INTRODUCTION Fasting is an ancient practice that has its roots in religious and healing practices, tracing back to ancient Greece and days of Hippocrates and Plutarch, who famously said “Instead of using medicine, rather, fast a day.” During 14th century Renaissance, fasting was frequently employed to bring about physical and spiritual renewal, as well as a form of cleanse before warriors were sent to wars. In different religions, the practice of fasting is associated with penitence, including with Muslims during Ramadan and with Roman Catholics during Lent1. Fasting is also practiced by Buddhists during times of intensive meditation as a method of practicing self-control. The definition of fasting is “to abstain from food.” In the 18th century, fasting was used by European physicians to prevent and treat various illness, ranging from bowel ailments to respiratory diseases to joint symptoms. More recently, there is ample evidence based on recent clinical studies that fasting or intermittent caloric restriction - when carefully employed by healthcare providers - can improve patients’ wellness and health outcomes.

The obesity epidemic is now recognized as a global chronic disease with significant metabolic consequences, including coronary heart disease, hyperlipidemia, hypertension,

and diabetes2. While weight loss leads to beneficial changes in these metabolic conditions, the degree of improvement seen in the reduction of blood glucose level, fasting lipids, and inflammation profiles occurs independent of the weight loss3,4. In recent years, various caloric restriction regimens have also been shown to reduce fasting insulin levels and improve hepatic insulin sensitivity, leading to a reduction in visceral adiposity and fatty liver disease3,4. One of the main benefits of fasting rests in our body’s natural ability to downregulate important nutrientsensing pathways, which in turn stimulate a protective response that results in stress resistance5,. Perhaps the most well-categorized nutrient sensing pathways are the target of rapamycin (mTOR), insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1), and protein kinase A (PKA). It has been established that the key regulators of these nutrient sensing pathways include glucose, amino acids, and the energy status within the cell5-7. There are several distinct methods of fasting, including time-restricted eating, modified fasting (including alternate-day fasting and 5:2 regimens), and fasting mimicking diets (See Table 1)3,7,8. These categories are separated by differences in duration of fasting, as well as the different physiological impact induced by distinct dietary restriction. It has been hypothesized that there is an optimal amount of time during

FASTING: Role in Wellness, Metabolic Health and Inflammation

Table 1: Types of Fasting Types of Fasting

Description

Example

Time-Restricted Eating (TRE)

A daily pattern of eating usually conducted between 4-8 hours. The rest of the day would be non-eating hours or fasting.

16:8 Diet or 20:4 (Warrior) Diet

Modified Fasting

A pattern of eating little to no calorie intake conducted 2 to 3 times per week.

Alternate Day Fasting or 5:2 Diet (2 days per week of severe caloric restriction of 500-600 kcal/d)

Fasting Mimicking Diet (FMD)

Dietary plan utilizing specific food ingredients x 5 consecutive days each month, which seeks to replicate the benefits of fasting while still providing calories and nutrients

which the body needs to be in the fasting mode in order to induce prolonged and physiologically pronounced changes. This brief review of the various regimens of fasting aims to define the rationale to support each type of fast as it pertains to optimal metabolic health.

TIME RESTRICTED EATING Time restricted eating (TRE) gains its roots from original studies on circadian rhythms9-10. Disruptions in these daily cycles of ~24 h that control a multitude of physiological and behavioral processes lead to physiologic effects on energy metabolism11, gastrointestinal motility and microbiota12, and sleep-wake cycles. TRE has been defined as a daily eating pattern that involves consumption of all daily nutrients within a < 4-8-hour time frame; there is no distinction as to the composition of the nutrition; rather, the focus is restriction of timing as to when food is consumed. The mechanism by which the circadian rhythm is regulated is complex and can be impacted by nutrient consumption. The transcription activators, which are involved in circadian regulation are closely influenced by the nutrient sensing pathways, including mTOR and AKT, as well as other pathways that are downregulated during fasting. As such, perturbations in timing of food/nutrient intake result in metabolic changes through disruptions of the circadian control and downstream transcription activation. There is new evidence to support that TRE may help to reinforce circadian rhythmicity leading to weight loss efficacy and improvement in insulin sensitivity. While clinical data are still sparse in this emerging field, in a recent 16-week feasibility trial, eight overweight individuals were instructed to consume their entire daily

3 consecutive cycles of Fasting Mimicking Diet.

caloric intake over the span of a self-selected 8 h period to determine if this would lead to a reduction in body weight. The study found all subjects not only were able to reduce their eating duration, but this was associated with lost weight (average of 3.27 kg)13. Although the reduction in eating time also induced a decrease in estimated caloric intake - which may have contributed to the weight loss observed - there is new evidence to show that the benefits of TRE may be independent of weight loss. Additional metabolic benefits seen include reduction in total cholesterol, TGs, glucose, insulin, inflammatory biomarkers interleukin 6 and CRP, as well as improvements in insulin sensitivity13,14. The long-term metabolic benefits associated with eating or not eating breakfast are of great research and public interest since previous studies showed greater weight loss and better metabolic profile in those with regular breakfast intake. In one recent study, participants skipping breakfast were hungrier at lunchtime and had higher plasma levels of ghrelin (important in triggering hunger)15. Fully understanding the potential importance of aligning food intake with daytime hours for metabolic health in humans requires additional large-scale studies.

MODIFIED FASTING (MF) REGIMENS Modified fasting (MF) regimens go by many definitions in the literature, but will be defined as very little (~25% energy restriction) to no calorie intake conducted 2-3 times per week; the majority of studies discussed here will represent the 2-day non-contiguous food restriction each week (5:2 diet) or alternate days of 24-hour water only fast (ADF). Animal studies with MF regimens have shown upregulation of autophagy, stress resistance, and antioxidant activity, as well as extension of lifespan

while decreasing cellular proliferation16,17. However, in clinical studies, the results have been conflicting. In a 1-year trial, 112 subjects who had a BMI between 30-45 kg/ m2 followed the 5:2 diet meal plan18. After 1 year, the treatment group with intermittent caloric restriction had similar weight loss as compared to those on continuous energy restriction (8.0 kg in the MF group versus 9.0 kg, p = 0.6) and improvements in their metabolic profile were also similar. Both groups reduced energy intake by average of 27%. In a separate study, 107 premenopausal women with a BMI between 24-40 kg/m2 followed a 5:2 regimen or continuous calorie restriction over 6 months19. In this study, the women in the MF group had comparable weight loss with the group on continuous calorie restriction (6.4 kg compared to 5.6 kg, respectively; P= 0.4). Comparable body fat reduction and cardiovascular risk marker reduction were also observed between the groups; however, in this one trial, there was slightly greater reduction in fasting serum insulin levels in the MF group19. Given the totality of current evidence, the overall metabolic benefits of MF regimens are not superior to those of continuous energy restriction. As such, additional large-scale prospective studies would be needed to determine true long-term metabolic benefits.

FASTING MIMICKING DIET (FMD) Prolonged fasting (PF) can be described as an extension in duration of the fast, in that it is longer than 2-3 days; PF typically is defined by water only fasting of 4 or more consecutive days. In animal and clinical studies, PF effects a metabolic switch triggering ketosis as well as induction of autophagy and reversal of immunosenescence20,21. With an extended period of fasting (>72hrs), studies have demonstrated a greater upregulation of aging resistance transcription factors such as FOXO as well as antioxidant enzymes SOD2, Gpx1, and GSR22,23. Moreover, there is evidence that with an extended >72h fast, there is an augmented down-regulation of key regulators of the nutrient sensing pathways, which accelerate aging, such as IGF-1 and mTOR24. While metabolic benefits of prolonged fasting (PF) are well defined, barriers of this regimen include poor compliance, increased risk of dehydration and electrolyte imbalance, particularly in the elderly. Due to these difficulties the Fasting Mimicking Diet (FMD) was developed, a novel modality that mimics fasting with a diet while still allowing consumption of limited calories and selected nutrients25. The diet is a five-day regimen of low protein, moderately low carbohydrate, and moderately high fat that is moderately restricted in calories (800-1100 calories). In recent animal studies, the Fasting Mimicking Diet was found to decrease IGF-1, reduce visceral fat mass, extend median lifespan, promote neurogenesis, enable hepatic regeneration, and increase hematopoietic and mesenchymal stem and

18

progenitor cells25. In a published clinical study, just following three consecutive cycles of FMD, participants lost an average of 3% of body weight while maintaining lean muscle mass. Improvements in metabolic parameters such as C-reactive protein, triglycerides, fasting blood sugar, and blood pressure, were observed26. Currently, multiple clinical studies are ongoing to evaluate the effects of the FMD in patients with metabolic syndrome, inflammatory bowel disease, and breast cancer (FMD was previously found to differentially sensitize tumors to chemotherapy in murine models27).

BEYOND METABOLIC BENEFITS Autoimmune and allergic diseases such as lupus, asthma, multiple sclerosis, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, and rheumatoid arthritis are characterized by dysfunctional T cell regulation, which in part is propagated by age associated inflammation. In the example of multiple sclerosis, which is characterized by T cell mediated demyelination and neurodegeneration of the central nervous system, Fasting, with an FMD regimen, lead to improvement in patient symptoms and positive changes in self-reported HealthRelated Quality of Life (HRQoL) in a clinical trial28. In the animal model, fasting results in improvements in neuronal regeneration along with remyelination at the demyelinated lesions through simulation of myelin production and suppression of inflammation28. Similarly, in murine models of rheumatoid arthritis and inflammatory bowel disease, caloric restriction through prolonged fasting resulted in reversal of autoimmunity generated by aberrant pathways of similar T cell activation 29,30 . In a study with 53 RA patients, randomly assigned to either a control diet or prolonged fasting, patients in the fasting group reported significant improvement in clinical parameters as well as laboratory parameters such as erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) and C-reactive protein (CRP) that are correlated with RA disease severity31. Similarly, a recently published study in patients with inflammatory bowel disease with active flares associated with elevated CRP, intervention with a fasting simulating regimen lead to improvement in multiple inflammatory markers29. The beneficial immunomodulatory effect seen with disease improvement after fasting is also, in part, related to changes in gut microflora which reduce T cell numbers and intestinal infiltration while promoting gut regeneration32.

WHAT’S NEXT? In murine models as well as other preclinical and preliminary clinical studies involving human subjects, caloric restriction through various fasting regimens has shown early promise in providing health benefits such as weight loss (particularly of visceral adipose tissue), reduction in markers

FASTING: Role in Wellness, Metabolic Health and Inflammation

of systemic inflammation, improvement in metabolic parameters (including blood pressure and fasting glucose), as well as reversal of hepatic steatosis18,20,25,26. However, important clinical questions remain: Is employment of a routine, fasting regimen sustainable for most patients long term? Which patient will most benefit from a specific fasting regimen in promoting his/her metabolic health? In animal studies, it has been shown that various forms of fasting reduce progression of cancers (including colorectal, liver, breast, and kidney), likely through an impact on inflammatory as well as epigenetic modulation through nutrient sensing pathways33,45. While additional studies are needed, it is exciting to note that the one major metabolic change associated with caloric restriction is a

dramatic improvement in insulin sensitivity and reversal of age-related oxidative stress – both of which are important drivers of progression of diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. While this represents a tremendous opportunity to improve cardiometabolic health, it is important to appreciate that not all caloric restriction regimens confer similar or equal benefits. As such, future studies evaluating efficacy of fasting interventions for specific diseases or health conditions should carefully be defined based on the type of fasting regimen employed. Given the wealth of new published studies, fasting regimens may present a safe, promising, nonpharmacological approach for weight loss as well as to facilitate metabolic improvements for healthy individuals and certain patient populations.

Topical Progesterone, Not Synthetic Progestins Or Oral Progesterone, Should Be Considered as A Companion for Estradiol Replacement Therapy to Lower Breast Cancer Risk.

By: David Zava, PhD The following article is not endorsed and/or supported by The American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine. The purposes of this publication do not imply endorsement and/or support of any author, company or theme related to this article.

In 2002, several large-scale clinical studies were published on the risks of using conventional FDAapproved hormone therapy on breast cancer incidence in postmenopausal women. These were the Women’s Health Initiative (WHI) and Million Women’s (Lancet 2019, Manson 2019) studies published from women using FDA-approved estrogens and progestogens in the United States and Great Britain, respectively. Both studies came to the same conclusion that estrogen therapy, mostly in the form of oral conjugated equine estrogens, by itself did not significantly increase the risk of breast cancer and, to the surprise of many, was associated with a lower risk. However, when estrogen was combined with a synthetic progestin to prevent uterine cancer, the breast cancer risk increased 1.5 to 2-fold. Virtually all forms, of which there are many, of synthetic progestins increased risk about the same extent. Smaller studies suggested that FDA-approved oral progesterone, which was not as widely used, did not increase risk in combination with estrogen therapy. These results led to widescale panic among postmenopausal women using conventional estrogen and progestogen (both synthetic progestins and natural progesterone)

28

therapies and a precipitous drop in prescriptions for these forms of HRT (Lancet 2019). Many women stopped cold turkey all forms of hormone replacement therapy which significantly diminished their quality of life. Adverse estrogen deficiency symptoms that were effectively suppressed with estrogen therapy (e.g. hot flashes and night sweats, sleep disturbances, memory issues, incontinence, vaginal dryness, depression, weight gain, etc.) resurfaced with a vengeance in many women, as did risk for diseases of advanced aging (e.g. bone loss and osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease, stroke, diabetes, senile dementia, Alzheimer’s disease). Women were left frightened between “damned if you do and damned if you don’t”, and a large majority chose not to continue HRT. Many health care providers refused to prescribe hormone therapy until more information about risks were made available through clinical trials. When these and other studies emerged in 2002, John Lee, MD, and I along with Jenny Hopkins had just published our book entitled, “What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Breast Cancer: How Hormone Balance Can Help Save Your Life”. The short of the book is that if your

hormones are out of balance and you are suffering from symptoms and conditions of advancing age, meaning the transition into menopause and beyond, then you should replenish your hormones back to physiological levels with the same hormones that your body made when you were healthy early middle age. This meant if you were to use estrogen replacement therapy (ERT) you would use estradiol and/or estriol, not a synthetic estrogen like ethinyl estradiol (synthetic estrogen found in birth control pills) or a conjugated horse estrogen (Premarin). And if you were taking a progestogen to help balance the estrogen and protect against its proliferative effects, you would use bioidentical progesterone, not a synthetic progestin like medroxyprogesterone acetate (Provera) or other synthetic â&#x20AC;&#x153;fakeâ&#x20AC;? progesterone. We already knew from earlier studies published several years before WHI that the synthetic progestins were increasing the incidence of breast cancer (Lee-Zava 2002-Chapter 11). As a research scientist at that time who had spent 20+ years researching and publishing on the role of estrogen and progestogen binding to their receptors and regulating breast cell proliferation and differentiation it was clear from the research literature and smaller clinical studies that the natural hormone progesterone, when delivered topically at a physiological dose (25 mg) protects normal breast tissue from the growth promoting actions of estrogens (Chang 1995). In the breast cancer book we delved into more of what the scientific literature says causes breast cancer and what can be done to help prevent it, like avoiding bad foods and environmental chemicals, making sure you eat good nutritious foods with plenty of colored vegetables, exercising in moderation, getting adequate sleep in the dark, reducing stress as much as possible to lower cortisol-induced estrogen, and taking nutritional supplements that bolster the army of antioxidants that protect against environmental toxins that convert good estrogens to bad ones (Cavalieri 1997, Miao 2019). And if your hormones are out of balance, based on testing their levels in body fluids that represent the bioavailable fraction that enters cells, use physiological amounts of bioidentical hormones to adjust them to levels when you were younger and healthier. What has been crystal clear about bioidentical hormone therapy is that if used correctly and in physiological amounts, it will significantly reduce risk but is no guarantee you will never develop breast cancer. Fast forward about 20 years to present. Several recent

meta-analyses of the risk of breast cancer with FDAapproved or equivalent, for non-US countries, estrogen and progestogen therapies, shed some new light on risk of HRT for breast cancer. These studies (US, British) mostly just reiterated what we already knew, that estrogen therapy only increases breast cancer risk slightly, but significantly when combined with synthetic progestins (Lancet 2019). The meta-analysis of prospective studies of slightly over 100,000 women using estrogen alone or estrogen combined with progestogens (mostly synthetic), but also oral progesterone, revealed that estrogen therapy alone was only associated with a slight increase in risk, but when combined with a synthetic progestin the risk was approximately doubled after 5 years and doubled again at 10 years of use. No question, synthetic progestins are bad for the breasts and should not be used, especially for women who want to reap the many benefits of hormone therapies their entire lives. Most surprising was that this study also reported that FDA-approved oral bioidentical progesterone, combined with estrogen, carried the same approximate 2-fold higher risk at 5-10 years, but strangely had no increased risk less or greater than that (Lancet 2019). No data was available for topical progesterone combined with estrogens perhaps because very few, if any, clinical studies have been carried out in the US or Great Britain and surrounding European countries using natural progesterone delivered topically. Despite research and small clinical studies showing that natural progesterone delivered topically directly to the breasts of humans (Chang 1995) and primates protects against estrogen-stimulated cell proliferation of normal mammary epithelial cells, a risk factor for breast cancer, no large prospective randomized clinical studies have been carried out to investigate if topical progesterone therapy is associated with reduced risk for developing breast cancer. The reason for this is not based on science, but economics. Progesterone cannot be patented; however, progesterone combined with a special delivery system can be, as seen with several forms of FDA-approved oral progesterone (Prometrium and Bijuva). Oral progesterone, however, while it protects the endometrial lining, may not raise progesterone to a level high enough to counter the growth-promoting actions of estrogens in the breast tissue (Sitruk-Ware 1997).

Topical Progesterone, Not Synthetic Progestins Or Oral Progesterone, Should Be Considered as A Companion for Estradiol Replacement Therapy to Lower Breast Cancer Risk.

What is clear is that anything that reduces excessive estrogen burden, be it progesterone, natural or synthetic aromatase inhibitors, diet with more fiber and phytochemicals with colored vegetables, exercise, stress reduction, better sleep habits, etc., translates to lower breast cancer risk. That is what progesterone does. It lowers cell proliferation by down-regulating estrogen receptors, preventing further estrogenmediated stimulation of cell proliferation and redirects differentiation through progesterone interaction with estrogen-regulated cellular progesterone receptors. Progesterone, via its activation of 17 beta hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 2 (see diagram below), also increases the conversion of estradiol, a potent estrogen with high affinity for cellular estrogen receptors, to estrone, a weak inert estrogen (Lee-Zava, 2002). Progesterone also enhances synthesis of sulfotransferase, an enzyme that then sulfates estrone to estrone sulfate, which is unable to enter cells and serves as a circulating estrogen precursor that must be converted back through two enzymatic steps, sulfatase and 17 beta hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase 1, to estradiol.

Diagram depicts the progesterone-regulated metabolism of E2 to E1 and then to E1-SO4, and then Cyp1A1 and Cyp1B1 conversion, respectively, to 2- and 4-hydroxy estrogens and their further oxidation to 2and 4-quinones. For details see reference (Cavalieri). What is poorly understood in the scientific/clinical community is that progesterone has dual actions in its effects on estrogen-stimulated cell proliferation. At the lower luteal levels (about 1-10 ng/ml) progesterone synergizes with estrogen to promote cell proliferation

30

with little differentiation. If insufficient progesterone is produced in the presence of high estradiol, as often occurs at perimenopause with compromised luteal function, proliferation may be higher than with estradiol alone (Sitruke Ware). However, at higher luteal levels (10-30 ng/ml) progesterone counters the growth-promoting actions of estrogen by downregulating ER, and through induction of cellular PR redirects the cellular machinery to drive quiescence and differentiation, causing proliferation to come to a halt. If inadequate progesterone is present, as often happens at the transition to menopause (perimenopause) when the corpus luteum fails to produce adequate progesterone but abundant estrogen (low Pg/E2 ratio), then the combination of higher physiological estrogen and lower luteal progesterone (in range, but low-normal) will often result in persistent proliferation and the clinical manifestation of fibrocystic and painful breasts. Excessive proliferation in the absence of progesterone increases risk for gene mutations that have the potential to lead to increased breast cancer risk. As shown in the diagram above, estrogens in excess, in the absence of progesterone and with exposure to environmental toxins induce the cytochrome enzyme Cyp1B1 that converts beneficial estradiol to potentially toxic and mutagenic 4-catechol estradiol) (see diagram above, Cavalieri 1997, Miao 2019). During this perimenopausal transition is when the rate increase of breast cancer is greatest. Retrospective clinical studies have shown that the higher the luteal progesterone level five years prior to breast cancer diagnosis, the lower the risk of developing breast cancer (Micheli 2004), so it is important to keep progesterone balanced with estradiol, especially during the menopause transition when estrogen metabolite damage is most likely to occur as shown in a recent study on estrogen metabolite formation and breast cancer risk (Miao 2019). As mentioned, oral progesterone, because it is mostly degraded (90-95%) in the GI tract and liver to metabolites with no capacity to bind and activate PR, may not reach sustained luteal levels to counter the growth-promoting actions of estrogens. Based on saliva, capillary blood, and tissue levels of progesterone only topically applied progesterone (Du 2014) can achieve capillary blood and tissue levels of progesterone high enough to counter the proliferative actions of estrogens. While small clinical studies have shown that topical

ANTI - AGING MEDICAL NEWS â&#x20AC;˘ WINTER 2019


Topical Progesterone, Not Synthetic Progestins Or Oral Progesterone, Should Be Considered as A Companion for Estradiol Replacement Therapy to Lower Breast Cancer Risk.

progesterone used at physiological dosing (25-50 mg) effectively reduces estrogen-induced proliferation of the mammary epithelium in humans (Chang 1997), this form of therapy has not been tested in large scale prospective case-control randomized study as with FDAapproved conjugated equine estrogens in combination with synthetic progestins (Lancet 2019, Manson 2019). What might we learn from what we know about the dual actions of progesterone as it relates to bioidentical estrogen and progesterone therapies for menopausal women and their risk for breast cancer? If we let mother nature be our guide, then we should strive to keep estrogen within the physiological ranges seen throughout a full monthly cycle (about 50-150 pg/ml in serum or about 2% of that seen in saliva = 1-3 pg/ml). For at least half of the month serum or capillary blood (Dried Blood Spot-DBS) progesterone should be about 10-30 ng/ml and saliva 200-600 pg/ ml. This results in a progesterone/estradiol ratio of about 100-300, which is consistent with the ratio seen at the peak of the luteal phase and shown to be protective of the breasts exposed to estradiol (Chang 1997). Excessive estradiol or too little progesterone will result eventually in estrogen dominance and symptoms of estrogen excess (e.g. weight gain in the hips and thighs, fibrocystic and painful breasts, mood swings, etc.). Those are warning signs. High levels of 4-catechol estrogens ratchet that up to extreme warning (Cavalieri 1997) as we have found that 4-catechol estrogens are much higher in women harboring breast cancers than healthy women (Miao 2019).

1997, Leonetti 2003) have shown that physiological dosing with topically delivered progesterone raises the progesterone to physiological levels in tissues of the body such as the salivary gland, capillary beds of the fingertips. High dose progesterone (> 50 mg), in an attempt to achieve physiological concentrations in serum never happens regardless of the topical progesterone dose (Du 2014). What may seem paradoxical based on serum levels is that excessive progesterone and too little estrogen will eventually keep ER persistently down-regulated and may precipitate symptoms of estrogen deficiency with weight gain, vasomotor symptoms, excessive sleepiness, etc. Keep in mind that E2 and Pg are produced in a rhythmic pattern each month. Estradiol rises slowly throughout the first half of the cycle and peaks about midway with ovulation. This stimulates growth and proliferation of the uterus and breasts. Progesterone will not work if there is no cellular PR, which requires adequate ER. Excessive Pg down-regulates ER, stopping the cycle. In summary, maintaining estradiol levels in balance with natural progesterone is necessary to achieve optimal clinical benefits of these hormones. It is the opinion of this author that these goals for optimal progesterone therapy as a breast cancer preventive can best be achieved with topical progesterone, and not oral progesterone, or a synthetic progestin. However, clinical studies with topical progesterone are needed to confirm this hypothesis.

Many health care providers believe that topical progesterone is ineffective because it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t raise serum levels. To the contrary, we (Du 2014) and others (Chang

Methylation Status as an Indicator of Cellular Aging By: Michael J. Chapman, ND The following article is not endorsed and/or supported by The American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine. The purposes of this publication do not imply endorsement and/or support of any author, company or theme related to this article.

In the last two decades, there have been a variety of ways that researchers and clinicians try to gain insight into the factors that lead to, or accelerate, the aging process. A few examples include telomere analysis, genotyping, oxidative stress evaluation, or even just a thorough cardiovascular assessment. However, recent advancements in technology have increased our capacity to evaluate cellular methylation status through both genotyping and novel biomarker analysis. The importance of methylation status is not new to the antiaging and functional medicine communities. Proper methylation is crucial in an enormous number of biochemical processes, including creatine production for skeletal muscle contraction, DNA and RNA synthesis, gene regulation (epigenetics), hormone regulation and detoxification, energy production, cell membrane repair, fat metabolism, myelination, and immune function.1-5 Methylation also plays a critical role in vascular endothelial function and maintaining cardiovascular health. While it is certainly clinically useful to have a firm grasp on all the processes in the body that are affected by

methylation perturbation, it is also important to widen the lens so we can put methylation in perspective regarding cellular health overall. Furthermore, evidence has suggested that methylation dysfunction is associated with the aging process overall, including higher incidence of most age-related pathologies.6 But, how is it that methylation status can be referred to as an indication of cellular health?

METHYLATION AND DNA HEALTH It is well-understood that genome instability is one of the most crucial determinants of cellular senescence, and it is also a large risk-factor for tumerogenesis.7 One factor that contributes to genomic instability is alterations in gene expression within the cell, which is also called epigenetic regulation. Epigenetic regulation is accomplished through DNA methylation.8

Methylation Status as an Indicator of Cellular Aging

DNA methylation occurs when methyl groups are attached to specific “non-coding” regions of certain genes. These regions are commonly referred to as CpG islands. Generally speaking, methylation of CpG islands lead a decrease in that particular gene’s expression. The greater number of methyl groups that are attached to these islands, the more gene expression is suppressed. Conversely, removal of these methyl groups increase a gene’s expression.

The relationship between DNA methylation and carcinogenesis is nuanced. For example, hypomethylation of many genes has been implicated in several forms of cancer, whereas other types of cancers have been associated with CpG hypermethylation.9 This does make sense given some genes may code for proteins that are more or less associated with neoplasm (such as the various types of estrogen receptors). Regardless, attempts have been made to interpret specific patterns of DNA methylation to assess cancerrisk as well as predict overall age.6 While DNA assessment for age-associated methylation dysfunction remains relegated to the realm of researchuse-only, there are metabolic markers that have been shown to correlate well with DNA methylation changes.10 Plasma levels of S-adenosylmethionine (SAM), S-adenosylhomocysteine (SAH), and the ratio between the two (SAM/SAH) have been used as biomarkers for cellular methylation status.11-13 To note, the SAM/SAH ratio is resistant to fluctuations owing to multiple backup pathways and feedback mechanisms. It is more likely that SAH variability will lead to alterations in the methylation index.14 This is because methylation reactions become compromised with a decreased SAM:SAH ratio and as SAH levels become elevated.15 Therefore, assessing these novel biomarkers in context of the entire methylation pathway is ideal.

METHYLATION AND OXIDATIVE STRESS Another significant contributor to cellular aging is oxidative stress.16 A host of cellular reactions generate large amounts of reactive oxygen species (ROS) every second. The electron-transport chain, in particular, is a source of a tremendous amount of free radical production, which must be neutralized in order to prevent mitochondrial dysfunction.17 One of the main intracellular antioxidants to combat this insult is glutathione. Oxidative stress has been clinically correlated to innumerable chronic diseases and age-related pathologies.16 Cellular accumulation of ROS causes damage to multiple structures inside the cell, which can culminate in many downstream dysfunctions.16 Common sequelae include protein & lipid damage, altered enzyme activity, and DNA damage. One important mediator of oxidative stress is the enzyme catechol-o-methyltransferase (COMT). The COMT enzyme is responsible for phase 2 detoxification of many intrinsic chemical, such as catecholamines. It accomplishes this by methylating these substrates using SAM as a cofactor. Also, proper COMT activity is crucial for adequate elimination of endogenous estrogens which, at high-levels, could be metabolized into DNA adducts (capable of DNA damage).18 Another way that methylation impacts oxidative stress is through its influence on glutathione production. As mentioned, glutathione is one of the body’s most potent antioxidants. Glutathione is produced in a step-wise fashion from homocysteine (a methylation byproduct and independent cardiovascular risk marker) through a process call transsulfuration. The the first step in transsulfuration is accomplished by the enzyme cystathionine beta-synthase (CBS). To note, CBS activity is dependent on adequate availability of the main methyl donor, SAM.19 Ultimately, when SAM is low, glutathione production will be slowed down. Therefore, poor methylation status can indirectly lead to lower glutathione levels which makes the cell more susceptible to oxidative damage.

Methylation Status as an Indicator of Cellular Aging

METHYLATION AND CELLULAR ENERGY Within each cell, there is a vast and dynamic interplay between many biochemical pathways to ensure cellular energy demands are met. Methylation imbalances can influence the ebb and flow of products used by the mitochondria. For example, SAM availability increases the transsulfuration pathway (discussed above). Interestingly, the transsulfuration pathway also contributes to the production of pyruvate used in cellular ATP synthesis. Therefore, adequate SAM can influence pyruvate production for cellular energy metabolism. Another important methylation product is creatine. Creatine is as crucial energy source for muscle contraction. Creatine production in the body is accomplished by subsequent methylation reactions using SAM as a

cofactor. Therefore, an inadequate supply of SAM may impair the systemâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to adequate generate creatine for optimal muscle contraction which could potentially manifest as muscle weakness.

SUMMARY The previous examples discussed just a few (among many) ways that the methylation cycle relates to optimal cellular health. The methylation cycle assists in maintaining DNA integrity and appropriate expression, mitigating oxidative stress, and cellular energy production. Given this insight, we can make the case that adequate methylation is a hallmark for optimal cellular aging. Therefore, it is critical to consider when addressing all age-related pathologies, as well as the symptoms that accompany the aging process as a whole.

The Endocannabinoid System and Palmitoylethanolamide (PEA)

By: Elnaz Karimian Azari, PhD The following article is not endorsed and/or supported by The American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine. The purposes of this publication do not imply endorsement and/or support of any author, company or theme related to this article.

The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is an important physiological system that regulates and balances a wide range of physiological functions in the body.1 Research on ECS has led to the identification of not only endocannabinoids such as anandamide (AEA) and 2-arachidonoylglycerol (2-AG), but also endocannabinoidlike lipid mediators such as palmitoylethanolamide (PEA). These endocannabinoid-like compounds often share the same metabolic pathways of the endocannabinoids but lack binding affinity for the classical cannabinoid receptor type 1 and type 2 (CB1 and CB2), as do endocannabinoids.2 PEA can naturally occur in lipid extracts of foods such as egg yolk, peanut oil or soybean lecithin.3 Endogenously, PEA is biosynthesized from the saturated fatty acid palmitic acid in various cell types, such as immune cells, neurons and microglias. These cells are relevant to chronic pain and inflammation signaling.2 PEA can be detected in various tissues and body fluids.2 When facing external stressors such as tissue damage and inflammation, endogenous levels of PEA change in order to maintain cellular homeostasis.4

MECHANISMS OF ACTION OF PEA PEA is produced ‘on demand’ from membrane phospholipids and exerts its pharmacological effects via multiple mechanisms: Preclinical studies have demonstrated the effect of PEA on antinociceptive activities and inhibition of peripheral inflammation as well as neuroprotective actions.5-7 The anti-inflammatory effects of PEA were first identified by modulation of mast cell activation and degranulation.8,9 Later, the direct receptor activation, including the nuclear receptor peroxisome proliferator activated receptor-α (PPAR-α) and G-protein coupled receptor 55 (GPCR55) was identified. The binding of PEA to selective receptors present on the surface of neurons and immune cells activates signaling pathways leading to inhibition of expression of proinflammatory genes and pain related signaling, both in central and peripheral nervous system.10 In addition, PEA supports the ECS via the entourage effect: PEA increases levels of AEA via inhibiting the expression of fatty acid amide hydrolase (FAAH),

the enzyme responsible for the breakdown of AEA, thereby indirectly activating classical cannabinoid receptors and increasing AEA actions.9 PEA enhances 2-AG- and AEA-induced activation and desensitization of the transient receptor potential vanilloid receptor type 1 (TRPV1) channels, thus potentiating TRPV-1-mediated anti-inflammatory or analgesic actions.11 PEA indirectly increases CB2 receptors expression or activates TRPV1 channel via PPAR-α.2 Accumulating data indicate that PEA’s therapeutic actions are mediated by synergistic interactions among these mechanisms. For example, in a mouse model Subject Condition (sample size) Chronic sciatic pain (n=636)13 Fibromyalgia (n=407)14

Fibromyalgia (n=35)15

Primer on Geranylgeraniol By: Amy Berger, MS, CNS The following article is not endorsed and/or supported by The American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine. The purposes of this publication do not imply endorsement and/or support of any author, company or theme related to this article.

Geranylgeraniol (GG) is a compound synthesized endogenously in the human body via the mevalonate pathway—the same biochemical pathway by which cholesterol, heme A, dolichol and ubiquinone (CoQ10) are synthesized. As such, it plays a critical role in tissue systems and metabolic processes throughout the body, including healthy mitochondrial function and the generation of ATP. GG occurs naturally in various foods (e.g., flax, sunflower and olive oils, select medicinal herbs), but the majority is synthesized endogenously. GG is an essential building block for production of CoQ10, conversion of vitamin K1 to K2, and for protein synthesis and post-translational modification. Synthesis of GG declines naturally during aging and is inhibited by use of certain pharmaceutical drugs, namely, statins and bisphosphonates. A reduced supply of this crucial and versatile compound may contribute to some of the physical decline and increased risk for cardiometabolic disease seen during aging.

EFFECT OF COMMONLY PRESCRIBED DRUGS ON SYNTHESIS OF GG AND DOWNSTREAM PRODUCTS: STATINS & BISPHOSPHONATES 48

Statin drugs exert their effects early in the mevalonate pathway (via inhibition of the enzyme HMG-CoA reductase), far upstream of where GG and its byproducts are produced. Synthesis of all compounds produced after this step may be reduced, which likely contributes to the noted neuromyotoxicity and mitochondrial toxicity of statins.1,2 Decreased synthesis of CoQ10 may result in depressed cellular energy generation via impaired mitochondrial respiration, with cascading effects on numerous tissue systems. A consequence of reduced GG synthesis due to statin use may include decreased endogenous vitamin K2 production, which may play a role in vascular calcification and, paradoxically, atherosclerosis.3 The exact mechanisms behind the myopathy and myotoxicity some statin users experience are not known for certain but it’s possible they result from inadequate synthesis of GG and, as a result, an inadequate pool of CoQ10. Researchers note evidence points to GG “as the principal target of statin-dependent myotoxicity,”4 and statin-induced muscle damage “is the result of a geranylgeranylation defect”5—potentially due to an inadequate supply of GG. Beyond statins’ effect on CoQ10, their role in decreased heme A

synthesis may further contribute to compromised mitochondrial function.6 Heme A is an essential component of complex IV of the electron transport chain (cytochrome C oxidase), one of the major regulatory sites for oxidative phosphorylation and mitochondrial respiration. Deficiency of cytochrome C oxidase increases mitochondrial apoptosis in response to oxidative stress. Bisphosphonate drugs are another category of pharmaceuticals that interfere with endogenous synthesis of GG. Nitrogen-containing bisphosphonates (NBPs) also exert their effects via the mevalonate pathway, but the enzyme target of these drugs is farnesyl pyrophosphate synthase (FPPS) rather than HMG-CoA reductase so the mechanism is different from that of statins. FPPS is involved in the steps immediately preceding GG synthesis. A noted adverse effect of NBP use is osteonecrosis of the jaw (ONJ). Effective treatments for this are lacking, and GG has been identified as a potential preventive and therapeutic agent.7 Most of the research in this area to date has been done in rodents and cell cultures but results are promising, as discussed in the next section. Inhibition of enzymes in the mevalonate pathway may reduce conversion of vitamin K1 to the K2 form, the latter being instrumental in bone mineralization.8 Vitamin K2-dependent enzymes play essential roles in calcium trafficking and a deficit of enzyme activity may contribute to reduced bone mineralization with concurrent vascular and soft tissue calcification—a phenomenon called the “calcium paradox.”9,10 Vitamin K2 appears to promote the transition of osteoblasts to osteocytes and may also limit the synthesis of osteoclasts11—precisely something that would be desirable in treating osteoporosis. Vitamin K1 accounts for over 90% of dietary vitamin K but K2 (found in aged cheese, animal fats and proteins, and fermented vegetables12,13), makes up over 90% of tissue vitamin K stores. K2 is derived from K1 via enzymatic processes that require protein modification through geranyl pyrophosphate and farnesyl pyrophosphate, the latter being the enzyme inhibited by NBPs.14 This likely explains the reduced K2 synthesis seen with NBPs and also with statins.3

POTENTIAL THERAPEUTIC ROLE FOR GG Animal models and cell studies show that, when given in combination with statins, GG increases mitochondrial

respiration and restores ubiquinone synthesis without negatively impacting statins’ cholesterol-lowering effects. Administration of GG to statin-treated human neurons decreased expression of inflammatory markers and reduced mitochondrial damage, facilitating maintenance of proper mitochondrial structure and function.15 In human monocytes and liver cells, GG reversed mevastatin-induced reductions in ubiquinone synthesis and mitochondrial electron transport that typically lead to cell death, also without impeding the drug’s cholesterol-lowering property.16 Notably, addition of GG was more effective than addition of exogenous CoQ10 itself for attenuating these adverse effects, leading researchers to state that compared to ubiquinone, “Geranylgeraniol may be a more useful and practical means of limiting the toxicities of statins, without reducing their efficacy as cholesterol lowering agents.”16 Regarding a potential role for GG in mitigating the adverse effects of NBPs, GG was shown to reverse the effects of these drugs on reduced angiogenesis,7 which has been hypothesized as one of several mechanisms contributing to ONJ.17 GG has also been shown to reverse the negative effects of NBPs in human fibroblasts, osteogenic cells and HUVEC cells.18 Endothelial progenitor cells (EPC) cotreated with NBPs and GG showed significantly increased cell viability, migration ability and increased EPC colony density (decreased apoptosis) compared to non-GG-treated controls, effectively reversing the negative effects of NBPs. Similar results have been demonstrated for GG reversing the negative effects of NBP on human alveolar osteoblasts, periodontal ligament fibroblasts and oral keratinocytes.19-21

STEROID HORMONE SYNTHESIS GG may have a role in supporting steroid hormone synthesis. This process naturally declines during aging and may also be reduced as a side effect of statin drug use. By inhibiting cholesterol synthesis, statins may impair production of steroid hormones made from cholesterol, such as progesterone and testosterone. A systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials on the effect of statins on testosterone in men and women found that statins do have a mild testosterone-lowering effect, but the clinical significance of this may differ among individual patients.22 The average reduction was low but individual patients may experience larger decreases, potentially resulting in reduced libido,23 erectile dysfunction (ED)24 and other complications, particularly in older men and those

with existing cardiovascular risk factors.25 Overall, however, research in this area is mixed, with at least one retrospective cohort analysis finding no significant association between statin use and increased risk for male sexual dysfunction.26-28 Supplementing with GG as raw material or cofactor for hormone synthesis has potential to ameliorate the negative effects of statins on testosterone levels. GG has been shown to increase production of both testosterone and progesterone in murine Leydig tumor cells.29 Rats supplemented with vitamin K2 MK-4 (the synthesis of which requires GG) showed increased plasma and testicular levels of testosterone. MK-4 may be involved in testosterone synthesis in the testes, leading researchers to speculate that supplementation may positively impact the natural decline in this hormone during aging.30,31 Vitamin K1 was not shown to have this effect, suggesting that K2—specifically, MK-4—is needed for this process.

BLOOD SUGAR REGULATION AND METABOLIC HEALTH Decreased synthesis of GG and other compounds produced via the mevalonate pathway may contribute to the increased risk for new-onset type 2 diabetes noted among statin users.32-34 The US FDA acknowledges the potential for increased blood sugar and HbA1c among those who take statins,35 a phenomenon that may result in part from decreased insulin secretion.36 A possible contributing mechanism is statins’ inhibition of protein prenylation, a protein modification step required for glucose-stimulated release of insulin from pancreatic beta cells.37-39 Researchers have noted that this may be due to statins reducing synthesis of metabolites in the mevalonate pathway, which would include GG.33,40 For individuals who require the cholesterol-lowering effect of statins, providing exogenous GG may help mitigate this risk while still favorably affecting blood lipids. It was shown in human monocytes in vitro that

50

GG exerts its beneficial effects without interfering with the cholesterol-lowering properties of statins,16 and researchers have written that GG “may be a potential drug for the prevention or treatment of statin-induced diabetes without interfering with the beneficial plasma cholesterol-lowering effects of statin.”41 Beyond the potential for GG to mitigate the effects of statins on blood glucose, GG may also aid in blood sugar regulation by inducing PPARγ expression and enhancing the biological effects of PPARγ agonist medications, such as the thiazolidinediones (TZDs) used to treat type 2 diabetes.41 This was shown in mouse adipocytes and human hepatocytes.42

PAIN REDUCTION Pain relief is another area where GG is promising as a therapeutic agent. Brazilian folk medicine has traditionally employed seeds from the plant Pterodon pubescens Benth (also called sucupira branca) for their medicinal properties. Modern laboratory assays have determined this plant to be a source of GG, and these extracts have been shown to be anti-inflammatory, analgesic, musclerelaxing, anti-rheumatic and hypoglycemic.43-45 Rodent models employing oral administration of GG show that the analgesic effects can take place as quickly as within minutes (for immediate pain relief and reduction of pain from skin burn, heat burn and gastritis). Anti-nociceptive effects for edema and pressure pain took hours, and pain reduction for rheumatoid arthritis was observed within 2 weeks.45-47 Geranylgeraniol is critical for supporting cardiometabolic health and graceful aging. Future human research may elucidate additional clinical applications for this compound and expand its potential therapeutic roles.

Aging and the Gut Microbiome By: Kasey Hutchinson, RDN The following article is not endorsed and/or supported by The American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine. The purposes of this publication do not imply endorsement and/or support of any author, company or theme related to this article.

As humans, we come from different backgrounds, have different physical features, and follow many different career paths, but one thing that connects us all is the process of aging. Aging goes beyond the physical signs, like graying hair and wrinkled skin, and affects mental acuity, physical vigor, disease susceptibility, and energy levels. Since antiquity, humans have searched for the magical elixir that will prevent the natural decline of youth. However, it appears that the secret to anti-aging starts within. New research shows that gut health is a key determinant of longevity.

THE IMPORTANCE OF GUT HEALTH The intestines are much more than a site of digestion and absorption of food. They are also home to trillions of microorganisms, known as the gut microbiome, which has coevolved with the human body over the past 500 million years. In this symbiotic relationship, the human host provides food and a place to stay, while the microbes produce hormones, neurotransmitters, anti-inflammatory molecules, digestive enzymes, and more (1). This recently-defined ecosystem is vital to building a strong immune system, cultivating mental health, and keeping inflammation at

56

bay. Interestingly, the composition of gut microbes changes as we age, and this affects numerous mechanisms associated with advanced age.

GUT MICROBE COMPOSITION CHANGES WITH AGE As infants, the human gut is first colonized by the motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vaginal microbiome, breast milk, and the environment. Thus, the infant microbiome is typically dominated by the genus Bifidobacterium and Lactobacillus as well as members of the Enterobacteriaceae family (2). These bacteria assist with the biological needs of this age, such as lactose digestion and immune system development. During adolescence and adulthood, the microbial diversity increases significantly, marked by a bloom of Bacillus, Faecalibacterium, Clostridium, and many more (3). However, in the GI tract of elderly individuals, there is a substantial decrease in overall diversity and abundance of gut bacteria. Adults over the age of 70 show an increase in disease-promoting species, such as C. perfringens and C. difficile, while Lactobacilli and Bifidobacteria colonies plummet (4). Converse to this general trend, researchers have discovered that in areas of

Aging and the Gut Microbiome

the world where people frequently live to be more than 100 years old, i.e. centenarian populations, there is actually a spike in microbial diversity associated with old age. A recent study from the journal Current Biology examined the microbial composition among 24 elderly people aged 104-109. Results indicated that these super-centenarians had increased abundance of Akkermansia, Bifidobacterium, and Christensenellaceae, a much different profile than frail elderly individuals (5). This has led to strong speculations that gut microbes may be the key to extreme longevity and a closer look into individual functions of bacterial strains offers further evidence for this claim.

THE VARIOUS ROLES OF BENEFICIAL BACTERIA Each strain of gut bacteria appears to have specific functions in the body, with some of them overlapping tasks providing an important redundancy. For example, Christensenellaceae is part of the microbial signature of extremely longevous people and is also associated with lean body mass and reduced risk of chronic disease (6). Interestingly, the abundance of Christensenellaceae bacteria appears to be influenced by host genetics, suggesting that longevity also contains a heritable component that influences gut microbial populations. Bifidobacteria ferment dietary fiber and produce powerful fermentation by-products known as shortchain fatty acids (SCFA) (7). These molecules perform various functions in the body such free-radical scavenging and other anti-inflammatory tasks, the development and maintenance of the immune system, and more. In fact, a recent study reported that SCFAs assist the hormone signaling involved in bone density, suggesting that these strains can ameliorate factors of osteoporosis. Furthermore, Bifidobacteria protect against DNA damage and oxidative stress while aiding in the detoxification of carcinogens (8). Faecalibacterium prausnitzii and Akkermansia muciniphila help prevent the invasion of pathogens and harmful molecules involved with the onset of disease, also known as leaky gut syndrome (9). A. muciniphila also regulates various aspects of metabolism and fights gut inflammation. In fact, A. muciniphila is touted by researchers as an effective anti-aging microbe because it is so beneficial at reversing the agerelated decline in the gut mucosa (10). The combined

effects of these beneficial microbes can increase lifespan and quality of life in aging populations.

GUT BARRIER FUNCTION AND AGING he gut barrier is a single layer of epithelial tissue covered with a viscous mucosal layer that separates the intestinal contents from the rest of the body (1). This area allows nutrients to enter the body but protects against the invasion of pathogenic bacteria and deleterious chemical compounds. Overuse of broad-spectrum antibiotics, hyper-sanitized environments, poor diets, and stress can damage this layer, leaving holes in this shield. Lipopolysaccharide (LPS) is one of the most prevalent and damaging molecules that can leak through a weakened gut barrier. LPS is a component of bacterial cell membranes and is normally benign if it remains within the gut, where it is eventually excreted in the feces (10). However, if it enters circulation, an inflammatory cascade can lead to fibrosis and cell death anywhere in the body. This is one of the underlying factors involved in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, diabetes, prematurely aging skin, chronic pain, and mental decline (1). Research continues to highlight the harmful effects of inflammation on the progression of aging. In fact, a new word has even been developed to describe this relationship: inflammaging. According to a recent report, “inflammaging refers to the chronic, low-grade inflammation that characterizes aging.” This process can involve nearly every organ of the body, including the microbiome, and is characterized by an imbalance of inflammatory actions (11). Mechanisms behind inflammaging include increased intestinal permeability, gut dysbiosis, oxidative stress caused by dysfunctional mitochondria, and immune dysregulation (12). Numerous studies report the association between gut microbiome alterations and increased frailty in the elderly (13,14). However, it seems to be a question of the chicken versus the egg as to which event takes place first. Scientists are currently diving into research to find the answer. In a recent study published in Frontiers in Microbiology researchers took fecal matter from old mice (experiencing inflammaging) and young mice and transferred it to the GI tract of germ-free mice (15). Within 4 weeks of this transfer, the GF mice receiving fecal transfer from older mice had an upsurge of TNF-a production, TLR-4 activation,

increased gut permeability, increased abundance of Proteobacteria, and reduced abundance of Akkermansia muciniphila. The authors of this study suggest that gut microbiota composition in aged individuals contributes to the inflammaging process. Furthermore, they recommend that health care professionals â&#x20AC;&#x153;consider ways to modify gut microbiota composition of the elderly,â&#x20AC;? perhaps using probiotics or prebiotics. While it is designed to protect the body from infection and disease, inflammation can turn into a chronic condition that creates oxidative damage, especially when LPS is present. This is the underlying source of wrinkles, vision loss, cancer, and several other diseases plaguing this nation. In fact, LPS-induced low-grade inflammation, also known as metabolic endotoxemia, has recently been found to alter telomere length, which could shorten lifespan.

TELOMERES AND INFLAMMATION Telomeres act as a molecular clock of the cells. Near the terminal end of chromosomes exists complex heterochromatin structures that protect the chromosome and preserve the genome (16). Through the process of cellular division, parts of this structure are lost, and eventually the telomere reaches critical length, initiating apoptosis or replicative senescence. Replicative senescence can be thought of as the permanent inhibition of cellular growth and division and is observed in many cells throughout the body (17). Senescent cells have shortened telomeres, yet are impervious to apoptosis and have no telomerase activity. In immature cells, lymphocytes, and other cells during gestation, telomeres are elongated by an enzyme known as telomerase. This fascinating enzyme is not present in most mature cells, which is why many of them eventually die. Thus, telomerase and telomere length have become hot topics regarding anti-aging. A recent murine study published in the journal Nature Communications found that chronic low-grade inflammation induces reactive oxygen species, leading to the activation of NF-kB pathways in mice (18). This process prompted telomere dysfunction and premature aging in the mice. LPS attaches to pattern recognition receptors, such as toll-like receptor-4, initiating a cascade of inflammatory responses. This leads to an influx of

58

inflammatory cytokines which disrupt telomerase activity and may progress to cellular senescence (19). According to the most current scientific reports, it is imperative to follow a healthy lifestyle including the avoidance of smoking, consuming a healthy, balanced diet, managing stress, and maintaining a healthy gut microbiome. Healing the intestinal mucosal layer and promoting the growth of beneficial gut bacteria have a massive and positive influence on reducing metabolic endotoxemia and systemic inflammation. A recent study published in the World Journal of Gastrointestinal Pathophysiology found that a novel probiotic supplement, containing 5 strains of Bacillus spores, significantly improves symptoms of metabolic endotoxemia (20). Researchers recruited 26 healthy men and women and randomly divided them into 2 groups. The control group received a placebo pill containing rice flour, while the experiment group received a commercial spore-based probiotic supplement containing Bacillus indicus (HU36), Bacillus subtilis (HU58), Bacillus coagulans, Bacillus licheniformis, and Bacillus clausii. Researchers stimulated LPS-induced metabolic endotoxemia in participants using a high-fat, heavily processed meal both at the beginning and end of the 30-day trial. Circulating LPS and inflammatory cytokine levels were measured. At the end of the experiment, the experiment group had a 42% reduction in circulating LPS levels as well as reduced inflammatory cytokine production following the high fat meal. Conversely, the control group experienced a 35% increase in LPS levels. This study underscores the potential of probiotic therapy to reduce total body inflammation, which could have massive and positive impacts on preserving telomere length and reducing incidence of age-related disease. Aging is a natural and inevitable process that happens to everyone, regardless of status, income, or geographic location, but gut health seems to determine the impact and severity of the aging process. Certain gut microbes appear to play a central role in reducing inflammaging and enhancing longevity. Furthermore, a robust gut mucosa can prevent harmful molecules from entering the body and causing inflammation and damage to telomeres. Thus, maintaining a healthy and diverse gut microbiome has the potential to promote a smooth aging process. Health professionals are encouraged to use probiotics, prebiotics, and other lifestyle and diet techniques to best modulate the gut microbiome.

Coenzyme Q10 and Aging By: Kai Man Yuen, MSc Bio: Kai Man Yuen achieved his MSc from the University of Auckland, researching the feasibility of a vaccine using Staphylococcal enterotoxin-like toxin X (SElX) to fight Staphylococcus aureus infection. The following article is not endorsed and/or supported by The American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine. The purposes of this publication do not imply endorsement and/or support of any author, company or theme related to this article.

INTRODUCTION Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a small lipophilic structure composed of a benzoquinone ring and an isoprenoid side-chain1,2. First described in 1955, named ubiquitous quinone, CoQ10 is located ubiquitously in cell membranes1,2. It was not until 1957 where its function as an electron carrier in the mitochondrial electron transport chain was reported in bovine heart mitochondria1,2. Synthesis of CoQ10 in humans occurs in the membrane of the mitochondrial matrix via a collection of enzymes (complex Q)1,2. The benzoquinone ring is derived from 4-hydrobenzoic acid, while the ten isoprenes are derived from mevalonic acid from the cholesterol synthesis pathway1,2. It is the quinone ring that is responsible for carrying electrons to Complex III1,2. CoQ10 is distributed in all membranes of cells and forms a crucial component of the electron transport chain (ETC) transporting electrons between Complex I/II and III1,2. CoQ10 accepts electrons from the different donors (e.g. Complex I, Complex II)1,2. Through accepting electrons, CoQ10 cycles between

72

three chemical forms: completely oxidised (ubiquinone), semioxidised intermediate free radical (semiquinone) and a completely reduced form (ubiquinol)(Figure 1)1–3. It is with the movement within the mitochondrial membrane that allows the pumping of protons at Complex III. This helps generate adenosine triphosphate (ATP)1,2. Because of this function, tissues with higher mitochondrial content and therefore metabolic rate (for example heart, kidney, liver and muscle), have high levels of CoQ101,2. In addition to its main function in the ETC, CoQ10 has a critical antioxidant role1,2. This helps stabilize the plasma membrane and protect membrane phospholipids from peroxidation1,2. Because of this, diminished levels in aging likely contribute to membrane peroxidation injury1,2. Ubiquinone and semiquinone are also involved in reducing α-tocopherol and ascorbate helping with redox balance in the cell1,2. Recent publications have also shown that CoQ10 can play a role in apoptosis and have antiatherogenic effects as well1,2,4.

COQ10 & AGING Aging is a part of life. It is a multifactorial process that involves numerous environmental and genetic factors5. A common theory that explains the association between age and degenerative disease is oxidative imbalance1,2,5. This is where the production of antioxidants such as superoxide dismutase, catalase, glutathione peroxidase and CoQ10 are not able to contain the production of reactive oxygen species (ROS)1,2,5. This leads to oxidative stress. In many diseases and disorders, this increase of ROS decreases CoQ10 levels in the human body1,2,5. This deficiency leads to mitochondrial dysfunction decreasing the efficiency of cells1,2,5. Therefore, CoQ10 is essential for the health of many human tissues and CoQ10 supplementation has been proposed to help alleviate the effects of aging1,2,5. The majority of CoQ10 comes from internal synthesis but is widely found in many animal protein sources, vegetables, fruits and cereals1,2,5,6. While consuming CoQ10 externally increases plasma levels, supplementation may not increase tissue levels of CoQ10 in normal tissues which is not ideal1,2,5. Although certain studies have shown that tissue uptake does occur in a variety of human diseases.

COQ10 SUPPLEMENTATION IN THE TREATMENT OF HUMAN DISEASES CoQ10 has been used in numerous studies looking at human pathologies and disorders. Many studies have tested the safety and efficacy of CoQ10. There have been reports that 1200mg daily dose of CoQ10 supplementation was safe in a randomized controlled human trial2. However, Hathcock and Shao demonstrated that doses as high as 3000mg

per day in shorter clinical trials was safe too7. Even though studies have their own limitations, CoQ10 can be considered an important part in the treatment of a range of chronic diseases that primarily affect the aged, some of which will be discussed below. Heart failure and increased ROS have a well-documented association1,2,5. The increase in ROS can be due to decreased levels of endogenous antioxidants1,2,5. Flowers et al. performed a systematic review on the efficacy of CoQ10 supplementation in the prevention of cardiovascular disease (CVD) without any changes to lifestyle8. The results indicated a significant reduction in systolic blood pressure but none of the other CVD risk factors such as total cholesterol, or diastolic blood pressure were affected8. A second meta-analysis investigated the impact of CoQ10 in reducing complications in cardiac surgery patients9. Results showed that CoQ10 therapy decreased the need of inotropic drugs and reduced the appearance of ventricular arrhythmias after surgery9. Due to its antioxidant properties, CoQ10 supplementation has been proposed for the treatment of metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes2. However, results have been mixed. Moradi et al. showed that CoQ10 therapy had mild effects in type 2 diabetic patients10. CoQ10 was seen to reduce fasting glucose levels in the plasma without making changes in fasting insulin and glycated haemoglobin10. Despite that, numerous other trials have shown no significant effects on blood sugar control, lipid profile or blood pressure in diabetic patients. However, a reduction in triglycerides in serum was noted2. While this research does show some promise, more research needs to be done to see if CoQ10 can indeed help to treat metabolic diseases. As with cardiometabolic disease, there is a wellestablished correlation between mitochondrial dysfunction and neurodegenerative diseases. Studies

show that CoQ10 can preserve mitochondrial function and help reduce dopaminergic neuron loss in Parkinsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disease2. A recent systematic review was conducted to evaluate the impact of CoQ10 supplementation on the frequency, severity and duration of the migraine attacks11. Four randomized clinical trials with 221 participants were included11. The review suggested that CoQ10 may reduce the frequency of migraine attacks per month but does not affect the severity or duration of the attacks11. A trial has also been registered with the Australia and New Zealand Clinical Trials Registry (ANZCTRN12618001841268) to investigate the efficacy of Ubiquinol as a treatment for age-related cognitive decline that could impact productivity and quality of life within healthy, elderly patients12. This study would be valuable for health care practitioners and the general community and whether the advantages of CoQ10 treatment outweighs the disadvantages.

MITOCHONDRIAL - TARGETED COQ10 It is very important to keep our antioxidants levels at a high level especially with CoQ1013,14. Due to its low oral bioavailability and the lack of ability to get into the mitochondria, various structural modifications have been made to supplemental CoQ10 to improve distribution of this antioxidant to the mitochondria. One of which is mitoquinol15. Mitoquinol contains a triphenylphosphonium ion fused to a ubiquinone group (the active antioxidant component of CoQ10) through a lipophilic hydrocarbon chain15. It was found that a 10-atom carbon chain enabled optimal absorption and interaction with the inner membrane of the mitochondria. Additional research suggests mitoquinol may have beneficial effects on many of the regulatory processes that mitochondria influence15. According to a 2016 report by the World Health Organization (WHO), cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) represent the top 2 leading causes of global death16. Age-related changes in vasculature caused by oxidative stress were postulated to be the main factors for the development of CVD17. A previous report had demonstrated that oral supplementation of mitoquinol restored endothelium-dependent dilation in murine models. In 2018, Rossman et al.

74

conducted the first randomized, double-blind, placebocontrolled clinical trial using mitoquinol in healthy middle-aged and older adults to identify its effects on the vasculature17. Mitoquinol was deemed safe and well-tolerated17. Brachial artery flow mediated dilation (a method to analyse endothelial function) was 42% higher in patients who were administered mitoquinol due to the inhibition of mitochondrial ROS17. In addition, oxidized LDL (a circulating biomarker for oxidative stress) and aortic stiffness were both lowered 6 weeks post-administration17. Separately, Johnson and Grant performed two blinded, placebo-controlled studies to investigate how mitoquinol can affect symptoms seen in fibromyalgia, myalgic encephalomyelitis and chronic fatigue18. After treatment with mitoquinol, the parallel analysis group of fibromyalgia patients had a significant decrease in pain and increased working memory, while sleep quality was increased in both18. When analysing the fibromyalgia crossover (all the data was collected and replaces missing values with estimates derived from multiple imputation), values were very consistent18. Pain and working memory improvements were statistically significant18. Both groups showed modest increases in energy and activity. Verbal reasoning also increased in both groups18. Recently a paper published in 2019 reported that mitoquinol could has a protective effect on cigarette smoke exposure on human umbilical vein endothelial cells19. Chen et al. demonstrated that mitoquinol had the ability to restore endothelial barrier integrity as well as decreased inflammation19. By reducing the production of ROS and overactivity of autophagy, mitoquinol also maintained mitochondrial function and protected against the cytotoxicity of cigarette smoke exposure19. Through this study, it was demonstrated that damage to mitochondria is a key driver in the dysfunction of the endothelial barrier, and of inflammation caused by exposure to cigarette smoke19. Taken together, findings suggest mitochondrial-targeted antioxidants such as mitoquinol could be a promising treatment for CVDs, and other age-related diseases and disorders. Additional research is needed to address knowledge gaps and to determine the translatability of animal models for clinical development.

Coenzyme Q10 and Aging

CONCLUSIONS As our knowledge of mitochondria expand, important components inside these organelles have also been identified. One of which is the co-enzyme, CoQ10. CoQ10 was once thought of as a dual functioning coenzyme, helping transport electrons into the electron transport chain and as an antioxidant to maintain redox balance. Much like the mitochondria, CoQ10 has been since been identified as a factor in many other processes in the body. Therefore, a decrease in CoQ10 levels

with age is potentially a significant contributor to the population health burden. While CoQ10 supplements are a great idea in theory, due to their low bioavailability, mitochondrial-targeted antioxidants are a significant advancement in this field. With more and more interest in CoQ10 supplementation, research will follow with the hopes of investigating whether it can be used to treat multiple systems in the body at once, or if it better suited to systems that contain a high density of mitochondria.

The Science Behind NMN

A Stable, Reliable NAD+ Activator and Anti-Aging Molecule By: Christopher Shade, PhD The following article is not endorsed and/or supported by The American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine. The purposes of this publication do not imply endorsement and/or support of any author, company or theme related to this article.

In June of 2018, the World Health Organization (WHO) released the 11th edition of its International Classification of Diseases, and for the first time added aging. The classification of aging as a disease paves the way for new research into novel therapeutics to delay or reverse age-related illnesses such as cancer, cardiovascular and metabolic disease, and neurodegeneration., Nutrient sensing systems have been an intense focus of investigation, including mTOR (the mammalian target of rapamycin) for regulating protein synthesis and cell growth; AMPK (activated protein kinase) for sensing low energy states; and sirtuins, a family of seven proteins critical to DNA expression and aging, which can only function in conjunction with NAD+ (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide), a coenzyme present in all living cells. Across the kingdom of life, an increase in intracellular levels of NAD+ triggers shifts that enhance survival, including boosting energy production and upregulating cellular repair. In fact, the slow, ineluctable process of aging has been described as a “cascade of robustness breakdown triggered by a decrease in systemic NAD+ biosynthesis and the resultant functional defects

102

in susceptible organs and tissues.” Aging is marked by epigenetic shifts, genomic instability, altered nutrient sensing ability, telomere attrition, mitochondrial dysfunction, cellular senescence, stem cell exhaustion, and dysregulated intercellular communication., By middle age, our NAD+ levels have plummeted to half that of our youth. Numerous studies have demonstrated that boosting NAD+ levels increases insulin sensitivity, reverses mitochondrial dysfunction, and extends lifespan., NAD+ levels can be increased by activating enzymes that stimulate synthesis of NAD+, by inhibiting an enzyme (CD38) that degrades NAD+, and by supplementing with NAD precursors, including nicotinamide riboside( NR) and nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN)., A conceptual framework called NAD World, formulated over the last decade by developmental biologist Shin-ichiro Imai, MD, PhD, of Washington University School of Medicine, posits NMN as a critical, systemic signaling molecule that maintains biological robustness of the communication network supporting NAD+.6 Taken orally, NMN is rapidly absorbed and converted to NAD+.

The Science Behind NMN - A Stable, Reliable NAD+ Activator and Anti-Aging Molecule

In numerous studies, supplementation with NMN has increased NAD+ biosynthesis, suppressed agerelated adipose tissue inflammation, enhanced insulin secretion and insulin action, improved mitochondrial function, improved neuronal function in the brain, and more. Here, we look at the science behind NMN, its stability, possible pharmacokinetics, transport, function, and ability to induce biosynthesis of NAD+. Supplementing NMN may be an effective nutraceutical anti-aging intervention, with beneficial effects on a wide array of physiological functions.

PATHWAYS TO NMN IN THE HUMAN BODY A veritable symphony of interlocking transformations allows NAD+ to be both synthesized and regulated in the body. It is well known that vitamin B3 is a building block for Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+). It is also widely recognized that NMN is a potent precursor for NAD+. Though NMN is naturally found in small amounts in fruits and vegetables such as avocados, broccoli, cabbage, edamame, and cucumbers, in mammals most NMN is synthesized from vitamin B3 in the form of nicotinamide. At the center is nicotinamide phosphoribosyltransferase (NAMPT), an essential rate-limiting enzyme that catalyzes the conversion from nicotinamide to NMN, which exists in both an intracellular (iNAMPT) and extracellular form (eNAMPT). The extracellular form has higher enzymatic activity than the intracellular form and has been found in blood plasma, seminal plasma and cerebrospinal fluid in humans., In addition, eNAMPT appears to be produced by a wide array of cell types— including fat (adipocytes), liver (hepatocytes), white blood cells (leukocytes and monocytes), and heart and brain cells (cardiomyocytes and glia cells). Like NAD+ and NMN, eNAMPT declines with age. Both white and brown adipocytes actively secrete eNAMPT, suggesting that fatty tissue may be a modulator of NAD+ biosynthesis.6 Adipose tissue actively secretes extracellular vesicles (EVs) that are enriched with NMN, and can circulate through the plasma. EVs are membrane-derived particles surrounded by a phospholipid bilayer that are released by cells in the human body. These EVs not only protect their cargo, they can deposit their payload where needed.

NMN and NR dance together. NMN can be converted by the body to NR, which then enters cells, and is converted back to NMN by an enzyme called nicotinamide riboside kinase (NRK). More recently, an “elusive’ transporter was discovered, which can transport NMN directly into cells. NMN is transported across cell membranes directly into the cytoplasm of the cell, by an enzyme called Slc12a8. Uptake pathways of NMN vary with tissue types, and interestingly, Slc12a8 expression is about 100-fold times higher in the small intestine of mice than the brain or adipose tissue. Researchers speculate that the gut microbiome, and certain resident bacteria within it, may produce NMN. NMN levels fall with age, and aging itself has also been shown to significantly compromise the body’s conversion of NMN to NAD+.

ABUNDANT EVIDENCE FOR ANTI - AGING AND HEALTH ENHANCING EFFECTS OF NMN In numerous mouse models of disease and aging, NMN has demonstrated a wide array of remarkable effects, benefitting conditions ranging from diabetes to Alzheimer’s disease to ischemia. Orally administered NMN is quickly synthesized into NAD+ in tissues in mice. NMN has been able to suppress ageassociated weight gain, enhance energy metabolism and physical activity, improve insulin sensitivity, improve eye function, improve mitochondrial metabolism and prevent age-linked changes in gene expression. In mice bred to be diabetic or obese, NMN improved both the action and secretion of insulin. NMN also protected the mouse heart from ischemia and/or reperfusion injury. It has restored skeletal muscle in aged mice, and slowed cognitive decline in a mouse model of Alzheimer’s disease, by improving the survival of neurons, improving energy metabolism, and reducing reactive oxygen species. It may help maintain the integrity of the blood brain barrier. NMN is likely a good candidate to suppress inflammaging—the increase in inflammation associated with aging—since studies show it lowers adipose tissue inflammation associated with age. In fact, older mice appear to be more responsive to NMN, in comparison with young mice.

The Science Behind NMN - A Stable, Reliable NAD+ Activator and Anti-Aging Molecule

NMN appears to be stable in water; in one study 93%–99% of NMN was maintained intact in drinking water at room temperature for 7–10 days. NMN also appears to be rapidly absorbed. When given to mice by oral gavage, there was a steep increase of plasma NMN in a mere two and a half minutes, with further increases at 5-10 minutes. Plasma levels then declined to baseline, suggesting rapid absorption in the gut.29 Long-term (1-year) NMN given orally, in doses of up to 300 mg/kg, was found to be safe and well tolerated in normal mice.29

LOOKING FORWARD: NMN AND HUMAN HEALTH NMN is clearly a murine fountain of youth. But what about humans? Shin-ichiro Imai has said that NMN

may improve adult human metabolism, rendering it more like that of someone ten or twenty years younger. His team is now studying NMN in humans. David Sinclair, Harvard University’s noted anti-aging researcher, whose research on resveratrol, NAD+ and sirtuins is world renowned, is also conducting human trials. He is taking NMN himself; he has said his lipid profile has improved dramatically and he feels more energetic and that his blood markers, at nearly 60 years old, are closer to those of a 31-year-old., An interesting question is the delivery system for oral NMN: the EVs that transport the molecule through plasma in the body are liposomes. A liposomal version of NMN may well mimic the body’s own transport system, enhancing uptake and delivery, as science advances its understanding of the holy grail of reversing aging.

Nitric Oxide:

Past, Present and Future By: Nathan S. Bryan, PhD Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, TX USA The following article is not endorsed and/or supported by The American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine.

INTRODUCTION The discovery of the human production of nitric oxide (NO) over 30 years ago transformed the way we think about treating and preventing cardiovascular related diseases. NO is a transient and gaseous signaling molecule that communicates specific and deliberate signals throughout the body in every organ system. The human body has two primary pathways to produce nitric oxide. One can compensate for the other but when production is shut down from both pathways, cells and tissues become dysfunctional followed by symptoms and disease. Loss of nitric oxide production is associated and even causal for most if not all chronic human disease. Therefore, restoring nitric oxide production may be one of the single most important therapeutic strategies for any health care practitioner. However, finding product technology, either drug therapy or nutritional and supplementation, is confusing and often fraught with products that do not work. The purpose of this article is provide a brief history on nitric oxide, its relevance for human health and where I see the future of NO based technologies.

HISTORY OF NITRIC OXIDE The chemical properties of NO gas were first characterized in 1772. With the recognition of its importance in industrial use in the preparation of nitric acid as well as its pollutant effects in the atmosphere in the 20th century, considerable literature on its fundamental chemistry emerged. NO is biologically active in the concentration range from 1-100nM [1] and is lipophilic so that it can readily permeate biological membranes. Due to its very short half-life in vivo, it is important to consider the spatial and temporal aspects of NO production, as well as the complex chemistry in which this seemingly simple molecule can participate. Ferid Murad first described nitric oxide as a vasodilator and elucidated the mechanism of action of organic nitrates such as nitroglycerin in 1977 [2]. Three years later, in 1980 Robert Furchgott discovered that our endothelial cells make a vasodilator substance. He termed his new discovery endothelium derived relaxing factor (EDRF) [3]. Then in 1987 both

Nitric Oxide: Past, Present and Future

Salvador Moncada and Louis Ignarro discovered that EDRF described by Furchgott is actually nitric oxide gas [4 5]. These series of discoveries identifying a new paradigm for cell signaling by a gas, nitric oxide, led to a Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1998 to Ferid Murad, Robert Furchgott and Louis Ignarro. This fundamental discovery allowed scientists to understand the regulation of blood flow throughout the body and created new targets for drug discovery. Historically, nitric oxide was considered a vasodilator.

NITRIC OXIDE TODAY Today with more than 165,000 published scientific papers on nitric oxide, we know it is much more than a vasodilator. Many of the known physiological effects of nitric oxide are known to be independent of the activation of soluble guanylyl cyclase that leads to vasodilation. At its core, it is a signaling molecule that affect protein structure and function [6]. One of its critical functions is the delivery of oxygen off of hemoglobin in the microcirculation. When oxygen rich blood is circulated from the lungs to the periphery, the oxygen is bound to the iron center of hemoglobin. It is nitric oxide that tells the hemoglobin to release oxygen during the arterial/venous transit [7]. Without NO, hemoglobin cannot release oxygen. So in order for efficient oxygen delivery, you must first have NO produced to dilate the blood vessels to get oxygen to individual cells but also have NO to signal hemoglobin to release the oxygen. Without nitric oxide, there is no oxygen delivery and without oxygen cells becomes dysfunctional and eventually die. NO is also a neurotransmitter in the central and peripheral nervous system [8]. We also know that as people age, they make less nitric oxide [9 10] and this is the primary reason for age related disease [11].

our aging population. Health care practitioners can no longer ignore nitric oxide in their patients. Patients cannot and will not heal without first restoring the production of nitric oxide. Development of NO based therapeutics is and will continue to be a major focus of biotech, pharmaceutical and nutritional companies. Education of the public and health care practitioners is essential since NO is absolutely necessary for patient health and for healing the human body.

HOW DO YOU KNOW A NITRIC OXIDE PRODUCT WORKS? The challenge is for physicians, healthcare practitioners and patients to understand what is the safest and most efficacious nitric oxide products available to them. The first thing you must understand is how the body normally makes nitric oxide and then you must recognize what goes wrong in people that cannot make it. If you don’t understand these two fundamental principles, then you can never effectively and efficiently restore your body’s nitric oxide production and as a result, you cannot optimize your body’s performance and health. There are two ways the body makes nitric oxide 1.

Through an enzymatic reaction using L-arginine and the enzyme nitric oxide synthase (NOS) [12]. This enzyme is found throughout the body, but primarily in the cells that line all blood vessels. L-arginine is a semi-essential amino acid, meaning that your body makes it through normal metabolism in the urea cycle and it is also found in many proteins we eat. When we eat protein and the protein is broken down into amino acids, L-arginine is provided to the body. Unless you have an inborn error in metabolism [13] (which is extremely rare), then your body will always make enough L-arginine to produce NO. The reaction to convert L-arginine to nitric oxide is complex and complicated and requires many different cofactors and substrates. For this pathway to work, the NOS enzyme must be active and functional.

2.

Through the metabolism of inorganic nitrate found in green leafy vegetables and some root vegetables. Nitrate is absorbed in the gut and concentrated in our salivary glands. There are nitrate reducing

FUTURE OF NITRIC OXIDE It is becoming increasingly clear that most if not all diseases are characterized or associated with perturbations in nitric oxide production/signaling. Therapeutics or strategies designed to restore normal NO homeostasis will have broad application and utility in human health and profoundly affect the health of

ANTI - AGING MEDICAL NEWS • WINTER 2019

109


Nitric Oxide: Past, Present and Future

bacteria that live in the crypts of our tongue that convert nitrate to nitrite and nitric oxide [14]. Our saliva then becomes high in nitrite and when we swallow our own saliva, we get nitric oxide produced in the lumen of the stomach provided there is stomach acid. For this pathway to work, people must consume sufficient nitrate from their diet (300-400mg), must have the right oral bacteria and must have sufficient stomach acid production.

WHAT GOES WRONG IN PEOPLE THAT CAN’T MAKE NITRIC OXIDE? The older we get, the less nitric oxide we make through L-arginine. This is because the enzyme NOS becomes dysfunctional and no longer converts L-arginine to nitric oxide [9]. This is termed endothelial dysfunction. The other problem is that most Americans do not consume sufficient vegetables to get enough nitrate. The typical American diet only contains 150mg per nitrate per day. We know we need at least 300 mg of nitrate per serving to lead to any appreciable production of nitric oxide, provided the person has the right oral bacteria and stomach acid production. Statistically, over 200 million Americans wake up everyday and use an antiseptic mouthwash. This represents over half of the US population. Therefore these folks get no nitric oxide benefit from nitrate in their diet or if they are taking a nitrate capsule. To make things even worse, there are over 100 million prescription written every year for proton pump inhibitors and even more for other antacid drugs. Now these drugs can be purchased over the counter. Therefore there may be another 100 million Americans that take antacids that are not reported by the prescription data. Collectively the majority of Americans become nitric oxide deficient based on their daily diet and hygienic practices along with certain prescription drug use.

HOW DO I FIND A PRODUCT THAT WORKS FOR ME? There are literally hundreds of nitric oxide products on the market. Most of these date back to 1998 after the Nobel Prize was awarded. These initial products contained L-arginine and/or L-citrulline. As described

110

above, there is really never a condition where people are deficient in L-arginine. Therefore taking a L-arginine product will not lead to any improvement in NO production, especially in patients that have endothelial dysfunction. In people that are nitric oxide deficient, the NOS enzyme doesn’t work. Furthermore, at least two clinical trials have demonstrated that giving L-arginine can make things worse [15 16]. Beet products have been popularized most recently. However, most of the beet products on the market do not contain any detectable nitrate so they offer no benefit with regards to nitric oxide production. There are however a few beet root products that have known amounts of nitrate. There is also a product that contains potassium nitrate in a capsule that is sold as a nitric oxide product. These are not nitric oxide products, these are nitrate products that in most cases do not lead to any NO formation or restoration. As described above, if people are using mouthwash, antibiotics, antacids and have poor oral hygiene, these products cannot and will not work [1720]. Statistically this is most of America. The take home message is that beet root does not equal nitrate does not equal nitric oxide. If your body can’t make NO then it makes no sense to give it precursors that it cannot convert. Look for a product that creates nitric oxide gas and actually improves the body’s own ability to produce nitric oxide on its own. This can only be demonstrated through scientific research and clinical trials. There are 3 questions you must ask yourself when considering a nitric oxide product for your health and wellness. 1.

2.

3.

Does the actual product have any published clinical trials in humans? Clinical trials are expensive and risky so you must have confidence that your product works. Very few companies actually put their product to the ultimate test in clinical trials. Does the product have any issued patents? Innovation and product superiority can be distinguished by issued patents. Is the technology licensed from a reputable University or Medical School? This will ensure there was actually research and some intellectual property on the product or product technology. Any company can put ingredients together but it does not mean there

is science or any valid research to back it. Has the formulator published in the NO field? If the product passes these three fundamental questions, then you can feel confident that the product may work for you and your patients. There are only a hand full of products on the market that fulfill these requirements. Unfortunately there are many companies out there that are good at marketing but poor at science. There are clear

deceptive trade practices and outright fraud by many of these companies. Finding an effective nitric oxide product for your patients will be the single most effective thing you can do for your patient. When you restore blood flow and signaling throughout the body, everything gets better. To the contrary, if you fail to address nitric oxide production in your patients, all other therapies will have limited effects. The future of health care and the care of Americans is dependent upon nitric oxide.

BIOGRAPHY: Dr. Bryan has spent the past 20 years researching nitric oxide. His many seminal discoveries in the field of nitric oxide has led to dozens of issued U.S. and International Patents. He has published hundreds of peer-reviewed studies on nitric oxide and is considered an international expert on nitric oxide biochemistry and physiology.
