Results of Fasting and Energy-Restricted Diets on Leptin and Adiponectin Levels in Humans

Fasting and energy-restricted diets have been evaluated in several studies as a means of improving cardiometabolic biomarkers related to body fat loss. However, further investigation is required to understand potential alterations of leptin and adiponectin concentrations. Thus, we performed a systematic review and meta-analysis to derive a more precise estimateRead …

Glutathione Precursor GlyNAC Reverses Premature Aging with HIV

A new study from Baylor College of Medicine shows that findings supplementing GlyNAC, a combination of glycine and N-acetylcysteine, corrects glutathione deficiencies in humans with HIV, thus reversing premature aging, and could have implications beyond HIV, pending further investigations. Premature aging in people with HIV is now recognized as aRead …

NAD+ Study Shows How the Supplement Slows the Aging Process in Werner Syndrome

NAD+

A new study on NAD+ adds insight into the aging process and how this particular supplement assists the body in cleaning up aging cells. Researchers studied Werner Syndrome, a particularly difficult disease associated with accelerated aging. Patients with Werner Syndrome have early signs of aging, such as grey hair, wrinkledRead …

Exposure to Blue Light may Accelerate Aging in the Brain and Retinas

blue light

New research at Oregon State University suggests that the blue wavelengths produced by light-emitting diodes damage cells in the brain as well as retinas. The study, published today in Aging and Mechanisms of Disease, involved a widely used organism, Drosophila melanogaster, the common fruit fly, an important model organism becauseRead …
