Beating the Odds
With Chris Mirabile
All entrepreneurs are visionaries, but our latest podcast guest has a vision more lofty than most. Chris Mirabile aims to add one billion years of healthy life to humanity–a goal that may be within reach, given that Chris himself is aging 31% slower than the average person his age.
Chris is the CEO and Founder of NOVOS Labs, the first human longevity company to simultaneously address all 12 biological causes of aging through its innovative, patent-pending over-the-counter supplements.
As a serial entrepreneur, brain tumor survivor, and the youngest winner of NYU Stern’s business plan competition, Chris has a track record of beating the odds. He’s co-founded multiple lucrative startups, all while pursuing a lifelong passion for wellness, with an emphasis on avoiding disease, extending his healthy lifespan, and maximizing his well-being.
Getting Scientific Support
Although Chris’s background is in business, he wanted to ensure his ideas at NOVOS Labs were fully backed by the scientific community. So he decided to become a “citizen scientist”–running self-experiments, reading scientific articles, and networking with top scientists in the field. In the early years of NOVOS, Chris attended biotech events to get himself in the room with leading academics.
It’s an approach that’s paid off. NOVOS has significant support in the scientific community, with some of the top minds in the field endorsing their products. To date, their anti-aging supplements have been backed by more than 400 scientific and independent research studies.
Natural Ways to Improve Your Health
NOVOS Lab’s anti-aging supplements target 12 biological hallmarks of aging to improve health and extend the lifespan. But even without taking supplements, Chris says there are plenty of natural ways to slow the aging process.
The first strategy is through nutrition. Meal timing, otherwise known as intermittent fasting, involves restricting your food intake to certain hours of the day (typically 16 hours of fasting with an eight-hour window for eating). Eating natural foods such as fish and whole eggs, is another way to slow aging.
As for exercise, Chris recommends 25 minutes of low to moderate cardio each day, paired with strength training two to three days per week. Another important factor for our health is sleep: if you live in the city, try blackout curtains or an eye mask to keep light out of your bedroom. Make sure the temperature of the room is cool and use ear plugs to block noise if necessary.
Meeting Market Demand
It’s clear from the success of NOVOS that Chris had identified a strong market need. Their supplements sold out in the first week, and for the first year, their biggest problem was keeping up with demand. All of NOVOS’s early growth was organic and word-of-mouth.
In July 2021, the company sales metrics were still performing extremely well, so they decided to raise their first round of venture capital. With the help of $5 million in funding, they hired their first employee that fall and have grown steadily ever since.

“The question is, is what you’re about to do actually good for you in the long-term as well? And the answer is not always. A lot of the health advice, and even medical advice at times, is focused on short-term goals.”
“I want to have a positive impact on the world. I want to do good for people in any way that I can.”
“The way I define longevity is increasing your healthspan and your lifespan–both how long you live without chronic disease and how long you live before passing away.”
“What we’re thinking about is the 100-year-old who’s on the dancefloor at their great-great-grandkid’s wedding and living it up, and has more energy than the 50-year-olds and 40-year-olds. That’s longevity. That’s what we want, and that’s achievable.”
“How can we take modern living environments and optimize lifestyles as much as possible, so that we can replicate–or even go further, in some cases–than those living in Blue Zones?”
“I want to spread this knowledge to as many people as possible, because you really can slow down or speed up your pace of aging, and everyone should at least have that knowledge to then decide for themselves if they’re going to take the care to slow down their aging.”
