Smoking and Aging [Main Essay/Smoking, Ben Best/Smoking and Aging, Images/smoking and life expectancy; System One Smoking Impact Graphics; Links/smoking and aging, Images, Papers, Patents, Books, LibCong, Mortality Charts; Lung Cancer; COPD]: 25% of smokers live to 80, vs. 57% of non-smokers. Smokers have lower bone mass, lose bone more rapidly, and experience a higher fracture rate.
NAC (N-acetyl-cysteine) reduces the carcinogenicity of tobacco smoke. Lung cancer is usually caused by carcinogens such as benzopyrene in cigarette smoke or in marijuana smoke. Note that Panax Ginseng has an anticancer effect on cancers induced with benzopyrene. Also see Revel, A. et al. (2003), Resveratrol, a natural aryl hydrocarbon receptor antagonist, protects lung from DNA damage and apoptosis caused by benzo[a]pyrene, Journal of Applied Toxicology 2003; 23:255-61. Taurine, "an amino acid present in fish, is able to restore normal blood vessel function in smokers." (LEF). Nicotine from smoking constricts blood vessels and aggravates the effect of atherosclerotic plaque, increasing the likelihood of cardiovascular problems, heart attack, and stroke.

SNPs - Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms [Index/DNA Sequencing, Wikipedia, Links, Images, Video, Papers, Patents, Books, LibCong, Amazon/SNPs analysis; the SNP consortium; the Human Genome Variation Database; HUGO, Index/Cancer, Index/Carcinogens, Index/Gene (Human Genome), Index/Gene Therapy, Index/Zinc Finger Nucleases]. Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs) in the human genome can create different scenarios for nutritional supplementation and medical treatment. To date, nearly 10 million SNPs have been cataloged. See GeneLink, used by Solgar NutrigenomX, which provides a report on about 12 SNPs, together with tailored supplements from Solgar. See also Gene Essence, which prepares a personalized genetic information "Gene Essence Report" on about 90 medically important disease association SNPs through Biomarker Pharmaceuticals, using a DNA chip equipped with 1.8 million DNA probes to detect over 1 million SNPs. See GeneDx for diseases connected to SNPs, and also Courtagen for SNPs connected to diseases associated with the 1,100 protein mitochondrial proteome that are programmed by nuclear mitochondrial genes. For more complete SNP coverage of the human genome and other genomes, see Applied Biosystems/AllSNPs. Also see the April 2008 article Genetic Polymorphisms and Human Aging: Association Studies Deliver [Links/Genetic Polymorphism and Human Aging, Images, Video, Papers, Patents, Books, LIfeExtension, Amazon]. See also DNA microarrays [Index, Wikipedia/DNA_microarray, Links, Images, Video, Papers, Patents, Books; Affymetrix, Applied Biosystems/AllSNPs]. Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms should be correctable with Zinc Finger Nuclease (ZFN) technology for Targeted Genome Editing. Adenovirus transfection technology can sometimes put in a gene for generating antisense RNA to inhibit a bad gene, as well as allow the imbedding of a new gene at a unique site on the genome. ZFN technology should enable a broad selection of genome repairs. Diseases due to single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) include cystic fibrosis and sickle-cell anemia.

Sodium [Links, Images, Video, Papers, Patents, Books, LifeExtension]. A high-salt or high-sodium diet can lead to hypertension (high blood pressure), making strokes more likely. Furthermore, high salt or high sodium diets can lead to bloating due to water retention, making it difficult to achieve sharp definition for photogenic photos, movie work, or dancing. Bodybuilders may shed excess water with low-sodium diets, long workouts in sweat shirts, sauna, diuretics, and reduced water input in order to achieve sharper definition for contests or photos. Safety considerations in low-sodium diets and reduced water consumption are important when taking these steps to sharpen up.

Sodium 4-Phenylbutyrate and Sodium Butyrate [BIOMOL/HDAC Inhibitors, Links/HDAC
Both sodium 4-phenylbutyrate and sodium butyrate are useful for accelerating hTERT mRNA production by expanding chromatin for transcription activity, and improve the performance of many other telomerase activators, especially those that induce hTERT mRNA expression. Sodium butyrate hyperacetylates chromatin histones for chromatin expansion.
Sodium Butyrate reduces glutathione levels but "treatment significantly increases the activities of several antioxidant enzymes, including glutathione reductase, glutathione peroxidase, and catalase." - Louis M, Rosato RR, Brault L, Osbild S, Battaglia E, Yang XH, Grant S, Bagrel D. (2004), The histone deacetylase inhibitor sodium butyrate induces breast cancer cell apoptosis through diverse cytotoxic actions including glutathione depletion and oxidative stress, International Journal of Oncology, 2004 Dec;25(6):1701-11. Also, check out beta-hydroxy beta-methylbutyrate, a metabolite of leucine that prevents catabolism and binds in fat reduction. It may turn out to be an HDAC inhibitor. Beta-hydroxy beta-methylbutyrate is used by bodybuilders 2-3 grams 30 min before meals, 3-6 grams in pre- and post-workout meals. Check out other butyrate species. See Kosta Steliou, Michael S. Boosalis, Susan P. Perrine, Jose Sangerman, and Douglas V. Faller (2012), Butyrate Histone Deacetylase Inhibitors, BioResearch Open Access, V1, No.1, Aug 2012. Note that diallyl disulfide from garlic allicin has been described as an HDAC inhibitor equivilant for many purposes to sodium butyrate.

Soy [Links/Soy, Images, Video, Papers, Patents, Books, LifeExtension; Links/Soy Isoflavones, Images, Video, Papers, Patents, Books, LifeExtension; Links/Soy Protein, Images, Video, Papers, Patents, Books, LifeExtension; Links/Soy Food Products, Images, Video; Memory Enhancing Nutraceuticals]. See Protein, Phytoestrogens and Isoflavones. Soy isoflavones (genistein, daidzein) are phytoestrogens with a structure similar to 17-beta-estradiol. 15-20 grams of soy protein are recommended per day, (or 50-90 mg of soy isoflavones or phytoestrogens) to defend the body against cancer, cardiovascular diseases, osteoporosis, symptoms of menopause, and obesity-related syndromes such as type 2 diabetes and metabolic syndrome. 25 grams per day of soy protein can be used for cholesterol reduction; soy improves blood lipid profiles. Soy is anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and favorably regulates gene expression. (See Oscar Rodriguez, Is Soy Safe?, LEF, July 2010.) Estrogen receptors include alpha (ER-alpha) and beta (ER-beta) receptors. Genistein, a soy isoflavone, upregulates ER-beta receptors which seem to oppose carcinogenic factors promoted by ER-alpha receptors in breast cancer, ovarian cancer, and endometrial cancer. Licorice, a strong estrogen bioactivity nutraceutical based on glycyrrhiza, might be used with genistein to improve hip structuring speed, as the hips contain estrogen beta receptors. Genistein is also a telomerase inhibitor for cancer cells and is useful for treating prostate cancer. Perhaps genistein should not be taken while trying to activate telomerase, so that soy products should not be taken during the telomerase activation part of a telomere treatment cycle. (Check). The effect of soy isoflavones on nitric oxide synthase relaxes blood vessels, and their effect on genes is to upregulate detoxifying and antioxidant defenses, reducing LDL cholesterol and triglycerides, inhibiting pro-inflammatory cytokines, reducing cell adhesion proteins, inhibiting platelet aggregation, and improving blood vessel reactivity. Soy also contains phytic acid that reduces homocysteine, which is also lowered by soy isoflavones. Furthermore, soy prevents inflammatory oxidation of cholesterol by increasing the activity of the antioxidant paraoxonase 1 (PON1) found in HDL cholesterol. Genistein inhibits NFkB and inhibits the production of atherosclerotic plaque. In addition, soy isoflavones reduce the density of vital receptors for thromboxane A2, reducing platelet aggregation and inhibiting bloot clots. Soy peptides inhibit angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE), lowering blood pressure. Thus heart attack and cardiovascular disease defenses are improved by soy. I have gotten good results applying soy milk to facial skin and to bags under the eyes. "Topical soy has been shown to improve hyperpigmentation, elasticity, and moisture in the skin. In laboratory studies, soy has been shown to stimulate collagen synthesis and initiate the skin’s process of repairing elastin." - See Gary Goldfaden, MD and Robert Goldfaden (2011), Reverse Skin Aging Around Your Eyes, Life Extension Magazine, June 2011.
phosphatidylserine and phosphatidylcholine, both of which help reverse memory loss, are both available from soy. Note that lecithin (see soy lechithin and phosphatidylcholine) enhances the bioavailability of polyphenols, including resveratrol and quercetin.
Side Effects of Soy: Too much soy milk (1/2 gallon per day for two days) causes constipation, and burns the urinary tract throughout the last few inches of one's penis. This probably first suggested the name "Soy", a circumstance most familiar to experimenters. The "S" in soy (S for shapely) may be suggested by soy's genistein impact on estrogen-beta receptor expression applicable to restructuring for transsexual purposes.

Spices that function as NF-kB inhibitors are anticancer because the transcription factor NF-kB promotes genes whose products support cancer cell proliferation, invasion, tumor angiogenesis, and metastasis. See ginger, gingerol, and zerumbone. Furthermore, cinnamon bark is anti-viral (cures HIV), as is eugenol (a leaf oil from the cinnamon bush that cures both oral herpes (HSV-1) and genital herpes (HSV-2)), and garlic is anti-viral (cures HIV) and anti-bacterial. Spices like saffron, which inhibits the reuptake of serotonin a bit like Prozac, have been used to control satiety and appetite.

Squalene [Wikipedia, Links, Images, Video, Papers, Patents, Books, LifeExtension]. Often described as anticancer, present in shark liver oil and in olive oil. Squalene is the principal hydrocarbon found in your sebum, an oily substance secreted by the sebaceous glands in mammalian skin, where it amounts to approximately 12% of the total fat content. Squalene hydrates the skin, penetrating deeply to form a barrier against water loss that defends the face against fine lines and wrinkles. The amount of squalene in the skin decreases rapidly in one's 20s, making skin increasingly vulnerable to UV radiation, sunburn, dehydration, and wrinkles.
St. John's Wort [Links/St. John's Wort, Images, Video, Papers, Patents, Books, LifeExtension]. St. John's Wort is used for anti-depressive dopamine and serotonin level control.

The active compounds in St. John's Wart include naphtodianthrones and the phloroglucinols hypericin, pseudohypericin, and hyperforin. The dose recommended by the manufacturer is taken 3x per day. In addition, St. John's Wort shows activity against cytomegalovirus (CMV) via hypericin, a constituent of St. John's wort.
Statin Drugs [LEF, Wikipedia/Statin, Links, Images, Video, Papers, Patents, Books, LibCong, Amazon; Cholesterol; Atherosclerosis]. The statin drugs have been used primarily to control cholesterol , ,  to avoid or treat atherosclerosis in cardiology, and to prevent strokes. Statin drugs such as Zocor (Simvastatin) are often effective in closing telomere t-loops to halt senescence effects, but reduce CoQ10, so that statin drug users require more CoQ10. Note that CoQ10 is a life-extending drug and endogenous metabolic factor that helps mitchondria process fatty acids into ATP for energy. Therefore, taking statins without supplemental CoQ10 subtracts a life-extending substance and precious stores of energy, so that side effects including tired muscles and weak memory become evident, as muscular and mental energy fail due to lack of CoQ10. In addition, statins without CoQ10 would produce a shorter lifespan, as supplemental CoQ10 produces longer lifespans. See side-effects of statin drugs. Atorvastatin (Lipitor) can increase levels of TRF2 telomere loop closure protein like Simvastatin (Zocor), but is weaker. Finally, it turns out that TRF2 overexpression is not useful for life extension. Statins have been observed to provide an enhancement of the associated telomere protection biology [Paper, Books], but are often avoided due to certain hazards. In certain experiments atorvastatin (0.1 mol/L) and mevastatin (1.0 mol/L) both led to a more than 3-fold increase in the expression of the telomere capping protein TRF2 (telomere repeat-binding factor), as shown by immunoblotting. Simvastatin (Zocor) had the same effect on TRF2 expression at 0.5 µmol/L . The same team showed that statins can delay the onset of replicative senescence simply by inhibition of the nuclear export of TERT in endothelial cells . Today atorvastatin is available by prescription, but mevastatin is not used due to multiple side effects. The statin drugs are HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors that modify the rate control of cholesterol production , , . Uncapping of telomeres may be detected by the loss of TRF2, and the effect of the statins has been produced by application of exogenous TRF2 [Index, Links, Books, Papers], which protects human telomeres from end-to-end fusions. PARP1 interacts with TRF2 and is involved in repairing damaged telomeres. "As the length of telomeres in leukocytes shortened the risk of coronary heart disease increased... the risk was substantially attenuated by pravastatin [Links, Video, Books]. Since statins have been shown to increase the production of a protein-telomere capping protein (TRF2) that prevents telomeres from shortening it is a potential hypothesis that statins bring about their benefit by this mechanism. This is very early research but it implies that statins could well have the ability to slow certain aging processes." - ErinPharm Gazette, Jan. 2007. Simvastatin upregulates Bcl-2, a telomerase activator. I note that my friends have warned me not to meddle with statin drugs due to side effects [article, Books, Links] such as lowering the body's level of CoQ10. See:
___(1) Remove cellular senescence by closing telomere t-loops with statins, then
___(2) to lengthen telomeres with telomerase activators during the 2nd part of the cycle, might be useful to obtain quick rejuvenation with lasting effect. Perhaps we should picture treatment with telomerase activators in the 1st 15-day part of a monthly cycle, followed by 15 days of telomerase inhibitors plus Zocor (Simvastatin) for the 2nd part of each monthly cycle. This might possibly get faster rejuvenation results. In vitro tests of this idea plus relevant tests on human subjects featuring careful annual telomere length assays should be worthwhile.
"Overexpression of TRF2 causes telomere shortening in both telomerase-positive and -negative cells. Recent studies also showed that TRF2 also activates telomere degradation." (Cong, Wright, and Shay, 2002). This is discouraging for TRF2-based telomere loop closure therapy programs to lengthen life spans by using Zocor or other TRF2-enhancing drugs , , .

See Activate Your Stem Cells. Stem cells treated with small molecule telomerase activators such as astragalus extract or astragaloside IV exhibit extended lifetimes allowing them to divide and proliferate vigorously, so that stem cells become more numerous. However, stem cells have more potential cell divisions than ordinary cells in the first place, because they typically express telomerase when they divide. "Certain stem cells or germline populations are telomerase positive and have long or indefinite lifespans, illustrating that telomerase expression per se is not oncogenic." - after Andrea G.

Johns Hopkins researchers recently found that a lone brain stem cell in mice is capable not only of replacing itself and giving rise to specialized neurons and glia (astroglia), but also of generating two new brain stem cells. - Biosingularity, July 2011. Max Planck Institute for Brain Research researchers in Frankfurt and Max Planck Institute of Immunobiology and Epigenetics researchers in Freiburg succeeded in producing central nervous system cells from neural stem cells of the peripheral nervous system. If peripheral stem cells are maintained under defined growth conditions, they generate oligodendrocytes, which form the myelin layer that surrounds the neurons found in the brain and spinal cord.

Stem Cell Transplants [Links, Images, Video, Papers, Patents, Books, LifeExtension; Transplants of Immortalized (Stem) Cells; (8)]. Invitrogen and other firms have worked out procedures for transfecting cell lines using liposomes containing plasmids fashioned from transfection reagents. For instance, see the Invitrogen NEON transfection system, which is applied to the electroporation of liposomes bearing plasmids into various in vitro cultures of cells such as dermal fibroblasts or T-cells. This method might be used to prepare rejuvenated adult stem cells for stem cell transplant operations. See hTERT plasmid sources. Michael Fossel suggested using C-myc plasmids for activating hTERT, since there are two sites for C-myc on the hTERT promoter. For other possibilities (such as hEST1A) based on plasmids including genes improving hTERT performance in telomerase synthesis, see TA/Telomerase Activators [List]. Transplanted fat cells enriched in stem cells directing regeneration may be used to reconstruct breast tissue after surgery in breast cancer.

Stiff Back [Links/Treating Stiff Backs, Images, Video, Papers, Patents, Books, LifeExtension; (9)]. Old age stiff back and gait disorders are sometimes due to inflammation associated with TNF-alpha. TNF-alpha inhibitors such as luteolin (found in celery) may be used to alleviate stiff back. Anti-inflammatory drugs in general (such as fish oil) may be somewhat useful in treating stiff back. Boosting cerebrospinal fluid with supplements such as hyaluronic acid and SAMe may help. See also Joint Injuries, Glucosamine Sulfate, SAMe and Pain Medicine. Ibuprofen may be applied, although overuse is a hazard.
Stomach Cancer [Wikipedia, Links, Video, Images, Papers, Patents, Books, Amazon, LifeExtension; Cancer; Carcinogens; Anticancer Nutraceuticals, Apoptosis, Telomerase Inhibitors; Anticancer Telomerase Activators; Metastasis, NFkB, NFkB Inhibitors, Angiogenesis Inhibitors]. Allicin in crushed garlic can induce apoptosis in gastric cancer cells. Helicobacter Pylori [Images] infections (which produce ulcers) can produce stomach cancer (gastric cancer). N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) may be used to treat Helicobacter pylori infections leading to gastric cancerogenesis. Vitamin K2 is also useful in treating cancers, including stomach cancer.

Steroid Receptor Superfamily [Links, Images, Video, Papers, Patents, Books, Amazon, LifeExtension]. Simple steroid hormones are uncharged and diffuse directly through the cell membrane. Steroid hormones [Wikipedia, Links, Images, Video, Papers, Patents, Books] like estrogen or ecdysone (both telomerase activators), may be transported through the cell membrane and bind to steroid receptor superfamily proteins that can pass through the nuclear pore, bind to DNA, and activate transcription. Alternatively, some receptors are already bound to the promoter or enhancer region of a gene, and require the presence of a drug to bind to a receptor site to activate transcription of mRNA, which is subsequently bound to ribosomes in the rough endoplasmic reticulum to produce proteins or enzymes via translation with tRNAs. The steroid receptor superfamily are a family of nuclear transcription factors. Certain drugs (including perhaps telomerase activator cycloastragenol) can bind to nuclear transcription factors [Links, Images, Video, Papers, Books, Wikipedia/transcription factor] bound to gene promoters, or bind to nuclear transcription factors that subsequently become bound to gene promoters, activating gene transciption.

Atherosclerosis is one of the primary causes of stroke. Another primary cause of stroke is Hypertension (high blood pressure), which can be elevated by too much salt in the diet, or high cortisol levels due to stress. Old age causes veinous repair mechanisms based on adult stem cells to fail, causing the brain to become more vulnerable to stroke when telomeres are short. Senescent endothelial cells are also more adhesive to monocytes, accelerating the development of atherosclerotic plaque. There are:
__(1) stroke risk reduction nutraceuticals [Papers, Patents, Books, LEF; Atherosclerosis, Plaque],
_____Olive oil, oleic acid, magnesium (hypertension control), ashwagandha (cortisol control), vasodilators.
_____Policosanol (cholesterol and lipid control), green tea, black tea (lipase inhibitors),
_____aspirin, ginkgo biloba, fish oil (platelet aggregation inhibitors),
_____alpha tocotrienol (by induction of multidrug resistance-associated protein 1), and
_____tocotrienol vitamin E, which induces arteriogenesis in canine specimens .
__(2) drugs and procedures that reduce stroke severity [LEF], and
__(3) drugs and procedures that assist with stoke recovery [LEF].
See also ischemic reperfusion injury and supplements reducing ischemic reperfusion injury. Medical studies show that olive oil reduces the risk of stroke substantially. Intensive olive oil users in one study experienced a 41% reduction in stroke incidence. In another study, patients with the highest plasma levels of oleic acid [Images, Papers, Patents, Books, LifeExtension] had a 71% reduction in stroke incidence . NFkB inhibitors also reduce stroke risks . "Abnormal apoptosis of neurons is thought to underlie neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimers and Parkinsons diseases and stroke. Studies of cultured neurons have shown that TERT overexpression can prevent apoptosis in experiments relevant to the pathogenesis of Alzheimer's disease and stroke." .
Policosanol, found naturally in beeswax and sugar cane, is effective at reducing blood lipid levels [Papers, Books] for people with high cholesterol. Policosanol treatment improves outcomes in ischemic stroke.
High leptin levels are associated with stroke , , and may be reduced with melatonin, conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), L-carnitine, alpha lipoic acid, and omega-3 fatty acids.

Stroma [Definition, Links, Images, Video, Papers, Books, LifeExtension]. The supportive tissue around an organ secreted and maintained by fibroblasts [Index], which typically have a Hayflick Limit of 50.
Sugars [Links, Images, Video, Papers, Books, LifeExtension/sugars]. Bodybuilders have used simple sugars like dextrose (glucose), which are very rapidly digested, as insulin boosters. Honey is another fast-digesting sugar. They have been applied in post-workout shakes, ideally with pre-digested whey protein hydrolysates, to stop muscle catabolism after a workout and restore glycogen to muscle tissue. Since sugar damage such as glycation is dangerous, muscle catabolism is probably better opposed with cortisol inhibitors such as ashwagandha, creatine monohydrate, and DHEA. Whey protein isolates may be used with insulin elevation, but the whey hydrolysates support muscle synthesis better, and then elevating insulin helps the muscles absorb whey peptides and branched-chain amino acids. Note that keeping insulin high all the time can lead to metabolic syndrome, obesity, type II diabetes, and other fatso curses to be opposed with caloric restriction. Incidentally, fats are more fattening than sugars. In reality, the insulin elevation after a workout should not be applied from ingestion of sugars, which can cause glycation damage leading to Alzheimers Disease, but from insulin-boosting supplements such as gymnema sylvestre and fenugreek extract. Note that Larry Scott died of Alzheimer's Disease at 75, possibly traceable to sugar-boost insulin spiking.

Sulforaphane and Isothiocyanates [VitaCost/Sulforaphane and isothiocyanates, Wikipedia/Sulforaphane, Links/sulforaphane, Images, Video, Papers, Patents, Books, LibCong, LifeExtension/Sulforaphane; Links/isothiocyanates, Images, Videos, Papers, Patents, Books, LibCong, LifeExtension; Wikipedia/Broccoli_sprouts]. Molecular formula C6H11NOS2, Molar mass 177.29 g/mol. Sulforaphane is obtained from cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli sprouts, broccoli, Brussels sprouts or cabbages. "The enzyme myrosinase transforms glucoraphanin, a glucosinolate, into sulforaphane upon damage to the plant (such as from chewing). Young sprouts of broccoli and cauliflower are particularly rich in glucoraphanin." - Wikipedia/Sulforaphane. Sulforaphane in broccoli [25f], protects retinal pigment epithelial cells against photooxidative damage, is cancer-preventative, and helps suppress Helicobacter pylori, a bacterium that causes stomach ulcers and is associated with many cases of stomach cancer [Life Extension Magazine, July 2009]. Sulforaphane is used to prevent prostate cancer, as well as stomach cancer, inhibits breast cancer stem cells, and is generally valuable for its antioxidant properties. Sulforaphane is found in greatest abundance in broccoli sprouts [Links/sulforaphane in broccoli sprouts]. Sulforaphane acetylates DNA, expanding chromatin and promoting transcription from genes.

Supercentenarians [Wikipedia/Centenarian; Wikipedia/Supercentenarians, Links, Images, Video, Papers, Books, Amazon, LifeExtension]. Supercentenarians are over 110 years of age. Only 153 supercentenarians [Supercentenarian Counts] over 110 years of age are known to exist in the 18 major developed countries according to Robert & Vaupel, 2001, cited by the biology of aging [Books, Amazon] expert Robert Arking, although gerontologist Robert Young has found 696 claimants worldwide. Note that more than 56,000 Americans are centenarians over 100 years of age. The 122 year, 164 day world record holder in aging is Jeanne Calment (b.1875-d.1997). Supercentenarians are most likely to die in January and least likely to die in July [Ref].

(Ben Best), Superoxide Dismutase image, the 3 SODS, Superoxide Dismutase and Oxidative Stress, Links/superoxide dismutase, Life Extension mag on Superoxide Dismutase, , [48s], [49s]. Human superoxide dismutases include
SOD1 [cytoplasmic SOD,

Superoxide dismutase may be elevated with SODzyme [Images], GlySODin [Images], Huperzine A [Images], Ashwagandha [Images], or Chinese Wolfberry [Images] (GoJi Berry [Images]). SOD-mimetics such as MnTBAP [Images] (taken by injection only) and Wasabi [Images] are also useful. Also examine chaga, xango, wheatgrass, huperzine A, shilajit, and noni as nutraceuticals elevating SOD levels. Note that ashwagandha and bacopa both elevate the expression of endogenous antioxidants including SOD. Wheatgrass elevates both SOD and catalase.

Systemic Calcification [Links, Images, Video, Papers, Patents, Books, LifeExtension; Aortic Sclerosis, Aortic Stenosis, Arteriosclerosis, Atherosclerosis, Atherosclerotic Plaque, Osteoporosis, Calcium, Magnesium, Soy, Vitamin K2, Vitamin D]. I get the impression that: When calcium is low for normal physiological processes, the body may extract calcium from the bones for the task involved. If vitamin K2 and vitamin D are low then, the calcium does not go back into the bones, and systemic calcification with osteoporosis from robbing the bones of calcium may result. Soy can help prevent osteoporosis. Using a calcium supplement prevents the body from robbing the bones for calcium, and helps prevent calcification of tissues. A calcium supplement, Vitamin K2, and vitamin D help prevent aortic stenosis and aortic sclerosis, the "hardening of the heart" that can stop exercise from keeping the immune system up with endogenous telomerase activators. Thus Jack Lalanne, low on vitamin K2 from taking it only from vegetables and never from the superior sources Swiss cheese, Gouda cheese, or natto, and probably without a calcium supplement, wound up with aortic stenosis, tending to discourage the exercise that kept his immune system strong enough to deflect the pneumonia which finally killed him. Garlic might have been used to defeat the pneumonia, but then one smells like garlic, a fine sex repellant with fumes that pass through one like a gas. Furthermore, calcification of atherosclerotic plaque, making it more difficult to treat, or arterosclerosis from calcification of arterial tissues and or glycation from blood high sugar, may take place in the absence of vitamin K2, vitamin D, and a calcium supplement.
