Biomarkers
Researchers publishing in Biogerontology have tested multiple biomarkers in an effort to use them as proxies for aging, and some of their findings were surprising. A simple study with direct measurements Unlike other association studies that are used to evaluate biomarkers of aging, this study did not use data from a pre-existing biobank or related...
Spoon of Collagen
A placebo-controlled, double-blinded human clinical trial published in Bioscience, Biotechnology, and Biochemistry has determined that collagen peptide ingestion reduces the amount of advanced glycation end-products (AGEs) in the skin. When the Maillard reaction is a problem Advanced Glycation End Products in Disease and AgingAdvanced glycation end products (AGEs) result from a reaction between reducing sugars...

A cellular study published in the Journal of Dental Sciences has shown that Vitamin D alleviates inflammaging related to the oxidative stress brought on by advanced glycation end-products (AGEs). Diabetes and AGEs Previous research has shown that the uncontrolled blood sugars associated with Type 2 diabetes attach themselves to other proteins and fats. This process,...
Pankaj Kapahi Interview
Dr. Pankaj Kapahi is a veteran geroscientist. His laboratory at the famous Buck Institute for Research on Aging is among the few that study advanced glycation end products (AGEs) and the many ways in which they affect aging. Dr. Kapahi's company, Juvify, produces GLYLO, a supplement for detoxifying AGEs that also reduces food cravings. In...
Blood cells in an artery
Today, we want to highlight the results of a recent long-term study, which collected data over a four-year period to investigate the link between aortic stiffening and cognitive decline, including dementia. During aging, our blood vessels become increasingly stiff and lose their flexibility, and the cells comprising it struggle to contract and relax properly. Blood...
