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. REVERSE aging in your brain… and RESTORE up to 14 years?

    REVERSE aging in your brain… and RESTORE up to 14 years?

    A sharper… smarter… and YOUNGER… brain?!?!?

    That just doesn’t seem possible, I know, especially if it feels like your mind is aging in fast-forward mode.

    But there’s a way to hit the PAUSE button on that process.

    And something even more incredible could happen, too…

    You could hit the REWIND button!

    There’s an all-natural therapy that can WIPE OUT the toll of time… and DE-AGE YOUR BRAIN.

    And not by a little bit.

    You can get up to 14 YEARS YOUNGER where it matters most!

    Promising new research shows how a powerful blend of natural compounds found in grapes and berries can help REPAIR the damage of age-related decline… and RESTORE your memory and cognition.

    REVERSE cognitive decline with this ‘brain lift’

    Some parts of the body just seem to age faster than others.

    Steve Martin’s hair started turning gray in his 20s. Then we all watched it turn sheet-white over the course of just a handful of films.

    But you know the old saw: It’s the INSIDE that counts!

    And the sad truth is, your brain can age a whole lot faster than Steve’s poor hair.

    One day, you’re cooking along, certain that NOTHING’S gonna to slow you down.

    The next, you’re struggling with the basics… and practically in a panic as you fear the rapid slip into declinedementia… and WORSE.

    But the powerful polyphenols locked inside grapes and berries could help turn it around.

    And they can do it within just SIX months!

    The new study tested 600 mg of a European polyphenol supplement called Memophenol – which includes 258 mg of flavonoids from grape and blueberry extract – against a placebo in 215 older men and women with different degrees of age-related cognitive decline.

    Every group improved compared the folks given the placebo.

    But the BIGGEST change of all happened in seniors who needed help the most: the ones with the highest degree of cognitive decline.

    These folks improved by 14 YEARS in their cognitive age!

    Now, this is just one study, so I wouldn’t put all my eggs in this fruit basket just yet.

    But grape seed extract has a sterling reputation as a flavonoid-rich antioxidant…

    And blueberry is a proven age-fighter.

    So, it would at least make sense the two could join forces and give your brain a BIG lift.

    It certainly won’t hurt you to try it.

    But if it’s all on the line… if your brain is tanking and you’re in the throes of cognitive decline… you need to hurl EVERYTHING you’ve got at it.

    Start with my Top 3:

    1. EAT better by eliminating ALL processed foods
    2. TAKE ginkgo, another powerful natural therapy for enhancing the brain, and
    3. TRY phosphatidylserine, a phospholipid also known as PS, which has shown incredible promise for condition.

    And don’t forget to work with a doctor to find or at least rule out the many possible causes of “false” dementias -- from chronic Lyme to drug side effects.

  2. EVERY senior needs this ‘repair kit’ nutrient to SLASH risk of death

    You have a repair kit in your closet… in the garage and/or shed… and I’m guessing one in your car, too.

    You no doubt have what you need to fix anything -- whether it’s a torn shirt, a broken pipe, a flat tire, or a creaky door.

    But what if I told you there’s a repair kit for your BODY, too?

    There IS one – one that can UNDO the damage of everything normally blamed on age and disease.

    And you won’t believe how easy it is to get!

    EXTEND your life with this overlooked vitamin

    This REPAIR KIT nutrient is plain ol’ vitamin C.

    But don’t dismiss it just because it’s so simple and basic.

    It’s also so FORGOTTEN, too!

    Many people don’t even bother with it – but research reported on by Life Extension showed what happens when you make an effort to raise your levels.

    Over the course of more than 16 years, folks with the HIGHEST vitamin C levels had a…

    • 25% lower risk of death from ANY cause
    • 28% lower risk of death from cancer
    • 28% lower risk of death from stroke, and
    • 35% lower risk of death from heart disease.

    Seriously, if a drug did that, how much do you think they’d charge for it?

    Whatever you’re guessing, I’d say double it. Maybe triple it. Heck, quadruple it… and they’ll still probably charge more.

    But YOU can get it… right NOW… for literal pennies.

    The study theorizes that the reason for the benefit is that vitamin C fights off oxidative stressprotecting your DNA from damage and enhancing the endothelial layer of the blood vessels to fight off heart disease.

    And sure, it’s a neat antioxidant.

    But it’s also the #1 component of collagen, which is top repair protein in the body.

    Anything that needs fixin’ needs good collagen – and the only way to get good collagen is with the right levels of vitamin C.

    That makes vitamin C the most important tool in your body’s repair kit.

    And along with the benefits found in the new study, higher (intravenous) levels can carry out even more complicated “repairs.”

    Specifically, it can KILL OFF nearly any bacteria… and WIPE OUT cancer cells (and almost any type!).

    Those cancer cells in particular LOVE vitamin C. Well… they THINK they do. They suck it up like sugar, pulling it in faster than normal cells.

    But they essentially POISON themselves with it in the process.

    The C disrupts their cellular metabolism, and they DIE.

    So, for general daily support, protection against infection, good heart health and an overall longer, healthier life… boost your C.

    If it makes you gassy or whatever, split up the doses so you’re taking it three or four times a day. Over time, you may build tolerance and can handle fewer, higher doses.

    And if you’re fighting off a serious infection or a “deadly” disease like cancer, get yourself hooked up with intravenous C from a naturopathic medical doctor.

  3. [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!

And when I say upper-hand, I mean this stuff could help you with just about EVERYTHING you might...
