Will you still need
me, will you still feed me, when I'm 104?
You may recognize that question as a slight rewording
(or rather, renumbering) from the Beatles song "When I'm
The original lyric, written by
Paul McCartney, was recorded when he was 24 –
four decades shy of 64. When Paul turned 64 a few years
ago, I wonder if he looked ahead another four decades
and pondered what life might be like at 104.
Safe to say, most of us don't expect to celebrate many
birthdays beyond ten decades. But when researchers
recently conducted a trial restricted to subjects over
the age of 100, they found surprising results that are
enlightening for Paul and anyone else who's interested
in maintaining good health into advanced age.
In addition to the question "Will you still feed me?" we
might also ask, "What will you feed me?"
If the answer includes plenty of meat, chicken, fish,
and dairy products, then the body will be getting the
raw materials it needs to increase levels of L-carnitine,
a key amino acid.
In previous e-Alerts I've told you about the importance
of L-carnitine, which is responsible for a number of
omega-3 fatty acids to cell mitochondria
protect cells from damage – especially heart cells
levels of enzymes needed to metabolize carbohydrates
maintain muscle strength
But there are two problems associated with L-carnitine:
1) The body only absorbs about a quarter of the L-carnitine
supplied by food, and 2) The body produces less L-carnitine
as we age.
Over the long term, that aging attrition creates
In a recent issue of the
American Journal of Clinical Nutrition,
researchers at the University of
Italy reported on a study in which they examined
the effects of L-carnitine supplementation on 66
subjects. And as I mentioned above, each subject was at
least 100 years old. In addition, all the subjects
experienced fatigue after slight physical activity.
Subjects were divided into two groups to receive either
two grams of L-carnitine daily or a placebo for six
At the end of the intervention, tests revealed five
fatigue after exercise was significantly less in the
fatigue was significantly less in the L-carnitine
30-point test to assess cognitive sharpness,
subjects in the L-carnitine group scored more than
four points higher on average than subjects in the
muscle mass was significantly higher in the L-carnitine
mass was significantly lower in the L-carnitine
Elderly people are not the only ones who might benefit
from L-carnitine supplementation.
In the e-Alert "Need a Lift?" (1/29/07), I told you
about a study that examined the effects of several
different dosage levels of L-carnitine on cancer
patients who experienced moderate to severe fatigue.
Overall, fatigue and depression decreased considerably
in subjects who took L-carnitine, while sleep problems
were also alleviated. The most pronounced results were
found among subjects who received the highest doses –
three grams per day. Even at these higher doses, the
supplements were well tolerated.
Note: Leading natural health authority Jon
Barron recommends using L-carnatine to help reverse and
retard aging - along with L-carnosine and DMAE and, to a
lesser extent, other key supplements. To find out
