Cellular senescence is a physiological process through which, in response to stress, cells stop dividing but don’t die. Some senescent cells linger indefinitely in tissues by upregulating pro-survival mechanisms called senescent cell anti-apoptotic pathways (SCAPs) and downregulating pro-apoptotic pathways [1–3]. Accumulation of lingering senescent cells occurs with aging and can impair tissue function [4]. This connection to unhealthy aging occurs in part because senescent cells produce chemical mediators, collectively known as senescence-associated secretory profile (SASP), that may disrupt tissue function and immune responses and affect health [5,6]. Maintaining balanced senescence is important because, although senescent cells can have undesirable actions, cellular

As scientists, medical practitioners, biohackers, and health-conscious creators we are deeply passionate about the latest studies and techniques to help optimize the quality of your life. When we find research that excites us we love sharing it with you. Check out this 2023 study showing how short and simple exercise breaks can help to prevent the negative effects of prolonged sitting on cognitive function.Exercise Breaks During Prolonged Sitting Supports Cognitive PerformanceSedentary behavior is associated with poorer cognitive performance and a higher risk of cognitive decline [1,2]. Prolonged sitting, which is common for anyone with a desk job, is one of

Senescence is a term that derives from the Latin word senex, meaning senior or of old age. The word senescence is often used to refer to biological aging and the deterioration that comes with getting older. It takes this meaning when it is used to refer to a whole organism—organismal senescence. But senescence is also a process that occurs at the cellular level. Cellular senescence is a physiological process through which, in response to stress, cells stop dividing but don’t die. Instead, senescent cells linger indefinitely, interfering with normal tissue function. Cellular senescence is one of the main contributors to the

Cognitive performance is a dynamic aspect of brain function that relies on the efficiency of neurobiological processes and the structural integrity of the brain. Our mind performs at its best when every element of the cognitive machinery is working optimally.But we all know that’s not always the case. Our mental performance can be affected by all sorts of health and lifestyle factors such as stress, quality of sleep, physical activity, and diet. So we can easily find ourselves not being able to cope with the mental demands we’re faced with. That’s where brain supplements, or nootropics, come in.What Are Nootropics?The

When we find research that excites us we love sharing it with you. Check out this 2023 study showing how dietary magnesium is related to larger brain volumes and fewer white matter lesions as we age.Magnesium Intake Is Associated with Larger Brain VolumesAs we age, the brain gradually loses volume due to structural changes in both gray and white matter. This natural process of brain atrophy can contribute to age-related cognitive decline. Strategies

Cellular senescence is one of the twelve Hallmarks of Aging [1]; it is a characteristic of getting older in most organisms (including humans). Fisetin is one of a small group of compounds called senolytics that researchers are studying for countering cellular senescence.Senescence is a cellular stress response characterized by a permanent state of growth arrest (i.e., cells stop dividing but don’t die) and the production of chemical mediators that influence tissue health. With aging, senescent cells can linger in tissues and gradually accumulate, promoting tissue dysfunction, unhealthy aging, and age-related health decline [2,3].Senescent cells can be selectively eliminated with senolytics.
