    When Jatin Chaudhary set his sights on climbing the world's highest mountain, he knew he had to optimize his body's ability to operate in extreme conditions. The 43-year-old software development manager from India was aware that his chances of scaling Mt. Everest were diminishing every year and that he would benefit from the physical endurance abilities of a younger man. He dived into the data and investigated why Sherpas can perform at superhuman levels at altitude. He concluded that it was their ability to efficiently use oxygen in their mitochondria, while in a hypoxic environment, such as the heights of Everest where there is less oxygen in the air. It led Jatin to learn more about the gut metabolite Urolithin A (UA) and its role in maintaining healthy mitochondria. 

    In this LLAMA podcast interview he explains why he believes supplementation with Mitopure, a proprietary highly pure form of UA, helped fuel his body to scale the highest peak on earth. He also discusses the wider benefits, for an aging population, of maximal mitochondrial health.

    This episode is produced in association with the Swiss life science company, Amazentis, which is pioneering cutting edge, clinically validated cellular - nutrition, under its Timeline brand.

    Do you want to live forever? Or do you prefer to focus on living for as long as possible while enjoying the best of health? Lifetime aspirations come in many forms and are often merged together - or confused - under the banner of human longevity. Some are more realistic than others.

    In his new book, The Price of Immortality: The Race to Live Forever, the British journalist, Peter Ward, teases apart the many interventions being touted as possible 'cures' for aging or tools to help us live on and on.  He explores the work of "tech visionaries, scam artists, pseudo scientists and religious fanatics."  In this LLAMA podcast interview, Peter offers a dispassionate view on what we are to believe and whether any of it should be taken seriously.
