A study led by the University of Sydney in Australia has found that gradually increasing muscle strength through activities such as weightlifting improves cognitive function. The study was conducted in collaboration with the Centre for Healthy Brain Aging at the University of New South Wales and the University of Adelaide. The results have been published […]

Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute scientists and their collaborators at the University of Cambridge have created a new technique that simplifies the production of human brain and muscle cells allowing millions of functional cells to be generated in just a few days. The results published in Stem Cell Reports open the door to producing a diversity […]

More and more Americans are demanding food free of synthetic chemicals. But tests by the U.S. Department of Agriculture found that nearly 70 percent of samples of 48 types of conventionally grown produce were contaminated with pesticide residues. The USDA found a total of 178 different pesticides and pesticide breakdown products on the thousands of […]

Aging in humans (and animals) can be seen as either an inevitable process of wear and tear or as an inherent biological program by which the lifespan of each species is more or less predetermined. Recent research has shown that DNA methylation, an epigenetic modification which alters how DNA is read and expressed without altering […]

When a person is severely burned it is a serious skin injury. Typically the treatment involves grafting a layer of skin from a healthy part of the body to the injured area. Once the grafted skin heals which can take some time there is usually very unsightly scarring which the person has to live with […]

Life Code supplements are formulated to improve the quality of life and increase lifespan. An important study has just been released showing that one of the many ingredients (Astaxathin) in our nutraceutical supplement EpiMax upregulates the FOX03 longevity gene. We use a natural Astaxathin derived from algae which includes other lipid soluble anti-oxidants and synergistic […]

UC San Francisco scientists identified a previously unknown pool of blood making stem cells in the lungs capable of restoring blood production when the stem cells of the bone marrow, previously thought to be the principal site of blood production, are depleted. Using video microscopy in the living mouse lung, the scientists have revealed that […]

A simple tablespoon daily of coconut oil could promote weight loss and improve cardiovascular health, reveals a new clinical study. Coconut oil was once considered a “bad fat” since it contains saturated fatty acids, however it has a different chemical structure than saturated fats from animals or those that are synthetically produced such as margarine […]

A molecular key to aging of the blood and immune system has been discovered in new research conducted at UC San Francisco, raising hope that it may be possible to find a way to slow or reverse many of the effects of aging. The key is a link between the health of a rare population […]

Our blood stem cells generate around a thousand billion new blood cells every day. But the blood stem cells’ capacity to produce blood declines as we age. This leads to lowered immunity and other age related problems. Now for the first time, a research team at Lund University in Sweden has succeeded in rejuvenating blood […]
