Identifying Ingredients to Combat Aging
Steve Wood, Ph.D., R.D., director of global research for Nu Skin's nutritional brand, Pharmanex, presented, "A Nutritional Strategy to Oppose the Genetic Expression of Aging and Loss of Vitality." The research described an algorithm Nu Skin's partner LifeGen Technologies uses to identify genetic supermarkers of aging. Natural ingredients were then screened for their impact on the genetic expression of those supermarkers. This study further suggests that the aging process is influenced by the expression of several genes and that a single gene change cannot account for the entire range of age-related disorders.
About Targeting Mitochondria 2010
The First World Congress on Targeting Mitochondria 2010 was held Nov. 18-19 in Berlin and attended by scientists from 26 countries. The event was sponsored by several organizations including the International Society of Antioxidants in Nutrition and Health (ISANH), the French Society of Antioxidants (SFA) and the Japanese Society of Antioxidants (JSA). As many believe the future of medicine and human health will probably come through mitochondria, the conference was designed to draw attention to controversies and provide answers and perspectives of mitochondrial function as a target, as well as highlight applications and potential strategies in the prevention and treatment of many chronic conditions.
