Scientists said that there is a way to maintain health and youth as long as possible. Scientists have found a vitamin, which was already known to boost metabolism, that they claim can restore the body’s ability to regenerate and repair itself, and hence delay aging.
The fact is that youth directly depends on the length of the tips of chromosomes (telomeres of stem cells).
Since the length of the tips of the chromosomes is responsible for the rate of aging, therefore, for those people whose telomeres are short, their old age will catch up faster and earlier.
However, everything can be corrected with the help of molecular interference.
Geneticists, using the enzyme telomerase, have learned to increase telomeres in length.
The enzyme telomerase lengthens the tail of the chromosome, to the desired size and because of this, a person preserves his youth much more.
And also, the international study, published in the journal Science, detailed the potential of a vitamin called nicotinamide riboside in delaying the ageing process.
The regenerative capacity of cells and organs deteriorates with age. The “powerhouses” of cell function — called mitochondria — lose energy over time and prevent cells from regenerating as they once did.
Research teams from Switzerland, Canada and Brazil studied how these changes occur over time. The role of mitochondria in metabolism has already been identified, but the scientists were able to demonstrate for the first time that healthy, functioning mitochondria were important for stem cell function.
