Re: Skin and Collagen

Re: Skin and Collagen

The benefit of oral supplementation is that it will also increase collagen production in tendons, ligaments etc. but if you are mostly interested in combatting skin ageing on your face it makes sense to apply it topically. NewLifeScience, another potential dietary intervention is increasing the inta...

Re: Not All Supplements Improve Heart Health Or Delay Death

I wonder whether we would continue to see that negative correlation with vitamin D and calcium if it were paired up with vitamin K. Another issue is that even if a specific supplement does not increase lifespan it may still improve quality of life and extend healthspan (e.g. lutein and cognitive dec...

Re: Age-related hair loss and vitamin E

We are slowly moving away from the main topic of nutrition but it is true that a small minority of people will report ED after taking 5α-reductase enzyme inhibitors like finasteride or dutasteride. This side-effect might be at least partially attributed to the nocebo effect as people also report the...

Re: Age-related hair loss and vitamin E

I agree with Fred, balding is not just about the levels of DHT, it has a lot to do with the sensitivity to DHT which varies a lot depending on one's DNA. Then there are also environmental factors such as stress, diet etc. Some ethnicities are more prone to it than others and there can be quite a lot...

Blueberries (anthocyanins) reverse brain ageing

Anthocyanidins derived from blueberries are capable of only crossing the blood-brain barrier and in addition they also localise in brain regions involved in learning and memory (such as the hippocampus). According to Shukkit-Hale 2019 , the brain is particularly vulnerable to oxidative stress as it...
