Christopher Shade, PhD, founder and CEO of Quicksilver Scientific, continues to be the driving force of development and innovation. Dr. Shade’s vast depth and breadth of knowledge, passion for healing, and intuitive understanding of chemistry and biology are reflected in Quicksilver Scientific’s well-designed detoxification protocols, unique supplement delivery systems, and patented mercury speciation test.
Dr. Shade is a recognized expert on mercury and liposomal delivery systems. He has lectured and trained doctors in the U.S. and internationally on the subject of mercury, heavy metals, and the human detoxification system. Dr. Shade's current focus is on the development of cutting-edge, lipid-based delivery systems for nutraceuticals, such as liposomes and micro-emulsion systems, to address the growing need of high quality, affordable detoxification solutions.
Cumulative research in the area of longevity points to a handful of key biochemical pathways that impact healthy aging as well as the targeted plant compounds and nutraceuticals that can positively influence these pathways. In part 1 of our 4 part longevity series, Dr. Shade of Quicksilver Scientific will introduce the Longevity Wheel, a model for supplementing core mechanisms in the body for age optimization.WATCH NOW
In part 2 of our 4 part longevity series, Dr. Shade explains the mechanisms and effects of AMPK and Nrf2 activation for increasing metabolic efficiency, immune integrity, detoxification and chemoprotection, and the use of lifestyle methods and compounds that upregulate both.WATCH NOW
In Part 3 of our 4 part longevity series, Dr. Shade discusses the role of NAD+ in powering cellular metabolism, and mitochondrial health. He ties in the mechanisms and effects of sirtuin activation to further encode regenerative programs that positively influence mitochondrial efficiency and number, metabolic health, DNA integrity, and aging. He’ll conclude with a discussion on lifestyle and compounds for increasing NAD+ and sirtuin activity.WATCH NOW
In the final lecture of our 4 part longevity series, Dr. Shade explains the effects of telomere attrition on mitochondrial health and aging, the effects of attrition-driven cellular senescence to increase global inflammation and accelerate aging, and the use of compounds that modify telomere health and cellular senescence. He concludes with a discussion around the significant contribution of the neuroendocrine system to mitochondrial health and longevity, the effects of neuroendocrine system dysfunction on aging pathologies and rates of aging, and compounds that support neuroendocrine health.WATCH NOW
