It might seem extreme, but every day (am, lunch, pm), I take over 75 different medications and supplements as part of my daily regimen to boost longevity and healthspan.

You’re probably wondering why anyone would take so many pills. How do you select what to take, and do they work?

This is a blog about what I take, and why I take them.

In 2013, in the prestigious journal Cell, scientists identified what they called the “9 Hallmarks of Aging,” basically a working hypothesis on the underlying causes of aging (on a molecular and cellular basis). Note: The list has since been expanded to 12 hallmarks.

My meds & supplement routine is built around addressing as many of these as possible. The 12 hallmarks include: Genomic Instability, Telomere Attrition, Epigenetic Alterations, Loss of Proteostasis, Deregulated Nutrient-Sensing, Mitochondrial Dysfunction, Cellular Senescence, Stem Cell Exhaustion, Altered Intercellular Communication, Disabled Macroautophagy, Chronic Inflammation, and Dysbiosis... and more on these later.

(Note: Any medication and supplement routine you adopt should be done under a doctor’s care... Find a great longevity/functional medicine MD to help you out.)

Rapamycin: King of Anti-Aging Meds

There’s a difference between meds & supplements... meds require a prescription and are typically more consequential with downsides as well as upsides. There is one such medicine I take under the guidance of my Fountain Life Medical Team called rapamycin, and in my opinion, it is likely to be the most impactful longevity med at this time. (Note: the clinical trials in humans are just beginning to prove this out.)

Let’s talk about rapamycin. Discovered in the soils of Easter Island and originally used as an immunosuppressant, this compound now stars in the lineup of longevity enhancers for its fascinating properties. It works by inhibiting mTOR, a crucial protein that governs cell growth and proliferation. But for those of us chasing the fountain of youth, rapamycin's real appeal might lie in its ability to tweak our cellular cleanup processes and metabolism.

Every Sunday night, my ritual includes a 6-milligram dose of rapamycin, taken weekly for a 3 month stretch, followed by 1 month off. Repeat. The goal? To modulate my immune system in a way that supports my body's age-fighting mechanisms. There are a multitude of longevity related meds/supplements (discussed below). Out of all of them, rapamycin is the one longevity-related intervention in my arsenal that seems to have the most concrete evidence backing its benefits. Here’s some of the data.

In 2009, Nature published a groundbreaking study showing rapamycin increased mouse lifespans by 14% for females and 9% for males. Fast forward to 2014, and Science reported that it actually enhanced immune responses in humans, prompting a 20% greater response to flu vaccines. This finding shattered the misconception that rapamycin weakened the immune system.


More recently, a 2023 Geroscience study surveyed 504 adults, revealing that 65.5% of the 333 people taking rapamycin believed in its anti-aging effects. Nearly half reported improved health, with over 35% saying their brain "works better" and 38% feeling younger.


Dr. Matt Kaeberlein, a professor at the University of Washington, has been researching rapamycin for 20 years and found that a three-month course of rapamycin increased remaining life expectancy in middle-aged lab mice by up to 60%. As he puts it:


"I would say that rapamycin is the current best-in-class for a longevity drug that we have."


As mentioned above, there are several human clinical trials currently exploring the potential of rapamycin as a longevity medicine, showing promising early results. One notable trial is the Participatory Evaluation (of) Aging (with) Rapamycin (for) Longevity Study (PEARL). This large-scale, placebo-controlled study is being conducted to assess the effects of rapamycin on aging in humans. The PEARL study involves 200 participants aged 50 and older, who will receive rapamycin for up to one year.  

This fall at my Platinum Longevity Trip, we’ll do a deep dive into rapamycin and the other leading longevity meds and supplements. It’s my chance to learn the latest on what is scientifically proven to work.

My Full Meds and Supplements Protocol

Before I dive into the list of what I’m taking, a quick reminder and summary of the 12 hallmarks of aging...

12 Hallmarks of Aging

There were 9 original hallmarks of aging, based on a 2013 article in the journal Cell. That list has now expanded to include 3 more. Here they are:

  1. Genomic Instability: Environmental and cellular processes damage genes over time, accelerating aging through increased radiation and free radicals.
  1. Telomere Attrition: Chromosomal end-caps, telomeres, shorten during DNA replication, leading to cell division cessation and disease.
  1. Epigenetic Alterations: Environmental factors alter gene expression over time, affecting how DNA sequences are read and implemented.
  1. Loss of Proteostasis: Proteins misfold and malfunction over time, causing diseases including cancer and neurological disorders.
  1. Deregulated Nutrient-Sensing: Changes in body nutrient levels affect metabolic pathways, impacting longevity-related proteins like IGF-1 and mTOR.
  1. Mitochondrial Dysfunction: Mitochondrial performance declines with age, causing fatigue and chronic illness symptoms.
  1. Cellular Senescence: Aging cells stop dividing and accumulate, causing increased inflammation and tissue dysfunction.
  1. Stem Cell Exhaustion: Aging significantly reduces stem cell counts and quality, impairing body repair and renovation.
  1. Altered Intercellular Communication: Aging disrupts cellular communication mechanisms, decreasing information transmission between cells.
  1. Disabled Macroautophagy: Impaired autophagy prevents normal cell cleaning processes, leading to toxin buildup and cellular dysfunction.
  1. Chronic Inflammation: Persistent inflammation with aging contributes to various age-related diseases by continuously damaging tissues.
  2. Dysbiosis: Imbalances in microbial communities, particularly in the gut, affect metabolic and immune functions, impacting health.


My Longevity-Related Meds & Supplements 

Quick Note on Testing: I do a lot of testing to continuously fine tune what I’m taking. As part of my Fountain Life protocol, that testing is occurring on at least a quarterly basis. My meds and supplements are then modified accordingly.


Viome Testing & Supplements: Another important note and experiment I’m about to try. I just completed my Viome testing, and part of Viome’s offerings include customized supplements specifically tied to your gut and blood transcriptome. My plan in the second half of this year is to try a switch over to Viome’s prescribed supplements and measure myself again during the next quarter.


Here is a list of the meds and supplements I take each day to help extend my longevity and healthspan, organized loosely around several of the hallmarks of aging. 




Stamets-7: A unique blend of seven medicinal mushrooms, including Reishi, Lion’s Mane, and Cordyceps, that work synergistically to support immune function, cognitive health, and energy levels. This supplement also promotes resilience against stress and inflammation, contributing to overall vitality and well-being.

I rely on the VIOME Full Body Intelligence Test and Precision Supplements to keep me healthy.

Viome has completely changed my approach to eating and taking my supplements. Viome tells me exactly what foods I should be avoiding or eating based on my test results. I no longer have to think about what supplements I should be taking because they custom make the supplements with the nutrients I need and with the dosage I need. 

The results have been stellar—I sleep better, have more energy, and no longer experience digestive issues. 

Viome’s groundbreaking research paper in iScience blew me away with its ability to measure biological markers of aging using 1 million samples. Their paper in the American Journal of Lifestyle showed over 30% improvements in diabetes, weight loss, depression, IBS, and anxiety, proving the effectiveness of their precision approach.

I highly recommend Viome to everyone for their health and longevity.
