  1. This Superfood REVERSES Aging

    If you love mushrooms, you’ve got lots of company. After all, mushrooms taste good… and they’re great for perking up a pizza or sassing up your salad.
    But mushrooms have also treated more patients for disease than you might believe.
    And the reason is simple – mushrooms learn to survive in some pretty tough environments.
    That means they develop specific nutrients that can fight bacteria, viruses, toxins, and even cancer.
    So when we eat mushrooms, we get the benefits of those nutrients.
    In fact, mushrooms may be one of the greatest anti-aging superfoods on the planet.
    But here’s the trick – you need to make sure you’re getting the right kinds.
    Two of the most powerful nutrients in mushrooms have been studied extensively: ergothioneine and glutathione.
    Ergothioneine was discovered over a century ago. But it was ignored until recent studies showed that it acts as a powerful antioxidant in our bodies.
    That means it hunts down and neutralizes the free radicals that trigger early aging and disease.
    Glutathione is better known as a master antioxidant. It’s been shown to lower your risk of everything from cancer to Alzheimer’s.
    And the best source of these powerful nutrients? Mushrooms.
    A research paper, published by the Penn State Center for Plant and Mushroom Products for the health journal, Food Chemistry, described the benefits of mushrooms. Researchers found that white button mushrooms – like the ones you can find in your local grocery store – contain low levels of the two antioxidants, but they’re still higher than those found in most other foods.
    The best mushrooms for antioxidant power are Chaga, Cordyceps, Lion’s Mane, Reishi, Maitake, Turkey Tail, and Shiitake. These mushrooms used to be hard to find, but now most grocery stores carry them.
    Portabella mushrooms (which are common) have about the same ergothioneine and glutathione as white button mushrooms.
    And along with adding mushrooms to your diet, you can super-charge your anti-aging program with these other great tips:
    The Super Antioxidant and Anti-Aging Program:
    • Get 1000-3000 IU of vitamin D every day. Especially in winter, you need to supplement every day.
    • Exercise. Getting enough exercise not only boosts your anti-aging program, but if you do it outside, you get more sunshine – and that helps your body produce its own vitamin D.
    • Eat your way to health. Along with mushrooms, eat lots of veggies and fruits – the more colorful the better.
    • Take anti-aging nutrients. Alpha-lipoic acid, CoQ10, and astaxanthin are powerful antioxidants and anti-aging nutrients.
    • Keep your blood sugar under control. One of the other reasons we age fast is because of out-of-control blood sugar. Use the mineral chromium and the herbal extract berberine to help keep your blood sugar under control.
    • Make sure you have enough nutrients to support your whole body. This usually means taking a multivitamin to make up for the nutrients you’re not getting.

  2. RevitalizeQ Plus harnesses the anti-aging power of resveratrol

    Feel young again with the "other" CoQ10

    I think of coenzyme Q-10 (CoQ10) as the Rodney Dangerfield of nutrients. It gets no respect. In fact, despite being one of the most recognizable nutrients, CoQ10 gets the prize for also being one of the most neglected.

    Much to my surprise, I find that very few people I run into have even bothered to add this important supplement to their routine. And this is true despite the fact that most of them can rattle off at least a few of its potential benefits.

    Even worse, I find that the majority of those who are taking CoQ10 aren't getting the right kind. So while they think they're doing everything they can to help protect their heart and fight aging, they could actually be missing out on some of the most powerful benefits the enzyme has to offer.

    Now don't get me wrong. If you're already taking any form of CoQ10 you should give yourself a pat on the back. You're automatically light-years ahead of most people I meet. After all, supplementing a nutrient that fights free radicals...and helps convert carbs and fat into the vital energy your body needs... is always going to be a good choice.

    And when you add in the potential healthy cholesterol, healthy blood pressure, and energy-boosting benefits that the enzyme brings with it, it's clear that CoQ10 is a winner. But, I bet you didn't know that the form of CoQ10 you're taking can make all the difference in the world.

    The CoQ10 you don't know

    The CoQ10 that most people get from their local health food store or online is called "ubiquinone." And ubiquinone is great! In fact, this form of CoQ10 is the raw material your body needs to power up your heart and brain. It supports your cells from the inside.

    But your body can't fully use ubiquinone in its "raw" form. Instead, it has to first convert it into the bioavailable ubiquinol version of CoQ10. This is the form that travels around your body and is able to cross into your cells when your body needs it.

    So, in other words, to assure that your body can get all of the revitalizing benefits that CoQ10 has to offer, you need both forms of the enzyme...ubiquinone and ubiquinol...working together.

    Feel younger and revitalized

    Don't worry if you've never heard of this other form of CoQ10 before. Most people haven't. But that's why my friend and colleague Dr. Mark Stengler...from our affiliate company Dr. Mark Stengler's Health Products... is leading the charge to get the word out about the importance of taking both forms of the enzyme. And now he's made it super-easy to do just that.

    Dr. Stengler has created a unique blend of ubiquinone and bioavailable ubiquinol called RevitalizeQ Plus. This is the same powerful combination that he's been offering his own patients for years.

    But Dr. Stengler didn't stop there; he's also included the superstar "red wine" antioxidant resveratrol. This powerful longevity-triggering substance has been found to promote heart health, brain function, and circulation...making it the perfect partner for CoQ10. Then he rounded out his unique formula with the potent age-fighting antioxidant power of grape seed extract.

  3. More proof that antioxidants do not cause skin cancer

    Back in 2007, a group of French scientists published a study suggesting that women who take antioxidants are four times more likely to develop melanoma. This study scared a lot of people -- especially women -- out of taking selenium, zinc, and beta carotene as well as other antioxidants. Thankfully, a group of scientists in the U.S. set out to debunk the French study. They published their findings in the August issue of the Archives of Dermatology. And what do you know… The French study was just plain rubbish. In fact, according to Maryam Asgari, MD, MPH, and lead author of the U.S. counter-study, their methodology was completely flawed! First off, the French study involved just 13,000 men and women. Not bad, really. But the U.S. study, on the other hand, was much larger. They looked at the vitamin intake and rates of skin cancer for more than 70,000 men and women. They found no link whatsoever between antioxidant use and increased risk of skin cancer. Plus, the French scientists only looked at men and women who agreed to answer a single question on their lifetime sun exposure. This strict limitation placed on the selection process clearly skewed the data, according to the new study's authors. Lastly, the U.S. study reiterates the findings of dozens of well-respected studies over the years that have found zero connection between antioxidants and skin cancer. Clearly, the French study was just a fly in the ointment and a poorly-conducted study at best. Just goes to show you that even so-called scientific facts are much more open to interpretation than most of us would think. In any case, keep up with the antioxidants. Not only will they NOT give you melanoma, they'll actually protect you against a whole slew of other cancers as well!
