Subject: Slow Aging by Eating Less
There's a multi-billion-dollar industry devoted to products that fight signs of aging, but moisturizers only go skin deep. Aging occurs deeper at a cellular level and scientists have found that eating less can slow this cellular process. Recent research published in Molecular & Cellular Proteomics offers one glimpse into how cutting calories impacts aging inside a cell. The researchers found that when ribosomes the cell's protein makers slow down, the aging process slows too. The decreased speed lowers production but gives ribosomes extra time to repair themselves.
- One cell part, the ribosome, is responsible for the production or synthesis of that necessary protein.
- Researchers have found a correlation between the aging process and the speed with which ribosomes work.
- If the ribosomes slow down it appears to give them more time to repair themselves
