Researchers publishing in Journal of Biomedical Science have concluded that hesperetin, a compound found in various herbs, improves longevity in mice by promoting the expression of the pro-longevity gene Cisd2. Mitochondria and Cisd2 This paper begins with an explanation of mitochondrial dysfunction, one of the hallmarks of aging, and the function of Cisd2. Previous research...
Exercising man
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...
Lab mouse
New mouse data published in the latest issue of Aging Cell highlights the aging benefits of a novel NF-κB-based drug. NF-κB in aging and disease  NF-κB is a transcription factor found in nearly all animal cell types. It is activated in response to multiple physiological insults, such as stress, reactive oxygen species (ROS), and viral...
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...
Brain anatomy
A study conducted in Sweden and published in Scientific Reports has outlined the relationship between aging and the metabolites present in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), which cushions and supports the brain and spine. A detailed, metabolic analysis The researchers extracted CSF from 41 people aged 20 to 74 who don't have neurological disorders. They investigated somewhat...

In recent years, there has been considerable interest in the naturally occurring molecule and dietary supplement nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN) and its potential influence on aging. While there have been numerous animal studies suggesting that it may be useful in combating some age-related decline, there has been a lack of human data until now. In previous...
