Can We Turn Back the Clock on Aging?

At present, we may still be far away from turning back the clock so as to be able to avoid diseases and live longer – however this remains an exciting possibility.

Scientists have already reversed aging in mice, and research suggests reversing it in humans as well. Their goal is to develop a pill which rejuvenates cells while decreasing risks associated with ageing and its diseases.

Biological Age

A person’s biological age is determined by how old their cells are. This differs from their chronological age which is determined by how long they’ve been alive on Earth. Scientists use various techniques such as DNA methylation analysis and metabolite profiling to calculate this figure – these tests can predict lifespan and healthspan as well as assess risk of major age-related diseases such as dementia.

Biological age differs from chronological age in that it can change with each individual’s health; studies have demonstrated this trend by showing those living with chronic illnesses have higher biological ages than their healthy peers and that DNA methylation patterns used to calculate an individual’s biological age can also predict risk for chronic illness.

Studies have demonstrated that it may be possible to decrease one’s biological age through stress reduction and lifestyle modifications, including diet and exercise interventions as well as relaxation techniques. One such research paper published by Science Translational Medicine looked into whether participants could actually reverse their biological age by employing different approaches such as relaxation techniques, diet modification programs and relaxation therapies.

Scientists measured participants’ biological ages through various methods, such as plasma miRNA aging signatures and DNA methylation analysis. On average, men decreased their biological age by three years during this program – possibly due to reduced stress levels or better ability to handle physical challenges.

Researchers note that their data suggests a relationship between biological age and resilience; not just current health status – such as how quickly a person recovers from health challenges – and longevity and quality of life, making resiliency an important indicator for longevity and quality of life predictions. Therefore, molecular aging fingerprints might serve as superior indicators than standard measures currently utilized clinical practice.

Chronological Age

Chronological age refers to when you reach a specific milestone age and is the main way people assess how old you are. While it plays a part in predicting disease risk and mortality risks, it does not reveal anything about the state of internal aging processes.

As we age, our internal bodily processes slow down, making us appear older than we actually are. But scientists are now discovering that this trend can be reversed!

Researchers have recently made the incredible discovery that there is a correlation between chronological age and DNA methylation – the practice by which chemicals are added to our genetic code in order to make genes function better or worse, thus impacting how quickly we age – and DNA methylation levels. By studying DNA methylation patterns closely, researchers can predict your biological age accurately.

Researchers discovered in a recent study that people’s methylation levels were much lower than expected for their chronological ages, suggesting their biological age may have been younger than expected due to stress causing its levels to drop in the body.

Stress-free living and managing mental health effectively are crucial. You can do this through practicing meditation, getting enough restful sleep, exercising regularly and limiting processed food consumption – this will allow your mind and body to function at a younger pace while keeping you healthy.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) can also help reverse biological age by placing you in a room equipped with chambers that supply high concentrations of oxygen. Studies have revealed that HBOT helps reduce biological age of skin cells, making you appear younger. When combined with other anti-aging treatments such as mitochondrial repair and autophagy support, HBOT can accelerate reverse chronological aging faster.

Age-Related Diseases

Physical and mental changes associated with aging lead to age-related diseases that can cause substantial disability and create significant economic burden for patients, their families, and society. Such diseases include cardiovascular disease, musculoskeletal disorders such as arthritis and neurodegenerative conditions as well as cancer (Lubloy 2020).

Diana Jurk, Ph.D.’s Biology of Aging and Age-Related Diseases Laboratory is dedicated to understanding the molecular causes of aging and age-related diseases caused by cell dysfunction, including neurodegeneration, cardiovascular disease and metabolic conditions. They use novel mouse models, cutting-edge omics technologies (metabolomics/lipidomics), as well as cutting-edge imaging techniques like live cell microscopy to delve into these mechanisms underlying ageing/disease processes.

Senescent cells are one of the main contributors to aging and its related disease, being distinguished by a unique cell cycle arrest and pro-inflammatory phenotype. Recent studies have demonstrated that targeting these senescent cells could significantly extend mouse lifespan as well as decrease age-related pathology; offering hope of reverse aging by targeting these senescent cells directly.

Jurk’s research is focused on identifying key players and drug targets to disrupt the senescence pathway and reverse human aging by rejuvenating cells and eliminating age-related disease. His team hopes to develop therapeutic treatments capable of reversing this process and improving human health through rejuvenating cells and eliminating age-related illness.

Strategies have been devised to extend lifespan, including diet restrictions and pharmaceutical use. Unfortunately, these approaches have limitations that make them hard for general populations to apply effectively and they’re ineffective against many diseases associated with aging. A recent study identified six chemical compounds which when taken together can reverse cell aging and rejuvenate human cells; potentially leading to the discovery of an anti-ageing pill to restore healthy aging and extend lifespan globally.

Age-Reversing Treatments

Botox injections and light therapy may reduce fine lines and wrinkles or rejuvenate skin tissue; however, none of these techniques reverses the causes of cellular aging – only delaying symptoms rather than eliminating them completely. Harvard Medical School researchers recently developed a chemical cocktail that may turn back time on aging by renewing older cells in muscles, tissues, organs etc.

Scientists used advanced cell-based assays to identify molecules that could reverse cellular aging and revitalize human cells. They identified six chemical cocktails which effectively reversed key hallmarks of aging by rejuvenating older, degenerating cells without altering their identity or losing cellular memory. These drugs ranged from growth hormones and metformin, through metformin therapy and even valproic acid antipsychotic medication.

Scientists used chemicals to reprogram cells back to younger states and thus “rewind” the aging process by at least 10 years in mice, increasing lifespan by 30 percent and prolonging life by up to two decades. Their team reversed aging in human cells cultured in petri dishes as well, prompting them to look and behave younger again – this early-stage research including reversing blindness in monkeys is an exciting milestone in regenerative medicine and in their pursuit of youth-preserving treatments.

Harvard team’s breakthrough, published in Aging journal on July 12, 2023 may mark an important step forward in fighting age-related diseases and injuries. Their study, entitled “Chemically-Induced Reversal of Cellular Aging,” builds on prior work by using viral vectors to introduce Yamanaka genes into cells via optic nerve, brain tissue, kidney, and muscle. Such approaches have shown promising results with improved vision, longer lifespans, as well as recent reports of whole-body rejuvenation in monkeys.

As a result, this breakthrough has transformed our perception of aging as something which can be reversed rather than inevitable. At Aviv Medical, hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) treatment helps slow aging by stimulating natural regenerative abilities within our bodies and stimulating them consistently over time. For lasting anti-age benefits to be realized by our patients, consistent HBOT sessions must take place over an extended period.
