As we mentioned earlier, maintaining our health as we age requires that we address the health of our glandular/hormonal system. Fascinating research has been done in endocrinology by Dr. Walter Pierpaoli MD. Dr. Pierpaoli and his colleagues discovered the biological clock in the human brain is the pineal gland. Melatonin is the anti-aging molecule which the pineal gland produces at night to re-synchronize the endocrine system which has a profound effect on our overall health. Melatonin is also a powerful antioxidant which is many times more powerful than vitamins C and E. During the night melatonin facilitates the repair and replacement of cells and mops up the free radicals which cause cellular damage. Melatonin protects the heart and is a cancer preventative.
As the pineal gland ages it produces less melatonin which has the effect of aging the entire endocrine system. This causes the deterioration of the body and brain. Dr. Pierpaoli has developed a protocol to restore youthful levels of melatonin and thus halt or reverse the aging of the pineal gland. This has a cascading positive effect on the rest of the body.
Dr. Pierpaoli recommends the following melatonin dosages
according to age:

3. Finally, the third component for overall core wellness is a healthy digestive system. Without optimal digestion, we cannot properly absorb the nutrients our cells require to function properly. Optimal digestion begins in the gut with the flora of good bacteria that functions as our "second brain." A healthy colon contains thousands of varieties of live bacteria that forms the basis of our immune system. Any invading bacteria are over-powered and eliminated. A healthy gut is also important to prevent cardiovascular disease, diabetes and Typically, though, we do not have a properly balanced gut flora due to poor diet and antibiotic overuse for example. Most children before the age of three have already had multiple courses of antibiotics to treat various illnesses which contributes to the destruction of beneficial bacteria in the intestines. Our diets consists of high amounts of processed foods which may feed our taste buds but serve to starve our intestinal inhabitants. Intestinal bacteria thrive on soluble fiber from fruits and vegetables which we often neglect in our diets. One example of a near perfect gut fruit is the kiwifruit. Studies have demonstrated how eating two whole kiwifruits per day have a dramatic impact on our gut health and immune system. Because it is nearly impossible for most people to obtain fresh in season kiwifruit year round, Xtend-Life has developed a super concentrated whole kiwifruit in a convenient supplement.
