When we talk about life extension we don’t talk about keeping people alive through artificial means, we actually mean extending the normal, natural life of Man.
Life is a multi-faceted concept. Life may refer to the ongoing process of which living things are a part; the period between the birth (or a point at which the entity can be considered to be living) and death of an organism; the condition of an entity that has been born (or reached the point in its existence at which it can be established to be alive) and has yet to die; and that which makes a living thing alive.
The term Life Extension now is mainly used in promoting and selling Vitamins and indeed Vitamins or Minerals seem to play an important role in extending life and in earning money for Vitamin manufacturers.
Durk Pearson and Sandy Shaw
laid the groundwork for Life Extension by practicing on their own bodies by taking controversial supplements or massive doses of supplements, and documenting the results within their own bodies. Their research led to anti-aging breakthoughs that have been exciting and significant.

CoQ10 is a nutrient found in each cell of the body. CoQ10 — also spelled CoQ 10 — is found in foods, particularly in fish and meats.
In addition to playing a significant role in the energy system of each of our cells, CoQ10 is also believed to have antioxidant properties. Many people who take CoQ10 notice that this nutrient enhances physical energy.
Melatonin is released from the pineal gland and helps maintain tissues in a young state of health.
Melatonin keeps our circadian cycle in tune as it communicates with the body’s cells.
Not only does this hormone work to maintain cell health, it appears to regulate a system of self-repair and regeneration.When this diminishes, our biological functions are impaired.
Melatonin seems to work to help improve sleep. Melatonin seems to increase the speed of falling asleep and seems to add to the quality of sleep in about 60% of people who use it.
Most recent studies also suggest that the lack of Melatonin in the body can promote breast cancer.
In a major breakthrough, researchers have linked exposure to light at night to the growth in breast-cancer tumours. The tumours grew because artificial light interfered with the ability of women to create melatonin, the hormone that regulates the body’s daytime and night rhythms.
DHEA is a steroid hormone, a chemical relation of testosterone and estrogen. It is made from cholesterol by the adrenal glands, which sit atop each kidney.
Studies in animals have shown that DHEA can prevent or delay the onset of cancer, “hardening” of the arteries, lethal viral infections, lowered immunity, obesity, and diabetes.

Life in the Future
There are visionaries today who consider the awesome benefits to human health and longevity promised by the leading edge of medical science–and what YOU can do today to take full advantage of these startling advances.
Some of these visionaries plan to live forever.
No, not just in the history books, but as living, breathing, healthy human beings.
Their idea is that if you can manage to keep your body in good shape for the next 20 years NanoTechnology and BioScience will be so advanced that you can replace or regrow parts of your body so it will never wear out.
These are the actual ideas developed by some visionaries for eternal life:
Aggressively slowing down the aging process by eating the right foods, taking vitamins and exercising; in actual fact trying to survive the next 20 years at which time BioTechnology and Nanotechnology will have become so advanced that we can replace ailing body parts at will. .
Relying on BioTechnology such as stem cell research, the ability to modify our genetic and protein codes which in turn will slow down or even reverse aging.
We have mapped out the human genome.
With this information we can now find out the specific functions of our genes.
Eventually we will be able to change the genes themselves.
We are already able to regrow teeth and soon will be able to regrow cells, tissues and organs and introduce them into our bodies without rejection.
Step three: the use of Molecular Nanotechnology.
Nanotechnology will enable us to rebuild, molecule by molecule, our whole body.
People are already working on “intelligent cells”.
These cells will actually operate as computers which can detect and destroy cancer cells and regrow diseased cells.
So, just make sure you survive the next 20 years.
