Metformin is one of the most promising and well-researched interventions to slow down the accumulation of senescent cells by inducing autophagy. Metformin's benefits extend beyond the induction of autophagy, and include optimizing metabolic pathways, and upregulating the molecules that maintain the epigenome.
We've put together a health kit that targets the three major longevity intervention pathways: senescence, autophagy, and metabolic health.
The Healthkit Includes
Fisetin is a naturally occurring molecule that has been shown to target certain subtypes of senescent cells. There is preliminary research to show that intermittent use of Fisetin clears certain senescent cells, without being toxic to healthy cells.
Resveratrol is a naturally occurring molecule that activates Sirtuin genes. The expression of Sirtuin genes is believed to increase cellular autophagy, and also maintain the cells epigenome—ultimately resulting in healthier functional cells.
A Continuous Glucose Monitor gives you a direct view of how your food and lifestyle are affecting your blood sugar levels and your overall metabolic health. Based on the principles of bio-feedback, you can use these insights to make behavioral changes to optimize your metabolic health.
The Pillars of Aging
Dr. David Sinclair
David Sinclair is a professor in the Department of Genetics and co-director of the Paul F. Glenn Center for the Biology of Aging at Harvard Medical School, where he and his colleagues study sirtuins—protein-modifying enzymes that respond to changing NAD+ levels and to caloric restriction—as well as chromatin, energy metabolism, mitochondria, learning and memory, neurodegeneration, cancer, and cellular reprogramming.
