Re: Bryan Johnson & His Longevity Protocol

[ Yes sometimes I keep an eye on him, I checked his lipid levels, and found it interesting that he is not bothered about his low triglycerides. BJ.jpg I found some studies saying that higher triglycerides may be protective. But I guess it might be just a track of APOE2 (low LDL, higher triglyceride...

Re: Bryan Johnson & His Longevity Protocol

He has some good advice. I started eating lentils because of him, so I owe him that. Frankly, his approach is expensive and very supplement heavy, and he doesn't always detail what specific supplements and foods helped to address what specific biomarkers, which makes the advice less useable than th...

Bryan Johnson & His Longevity Protocol

Not AD-specific, but of longevity interest. Is anyone aware of Bryan Johnson and his studies on longevity (on himself?) Just curious. Saw Dr. Joel Kahn interview him and it was all new to me. And does anyone know why his face and neck are spotted (at least in one video I saw.) He's the guy who "...

Re: Announcing a Personalized Precision Medicine Clinical Trial to Reverse Dementia

Dr. Bredesen likes Nutiva Organic Hemp Protein for purity, quality, and price. It has a slightly gritty mouthfeel so is best used in a smoothie. Julie, Found this old thread. At my age and with the amount of calories I need to eat to lose a pound a week, I'm finding it hard to up my protein without...

Without getting fancy with meters, it would be a level where, if you were exercising and talking on the phone, the other person would know you were exercising, but you would not be out of breath.
Thanks! I like the simple explanation! :lol:

Re: fasting glucose and a1c

Exercise will allow translocation of GLUT 4 transporters, this action will allow the cells to draw up glucose without insulin. The intensity of exercise makes a big difference. Zone 2 intensity (which I've posted on numerous times) appears to be a sweet spot where you get the GLUT 4 translocation, ...

Re: Gauging Interest in a Trial with Valter Longo, PhD

For this experiment, I'd lower fat and increase protein. The ketone production switch is insulin. Carbs and protein both spike insulin acutely with protein having about 54% of the impact of an equivalent amount of carbs. Because of the Randle Cycle , fat increases insulin by increasing insulin resi...

Re: Gauging Interest in a Trial with Valter Longo, PhD

My Thoughts on Insulin Like Growth Factor-1 (IGF-1) Your doctor is correct, older folks tend to need more protein, but is it a need for growth or is it a need for essential nutrients that we tend to not absorb as well as we get older? I suspect it’s the latter. So does this mean to increase the ani...

Re: Gauging Interest in a Trial with Valter Longo, PhD

~ means approximately. Since I was writing my post from memory & I didn't go back and check for exact values. Though I don't have time to go into detail. IGF-1 isn't necessarily a high is bad, low is good marker, in my understanding. I don't think we want it high all the time but IGF-1 is neede...
