Overview

A medically proven program to prevent and reverse the DNA damage that causes aging

You have it in your power to retain the health, beauty, and vitality of youth well past fifty or sixty and beyond. All of us grow older, but it's a medically proven fact that how we age is a choice. With a few simple lifestyle changes, you can reap amazing visible and tangible benefits in just a few days—and this groundbreaking book shows you how.

Written by an all-star team of internationally acclaimed anti-aging experts, The Anti-Aging Solution is the first guide to reveal how you can reverse aging on a genetic level. By following a uniquely effective five-step program—which includes stress-reduction techniques, easy-to-follow dietary guidelines, moderate exercise, inexpensive skin treatments, and supplements—you can reverse DNA damage, enhance DNA repair, and start to look younger, feel younger, and be younger right away. The Anti-Aging Solution shows you how to:
* Say goodbye to aching joints, sagging skin, and fatigue
* Improve the quality and function of the genetic material in your cells
* Ramp up your body's self-repair functions
* Increase your stamina, endurance, and sex drive
* Dramatically improve your resistance to disease, including many cancers
* Have more youthful, radiant skin

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Anti-aging expert Giampapa (Quantum Longevity), DNA researcher Pero and nutritionist Zimmerman present a five-step program that claims to reverse the aging process. Before readers can say they've seen this before, the authors insist their book is different because it "attacks aging at its genetic roots with a comprehensive plan." Giampapa, Pero and Zimmerman first present a set of simple self-examinations for readers to "factor their personal aging equation" by measuring "aging indicators" like chronic pain, poor memory and reduced mobility. After a detailed explanation of how poor nutrition and free-radical damage promote aging, the authors present their program, which intends to change "the way our genes express themselves." The five stages consist of reducing stress, enhancing nutrition, exercising regularly, using dietary supplements and caring for the skin. For each step, the authors offer an abundance of helpful pointers; their advice on nutrition and its effects is particularly useful. Among the book's perks are easy to follow, color-coded charts detailing a healthy diet (which can be modified for vegetarians), recommended exercise routines that are beneficial but not overly demanding, skin care regimens and a list of suppliers of nutraceuticals (natural, bioactive chemical compounds that have health-promoting, disease-preventing or medicinal properties). (Mar.) Forecast: With a $75,000 marketing budget, publicity in New York and New Jersey, and national print and radio campaigns, this book has a shot at selling out its 50,000-copy first printing.
