Ageless Education provides key insights on human biome health.
Do you have gut issues or concerned about your glutathione levels and longevity? Ageless Education at People Unlimited provided some practical and progressive information for its members and attendees on this subject.
Ross Pelton, Scientific Director for Essential Formulas, and also a member of the Medical Advisory Board for the Life Extension Foundation, was a recent guest in the People Unlimited’s Ageless Education series. He gave two very informative presentations. The first discussed the role of glutathione in the body and Lactobacillus fermentum ME-3, a glutathione-producing strain of probiotic bacteria, which boosts levels of all antioxidant activity in the body.
Environmental toxicity is one of the major causes of chronic degenerative disease, which depletes glutathione levels, leading to accelerated aging. However, Ross stated that we can nutritionally modify this key factor of aging, by boosting glutathione levels in the body. Although there are many ways to do this, according to Ross nothing else comes close to the activity of ME-3, which he considers a major game-changer in this respect. ME-3 can not only boost glutathione in the gut, it can also extract it from the environment and can recycle used up glutathione; it is a complete glutathione system.
Microbiome and longevity
Ross’ second presentation was on the microbiome and longevity. One of the major benefits of the human genome sequencing project, has been the sequencing of the human microbiome. This is the bacteria in the GI tract, 99% of which reside in the large intestine in an anaerobic environment and couldn’t be studied until recently. Ross informed the attendees, that there has been cutting edge research on probiotic metabolites as a result.
For optimum health and longevity, it is essential to take care of our internal environment. Achieving balance in the numbers and different types of good bacteria and strains is key for this, as well as diversity of the microbiome. Ross discussed the popular use of probiotics, and recommended Dr. Ohhira’s probiotic, from his company Essential Formulas. He prefers this product because it has been grown in an organic environment for at least 3-5 years before it reaches our body where it is ready to go to work instantly.
Ross’ suggestions to the attendees, were to use a combination of ME-3 and Dr. Ohhira’s probiotics, which he considers to be a revolution in healthcare medicine. This was well received by People Unlimited members as a simple and highly effective way to support a daily healthy environment for living.
People Unlimited provides its members with as much health information as possible, by inviting knowledgeable speakers to present for Ageless Education. However, People Unlimited does not necessarily agree with or endorse all recommendations, and attendees are encouraged to draw their own conclusions based on this and other information.
