Bonding your way to extend your lifespan and healthspan: Oxytocin,  a peptide hormone and neuropeptide known to play a role in empathy, generosity, child birth and so on, inhibits the expression of Ribosomal protein S6 kinase 1 (p70S6 Kinase) and extends mammalian life span, 13/April/2017, 11.25 pm

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 […]

Bonding your way to decrease blood pressure/sugar and extend lifespan: Oxytocin-based Lifespan and healthspan extension therapy: Oxytocin,  a peptide hormone and neuropeptide known to play a role in empathy, generosity, child birth and so on, decreases blood sugar and blood pressure levels and prolongs mammalian life span, via down regulation of angiotensin II type I receptor (AT1R), 13/April/2018, 7.09 am

Significance of the study: It has been shown earlier that antagonizing angiotensin II type I receptor (AT1R) expression may prolong mammalian life span. Further, it has been shown […]
