Nanoparticles in blood
March 17, 2021
New research in the journal ACS Nano describes a method to improve the efficiency of NMN and metformin in the liver by using a novel nanoparticle delivery method. Nanotechnology in drug delivery  Nanotechnology is a broad field that utilizes the unique properties of extraordinarily small materials. In medicine, it has been applied in drug delivery...
Elderly resistance training
October 29, 2020
A new study published in Aging has shown that although taking metformin while undergoing resistance training limits muscle growth, it promotes youthful gene expression. The downside As the researchers of this study point out, previous research shows that taking metformin while undergoing physical resistance training (PRT) restricts the development of hypertrophy [1]. While hypertrophy is...

A recent study published in Cell Metabolism has shown that metformin, a drug that has been previously shown to be effective against some aspects of aging, ameliorates inflammaging by promoting autophagy, the cellular recycling of damaged components. Mitochondrial dysfunction, autophagy, and TH17 Mitochondrial dysfunction is one of the hallmarks of aging, the root causes that...
Metformin structure
April 16, 2020
A new study published in Aging shows that metformin, a drug that has been studied for its effects on longevity, restores mitochondrial function and repairs metabolic defects in cells from people with myotonic dystrophy, a condition that shares many of the same characteristics as aging. A genetic disease that causes age-related symptoms Myotonic dystrophy is...
Myelin
November 22, 2019
A recent study published in Cell Stem Cell shows that fasting and metformin are effective in a mouse model of demyelination, which is caused in humans by such disorders as multiple sclerosis. Myelin, demyelination, and remyelination Myelin, a substance rich in beneficial proteins and fats, is an insulator and protector of nerve cells and helps...
