Rapamycin, Autophagy, and the Future of Anti-Aging with Dr. Ross Pelton

You’ve been told to eat a balanced diet and exercise regularly for optimal health and longevity.

But what if I told you there’s much more to it than that? 

In this episode of The Jay Campbell Show, Dr. Ross Pelton discusses the powerful effects of rapamycin, a natural substance that has been shown to extend lifespan by up to 60%. Rapamycin works by partially inhibiting an enzyme called mTOR, which activates a process called autophagy, responsible for detoxification and cellular renewal. 

Dr. Pelton emphasizes that the modern diet is leading to an imbalance of mTOR and autophagy in the vast majority of people.

He highlights the importance of proper nutrition, regular fasting, and maintaining a healthy gut microbiome if you’re looking to not only optimize your current well-being, but also set yourself up for a long, healthy, youthful existence.

To learn more about the fascinating world of rapamycin, autophagy, gut health, and other strategies for extending your healthspan, give this episode a listen.

“Taking rapamycin can significantly slow down biological aging and increase your health span. It’s safer than Tylenol and ibuprofen and should be just as accessible to consumers.”
– Dr. Ross Pelton
