Aging is a complex process, where anti-aging forces fight against aging forces. The measured balance between these forces gives us the real rate of aging. We have to boost anti-aging forces and slow down aging forces as much as possible.
Today anti-aging science (gerontology) offers two main anti-aging methods:
Method 1: Periodic fasting and caloric restriction increases the average lifespan as follows: If method implementation starts at the age of 20 to 25 years, life span will increase by 35-40 years. If started at 30-35 years, lifespan will increase by 30-35 years. If started at 40-45 years, lifespan will increase by 25-30 years. If started at 50-55 years, lifespan will increase by 20-25 years. If started at 60-65 years, lifespan will increase by 15-20 years. If started at 70-75 years, lifespan will increase by 10-15 years.

Method 2: Regular intake of anti-aging drugs/geroprotectors: these are specific drugs aimed at slowing down aging of individual organs and tissues as well as the whole organism. Expert assessment – an increase in life expectancy of 20-30 years.
These anti-aging drugs are the following:
Nowadays metformin is the most efficient medicine, which slows down aging processes and extends life span by 20-25%. Metformin is an oral anti-diabetic drug, which can help also in prevention of cancer, cardiovascular diseases and obesity.
Melatonin is a natural hormone secreted by our body in the pineal gland. It regulates the sleeping cycles. Melatonin is an antioxidant, that helps combat inflammation, inhibits tumors development. It is a geroprotector. In experiments done on mice melatonin increased lifespan of animals by 15-20%. Melatonin helps in controlling weight gain, even if the patient does not eat less.
Folic acid is an antioxidant and anti-aging agent. This vitamin reduces the risk of age-related macular degeneration. Adequate folic acid intake from diet or supplements normalizes levels of plasma homocysteine, as an independent risk factor for cardiovascular disease.
Higher daily intake of Vitamin D (4000-8000IU) in an adult can reduce the risk of lung cancer, colon cancer, breast cancer, multiple sclerosis as well as type II diabetes.
Selenium plays a huge role for human health, including areas like the immune response, neurodegeneration, cardiovascular disease, and cancer. Selenium incorporates into proteins to make selenoproteins, which are important antioxidant enzymes. The antioxidant properties of selenoproteins help prevent cellular damage from free radicals. Selenoproteins help regulate thyroid function and play a key role in the immune responce. Selenium also protects the heart by reducing the stickiness of the blood, and thereby lowering the risk of blood clotting which in turn reduces the risk of stroke and heart attack. In addition selenium supplements increase the ratio of good cholesterol to bad cholesterol in the body.
