  • The 48-year-old comic said his libido is now ‘off the charts’ thanks to supplement
  • Lindsey channelled her energy into making ‘elixir of youth potion’ Jolt 

Russell Kane reckons he’s found the ‘elixir of youth’ — and he says it’s made him ‘so permanently f****** horny’.

Candidly sharing details about his love life with MailOnline, the 48-year-old comic admitted his libido is now ‘off the charts’ thanks to a cocktail of supplements he is taking.

Russell credits his rejuvenation on one in particular, a ‘biohacking’ pill which is the brainchild of his wife Lindsey.

Thanks to his obsession with maintaining the energy of a 21-year-old, to prolong his career and party in Ibiza three times a year, Russell had slowly accumulated bottles of questionable supplements in his bathroom cabinet. At one point, he was popping more than a dozen a day.

In 2021, Lindsey became so fed-up with the pair of them taking so many different pills that she decided to channel her energy into making Jolt, which Russell has branded an ‘elixir of youth potion’.

The £1.99-a-day supplement, impressively backed by scientists, supposedly carries all of the same health benefits Russell got from the catalogue of bottles before.

Russell, who has been taking it for more than a year, claimed that Jolt has left him with more energy at 48 than he had two decades ago, shortly after he burst onto the comedy scene and dazzled audiences with his high-energy routine.

Discussing his journey with MailOnline, he said: ‘It was 10-15 years ago that I started getting massive comedy success.

‘I was knackered and has less energy but was trying to live like I was 20.’

Trying to take his health more seriously, he first overhauled his diet and exercise habits to bring them in line with his mantra — ‘don’t eat s**t and move a bit’.

He also started reading self-help books and listening to podcasts in a bid to better manage his stress levels and sort out his sleep, as he was ‘rolling around in bed for nine hours and getting six hours of s*** sleep’.

It was only then that Russell ‘super-charged’ his approach by ‘bio-hacking’ — lifestyle tweaks that aim to make the body work more efficiently — through supplements.

‘It was about keeping that rocket fuel energy that I had when I was 28/29 that the audiences were coming for,’ he said. 

‘I was like “how the f*** can I hang onto peak performance?” 

‘Footballers retire, sprinters retire, everyone retires, there’s no way I’m going to slow down or retire until I’m in a box. 

‘So the way to do that is bio-hack the natural biology to slow down the ageing and to charge the mitochondria of the cell up. And that’s what I’m about, just keeping those cells fully re-charged.’

Vitamin C was the first one he started with, which he would ‘shock dose’ — taking the maximum safe dose — anytime he felt a cold coming on. 

‘Is it a placebo? I don’t know but I haven’t had a full cold in about seven years,’ Russell said.

He then started taking vitamin D, which all Brits are advised to take daily between October and March, as well as fish oils and pumpkin seed oils, which have been linked to a healthier prostate and hair.

Russell began reading work by Professor David Sinclair, an expert in the biology of ageing at Harvard Medical School, who talked about nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN) and resveratrol, so added those to his routine.

As a result, his bathroom cabinet was ‘completely full’ and he was taking ‘seven different things in the morning, five different things at lunchtime and five different things at bedtime’.

Yet he was feeling better than ever, having the stamina for gigs and three trips to Ibiza a year.

It was at this point that Lindsey had a crisis ‘about not making the most out of life’, Russell said. ‘She had the idea — take the top seven options that have best anti-ageing evidence.’

The 36-year-old, who is also a property investor, sprung into action after the pair were ‘inundated’ with questions about their supplement routines after Russell discussed it on Steven Bartlett’s The Diary of a CEO podcast.

However, Lindsey found that people didn’t want to spend a fortune on lots of different products ‘They wanted a convenient product and have one thing a day instead of opening a billion pots,’ she said. 

She reached out to manufacturers and recruited Russell’s childhood friend Daniel Stone, a chief technology officer at a tech company, to make their website and deal with the accounts. 

Lindsey took up the role of CEO and Russell oversees the creative side.

Russell now takes Jolt alongside a handful of other supplements. On the difference that they have made, he said: ‘Energy wise, that’s been the main change. 

‘But looking at my skin, looking at photos, I can see how much more haggard I was. I’ve not cleaned up my bloody going out and going to Ibiza and I still love a beer, I love a wine, it’s not like I was a junkie — I’m doing everything the same. 

‘I just feel more vibrant, I feel more alive. 

‘And the other one that Lindsey wouldn’t want me to tell you, my libido is off the f***ing charts. 

‘I know all men are pervy their entire lives until they die but poor old Lindsey — it is sort of like 19-year-old, teenage man energy wise, that’s what I’m like. 

‘So permanently f***ing horny, I’m afraid, poor Lindsey because we’re married so she’s no interest in that really. That’s a lie — she’s also taking Jolt.’

Lindsey said Jolt, alongside a healthy lifestyle, has eased her knee pain and given her a new lease of energy. ‘It does give you boost of energy, I’m sleeping better, you’re just able to do more because you’ve got that energy. And it’s not like a coffee buzz energy – you just feel it everywhere,’ she said.

They teamed up with scientists to create the formula and put it through its paces through trials, recruiting four people aged 25 to 29 to have their blood and muscle strength checked before and after knocking back their concoction.

Results showed that forearm lean muscle mass increased by six per cent over one month.

Jolt says this showed that the supplement leads to bodies that are ‘built stronger and behave younger’.

Meanwhile, free testosterone levels jumped 13.8 per cent, theoretically equating to a faster recovery from illness, as well as boosted libido, skin, mood and energy.

Trial results suggest the pills work in five weeks, while ‘some customers say they notice difference within a fortnight’, according to Russell.

Jolt launched in May and the first batch sold out in less than 24 hours after customers flocked to their site, which saw a three-month long waiting list build up. They have since built up their stock and haven’t sold out since.

Those looking to try the supplements will fork out £180 for a three-month supply and take three capsules once a day, which are packed with the ‘big hitters’ of anti-ageing and life extension, according to Jolt.

They contain 500mg of NMN, which the body makes naturally but levels decline with age. This drop-off has been linked to a swathe of age-related disease, while supplementing it has been associated with improved muscle function.

The supplement also contains 500mg of trans-resveratrol, a polyphenol found in grapes, berries and red wine, which Jolt says may reduce inflammation and boost the function of mitochondria – the bean-shaped structures that power cells.

The other ingredients are fisetin, R lipoic acid, curcumin, skinax2 and ceramosides, which have been linked to a plethora of health benefits.

Dr Amit Sra, the co-founder of the Cosmebeaute clinic in London and leader of the trial, said the ‘small but important testing phase’ showed the supplement has a ‘positive effect’.

He said: 'I want people to hang out on the Jolt page who have no intention of buying to educate themselves about getting rid of junk food, moving a bit each day and sleep and stress and all those'

Russell added: 'It's just about moving first. Supplements are the icing — and who wants f**ing icing without a cake? No one'

Dr Hussain Al-Zubaidi, a GP and Jolt ambassador, said: ‘Jolt acts to supplement your health by providing key elements that are not often consumed in the average diet. The lifestyle we lead now sets the stepping stones towards our future longevity.’

However, Dr Gunter Kuhnle, a professor of food science at the University of Reading and sits on the Government’s Scientific Advisory Committee on Nutrition, warned that the trial doesn’t reveal much about the effect Jolt has on ageing.

‘Short term muscle mass and testosterone are probably not the best markers for a long term effect (and I would assume most people are more concerned about cognitive function, heart disease and cancer),’ he said.

Dr Kuhnle, who is also a member of the Committee on Toxicity of Chemicals in Food, Consumer Products and the Environment, added: ‘The problem is that a lot of the fundamental research [into these ingredients] is rather pedestrian and boring. 

‘For longer term benefits – especially claiming about healthy ageing – one would need a much longer and larger study to find a benefit. And by mixing these compounds, one would have to find out whether there are any interactions.

‘I would probably say that trying to eat a balanced diet, perhaps push fibre intake to 30g/d and do some exercise will have more long term benefit, be more enjoyable and cheaper.’

Russell seems to agree. He says there’s no point in people going near his supplement, or others, if they don’t already have a healthy lifestyle.

‘I want people to hang out on the Jolt page who have no intention of buying to educate themselves about getting rid of junk food, moving a bit each day and sleep and stress and all those.

‘It’s just about moving first. Supplements are the icing — and who wants f***ing icing without a cake? No one.’
