If you could stop aging and possibly reverse it, would you?


To grow old is widely accepted as normal, we have seen our parents and grandparents grow old, so we assumed that was the natural order of things, but new research is forcing us to look at aging as a disease that needs treatment. Before you get all defensive about the natural order of things, I would like to introduce you to my guest on this episode of Growth Island Dr. Nichola Conlon. 


Dr. Conlon has a PhD in molecular biology at the Epithelial Research Group at Newcastle University, she is the founder of Nuchido a supplement company with the aim to translate the latest scientific advances in ageing research into consumer products that slow, and even reverse, the signs and processes of ageing.


Over recent years, rejuvenation has been scientifically proven, but the pace of these discoveries is far ahead of public awareness. Nuchido’s mission is to bring to market science-based anti-ageing products that really work. Their products focus on promoting 'healthspan'​ - the proportion of a person's life that is lived in good health.
