Anti-Aging Breakthrough – Scientists Make Major Breakthrough In Reversing Aging

Anti-Aging Breakthrough – For centuries people have been talking about a Fountain of Youth and scientists have been trying to find ways to reverse the aging process. For decades and researchers at the University of Alabama at Birmingham have made mice look good by reversing age-related wrinkles and hair loss at the genetic level.

Anti-Aging Breakthrough


It’s like the Holy Grail today especially for hair loss because that’s something that affects many men and also many women. We don’t talk about it a lot with women but that seems like it’d be the Holy Grail truthfully and what these. These geneticists found was that gene that makes this age which is something in our mitochondria.

It’s this little organelle that’s in every single cell. It’s the powerhouse of ourselves. It’s what gives all of our cells energy and what they found was when you depleted that amount of DNA in that cell then you didn’t have energy. You got older within two weeks.

These mice had wrinkles and had less hair and then when you all of a sudden amped up that DNA expression in the mitochondria, they all of a sudden had no wrinkles and had more hair and the hair. The hair turned gray went back to turning dark. I mean that’s a breakthrough. That’s unbelievable and you know everybody is that business, in general, is huge but you’re talking about changing DNA.

Yeah, we had a conversation just before we went on and literally you were saying genetics play a big role. So that’s what they’re looking at but we’re talking about mice. Is it the same in mice as it is in humans, right? So I mean a lot of what we see today in medicine and human medicine is what we take away from animals. But it’s not always the same and of course, we always worry that if we start augmenting DNA expression. What effect does it have with other tissues, right? But we do know that mitochondria play a big role in cancer Alzheimer’s cardiovascular disease.

So this has far bigger implications than just skin aging and hair aging. It has implications for overall aging because there’s probably something happening with inflammation. That’s affecting all of these different organs.

This particular cell when you modify the genes. It regulates that and to keep it simple I guess that we’re looking at these findings. Now, so how they help future age-related interventions in humans for example right. So one-day people might not be coming to me for lasers. For their wrinkles or neural module for their wrinkles or fillers per se, they may be coming in four shots to basically enhance their DNA. So DNA you know enhancement shots there’s always a place for that but in our space, there are also people that like to still they still have to your point genetically. They don’t have a strong chin or they don’t have strong cheekbones, so they come in to beautify to enhance things that they don’t really have so I think there’s always gonna be a place in the space of cosmetics and aesthetics but as far as for diabetes as far as cardiovascular disease Alzheimer’s.

I think what it may mean for those people is that you don’t rely on all these drugs to slow down those processes. Maybe people will be getting a some type of infusion to alter their DNA instead of drugs to treat their Alzheimer’s, cardiovascular disease and diabetes or arthritis or things like that that come along and and just affect you in terms of but you know degrading your body degrading as you get older there’s a lot of potentials.


I mean we’re a little ways away though aren’t we, we are I mean this is just being tested. They just found the gene that’s responsible for this. It’s gonna take a lot more to figure out the implications of administering. This is the entire milieu of the entire human system in the body right and what impacts it may have because there’s always side effects with everything we do and so they need to still explore.
