Publisher Comments:

"Brilliant and lucid . . . cutting-edge."

–Nicholas Perricone, M.D.

Here is a medically proven breakthrough 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. The powerful message at the heart of The Anti-Aging Solution is that all of us grow older, but that aging is a choice. This is a medically proven fact–supported by dozens of peer-reviewed studies–at the foundation of the revolutionary five-step anti-aging program described in this groundbreaking book.

Scientists such as Ronald Pero, the coauthor of The Anti-Aging Solution, are making remarkable discoveries in their research as they chart the complex interplay of environment and genes in the aging process. As we grow older, the genetic material in our bodies’ 100 trillion cells gets damaged, leading to such familiar signs of aging as sagging skin, aching joints, age spots, memory problems, and a weakened immune system. Science has identified the subtle effects of stress, nutrition, lifestyle, and other factors on our cells’ proteins and DNA. Out of this research has come the discovery that cell damage is reparable and that the infirmities associated with aging can be avoided or reversed–not with expensive drugs or high-tech interventions, but by eating right, getting the right supplements, getting enough exercise, and reducing stress.

Written by an all-star team of internationally acclaimed anti-aging experts, The Anti-Aging Solution is the first guide to reversing aging on a genetic level while ramping up your body’s self-repair capabilities. Based on thirty years of cutting-edge scientific research and twenty years of clinical practice, it delivers a simple five-step program that really works.

By following this uniquely effective program, which includes simple stress reduction techniques, easy-to-follow dietary guidelines, moderate exercise, inexpensive skin treatments, and supplements (including a breakthrough herbal derivative), you can reverse DNA damage, enhance DNA repair, and start to look younger, feel younger, and be younger right away. By following the powerful prescriptions described in The Anti-Aging Solution you can say goodbye to age-related infirmities and retain the health, beauty, and vitality of youth for longer than you ever dreamed.
