A fascinating bit of health news last week…
Scientists in the Netherland have successfully reversed ageing in mice.
Now they’re planning human trials.
If you’re feeling stiff and old, losing hair or you’re just tired all the time, this could be the kind of breakthrough you’ve dreamed of.
The mice who took this drug treatment were old. They’d been around the block a few times. Or perhaps that should be “they’ve ridden a lot of wheels”.
Anyway, by the end of the experiment they had glossy coats of fur, bundles of energy and restored organ function.
The drug works by flushing out “senescent” cells. These are tired cells that have stopped dividing. They cause inflammation that’s linked to the ageing process.
I reckon there’s a serious scientific race on here…
Because at the end of last year I mentioned a Japanese study along similar lines, but using a compound called NMN.
“We have shown a way to slow the physiologic decline that we see in aging mice,” said Shin-ichiro Imai from the Japanese research team.
“This means older mice have metabolism and energy levels resembling that of younger mice. Since human cells rely on this same energy production process, we are hopeful this will translate into a method to help people remain healthier as they age.”
These guys are ALSO starting human trials.
So yes, the race is heating up.
But who is going to be first to produce a genuine anti-ageing drug?
And if so, how much will it cost… and how long will the likes of you and I have to wait before we get it?
Sadly, it may be that only today’s younger people who will get the true benefits of these pioneering treatments by the time they become widely available. They’ll also have to deal with the massive costs of extended lifespans – or face the fact that they might be working until they’re 80!
But what about you? What about right now?
What can you do today to reduce inflammation in your body to reduce pain and slow down the ageing process?
Well there is something you can do that’s low cost, wholly natural and just takes a little bit of preparation.
Because the answers could be in everyday food…
Can this popular takeaway food ingredient kill cancer cells?
While the drug manufacturers are pushing ahead with their wonder-chemicals, there are regular foods, herbs and spices that have similarly dramatic effects on your health.
For instance back in 2009, there was the dramatic news headline: Curry spice ‘kills cancer cells’
A particular spice found in many curries was being tested as a treatment for arthritis and even dementia. Now researchers in Ireland had shown that it could destroy gullet cancer cells.”
Think of it…
A regular everyday food that could help protect you from the threats of arthritis, cancer and dementia.
If you’d like to know more, take a look at this:
The Spice Healer is a fantastic little handbook of home cures for pain, inflammation, stiffness, tiredness and premature ageing.
It reveals how a spice like turmeric can do so much for your health.
From aching joints to dementia …
For instance, in September 2014 scientists found that a compound found in turmeric promotes stem cell proliferation and differentiation in the brain. They believe it could be the key to treating stroke and Alzheimer’s disease in the future.
The author of the study said:
“While several substances have been described to promote stem cell proliferation in the brain, fewer drugs additionally promote the differentiation of stem cells into neurons, which constitutes a major goal in regenerative medicine.”
So while the Netherlands and Tokyo teams are racing to create a new wonder drug for ageing, it could already be there in something we eat in a Saturday night takeaway!
Imagine being able to reduce your pain, loosen up your joints and sharpen your wits – simply by eating delicious good.
You can find out precisely how to do that if you take a look at Ray Collins’ Spice Healer, available here.
It also includes:
• The vitamin that ‘switches on’ your flu immunity
• The seafood that eases joint pain
• The natural ingredient that works as well as a cox-inhibitor
• The fruit that relieves asthma
• The spice that can stop a heart attack
• The garden weed that cleans your liver
• The tea that prevents blood clots
Well worth a look, and a highly entertaining read without any science jargon. Ray strips it all down to what you need to know, with all the recipes you need to carry out his tips.
