Berberine seems to be a good OTC alternative to metformin, although taking care about pharmacological interactions.

Don't worry we all die sooner or later. It's perfectly natural

What if awareness (you) are eternal and the body and world are just a play of forms existing purely for the experience of limitation and evolution?

I mean it's quite apparent at this point that death and decay (change) is a structurally inherent to the universe. Another word for change is time.
  4d
The logical conclusion therefore is that if one wishes for an end to death/change one must leave this universe

In meditation one can realize this

Desperately chasing life extension is one of the silliest human desires rooted in nothing but ego and complete lack of self-awareness.

Also rooted in money worship and thinking it can solve all your problems/inherently provides happiness and safety

Those who believe death is inevitable and ought to be accepted remind me of bitcoiners who claim the coin is inherently unscalable and 1MB blocks to be our lot in life, not to be questioned.

Have you heard about "entropy"?
  4d
@TheLegendaryTwatter, of course people have heard of entropy. The trick is repairing damage and wear in tear. It's impossible to do fully with the human body as of now.

No amount of resources right now will keep you in a healthy 20-25 year old body, irrespective of inevitable death. That's the problem.

Ponder the number of idiots currently existing (~6Bn). Imagine them living forever. :D

Healthspan=/Lifespan. The idea, at least for me is that people should be able to live healthier longer. You may still die at 100, but those 100 years will be healthy years.

Although, this admittedly becomes tricky with organ replacement, as it could in theory seriously extend your lifespan. The brain however is the absolute limit.
  4d
You can give anyone a new heart or kidney. You can't give them a new brain.

What's your take on baby-blood transfusions? XD
  4d
Ridiculous. Baby blood can't really do anything that i am aware of you help you slow or prevent aging. Developments in stem cell research and telomeres are more practical.

The only thing I've heard of is that DNA from when YOU were younger could help repair your older DNA. So you'd essentially need a DNA sample from when you were 20 to account for lost data.

But at face value without more information it just sounds like crazy virgin sacrifice bullshit.

I found this interesting (The myth of antioxidants): https://www.ucl.ac.uk/~ucbtdag/Wenner_2013.pdf

Now many foods have added vitamins, antioxidants... May we be reducing the natural response of our body against oxidative stress?
