While it is our biological age that matters most to determine the length of healthspan or amount of time a person will maintain good health. Francis Palmer, MD, a world-renowned, board-certified facial plastic surgeon, and author of “What’s Your Number?” has spent more than three decades of his career helping people look younger by altering outside appearances, but says there’s a more sustainable way to feel and look younger by reducing your biological age, and the best part: no surgery is required.
Dr. Palmer shows how to test your biological age with a simple saliva at-home test, and the benefits of supplementing calcium plus AKG (alpha-ketoglutarate) have on making cells act more youthful to potentially slow down the aging process that occurs naturally as cells age (i.e.: gray hair and forgetfulness):
• Longevity scientists say significantly elongating life without sustaining well-being is pointless, and enhancing vitality as we age may be our most valuable health gain.
• Chronological age is how many years you have been living (birthdays) and biological age is how old your cells are acting (or behaving).
• Biological age can be determined by a simple saliva at-home test.
• AKG is a small molecule naturally present in the body that significantly declines to start at age 40 and affects biological age (causing cells to age).
• Combined with calcium, supplementing with a specific time-release form of CaAKG (calcium alpha-ketoglutarate) can decrease biological age by eight years in approximately seven months (according to a new study in Aging).
• Comparatively, diet and exercise alone have only been known to reduce biological age by about two years after more than a year of consistent lifestyle changes.
