Senior man walking
Publishing in Nature Communications, Dr. Tom Yate, Dr. Neliesh J. Samani, and colleagues used data from approximately 400,000 people in the UK Biobank in order to examine the relationship between walking pace and telomere length. Why We Age: Telomere AttritionTelomeres are DNA regions located at the ends of a chromosome. Their normal length is 8-10...
In a new review paper, scientists show that exercise can alleviate age-related cognitive decline, but not all types of exercise are created equal [1]. Watch your head Lifestyle choices, such as exercise and diet, are the most powerful anti-aging interventions currently available to us, and they might be the only effective ones. Exercise, in particular,...

In a study published in Nature Aging, a group of scientists has shown that NAD+ levels are correlated not only with age but with physical activity, with elder athletes rivaling normal young adults [1]. NAD: small, crucial, age-related Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) is as important as it is tiny. As its name suggests, this molecule...
Mouse clock
A new preprint on bioRxiv shows how researchers have developed transcriptomic, cell type specific aging clocks from the regenerative zones of mouse brains [1]. Measuring age at the level of a single cell Aging is multi-faceted and difficult to quantify. While chronological age is straightforward, it doesn’t necessarily capture the underlying biology, as individuals naturally...

Scientists have transferred the neuroprotective effects of exercise to sedentary mice via plasma transfusion and identified an obscure protein that might be responsible for the effect [1]. It’s in the blood The idea that young blood can rejuvenate old organisms is ancient. Kings and tyrants reportedly took baths filled with blood of their unfortunate young...
Obese exercise
Researchers have proven that our bodies partially compensate for calories burned during exercise by cutting energy expenditure on vital functions. Their discovery might explain why it can be so hard to lose weight by working out [1]. The three components of energy expenditure As much as we love covering mind-blowing scientific breakthroughs in the longevity...
