Eeeeewwwww GROSS ! ! !
Have you ever thought about extending your youth? I don’t mean living longer – I mean living a life of vitality with freedom of movement free from chronic pain, and great brain function?
I came across an interesting article about ANTI-AGING and was sucked in to the research by molecular biologist Professor Cynthia Kenyon, whom many experts believe should win the Nobel Prize for her research into Anti-aging.
That is right ANTI -AGING ! Looking and feeling younger.
Professor Kenyon discovered that non-vegetable carbohydrates directly affect specific genes that govern the aging and lack of youthfulness and longevity.
She discovered that controlling the gene activity of the Roundworm dramatically slows down the aging process.
Dr Kenyon gave some of her Roundworms a tiny bit of sugar and it shortened their lifespans. Another group of Roundworms lived 6 times longer than normal by eliminating non-vegetable carbohydrates ( like sugar, grains and starches) Professor Kenyon was stunned that they also kept their health and youthful vigor until the end.
She immediately went to the book store to buy a book on LOW-GLYCEMiC diets! Based on the life and death of her Roundworms and her discovery of how sugar overstimulates hormone receptors, Dr Kenyon immediately changed her diet and sticks to low glycemic foods. She changed her own Lab profile, maintains her weight and feels – ” like a kid again.”
“Not surprisingly, with all her work looking at the heavy hand of the “Grim Reaper” gene turned on by insulin, Dr. Kenyon began cutting back significantly on her carbohydrate intake to control the insulin production and lower blood sugar. The makeup of her diet is enough to bring a smile to the face of most people who follow a healthy low-carb lifestyle: no starchy foods like potatoes, noodles, rice, bread and pasta, salads without sugary dressings, olive oil, nuts, cheese, chicken, eggs, bunless hamburgers, baked fish, very little fruit, no processed foods, and some 80 percent chocolate. She believes eating this way will help her stay healthy and fit for a much longer period of time than she would have had she continued eating the way she used to.”
Dr Cynthia Kenyon’s research of how the hormone signaling system influences aging have been successfully repeated in other labs around the world using other animals, including rats, mice, and to some extent, monkeys.
The research states that humans also have these same genes, indicating these results apply to us as well.
The ultimate aim of Ideal Health NOW is promoting a vision of a healthy lifestyle by changing a person’s eating behavior to a lower glycemic diet to promote a healthy weight, great brain function, and healthy ageing.
Cynthia Kenyon says, “Just living longer and being sick is the worst. But the idea that you could have fewer diseases and just have a healthy life is the best vision to have.”
