A genetic variant very common in centenarians appears to have the ability to restore the function of certain heart cells, improving overall organ function and turning back the hands of the biological clock
Homocysteine, a little-known cardiovascular risk factor
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
Why Invest in Longevity for Health, Quantum Healthy Longevity
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
What is oxidative stress, really?
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
CardioAge, a Next-Generation Supplement for Cardio and Neurovascular Wellness
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
Horvath’s Clock, the First “Universal” Biological Clock
Certain epigenetic mechanisms underlie the aging processes in many mammalian species, including humans. This is the basis of the watch of Steve Horvath, a pioneer in biological age research
Urolithin A Promotes ‘Maintenance’ of Mitochondria and Muscles
An American study measured the effects of urolithin A supplementation on muscle endurance and mitochondrial health. The results suggest that the substance aids a process called mitophagy, by which cells replace damaged mitochondria
How long can a human being actually live?
A new mathematical model recalculates the theoretical maximum human lifespan, bringing it up to 150 years
Is there such a thing as a longevity diet? And what is the optimal fasting period?
There are many studies that are trying to define the optimal eating style to increase the number of years lived healthy. Much of the research focuses on intermittent fasting to determine what the best time window is. Exploring this world is a review by Italian scientist Valter Longo in Cell.
What Inflammation Really Is. And Why It Promotes Cancers and Other Diseases
Once seen only as helpful and protective, we now know that inflammation can contribute to the development of numerous diseases
The risk of disease? Your inflammatory clock tells you
When it comes to cardiovascular disease, the age of our immune system matters more than age. Today, the iAge “inflammatory clock” allows us to estimate it. How does it work?
SoLongevity among the 5 start-ups selected by UK National Innovation Center for Ageing
SoLongevity is the only Italian company to join the National Innovation Center for Aging (N.I.C.A.) in the UK, one of the most advanced international realities in the world in basic and translational research on aging. Mission: to transform longevity medicine and technology into services for the general public.
The science of longevity: here’s what we know
115 years is the estimated intrinsic capacity of the human being to live. But how long we live, and how we live, does not depend solely on our genes. Epigenetic studies have shown that there are mechanisms that can repair DNA damage and increase longevity.
