Scientist discovers secret to a longer, healthier life

12 August 2008

A British ageing-research scientist has discovered how people could extend their lives by as much as 30 years and has published his findings in an extraordinary new book, The Anti-Ageing Protocol.

Dr Malcolm Goyns, a leading scientist in the field of ageing research has discovered a unique dietary protocol that slows ageing and also has a prolonged anti-obesity effect.

While conducting ground-breaking research into calorie restriction (CR) diets and their effect on ageing in rodents, Dr Goyns and his collaborators found that alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) can mimic the calorie restriction diet's life-extending effects if used as part of a particular dietary protocol. This work has just been published in the scientific journal Mechanisms of Ageing & Development.

Dr Goyns describes in his book how anyone can adopt this protocol and predicted they will live a longer, healthier and more productive life. Dr Goyns explained: "The anti-ageing protocol originated from a totally unexpected finding in our scientific study. CR diets are known to greatly extend the life-spans of mammals, including humans such as those in Okinawa, Japan.

"Our experiments with rodents found that after a short period of CR dieting the animals could be allowed to feed freely and still show extended life, if their food was supplemented with ALA. What was equally surprising was that a prolonged anti-obesity effect also occurred. These observations provide exciting opportunities for anyone who wants a longer healthier life."

Lipoic acid is found in a wide variety of foods, notably kidney, heart, liver, spinach, broccoli and potatoes.

Dr Goyn has published his findings in an extraordinary new book, The Anti-Ageing Protocol. — a formula that is set to radically change our views and experiences of old age...
