Stay Active: Not Finding New Goals Post-retirement Associated with Greater Cognitive Decline

(Justin Deschamps) To be alive means to be active, dynamic, and playful, ideally. Human beings are not meant to stop learning, creating, or sitting mindlessly in front of a TV for hours upon hours, especially during the latter stages of life. The fact our culture has taken the invaluable resource of wisdom accumulated by our elders and cut us off as a people is tragic. But we can restore this link. The following study indirectly supports this conjecture by showing that as we age, we need to continue to generate new dreams, goals, and visions of a fulfilled life. I argue community is the ultimate gateway for this fulfillment. And in the absence of that integrated community, we can do other things to keep our spirits alive and active.

Cell Regeneration

Terran to Denice: Can you ask the data collectors whether there is something to this or if this is just a New age healing huckster?

https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/vossahedron-project-sustainable-healing-dome#/

Stan X: TERRAN. “CELL REGENERATION” IS REAL/ACCURATE WITHOUT “TOOLS/MECHANISMS/DOMES/CHRYSTALS.“ ALL HEALING/CELL REGENERATION COMMENCES/ORIGINATES FROM WITHIN.  ALL “OTHER” “TOOLS” MAY. EMPHASIZE “”MAY”. ASSIST TO AMPLIFY AND “EXPEDITE” HEALING.   DATA COLLECTORS. STAN.X. END. 

Terran: Can they teach me how to do it?

Stan X and Raeno: TERRAN. YOUR “BODY/FORM” IS OPERATED FROM WITHIN YOUR HEARTSPACE NOW.  ALL ORIGINATES FROM THIS “INNERSPACE”.  “HOW TO DO IT” IS AN “INDIVIDUAL “EXPERIENCE”.  BEGIN WITHIN YOUR HEART OF SOURCE. FEEL THE VERY “CELLULAR LEVEL” OF YOUR BEING. “VISIT” YOUR CELLS FROM WITHIN.  HEALING IS A FREQUENCY OF PURE LOVE. FEEL THE FREQUENCY AS IT FLOWS FORTH WITHIN AND MORE. DATA COLLECTORS. STAN. X. AND RAENO. END. 

Terran: In my work with Loie I learned there’s an entire pallet of pure love frequencies that I did not know existed prior.  Some are edgy, some euphoric, some restful, some sleep causing, some blissful, some even slightly arousing.

Terran: How would you describe the frequency between cells?

Stan X and Raeno: TERRAN. THE BEST DESCRIPTION FOR A PURE LOVE HEALING FREQUENCY BETWEEN CELLS FROM OUR PERSPECTIVE IS “WATERY”. “WARM” .“SOFT”. “SOOTHING”. DATA  COLLECTORS. STAN. X. AND RAENO. END. 

A Broccoli Anti-Aging Enzyme may Hold the Fountain of Youth

If you’re looking to turn back the hands of time, look no further than broccoli. Love it or hate it, this common cruciferous veggie contains a natural compound called nicotinamide mononucleotide, which has been shown to have a potent anti-aging effect on mice that “could be translated to humans.” [1]

A team of researchers from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis write in Cell Metabolism that nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN) made the cells of lab mice act younger than they were when it was added to the rodents’ drinking water. NMN is an enzyme that plays a key role in energy metabolism, and it’s found in broccoli.

NMN boosted the mice’s metabolism. They gained less age-related weight, improved their eyesight, and improved their blood sugar levels. The mice even avoided some of the genetic changes associated with aging.

The study didn’t track how long the furry little critters survived, but at least they lived their lives healthily. One can only assume they outlived mice that weren’t given NMN.

If your knee-jerk reaction to broccoli is to dry-heave, fear not: NMN is also found in other vegetables, including cucumbers, cabbage, and edamame.

Nicotinamide Mononucleotide Could Benefit Humans Too

What’s more, the benefits associated with the enzyme likely apply to humans, according to Dr. Shin-Ichiro Imai, professor of developmental biology and medicine at Washington University and senior author of the paper.

In fact, Imai is so encouraged by the results that he’s launching an early study on people, using NMN supplements in pill form.

He explained:

“If you do the math, I wouldn’t say it’s impossible entirely but probably very difficult to get the whole amount [you need] simply from natural foods.

It’s clear that in humans and in rodents, we lose energy with age. We are losing the enzyme NMN. But if we can bypass that process by adding NMN, we can make energy again. These results provide a very important foundation for the human studies.” [2]

Other Reasons to Make Friends with Broccoli

If you’re not overly concerned about drinking from (or nibbling on) the fountain of youth, there are plenty of other reasons to chow down on broccoli. For example, broccoli’s ability to lower blood sugar makes it a great food option for people who have diabetes.

Broccoli has also been shown to cut the risk of cardiovascular disease and promote heart health by preventing inflammation and atherosclerosis in the arteries. Additionally, research has found that broccoli has the ability to help to prevent cancer, including leukemia.

It’s worth throwing a handful of broccoli (and therefore nicotinamide mononucleotide) on your salad, or, if that idea turns you off, pulverize some into a hearty soup!

Bacteria in the Gut May Alter Aging Process

(Justin Deschamps) Aging is related to how the body repairs itself. This self-repair ability is tied to gut bacteria due to the fact these microorganisms are instrumental in the production of nutrients along with the mechanism by which we absorb vitamins and release toxins in the digestive tract. The following study looked at the effect of transferring healthy gut bacteria to an unhealthy subject, observing that changes took place that reduced the effects of aging.

‘Superagers’ Over 80 Have the Memory and Brain Connectivity of Twenty-Somethings

(Neuroscience News) Research published in the journal Cerebral Cortex has shown that stronger functional connectivity—that is, communication among neurons in various networks of the brain—is linked to youthful memory in older adults. Those with superior memories—called superagers—have the strongest connectivity.
