Researchers suggest that trimethylamine, a metabolic byproduct that is created when bacteria in the gut break down foods such as red meat, may be a key player in vascular aging. Trimethylamine and vascular aging Some researchers believe that trimethylamine damages our arteries, according to a new study conducted by researchers at the University of Colorado...

According to a study by Georgia State University scientists, a molecule called β-hydroxybutyrate has anti-aging effects on the vascular system; more specifically, the molecule appears to prevent senescence of vascular cells by promoting cellular quiescence instead [1]. Study abstract β-hydroxybutyrate (β-HB) elevation during fasting or caloric restriction is believed to induce anti-aging effects and alleviate...

Researchers from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have discovered that a particular type of immune cell encourages harmful inflammation in the heart after a heart attack, and they have found a potential solution for protecting the heart. The study, which was led by Dr. Douglas L. Mann, showed that a mouse model...

Researchers at the University of California San Diego School of Medicine have shown that they can block inflammation in mice, thereby protecting them from liver disease and hardening of the arteries while increasing their healthy lifespan. The study, published in the journal Nature, shows that inflammation can be blocked using a naturally occurring antibody that...

Earlier this month, there was a human clinical trial of the supplement MitoQ, which showed some interesting results. We thought that we would take a look at the data, and discuss the findings. Literature [1] Rossman, M. J., Santos-Parker, J. R., Steward, C. A., Bispham, N. Z., Cuevas, L. M., Rosenberg, H. L., … &...

A human study of the mitochondrial antioxidant MitoQ shows promise in addressing some aspects of vascular aging. Antioxidant-based therapeutics to forestall the effects of aging have had a long history, ever since the elaboration of the free radical theory of aging by Denham Harmon in 1956. However, this long history has also had mixed results,...
