Mice eating
According to a new study, the age-related increase in intestinal permeability that drives inflammation can be alleviated by inhibiting the enzyme arginase, a regulator of nitric oxide production [1]. Gut feeling While age-related sterile inflammation (inflammaging) is considered one of the hallmarks of aging and a major cause of age-related diseases [2], scientists still don't...

Researchers publishing in Nutrients have shown that adding a strain of lactic acid bacteria to the gut flora of older, memory-impaired people partially alleviates their memory problems. A specific anti-inflammatory bacterium The researchers begin their paper by noting that mild cognitive impairment (MCI) is associated with memory loss and is frequent precursor of Alzheimer's disease...
Intestines
In ESC Heart Failure, researchers have commented about the correlation between a poor gut microbiome and aging of the heart [1]. The microbiome is important in aging Research increasingly suggests that the quality and composition of the gut microbiome may play a role as important as exercise on health. The gut microbiome is a living...
No to soda
A new open-label, randomized, controlled study published in Cell showed that zero-calorie sweeteners are metabolically active and some might impair glycemic response in healthy adults [1]. What does “sugar-free” mean? The human brain is the main consumer of glucose in the body, and glucose availability is paramount for neurons to generate action potentials and release...
New Hallmarks
Publishing in Aging five months after their panel discussion in Copenhagen, many well-known researchers have explained their reasons for wishing to add new hallmarks of aging to the existing paradigm. A new addition to an old paradigm What is Aging? The Nine Reasons We AgeAging is a series of processes that include direct damage, accumulation...
Mouse eating
Publishing in Microbiome, a team of researchers has ascertained multiple physical effects of aging gut flora in mice. Antibiotics and fecal transfers The researchers used three groups of mice: young (3 months), old (18 months), and aged (24 months). Young and old groups were divided into a control group, an antibiotics group, and three recipient...
