Fasting Produces Anti-Aging Molecule

Researchers led by a team from Georgia State University recently announced that they had discovered a molecule that is created by people while they are fasting or on a reduced-calorie diet produces anti-aging effects on the human vascular system -- potentially reducing the severity of ailments that are connected to blood vessels, such as cardiovascular disease.

Dr. Ming-Hui Zou, senior author of the study and director of the Center for Molecular and Translational Medicine at Georgia State, said in a press release, “We found this compound, β-Hydroxybutyrate, can delay vascular aging. That’s actually providing a chemical link between calorie restriction and fasting and the anti-aging effect. It can prevent one type of cell aging called senescence, or cellular aging.”
