Charles Laceille Gifford (March 15, 1871 – August 23, 1947) was a United States Representative from Massachusetts. He was born in Cotuit on March 15, 1871. Gifford attended the common schools, and taught in Massachusetts and Connecticut from 1890 to 1900. He later engaged in the real estate business on Cape Cod as the owner of several summer cottages rented by vacationers, and the operator of the Cotuit Inn. Gifford then became interested in oyster raising as president of the Cotuit Oyster Company, and cranberry farming.

He was elected a member of the Massachusetts House of Representatives (1912–1913), and served in the Massachusetts State Senate (1914–1919).

He was elected as a Republican to the Sixty-seventh Congress to fill the vacancy caused by the resignation of Joseph Walsh and on the same day was elected to the Sixty-eighth Congress. He was reelected to the Sixty-ninth and to the eleven succeeding Congresses and served from November 7, 1922, until his death. He was chairman of the Committee on Elections No. 3 (Sixty-ninth and Seventieth Congresses), and the Committee on Election of President, Vice President, and Representatives (Seventy-first Congress).

Gifford died in Cotuit on August 23, 1947, and was buried in Cotuit's Mosswood Cemetery.

Today’s video is sponsored by Elysium Health, which produces Basis, a dietary supplement that’s clinically proven to increase NAD+, a natural occurring substance in our bodies that declines as we age. This video is made in collaboration with REAL LIFE LORE, a YouTube channel that asks head-scratching questions about things you didn’t even know you NEEDED to know -- Pop-over to RLL after this vid if you looking for an interesting perspective on today’s topic. Can cosmetics reverse age? Humanity has been trying to answer that for… ohh, EVER. One of the oldest medical texts, a papyrus dating all the way back to 2500 BC, contained “A Recipe for Transforming An Old Man Into A Youth”. It was a face cream made of fruit and mud --- huh -- not too different from some of today’s cosmetic products. Alchemists, medieval predecessors to modern day chemists, attempted to create the “Elixir of Life”, a mysterious substance that was fabled to keep you young forever. In the 1800’s, the father of endocrinology, scientist Charles Brown-Sequard, even got into the act by injecting himself with a mash of dog and guinea pig testicles as soon as he felt old age looming over him. Shocker! None of these things made anyone any younger. Anyone could claim anything. Consumers were disgruntled. Mass chaos ensued. That was, until 1938, when a law descended from the mountaintops of D.C. that said, "Henceforth, cosmetics shall only beautify, cleanse and promote attractiveness”. Well, in reality, it was actually a little more toned down that. According to this definition, cosmetics could only hide a wrinkle, not actually remove it. Oh, did you want more than that? Well now you’re talking about a drug, and that requires proof of safety and effectiveness before it reaches store shelves. Ok. But wait…. if I stand in front of the wall of cosmetics in the beauty aisle, I see a different story. Marketing claims like “regenerates cells”, “repairs wrinkles”, and “heals skin” seem to suggest that reversing age is possible, even if only on a minute scale. So cosmetics can reverse aging!?! What if I told you there might be a grey area between cosmetics and drugs? Welcome to the world of cosmeceuticals, a marketing term coined in the 80’s by a notable dermatologist who pointed out some cosmetics could have a real effect on the structure or the function of the skin -- or at least used ingredients that could. Heard of retinol or vitamin C anyone? However, since cosmeceuticals aren’t a category recognized by the FDA, these cosmetics with their supposed drug-like capabilities don’t undergo the same scrutiny as pharmaceuticals. No one has to state the percentages of the active ingredients or even provide clinical proof that they’re actually having an effect. That sounds kinda sketchy. Are the ingredients in the cosmetic stable? Can they penetrate the skin barrier? Who knows. They may work and they may not. We’ll never know unless someone starts doing studies that allow us to figure what benefits are real and which products deliver them. The supplements market has the same problem. A pair of studies done only a few years ago showed that many supplements didn’t even contain the ingredients they claimed to use. Yeah, your supplement pill might as well be packed with sawdust. That’s a problem that Elysium, maker of the supplement Basis, is trying to tackle. Despite the lack of regulation requiring them to do so, Elysium HAS done human trials with Basis. The trials show that when users take the recommended dose of the supplement, there is a 40% increase in the amount of NAD+ otherwise known as Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide. NAD+ works with sirtuins, a family of proteins connected to longevity in animals. But sirtuins don’t work alone. They only function when NAD+ is present. NAD+ functions as a helper molecule, aiding sirtuins in DNA maintenance and mitochondrial function. Think of sirtuins as a car, getting you from place to place. NAD+ is like the gas, without it, driving anywhere would be impossible. Without NAD+ sirtuins can’t function. As we age our NAD+ levels go down and scientist think the decrease may cause our cells to work less efficiently over time. In theory, increasing NAD+ may support how we age and improve our healthspan, the number of years we live in optimal health. Elysium’s co-founder, Dr. Guarente, the director of the Glenn Lab for the Biology of Aging at MIT says - “We’re not trying to extend lifespan; we want to improve healthspan.” So we know NAD+ is having an effect on the body, and because Elysium released Basis as a supplement, we get to try it for ourselves now, instead of waiting decades. After all, those of us concerned about aging aren’t getting any younger. And now let’s see what my friend Joseph, from Real Life Lore has to say about the topic!
