David sin Claire he’s the written one of the most knowledgeable PhD researcher in in anti-aging and sir tunes and resveratrol but he at one of his videos he was touting the anti-aging properties of Foreman and he takes 1000 milligrams at night before he goes to bed David Sinclair the PhD that researches anti-aging in a particular sirtuins and mTOR how they relate now back to war Dean Ward believe that everybody should start on about 500 milligrams at least twice a day ward currently does but when two years ago three years ago was doing five hundred milligrams three times a day but now he’s doing a thousand milligrams twice so Ward recommends everybody started on 500 milligrams at three times a day now what is the number one side effect of metformin diarrhea about 20% of people can’t tolerate and I’m one of those I’ll get serious diarrhea so to get around that both dr.

Jeffrey – a real good friend of mine who’s written extensively about the benefits of MIT and Lord Dean who’s been around forever and he’s gay it gave a great talk this google searching you’ll find it it’s very very important now there was a lot of people who think that oh that metformin cause lactic acidosis no that’s old research from fan forum fan PhD and fan foreman came up before metformin and that did cause some lactic acid but metformin doesn’t have that track record that fan for me although you do have to be careful on that people who have poor kidney function we had to be careful with them Bob I truly think that the benefits greatly outweigh the risks or metformin now there was an article that came out not too long ago I think we discussed it on your podcasts regarding metformin in older men and it may interfere with some muscle accretion you know we’re talking about humor that your mom oh maybe older men shouldn’t take that out I found that study a study came out about three years ago and the dose metformin they were using seventeen hundred milligrams a day I don’t know where they got that dose that’s what the dose they use seventeen hundred milligrams per day well you gotta weigh the risks and benefits you know I mean performing is such a great medicinal for anti-aging and brain function and resetting insulin resistance and may affect doctor Dean in his opinion it he says sensitivities not to just insulin but every hormone so therefore you have a possibility of some men who who get maybe a tolerance to testosterone so they’re on it forever going to war Dean you can reset a person’s sensitivity to testosterone by putting them on met form so if I’m an older guy and I’m in the gym and I’m trying to train hard and don’t get some gains there are some studies that’s great at seventeen hundred milligrams a day or more you may interfere with some a muscle accretion but I’m firmly believe from my own experiences that a man is on testosterone therapy you know in trains right it’s test awesome styled in I still think that the benefits of muscle accretion are going to be there and given the other multitude of benefits I would err on the side of I rather live oh I don’t know just pull us on my huh let’s say I rather live long 10 feet in years longer with maybe a modicum less of muscle of creation and die early doo doo cancer in particular and because I was worried about I wasn’t gonna get that last few percent gains in the gym due to my efforts so you got a read you got a read up on he missed some great sources dr.
David Sinclair PhD dr. Jeffery – the ACH MD and dr. Ward e md research these people you know find you make your own decision but I’m Pro metformin so given by the fact that I have this owl disturbance I take it in the evening only taking the evening and right now I’m only taking 500 milligrams a day and then I’ll stand up to 750 and then hopefully as young maybe 2,000 milligrams a day in one dose at night Agatha Davis say Claire does and this guy is the anti-aging guru in Belgium we have 850 milligram tablets I take two of them daily morning and evening so that’s your 1,700 there ah well maybe where it came from I don’t know you had here in stage we here use these 500 but I will say one thing with Warren teen business in Florida here where I resigned if you recommend or write a prescription for a patient and get that metformin filled in the pharmacy or free so if you can write metformin and they can tolerate it I recommend that if patient can recommend it and you have to reckon you have to make and form an extended-release and then they had to pay out of pocket pay for that the pharmacy won’t felt extended-release only the regular metformin but I think it’s a miracle drug every – told me that you could put diet meaning nutrition and exercise in pill form that pill would be met form completely about that Thanks now do this next click on one of these thumbnails to learn a ton more about trt and hormone optimization [Music]
