Episode 10 - Clinique La Prairie x LLAMA - Expanding life's timeline

 

 CLP x LLAMA

Mineral deficiencies can have a crippling impact on our everyday health and vitality, as well long term implications for healthspan. The food we eat and the environments we live in, play a critical role in maintaining a delicate balance of chemicals that sustain life. But even the most ideal-sounding diet can fall short of providing an essential mix of minerals. Barton Scott discovered the hard way, through ill health, that he suffered from chronic deficiencies that were severely impacting his quality of life. Myriad dietary interventions failed to resolve his issues and prompted Barton to apply his knowledge, as a chemical engineer and nutritionist, to resolving the problem. The solution, he discovered, revolved around the body's ability to absorb mineral particles. It led to him creating Upgraded Formulas, a US company that applies nanotechnology to minerals and assesses which components we need through a hair test. In this podcast interview with Peter Bowes, Barton explains the background to his company and why he believes that regular testing for heavy metal toxicity and mineral deficiencies is essential to support a healthier, happier, more productive life.

CLP x LLAMA

Longevity science has been moving at breakneck speed in recent years, reinforcing the view of some innovators that we are on the cusp of a 200-year lifespan. Whether it be longevity in a pill, artificial organs or gene therapy to cure diseases, recent breakthroughs suggest many of us already have the tools needed to live much longer and better. Sergey Young is a longevity investor and visionary with a mission to extend healthy lifespans of at least a billion people. He founded the Longevity Vision Fund to accelerate life extension through technological innovations and recently published his book, The Science and Technology of Growing Young. In this LLAMA podcast interview, Sergey explores his passion for the emerging science and explains why he believes that optimizing healthspan – extending our healthy years – is within the reach everyone. Sergey seeks, with pragmatism, to energize the aging process, celebrating what he calls the “the near horizon of longevity innovations.”
