The idea that speeding up metabolism is helpful for losing weight fast is mostly a false myth. This is what the science shows us.
Excess homocysteine poses a health risk to the cardio- and cerebrovascular system because it stimulates the development of atherosclerosis, increasing the likelihood of stroke and heart attack. If action is taken early, by changing dietary habits and through supplements, levels can be normalized. With a double advantage
There are several methods for measuring oxidative stress. Knowing one’s “level” of oxidative stress can be useful in a preventive and healthy aging perspective
Telomere length is considered one of the hallmarks of aging, but new research is revealing that their “measurement” seems to be indicative more of health status than biological age. As Valentina Bollati, associate professor in the Department of Clinical and Community Sciences and the Epiget Lab at Milan State University, explains.
The biological age of an organism is a significant indicator of health status and susceptibility to illness. Individual organs and tissues may undergo different aging processes, but the real challenge is to define a biological clock that applies to the whole organism, and that translates into parameters that are easy to monitor and act upon.
Measuring chronic latent inflammation is not as simple as measuring acute inflammation associated with infection or disease. There are different types of tests and markers, with different sensitivities. Here is a brief guide to get your bearings
A study published in Cell suggests this. Researchers investigated the effects on the intestinal flora from sweeteners such as aspartame, saccharin, stevia or sucralose, and also analyzed their effects on blood glucose
Fermented foods are showing beneficial health properties. Here are a few, for every palate
Focusing only on treating chronic diseases when they occur is not a sustainable strategy. A change of perspective is needed: to invest, first, in healthy longevity. This is the philosophy of SoLongevity and other major players in Geroscience, who sign a manifesto of intent in Lancet Healthy Longevity
After menopause, women’s cardiovascular risk is quite comparable to that of men, yet it is underestimated even by health professionals
Many metabolic processes in the body produce free radicals that, under balanced conditions, are neutralized by antioxidants. Some external agents, however, as well as certain habits and diseases, increase the production of free radicals excessively, and generate a state of oxidative stress that is dangerous to health
SoLongevity Nutraceuticals is launching a new product, developed to regularize homocysteine and glutathione levels, promote blood vessel health, support cell energy metabolism, and contribute to cardio and neurovascular wellness
