23:23 FightAging.Org How Calorie Restriction Improves Intestinal Stem Cell Function

The practice of calorie restriction, eating up to 40% fewer calories while still maintaining an optimal intake of micronutrients, is well demonstrated to slow aging and extend healthy life span in near all species and lineages tested to date. It produces sweeping effects on the operation of metabolism - near everything changes, which has made it something of a challenge to identify the principal points of action. Nonetheless, more efficient operation of the cellular housekeeping mechanisms of autophagy is the most plausible mechanism to account for the majority of the benefits. That calorie restriction fails to extend life when autophagy is disabled is the most telling evidence. The open access paper that I'll point out today is illustrative of a great many similar lines of […]

We humans have not evolved for optimal function given a continually high calorie intake. We, and all other species, evolved in an environment characterized by periods of feast and famine: we desire food constantly, but nonetheless need some amount of hunger in order to be healthy. Periods of low calorie intake spur increased activity of tissue maintenance mechanisms throughout the body. A lower overall calorie intake minimizes excess visceral fat tissue that causes chronic inflammation and metabolic disease. In this modern society of comfort and cheap calories, all too many people are eating themselves into shorter, less healthy lives. This will continue until the advent of rejuvenation therapies that can meaningfully target the causes of aging, to a degree sufficient to outweight environmental influences on […]

The effect on lifespan of this and other interventions known to slow aging via upregulation of stress response mechanisms scale down as species life span increases - though, interestingly, the short-term benefits to health look quite similar across mammalian species.
