      Omega-3 Supplements May Slow Aging

      Taking enough omega-3 fatty acid supplements to change the balance of oils in the diet could slow a key biological process linked to aging, new research suggests. The study showed that most overweight but healthy middle-aged and older adults who took omega-3 supplements for four months altered a ratio of...

      Zinc Deficiency Linked to Aging, Immune System Declines

      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

      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...

      Study Green Tea Boosts Brain to Aid Memory

      It has long been believed that drinking green tea is good for the memory. Now researchers have discovered how the chemical properties of green tea affect the generation of brain cells, providing benefits for memory and spatial learning. The research is published in Molecular Nutrition & Food Research. Professor Bai’s...

      Lithium a Fountain of Youth Close to Home

      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...

      Vitamin E Linked to Increase Life Expectancy in Men

      According to research from the University of Helsinki, Finland, Vitamin E may increase the life expectancy of certain groups of men. The study is published in the Age and Ageing Several large randomized trials of humans found that vitamin E supplementation does not reduce mortality. However, the average effect on...

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

      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

      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?

      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...

      A Little Exercise Goes a Long Way on Aging

      According to research from the UC San Francisco, a little exercise can elp buffer the effects of stress-induced cell aging. Vigorous physical activity for just 42 minutes over a 3-day period, similar to federally recommended levels, can protect individuals from the effects of stress by reducing its impact on telomere...

      Exercise During Middle Years Can Mean Better Health in Later Years

      According to researchers, women who survive to age 70 or older, those who regularly participated in physical activity during middle age appear more likely to be in better overall health. Researchers analyzed data from 13,535 participants. The women reported their physical activity levels in 1986, at an average age of...

      A Little Wine for Longevity

      Drinking up to half a glass of wine a day may boost life expectancy by five years—at least in men—suggests research published ahead of print in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health. The Dutch authors base their findings on a total of 1,373 randomly selected men whose cardiovascular health...
