In preparing a major update of my Aging Advice web page this week, I’ve been revisiting my supplement shelf, asking why I’m taking each of these pills and whether there is new evidence, either from animals or humans.
I would be grateful to you my readers for comments on this work which is still in flux. The latest version of the Pills page will be found here, and themain page of the new Aging Advice site will be here.
Highlights of what I learned in preparing this page: There’s a New Zealand company selling the “Skulachev ion“, which I thought was years away from commercialization. I developed a new respect for Carnosine as a major boon in several ways. I am gradually coming to think that resveratrol has been over-hyped. I learned that horny goat weed has been used for hundreds of years in the Orient as an aphrodisiac.
I’m interested in what I missed and what I got wrong. Also your personal experiences with any of these supplements and comments on the format and presentation. You can comment below, or email me.
Thanks for your help!
