Podcast cover

Dr. Valter Longo returns to the podcast to talk about his new book, The Longevity Diet. The Italian scientist is professor in Gerontology and Biological Science and director of the Longevity Institute at the University of Southern California (USC) in Los Angeles.  The book, already a best-seller in Italy, is the result of decades of research - including laboratory and field studies - into the mechanisms behind the aging process.  The diet is based on a low protein and fish-based plan with periodic periods of fasting. In this in-depth interview Dr. Longo explains why he believes it is the optimal regime to live a long and healthy life; how getting to the age of 110 is a realistic goal, and why the word ‘intermittent’ should be banished from conversations about diet.

Rank #7: Satchin Panda - embracing the circadian rhythm for better health

Podcast cover

Satchin Panda is a professor at the Salk Institute and a founding executive member of the Center for Circadian Biology at the University of California, San Diego.  Dr. Panda is also the author of a new book, The Circadian Code, in which he explains his theory that our overall health and longevity is affected more by when we eat than what we eat. Timing, he says, is  everything.  Limiting the number of hours during which we consume our meals is pivotal to nurturing the body clock and could help us avoid the chronic diseases of old age, he believes. Dr. Panda’s research is compelling and potentially life-changing.  In this LLAMA podcast interview, with Peter Bowes, he explains what it means to adopt a ‘time-restricted eating’ pattern; why choosing to eat in a shorter time window could help us sleep better and be more alert during the day; and how we can all get involved in a research project cataloging the circadian rhythms of thousands of people around the world.

They say sixty is the new forty. Seventy, the new fifty. But what does that mean? We are living longer, but are we living better? Sandra Feaster, a registered nurse and health coach, approaches aging with the same ghusto that an accomplished mountain climber tackles the highest peaks.  She says growing older is an “incredible journey” that embraces the realities of aging while continuing to live life to the full.

In this LLAMA podcast interview, with Peter Bowes, Sandra explains her retire, pivot or die philosophy, her disdain for “fake” health news and why she believes we should all lead a more “mindful” life.

Rank #10: Mathias Basner - Improving sleep hygiene for better health

Podcast cover
Read more

The cumulative effects of chronic sleep deprivation could be shortening our lives. There is evidence that killer diseases are more likely to occur if we get too little sleep over a prolonged period. One reason why we may not be getting enough shut-eye is excessive noise. Mathias Basner is Associate Professor of Sleep and Chronobiology in Psychiatry at the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine and President of the International Commission of Biological Effects of Noise. For the past two decades he has been studying the effects of noise on sleep. It could be the sound of airplanes overhead, the rattling of a heating system or noisy air conditioning that keeps us awake, but research suggests there is a significant connection between noise, sleep, and recuperation.  In this LLAMA podcast interview, recorded at TEDMED 2018, Dr Basner explains the basis for his research and the lifestyle lessons he’s learned through the study of environmental stresses and society’s big problem of sleep deprivation.

Rank #11: Charles Brenner - scientist explains “age better” vitamin B3 supplement

Podcast cover
Read more
There has been a lot of buzz recently surrounding a new supplement that could boost our energy levels as we grow old. It is a recently discovered form of vitamin B3 and has been widely touted as a possible tool to enhance the aging process. We are going to take a deep dive into what it is and how it works.

Nicotinamide riboside (NR) is converted by the body into nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) which is an essential molecule found in every living cell and plays a significant role in energy production, regulation of the circadian rhythm and cognitive function.

Dr. Charles Brenner is one of the world’s leading authorities on the biochemistry behind NR and its potential to extend life in some organisms. Dr. Brenner is the Roy J. Carver Chair and Head of Biochemistry at the University of Iowa and founding co-director of the University of Iowa Obesity Initiative. He is also chief scientific adviser to Chromadex, a California-based company behind the NR supplement, Tru Niagen.

In this in-depth interview, Dr Brenner explains the significance of NAD and why he believes supplementation with NR could help us "age better." He also elaborates on why he refuses to describe NR as “miraculous or magic” and explains why he is uncomfortable with the often-heard expression, 'anti-aging,’ in the marketing of human longevity.

Rank #12: Doug Orchard - filmmaker explores complexities of fasting

Podcast cover
Read more
The extraordinary power of fasting evokes many human emotions, from visceral opposition to a religious adherence to the age-old practice. Going without food can be dangerous and could lead to death under certain circumstances. But medically supervised fasting regimes or diets based on calorie restriction and time-restricted feeding, could be helpful in treating common ailments and even chronic diseases. The topic is explored in great depth in ‘Fasting,' a new documentary by Doug Orchard, a filmmaker, cinematographer and self-experimenter. The film examines seven different methods of fasting and weighs the pros and cons. In this wide-ranging interview Doug explains his respect for fasting; how he has come to understand the limitations of the practice and why he believes in a strict daily feeding regime. He also discusses his own bodily transformation and dawn-to-dusk adherence to exercise, movement and meal windows.

Fitness after fifty was never something that occurred to veteran financier James P. Owen, during his hectic life in corporate America. But when he turned seventy, the former Wall Street rainmaker and author of the best-selling book, Cowboy Ethics, had an epiphany. He discovered he could move. Jim founded the Center for Cowboy Ethics and Leadership to spread the message that “we can all be heroes in our own lives,” but it was not until relatively late in life that he says he discovered his true purpose. Over the past seven years he has transformed his life, applying his much-lauded ‘rules of the west’ to a disciplined fitness regime. The result is a body and lifestyle that defies his age and a new book, Just Move: A New Approach to Fitness After 50, in which Jim shares his wisdom. In this LLAMA podcast interview he explains how “fighting off old age” involves shadowboxing, weightlifting, walking and a focus on "functional fitness."
