Cocoa
A large-scale, randomized, controlled trial has found that in aging adults, cocoa extract does not affect the prevalence of adverse cardiovascular events but decreases their lethality [1]. Rich in flavanols The nutrients that we consume obviously impact our healthspan and lifespan, but studying their effects in a controlled environment in humans is not easy. Most...
Heart and Brain
A study published in Alzheimer's Research & Therapy has shown that low-dose aspirin affects Alzheimer's disease and vascular dementia only in the presence of coronary heart disease. A well-known preventative Acetylsalicylic acid, more commonly known as aspirin, is often taken at a steady, low dose of 100 to 300 milligrams a day in order to...
Obese mouse
Researchers publishing in Cell Reports Medicine have discovered that a vaccine targeting angiopoietin-like protein 3 (ANGPTL3) alleviates dyslipidemia and improves outcomes in obese mice. What is dyslipidemia? Dyslipidemia is marked by having an excess of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, a lack of high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, or an excess of triglycerides. It is strongly linked...
Stethoscope Clock
A new study published in Mechanisms of Ageing and Development has found correlations between cardiovascular aging and a measure of epigenetic age acceleration [1]. Can epigenetic clocks predict cardiovascular disease? Epigenetic Clocks - What are they?An epigenetic clock is a biochemical test that uses DNA methylation levels and accumulation of methyl groups on DNA to...
Umbilical Cord
A new case report published in the International Journal of Molecular Sciences highlights cardiovascular improvements in a patient with Hutchinson-Gilford progeria treated with umbilical cord blood. Hutchinson-Gilford Progeria SyndromeHutchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome, also known simply as progeria, is a disease characterized by premature aging. Patients with progeria develop many of the same conditions that normally occur...
