Curcumin
Scientists have found that EGCG and curcumin, two well-known antioxidants, are effective both alone and especially in combination in a mouse model of cognitive decline induced by oxidative stress [1]. Not the usual stress Oxidative stress results mostly from molecules called reactive oxygen species (ROS), which are byproducts of normal chemical reactions in the body....
Elderly Resistance Exercise
  In a controlled human study published in Frontiers in Public Health, Iranian researchers have demonstrated that resistance training and creatine supplementation are effective in helping older people retain their strength. Strength training isn't just for athletes It is widely known that weightlifting and other resistance training activities become less effective with age, a phenomenon...
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...
Atherosclerosis
Scientists have drastically improved various symptoms of atherosclerosis in mice by precisely targeting mitochondria with a plant-derived antioxidant [1]. Age-related and deadly Atherosclerosis, the accumulation of plaques on arterial walls, is one of the deadliest age-related diseases. Atherosclerotic plaques, which consist mostly of cholesterol and fat, can impede blood flow in the artery or burst,...
Rat eating blueberry
A study published in Oxidative Medicine and Cellular Longevity has shown how blueberry extract moderately improves several age-related biomarkers in the livers of aging male rats. Rich in polyphenols In their introduction, the researchers describe polyphenols, a broad category of plant compounds that includes flavonoids. Specifically, blueberries are rich in anthocyanins, a group of polyphenols...
According to scientists at the German Cancer Research Center (Deutsches Krebsforschungszentrum, or DKFZ), the enzyme TXNIP, which inhibits the enzyme TRX-1, might be a regulator of aging and might be a viable candidate for future interventions against age-related diseases [1]. Study summary The “free radical theory of aging” suggests that reactive oxygen species (ROS) are...
