Chronological Calendar Age: 61.55, Model Age: 39.38, rejuvenation rate B = - 5.1 years/year. (See Age Transformation.)
In November I used Terraternal Astragaloside IV (100 mg/day) for the rejuvenation application for the first 15 days of the month, plus a couple of bottles of GAIA Herbs astragalus root extract in glycerin (green label, 1 mg astragalosides per 30 drops), which I applied to my scalp. I also used alpha-GPC and exercise to raise HGH levels for parallel pathway activation of hTERT. The most recent experimental results seem to show that astragalus extracts function like Shangri-la medicine. The shortest telomere loop is closed by the astragalosides, so more and more cells appear youthful, but as a whole telomeres get shorter, so that when you quit the medicine, you age quickly, like a scene out of Lost Horizon, the movie in which an actor leaving Shangri-la suddenly and dramatically ages. This has actually probably been observed. It should take a year to 18 months to progress through an accelerated aging sequence as a consequence of laying off your Shangri-la medicine. To prevent this, we may have to use replication protein A and hEST1A protein, which together function to open telomere loops so that telomerase activators such as astragaloside IV can act to extend all telomeres in the cell, not just the shortest telomere. However, there are reasons to believe that we can keep growing even very long telomeres by maintaining high telomerese densities, so that perhaps multiple-pathway activation of telomerase by various activators is our best bet. See Joachim Lingner, Telomerase and Chromosome End Replication, ISREC. I consider it unlikely that we will be limited to just growing the shortest telomere.


Midnight Photos: Astragalus Extract Seems to Darken Hair after Nearly a Year.

For old people, everything is magically worse-looking at midnight. The former Captain Midnight photos to the extreme right and left do look rather more grey. Kodak camera flash was used on the earlier photos, however. Now I'm using a Vivitar. I note that for some reason my hair usually seems to look darker in the morning after a long night's sleep than it does at midnight, even when dry. Direct treatment of the scalp with astragalus extract started about January 24, 2010. This December I am using GAIA Herbs Astragalus Root Extract in spring water and alcohol at 1 mg of astragalosides per 30 drops on my scalp instead of the same mixture in glycerin, because the glycerin version sold out! Astragalus extract taken orally seemed to have failed to restore hair color, as the rightmost photo shows. Prior to this I had merely done a few skin, scalp, and eye tests with astragalus extract in glycerin to determine if topical application would be immediately objectionable. It passed initial tests, but at first I was hoping direct application would not be required. After midnight 1/24/2010 I decided it would be best to go with direct application, as Artandi Labs reported positive hair restoration results on experimental animals with direct application of astragalosides.

I still think this a little better than Jan 24, 2010. The Portrait of Dorian Grey [Links] will always have its fascinations.
I note that my father looked something like this frazzeled early at 39. However 50 is about 50% grey.

and Dillon's Dynasty sesame oil in my hair.

I judge that things have improved a little bit.
December 2, 2010: Chronological age 61.55, Model Age 39.38 looks plausible.
I resolve never to give up on telomerase activation, and to lay off the eggnog. As a male model,
I see I need a leaner, more defined look, still more youthfulness, and white dental veneers.

It seems that telomere extension in dermal fibroblasts helped restore elastin in the extracellular matrix.

Anti-Aging Flight Plan down to Model Age 25.12 on August 31, 2013 at Age 64.3.
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.

Were to burst at once into the sky,
That would be like the splendor
Of the Enlightened One..."
