The Anti-Cancer Pro-Longevity Miracle Supplement
Before I bust out today’s article, a little housekeeping is in order:
Turapur is sold out! Congratulations to everyone who jumped on board and got one for themselves. We’re rushing to get more in stock. We might sell out again, so this time make sure you’re first in line.
Ever wished there was a pill that could help you live longer?
The more I dive down the rabbit hole of research on supplement ingredients, the more I think this fantasy can actually be true.
Researchers in Irvine, California tracked which genes significantly change with aging, and isolated 25.
Then, they gave mice a certain supplement for eight weeks… and discovered that 13 out of the 25 genes simply stopped changing like they would with regular aging!
This was published in the Journal of Pineal Research in April, 2004. (Distracting side note: I’m betting this is related to certain schools of meditation associating the pineal gland with a long life and other neat benefits, even though Western medicine has long ignored this part of the brain.)
Anyhoo… later, scientists at the Red Nacional de Investigacion del Envejecimiento (Love that name!) gave small amounts of this same supplement to mice. They found both oxidative stress and inflammation were lowered, leading to increased longevity!
It’s not just mice, either. Shrews given this supplement showed slower signs of aging by three months. This is very exciting considering shrews normally live for 30 months or so in captivity. In other words, they were functioning as if they were “10 years younger” in human terms.
Oh, and the study title is called “The Timing of the Shrew.” It’s always good when these scientists can squeeze a little literary humor into their research. Top drawer!
While human studies haven’t focused on longevity, there’s plenty of evidence showing this supplement helps the fight against cancer:
Researchers at Xinxiang Medical University in Henan Province, China, discovered that patients taking this supplement “led to substantial improvements in tumor remission, one-year survival, and alleviation of radiochemotherapy-related side effects.”
All right, enough teasing. What is this miracle ingredient?
Which is why doctors always recommend that cancer patients take melatonin supplements… right?
Oh, they don’t?
Lovely. Maybe someone could forward them the above study. And this one:
Scientists at the Department of Clinical Epidemiology, McMaster University in Canada found similar results. They performed a review of 10 trials involving melatonin supplementation and solid-tumor cancer patients. They looked at survival rates after one year, and found a significantly lower rate of death among those taking melatonin.
This is only scratching the surface.
The quick and dirty way to begin benefitting is to take melatonin.
However, there is a much better option:
Prime your body so it releases its own melatonin at night, when it’s time to go to sleep. You can do this by optimizing your nighttime environment:
- Shut off the TV.
- If you have a TV in your bedroom, take that bad boy out and put it someplace more appropriate (like the garbage can… but I admit I’m pretty militant about television).
- When you want to go to sleep, turn off the lights.
This last point is crucial, and I want you to notice a distinction I made. I did not write “Turn off your lights as you go to sleep.” Instead, I’m saying if you want to sleep, first turn of the lights. Because the darkness will stimulate melatonin production, leading to that sleepy feeling.
Perhaps it might lead to greater longevity as well.

For YEARS, modern medicine essentially ignored the gastrointestinal tract. Sure, it’s where you digest and absorb your food. But that was the end of the story.
