Hi everyone,

Because I haven´t seen a post yet which asked about any general conclusions about supplements for longevity/anti-aging/increasing life-span, I decided to make this post.

Well first off, with all respect, it´s my own opinion this site is pretty chaotic. I think LongeCity is amazing, and I love all the longevity guru´s here, but the site would do better with some ´cleaning´. I intend this post to help bring more order to LongeCity on this topic. This site contains a lot of info, that´s why I ask (especially to older members) to post their general conclusions about supplements as short as possible in this post. Perhaps add a link to another post or site if the info is too long. I think everyone has their interest in this post in order to learn from each other. I would probably read old studies others have already drawn conclusions on weeks, months or years ago. This goes for others as well. This is a very ineffective way of doing research as a team.

I have interest on my own to ask about these supplements as I am pretty sure my diet and lifestyle are already in check. The only think I might want to try again is intermittent fasting and perhaps buy some pets.

There are so many supplements out there which claim to have longevity/anti-aging/life-span increasing effects that it became somewhat chaotic to me. F.e., here is a list of all supplements I came across: metformin, glucosamine, rapamycin, ibuprofen, paracetemol, aspirin, lithium, NMN, PQQ, NR, resveratrol, quercetin, C60oo, Centro, MitoQ, CoQ10, NAD (basis) and acarbose.

You might want to share your motivation for some supplements in particular as everyone has their own reasons to supplement; some might be (very) inexpensive, others might be based high-quality studies like meta-analyses or long-term RCTs, others are simply experimenting on themselves. 
I also have a post about known negative side effects in particular for certain supplements/herbs/spices. If you have some convincing evidence, please share it here: http://www.longecity...es/#entry836469. I thought about asking this question there too, but that might become chaotic as well.

Thank you for sharing.

Basis is just NR and pterostilbene (a silbenoid, probably more potent cousin to resveratrol).

NR and NMN are to increase NAD+ levels. NAD by itself isn’t a proven treatment.

Just those corrections.

There are more combinations of supplements than can possibly be tested. Ever. That's the truth.

Epitalon is probably the best telomerase activator out there, It was very expensive last time I checked. Probably needs to be on the list? Also, glisodin to increase sod1.

Also tagged with one or more of these keywords: longevity, anti-aging, lifespan, life-span, supplement, supplements, conclusion, conclusions, general, anti aging
