Anti-aging therapies targeting senescent cells: Facts and fiction

Anti-aging in a pill?

Anti-aging in a pill?

Are we there yet?

Science is moving along rapidly trying to discover the fountain of youth by exploring ever more promising anti-aging therapies. One of the theories about what contributes to aging involves the damage caused by senescent cells (permanently damaged cells that lose their ability to divide and accumulate with age) to surrounding tissue. The next step is to find a compound that removes these damaged cells as well as a strategy to rejuvenate existing tissue.

Evidence backs transposon theory of aging

This theory of aging involves little things called transposons.

What on earth is a transposon?

According to Wikipedia, a transposon  or transposable element (TE or transposon) is a DNA sequence that can change its position within a genome.

How is it involved in aging?

The so called ‘jumping gene’ can cause havoc by inserting itself elsewhere in the genome, potentially causing life-span reducing chaos.

What are possible interventions?

Restricting calories and gene manipulation have both shown to dramatically increase life span in lab animals. Calorie restriction mimetics such as resveratrol are a potent anti aging tool for this reason.

8 week results on Retin A – does it work?

What are the results on Retin A?results on Retin A

The benefits of topical tretinoin on human photodamaged skin were first observed in middle-aged women treated for persistent acne. These women described smoother, less wrinkled skin in addition to the clearing of acne. There were clear improvements in skin texture, wrinkling, pigmentation, and sallowness.

If, like me, you have not only sun damaged and wrinkled skin but also suffer from the occasional break out and large pores, this is great news.

So I decided that a Tretinoin preparation would be a sensible product to include in my personal anti-aging kit. I bought a generic brand (might as well save money wherever possible) Tretinoin gel 1.0% on the 6th of October. Because I picked a higher strength version, I only applied the gel every third night initially.

Sleep is one of the most powerful, effective and cheapest anti aging tools you have at your disposal.

How much and how well you sleep has a tremendous impact on how you approach life.

How much fun you have. How you react to all the little irritations that happen in a day, to all the demands life throws at you.

Without sleep, you literally start to die and increase your risk of viral infections, weight gain, diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, mental illness, and mortality.

So don’t treat sleep as an afterthought. You will miss out on this essential recovery process and fast forward aging. In short, sleep aids in:
