Anybody following Dr. Sandra Kaufmann's protocol?

I would like to hear about your experience.

Thanks

    • Thank  you for your answer, I am female, 57 and have been taking practically all the recommended molecular agents  for 10 months now. My results: definitely more energy, far better sleep, better mental sharpness, probably better skin, lost weight eating the same (didn't have any big issues with weight to start with but still lost about 3 kg) and a good overall feeling (maybe only due to the fact I am doing something against aging).  The cons: loads of pills to swallow.

  • I'm getting the book soon and will use it to create a program for us. I've got a number of supplements we take already but it's a hodgepodge made up of what we happened to come across reading the research on our own. I'm hoping to use it to trim down what we're doing and cut the cost of the supplements.

    • Dan That would be great, looking forward to getting this new program. In the meantime, where can I find a list of those anti-aging supplements you guys are  taking already?

      Jennifer Klein I have a post somewhere detailing but I can't seem to find it. Anyhow the core is NAD, ALA/ALC, Phosphatidylcholine, CoQ10 (Ubiqinol), Quercetin and Resveratrol (enhanced by having taken a NAD regime). Those are the core ones, we take a  amino acids to fill in since we're vegan (creatine and another), the rest is mainly plant derivatives.

    • Dan Thanks Dan, many of the  supplements/adjuvants that you mentioned are included in the Kaufmann Protocol.  Amino acids -as Leucine- are included too to prevent sarcopenia in the case of taking Metformin. Looking forward to  your feedback once you read the book.

      Jennifer Klein OK! Thanks for the encouragement, I've been meaning to get around to it and just got the Kindle version. Perusing it this is fantastic, I'm a engineer (nee scientist) so appreciate her digging into the details. 

       

      For the ALA/ALC look up Bruce Ames who created the Ames test, which is what is used to detect the effect of (e.g. carcinogenic) compounds on it. There's several videos of him showing the research, this one isn't great but anyhow the point is that the combination of ALA and ALC restores mitochondrial energy production to youthful levels in mice, but fixing the CoQ10/etc production mechanism.

    • Dan Thanks Dan for the video, I will look up more videos and do more reading  about the ALA/ALC combination.

      Jennifer Klein Yes specifically the two together address mitochondrial disfunction, ALC by itself only addresses part of that problem. One thing to note is you need to have sufficient biotin in your diet or supplementation, they found some people with low biotin could suffer from skin flushing. 

      Otherwise I've done a scan of her book. Excellent work, not as expansive as I expected - I had thought she'd cover more supplements, but she certainly has all the big guns in there. On effects I've talked about I do notice a drop in 'pep' when I go off of them. (Pure anecdotal hand waving) - it could be placebo but I don't think so, it appears to be that without the supplements my general pep goes down, presumably from the mitochondria not functioning as well. Example of this was a period were I simply forgot to take my supplements and didn't notice, but I did notice a drop in energy and focus. Resuming fixed it and my energy came back.  

      In terms of this the ones that make the biggest difference, that I notice, is ALA/ALC, CoQ10 and PtC.

  • Hello, I have been doing the Kaufmann protocol "panacea" for a few months now and one result has been to rid myself of inflammation in my right shoulder, that I  had for years. I corresponded with Dr. Kaufmann already, and she suggested adding  EGCg (green tea extract) to the protocol which I have done. I do not know if there will be many noticeable effects in the near future, but just the idea that it will be possible to outlive my expected expiration date is a huge turn on for me!  It is hard for me to remember to take all the capsules in a day so I put all the days ration in one little vial that I carry around with me. A challenge is travelling and taking the immortality supplements along. It can be quite an ambitious task explaining to customs agents that all the 200 colored capsules you are carrying are just your one week ration for age reversal!
