American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine - Report from the show.

I will update this post later with details. A last minute opportunity arose to attend A4M courtesy of GeroNova Research this past Sat/Sun/Mon. It was a real blast and quite an educational opportunity. A huge thank-you to the GeroNova folks for the invite.

I will share lots of good stuff, so be sure to check back. Oh yeah - stabilized, time-release r-lipoic was a huge hit with the physicians, we sold out of nearly all the product we brought with us and wrote a lot of orders every day.


The show was well attended and quite busy, we were kept hopping pretty much the whole time. Lots of gadgets being offered for sale, as well as supplements, cosmeceuticals (many fortified with spin traps such as PBN and NtBHA), foods, drinks, massage chairs and other fun stuff.

While I didn't have time to attend the presentations, I was able to chat with a number of physicians, most of whom specialized in anti-aging medicine. It was interesting to bounce ideas off them regarding supplementation programs, and I was pleased to see my present list of supplements usually matched what they themselves were using.

It was generally agreed that you cannot take too much high-quality fish oil. Seemed to be reinforced as the foundation for any intelligently crafted supplementation program.

Dr. Ron Rothenberg is a pioneer and highly respected anti-aging specialist and spent nearly an hour chatting with us at the booth. I was able to pepper him with questions, and he cheerfully offered his thoughts.

HgH therapy was a huge topic, and let me say there is also a great deal of controversy on it's use. Personally, I wouldn't touch the injectable stuff until more is known.
