Can Your Age Influence the Epigenetic Effects of Exercise?

We all know the extensive benefits of exercise: work out to stave off disease, improve mental acuity, lose weight, reduce stress, and so on. But even with all these benefits, there are still some questions surrounding the molecular causes that underlie them. Epigenetics has been particularly helpful in gaining new insights into the wide range … Continue reading Can Your Age Influence the Epigenetic Effects of Exercise?

A Super Brief and Basic Explanation of Epigenetics for Total Beginners

Epigenetics, as a simplified definition, is the study of biological mechanisms that will switch genes on and off. What does that mean? Well, if you are new to this whole thing, we first need a quick crash course in biochemistry and genetics before learning exactly what is epigenetics: Cells are fundamental working units of every … Continue reading A Super Brief and Basic Explanation of Epigenetics for Total Beginners

Epigenetic Changes Due to Aging May Lead to Cancer

Throughout our lives, all cells in our bodies experience a normal life cycle of growth, maturity, and death. During this time, our cells normally experience damage to DNA by normal functions of the metabolism, or exposure to certain environmental factors like UV light. Ordinarily, our body is able to repair the damage done to the … Continue reading Epigenetic Changes Due to Aging May Lead to Cancer

Could We Reverse Alzheimer’s Symptoms by Restoring Epigenetic Balance?

Fascinating new research out of Drexel University suggests that restoring balance to certain epigenetic enzymes might reinstate memory and lead us closer to a potential therapy for Alzheimer’s disease. This devastating type of dementia causes issues with memory, cognition, and behavior. Could epigeneticshelp reverse symptoms and bring back cognitive abilities in those with Alzheimer’s? The … Continue reading Could We Reverse Alzheimer’s Symptoms by Restoring Epigenetic Balance?

Slow metabolism linked to longevity

When we use the word “metabolism,” we are usually referring to resting metabolic rate, which is the amount of energy (calories) that the body requires per day for its basic functions at rest. Most people believe that it is desirable to raise their metabolism, because they will burn more calories and consequently lose weight. Having … Continue reading Slow metabolism linked to longevity
