Adults Can Slow Down Their Aging Through a Specific Diet Strategy

Adults Can Slow Down Their Aging Through a Specific Diet Strategy

Here’s one sad aspect of life that each and every one of us needs to be fully aware of: life is short, and none of us has eternal youth. Until ChatGPT ever tells us the secret to how to have eternal life, all we can do is look for natural ways of slowing down the aging process.

Jokes aside, for now! A new study that SciTechDaily tells us about reveals that there is a way to slow down aging, even if you’re a healthy adult while relying only on a specific diet. 

Calorie restriction could be the key

The new research indicates that calorie restriction has proven to slow down aging in the case of animals. Furthermore, during a human randomized trial, the same method indicates that biological aging is slowing its pace as well.

The CALERIE intervention is the star of the show. It was able to slow the pace of aging measured from the blood DNA methylation of participants and while using the algorithm known as the DunedinPACE (Pace of Aging, Computed from the Epigenome).

Surely there are plenty of folks out there who are still skeptical about the study, and you know what? That’s ok! But as soon as you read what Daniel Belsky has to say, the senior author of the new study and also an epidemiology professor at Columbia Mailman School, perhaps you’ll change your mind a bit:

In worms, flies, and mice, calorie restriction can slow biological processes of aging and extend healthy lifespan,

Our study aimed to test if calorie restriction also slows biological aging in humans.

Responsible for the new research is an international team of scientists led by the Columbia Aging Center at Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health.

The new study was published in Nature
