A new study suggests carriers of a genetic mutation in the serotonin 2B receptor may be protected from obesity and insulin resistance.
Drinking a cup of strong coffee an hour before exercise, especially in the afternoon, increases fat-burning.
A new study reviews the different aging processes that affect the brain and liver of rats. The findings also allowed the researchers to better understand general overall aging processes.
A new study report omega 3 and omega 6 unsaturated fatty acids are significantly decreased in the brains of people with Alzheimer's.
APOE4 increases the inflammatory response of human microglia while reducing cellular migration. The gene also impairs the metabolic activity of the immune cells. The findings show APOE4 has a profound impact on the basic functions of microglia.
CMS121 and J147, two drug candidates that improve memory and slow neurodegeneration associated with Alzheimer's disease, also slow aging in healthy, older mice. The compounds block damage to neurons caused by general aging and restore levels of specific molecules to those seen in younger animals.
