  • Study Shows Dietary Supplement Reverses Vascular Aging In Mice

    March 23 (UPI) -- A supplement containing an enzyme helped reverse the effects of vascular aging in mice, offering hope for humans, according to new research. Biologists at Penn Medicine, Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts Institute of Technology showed that lowered levels of SIRT1 decrease blood-vessel density and blood flow, and that adding the molecule can reverses the effects of vascular aging. The findings were published Thursday in the journal Cell. "This study tells us that the loss of SIRT1 is a primary reason why our ability to exercise and receive its benefits diminish as we age," Dr. Zoltan Pierre Arany, an associate professor of Cardiovascular Medicine in the Perelman School of Medicine at Penn, said in a press release.

  • Study Shows Vitamin A Deficiency Detrimental To Stem Cells

    According to a new study from the German Cancer Research Center, deficiencies in vitamin A can be detrimental to blood stem cells. These specialized cells in the skin, gut, or blood have a relatively short lifespan and require constant replenishment. In 2008, researchers discovered a group of special stem cells in the bone marrow that remain dormant most of the time and only become active to fight bacterial or viral infections, heavy blood loss or as a reaction to chemotherapy.
