Aging can be hard, but it doesn't have to be. And we're here to help make it as easy as possible. This section of the NorthStar blog contains information on aging and anti-aging tips, including the latest anti-aging breakthroughs.

  1. [WOW!] NEW vitamin can power your internal batteries and SLOW aging

    Move over ABCs…

    There’s a new nutrient in town -- and it just might be the most POWERFUL one yet!

    Cutting-edge research reveals how single compound… locked inside hundreds of plants as well as green tea… could give you the upper-hand against aging.

    And when I say upper-hand, I mean this stuff could help you with just about EVERYTHING you might fear (short of car crashes and burglars).

    The latest studies hint at INCREDIBLE benefits, including the power to:

    • STOP aging
    • SAVE brain cells
    • POWER the immune system
    • ENERGIZE cells
    • SLASH inflammation
    • BLOCK Alzheimer’s disease
    • FIGHT Parkinson’s disease
    • SLOW arthritis, and
    • PROTECT your heart.

    That’s a pretty nifty list-o-tricks for something practically NO ONE’S ever heard of

    Get ahead of the curve with this age-fighting superstar

    It’s called PQQ (or “pyrroloquinoline quinone,” but just try saying THAT out loud).

    The science is so new that they’re still not quite sure what it is.

    Is it a true vitamin? An antioxidant? Just a friendly compound?

    Whatever they call it, it's increasingly clear that you WANT it!

    Emerging evidence shows it helps the single most important part of the cells inside your body….

    The mitochondria.

    It’s been called the cell’s battery… or even its power plant… because it provides energy.

    Without energy, the cell dies.

    When you’re young, that battery is so fully charged that you practically give off sparks.

    As you get older, well… it doesn’t hold a charge the way it used to. (Ever notice that with your old cellphone?)

    The mitochondria power down… the cells lose energy… and you suffer all of the effects of aging.

    We’re talking infection, illness, disease,and death.


    But PQQ can give your batteries a jump-start.

    It acts on the enzymes that cause the mitochondria to power on. Then, for good measure, it arms those same mitochondria against the damage of oxidative stress.

    It’s as if aging is being REVERSED… at least on a cellular level.

    There is a downside to anything cutting-edge…

    So far, most of the research is on animals.

    But the few human studies out there are incredibly promising.

    In one, folks given 20 mg per day of PQQ did better on tests of working memoryand focus.

    Scans showed they had more blood flowto key regions of the brain, compared to folks given a placebo.

    Some of the best studies so far have combined PQQ with resveratroland quercetin.

    I’ve recently started on this combo myself. Haven’t felt anything yet – good or bad – but I wouldn’t expect to.

    This is all about what matters most: long-term health.

    If you want to give it a shot yourself, just be sure to stick to quality supplements from trusted manufacturers.

    I found the combos out there are a little pricey, but I saved a few bucks by getting them individually instead.

  2. [BUSTED] Big Pharma caught BURYING the ‘Fountain of Youth’

    Imagine having a potential game-changer… a single molecule that can achieve what EVERYONE wants.

    It can slow… maybe even STOP… the aging process.

    Do you share it with the world? Or do you HIDE it?

    Guess which option Big Pharma has chosen.

    A few years back, GlaxoSmithKline bought a company doing some of the best research into one of the most promising compounds to fight aging… for a whopping $720 million.

    But just two years after this MASSIVE investment, they shut the WHOLE THING down!

    Suspicious? You bet it is!

    They’re spending money to HIDE the evidence… for as long as they can.

    Don’t let their scheme stop you from trying this miracle worker yourself.

    What have they got to hide?

    With its pricey investment, the Pharma giant likely had two goals in mind…

    And I GUARANTEE neither one was introducing the world to a cheap natural way to fight aging on a cellular level.

    The fact that these guys spent nearly three quarters of a billion dollars to shut resveratrol down should tell you EVERYTHING.

    Clearly, the “big boys” know that it works…

    So, why did they announce that all that expensive research was flawed?

    Clearly, they only had TWO options:

    1. To create, patent, and sell an expensive synthetic based on resveratrol, or
    2. Bury everything if they can’t.

    Looks like they went with that second option.

    Can’t have heathy old people who don’t need pricey meds now, can we???

    But don’t buy the line they’re trying to feed you…

    Resveratrol has worked miracles in mice.

    Now, I’ll admit that animal studies aren’t as good as human studies…

    But that $720 million made sure that no REAL human trials are coming anytime soon.

    We’re all mammals… so theoretically, there SHOULD be some human benefit.

    And I can tell you from experience that there IS.

    In fact, resveratrol tops my list of the best age-fighters out there.

    Most animal research I've seen tended to have resveratrol combined with quercetin, where they act together on more metabolic pathways.

    Along with curcumin, quercetinseems to enhance the absorption of resveratrol.

    And you get a bonus… because the resveratroland quercetinBOTH help you absorb curcumin.


    Finally, nobody talks about this as a “fountain of youth”… but the research on vitamin C is stellar.

    All tissue repair in your body requires vitamin C.

    And when it comes down to it, the fight against aging is ALL about helping your body make those repairs.

    Given that these are inexpensive and non-toxic, there’s no harm in trying them.
