The effect of biological age: Tips for slowing down the aging process

A new study wants to show that we are not gradually aging, but gradually – more than three decades. Proteins in the blood play an essential role.

Why do some people look thirty years old when they are forty? Genetic predisposition plays an important role, but lifestyle also has a huge impact on the aging process. A new study by American scientists from Stanford University now claims to have found Biological aging is not a creeping process, but it is occurring in full swing – specifically in the fourth, seventh and eighth decades of life.. These three ages are essential to biological aging because they bring about massive changes in the body, according to the researchers.

For the study, researchers at Stanford University analyzed the blood plasma of 4,263 people between the ages of 18 and 95 and examined it for 2,925 plasma proteins. They came to the conclusion that the number of proteins in blood plasma changed significantly in the 1930s, 1960s and 1970s. These “aging leaps” in the body will have an effect on disease progression, among other things. “This new approach to studying aging has led to the identification of unexpected signs and pathways that could provide potential targets for age-related disease,” the study says.

Rejuvenating supplements? A balanced diet eliminates the need for grains

Urban researcher, Professor Sven Voelbl, explains the role of proteins in the body in a video interview: “Proteins are the basic building blocks of life, that is, we live through proteins.” And he adds: “In the study, about 3000 proteins were examined and it was observed that there are only these trends. Proteins are no longer available in good quantities, which is why there is a kind of irregular aging. ” Voelbl says genes can change through our behavior. According to him, just a few minutes a day should be enough for your rejuvenation or for living longer. He sees the solution in nutritional supplements. “I myself take a mixture of vital substances every morning, getting all the vitamins, minerals, enzymes, probiotic bacteria and fiber,” Voilbl says. In this way, metabolic processes are optimally supported, which can slow down the aging process.

According to US scientists, we are aging particularly rapidly in three stages of life. But there are measures aimed at countering this.

The extent to which it makes sense to take nutritional supplements with a balanced diet is controversial. The German Dietetic Association criticizes this and quotes, among other things, Professor Mark Beringer of Fulda University of Applied Sciences, who advises against taking nutritional supplements and demands that we change our diet and lifestyle:The body contains many endogenous antioxidants that we can activate through exercise, sports, avoiding obesity, and eating a varied diet.According to Beringer. According to the current state of knowledge, healthy adults obtain all the important nutrients by eating a diet that is as varied and natural as possible. According to the DGE, only end products that contain a lot of artificial sugar and salt should be eaten very rarely. Meat and other animal products in moderation On the other hand, fresh fruits and vegetables, legumes, herbs, grains, seeds and whole grain products should be eaten frequently.
