Faster and Stronger- Month 2 Energy X Maxx Update

Well, this is month 2 of full on Energy X Maxx usage straight from the tap so to speak. In other words, this is the off the shelf product not the pilot stuff developed a while ago. As I mentioned before I always test the stuff we make for a while and on others to make sure it works and causes no issues.

The off the shelf stuff is often the end product that comes out of the testing. In point of fact we did change the buffered ATP and malic acid doses quite a bit during the development of the product so it is fantastic to see it working the way it is!

In spite of a nasty bout of food poisoning and a Holiday flu (that was a shocker- haven’t been sick in 10 years!) that knocked at least 3 weeks out of my training schedule, and of course the endless travel and research which occasionally dips into my work out time, I have managed to continue getting faster and stronger.

The cardio especially is coming along super well. The strength training is also improving markedly but I am not as focused on it as usual because I have decided to train for some Autumn races.

Now I will never be a speedster but when you combine my age (the older age groups have thinner herds lol) and the improvements I expect at least a few podium finishes in the local races. I’ll keep you posted.

I think the biggest thing with Energy X Maxx is the mental effects that rapid progress has brought. It’s really cool to watch and feel the improvements in fitness and not have to slave away for 6 months to see some small changes!!!

If ever there was a tool to safely speed up your performance this is it.

Just remember it will take a couple of weeks of regular usage to see the benefits- this is not a thermo/ergogenic or a steroid!!!

Now for a couple of other things:

  1. Bailey, our wonderful customer service rep has come up with a really cool skin care product. It will be ready within 2-3 months and we are testing it right now. So far- Its like MAGIC! It will most certainly be available long before the skin stem cell rejuvenation product which is proving hard to get agreement on as far as scent!
  2. The telomerase support pack (upgraded from my old Telomere Edge Pack) should be available in March. I would suggest you contact Bailey and let her know if you want some when it comes out soon. The demand is going to be huge.
  3. Our stem cell growth factor derived hair growth and support solution is in testing as we speak and we are looking for a May release assuming no glitches. Again if you want to be among the first to try this get your name on Bailey’s list as there will be very limited quantities initially.
  4. The drug/concentrated nutraceutical version of my telomerase activator (not like anything on the market currently) is in the early extraction phase and remains about a year out.

So, in summary I continue to work on stuff that will buy both of us (you and me!) runway of the healthy kind until the more aggressive and expensive therapies are proven safe and become more affordable.

If you wonder what I am doing when I don’t write quite as often, this is it!!!

Signing Out to go running!

Don’t forget your key to enhanced performance is here. GET SOME!!!

Dam age ing

If you are old enough to remember the late 60’s and 70’s band known as Steppenwolf, then you might remember a song called “The Pusher”.  If you are too young and/or not a Steppenwolf fan, the song was about how drug kingpins were destroying the youth and should be promptly expunged and sent to the netherworld. They were to be damned, in other words.  Still timely I think because, believe it or not, that song popped into my head the other day when I was thinking about aging and how we might cure it.

Frankly it’s going to take an all out war and the army is pretty small.  You and me and a few thousand people, including scientists, practitioners and just plain old people who are sick of the future full of decline and bleak prospects. The rest of the world is full of non-believers.

Frankly, I don’t think you and me are ones to wither on the vine without a hell of a fight. This, and the wisdom of my dearly departed dad, is what drives me to recruit you if you haven’t joined the cause already.

It’s always been my policy to keep you informed of everything I learn and the learning is always for both of us. After all, it’s no fun being 100 years old if you don’t have anybody to play with!

I have pretty much been on the road the past three months between Europe, Vegas, Cali, and NYC but I am always learning a ton every single day. Wouldn’t have it any other way.

So today I want to update you on a couple of things I learned while out and about in that great big world. The first was the oft forgotten Carnosine which is pretty amazing.  Cardiac disease and the sequela of excess sugar metabolism are two of the biggest aging factors and two of the biggest killers out there.  Carnosine hits them both by supporting mitochondrial function, reducing intracellular protein damage (cross linking) and of course it helps you hit your workouts hard. Bottom line: it’s one serious anti-aging secret!

And speaking of mitochondria and working out — new evidence suggests that it might not just be eating too much sugar that turns us into fat slobs with diabetes as we get older.  It might all be a pre-programmed part of the aging process combined with gluttony. Turns out the mitochondria might be getting old, crapping out energy wise and not using sugar efficiently as an energy source.  CO Q10, used as medicine for heart disease and neurologic disorders in the Far East, is one big culprit here.  Co Q levels start to sag at about age 40, robbing the mitochondria of one of its main free radical defenses at a specific spot in the energy chain. The net result is a slow steady loss of the mitochondria’s ability to maintain a bio-electrical gradient (energy gradient) that it normally uses to move fuel in and energy out. No gradient, no energy. No energy, no life!

And no energy, no repair function, which accelerates ‘damn  age’ and the slippery slide to where the party ends for good.

Stop up the flow of energy and you have the equivalent of a clogged toilet in your cells. Flush it one time too many and your cells are flooded with… well you get the picture.

I am now taking 4 of my CO Q10’s and at least as many of my Carnosine caps every day because I want to prevent this avoidable mess by limiting the damn-age.

It’s a phenomenal combo that pours on the energy we both need to stay young.  And in staying young we can tell Father Time to go to Hades and stay there. To hell with getting old and Damn ageing!

Doc

Oh Yeah! I almost forgot.  Looks like Chronic Fatigue and its attendant maladies (multiple drug sensitivity, chronic pain syndromes and brain fog, etc.) are all part of the mitochondrial sewer stop up. If you know someone who suffers from CFS, let them in on the “secret sauce”- the combo of Carnosine and Co Q in high daily doses.

PS: Have a listen to that old song, The Pusher by Steppenwolf and you will understand the link!

Why Time Might Not Be Your Most Precious Commodity

You’ve heard me say it over and over, “Time is Your Most Precious Commodity!” Don’t waste it.

Now implied in there is that you are healthy enough to enjoy your life because as long as you have your health you have everything right?

Unless you get hit by a bus and die healthy!!!!

In this world we are constantly reminded that walking out the door is a risk.

I had a conversation with a friend of mine who is a health care professional. He is slightly younger than I am but like me is closing in rapidly on his 6th decade of joyous life on this planet.

He told me he is always tired and fatigued. He mentioned that he is also in chronic low-level pain. This hurts in the morning, that aches at night and it takes his eyes about 30 minutes in the morning to focus properly.**

I got to thinking about chronic pain and chronic fatigue. I realized that many many people in their 40’s 50’s and beyond are dealing with low lever chronic pain that is a MAJOR contributing factor to the lack of energy they experience.

I can also tell you that the next couple of products that are arriving over the next couple of months will primarily deal with increasing your energy reserves.

So, back to my friend. I asked about his fish oil consumption. The answer was telling, “Uh sometimes I remember.” Ok how much? “Uh one or two a day” was the sheepish reply.

Look if you want pain relief from any anti-inflammatory including fish oil you are going to have to take enough to make it count. While you may get some benefits for cardiac health at 1 or 2 a day as reported in the literature, there is a dose response curve to fish oil like anything else. Most people need 4 to 6 caps a day which is why I put 120 in my bottle!!!!

This by the way, is diet dependent not body size or weight dependent. I tested plenty of lean vegetarians and vegans who were so over blown with inflammatory Omega 6 fats that they needed a full dose of 6 a day for quite some time to rectify this deficit.

The other thing I recommend now for fatigue is the Brain Force 1.

A lot of people know about the researched potential for anti-Alzheimer effects of the Lion’s Mane mushroom (see references).

But far fewer people know about its anti-fatigue effect (references).

So, if you are tired all the time, or even if you just want to get more out of your day and have more zest doing it, you owe it to yourself to try Brain Force 1.

And here’s a tip: Try taking 6 Brain Force 1 about 30 minutes before your next work out and watch your personal bests become a thing of the past as you set new ones!!!! But don’t tell the competition.

Become a force to be reckoned with!!!*

Yours in boundless energy!

Doc

Oral Energy Supplementation Report- One Month Out

 It may seem strange for me to be giving you a 30 day report on my oral Energy Supplement Energy MAX X but the truth is this is actually the first full month I’ve had the product to use non stop.
Of course there are always iterations and trials of the iterations but I have learned that the end game is always “How does the finished product perform off the line!”  In this case the production line.
1)      Improved Endurance
2)      Improved Strength especially explosive strength
3)      Decreased recovery time and increased time to fatigue
These are the bench marks I was looking for with the off the line product.
I am happy to say that all of the above have been met in objective fashion as measured by absolute strength increases and endurance increases.
The most shocking thing was the speed-e.g. one month.  In the month that I have been taking this product I have, especially in endurance, gained what normally would have taken 3 months of solid training to achieve.
Now here is the interesting part and you could interpret this as a negative if you wanted.
  1.  I do not feel any different.  Ya know sometimes you can say, “Wow I am in really great shape!”  Well I don’t feel any different. Now frankly I wasn’t supposed to and really neither is anyone else. The proof is in the pudding or the results in this case.  Also and I have had one or two questions about this- when you take it, it’s not like having a cup of coffee or a pre work out ergogenic (thermogenic). You don’t get a buzz or a kick.  I don’t make supplements like that for the primary reason is that appeals to the 19-25 testosterone driven male segment, not the anti-aging segment and frankly, that stuff can be bad for an older heart!
  2. I use something called a Body Gem to measure my RMR (resting metabolic rate) and it has gone down by about 100-150 cals a day.  I attribute this to the decrease in resting heart rate (that is good!!!) and a similar increase in metabolic efficiency (in other words I AM in better shape!).
 
So there you have it an honest to goodness pros and cons on what I consider one of my greatest products of 2017 and/or ever and a worthy successor to the old energy product that will remain nameless for legal reasons – but it’s the one a lot of people wanted.
Couple Energy MAX X with Mito QE and you have a fantastic way to support your mitochondria, smooth out the aging process and help your get your fitness potential closer to your genetic potential!

Inches to Pounds Part 2 – My Challenge to You

In a moment I will ask you to look at two pictures and make a judgment call. Think of it as a little contest.

But before I do that I want to give you a bit of info that may help you “win” this one.

Several years ago I wrote a little blog called “Inches to Pounds”. I wasn’t doing anything I don’t normally do- just sharing my years of experience with you the reader.

It turns out that over the years that blog has become the absolute number one “best seller” on the Dr Dave hit list. If you haven’t seen it, it lives here. It tells you about a part of my life like a lot of my blogs do. It tells you about what I saw what I learned and what I created to deal with some seemingly unsolvable problems  that were afflicting me as well as my patients.

Today’s blog picks up where that left off and details how I have managed to continue how to improve people’s lives and continue to keep my own weight under control. I can also fulfill the original premise and tell you a rough formula for converting inches lost to pounds lost.

But before we get there have a look at the two pictures of me:

One was taken in 2006. Which picture was that? One was taken in early October of this year (2014). Which one is it?

If you are having some trouble then understand this. You are looking at 8 years of difference. What you should be seeing if I am following the curve most people are is 1) Increasing body weight as body fat 2) Worsening posture 3) visible and obvious signs of moving into my mid 50’s.

The fact that it is hard to do that should tell you I have solved the equation- the equation of staying young and lean!

More importantly it should tell you that everything I tell you is tested by me and working in me and YOU CAN HAVE IT TOO.

Read what I say and do what I say in the emails and blogs and you cannot fail!

OK here is more info for you.

The “Inches to Pounds” formula is markedly affected by the type of diet you are on. If you are on a lowered calorie “balanced diet” that consists of more carbs than fats and proteins you can reduce the number of inches you will lose by about 35%.

To make this formula work more closely you need to be on a ketogenic diet.

Here is the rough formula: For every 10 pounds you lose while dieting you can expect 1 inch from your waist, and one half an inches from your hips. If you have problem areas like love handles or fat thighs keep in mind you will have to diet longer and reduce your body fat more to affect those areas.

In terms of body fat reduction, for every 2% reduction in body fat you will see similar reductions in your waist and belly fat.

Somewhere around 15% body fat you will see your abs and by 12% you should see veins beginning to appear in you abdominal area indicating you are indeed lean. The presence of abs and vasculature is a pretty good indicator you are melting excess body fat.

Now a note to weight lifters and body builders- you probably already know this. Your absolute strength will decrease with weight and calorie reduction. But you will look better and be healthier. That may not be your goal, but the latter especially is mine. Supporting large amounts of muscle mass is fine as long as you understand it represents the aesthetics of health, not health itself. Your choice!

Getting to this healthy level and maintaining it often requires help. I have, do and probably will always face challenges maintaining a healthy bodyweight and the wonderful sugar and cholesterol numbers that accompany it.

And as I can tell you, none of us ever tires of hearing “You Look Great”!

OK now, drum roll please.

The picture of me in blue jean shorts and with a shaved chest (This was NOT my idea- the photographer insisted LOL) was taken in 2006 after a photo shoot for a fitness project called Down Under Strength. Some of you may remember it. The picture in the green shorts and unshaven chest was taken just over a month ago. If you have a moment send me a comment on facebook and let me know if you picked the right pic!

 

 

Thanks,

Can You Train Your Genes?!

When One month of Effort Yields 3 Months of Results

Based on Science or Based on Results?

Today marks “The Official” Launch of Energy X Maxx.

Now I want to share my experiences with you.

It may seem strange for me to be giving you a 30 day report on my oral Energy Supplement Energy X MAXX but the truth is this is actually the first full month I’ve had the product to use non stop.

Of course there are always iterations and trials of the iterations but I have learned that the end game is always “How does the finished product perform off the line!” In this case the production line.

The key features of this product can be found on the product page but here it is in a nutshell:

  1. Improved Endurance
  2. Improved Strength especially explosive strength
  3. Decreased recovery time and increased time to fatigue

These are the bench marks I was looking for with the off the line product.

I am happy to say that all of the above have been met in objective fashion as measured by absolute strength increases and endurance increases.

The Food Nutrient Exercise Axis of Aging and Flash Sale Update

OK today we take a short break before bringing you some more flash deals but I will mention one product you should have; horrendous diet. It’s not on sale but its inexpensive and packed full of direct practical advice that bears on pretty much everything I’ve said during the MEB sale and will say in today’s email.

There is no doubt that tons of science supports the interplay between food choices, calorie choices, and exercise choices and “successful aging”.

Let’s define successful aging as more years of life AND more life in those years.

I have been seeing a google news alert that quotes a famous scientist as saying, “You can’t extend your life”. What nonsense. Life spans have been getting longer for over a decade now albeit slowly. But most people really don’t want to talk about more years. Many add immediately, “What’s the point of living longer if you are not healthy?” Duh!!!!

That kind of thinking goes right along with the “you can’t live longer” mentality.

Actually, its fine by me. I am not exactly interested in having those people that chose not to be around or healthy be here longer either!

But it is a choice.

Lot’s of people would just as soon look great, feel great, do great and enjoy their lives. The good news is that all this scientific gobbled gook will help you achieve just that- so here goes!

I want to harp one more time on the role of the Mitochondria in aging, even though at this moment that part of the sale is over. I hope you didn’t miss it!

I said a while back (2012 to be exact) that I consider the epigenome to be the interface between the environment and your genes. For our purposes the epigenome is that “stuff around the DNA” and is responsible for deciding which genes are turned on and which ones are turned off.

Pretty important stuff and a major player in how well you age.

The bulk of aging and age-related disease including possibly cancer is determined by mitochondria health not always genetic health. This is the reason we have so many uncured diseases today- we’ve not paid enough attention to the role of mitochondrial health.

These powerhouses not only supply the energy for what helps us stay young active and virile (and yes looking and feeling good!) they also determine in a big way how inflamed our cells are and how much damage that inflammation does.

So, in summary:

  • They directly and indirectly affect the aging process via things like telomeres and even mutation rate.
  • They directly and indirectly determine how much energy we have to use for what we want and what keeps us healthy versus lost energy, free radical oxidation and heat (think cancer and thermal imaging!)
  • They directly and indirectly talk to our genes along with other mechanisms turning them on and turning them off.
    Frankly I could write a book on just those 3 sentences but I’d rather make supplements to maximize and optimize the consequences of mitochondrial biology.

That is what the Mitochondrial Energy Bundle was about.

If you missed it let our dear Bailey in customer service know and maybe, just maybe I’’ bring it back for a day.

It’s that important.

In the meantime, Monday will have something new for you to save on.

And here is a quick update on what the next couple of months hold:

My new Sleep Formula
My new Male Enhancement Formula
My new Telomere Support Formula
My new Ketogenic Formula

They could hit anytime but I will not talk about them more until they have a specific production date. You may here about at least one of them in the next week so stay tuned!

‘Nuff Said.

Keep the Holiday Youthful Spirit!

Here is your last chance to get the absolute best pricing ever and free shipping on these Brand New Products!

OK- today’s little science lesson.

The mitochondria do not divide in the same fashion that the cells that house them do. Cells more or less just split in half and double the DNA and the cellular machinery. But the mitochondria do something that is more like a salamander that grows a new limb after one is hacked off. They kind of grow and ooze and enlarge into a new space and then wall off more or less half of the now doubled space in a process called biogenesis.

They can also donate parts of themselves to other mitochondria to “heal” them and improve their function.
Finally when they degenerate or implode, some of their material is usually recycled in the body’s very own green revolution!
Mitochondrial are unappreciated in the aging process. Not just because of their role in energy generation that can fuel the ongoing cell repair processes, but because of their role in signaling.

For instance, one of my favorite DNA components, the telomere, which keeps biological age and time, “talks” to the mitochondria and vice versa even though they are in different places in the cell and separated by the nuclear wall.

Telomere length and health let’s the mitochondria known when to start scuttling the ship so to speak by increasing heat and free radical generation. This is part of the aging process I have written to you about many times called senescence.
The inflammatory free radical bomb that starts leaking like a bad warhead in the individual cell can poison and age many other cells in its vicinity leading to chain reaction that drives aging and dysfunction.

Not good!

Short telomeres also can shorten life- YOURS!

So remember that when you sign up for the Mitochondrial Energy Bundle

It all ends very so though so Act Now!

Doc

PS I think I will give you a day off and restart on Monday with the Flash Sale. We wouldn’t want to intimidate the competition LOL!

Another Reason Why You Want Healthy Powerhouses in Your body!

Quite some time ago a fellow by the name of Roskelly did a fascinating experiment.

He took the nuclei (where the chromosomes and genes are) from cancer cells and transferred them into enucleated healthy cells that also had healthy mitochondria.

The result: NO CANCER!

Then he did the opposite and took cancerous mitochondria and transferred them into cells whose mitochondria had been removed but they still had a healthy nucleus.

The result: Cancerous transformation occurred.

Now there was a lot of criticism of this research because it was done at a time when it is possible some “other cellular” components could have “contaminated” the results. Techniques have gotten much better and when the experiment was essentially repeated a few years ago the results were the same.

At the very least it suggests that mitochondria play a pivotal role in causing or preventing cancer.

I want to remind you how many major diseases of aging have no known cause and no known cure.

Alzheimer Disease, Congestive Heart Failure. Parkinson’s (which responds to Co Q therapy in some cases!) to name just a few. I would like to suggest that my fellow scientists have a serious look at the role of mitochondria in the diseases of aging- the diseases we all face.

I want to remind you about the amazing Holiday Sale we are Having on MEB- the Mitochondria Energy Bundle.

You get:

  • Mito QE retail $59.95
  • Energy X MAXX retail $64.95

That is a $190 value at a whopping 50 bucks off for your continuity subscription order.

And free shipping in CONUS.

Ok That is the Sales Pitch. Here is some science that will hopefully let you know why I have been researching this topic in medicine for about 5 years now in detail.

 

I’d all so love to see them all get on MEB!!!!

Celebrate Your Health by Getting more of it!
