  • Telomerase Modulators

    It is true to say that telomeres and telomerase are one of the hottest areas of anti-aging research, but it is also true that the misconceptions and confusion in this area are significant. Here, I will assume that you are already familiar with telomeres and the general function of telomerase. In any case, I will discuss the supplements, nutrients and strategies that can help improve the overall function of telomerase and so result in healthy telomeres, and thus, healthy DNA. This coul...
  • Antioxidant Extends Lifespan

    The National Institute on Aging (NIA) announced the final results of testing from three government labs regarding the patented antioxidant nordihydroguaiaretic acid (NDGA). All three labs agreed that NDGA extended lifespan by a resounding 12% in mice (1) (see Figure 1).Figure 1: The survival plots for m...

  • mTOR Inhibitors in Cancer, Aging and Health

    mTOR Inhibitors in Cancer, Aging and Health Marios Kyriazis MD When it comes to the regulation of aging mechanisms, one important molecule which has widespread effects is mTOR. This is the acronym of the mechanistic (previously also called ‘mammalian’) Target Of Rapamycin. It is a protein kinase which regulates the proliferation and development of cells. mTOR acts as a central controller in signalling pathways which regulate the survival and function of the cell...
