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...
Magnesium foods
Researchers publishing in the European Journal of Nutrition looked into magnesium as a possible candidate for preventing dementia, focusing on potential improvements to brain volumes and reduced white matter lesions [1]. Building from previous research BrainThe brain is perhaps the most important organ in the body. While many organs are critical to our survival, the...
Astrocyte
Publishing in Aging, a team of Chilean researchers has described a relationship between gene shifts in the brain and neurons not getting the energy they need. Greedy glia BrainThe brain is perhaps the most important organ in the body. While many organs are critical to our survival, the brain contains the self. It is responsible...
Brain synapses
Researchers have published a study in Aging Cell on how inhibiting the death of axons in the brain protects the brains of old mice from inflammation. Necroptosis in the brain It is well-known that aged organisms have problems with cognitive function, and this is strongly linked to losses in the number and availability of synapses...
Blood DNA
Research published today in Nature Aging has shown that heterochronic parabiosis, the circulatory joining of young and old organisms, has rejuvenative effects on the gene expression of multiple types of brain cells in mice. Parabiosis affects a wide variety of factors at once Heterochronic parabiosis is a well-known aging intervention in mouse studies, and some...
Sniffing mouse
Researchers publishing in Aging Cell have elucidated a relationship between aging, the loss of smell, and NAD+ in a mouse model. Olfactory ability declines with age Roughly half of people over the age of 65 experience a decreased ability to smell [1], and research has shown that it is an early biomarker for neurodegenerative diseases,...
