How to live longer: Follow these five steps to turn back the clock on your biological age by three years in just a few weeks.
AGEING can bring a slew of health issues, many of which can cut your life short by many years. However, according to a groundbreaking clinical trial, you can reduce your biological age by more than three years in just a few weeks.
The aging process is generally harmful to one’s health because the risk of getting a variety of chronic diseases rises with age. However, studies continue to show that you have a lot of control over your biological clock. A clinical experiment has revealed that by harmonizing DNA methylation, you can successfully reduce your biological age by more than three years in only eight weeks with food and lifestyle changes.
DNA methylation patterns, which reflect the buildup of damage and loss of function in our cells, tissues, and organs, have become a popular way for scientists to assess and track biological aging.
This deterioration is what causes age-related disorders.
The study, which was published on April 12, used a randomized controlled clinical trial with 43 healthy adult males aged 50 to 72.
Diet, sleep, exercise, and relaxation advice, as well as supplementary probiotics and phytonutrients, were all part of the eight-week treatment program, which resulted in a statistically significant reduction in biological age – nearly three years younger – when compared to controls.
The Helfgott Research Institute conducted the study independently, with laboratory help from Yale University Center for Genome Analysis, and the results were analyzed independently at McGill University and the National University of Natural Medicine.
“The combined intervention program was designed to target a specific biological mechanism called DNA methylation, and in particular the DNA methylation patterns that have been discovered as highly predictive of biological age,” said Kara Fitzgerald, ND, IFMCP, main author of the study.
“We believe that its tremendous impact was due to this focus. These first findings appear to be compatible with, and considerably expand upon, the few previous research that have looked into the possibility of biological age reversal. It’s also unique in that it uses a non-pharmaceutical nutritional and lifestyle approach, has a control group, and shows a significant reduction in age. We are currently recruiting volunteers for a larger study that will hopefully confirm our findings.”
