Foods and Supplements May Slow Biological Aging

Accelerated biological aging, previously seen as an inevitable process, is increasingly understood to be modifiable.

This aging is marked by deteriorating organ and tissue function and an increase in diseases. Key aspects of aging include disruptions in nutrient-sensing pathways, cellular aging, mitochondrial dysfunction, and cognitive impairment among others. Recent research suggests that diet and natural products can positively influence these aging processes.

For instance, certain nutrients and supplements, like vitamin D and omega-3 fatty acids, are known to support cellular metabolism, reduce oxidative stress, and enhance immune function, which may help delay the onset of age-related decline and diseases.

Furthermore, maintaining adequate levels of essential nutrients like zinc is crucial for promoting longevity and a healthier life span.

The strategic combination of various nutrients can synergize to enhance their anti-aging effects, supporting healthier aging at the cellular level.
