Keeping young forever might be the dream of many people. How to effectively slow down the body's aging process and maintain energetic has puzzled generations. To this end, lots of studies have been carried out. Just take a look at the following findings!

1. Prev Med: High level of physical activity can make you 9 years younger.

Despite a lot of efforts being made, aging is still a problem that is unstoppable. Recently, researchers from Brigham Young University have said that we may hope to slow down the aging inside the cell, but only if we are willing to sweat, and the related research findings were published on the international magazine Preventive Medicine.

One of the researchers Tucker said that just because you are 40 years old doesn't mean you are 40 years old biologically. People usually looks younger than their actual age, and the more we exercise, the more biological young we look like and the slower the aging process takes place. Researchers found that telomeres in the body cells of people who continued to perform high levels of physical activity were significantly longer than those in the meditation lifestyle and those with moderate levels of activity. Telomere is the protein cap-like structure at the end of the chromosome. It is directly related to age and is just like the body clock of our body. Each time when the cell divides, a small amount of telomeres will be lost, so it gets shorter and shorter as we get old.

Larry Tucker, a professor of sports science, found that telomeres in high-level sports populations have a nine-year biological aging advantage over telomeres in a sedentary population, which is seven years longer than the telomeres of moderately active populations. Considering this, women should take 30 minutes of jogging per day (40 minutes per day for men) in five days a week. If you want to see the real difference in the body's slowing down of aging, it doesn't seem to work without exercise, and we must always exercise regularly at high levels.

2. Studies have found that anti-aging peptides can restore youthfulness

Anti-aging treatment may be a step closer. In a recent study, the researchers revealed how a peptide destroys cells that play a role in aging, reverses skin loss, kidney damage, and mouse weakness. This study describes how peptides block the level of protein called FOXO4 that increases senescent cells.

Aging cells accumulate with age, and studies have shown that they can contribute to the aging process by causing damage to adjacent cells and impairing tissue function. By blocking FOXO4 with peptides, the research team has been able to restore programmed cell death or apoptosis in senescent cells. According to Peter de Keizer, senior author & an aging researcher at the Erasmus University Medical Center in the Netherlands, this peptide can only cause cell death in aging cells.

3. Food Chem: Eat more mushrooms to fight aging, cancer and neurodegenerative diseases.

Recently, researchers from the Pennsylvania State University found that mushrooms may contain two antioxidants of unusually high levels. Antioxidants are thought to be helpful in fighting aging and promoting health. Related research was published in the international magazine Food Chemistry.

In this study, the researchers found that mushrooms contain higher levels of ergothione and glutathione, both of which are important antioxidants that vary widely in different types of mushrooms. There is no doubt that mushrooms are the highest source of these two antioxidants. When the body uses these foods to make energy, it also induces oxidative stress, because in this process some free radicals are produced, and free radicals are often some oxygen atoms containing unpaired electrons that can induce cellular damage.

By supplementing the body with antioxidants, the body can be protected from damage caused by oxidative stress. Researcher Beelman said that the theory of free radicals on aging has existed for a long time. When we oxidize food to produce energy, it produces some free radicals (by-products), many of which are toxic, and the body has many important mechanisms that can control free radicals, such as oxidants. When only accumulated to a certain amount, free radicals can induce damage to the body, and these injuries are often directly related to a variety of diseases, such as aging, cancer, coronary heart disease and Alzheimer's disease.

4. GeroScience: Limit calorie intake to fight aging.

It has been rumored that reducing the amount of food consumed can reduce the rate of metabolism and prolong life. Until recently, this statement has gradually become a mainstream trend. Many large anti-aging themes have discussed fasting as a scientific content, while Silicon Valley elites have called moderate fasting "biohackers."

In an article recently published in the journal GeroScience, researchers from the University of Oklahoma presented new insights in this area. The article, "Role of DNA methylation in the dietary restriction mediated cellular memory," reveals the underlying mechanism of several benefits of fasting, that is, fasting leads to a decrease in the level of methylation of specific gene promoters, which in turn increases the level of expression of the gene and ultimately has a permanent effect on the memory of the cells.
