The fountain of youth. This is something we’ve been in search of for what seems like eons. Whether it be having the latest beauty procedures, adopting new eating habits, or taking supplements, there are many options out there to support your anti-aging and longevity goals. If you are interested in ensuring you live better and longer, then here’s a podcast you will want to add to your listening library.

Peter H. Grossman MD, FACS has been educating listeners (and viewers) with his podcast, Beauty and The BS. The popular podcast has been helping listeners sift through all the anti-aging options available. Separating the speculation from the facts. Up until now, Dr. Grossman has focussed on his medical specialty. The world of cosmetic medicine, looking into “the benefits and cautionary tales of the pursuit of beauty.” 

The Longevity Series Podcast …

The accomplished LA-based medical specialist has expanded his content offering Beauty and The BS: The Longevity Series.

In this special four-part series, Dr. Grossman will feature three Longevity specialists who have helped reshape what true beauty is, how anti-aging should be viewed, and how you can achieve it.

His goal? To know whether we can prevent aging. 

Featuring World Renowned Longevity Experts 

Dr. Grossman will be kicking off this podcast series with some of the world’s leading thought leaders and scientists In longevity. Here are just some of his upcoming guests. A formidable lineup of experts is not to be missed.

1. Aubrey de Gray

Aubrey de Gray is the first of three Longevity experts featured on the podcast. He has been at the forefront of anti-aging research for over 20 years. As a biomedical gerontologist, he is the Chief Science Officer of the SENS Research Foundation, (a California-based biochemical charity that is dedicated to combating the aging process). He is the Editor-in-Chief of Rejuvenation Research, the world’s highest-impact peer-reviewed journal focused on intervention in aging. He is also a Fellow of both the Gerontological Society of America and the American Aging Association. 

His approach to anti-aging isn’t trying to slow it down or prevent it, but rather, repairing the damage caused by aging on a molecular and cellular level. Aging causes many different types of cellular damage, but some are harder to repair than others. Through his development of a potentially comprehensive plan for repairing said damage (SENS), he was able to identify detailed approaches to addressing the seven major classes of damage. 

2. Charles M Brenner 

CoQ10, prebiotics, and omega-3 fatty acids. These are just a few supplements that are believed to promote longevity. However, no one can really provide solid evidence for this claim. As a skeptic of supplements promising to help you live longer, Charles M Brenner is known for his discovery of the behavior of nicotinamide riboside (NR). A precursor to coenzyme NAD, it is a central regulator of metabolism. 

“While I am comfortable with a use case of NR of aging better, I don’t think there are drugs or supplements for longevity.” He explains that aging is a complex process that can be accelerated easily. In the journey for age reversal, many are merely looking for biomarkers. 

According to Dr. Brenner, “you’re not going to get to 100 years old with fad diets (or supplements).” If this is the case, what can we do? “Eat good food. Get good sleep”, says Dr. Brenner. He added that we should “be physically active, mentally engaged. Don’t take medicines you don’t need. Avoid taking lots of drugs. Don’t smoke. The people that live the happiest, best lives are active and doing the things they want to do.”

3. Brian Kennedy 

“Aging is the biggest risk factor for everything, and we need to do something about it.” These are the words of Dr. Kennedy, who has established himself globally for his research in the basic biology of aging.

He is a visionary committed to translating research discoveries into new ways of detecting, delaying, preventing, and treating human aging. As a distinguished professor of Biochemistry and Physiology at the National University of Singapore, he also runs the Center for Healthy Longevity, which demonstrates the effects that interventions have on human aging. 

Through his research, Dr. Kennedy shares the importance of markers that can quantify biological aging at any chronological age. According to him, these markers “can predict biological age, not from your skin, but the age of your whole body, using things like inflammatory markers and metabolomes.

“Kennedy uses his own age as an example, saying, “I’m 54, and my biological age says I’m 50… that’s measuring my biological age.” This indicates that he is aging better than his chronological age.

Don’t Miss The First Episode 

The first episode of the series features guest Dr. Aubrey De Grey. Dr. Grossman discusses the significance of gerontology and biogerontology in the aging process with Dr.Gray. In addition, how repairing molecular and cellular damage can counteract aging, and how stem cell therapy can be a useful damage repair strategy.
