Hugging and Chalking

This blog is about obesity and the inanity/insanity it spawns, the encroaching lawsuits and growing diet industry. Obesity is a matter of genes and personal responsibility. You can have an endocrine problem, or you can have a balance problem (too many calories and too little exercise). It’s not where you eat, but how much you eat; it’s not McDonald’s fault, or Mama’s fault, or Washington’s fault if your body is too fat or too thin. Rosabelle.

Anti-aging product, Basis

What is Basis made of and is it effective in anti-aging? Aging is not considered a disease, so the anti-aging supplements on the market can by pass the strict FDA requirements for a drug.  Research since 2013 has been exploding. Basis is a product put out by Elysium. The ingredients are all available at various stores that sell supplements, but I like this company for its outstanding Board.

Basis is a proprietary formulation of two ingredients — nicotinamide riboside and pterostilbene — in capsule form. The compounds restore levels of the coenzyme NAD+, which declines in humans beginning in our 20s, and support healthy sirtuin activity. NAD+ and sirtuins regulate more than 500 areas of cellular health.

The sirtuin family of histone deacetylases (HDACs) was named after their homology to the Saccharomyces cerevisiae gene silent information regulator 2 (Sir2). In the yeast, Sir2 has been shown to mediate the effects of calorie restriction on the extension of life span and high levels of Sir2 activity promote longevity.
