all the existing and emerging technologies, which can naturally mean a huge field. Here at IAS, whilst we can accept that there are many approaches to improving aging, from a walk round the block (e.g. exer...
  • Skin Aging: When the dimples become wrinkles

    Skin Aging: When the dimples become wrinkles While all components of the skin are affected by age without exception, some segments are more vulnerable than others. It is well accepted that components of the skin age at different rates and in different degrees. This is because of individual genetic variations, (mosaicism) which are superimposed upon variable external factors and influences such as sun exposure, diet and pollution (1). For example, the skin under the eyes may ap...
  • Idebenone, a Drug with a Myriad of Antiaging Benefits

    Idebenone, a Drug with a Myriad of Antiaging Benefits When the coenzyme (the active part of a vitamin)- CoQ10 was first discovered and discussed and found to have heart, blood and energy improvement it soon became apparent that it was a most important supplement. Now there is also a synthetic variant available called Idebenone, it has all the qualities of CoQ10 but with an even greater range and depth of protection. It protects the precious tiny mitochondria (the energy...
  • Idebenone - The Ultimate Anti-Aging Drug?

    Idebenone - The Ultimate Anti-Aging Drug? Idebenone (IDB) is a synthetic analog (variant) of one of life's most essential biochemicals, coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10). CoQ10 is an important antioxidant component of the lipid (fatty) membranes that surround all cells, as well as the lipid membranes surrounding the various organelles ("little organs"), such as mitochondria and microsomes, inside cells. CoQ10 is also an important member of the "Electron Transport Chain" (ETC) within...
  • The Mitochondrial Theory of Aging

    The Mitochondrial Theory of Aging The mitochondrial theory of aging (MTA) was first proposed in 1972 by Denham Harman, the "father" of the free radical theory of aging (FRTA) (1). The MTA was further refined and developed in 1980 by Jaime Miquel (2). There is such a strong connection between the MTA and the FRTA that they are often discussed together as if the MTA was just one f...
  • Aging and Immunity by James South

    Aging and Immunity We live in a world of entropy. Entropy is the tendency of complex structures to gradually decay or break down with time. Entropy is one of the brute facts of existence. It is "codified" as one of the basic laws of physics: the second law of thermodynamics, which governs both living and inanimate matter. We humans normally call the process of entropy "ageing." The anti-ageing movement is literally an anti-entropy movement. Modern science has discovere...
