Scientists exploring how ageing affects the biological clock’s control of metabolism have discovered that a low-calorie diet helps keep the body younger.
Studies in both California and Barcelona have illustrated that a low-calorie diet can have a massive impact on preventing the effects of physiological aging; eating less (by roughly 30%) appears to prevent the ageing of tissue and ensures that stem cells continue to carry out their daily activities.
Both of these studies involved groups of mice to draw these conclusions, and the concept has yet to be carried out on humans. Nevertheless, their findings do provide a strong starting point and indicator as to the controlling elements of ageing in a pharmacological perspective; the implications for human ageing could be profound.
