n this video, the Sheekey Science Show discusses the different types of fasting (periodic and intermittent) and how they relate to aging, including their beneficial effects on metabolism and stem cells, along with the concept of refeeding. Supplements that serve as caloric restriction mimetics, which replicate some of the effects of fasting, are also explored.

In this video, the Sheekey Science Show explores fisetin, a flavonoid that is found in strawberries and shown to have senolytic effects. This compound, a polyphenol like resveratrol and quercetin, has been shown to somewhat activate SIRT1, which enhances longevity, while eliminating harmful senescent cells in mice, as proven by the reduction of cells that...

This time on the Sheekey Science Show, the relationship between cancer and exercise is explored. Regular physical activity is associated with a reduced risk of cancer, and an animal study has fingered the proliferation of cytotoxic CD8 T cells as the causative agents of this effect. The physical, metabolic reasons for this are explored as well, and specific exercise metabolites are identified as the causes of these cells' increased ability to infiltrate and thereby reduce tumors.

Recently on Lifespan.io, we reported the rather overhyped findings of a study that presented hyperbaric oxygen therapy as an effective way to reverse human aging. The Sheekey Science Show offers its own explanation on this study and the reactions of multiple media publications to it.

As we reported yesterday on Lifespan.io, the common supplement alpha-ketoglutarate has been shown in a rodent study to combat osteoporosis, the age-related loss of bone tissue caused by an imbalance between bone-building and bone-destroying cells. Today, we present a related video from the Sheekey Science Show, a popular science show that often discusses aging and...
