A small clinical trial, which was conducted by a team of researchers led by Dr. Greg Fahy, has shown for the first time in humans that reversing biological age may be possible. The results of TRIIM are in The researchers spent a year running the Thymus Regeneration, Immunorestoration, and Insulin Mitigation (TRIIM) trial, which included…

Shift Bioscience is a company aiming to solve the problem of mitochondrial dysfunction, one of the hallmarks of aging, by repairing the aging mitochondria in our cells so that they work as if they were younger. Mitochondrial dysfunction is at the heart of aging The mitochondria are often called the powerhouses of cells, and they…

One of the biggest breakthroughs in biology in the last few decades has been the discovery of epigenetics. Rather than changing the genes themselves, epigenetics change how genes are expressed, allowing our cells to differentiate between their various types. However, the epigenetics of our cells change over time. There is some debate over how much…

A new clock that analyzes the age of the immune system may be the next big thing in aging biomarkers. Measuring the age of your immune system As we age, our immune systems begin to decline due to many factors, including the thymus shrinking and producing ever-fewer T cells, the ever-increasing chronic inflammation called “inflammaging”,…

Researchers at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health have discovered a new aging clock that can accurately determine both chronological and biological age in a wide variety of species. Aging and the nucleolus There are two kinds of age: chronological age, which is strictly the number of years that something has lived, and…

A new aging clock developed by Professor Steve Horvath and his research team takes measuring your biological age a step further and can accurately predict your future lifespan. The epigenetic clock As we age, our DNA experiences chemical changes called DNA methylation (DNAm); these changes are used as a way to measure age and are…
