As we age, when we eat is just as important as what we eat – especially for women entering perimenopause and menopause. SuperAge experts discuss: how much water we need for proper hydration, the importance of keeping up our bone density, and why adding 15 colorful foods a day is helpful for gut health.Fitness and Exercise: We’ve grown up hearing about the importance of exercise. But for fitness over 50 and to increase longevity, weight lifting, aerobic activities and HIIT (high intensity interval training) sessions play an important role.

    Ross Pelton, pharmacist and scientific director for Essential Formulas, Inc joins us to discuss rapamycin and its potential benefit for age-related diseases, its connection to cancer treatment, intermittent fasting, and more. 
    Disclaimer: This is not medical advice. Always consult your doctor before adding any supplements or medications into your life. 
    “Rapamycin is the most effective anti-aging drug that’s ever been discovered.” 
    “These days, people start eating at 7 in the morning and do breakfast, lunch and dinner and mid-meal snacks and dessert after supper and maybe an evening cocktail. So, from 7 in the morning until 7 at night, that’s 12 hours, another 4 hours to finish digesting food, that’s 16 hours. Whereas ancestral humans only had 4 hours of eating and digesting a day.” 
    “You can’t be in a go, go, go position all the time or you will burn yourself out.”
    “In animal studies, virtually every single type of age-related disease improves when the animals take rapamycin.”

    The Critical Importance of Nitric Oxide and How to Get More of It: Dr. Nathan Bryan

    The Critical Importance of Nitric Oxide and How to Get More of It: Dr. Nathan Bryan

    Dr. Nathan Bryan is an international leader in molecular medicine and nitric oxide biochemistry. Dr. Bryan was the first to describe nitrite and nitrate as indispensable nutrients required for optimal cardiovascular health. He was the first to demonstrate and discover an endocrine function of nitric oxide via the formation of S-nitrosoglutathione and inorganic nitrite.

    Dr. Bryan joins us on the SuperAge podcast to explain this complex topic. He shares the role nitric oxide plays in inflammation and blood flow, the connection between nitric oxide and our oral microbiome, how to test our nitric oxide levels, what the importance of daily sunlight is, red light therapy, the connection to Raynauds, and more. 
    “Every single chronic disease whether its heart disease, Alzheimer’s, diabetes, liver disease, or lung disease, the common denominator in all of them is decreased blood flow, increased inflammation, and nitric oxide is what controls and regulates both of those things. It decreases inflammation and increases blood flow.” 
    “People who use mouthwash have higher blood pressure than those who don’t and it puts them at an increased risk for heart attack and stroke.” 
    “If you’re using mouthwash, you have to stop. Mouthwash is bad news. There is clear evidence that it increases blood pressure. In fact, if you use mouthwash and exercise, you lose the cardioprotective benefits of exercise.” 
    “Exercise stimulates nitric oxide production and that’s why exercise is medicine.” 
    “Since 1946 – 2018 there’s a 78% decline in all nutrients in plants grown and vegetables grown in the US.”
    “The foods we eat today, every single American is deficient in one or more nutrients.” 
    “Taking apple cider ginger before every meal is probably the best therapeutic strategy you can do.” 
    “Most Americans with chronic disease are overmedicated. They’re on 6, 8, 10 sometimes 12 different medications and there’s never a discussion of how the physician is going to get you off of those meds. With that many drugs your body cannot heal itself, your body can’t perform.”

    Cold Exposure Therapy Is Highly Beneficial: Jono James

    Cold Exposure Therapy Is Highly Beneficial: Jono James

    What are the benefits of cold exposure? How did Jono James take control of his health after a terminal diagnosis through practices like cold exposure? Why does the body need stressors like cold and exercise? What types of breathing help during cold exposure? 
    Thank you to our sponsor, InsideTracker. Listeners get 20% off on all products here. 
    Jono James was born with a condition called cystic fibrosis which impacts his lungs, liver, pancreas, and digestive system. He was given 10 years to live when he was born. Now, he is 35 years old and, through a series of natural health methods, including cold therapy, he took control of his diagnosis and beat the odds. Jono created Odin Ice Baths to help others because of the success he has found in doing cold therapy.  
    Cold therapy has been beneficial in David’s life by helping him recover from workouts faster, preventing injury, reducing pain, enhancing mental and cognitive function, improving sleep, and more. Always check with your doctor to make sure that your body can handle cold exposure, and to what degree. 
    “I’m 35 now and I was given 10 years to live when I was born, more or less. Most people look at me and don’t think there’s anything wrong with me. That comes down to me trying everything… I’ve treated myself like a one-person clinical trial and I’ve tried things over and over again and, eventually, I found a select few things that really, really help me.” 
    “There are so many people with anxiety and depression these days and most people seem to find that they get a lot of benefit from the ice baths.”
    “It’s a positive stress on the body. It’s a stress that challenges the body to get better.”
    “When you exercise, the body goes, ‘Oh, I’m not actually good enough how I am now. You’re putting me under a bit of pressure; I need to build muscle mass and become better and stronger.’ ” 
    “The body is not designed to sit around on a comfy couch. It’s supposed to be challenged, it’s supposed to be a tool for foraging and hunting. The more we separate ourselves from the way we used to do things the less good our health becomes.” 
    “In an ideal world, I’d do sauna every day.”

    The Future of Personalized Health Is Here Today: Dr. Momo Vuyisich

    The Future of Personalized Health Is Here Today: Dr. Momo Vuyisich

    How can we test our gut microbiome and what can we do with the results? What is our oral microbiome? How is Viome revolutionizing cancer and disease detection, prevention, and elimination? What is Dr. Momo’s vision for the future of health?
    Dr. Momo Vuyisich is the Co-founder, Chief Science Officer, and Head of Clinical Research at Viome Life Sciences whose mission is to digitize, decode, and decipher human biology for the prevention, early diagnosis, and treatment of chronic diseases and cancer. AGEIST founder David Stewart is a testimony of Viome’s ability to help us reach optimal health. 
    Dr. Momo explains the science behind Viome’s technology, the individualized approach to Viome’s treatment plans, how they are revolutionalizing the detection of oral & throat cancer, the importance of our oral microbiome, Dr. Momo’s vision for the next 10 years, and more.

    “No matter what condition you are looking at, you should look at the whole body and not just the isolated organ. 
    “The process of digestion starts in the mouth, there are enzymes that are released in the mouth and there are both microbial and human enzymes.” 
    “I wanted to create a technology that is advanced and molecular and super hard to do but be accessible to everyone in the world just like the app store.” 
    “We are focusing on preventative and curative strategies and not these maintenance strategies where you’re given medication for the rest of your life and you still are deteriorating or you’re still not getting better.” 
    “Symptoms are the terminal stages of a disease. Molecular disease happens years oor decades before the symptoms are felt. If you want to know your status that you are heading for a heart attack, you can know that 30 years before the heart attack.”

    How to Take Care of Your Mind: Dr. Richard Davidson

    How to Take Care of Your Mind: Dr. Richard Davidson

    Is our mind our brain? How does meditation help us inspect our minds? What is the connection between anxiety and meditation? What is the connection between our mind and addiction? How can we measure our wellbeing? 
    Thank you to our sponsor, Viome. SuperAge listeners get $30 off Viome’s Health Intelligence Test with code “AGEIST” here. 
    Richard J. Davidson, PhD is a Professor of Psychology and Psychiatry, Founder and Director of the Center for Healthy Minds, University of Wisconsin-Madison, and the Founder and Chief Visionary for Healthy Minds Innovations, Inc. 
    Dr. Davidson explores what our minds are, how types of meditation help us inspect our minds, his relationship with His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, how we can measure wellbeing, and more. 
    “Beliefs about ourselves, the world, and our expectations literally shape our experience in the world.” 
    “I often say that meditation is like sports. There are many, many, many varieties and they each will have differing effects.” 
    “Thinking is what human minds and brains do. We’re very well equipped to think. The goal of meditation is not to stop thinking, the goal is to stop getting lost.” 
    “We can’t transform our mind unless we know what our minds are actually doing.” 
    “When you begin to actually open up the black box of our mind, begin to inspect it and interrogate it, it could be terrifying to see what’s there because it’s so chaotic for many people.” 
    “One of the things that distinguish humans from other species is that we have the capacity to engage in mental time travel. We can reflect on the past and we can anticipate the future.” 
    “Human beings are born to flourish. We have all of the capabilities to lead a happy, meaningful, and engaged life. We come into the world with those capacities but they need to be nourished in order for them to be expressed.”

    How We Hear and How to Improve Hearing: Dr. Cliff Olson 

    How We Hear and How to Improve Hearing: Dr. Cliff Olson 

    Dr. Cliff Olson is an Audiologist, founder of Applied Hearing Solutions in Phoenix, Arizona, and former Marine. Dr. Olson has devoted his entire career to treating individuals with hearing loss to get them their communication back and potentially stave off the negative consequence of cognitive decline. Dr. Olson shares everything we need to know about hearing loss from the different kinds, the connection between hearing loss and cognitive decline, how to approach hearing aids, and more. 
    Thank you to our sponsor, LMNT. SuperAge listeners receive a free 8-serving sample pack with your purchase here. 
    Thank you to our sponsor, InsideTracker. SuperAge listeners get 20% off all products here.
    What are the different types of hearing loss? How can we prevent and treat hearing loss? What is the difference between an audiologist, ENT, otologist? What is the impact of today’s earbuds and headphones? What is the connection between hearing loss and cognitive decline? What are cochlear implants? What is tinnitus? 
    “Hearing loss really is a silent epidemic because once you start losing your hearing you don’t really know what you’re missing. 
    “The funny thing about the human brain is that your brain will reorganize the way that it processes information if you’re missing access to speech information.” 
    “If you’re someone who is 65 years old and you have not had an actual, legitimate baseline hearing test by an audiologist, you need to find an audiologist in your area and schedule a baseline test whether you think you have hearing loss or not.” 
    “It only takes as little as 3 months with mild level hearing loss for your brain to start changing the way that it processes information.” 
    “If you have mild level hearing loss you are 2x more likely to develop dementia. If you have moderate hearing loss you are 3x more likely and if you have severe hearing loss you are 5x more likely to develop dementia.” 
    “Hearing loss is the leading potentially modifiable risk factor for dementia later in life and it accounts for 9% of your overall risk of developing dementia.”

Awesome host and show!

I love Ageist and everything they are doing to advance knowledge, empowerment, relevancy, and general wellness for all. Was a guest here on SuperAge: Live Better Podcast and couldn't be more happy about the conversation. My talk with David was authentic, meaningful, and I was in a great frame of mind all day afterwards! What a treat!

Dozydotes ,

SUPERAGE 5 big stars!!

This is hands down my favorite podcast. There’s something here for everybody. I’m a healthy and (fairly) fit 67 year old with a keen interest in aging well. Although, I’m never gonna be swimming in freezing temps like host David Stewart, I find there are tips to draw from in every episode. Some guests offer very basic and easily doable suggestions, while others seem more focused on those who function at a very high level from a fitness and wellness perspective. Still, I take a little something from every guest, as well as the host. I highly recommend!!
