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...
Exercise
Scientists have used DNA methylation markers to measure the anti-aging effects of healthy diet and physical activity, reaching interesting, if at times contradictory, results [1]. Move, eat healthy, check your biological age Physical activity (PA) and healthy diet are two powerful interventions that have time and again shown their potential to slow aging. Their importance...
Elderly exercising
Researchers have developed a biological aging clock based on movement data from wearable devices. Using their clock and the same dataset, they identified a few possibly life-prolonging nutrients and drugs [1]. I move, therefore I am Developing reliable biomarkers of aging is crucial for geroscience, since deducing the geroprotective effect of interventions from mortality alone,...
Runner
A clinical trial of endurance runners recently published in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition found nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN) to increase several measures of aerobic capacity. Nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN)Nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN) is a precursor of the coenzyme NAD+, which serves critical functions in our cells and declines with age.Read More Could NMN...
Bosu exercise
A new study published in Aging Cell shows that a 12-week program of structured exercise lowers the activity of the inflammatory SASP in people in their mid-60s. Why we Age: Cellular SenescenceAs your body ages, more of your cells become senescent. Senescent cells do not divide or support the tissues of which they are part;...
Qigong practice
Researchers from the University of Hong Kong have found that qigong, an ancient Chinese mind-body practice, improves cognitive abilities, lowers inflammation, and increases the size of the hippocampus in elderly subjects [1]. A value to tradition Scientists agree that if we want to live longer, exercise is still one of our best options. It has...
