Overview

Stop Aging Now! is based on hundreds of trailblazing studies by scientists from prestigious institutions, including Harvard University and the National Institutes of Health, who are discovering the incredible truth about the aging process: that much of it is not inevitable, and that what we call "normal aging" is actually often due to unsuspected deficiencies that can be readily corrected by taking antioxidant vitamins, minerals, herbs and food chemicals. Such "youth potions" can dramatically slow aging at any time of life and can even turn back the clock for people in their sixties, seventies and eighties. These antiaging potions are not only remarkably safe at effective dosages, but easily obtainable; they are in your food, in your vitamin bottle and in your health food store. In this exciting, groundbreaking guide organized in an easy-to-use format, you will find out exactly which antiaging supplements to take every day, and in what quantities, to forestall premature aging and regain vital functions. For example, leading scientists have discovered that: vitamins and minerals can rejuvenate immune functions, restoring youthful resistance to infectious diseases and cancer; certain vitamins can prevent and reverse memory loss and other signs of "senility"; herbs, such as ginkgo, can revitalize the circulatory system and brain functioning; natural antioxidants in foods and supplements can prevent clogged arteries, heart attacks and general bodily deterioration; and many unfamiliar but readily available food chemicals promise to stretch life expectancy and preserve or restore youth and vitality. With Stop Aging Now!, Jean Carper, nationally syndicated columnist and leading authority on health and nutrition, proves that everyone, at any age of life, can take action to slow down or reverse the aging process.

Discusses various vitamins, minerals & foods & their anti- aging benefits/senility/failing immunity/cataracts/etc.

Editorial Reviews

Kathy Broderick
Popular nutrition writer Carper offers a quick, readable guide that focuses on stopping (and even reversing) the effects of aging on our bodies. Research suggests that aging happens after cells have been bombarded with "free radicals" for so long that they cease to function. Free radicals come in many forms (fats, pollutants, and even oxygen are included), and in a perfect world, they would be neutralized by natural antioxidants (such as vitamins E and C and garlic). However, when we neglect to feed our bodies these antioxidants, the free radicals do more damage--and hence we age. Carper, therefore, argues for an antioxidant-rich diet supplemented by megadoses of vitamins, thereby keeping our cells healthy and major diseases such as cancer and heart disease at bay. The first half of the book discusses the most important "antiaging" vitamins, and Carper details the types and doses of supplements we should take. The second half of the book recommends specific foods to eat and beverages to drink. Filled with illuminating facts about the American diet ("More than half of Americans do not eat a single serving of fruit, vegetables or fruit juice on any given day" ), Carper also shares which vitamin supplements (and how much) researchers in the field take. However, dietary needs of growing children and pregnant women are covered only superficially. The book concludes with a list of medical and scientific writings that Carper referenced in researching this book.
