“Immortal Cells” Discovery Could END AGING

Dear Living Well Daily Reader,

I’ve been studying anti-aging medicine for more than two decades.

During that time, many interesting studies crossed my desk.

In the last few years, a lot of anti-aging research has focused on two DRUGS with potential age-fighting compounds: Rapamycin and Metformin.

It all started when researchers discovered a receptor called mTOR (mammalian target of rapamycin) in many of our cells regulates cell growth and death.

The theory is that if you can block mTOR, you may end up with cells that can essentially live forever.

In other words, they could create “Immortal Cells.”

And guess what blocks mTOR? If you said Rapamycin and Metformin, congratulations you win the goldfish.

Rapamycin is typically used to prevent organ rejection following kidney transplants. Metformin is used for blood sugar control.

But with the discovery of mTOR and these drugs’ ability to block the receptor, many people are taking them to stave off the grim reaper.

There’s just one problem. And it’s a BIG one.

Despite their benefits, Rapamycin and Metformin are still drugs. That means they can come with some serious side effects.

And the longer you take them, the more those risks rise.

That’s why I was excited to read a new study revealing a way to reap those anti-aging benefits without all the risks.

New animal research at the Max Planck Institute for Biology of Aging discovered that taking rapamycin for just a short period (two to twelve weeks) had the same anti-aging results as giving the animals the drug for their whole lives.

In other words, one day, they may offer short stints of one of these drugs to help head off aging. Or even better, we can take what we learn from them to find an equally effective natural solution that does the same thing… creating “Immortal Cells.”

Either way, more research is needed. And I certainly wouldn’t advise popping prescription pills even if they technically can help you to live longer.

The good news is that there are ALREADY many natural substances that we know can also help block mTOR and fight off the signs of aging.

Following are four of my favorites:

  • Resveratrol: This polyphenol compound is found in red grapes, blueberries, and raspberries. It’s a powerful antioxidant that blocks mTOR and has been studied as an anti-cancer agent and to combat diabetes and Alzheimer’s.
  • Quercetin: This mTOR-suppressing polyphenol is found in tea, onions, and red grapes. Quercetin is used to help control blood sugar, prevent heart disease, increase brown fat, and inhibit cancer.
  • Curcumin: This turmeric extract also blocks mTOR. It’s used to reduce inflammation, ease joint pain, calm anxiety, and improve cholesterol levels.
  • Epigallocatechin Gallate (EGCG): This green-tea extract naturally blocks mTOR and is used to reduce inflammation, aid in weight loss, and help keep brains and hearts in tip-top shape.

Go ahead and try these natural mTOR blockers and pump the brakes on aging starting TODAY.

P.S. The discovery of mTOR blocking substances isn’t the only exciting new advancement in anti-aging research. “Zombie cells” speed up aging and set you up for some of the most dangerous diseases around. Click through to find out how to eliminate them.
