Resveratrol foods
According to a review published in Food Science and Human Wellness, resveratrol has a positive impact on mitochondrial dysfunction, one of the hallmarks of aging. A hallmark with downstream consequences Why we Age: Mitochondrial DysfunctionAs they age, the mitochondria in our cells lose their ability to provide cellular energy and release reactive oxygen species that...
Reaching for the sun
In a new study published in Nutrients, researchers analyzed the results of 80 randomized clinical trials and assessed the impact of vitamin D supplementation on mortality [1]. Vitamin D plays essential roles in human health According to the CDC, 6.7% to 36.9% of Americans take vitamin D supplements, depending on age group. This makes it...
Creatine
A review recently published in Sports Medicine has discussed a considerable number of research papers that describe the effects of the muscle-building supplement creatine on the brain. Broadening the studies of a well-known supplement Creatine is a natural compound that is naturally formed in the human body from other amino acids and is found in...
Taurine
In a new study published in Science, taurine supplementation led to a significant lifespan extension in mice and health benefits in non-human primates [1]. What is taurine? Taurine is an amino acid, but it does not participate in protein building. Instead, it has various other functions, such as helping create bile salts, which is important...
Vitamin C Fruits
Korean scientists publishing in Nature were able to increase the stability of vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant, using a short, engineered DNA molecule called an aptamer. The result improved various aspects of brain aging in naturally aged mice [1]. The unstable antioxidant Oxidative stress is one of the most harmful age-related processes. In particular, it...
Amino acid
Scientists publishing in Antioxidants have reported that increasing glutathione levels with GlyNAC, a supplement that combines glycine and cysteine, significantly reverses age-related cognitive decline in naturally aged mice [1]. GlyNAC vs oxidative stress Oxidative stress caused by reactive oxygen species (ROS) is known to be one of the upstream causes of aging and contributes to...
