Aren't you concerned? Recommended by a fraud…
No, I guess I should not have truncated Dr Gundry’s quote. This is the entirety of Dr Gundry’s quote on longevinex (bold face added):
"I’ve been a huge fan of a supplement that you get out of Las Vegas called Longevinex and if you’re not on Longevinex, then you probably ought to be, both of you. It’s Longevienx.com. I’ve been taking it for 10 years at least, I have no affiliation with them, I don’t think they even know I exist. They’ve actually got some of the only data that proves that their formulation of resveratrol is an active form that actually works in humans. I got turned on to it by David Sinclair the Harvard Researcher on Resveratrol years ago. Because he was actually taking it during all his research even though he could take his own compound. Turns out his compound was worthless
but he made $600 million on it and Merc threw it away after they bought it and discovered it was worthless, but that’s a great story anyhow."
So the Harvard resveratrol researcher knew his own compound was a fraud, so he took Longevinex instead.
this guy is making up all sorts of stuff about lectins
In our Q&A session at the Ancestral Health Symposium, he talked about noticing many of his patients with with auto-immune disease and elevated inflammatory markers and when he started looking at the literature he said he found some fascinating studies, and specifically mentioned adiponectin and dementia. Of course, he didn’t specify these studies because this was a Q&A session, but I am aware of this study, http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3512190/
And his presentation at the Symposium cited a number of studies to back up each of his dietary recommendations.
So making stuff up? If you say so, but my inflammation markers have gone down, George’s inflammation markers have gone done and his congestion has gone down and Rheumatoid Arthritis is gone. Our friend’s son who was diagnosed with Chrohn’s disease (bowel inflammation) as a youngster and couldn’t keep weight on and felt poorly is now off drugs and a healthy, active 17 year old on the wrestling team. Another friend with Hashimoto’s (another inflammatory condition) reversed her condition.
We all have to make our own decisions, but when Dr Gundry decided to change the course of his career from cardiothoracic surgery to restorative medicine 15 years ago, he sought out ApoE4s because of their increased susceptibility to accelerated atherosclerosis. As he cited at the end of his presentation at the Ancestral Health Symposium on dietary recommendations for ApoE4s,
“Using this protocol we have successfully minimized the deleterious effects of this ancestral gene in thousands of patients followed for up to 15 years, with many ApoE4/4s successfully aging into their mid to late eighties. Our current oldest one turned 87 a couple months ago and 26:51 numerous ApoE 3/4s now entering their nineties.”
If there is another doctor in this country who can make a similar claim, I would like to know, maybe we’ll start following him instead.
