I just recently listened to an hour long interview with Dr Bruce Ames. Don’t feel bad if you aren’t familiar with his name. Let’s just say he is the Linus Pauling of this age. His research in age related metabolism is legendary. In the interview with Dr Jeffry Bland, he said something that caught my attention. We are all looking for some diet, food, drink or supplement that makes us feel better and act younger. Dr Ames said that feeding old rats a combination of Lipoic Acid and n-acetylcarnitine made the old rats “stand up and do the macarena”! Doesn’t that get your attention too. Of course that is not all you need to be doing but this combination of nutrients protects and encourages the mitochondria (engine that produces energy) to do more and repair itself. There is a company that sells this call Juvenon.com or you can go to a vitamin shop and get the same thing. Lipoic Acid has been on my list of “6 Most Must Take” vitamins for a long time. Now, I will be adding n-acetylcarnitine in with it.
