Hi Everyone,

 

I have been on the site for a couple of years but decided to start my own thread to track my annual test results.  In general my plan is:

 

1.  I have a normal stack of supplements.

2.  Each year I try one new exotic supplement

3.  Every January, I re-take a standard set of tests (currently teloyears and mydnage).

 

Overall background:

 

48yo caucasian male, non-smoker, I rarely get sick, I get extensive blood work done every 6 months.  I generally try to follow a low carb, low sugar, low grain type diet with 17/7 intermittent fasting but still eat a lot of junk/restaurant food.

 

Generally in good health except for:

1. overweight (5'11" 195 lbs) but working on it

2. small dose medication for high blood pressure

3. Undergoing surgery for periodontal disease in Jan. 2019.

 

My normal daily supplement stack looks like the following and varies slightly.  You can assume I'm taking it unless specified otherwise during any experimental period:

 

Jarrow D3 5000 IU

Life Extension Magnesium 500 mg

Life Extension Super K + K2 Complex 2x or 4x capsules

C: 0-2000 mg, any brand, could be liposomal or not

Iodoral 1/2 tablet every 10 days (it was every other day but measured way high on blood work)

Jarrow Krill Oil 600mg

Jarrow CarotenAll 1 capsule

Natural Factors SelenoExcell Selenium Yeast 200mcg

Jarrow Methyl B12 5000mcg

 

From time to time I may also mix in Kyloic garlic, BioPQQ, or Berberine.

 

I also have taken the ALCAT food sensitivity test so I know my food kryptonite.  I had several items in the severe category including tomatoes (yikes! Hard to avoid!) and tumeric (so I don't have that as a supplement).

 

I have data going back to 2017 so I will be adding that soon.

Backfilling the 2017-2018 data...

 

January 2017 baseline:

Age: 46

Teloyears: 1.02x expected length, est. age 34

mydnage: not tested

 

2017 experiment:  use astragalous-based telomere supplement to try to lengthen telomeres

 

See details in this thread:

Confusing Telomere Result

 

January 2018 re-test:

Age: 47

Teloyears: 1.25x expected length, estimated age 20

mydnage: estimated age 44

 

Conclusion: It seems to have worked, despite my controversial choice of supplement.  Teloyears reported a decrease age of 14 years.  Whether that's real or helpful is unknown.  I'm curious to see how it will measure next time, if the changes stick or if they revert to the old level.

 

Comments: One of the reasons I started with telomeres is that it's something that can be measured (although problematically).  I wish we had measurements for things like stem cell pool size/activity, and senescent cell quantity.

 

Next up will be results from 2018-2019 sometime in late January.

Early 2019 update:

 

Age: 48

Teloyears: 1.06x expected length, est. age 25

myDNAge: est. age: 46

Calcium score: 0

 

2018 Experiment:  Tried C60oo from carbon60oliveoil.com.  Tried starting a 1ml/day 6 days/week, and increased to 5 ml/day for about 8 months.  I was hoping for some improvement in hair, skin, nails, or subjective observation.  Unfortunately, there was no effect that I noticed.  I never took more than 5ml/day.  Reporting negative results is frustrating, but it's important if we're going to be honest experimenters.

 

Conclusion #1:  C60oo was ineffective for me.  Whether that's too low a dose, or just didn't work, I don't know.

 

Conclusion #2:  Some of the telomere lengthening seemed to persist.  I didn't take any telomere supplments in 2018.

 

In 2019 I'm thinking of trying NMN with ABN's booster supplement.
