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...

Publishing in Aging, researchers from the Chengdu Jinjiang Hospital in China have discovered that caloric restriction is less effective on mice previously fed a high-calorie diet. Well-known effects In their introduction, the researchers discuss what caloric restriction is known to do, citing papers that show its effects on autophagy [1], inflammation [2], nutrient sensing [3],...
Olive oil
Scientists have shown that oleanoic acid, a nutrient most associated with olive oil, greatly improves numerous markers of cardiac health in aging mice [1]. is a nutrient abundant in some foods, particularly olive oil. Olive oil has been shown to have health benefits compared to most other types of oil, but this data comes mostly...
Diabetes Heart
The latest research published in Diabetes has implicated senescent cardiac stem cells as the link between diabetes and cardiovascular disease [1]. Why does diabetes increase the risk of cardiovascular disease? Type 2 diabetes mellitus is closely related to aging. Aging is a major risk factor for diabetes, and individuals with diabetes exhibit several characteristics of...
Chest fibrosis
Scientists have created genetically engineered T cells that target activated cardiac fibroblasts in a transient manner, alleviating symptoms of cardiac injury [1]. HeartThe heart is a four-chambered organ located between our lungs. Blood is pumped by the heart through two loops, one to the lungs, oxygenating the blood, and the other out to the rest...
Heart and veins
The latest research published in the Journal of Anatomy found that spermidine alters the morphology of mitochondria in aged mouse heart tissue [1]. Mitochondrial dysfunction in the aging heart Why we Age: Mitochondrial DysfunctionAs they age, the mitochondria in our cells lose their ability to provide cellular energy and release reactive oxygen species that harm...
