Misunderstood Mitochondria
There's a scientific debate over what damaged mitochondria to cause premature aging; in this episode of X10, we explore both sides of an interesting and intricate issue. Script Our current understanding of biological aging is that it’s the result of different factors that interact with each other in complex ways. Malfunctioning mitochondria - which you...
Rat in maze
Researchers from Hebei Medical University in China have found that testosterone supplementation ameliorates age-related brain dysfunction in male rats. A focus on mitochondria 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 cells and cause increasing levels of...
Stem cell development
A new study published in the FASEB Journal shows how mesenchymal stem cells derived from adipose tissue (ADSCs) reverse some effects of aging in nearby cells. It's not the cells themselves, it's what they secrete The original and ongoing main purpose of stem cell therapies is to directly combat stem cell exhaustion: to replenish the...
Lung branches
A new review published in the American Journal of Respiratory Cell and Molecular Biology discusses the causes of, and potential treatments for, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF). Fibrosis, but not focused on fibroblasts In the lungs, the trachea (airway) breaks out into a tree-like system of nodes. Each branch ends in alveoli, which are responsible for...
Saunas can activate heat shock proteins and may be a potential way to improve health and potentially, longevity.
There are a few reasons to consider including sauna use as part of your personal health and longevity strategy. What is a sauna? The word sauna comes from the Finnish language, and it means an earth or snow pit. While Finnish saunas today are typically log-walled, wooden paneled, or even tiled structures, these modern forms...
Mitochondrion
A new study conducted by a team of Japanese scientists and published in Scientific Reports details how cells can have their damaged mitochondria destroyed and replaced with healthy ones, offering a potential solution to the problem of mitochondrial dysfunction. Why we Age: Mitochondrial DysfunctionAs they age, the mitochondria in our cells lose their ability to...
