BASIS by Elysium Health for Anti-Aging?

Published

on

A bottle fell from the counter, and I automatically reached down to grab it. That was the first result I noticed since starting BASIS.

Three years ago I started taking an relatively expensive supplement called BASIS by Elysium health. BASIS contains nicotinamide riboside and pterostilbene, and I’ve noticed some subtle improvements over the years, making it well worth the cost.

Anti-aging research starts from the proposition that aging should be treated like any other medical or scientific problem. Researchers look at processes that break down as time moves on. NAD+ levels decline with aging. Nicotinamide riboside boosts levels of NAD+ in your body. Because NAD+ levels decline with age, and the thinking goes, boosting NAD+ levels will mitigate some aspects of aging.

Some studies on NAD+ are promising:

What I’ve noticed using BASIS.

When you read most reviews of BASIS, you’ll see the reviewer talk about grey hairs. I went grey in my late 20s, and there aren’t any changes on that front, but my reflexes improved.

My reflexes improved noticeably, which is why I ordered a multi-year subscription to BASIS. Your reflexes / reaction time peaks at 24 years of age. Punching power stays with you the longest, reflexes leave quickly.

It’s hard to explain how my reflexes have improved other to say when I drop something, I’m able to watch it move as if my vision has a high speed camera lens, and am more capable of grabbing the item before it hits the ground. I’m also able to focus more intensely on small details like the branches of trees or leaves of grass.

My blood pressure is also in the super healthy range, despite my life being high stress. Although I can’t attribute my healthy blood pressure to BASIS, others have said it helps with their blood pressure.

These changes are subtle, and because BASIS is pricey, it’s not considered a magic pill. Unless you’re already exercising regularly, you may not notice any changes. (You may still receive some benefits.)

Additional reading on BASIS:

LongeCity has a 1,800+ post discussion on nicotinamide riboside.

Elysium Health (which sells BASIS, so buyer beware) shares some information here.

Do I recommend BASIS?

I don’t have any relationship with BASIS, and if you buy their stuff, I won’t make any money.

But it’s a product I’ve used for years, and believe in.

Is it an immediate game-changer like GABA or N-A-C? No.

Will you notice a “buzz” like when you take a pre-workout? No.

Will it potentially help improve reflexes, and maybe even help heal the brain of someone who has been hit in the head a few times? Yes.

BASIS works for me, and a lot of people buy the pills separately on Amazon or Whole Foods or GNC. BASIS contains 250 mg of nicotinamide riboside an 50 mg of pterostilbene. Reputable companies like Jarrow sell those, and it’s much less expensive to buy them ala carte.

Because it’s an expensive product, I’d put BASIS a few items down the to-do list. Lift weights, eat or drink greens, do Wim Hof Breathing, take cold showers / baths…and then consider an exotic product like BASIS.

The most powerful supplement I’ve used is Gorilla Mind.

The Truth about Hydroxychloroquine and Coronavirus

Published

on

Trump is recommending people look into using chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine to treat coronavirus. Trump is not a doctor. Chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine are not approved by the FDA for treatment of coronavirus.

Most doctors are using chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine off label for coronavirus treatment, some are using it prophylactically to protect themselves.

OFF LABEL USE is what is missing from media coverage on Trump and hydroxychloroquine. Reporters either don’t know what off label use is, or they are pretending not to know because ORANGE MAN BAD.

Here is what the FDA says in its guide on the off label use of drugs:

From the FDA perspective, once the FDA approves a drug, healthcare providers generally may prescribe the drug for an unapproved use when they judge that it is medically appropriate for their patient.

If you read any article about chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine, and the article omits OFF LABEL USE, then you are being hoaxed by the media.

P.S. The man in Arizona who died from using chloroquine did not obtain chloroquine from a doctor. He used fish tank cleaner. (Yes, really.)

The couple unfortunately equated the chloroquine phosphate in their fish treatment with the medication —known as hydroxychloroquine — that has recently been touted as a possible treatment for COVID-19, which has infected more than 42,000 people in the U.S. and killed at least 462.

Reports that the man died after “listening to Trump’s advice” are dishonest.

The Arizona man’s wife is also a Democrat donor.

Wanda donated to the PAC 314 Action Fund, which has called itself the “pro-science resistance” to the White House.

Additionally, Fox News has reviewed a Facebook page apparently belonging to Wanda, which was first identified by the Twitter user Techno Fog. “Your psycho prez is in [t]own, are you going to see him?” Wanda wrote on Facebook on Feb. 19, by way of wishing a friend a happy birthday. Trump was in town at a rally in Phoenix, Ariz., on that day.

She administered the chloroquine to her husband. This wife was the only person who hates Trump who listened to Trump, by giving her husband chloroquine-based fish tank cleaner.

Nothing suspicious about that at all.

P.P.S. If you like this post, you’ll love Hoaxed Movie. Watch it here today.

Is “Kung Flu” the latest Media Hoax?

Published

on

Several White House reporters confronted Trump regarding his decision to call the coronavirus (or COVID-19) the China Virus.  One reporter asked him about a White House administration official who is alleged to have called the coronavirus Kung Flu.

When the reporter was asked the name of the official, the reporter said she didn’t know.

The original claim regarding Kung Flu comes from CBS reporter Weijia Jiang. On March 17th, she Tweeted:

This morning a White House official referred to #Coronavirus as the “Kung-Flu” to my face. Makes me wonder what they’re calling it behind my back.

Ms. Jiang has not identified the official.

One reason could be because this official does not even exist.

Under American defamation law, you can lie all you like.

You can’t lie about a person by name.

If no White House official called the coronavirus Kung Flu, or if there is some important context missing, then Jiang could be sued.

You can watch the Kung Flu exchange in this video here:

The Stafford Act Text Message Announcing an Emergency Quarantine is a Hoax

Published

on

By now you or someone you know has received a hoax text announcing martial law. With some minor variations, the texts all read the same:

  • In 48 to 72 hours the president will evoke what is called the Stafford act. Just got off the phone with some of my military friends in DC who just got out of a two hour briefing. The president will order a two week mandatory quarantine for the nation. Stock up on whatever you guys need to make sure you have a two week supply of everything. Please forward.

 

The National Security Council issued a rare public statement warning the public that the Stafford act text was a hoax.

How can you tell the Stafford Act Text is a Hoax?

Even if you refuse to accept the NSC’s word on the matter, the text message has some telltale signs of a hoax.

First, the text promises secret insider knowledge. “Just got off the phone with some of my military friends in DC who just got out of a two hour briefing.” This is a vague enough proclamation that it sounds plausible.

Second, no specifics of these friends are given. Who are these friends? Why did they call this specific person?

Third, the hoaxers ask you to spread the message. Why would anyone acting in good faith want to incite a panic?

If an emergency quarantine were able to be declared, the plan would be Top Secret. No one’s friends would just get out of a briefing and start alerting people. THEY WOULD GO TO PRISON FOR LEAKING CLASSIFIED INFORMATION.

If such an emergency plan were in the works and higher command wanted the story to get out, they’d leak it to a credible outlet. Not share chain-letter style text messages.

There’s also tradecraft involved in sharing classified information.

None of the telltale signs (and no I won’t share how to leak classified secrets here) were present in that alert.

UPDATE: Other outlets are now reporting that the Stafford Act text is a foreign disinformation campaign:

The Trump administration is alleging that a foreign disinformation campaign is underway aimed at spreading fear in the country amid the coronavirus pandemic, three U.S. officials said Monday. On Sunday, federal officials began confronting what they said was a deliberate effort by a foreign entity to sow fears of a nationwide quarantine amid the virus outbreak.

Agencies took coordinated action Sunday evening to deny that any such plans were put in place, as they tried to calm a nation already on edge by disruptions to daily life caused by the virus.
