Three Longevity Genes

1. mTOR (Mammalian target of rapamycin)

Low levels of mTOR activates Autophagy (a signal that times are tough), the body’s way of cleaning out damaged cells, in order to regenerate newer, healthier ones.

2. AMPK (AMP-activated protein kinase)

AMPK is a sensor of energy; low energy is a good thing for longevity. In response, it protects the body because it thinks it’s going to run out of food.

We get more AMPK through exercise and fasting.

3. Sirtuins

Sirtuins are a family of signaling proteins involved in metabolic regulation.  They take care of DNA repair and stabilization of the epigenome.

  • Fasting inhibits mTOR and activates AMPK and the Sirtuins.
  • Sugar spikes glucose. Glucose shut down sirtuins and AMPK.
  • We should avoid high protein diets (specially red meat) for longevity.
  • Exercise, Heat, Cold & Other Stressors are “Adversity Mimetics” - we want to trick the body into thinking it’s under threat of survival.
  • Weight training maintains hormone levels, the ability to walk well and to have good posture, and also makes you look better, which can boost your confidence and reduce anxiety and stress.

When the cells replicate, the best thing is that they replicate into the same type of cell (we have liver cells, skin cells, nerve cells, etc.).

As we age, the packaging of the DNA that allows a cell to remain of a certain type of cell forever starts getting lost.

This is the process that give birth to most diseases (Dementia, Alzheimer, Diabetes, Heart Disease). If you slow down Ex-differentiation, it means you are getting the cells to remember how to behave. And consequently, you reverse aging.

The 3 regulators (mTOR, AMPK and Sirtuins) slow down the Ex-differentiation process.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Giovanna Scalzone

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
