Specifically, the report shows that protein drinks after aerobic exercise increases the training effect after six weeks, when compared to carbohydrate drinks. Additionally, this study suggests […]

UCSF.edu – Scientists from UCSF are reporting several studies showing that psychological stress leads to shorter telomeres – the protective caps on the ends of chromosomes that are a measure of cell age and, thus, health. The findings also suggest that exercise may prevent telomere shortening. The NIMH-funded team focused on three groups: post-menopausal women […]

And it seems to benefit older men the most, the findings show. The authors base their findings on almost 1,850 elderly (65+) Taiwanese people who were living independently […]

ACS.org – Scientists are reporting the first evidence that consumption of natural polyphenols extracted from Fuji red apples extends the average lifespan of test animals, and does so by 10 percent. The new results, obtained with fruit flies – stand-ins for humans in hundreds of research projects each year – bolster similar findings on apple […]

IDW-online.de – 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, according to Professor Dr. Michael Ristow’s team along with Japanese colleagues from universities in Oita and Hiroshima (the teams used two independent approaches). The research team presents its […]

BU.edu – Regular consumption of red wine polyphenols throughout life helps to prevent the decline in vascular health and exercise capacity that comes with aging, according to a recent animal study. The endothelium is the inner lining of our blood vessels. The normal functions of endothelial cells include enabling coagulation, platelet adhesion and immune function. […]
