ROCHESTER, Minn. — It’s no secret that regular exercise may add years to your life, but older adults may want to turn up the speed on the treadmill if they want to turn back the clock on aging . A new study by the Mayo Clinic has found that high-intensity aerobic exercise can reverse some of the
Finding a way to stop the ageing process has been an elusive, age -old dream. Published: June 21, 2016 2:00 AM IST. Now, a team of researchers has found that turning back the clock is as simple as hitting the gym. The report shows that regular exercise plays a critical role in helping muscles
New research shows how dramatically exercise can slow ageing and reduce inflammation in our muscles.
The study, published in the, found that the muscles of life-long exercisers in their 70s were comparable in cellular age to those of active 25-year-old participants.
Researchers from Ball State University recruited 21 “life-long” exercisers in their 70s, 10 healthy “non-exercisers” in their 70s and 10 runners and cyclists in their mid-20s.

Exercise can help older people improve the strength of their muscles and even reverse the signs of ageing , according to new research. Canadian scientists followed 25 healthy men and women over the age of 65 as they did resistance training twice a week for six months, studying the mitochondrial
They measured their thighs for muscle mass, and took blood and muscle biopsies before and after a resistance exercise challenge.
The 25-year-olds had the greatest muscle mass (and the inactive older adults, the least), however, they found that the inflammatory markers from both blood and muscle samples were significantly lower among the young and older exercisers compared with the non-exercisers.
While ageing leads to “a pro-inflammatory profile within blood and muscle", lifelong exercise partially prevents this and kept the acute inflammatory response after exercise to the level seen in young exercising men.
“The results ... help to understand the long-term benefits of exercise for avoidance of a chronic inflammatory state that may contribute to poor health and functional decline in ageing adults,” the authors wrote.
Fascinating Study Finds That Stressed Out Baby Worms Tend to Live Longer
Scientists researching a key aspect of biochemistry in living creatures have been taking a very close look at the tiny Caenorhabditis elegans roundworm. Their latest results show that when these nematodes get put under more biochemical stress early in their lives, they somehow tend to live longer. This type of stress, called oxidative stress - an imbalance of oxygen-containing molecules that can result in cellular and tissue damage - seems to better prepare the worms for the strains of later life, along the same lines as the old adage that whatever doesn't kill you, makes you stronger.You might think that worm lifespans have no bearing on human life.
Turn back the clock on aging muscles Regular exercise can turn back the clock for aging muscle . This most recent study demonstrates that even in the elderly (individuals of 70 or 80 human years of age ), regular exercise has the effect of rejuvenating muscle health, and these benefits are
Exercise not only creates younger-looking muscles , but a brain capable of maintaining its optimal performance throughout the aging process (2005) found that, “hormonal changes appear to be related to amount of muscle mass activated and to the metabolic response caused by the exercise .”
Dr Ashleigh Smith, an NHMRC-ARC Dementia Research Development Fellow, said muscle- ageing is caused by changes in the muscle itself as well as changes in the central nervous system (including both the brain and at the spinal cord level).
“For example, we know that motor neurons die from (often from 60 years +) causing connections within muscle fibres to decline – eventually leading to shrinking of muscle fibres, and as a result, muscles get smaller and the weaker,” said Dr Smith.
“In the brain, there is also evidence that the central pathways, or the brain cells (also called neurons), supplying the muscles decline in function and begin to die with increased age.”
Genetics and the presence of chronic low-grade inflammation (or "inflammaging") influence this process, which means there are significant differences in how quickly or slowly our muscles decline over time.
“We think a large proportion of this variability is due at least in part to the type of lifestyle people have led (i.e. how physically active people are),” Smith says.
Although the study was small, Dr Smith says it “provides new and novel physiological insights” into the influence of ageing and lifelong exercise on inflammatory markers.
While, in this study, the benefits were obtained from those who had been active their whole life, starting at any age leads to advantages.
“Even older people 86-96 years old, increase muscle size and see functional benefits from a resistance training program,” says Dr Smith. She recommends older people see a GP and an exercise physiologist to tailor a program to suit the state of their fitness and health. “So it is really never too late to start.”
How To Extend Your Apple Watch's Battery Life .
You can save battery on your Apple Watch in a few different ways. A full charge normally lasts about 18 hours, but depending on how you use your device, it may be much less than that. Here are five of the best ways to maximise your Apple Watch's battery juice.There's nothing more frustrating than seeing that low battery alert when you swore you only charged it a few hours ago, but it's pretty much a given if you use your device a lot.
