Skiing
In a new study published in Journal of Science and Medicine in Sport (JSAMS) Plus, researchers have shown that participating in such sports as snowboarding and skiing might contract age-associated proprioception decline [1]. Ankles keep you balanced It is no secret that exercise is one of the key components of lifelong health, which was even...
Tug of war
In a new study published in the journal Cancer Research, Israeli scientists have found that by increasing the metabolic activity of healthy cells, exercise likely pitches them against cancer cells in a battle for nutrients, which slows cancer progression [1]. Higher metabolic activity Physical activity provides many health benefits, and it can even lower the...
Larisa at Mirai
At MIRAI 2.0 Research and Innovation Week 2022, I joined Swedish and Japanese researchers in discussing future-focused innovations related to aging. What does the future hold? If you want to talk about the future in Japanese, there are two words to choose from: shorai (将来) and mirai (未来). The former describes a more tangible future...
Walking Seniors
In a new study published in International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, Japanese researchers have shown that astaxanthin supplementation improves endurance in healthy older adults [1]. Muscles succumb to oxidative stress Aging leads to reduced muscle strength and endurance. Currently, exercising is the only method to slow down these processes, but it is...
Squatting at desk
A research paper published in the Journal of Applied Physiology has found that regular, intermittent exercise encourages amino acids to form proteins in muscle. Anabolic resistance Previous research has found that a lack of activity accelerates the age-related muscle loss known as sarcopenia [1]. This has been found to be strongly influenced by anabolic resistance,...
Scientists have shown that both high-intensity interval training (HIIT) and time-restricted eating improve metabolism in healthy overweight women, with their combination providing the biggest effect [1]. Which one is better? Good dietary habits and physical activity are currently our best options for living longer and healthier lives. In recent years, two interventions have been gaining...
