Human Skin Cells De-Aged by 30 Years?!
Dear Longevity Insider,
Anil Bajnath MD here with your Monday roundup.
Wouldn’t you love to erase 30 years off your face?
No worries. I’m not talking about some magic skin cream, botox injections, or cosmetic surgery. I’m talking about pure science.
Look, I know how much you care about your longevity. It’s the foundation of our Longevity Insider HQ Family.
Here’s what I’ve learned about you so far:
- You want to look younger and minimize the wrinkles.
- You want to feel younger with all-day-long energy.
- You want to think faster with a sterling silver memory bank.
And if we must be frank, you’d prefer to have these qualities for as long as possible. After all, there’s no point in looking younger if you feel old and decrepit. There’s no point in having all-day-long energy, if your joints are in pain. There’s no point in having an amazing memory if you don’t have the energy to get up and do something productive with your strong brain.
Longevity isn’t one tiny thing. Think of it as a puzzle with a million little pieces that create the perfect life you’ve always dreamed of… golfing with your buddies, family vacations with your grandkids, a sharp wit that everyone envies.
You want quality of life for as long as possible. So here’s one piece of the puzzle…
Human Skin Cells Age in Reverse by 30 Years?
According to a new study, scientists have managed to “de-age” human skin cells by 30 years, which the team hopes will reduce the effects of aging in humans.
Dr Diljeet Gill, a postdoctoral researcher in Prof Reik's lab at the Babraham Institute, adds:
"Our results represent a big step forward in our understanding of cell reprogramming… We have proved that cells can be rejuvenated without losing their function and that rejuvenation looks to restore some function to old cells… The fact that we also saw a reverse of ageing indicators in genes associated with diseases is particularly promising for the future of this work."
The results from this study (albeit impressive) represent a fraction of the bigger longevity picture. In fact, scientists and most doctors would say that this is the #1 cause of early aging. To your longevity, Anil Bajnath MD
If you want to know the key to longevity, we must address the root instead of just the symptoms.
