What Metabolism Reveals About Aging and Mortality

woemn hgh doctor 300x199Lifespan length has proven to be a continuing source of mystery. Why do some people enjoy living for decades and others are not so fortunate? Up until recently, the answer has been elusive. However, based on a recent study of a lowly worm, research scientists have leaped one giant step closer to understanding longevity: METABOLISM. Their report in the American Chemical Society's (ACS) Journal of Proteome Research details how the metabolic profile of worms can accurately predict how long they can live, and that middle age is a particularly important turning point. The importance of this study is two-fold. In...

Telomeres: The Overlooked Key to Solving the Puzzle of Aging

unnamed 300x137Telomeres: The Overlooked Key to Solving the Puzzle of Aging Telomeres. Until recently, this word was seldom mentioned in anti-aging circles. Research scientists have been aware of telomeres since the 1930s when DNA researchers determined that telomeres played a role in stabilizing the ends of chromosomes. However, it was not until the early 1980s that more information was uncovered and the anatomy and functions of telomeres became well-known. But the role this fascinating substance plays in the battle against aging and other severe diseases was still not recognized. Recent research, however, has changed the entire equation, and the importance of...

Scientists Bold Prediction: We’ll Soon Extend Life Well Beyond 120”

Molecue links 300x156Silicon Valley has turned its attention to discovering a cure for a universal disease: AGING. They are pouring billions into biotech firms to attempt to ‘hack the code’ of life, despite concerns about potential unintended consequences. In Palo Alto, the heart of Silicon Valley, hedge fund manager Joon Yun is doing a basic calculation. According to US social security data, the probability of a 25-year-old dying before age 26 is 0.1%. If we could keep that risk constant throughout life instead of it rising due to age-related disease, the average person would live 1,000 years. Yun finds the prospect intriguing...

Metformin: The First Effective Anti-Aging Drug?

HGH doc pondering treatment options 300x200Is Metformin An Anti-Aging Drug? Possibly! Keep Reading and Learn the Facts About This Exciting Breakthrough The first clinical trial of a potential “anti-aging, life-extension” drug - metformin anti-aging, is now underway. The American Federation for Aging Research (AFAR) has jumped through numerous bureaucratic hoops to receive approval for the study from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The study is called Targeting Aging with Metformin Trial (TAME) and is currently seeking funding to keep the trial going. Dr. Nir Barzilai is the director of the Insititute for Aging Research at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in the Bronx....
