DISCOVERY: Diet and Lifestyle Study Shows Possible Reversal in Epigenetic Age in a Pilot Clinical Trial

A new study shows just how lifestyle changes and diet can slow the biological aging process and extend health span by three years. According to this small pilot randomized clinical trial, within an 8-week treatment program including diet, sleep, exercise and relaxation guidance, as well as supplemental probiotics and phytonutrients,Read …

Early Animal Study Shows Selenium May Support Healthspan and Metabolic Health Benefits

Adding the nutrient selenium may support healthspan and metabolic health such as protecting against obesity, so says a mouse study published in eLife. The results could lead to interventions that reproduce many of the anti-aging effects associated with dietary restriction while also allowing people to eat as normal. One ofRead …

DISCOVERY: Atomic Portrait of Enzyme MnSOD Reveals Antioxidant’s Therapeutic Properties

One of the by products of mitochondrial energy process is reactive oxygen species (ROS), which can damage and in high enough concentrations can kill cells. An overabundance of ROS has been connected to various health issues, including cancers, neurological disorders, and heart disease. The enzyme manganese superoxide dismutase (MnSOD) usesRead …

Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatments Reverse Cellular Aging Process

A study from Tel Aviv University (TAU) and the Shamir Medical Center in Israel indicates that hyperbaric oxygen treatments (HBOT) in healthy aging adults can reverse the aging of blood cells and essentially reverse the cellular aging process. The researchers found that a unique protocol of treatments with high-pressure oxygenRead …

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 …
