      Zinc Deficiency Linked to Aging, Immune System Declines

      by
      A new study has shown, for the first time, a biological mechanism by which zinc deficiency develop with age, and lead to immune system decline and increased inflammation associated with many health problems, including cancer, heart disease, autoimmune disease and diabetes. The research from the Linus Pauling Institute at Oregon...

      Scientists Give Aging Muscles New Youth

      by
      For the First time, a scientists have identified a key to declining muscle repair during aging. In addition they discovered how to halt the process in mice with a common drug. Although an early study, the findings provide clues as to how muscles lose mass with age. The study, to...

      Lithium a Fountain of Youth Close to Home

      by
      Researchers from the University of Jena, in partnership with researchers from universities in Oita and Hiroshima have demonstrated, by two independent approaches, that even a low concentration of lithium leads to an increased life expectancy in humans as well as in a model organism, the roundworm Caenorhabditis elegans. Lithium is...

      These Fats Actually Help Build Muscle

      by
      A study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition finds that Omega-3 fats may help the loss of muscle mass from aging.

      Good News for Mice, Amino Acid Supplement Gives Them Longer Life

      by
      Older male mice given water laced with a special concoction of amino acids, they live longer than your average mouse. The study from Italy found that a supplemental mixture of branched-chain amino acids, specifically leucine, isoleucine, and valine, gave the mice the longer life. Whether it works for humans, well...

      Our Cellular Clock of Aging

      by
      Like cats, human cells have a finite number of lives. After dividing a certain number of times they change shape, slow their pace, and eventually stop dividing, a phenomenon called “cellular senescence”. Biologists know that a cellular clock composed of structures at the chromosome end known as telomeres records how...

      Is the Fountain of Youth in Bile?

      by
      Research from Concordia University may have brought the quest for longer life closer. The research is the the first to identify the role of a bile acid, called lithocholic acid (LCA), in extending the lifespan of normally aging yeast. “Our findings imply that LCA extends longevity by targeting two different...
