Is this newly discovered protein an anti-aging miracle?
A recent study suggests that Gaf1, an anti-aging protein, effectively controls protein metabolism. But what does this mean for the field of anti-aging and regenerative medicine?
The process of aging is complex, to say the least. Understanding how to slow down, or even halt that process, is the mystery that anti-aging and regenerative medicine specialists chase after. As the result of a new study, emerging evidence suggests that the protein known as Gaf1 maintains demonstrative and effective anti-aging properties.
In short, the study found that cells with Gaf1 positively implicated aging and disease. Cells without Gaf1, however, resulted in shorter lifespans.
Though this will certainly be delved into deeper, for now, this is further evidence that diet impacts aging. As always, Dennis Stolpner reminds his readers to carefully consider how genetics and environmental factors contribute to the process of aging.
