Calorie Restriction Induces Plasminogen Production to Protect Muscle Tissue – Fight Aging!

[ad_1] Researchers here identify a mechanism by which the practice of calorie restriction promotes muscle stem cell function, and thus repair and maintenance of muscle tissue. In animal studies calorie restriction is shown to produce both (a) a short-term effect associated with improved regeneration, and (b) a long-term effect in the sense of slowing … Read more

Methionine Restriction Extends Life in Flies – Fight Aging!

[ad_1] Methionine Restriction Extends Life in Flies A sizable fraction of the benefits to health and life span resulting from the practice of calorie restriction derive from regulatory systems that are triggered by nutrient sensing mechanisms focused on specific amino acids, primarily methionine. Thus a lowered dietary methionine intake produces health benefits even when … Read more

Assessing Markers of Cellular Senescence in the CALERIE Study of Calorie Restriction – Fight Aging!

[ad_1] The practice of calorie restriction, eating up to 40% fewer calories while structuring the diet to continue to obtain sufficient micronutrients, is well demonstrated to slow aging and extend life in short-lived species. It is thought that the primary mechanism for this effect is upregulation of the cellular maintenance process of autophagy, given … Read more
