A definitive guide to NAD+, NMN and autophagy with Dr. Elena Seranova – Part 1 

Welcome to Part 1 of the podcast series with Dr. Seranova, PhD. in Stem Cell Biology and Autophagy! In this first episode, we discuss NAD+, sirtuins (there are seven of them), factors that negatively impact on our body’s NAD+ levels as we age and NAD+ pathways.

Michael Lustgarten PhD. Scientist with a plan to conquer aging; how rigorous biomarker tracking can help us live longer

Dr. Lustgarten is a scientist at Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging at Tufts University with a mission to conquer aging through rigorous tracking of biomarkers. His Youtube videos, in which Dr. Lustgarten crunches scientific data in formats easily digestible by everyone and also provides his own biomarkers, are super educational and have inspired me personally in many ways. In our interview, we discuss his Youtube videos, his book Microbial Burden, his cutting-edge research on microbiome’s impacts on aging and much more!
