(ETX Studio) – It would be possible to reduce its biological life by three years with a diet and lifestyle that balanced DNA methylation in just eight weeks, according to a clinical trial.
Three years younger at eight weeks. The promise appears straight out of a pamphlet promoting the benefits of the diet. However it is the result of a Clinical test Conducted by the Helfgott Research Institute, with assistance from the Genome Analysis Laboratory of the Yale University Center. Researchers say a rapid lifestyle change coupled with a healthy diet could renew biological life, according to the researchers’ measure Horvath watch, Most in three years.
These new habits will help balance DNA methylation, and are useful for researchers to assess biological age. This term helps describe the accumulation of chronic disease, the breakdown of some cells, tissues, and organs, in short, the aging of the body.
To measure the effect of the change in lifestyle habits, the researchers followed 43 men between the ages of 50 and 72. For 8 weeks, they changed their diet, sleep, exercised, relaxed, and consumed probiotics and phytonutrients. All this is under the supervision of specialists. As a result, the participants “regenerated” on average approximately two years (1.96 years) and their biological age was three years younger than the control group.
“The combined intervention program is designed to target a specific biological mechanism called DNA methylation,” Dr. Kara Fitzgerald said in a statement. “Dietary and lifestyle practices, including specific nutrients and food compounds […] Capable of inducing such an effect on DNA methylation patterns we know how to predict aging and age-related disease. “
