The above approximate calculations use (B/12)N, where N is the month number and B is the rejuvenation rate in years per year, to compute the model age. Model_Age = B(delta_t) + t0 = (B/12)N + 57.967123, for N=1, 2, 3, ...85 in the table. Treatment began May 1, 2007 before my birthday on May 13, 2007, so that t0 = 57.967123. May 12, 2007 was 58 - 1/365, May 1, 2007 = 58 - [(13-1)/365] = 57.967123. Leap years of 366 days (2008, 2012) have been ignored. Very small systematic errors that crept in are being removed. B = - 8 and -9 for TA-65, and B = -5.18684 (approximately B = -5.2) seems to be the new best fit to observations using astragalus extract for rejuvenation. Direct application of astragalus extracts to the scalp did not commence until January 2010. This was to be done for 15 days, followed by 15 days of treatment with the telomerase inhibitor and dihydrotestosterone inhibitor green tea, a refinement that did not commence until July 2010. A rejuvenation scenario of B = -5 years/year might also apply to scalp treatments. Oral consumption of astragalus extracts seemed to have little impact on the hair color, although they seemed to help with skin quality and elasticity. I think this was also observed and noted by Geron. Artandi Labs has noted that direct application of astragalosides helps to restore hair.

Deaging Plot Corresponding to the Above Table: See the 58th, 60th, 61st birthday photos.
Based on TA Sciences 8 years per year to 9 years per year rejuvenation rate results obtained for TA-65 at 5 mg/day using the Patton Protocol. B = - 5.2 years per year was initially estimated for astragalus extract, and B = - 5.18684 shows that this was close enough for the data quality available. All model ages in the above drawing correspond to May Day, as treatment started on May 1, 2007, whereas my birthday is on May 13, 1949. After 2.5 years at about 60.5 when bone dry I seemed to be 45 to myself, whereas with oiled hair I seemed to restaurant help to be 40 at 60. This led to the B = - 5.2 years per year estimate for the astragalus extract rejuvenation rate.


Deaging Plot Corresponding to Astragalus Extract Observations after about 2.5 years.
(From 58 to Model Age 45 at 60.5 in 2.5 years, projected to Model Age 25 at 64 in 6.33 years.)
The observed rejuvenation rate is computed at B = -5.18684 years per year, approximately B = -5.2, corresponding to the top line on the chart. At the present time, I may seem to be 45, so that at the B = -5.18684 rate I would achieve a 25 year old appearance at about 64.33 years of age in 2013. The dotted lines are for TA-65 at -8 and -9 years per year. Basic cost is about $55/month, including Chitosan, or $660/year, yielding $4,188 for 6.34 years to 25 at 64. Extra money might be spent on CoQ10, alpha lipoic acid with acetyl L-carnitine, magnesium, zinc, vitamin D, multiple vitamins, resveratrol for the off part of the cycle, and other refinements.


Anti-Aging Flight Plan (reminiscent of My World Line by George Gamow). Δt = 6.3 years.
Here Model_Age = Bt + Starting_Age, B=1 for normal aging, B > 1 for accelerated aging, B=0 for no aging, and B < 0 for rejuvenation, or negative aging. Here initially B= 1 for normal aging, then
B= - 5.2 years/year during the deaging phase, followed by B=0 zero aging until Madame Jean Louise Calment's 122 years, 164 days record is exceeded at 2071.9634 AD, which should be right at the Winter Solstice when shadows are shortest about Dec 22, 2071. About this time the S.Monocerotis skywalker above the Cone Nebula crosses the meridian.
Note the "Cross of Years" formed by the 110 and 122.45 barriers. There are thousands of Americans over 100, of whom hardly any will get though the 110 year barrier without medicine. See the associated response of the cloud cover to the inclusion of these charts including the sign of the cross in Visionary Sky 46.5. Note that the B = 0 line in the flight plan can be implemented by using astragalus extract one month out of six, which would lead to a barely discernable jaggle on the B=0 line between 25 and 25 + 5/12 = 25.42 with a five-month rise time and a one-month fall time, since (1/12)(-5.2) = -0.43.
Phase I: For 0 < t < 57.967123 = t0, B = 1, Model Age = Bt.
Phase II: For 57.967123 < t < 64.3, B = - 5.2 years/yr,
Model_Age = B(delta_t) + t0 = (B/12)N + 57.967123,
N = 1, 2, 3,...,76 months, using off-the-shelf astragalus extracts.
Phase III: For 64.3 < t < infinity, B = 0, Model Age = 25.

Results
November 2010 through February 2011 - During this 4-month period I plan to use 100 mg of Terraternal Astragaloside IV per day with 1-2 grams of extra chitosan per application for the first 15 days of the month, plus alpha-GPC (alpha-glycerylphorylcholine) working along a parallel pathway activating telomerase via the HGH secretagogue effect of alpha-GPC. Elevating Nerve Growth Factor with 4x (200 mg of alpha lipoic acid + 400 mg of acetyl L-carnitine) per day should also activate telomerase via Nerve Growth Factor production of Id-1 helix-loop-helix protein. In the 2nd two weeks of the cycle in which I use telomerase inhibitors, I might derive some hTERT phosphorylation benefit from resveratrol. In addition, I will be putting putting some GAIA Herbs Astragalus Root Extract in glycerin [Images] (Green Label, 30 drops per 1 mg astragalosides) on my scalp directly for hair follicle rejuvenation, and will follow this during the 2nd two weeks with direct application of a ticture of green tea to inhibit dihydrotestosterone, which causes hair loss.

September and October 2010 - These months I used a complementary sample of RevGenetics Astral Fruit NF [Images] for the primary telomerase activator, and putting GAIA Herbs Astragalus Root Extract in glycerin [Images] (Green Label, 30 drops per 1 mg astragalosides) on my scalp. The telomerase inhibitor part of the cycle is the last 15 days of the month, as usual. Astral Fruit NF contains a blend of Terminalia Chebula, Purslane, Astragalus Extract, and cycloastragenol. You just take one 523 mg pill per day, according to the manufacturer, but I took 2 per day for 15 days with up to 5 extra droppers of astragalus extract, which made me feel more confident. I really should have used chitosan to improve astragaloside bioavailability (as usual), but did not. My model age this month varies from 40.67 to 40.24, although the rejuvenation rate may have changed somewhat, probably within one binary order of magnitude.

May & June 2010 - May 1, 2010 was the end of a 3 year period of experimental application of commercially available astragalus extracts to rejuvenation technique. Results(April) indicate that deaging rates on the order of B = - 5 years/year may have been observed, but certainly not B = -8 or -9 years per year, as observed with TA-65 at TA Sciences. An "over 40" look clings to me somewhat, instead of a 30-to-33 look. This month I am planning to apply 2 weeks of 5 droppers/day of Herb Pharm Astragalus Extract, plus 6x200 mg/day of Solaray Astragalus Extract capsules, plus 4x250 mg/day of Natural Balance Chitosan to improve astragaloside bioavailability. In addition, I decided to take 3x400 mg/day of Solaray Astragalus Root in capsules along with this, which is thought to further improve the bioavailability of astragalosides. Astragalus was on special this month. However, GAIA Herbs Astragalus Extract in glycerin was sold out, so that I will have to apply this to my scalp during the last 2 weeks of the month rather than during the 1st 2 weeks. I also decided to use the third week to experiment with NOW FOODs IGF-1 Liposomal Spray [Links] to elevate telomerase activator IGF-1, using 3 doses/day of 2 sprays per dose, as recommended by NOW FOODS. The IGF-1 liposomal spray tastes delicious and a bottle contains enough for 31 days of treatment at 6 sprays/day (3 servings/day), at a cost of less than $30/bottle. That is, using NOW FOODS IGF-1 liposome spray for 2 weeks out of 4 costs less than $15/month. However, how rapidly it works to lengthen telomeres is unknown to me, so that it's rejuvenation constant B in years per year is presently unknown. (June 22: After 2 months of 6 sprays/day for 15 days of each month, the bottle of NOW FOODS IGF-1 Liposomal Spray was still half full.) During weeks 2 and 3 I will be using whey protein, which elevates HGH levels and heightens telomerase activator IGF-1 after HGH is converted in the liver to IGF-1. Last month I used colostrum in LimuZ Nei for EGF telomerase activation during the third week, but I am out of it and will not use it in May. This month I also learned from Muscle & Fitness Magazine that 7-10 grams of arginine prior a workout not only elevates nitric oxide by the action of nitric oxide synthase, but also elevates HGH, which produces the telomerase activator IGF-1. The 4th week of May will feature application of telomerase inhibitors such as melatonin, fish oil, green tea extract, silymarin, cocoa, quercetin, chocolate, dietary polyphenols, and resveratrol. June was the same plan as May, but I added Solgar Norwegian Shark Liver Oil Complex [Index], 500 mg/day. In August I plan to use shark liver oil again, not using it in July. High polyphenol diets were reported as being telomerase-inhibiting, due to the generation of telomerase inhibitors by the digestive process, therefore I have started to confine high polyphenol foods to the 2nd 15-day part of the 30-day cycle, when I try to inhibit telomerase.


April 2010 - This month I added LimuZ NeI with Colostrum to my customary astragalosides (astragalus extract) telomerase activation cycle during the telomerase-on first two weeks of the month, before remembering not to take both at the same time. Colostrum contains the telomerase activator EGF. However, this will just be for April and part of May. I am taking 2 6.1 gram packets a day according to the manufacturer's instructions. It includes Acetyl L-Carnitine, Colostrum, Zeolite, and Limu (Laminaria japonica) standardized to 85% N-acetyl Glucosamine. I am continuing to apply GAIA Herbs astragalus extract in glycerin to my scalp during the first two weeks, in addition to my usual oral dose of astragalus extract from Solaray (6x200 mg) with 5 droppers of Herb Pharm astragalus extract, taken with 1 gram of Natural Balance Chitosan to improve bioavailability. This month telomerase inhibitors for the 2nd part of the month include fish oil, resveratrol, melatonin, and green tea extract.
My notes explain that to take astragalosides and colostrum at the same time is dangerous, so I have decided to change my approach this month and take colostrum-constaining LimuZ NeI during the third week only, after taking my astragalosides for two weeks, and to apply telomerase inhibitors only during the 4th week until I have exhaused my supply of LimuZ NeI. So for a short while I will use 3 weeks of telomerase activation followed by a week of telomerase inhibition, so that astragalosides are used for 2 weeks, followed by a week of colostrum-containing LimuZ NeI, followed by a week of telomerase inhibitors.

February 24, 2010 - This month I have added cyclic topical application of astragalus extract in glycerin [Images] to the scalp based on favorable results at Artandi Labs and elsewhere. In the long run, I expect more favorable results on the hair follicle microenvironment, with superior reversal of hair loss and greying problems [74s]. This month I used 5 droppers full of GAIA HERBS Astragalus Extract in glycerin per daily application, applied directly to the scalp, then rubbed in with the fingers. Recently Vince Giuliano reported hair returning with astragaloside IV use. It might be better if astragalosides were applied in a vitamin C skin cream designed for the scalp. So far, I am not using a telomerese-inhibitor scalp skin cream for the 2nd half of the application cycle. Vitamin E skin oil looks like a good choice for this role. As for the GAIA Herbs Astragalus Extract in glycerin, it is the weakened version that I fear is suboptimal by comparison with the former product, now rated at 30 drops per 500 mg crude herb equivalent, about 1/13 as strong as the former offering, if I am not mistaken.

Until February 2010, I have applied nothing directly to my scalp regularly other than extra virgin olive oil and Minoxidil to oppose hair falling out. I note that Artandi Labs got favorable results for regrowth hair restoration by applying telomerase activators [Index, (7)] directly to the skin or scalp of aging experimental animals. They used astragalus-related telomerase activators in their experiments. Several possibilities exist for
Hair Degreying and Regrowth with Telomerase Activation.
(1a) Probably Terraternal Astragaloside IV skin cream is the optimal scalp rub for rejuvenation of hair [74s, Index H] based on telomerase therapy for senescent cells in the scalp.
(2a) Astragalus Membranaceus Root Extract in glycerin should also work for reviving the hair follicle microenvironment with telomerase activation [Links]. I applied this one time with no adverse results.
(3a) NOW Foods Liposomal IGF-1 Spray might be applied to the scalp to induce the required scalp rejuvenation, as virtually all cells respond to IGF-1 (TA/IGF-1). Vitamin D should also be taken.
(4a) Progesterone skin cream [Links, Images] might be applied exclusively to the scalp to get the benefits of progesterone telomerase activation (TA/Progesterone) to rejuvenate the hair follicle microenvironment. Of course, this will probably not get enough progesterone into the blood stream for global feminine transformations to occur, but will probably exclusively impact the scalp.
Hair Regrowth by Opposing Dihydrotestosterone (DHT)
The above 4 possibilities should help restore any lost or thinning hair. However,
(1b) Dillons supplies an inexpensive brand ( < $7.00/month) of Minoxidil solution. The Dillons brand of Minoxidil resembling Men's Rogaine is designed to restore thinning hair, although it is especially recommended for a bald spot at the top. [74s]. Minoxidil works by opposing DHT, dihydrotestosterone.
(2b) Saw Palmetto with Beta Sitosterol is also used to oppose DHT, as are
(3b) Finasteride and
(4b) Dutasteride.
(5b) Green Tea turned out to be a 5-alpha-reductase inhibitor that can stop the formation of dihydrotestosterone, so during the 2nd two weeks of the month I put green tea on my scalp from a plastic bottle of green tea brewed on the stove, starting in July, 2010. Green tea is a telomerase inhibitor, so instead of putting it on my scalp the 1st two weeks of the month, I try to use GAIA Herbs astragalus extract in glycerin when I can get it for telomerase activation during the first two weeks.
This might provide better results for the hair and scalp than relying exclusively on telomerase activators [Index, (7)] absorbed from the blood after supplement digestion, which works slowly, although it does seem to have some good effect. I get the impression that applications directly to the scalp are somewhat more effective for the hair and scalp than potions or pills orally quaffed from bottles, which may be best for tissues in general.

In August I added five droppers of Herb Pharm astragalus root extract to 6 Solaray Astragalus Root Extract 200 mg capsules for each day (1200 mg), theorizing that Solaray, which does not quote its astragaloside content in its specification, but only its polysaccharides, might be better applied with astragalosides from the Herb Pharm astragalus root extract, a "5-to-1 menstruum" prepared with ethanol and water. I used 4 x 250 mg capsules per day (1 gram) of Natural Balance Chitosan to improve bioavailability of the astragalosides, taking all the activators and Chitosan together at the same time just before bedtime. The plan is to do this for 15 days before returning to telomerase inhibitors such as resveratrol and melatonin for the final days of the month. I could use half of one $12.00 bottle of Natural Balance Chitosan bottle in this program each month, so that the telomerase activation part of program costs about $56.00/month.

See The Astragalus Extract Rejuvenation Program at the 2 Year Point. After 25 months, I am still faintly uncertain about my progress in reverse aging using this technique featuring 5 mg/day doses of astragalosides half of the month. Just after getting out of the shower in the morning, my hair looks nearly black. Late at night and dried out, it seems to have a bit too much grey in it again. The dark moist look can be maintained with a little oil, however. Furthermore, when questioned, kids usually guess my age at about 40 years. I note that Geron recommended 50 to 100 mg of astragaloside IV per day, so that perhaps doses featuring 10x to 20x what I am using would be more effective, especially as purified preparations with consequently fewer side-effects. I may now seem to resemble my model age on the chart above much of the time, but I suppose results will be more definite 2 years from now, when the model age should satisfy 25.2985 years < Model Age < 29.6985 years and my chronological age is 62. Of course, the telomeric DNA repair enzyme telomerase will not quite fix everything, and one's teeth still require treatment to defend against attrition and decay, but defending cells against replicative senescence should cover for many kinds of old age defects, as rejuvenated adult stem cells repair aging tissues and telomerase-activating astragalosides revive many other kinds of aging cells.

Hair wetted and oiled, Green finds scope for hope in his method.

Sunday May 30, 2009 - With no oil and no water in my hair this afternoon, I see quite a bit of grey in it. On the other hand, with olive oil and/or water in it, it looks quite dark, for instance after a shower. The darkening of brunette grey with such tricks may have something to do with the popularity of baptism and "thou anointest my head with oil" in the Old Testament. I am tempted to double the dosage try 10 mg of astragalosides per day for a change and see if that works any better than 5 mg on a 15 days on, 15 days off cyclic basis.

Astragaloside Sources
The original source for the 5 mg/day astragalosides was GAIA Herbs Astragalus Root Extract, which featured 1 mg of astragalosides per 30 drops, so that 150 drops per day were used on a cyclic basis (2 weeks on, 2 weeks off) until March, 2009. Unfortunately, GAIA Herbs decided to use a formula weakened to about 1/13 of its original strength. This motivated me to switch to 1200 mg/day Solaray Astragalus Extract, which I computed covered the 5 mg/day astragalosides requirement for this test. In fact, subsequent calculational checks always yielded numbers less than 20 mg, but with an uncertain lower limit, as the information on Solaray astragalus extract is inadequate and may not be typical. The 1200 mg of Solaray astragalus extract was taken on a 15 days on, 15 days off basis using 3 bottles of thirty 200 mg capsules each, so that 6 x 200 mg caps/day was taken each day. This seems to be compatible with astragalus dosage limits, although it exceeds Solaray recommendations. Other sources exist, of course. In fact, I took to supplementing the 6 x 200 mg capsules of Solaray Astragalus Root Extract with 5 droppers full of liquid Herb Pharm Astragalus Root Extract, to make sure I was not just getting my astragalus polysaccharides, but some astragalosides, too. See Longevity Supplement Vendors. Another solution to achieve 5 mg astragalosides per day is Herbal Remedies Astragalus Root Extract, 1.25 mg astragalosides per 250 mg cap, via Nature's Way, ( Standardized 0.5% Astragalosides ), 60 VCapsules per bottle, incuding Astragalus Root, dried extract 250mg (root) 0.5% astragalosides, with Astragalus (root) 250mg. Four capsules yield 5 mg astragalosides plus 1 gram of astragalus membranaceus root, which improves bioavailability. I note that astragalus root contains 0.15 mg/gram astragaloside IV, and that the maximum dose given in Chinese medicine was 33 grams of root, yielding 4.95 mg of astragaloside IV, corresponding to about 4.95/0.093 = 53.225 mg total astragalosides. Doses of up to 60 grams have been reported.

Threshold Doses, Simulations, and Elevated Dosages

It might be better to start out with higher doses of astragalus extract to exceed any thresholds that may exist for telomerase activation, then to use smaller doses. I note that telomerase has a half-life of 24 hours once it has been created. Simulations with superimposed exponentially decaying concentrations of telomerase exhibiting a 24-hour half-life and initial height proportional to the dose of astragalus extract may be useful in envisioning an optimum program of application. Time integration over the total telomerase concentration might be used to estimate telomere growth.
The maximum dose of astragalus root used in Chinese medicine, 33 grams correponds to 33 x 0.15 mg of astragaloside IV = 4.95 mg of astragaloside IV. If Solaray Astragalus Root extract were a typical 10-to-1 extract, then half a bottle of 15 capsules would yield 200 x 15 mg of extract, or 1.5 x 3 grams = 4.5 grams of astragaloside IV, corresponding to about 4.5/0.093 mg = 48.39 mg of total astragalosides. Then 12 days of treatment would cost about 6 x $8.50 = $51. One might wait for several days for telomerase levels to come down before applying telomerase inhibitors like resveratrol, green tea extract, silymarin, and garlic for the balance of the month. To get bioavailability up, perhaps 1 gram of chitosan should be taken, and the dose should be applied after exercise to elevate interleukin 6 and get the Hsp90 heat shock protein level up for transport of the telomerase activator into the nucleus of the cell. On the other hand, for more effective treatment though mail-order sources on credit, RevGenetics offers 100 mg capsules of astragaloside IV (Astral Fruit) packaged with 5 mg of chitosan at 30 caps for $50.00, and Terraternal also offers 40 mg astragaloside IV capsules, 30 capsules for $40.00. TA Sciences TA-65 is not presently available like a mail-order drug, but is only available together with an evaluation program including measurements of telomere length, although a program is available from a number of physicians.
It seems clear that cellular aging in the future will be preventively treated, so that aging will not be observed after some arbitrary point, say 25 years of age. About two months of treatment per year using astragaloside IV, TA-65, or astragalus root extract will be required, plus continued attention to DNA defense with antioxidants and antiglycating drugs and careful attention to dental care, diet, and exercise.

Reducing Cancer Probablility with Telomerase Activation
Since many cancers up-regulate telomerase as a part of their program for cellular proliferation, there is some concern that telomerase activation may promote cancer. However, if one does not have cancer in the first place, long telomeres make the patient more immune to cancer, especially in the case of cancers directly related to telomere shortening to the point of M2 crisis, as in epithelial carcinomas such as breast cancer and a subset of the epithelial cancers, the adenocarcinomas of glandular tissue. That is, if you do not have cancer, activating telomerase with medicines like astragalus membranaceus extract definitely reduces the probability that you will get cancer. However, dangerous, poisonous compounds such as arsenic exist that also activate telomerase, but which have carcinogenic properties, so that they should be avoided. In general, avoid dietary fat from beef that feeds bacteria that create carcinogens responsible for colon cancer [Index], and avoid burned meat or burned chicken, which may contain carcinogenic benzopyrenes and polycyclic hydrocarbons. If one protects one's DNA with antioxidants and antiglycating drugs, such cocoa powder (antioxidant), vitamin C (antioxidant and antiglycating), vitamin B1 (antiglycating), and vitamin B6 (antiglycating), one can reduce reactive oxygen free radicals (ROS) to avoid damaging DNA and inducing cancer. Broccoli sprouts containing sulforaphane are also antioxidant and cancer-preventing. Following an anticancer diet and avoiding carcinogens should make it safe to use telomerase activation half of the time. Furthermore, telomerase activation from astragalus extract is quite gradual, and probably should not be confused with pouring gasoline on a fire when a cancer does exist. Cellular targeting techniques involving pathways other than the telomerase pathways can probably used to treat most cancers, so that one could use telomerase activation (7) to treat aging while using alternative methods to manage cancer. In any case, it seems safe enough to use cancer-preventing strategies while using telomerase activation, since hTERT is not an oncogene. Keeping telomeres long with telomerase activators prevents carcinomas arising from telomere fusion, while telomerase inhibitors induce apoptosis in cancer cells and shrink tumors, especially when given with angiogenesis inhibitors.
Note that some drugs that are beneficial in anti-aging medicine are telomerase inhibiting, such as resveratrol, green tea, quercetin, garlic, silymarin, cacao products including cocoa & chocolate, dietary polyphenols, and vitamin E. The program of cyclic telomerase activation that I use avoids mixing telomerase activators and telomerase inhibitors at the same time. Instead, one uses telomerase activators for 2 weeks, then telomerase inhibitors for two weeks. However, I use nitric oxide telomerase activation for endothelial cells all month long, using 5 grams/day arginine and 200 mg to 1000 mg per day citrulline with exercise to promote nitric oxide formation favorable to endothelial rejuvenation, which reduces the probability of atherosclerotic plaque formation leading to cardiovascular disease, heart attack, or stroke.

Skin and Complexion
By Christmas 2009 I have very few wrinkles, but then I have the habit (following Jeanne Calment) of using extra virgin olive oil on my skin, or grapeseed oil on my face. The grapeseed oil is thought to be very good for eliminating wrinkles around the eyes, and is rich in antioxidants and grape seed polyphenols. The degree to which telomerase activation (7) via hTERT activation using astragalus membranaceus root extracts is responsible for my present lack of wrinkles is not perfectly clear because I have taken these precautions regarding my skin. Also, blemishes, keratoses, and skin lesions have been systematically removed by freezing with Compound W Freeze Off (obtained from Wal-Mart), which is equivilant to tissue removal with liquid nitrogen or cryogenic surgical technique.

Reprogramming Height
[Links/Height supplements (Images, Video, Papers, Patents, Books), Links/growing taller, Wikipedia/epiphyseal plate, Links/hyaline cartilage in long bones]
Finally I get the impression that DHA (docosahexanoic acid) from fish produces high dopamine levels leading to high HGH (human growth hormone) levels that typically produce greater height from a seafood diet. Some fish, such as salmon, are higher in DHA than others, and are therefore more effective for producing height gains during growth and development. This is how fish fat high in DHA mixed with flavorings and taken on crackers could be used to produce greater height in maturing youth in places like St. Petersburg, Russia. Salmon oil is the best fish oil for DHA popularly available. In addition, DHA is brain food that helps the brain grow, and it also protects the eyes, which are rich in DHA. Other factors, such as buttermilk high in vitamin K2, can help with bone development. I get the impression that height was improved on the farm by eating the eyeballs of cows, which feature retinal tissue very rich in DHA. The brains of cows are also rich in DHA and were available to farmers such as Abraham Lincoln. Lincoln could also make bone meal from the bones of very young animals, making optimum use of livestock for height development.

There are some reports that higher iron levels during the human growth and development phase tends to prevent anemia that retards growth and so leads to superior oxygenation of developing tissue. Kids that get sufficient iron for targeted growth may resemble "The Man of Steel" by comparison with children on low-iron diets. The taller Normans liked to present themselves to the English as "beefeaters", and beef is a high-iron diet, although iron-rich foods such as beans and lentils can also correct anemia. On the other hand, high iron levels can lead to iron deposits in the brain and accelerated free radical reactions (Fenton reactions) in old people resulting in inflammation and producing Alheimer's Disease, cancer, and heart problems. During teenage bone growth, fish with high arginine and ornithine, or direct supplementation with HGH secretagogues [Images], helps elevate HGH levels for superior bone growth.

It may be possible to take one's model age back with telomerase activation techniques to less than 25 years, when the epiphyseal plates [Links] shrink to epiphyseal lines [Links], perhaps to 17-18 years, then lengthen the bones [Links] with HGH growth hormones from whey protein, plus vitamins from pills and bean salad to cause the body to gain in height. Vitamin K2 stimulates new bone formation. This may be the reason my father tried buttermilk for improving his height. Buttermilk, a cultured milk that tastes like cheese, has relatively high vitamin K2 content for mobilizing calcium to build bone matrix, and milk contains plenty of bone-building minerals. In my neighborhood milk is further enriched with bone-matrix-building vitamin D by the state. Both Vitamin D and Vitamin K are essential in bone mineralization. Vitamin C is required for the synthesis of collagen in bone structure.
___(1) Alpha-glyceryl-phosphorylcholine [Images] at just 600 mg can boost peak HGH during weight training by 44 times, when taken 90 minutes prior to lifing weights, but a placebo before training causes HGH to go up by about 3 times. The 500 mg dose is low; 5-9 grams of arginine is required to powerfully boost workout HGH. (after Muscle and Fitness Magazine, Summer 2010, The Ultimate Supplement Handbook).
___(2) Arginine + Lysine at 1500 mg of each increases HGH secretion acutely when at rest, so that these are taken together 1st thing in the morning, afternoon, and at night.
___(3) GABA (Gamma-aminobutyric acid) is an amino acid and a neurotransmitter which substantially elevates HGH when 3 grams are taken prior to lifting weights, when GABA can improve HGH levels by a factor of 4.
___(4) Melatonin taken at 5 mg 60 minutes prior to a workout elevates HGH levels.
Muscle and Fitness Magazine recommends a GH (HGH) stack including all 4 of the above measures applied in parallel.
Note that excess human growth hormone leads to vertical bone growth if the epiphyseal plates at the ends of long bones have not yet closed, but it leads to lateral growth characteristic of acromegaly if they have closed to epiphyseal lines, which they usually do after age 25. In any case, the nutritional techniques described here should be useful to youngsters interested in increasing their height. According to Life Extension Magazine (March 2009) CDP-choline [Links] can amplify HGH levels by a factor of 4, which might make it very useful for bone growth applications. Supplementation with L-Arginine and Ornithine [Images] can produce a large increase in growth hormone secretion lasting many hours [Links]. I note that coastal peoples who in their formative years eat fish, which contain both arginine and ornithine, are usually taller than natives that live inland and do without fish. There is a scene in Alexander Nevsky by Sergei Eisenstein in which Alexander explains how to get taller for the rigors of medieval battle by eating lots of fish, and the method seems to have penetrated Russian literature, perhaps in Pushkin, so that the scholarly "Soviets" knew the secret of height by reading, towering as Communist reader-writers over smaller illiterate Russians and foreigners who didn't know how. In addition, one could let natural selection take its course, favoring taller men when required. Was Russian fish richer in arginine and ornithine than Japanese fish? Grape seed extract promotes bone formation [Links]. Also, dried plums improve markers of bone formation [Links, Papers]. See growth factors in lengthening bone [Links] and hormones in bone lengthening [Links]. Under some circumstances, it seems possible to cause man to grow throughout his life like a lobster [Wikipedia, Leonid Stadnyk (Links), also Wikipedia/Gigantism], although this is not the most compact, fuel-efficient approach. However, it may be desirable for social reasons to maintain average height in your community, although it increases the demand for food and may net you the long-limbed "Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars" look familiar from Flash Gordon, especially if you use a wide belt or wrap to keep the waist narrow. However, you will cover ground faster. Wheat germ [Links, Hodgson Mill Untoasted Wheat Germ, 12 oz/$1.99], vitamin K (100 micrograms/day switches on the bone growth protein osteocalcin, found in spinach, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, asparagus, cabbage, coleslaw and collard greens), vitamin D (the sunshine vitamin D3 is required to absorb and deposit calcium and minimizes fractures in aging adults), calcium (> 200 mg/day), magnesium ( > 100 mg/day, some say > 400 mg/day), phosphorus (> 4 mg/day), and zinc (> 1 mg/day) from mineral supplements [Paper], low-fat milk, and low-fat cottage cheese are useful. I have heard rumors that wheat germ [Images, Video, Papers, Patents, Books] is behind communities of men all seven feet tall in the Ukraine, and that men from there who do not take their wheat germ after traveling from that region have lost their height. However, their 7 foot height could be restored with wheat germ after they had returned home. The wheat germ may have to be extracted and untoasted. Vitamin A, vitamin C (collagen synthesis), the amino acid Lysine, and essential fatty acids are also necessary. Smoking hurts, because it metabolizes estrogens that are required for bone growth. I guess the estrogens are the reason the Jolly Green Giant stands there laughing with his hands on his hips. Bone growth is stimulated by weight-bearing exercise and impact loading. Note that sodium butyrate, an HDAC inhibitor, improves the size of farm animals.
It may also be possible to use gene insertion or replacement techniques [Links/gene insertion, Links/targeted gene insertion, Links/gene replacement, Links/targeted gene replacement] to stimulate or control growth in a way that permanantly modifies the genome including cells in the reproductive system, so that the modifications may be inherited. Today such changes might be programmed with targeted genome editing featuring zinc finger nucleases.

Cat Food and Taller Czars
I note that local boys sometimes eat canned cat food [Papers, Patents, Books], especially during growth and development, to add height. It seems every can of cat food is equipped with vitamins and minerals, in addition to fish or meat, that helps a human add height. It can be dressed with barbeque sauce to make it more palatable. There are some indications that ocean whitefish [Images] can improve bone size, even after human growth and development to age 25 (check). However, the only source of ocean whitefish in Kansas is cat food such as 9 Lives Ocean Whitefish Dinner. However, this approach could change the shape of one's nose, as well as one's height, and might lead to an identity crisis. It has been persistantly rumored that "halibut", a fish, can both increase height and penis size in adults. There are exercises to improve height that stretch the spine. Buttermilk, rich in vitamin K2 and minerals, and fish rich in omega-3 fatty acids, taken daily, are rumored to improve height in adults. (Check.)
See Nutrition for Growth and Development [Index/Growth and Development, Links, Images, Video, Papers, Patents, Books; Links/Nutrition for Bone Growth, Images, Video, Papers, Patents, Books; Links/Nutrition for Brain Growth, Images, Video, Papers, Patents, Books; Links/Nutrition for Penis Development, Images, Video, Papers, Patents, Books].

I think have seen one man I knew, a teacher when I was a student at North High, who got dramatically younger and turned up taller, too. He was perhaps 60 when he started, but seemed maybe 30 when I bumped into him. A few years ago he was under 6' tall, then turned up youthful and perhaps 6'5" tall. I don't know how he did it. My recognition system was too startled to ask when we bumped into each other at a local grocery store. He seemed happy to see me, recognized me, and I think perhaps he had been reading my web pages.

I have heard it whispered that raw chopped liver [Images, Papers, Patents, Books] can help put on height during a youngster's growth and development period. Perhaps Pasteurized chopped liver, liver boiled in water, would work well enough. I remember my father fed us cooked chopped liver in those years from time to time, perhaps to get some of the effect rumored to be obtainable from raw, chopped liver [Images, Papers, Patents, Books].

Meals per Day in Height Programming
By skipping breakfast, developing children can turn out small. On the other hand, three fish for breakfast can produce men over 6 feet tall. Still taller men can be produced by adding a 4th meal just before bedtime to the diet of a growing child through his teenage years. Of course, a vitamin and mineral supplement with every meal is also good for producing fuller development of growing children. However, application of all these tricks can make children of small parents appear to have been hatched from meteorites fallen from above.
