Assigning an unknown function to a known reproductive hormone Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) in Longevity: FSH-based therapy for aging-associated diseases and Lifespan extension: FSH increases NMN/NAD levels, decreases interaction of DBC1 with PARP1, increases PARP1 activity, promotes DNA repair, augments tolerance against radiation, cancer, and aging, via down-regulation of its target gene, 8/August/2018, 11.43 pm

A sweet way to lengthen lifespan (too good to be true): Polysaccharide-based therapy for aging-associated diseases and Lifespan extension: Astragalus polysaccharide, a polysaccharide isolated from mushroom astragalus membraneous, increases NMN/NAD levels, decreases interaction of DBC1 with PARP1, increases PARP1 activity, promotes DNA repair, augments tolerance against radiation, cancer and aging, via down-regulation of its target gene, 28/July/2018, 10.48 pm

A sweet way to extend lifespan-too good to be true: Polysaccharide-based therapy for lifespan and healthspan extension: Astragalus polysaccharide, isolated from astragalus membraneous, inhibits the expression of Ribosomal protein S6 kinase 1 (p70S6 Kinase) and extends mammalian lifespan, 26/July/2018, 12.38 am

What they say?  A study from the Institute of Healthy Ageing, Centre for Diabetes and Endocrinology, Department of Medicine, University College London, London WC1E 6JJ, UK shows that “Ribosomal […]
