Dr. David Sinclair on his Morning Supplements
Athletic Green AG1
“Now, the third supplement I mentioned is Athletic Greens. Because I'm on a vegetarian/vegan diet, which I describe as being a newbie struggling vegan, I need to ensure I get all the necessary nutrients. Athletic Greens is full of vitamins and plant-based whole foods that ensure I don't lack those nutrients. When you're on a vegan diet and have also given up dairy, it's crucial to make sure there's adequate nutrition.”
“I typically follow a one-meal-a-day (OMAD) pattern, but I want to add another couple of letters to that, making it ANOMAD (Adequate Nutrition One Meal A Day). I just made that up, by the way, so consider it trademarked. Adequate nutrition is key, and that's what Athletic Greens provides for me.”
Nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN): 1g per day, in the morning
To improve absorption, David combines NMN supplements with olive oil or natural yogurt.
NMN acts as a precursor to NAD+, a molecule vital for cellular metabolism and sustaining youthful levels in the body. Dr. David Sinclair utilizes NMN to promote NAD+ production and potentially extend the aging process.
Resveratrol: 1g per day, in the morning
David combines 1000mg of Resveratrol with olive oil and consumes it each morning. This combination complements NMN by activating Sirtuin genes and aiding in DNA repair processes.
Spermidine: 1 mg per day, in the morning
Spermidine is present in foods such as cheese, legumes, mushrooms, and soy, influencing aging processes. It has links to a decreased risk of neurodegenerative diseases, cardiovascular issues, and cancer-related mortality in humans.
Quercetin and Fisetin: 500 mg each, once per day, in the morning
Quercetin and Fisetin have the ability to eliminate senescent cells, which are cells that resist dying. These potent flavonoids act as antioxidants and are recognized for their capacity to decrease inflammation and tissue damage associated with aging.
Vitamin D3: 4,000 to 5,000 IU per day
Vitamin D is vital for various bodily processes, including bone health and immunity. Vitamin D deficiency is common, and symptoms like fatigue, hair loss, sleep disturbances, and bone pain may indicate the need for vitamin D supplementation.
Vitamin K2: 180 to 360 micrograms per day,
Vitamin K2 plays a significant role in bone and mitochondrial health. It can be naturally obtained from sources like leafy greens, whole grains, and natural oils.
Dr. David Sinclair has been using Statin since the age of 29 and now maintains the heart health of a 20-year-old. However, it's crucial to emphasize that Statin may not be suitable for everyone, He uses it because his family has a history of heart problems.
Low-dose aspirin: 85 mg per day,
Dr. David Sinclair consumes a daily dose of 85 mg of Aspirin, potentially for heart stroke protection. However, it's vital to exercise caution with large Aspirin doses due to the risk of bleeding.
TMG (Trimethylglycine or betaine): 500 mg to 1,000 mg per day
TMG, or Trimethylglycine is a naturally occurring compound, also known as betaine, plays a crucial role in supporting several biochemical processes within the body. It acts as a methyl group donor, facilitating essential functions like liver health and cellular replication.
Omega-3 fatty acids play a crucial role in heart health and cognitive function. Omega-3 supplementation may help mitigate signs of aging by maintaining skin hydration and reducing inflammation. It's important to note that daily omega-3 intake should not exceed 3 grams to prevent potential side effects like low blood pressure and diarrhea.
