What’s happening Stackers,
This week’s edition is about keeping your body and mind youthful. Who doesn’t want that?!
If you don’t already know, the fountain of youth is a water spring that supposedly restores the youth of anyone who drinks or bathes in its waters.
The search for this time reversing reservoir has presented itself in the form of creams, surgeries, extreme diets and exercise, and pills. We’ll get our hands on anything to keep us from aging.
Let’s find out how we can “go back in time” and find our younger selves with these fresh new studies.
Anti-aging pomegranate compound passes human trial
Medical Press features a new Nature Metabolism study which explores the anti-aging compound, urolithin A from pomegranates. Researchers found that UA can slow down the mitochondrial aging process but not everyone produces UA naturally.
- 60 older adults who are healthy but sedentary people took a single dose between 250 and 2,000 mg of UA.
- The participants were split in four groups, each receiving a placebo, 250mg, 500mg or 1000mg daily dose of UA for 28 days.
- They found that UA stimulates mitochondrial biogenesis - the process by which cells increase mitochondrial mass - the same way regular exercise does.
- In fact, UA is the only known compound that re-establishes cell’s ability to regenerate mitochondria - in young people this process happens naturally but as we age our body starts to lose its power to do so.
Fast walkers may live 15–20 years longer than the rest of us
- Researchers monitored walking habits and death rates of nearly 475,000 people, most of whom were in their 50s at the start of the study.
- Participants with brisk walking paces had longer life expectancies - the results showed about a 15-year average difference for women and a 20-year average difference for men.
- This rang true across all categories of BMI - basically stating that physical function is a stronger determinant of longevity than body mass index.
Vitamin D - won’t lower risk of heart attack, but helps health
- Researchers decided to combine the results of 21 randomized clinical trials with a total of 83,000 participants to find if vitamin D really doesn’t have any cardiovascular benefit.
- After analyzing the data from previous studies, the results showed that vitamin D had no cardiovascular and mortality benefit.
- However, they did conclude that vitamin D has positive effects on bone health and quality of life.

Natural Stacks habitué
Natural Stacks fan, Josh is a working father of two.
He found Natural Stacks when he was looking for something to rebuild his health. He recently had some nasty bouts of diverticulitis and a gut surgery.
On top of a difficult emotional time, he felt lost and unable to process what was going on. Using the stacks has helped him rebuild the gut-brain connection again.
Josh’s experience with Natural Stacks has been, “Nothing but positive. I’ve made vast strides in my health and recovery that I wasn’t making before starting the stacks.”
“It’s helped to rebuild my insides with good things, during a time when rebuilding was very important.”
John uses Natural Stacks stacks such as The Essentials Stack which includes Vitamin D3, MagTech, and Curcumin.
