Vince Guiliano is a prolific writer nearing 80 years old who has assembled a fascinating collection of information on human aging and how to slow it by using dietary supplements. Among his efforts to date are the Anti-Aging Firewalls blog and extensive overviews of the anti-aging properties of many dietary supplements.

Guiliano takes a large variety and quantity of dietary supplements and explains how he believes each of them assists in maintaining his health and slowing his aging:

Are my 135 pills a day an overkill? Perhaps. Perhaps I could eliminate taking 20% of them. Perhaps. The issue is that I don’t know which 20%. How many more years of life span will these firewalls buy you or me? Again, I don’t know. Part of the answer depends on your genetic makeup, age, lifestyle and history of course. But that ducks the question. Even if you were an “average” 65 year-old I would not know. Personally at the age of almost 79, I am looking for another 140 good years. Clearly this will require new breakthroughs and my hope and expectation is that these constantly improving firewalls will keep me going until these breakthroughs come along.

For those people who want to understand the how and why of what these supplements do, Vince’s web site Anti-Aging Firewalls is an excellent reference. It explains 14 different aging theories and how he uses diet, supplements, and lifestyle choices to address each one:

  1. Oxidative Damage
  2. Cell DNA Damage
  3. Mitochondrial Damage
  4. Tissue Glycation
  5. Lipofuscin Accumulation
  6. Chronic Inflammation
  7. Immune System Compromise
  8. Neurological Degeneration
  9. Declines in Hormone Levels
  10. Susceptibility to Cancers
  11. Susceptibility to Cardiovascular Disease
  12. Telomere Shortening and Damage
  13. Programmed Epigenomic Changes
  14. Decline in Adult Stem Cell Differentiation

For those who want a simpler program of dietary supplements focusing on top choices, Vince has created a Top Ten Dietary Supplements web page which explains why he views these ten supplements to be the most important ones:

  • Resveratrol
  • Fish oils (EPA and DHA)
  • Curcumin
  • R-Alpha Lipoic Acid
  • Acetyl L-Carnitine
  • Green tea (ECGC)
  • Vitamin D3
  • L-Carnosine
  • Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10)
  • Astragalus root
