life extension

(redirected from Prolongevity)

life extension

A general term for any manoeuvre intended to increase longevity and vitality. Life-extending activities include a healthy diet, smoking cessation, drinking alcohol in moderation, exercise and reduction in stress; life-extending modalities (e.g., Gerovital and Live Cell Therapy) are of dubious efficacy.

life extension

The prolongation of life with healthful practices, e.g., regular exercise, balanced diet, abstaining from tobacco, and limiting consumption of alcohol.
Synonym: age retardation; biomedical gerontology; experimental gerontology

However, the complexity of mammalian gut microbiota and the technical challenges in isolating specific "prolongevity" microbial variants limit the knowledge of the microbiota to taxonomic and metagenomic profiling.
This is likely because the establishment and maintenance of such prolongevity pattern of fatty acid composition allow to delay aging by enabling to sustain membrane fluidity and increase oxidative stress resistance [77, 80, 81].
Furthermore, an activation of the lipolysis of TAGs delays nematode aging because it increases the concentration of arachidonic acid, a polyunsaturated omega-6 fatty acid known to stimulate the prolongevity process of autophagy [81-86].
We identified 5 different KEGG pathways that were associated with the prolongevity effect of GNC (S.
In summary, in this study, we reported that GNC, which exhibits prolongevity activity, alleviated A[beta]-induced paralysis in C.

The genes which mediate the intracellular clearance through autophagy and the ubiquitin-proteasome system are also regulated by FOXO factors [40,44, 45]; thus, it can be suggested that FOXOs function as prolongevity factors.
To evaluate whether GNC has prolongevity properties under normal conditions, we treated wild-type C.

Prolongevity will be the featured program for senior members of the community.
Supporters of "prolongevity" appeal to the work of investigators like Roy Walford and Michael Rose, suggesting we may be on the point of a breakthrough that could raise the maximum human life span from 120 years to 150 years or more.[11] Supporters of the NIA's traditional agenda believe that this new knowledge is not worth pursuing at the expense of the traditional goal of quality aging.
