We all possess an easy way to influence the speed at which we age – and the good news is it isn’t hard to implement.
Ageing is the most important risk factor for the majority of human pathologies. We propose the concept that the advancement of the hallmarks of ageing is dictated by several distinct biological clocks that can be decelerated by the induction of autophagy. This ‘time dilation’ delays the time-dependent manifestation of multiple diseases.Decelerating ageing and biological clocks by autophagy

The part I
It makes perfect sense that if autophagy refreshes our cellular
Anabolic vs Catabolic
We typically associate anabolic with steroids and body builders. This is a helpful way to remember that anabolic is the body’s growth mode. Catabolic is its opposite – repair and recovery mode. Autophagy occurs during the catabolic state – one most American’s avoid almost entirely.
How to activate autophagy
The challenge is that as a
Fortunately, I just finished a 30+ page whitepaper on how do to just that. It includes the science behind this whole concept
