Nichola Conlon: Molecular biologist


The body’s unique ability to repair itself, with a little outside help, is the focus of a growing sphere of longevity science. One area of research concerns a molecule, known as nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+), which plays a key role in many biological processes.  NAD+ declines as we age, but research has shown that, through supplementation,  youthful levels can be restored, helping us to age better.   In this episode, Dr Nichola Conlon, a molecular biologist and co-founder of Nuchido Laboratories, based in North East England, discusses her mission to develop nutraceuticals to stimulate rejuvenation. In conversation with Peter Bowes, Nichola explains her passion for nutritional interventions designed to enhance healthspan; she addresses the need to educate people about the relevance of biogerontology research and the new products that could significantly improve our quality of life.

David Katz: Physician and writer

If the coronavirus pandemic has reminded us of anything, it is that there is nothing more important than our health and wellbeing.  With a vaccine on the horizon, there is now real hope that the disease will be brought under control during the first part of next year. "People in robust good health are massively less vulnerable to bad outcomes during the pandemic and more vital in general," says Dr. David Katz, a physician and co-author of the new book, How to Eat. Highlighting the importance of lifestyles and nutritional interventions, to promote health and vitality, Dr Katz says, there is much to be done tackling the "neglected scourges” of modern living, as we move on from the pandemic. A renowned public health commentator and prolific writer, Dr Katz serves on the Scientific Advisory Board of Amazentis, a Swiss life science company and co-producer of this LLAMA podcast episode. In this interview, with Peter Bowes, he analyzes the current state of Covid-19; the challenge of sorting fact from fiction; the prospect of “herd immunity” and life after the virus. He also delves into the infinitely fascinating world of the microbiome and nutritional products that promote enhanced muscle mass and function as we age.
