What’s Long Long Life?

Long Long Life is a company, a website, and the story of crazy people who no longer want to die. It all stemmed from the obvious fact that today, more and more researchers believe that aging can be slowed down, and even stopped, through a the right lifestyle choices, the right treatments and new therapies that are currently being developped. Long Long Life was created to take part in this research, to bring innovative tools for science and to inform the public about the upcoming anti-aging revolution.

Our information website aims to assess the potential of new discoveries to increase life expectancy, to understand the risks it entails and to make an informed decision regarding the many anti-aging molecules available, to start the fight against aging!

Long Long Life does not sell any of these products. We believe this to be the price of freedom.

Since we have no financial interest in this, we can tell you the whole truth on the treatments being developped to fight against aging, and give you the best information possible.

Which is the right anti-aging molecule for you?

When it comes to picking a treatment or a supplement to help you age gracefully, it can be tricky to make a choice. Beyond the full description of each of the molecules on our site, we created a summary to make the list more accessible.

What are they taking?

Throughout history, as humans, we have always been influenced and guided by people passionate about their cause. Today, in life extension, many influent people already test on themselves the molecules at the heart of anti-aging research.

Ray Kurzweil is a US engineer and researcher, specilized in IT and nanotechnology. Today, he is a professor at the prestigious MIT, and develops voice recognition tools while writing about different themes, from health to futurology and artificial intelligence. He is an avid champion of anti-aging research, and he is among the first few to set up his own treatment plan to fight against aging.

David Sinclair is a scientist and Harvard professor at the genetics department. He co-direct the Paul F. Glenn center, which researches the biology of aging. He is well-known for his understanding of the aging process and its causes, as well as for his discovery of the use of resveratrol and sirtuin regulation. He co-founded several biotechnology companies and the science journal “Aging”. He won about thirty prizes and distinctions, and is very implicated in the fight against aging.

Guilhem Velvé Casquillas is a former researcher in physics and cellular biology, and keen entrepreneur. He is the CEO of ELVESYS and the NBIC Valley in Paris, which is both a research laboratory and an incubator for innovative startups. He also founded Long Long Life and very implicated in the fight against aging.

Recommended dosage

Optimal form

Ideal time of absorption & adjuvants

Resveratrol

250-500 mg / day
Caution: acquire trans-resveratrol instead of cis-resveratrol, which is less potent and more difficult to metabolize.

At meal times, preferably in the evening. Prefer micronised forms to maximize absorption.

Metformin

500-850 mg / day

At meal times, near the end of the meal.

Policosanol

10-20 mg / day

Morning and lunch time, meal times, in two doses from 5 to 10mg.

Vitamin D

400-1000 UI / day
amounts to 3g/day of cod liver oil

At meal times, preferably in the morning.

IP6

500 mg - 4 g / day

On an empty stomach, in the morning.

Spermidin

Amino-acid precursor (L-Arginin) 5 - 15 g / day
No equivalent in drug form as of now

At meal times, three times a day. Do not exceed 10g each time.

Coenzyme Q10

60 - 150 mg / day

At meal times, with a spoonful of oil or some butter (mandatory for good absorption). For topical use, apply in the evening.

NAD+

Precursor (Nicotinamide or Niacine) 250-500 mg / day for nicotinamide, 500 mg - 2g for niacine

There is no optimal time to take this supplement. Caution: never go over 2g a day.

Rapamycin

Not tested in humans

Not tested in humans.

Curcumin

400-800 mg / day

Must be taken along with piperin (black pepper) or phosphatidylcholine: without an adjuvant, curcumin will not be absorbed. There is no optimal time to take this supplement.

Aspirine

60-100 mg / day

At meal times, to avoid gastric issues.

Citrulline

Recommended dosage : 3g/day, possible dosage up to 10g/day

There is no optimal time to take this supplement. Dilute the powder in a liquid. Prefer L-citrullin with no additives.

EGCG

1-3 g / day

In the morning if you take it with tea, up until 4pm. There is no optimal time to take the pill version of EGCG. Avoid combining it wit aspirin.
