Supplements that can increase longevity

Reversing the aging process is the ultimate aspiration, but few people take it as seriously as Dave Asprey.

The former Silicon Valley executive invested millions in hacking his own biological clock.


The self-proclaimed “maverick in the health sciences entrepreneurial space” is a four-time New York Times bestselling author, CEO of Upgrade Labs, and host of a podcast called The Human Upgrade.

It says a lot about Asprey’s credentials that his lofty goal of living to 180 is not ridicule but a mixture of intrigue and expectation.

Longevity (obviously) cannot be boiled down to a single course of action and the science in this area is evolving rapidly.

That aside, GB News spoke to the rogue entrepreneur to get his views on the best supplements for longevity.

What does he take?

“There are a variety of supplements you can take to support longevity – I’ve talked about most of them in my podcast, The human upgrade“Asprey told GB News.

Before embarking on advanced activities, the entrepreneur recommends having the basics in place: minerals and a mixture of fat-soluble vitamins.

Asprey explained: “Minerals are essential to every biochemical reaction that occurs in your body. Fat-soluble vitamins D, A, K, and E help move minerals where they need to go to work their magic.

“If you don’t have enough minerals (most of us don’t), you will age faster, no matter what other supplements you take. That’s why I recommend starting first through the basics.”

Its recommendations have scientific support. In a perspective article published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Biochemist Bruce Ames of the University of California, Berkeley, touts 41 vitamins and minerals, such as magnesium and omega-3 fatty acids, that he says may contribute to healthy aging.

These substances contribute to the proper functioning of the body. If reserves become depleted, the body may have to tap into tasks such as repairing DNA damage that keep cells younger and healthier, but maintaining reserves could prevent this, according to Ames.

Once you understand these, you can start looking at “next tier” formulations, such as those containing urolithin A, says Asprey.

This compound, produced by the intestine, targets mitochondria, which are responsible for producing energy in your body.

“When your mitochondria aren’t working well, you age faster. Urolithin A encourages your body to eliminate weak mitochondria and produce new, healthier ones,” Asprey explained.

Stimulation of mitochondria benefits from the support of Doctor Mohammed Enayat.

He is experimenting with new techniques to improve these cellular “powerhouses” through his company HUM2N, which specializes in slowing and reversing the aging process.

“When your mitochondria don’t get the instructions they need from your body’s DNA to produce energy, it can damage your cells or cause them to die prematurely,” he previously told GB News .

What else does Asprey recommend?

The longevity entrepreneur recommends taking a blend of “powerful ancient plant extracts” that encourage your body to release stem cells.

As you age, the number of stem cells in your body decreases. Their ability to rejuvenate your body also diminishes as you age.

“That’s why young people recover quickly from their injuries,” Asprey said.

According to the CEO of Upgrade Labs, taking the right blend of herbal supplements can release stem cells from your bone marrow.

“These stem cells can then circulate to tissues in your body that need healing. This is an amazing and cost-effective way to harness the power of stem cells.”

It should be noted that there is little evidence to suggest that stem cell supplements can increase the number of stem cells in the body. Additional research is needed to determine the effectiveness and safety of these products for various health conditions and general health purposes.

Crazy about NAD

Asprey is also a fan of NAD boosters like nicotinamide riboside (NR), nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN), and niacinamide (a form of vitamin B3).

NAD is a coenzyme made in your body that is essential for creating energy, repairing damage, and supporting tissue function.

NAD levels decrease with age, and scientists believe that this decrease in NAD levels may contribute to the characteristics of aging.

“We know that if we can replace and increase your NAD+ levels, you will use oxygen better and produce better energy at the cellular level,” Dr. Enyat added.

Numerous studies have demonstrated that increasing NAD+ levels increases insulin sensitivity, reverses mitochondrial dysfunction, and extends lifespan.

The above supplements are some of Asprey’s favorite supplements, but they are only a fraction of what he takes each day.

“I take over 100 tablets a day. I won’t tell you everything I take because what works for me won’t necessarily work for you,” he told GB News.
