Inflammaging, or chronic low-grade inflammation, is defined as a state of low-grade inflammation that can promote the onset of chronic diseases related to aging
Changes to the sleep-wake cycle can alter hormonal control over appetite and satiety, contributing to weight gain and increasing the risk of metabolic syndrome and diabetes
The microbiota is the collection of a great many microorganisms that inhabit our bodies, with which we maintain a relationship of mutual exchange: we provide them with the nutrients they need, while they perform physiological, metabolic and immunological functions important to our physical and mental well-being
The word metabolism, derived from a Greek word meaning “mutation,” denotes the set of chemical and biochemical transformation processes that food undergoes from the moment we ingest it
Aging is a physiological process whereby the various functions of a certain organism tend to progressively deteriorate over time. Although you cannot stop the hands of the clock, there are several steps you can take to ensure that you age as healthily as possible. Let’s see which ones
Dogs that eat only once a day seem to retain their cognitive abilities longer and generally have better health status
To function well, the immune system, and particularly its cellular components, need to maintain a proper energy balance
An increase in this amino acid in the blood, which may also be diet-dependent, increases the risk of several aging-related diseases
Those taking higher doses of magnesium have, on average, a higher gray mass volume and fewer white matter lesions. However, further studies will be needed to confirm these results
The idea that speeding up metabolism is helpful for losing weight fast is mostly a false myth. This is what the science shows us.
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
Certain foods are associated with lower levels of inflammation, as measured by specific markers such as C Reactive Protein. Here are what these “shield” foods are for our health.
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
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.
A diet rich in these foods increases the diversity of microorganisms in the gut microbiome and reduces inflammation.
The third chapter of our guide is about the criteria for evaluating a food supplement. What “good” characteristics should it have? From certifications to bioavailability to the production chain.
In the second article of our guide to food supplementation, we offer a list of questions to figure out what you really need
The first of a series of articles to guide you into the world of dietary supplements. It starts from basic: what we should be aware of before approaching the food supplements’ shelf in pharmacies and herbalists, or in the supermarket
Obesity is one of the main risk factors for the development of severe forms of Covid-19: according to the experts, chronic inflammation and an altered immune system are involved. Just as it does when you get older.
Sirtuins are special proteins triggered to preserve the cell life under risky environmental conditions by pausing the cell’s most wasteful activities. This mechanism can be used to counteract aging. Can the choice of certain foods help?
Pro-longevity nutrion demands a smart management of Glucose and Proteins metabolic level. Let’s understand which nutritional strategies are more effective and useful for an healthy ageing.
Understanding our metabolism to consciously nourish ourselves in order to build a long and healthy life.
It is known as inflammaging: a state of low grade but chronic inflammation, which damages the body. Studies have shown that it plays an important role in the onset of diseases associated with ageing and in the fragility of older people.
Yes, while ageing the reactions that occur in the body become less efficient. But through small interventions on nutrition and physical activity it is possible to stimulate it, stopping the aging process and reducing the risk of disease.
