Let’s face it, sexual health is important — testosterone levels should be checked on everyone!
Testosterone is an important part of every man’s health, and I suggest to my patients that they keep an eye on their levels, and normalize them if necessary.
Alot of men have erection issues. Some can be helped by Tribulus Fruit and Ashwaganda Root. These two herbs may very well be two of the most important nutrients for every man over 40.
These are difficult herbs to get out of food sources so supplements are the best approach. As usual, I recommend a Paleo diet, eating plenty of steak, eggs, nuts & seed, and vegetables…but chances are that food just isn’t enough. As you age, hormones diminish, so we can use these herbs to help provide the hormones material.
These two herbs are included in the Wellness Essential for Men vitamin packets. I have heard of many male clients taking the Wellness Essential for Men packets by Metagenics and note improvements in
- sexual desire
- erectile function
- sexual satisfaction
If your energy is really low, I suggest the Mitochondrial Renewal Kit by Xymogen in conjunction with the Wellness Essentials for Men. The Mitochondrial Renewal Kit contains Alpha-lipoic-acid, Resveratrol, and Arginine. Alpha-liopoic-acid can help men increase desire and stamina.
- Jump start your libido
- Extend your endurance

Telomere are a tiny section of DNA at the end of each of your chromosomes. The telomere protects your chromosomes from “unraveling” and deteriorating. It is the genetic equivalent of the plastic tips on the ends of your shoelaces. But every time your cells divide, the telomere gets shorter and shorter. When it disappears, your cells stop dividing and death occurs…
The great news is that emerging evidence shows you have a lot of control over the rate at which the telomere shortens. Certain health conditions may triple the rate at which they shorten. Vitamin C, on the other hand, has been shown to slow down the rate by as much as 62%. Understanding this process – and the factors that can affect it – is vital to your health and longevity.

Your risk of heart attack increases the faster your telomeres break down. Scientists looked at people in perfect health . . . who later died from heart disease. They found the death rate from heart attack was three times higher for men whose telomeres got short the fastest. The death rate for women was 2.3 times higher. (2009)
Journals of Gerontology
100 year olds in good health had “significantly longer” telomeres than those with health problems. (2008)
American Heart Association
People with shorter telomeres in their immune cells had twice the risk of death from heart failure as patients with the longest telomeres. The study, published in one of its key journals, looked at over 750 people with heart disease. The highest-risk group had telomeres half the length of the lowest-risk group. (2008)
Women with shorter telomeres are more likely to be overweight and insulin resistant. (2008)
American Association for Cancer Research
One of its flagship journals published a potential link between telomere length and colon cancer. (2006)
Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences
People with short telomeres are more likely to suffer from weaker immune systems and greater heart disease risk. (2004)
Nutrition to help maintain Telomeres – Mitochondrial Renewal Kit from XYMOGEN Order by calling 1-800-647-6100 use PIN # TUC500
Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is a serious and debilitating condition. Is there a solution for those who are unlucky enough to suffer from CFS to get well again?
Some people feel flu-like symptoms, dizziness, “brain fog”, poor concentration, headaches and most of all, severely exhausted and completely drained. Literally weeks and months of this severely exhaustion can go by.
My experiences with numerous patients who suffer with CFS, has led me to a supplement called Mitichondrial Renewal Kit by XYMOGEN. The Mitochondrial Renewal Kit helps to improve insulin sensitivity and action; improve glucose transport; increase Nitric Oxide production; improve cardiovascular function; improve appetite control; reduce fat mass; increase muscle mass; improve movement ability; improve antioxidant status.
The experience of working with CFS has taught me that nutrition actually plays a key role in helping people feel better. It’s not about beating CFS – it’s about working with it to attain better health. CFS treatment requires intense hands on participation from your Doctor and you! My advice to all patients with CFS is to work with a Doctor who can help you fine tune your nutritional needs!
Can we make more mitochondria? YES! Why we want to keep our mitochondria healthy. Mitochondria help maintain fitness and healthy aging.
Aging degrades motivation, cognition, sensory modalities and physical capacities, essentially dimming zestful living. Bradykinesis (declining physical movement) is a highly reliable biomarker of aging and mortality risk. The benefits of healthy mitochondria include: ATP production; decreased oxidative stress; increased metabolic functions; increased energy levels; increased exercise ability & performance; decreased body fat and increased lean body mass.
I recommend the Mitochondrial Renewal Kit by XYMOGEN as not only providing powerful antioxidants but to increase mitochondrial cell growth.
This is a post that mentions the current methods scientists are telling us we can extend our lifespan:
– 30% overall reduction but it must be nutritionally adequate –
– Excessive restriction leads to muscle wasting
– Proven to increase mean life span
– — Rodents restricted to 40-60% of calories: 65% increase in mean life span
– — 50% increase in maximum life span if restrictions start before puberty
– increase mean life span by 30% for mammals
– no proven increase in maximum life span
– some studies are contradictory
Sirtuin activators (resveratrol)
– prolong life span of Saccharomyces cerevisiae by 70%
– increased life span for fruit flies, nematodes, killifish
In addition, I believe we need manual joint therapy and the use of the Deep Muscle Stimulator (DMS) that allows our joints to maintain mobility and stability; our muscles need to maintain mass through proper strength training; we need to maintain lung capacity by doing some cardio sprint work, and our diet needs to include proper antioxidants.
I recommend the Mitochondrial Renewal Kit by XYMOGEN and the XYMOGEN functional food shake called i5 as part of meeting life extension goals.
