Is any one familiar with his work? He is taking supplements I have not heard of here is a excerpt from a post I found on Quora:
Lithium salts have a side effect, which is that it damages the kidney . Is there a way to reduce the side effects of lithium salts?According to related research, N-Acetylcysteine ameliorates lithium-induced renal failure in rats.
(I usually take lithium with glutathione, NAC, glycine and betaine to protect liver and kidney )
According to A triple drug combination targeting components of the nutrient-sensing network maximizes longevity, rapamycin treatment results in insulin resistance and dyslipidemia in patients and mice, and this disturbance manifests as hypertriglyceridemia in Drosophila. Lithium reversed this and the starvation resistance associated with rapamycin treatment. In this study, double combinations of lithium and rapamycin, lithium and trametinib, or rapamycin and trametinib produced a reproducibly greater lifespan extension than controls, on average 30%, compared to each compound alone, which extended lifespan by an average of 11%. Remarkably, the triple drug combination increased lifespan by 48%.
If treatment of cancer is the target, not longevity, combining with modified rice bran may be more potent.
That study had only one patient.
“In a now 59 years old patient with inoperable (BRAF-mutant) low differentiated adenocarcinoma of bilary ducts after 30GY radiotherapy and two cycles (Gemcitabin+ Cisplatin) chemotherapy a rapid progression of lung, liver and brain metastases were by CT and MR established. Thereafter, a teatment with BRAF+MEK inhibitors (2x150 mg dabrafenib and 1 x 2 mg trametinib) was started. These inhibitors were combined with daily 45 mg/kg rice bran arabinoxylan concentrate (using Biobran/MGN-3) which was shown to be a pathogenic associated molecular pattern (PAMP)-like molecule and can stimulate the type-1 innate immune cells against tumor cells.”
“Results: After the chemotherapy and prior to the start of second line treatment, the patient had a nearly terminal state of her rapidly progressive disease. Eight months after the combination of MEK / BRAF inhibitor and immunomodulator therapy nearly complete remissions of all metastases was established in CT and MR.”
Folks, I think that nobody should be taking a supplement regimen based on results in flies…
From the paper mentioned above…
"additively to increase longevity in Drosophila
Please don’t start taking drugs and supplements based on these types of results… its interesting, but we need a lot more evidence in mammals before considering it.
Geroscientists at the recent longevity summit were discussing (and rolling their eyes) about the crazy biohackers that make decisions on supplements or drugs based on drosophila (fly) or c.elegans (worm) research. Don’t be one of those people please.
Most fly and worm study results do not translate to humans.
“Myricetin has been noted to prolong average (18%) and maximal (21.7%) lifespan in C. Elegans , which was a potency greater than other tested flavanols (quercetin, kaempferol, and naringenin) associated with reducing oxidative damage to the mitochondrial and proteins; when tested in mev-1(kn1) mutants (reduced lifespan associated with higher mitochondrial oxidative stress) all flavonoids reduced mitochondrial oxidative stress (in a manner not related to DAF-16 translocation) yet only myricetin increased average lifespan (16%) in these mutants.”
I have not taken any anti-aging drugs yet. I will try 1) capers (substitute for rapamycin - has more affinity to Everolimus), 2) myricetin supplement or cranberries (trametinib substitute), and 3) lithium.
The docking studies support Kaempferol to be a potential ligand with docking score values of 33.4 (3CQU-3D structure of AKT1)] and 27.3 (2FAP-3D structure of FRB domain of mTOR) respectively as compared to that of standard drug Everolimus with 24.4 (3CQU-3D structure of AKT1) and 20.1 (2FAP-3D structure of FRB domain of mTOR) respectively. Docking studies along with ADMET results shows that Kaempferol has favorable drug likeliness properties and bind to the same active site (site1) of the targeted proteins (3CQU-3D structure of AKT1) and (2FAP-3D structure of FRB domain of mTOR) where the standard drug Everolimus is known to bind. Conclusion The study exhibited that Kaempferol was having a better binding affinity towards the receptor FKBP12, a Rapamycin Binding Domain and AKT serine/threonine-protein kinase resulting in its better efficacy in the mTORC1 inhibition as when compared with standard drug Everolimus against HCC.
Capers have the highest level of kaempferol.
It just got dried capers in salt two days ago. Rinsed them several times, to remove the salt, and soaked them overnight for good measure. Dried them in a dehydrator. Waiting for the myricetin to arrive in two days. Lithium? I am poking around to find out a suitable dosage.
I plan to take it three days a week. Most people here take rapamycin once a week. Because of the half-life, the rapa, probably stays in the body about three to four days. Myricetin has a half life of eleven hours. But kaempferol has a half life of only 3-4 hours. I have to plan a more frequent dosing, maybe BID or TID.
