Researchers discover four different types of aging

Not all people age the same

Some get old and sick faster, others are still enviably fit for their age – we all know this from everyday life. In fact, there are apparently at least four types of aging in humans. This is what a team of doctors from Stanford University in California (USA) has found out. In a study, they identified four different ways in which the human body changes and grows old in the course of life. If you know your ageing type, your lifestyle can at least to some extent influence how quickly you get old.

Scientists find four types of ageing

The geneticist Michael Snyder and his team of scientists from Stanford University published their study in the journal “Nature Medicine” in January. They investigated the aging of the body using biochemical methods and came to the conclusion that there are at least four different types of aging and how the human body changes in the course of life. Each ageing type is linked to a specific organ or process in the body:

  • Metabolism
    Immune System

For study leader Michael Snyder, knowledge of one’s own aging type is an important insight for taking countermeasures in good time: “It can help individuals to precisely identify risk factors for their health and to identify the areas in which they are most likely to have problems later on,” says Snyder. “The most important thing is that our study shows one thing: it is possible to positively influence the course of aging.

With people like cars, some parts wear out faster than others…

The researchers found the different aging variants after regularly examining 106 women and men aged 29 to 75 years over a period of several years, who had no previous illnesses at the beginning of the study. Later, Professor Snyder and his team concentrated on 43 of the subjects. The scientists regularly analyzed samples of blood and stool, and even examined bacteria that settled in the noses of the study participants. In the end, they had countless data on genes, blood proteins, metabolites and microorganisms from each subject and observed how these data changed over time.

Professor Snyder and his colleagues initially identified four ageing variants among the test subjects. Some showed changes in metabolism, others in the immune system, liver or kidney function. One metabolic aging person developed a certain haemoglobin in the blood, which can indicate the development of diabetes. In test subjects of the immune aging type, on the other hand, signs of inflammation accumulated in the body.

Michael Snyder likes to draw a comparison with cars. “As your car gets older, some components probably wear out faster than others, such as the transmission or brakes. And these are the parts you need to know how to repair, ideally.” However, not everyone can be automatically assigned to one aging type, and there are mixed types.

durm secrets for keeping your skin
looking young stuff we want to start in
your 20s that is gonna pay off dividends
for years to come but the tips I'm gonna
give you a today's video I mean you
don't I'd be in your 20s to do these
things you should be doing them and I
say skincare in your twenties because
when I look at my demographics on
YouTube that is my youngest audience
category well really the stuff that I'm
telling you in today's video is for
everybody first and foremost is
protecting your skin from the Sun 80% of
skin aging has to do with ultraviolet
radiation that includes ultraviolet
radiation that is present on cloudy days
when it's gray outside and also
ultraviolet radiation that comes through
window glass this can damage the
collagen and the deeper layers of your
skin it's not necessarily gonna burn
your skin so you're not even going to be
aware that it's going on but it's aging
your skin it's causing free radical
damage that is going to show up as a
wrinkles fine lines and dis pigmentation
so protecting your skin from the Sun is
imperative and that includes wearing a
broad spectrum SPF 30 to 50 sunscreen
every single day but don't just stop
with sunscreen make sure you wear a
broad brimmed hat that really can
protect you not only from aging but also
from skin cancer the broader the brim
the better you need to get some big
sunglasses that will cover your eyes and
the sides around the sides and protect
your eyes from the Sun not only to
protect you against those crow's feet
from developing but also against skin
cancers really comment around the eyes
no sunscreen and sunglasses and a big
hat beyond the damage that Sun causes to
your skin though as far as those
wrinkles whether they be crow's feet or
on the eyes or wrinkles around the mouth
Brown lines also tekneq I have a video
on but when we Crane our neck to look
down at a computer screen it causes
wrinkles that can become more prominent
with time any repetitive motion it's
contribute to those those wrinkles that
accumulate with time I train yourself to
relax your face facial expressions are
really important in conversation and
conveying ideas and communicating but
you can train yourself to relax your
face more and not use those muscles as
much and this is it helpful because a
lot of times we're flexing those muscles
so who don't even realize it
we're concentrating we're reading an
email and nobody's looking at us but
we're frowning or grimacing and we don't
necessarily need to do that so training
yourself to move your face box can
actually help holding a lot of tension
in your face also can be bad if you
suffer from heavy headaches a lot
tension headaches from focusing in a
computer you're all hunched over number
three is your sleep that needs to be
dialed down and when you're in your 20s
you know that's kind of why I wanted to
carry this to you guys all these tips
are preventative and when you're in your
20s that is the that's a good time to
really push yourself to build a good
sleep routine and to preserve your sleep
quality at night and make sure you're
getting good sleep you know when I was
in my 20s I remember kind of bragging
and amongst friends we were bragging to
one another about how little sleep we
could get by on boy do I regret that
because with time that sleep deprivation
shows up on your face it's actually been
shown that sleep deprivation results in
accelerated accelerated skin aging more
dramatic appearance of some of the
visible signs of aging like bags under
the eyes eight hours of sleep should be
the goal nine is perfect if you can get
nine a night who you are winning that is
amazing and keep that preserve that hold
on to it treasure it tips for getting
that nine hours of sleep shut the world
out about an hour before you want to go
to bed this is imperative and by to shut
the world out I mean no screens the blue
light from the screens tricks your brain
into staying awake longer you don't need
that turn everything off you know and
have some relaxing music and read a book
that can help you transition to sleep
just the eye movement back and forth can
lull you to sleep your diet clean it up
in your 20s clean up your diet you're
busy you're trying to get your career
off or maybe you're starting a family
and so you know you start cutting
corners and one of the first things
people do outside slacking on their
sleep quality is to cut corners with
their diet and rely on convenience food
and nothing will age you faster than a
trashy diet for that you make it a
priority to at least get in your
recommended servings of fruits and
vegetables every day there's no excuse
when you're your 20s you are an adult
you need to eat well and that will pay
off dividends in the long run if you are
eating out and you were eating drive up
food or fast food or stuff that comes
out of a vending machine that's not real
food and that is not going to help your
skin you need things like fruits and
vegetables that are rich in antioxidants
healthy fats like avocado that can help
in skin barrier integrity and when I
give you guys this tip about your diet
it's not to tell you that these are bad
foods and now you can't have them and
that you should never go near them it's
to tell you that they should not be your
meals it'll show up on your face if you
have a crummy diet not only that buy a
diet rich in processed sugary foods
contributes to something in the skin
called advanced glycation end-products
basically sugar molecules glomming on to
the collagen in your skin and creating
these advanced glycation end-products
that result in wrinkles so that in
combination with the UV is a is a
formula for prominent wrinkles so clean
up your diet be and being an adult and
things that you need to do if you
haven't already wash your face at night
do not go to bed and
ladies this is a bad idea cut that off
now if you're in your 20s because it'll
just get harder and harder with time bad
habits that you don't break in your 20s
are gonna be harder to break in your 30s
even harder to break in your 40s and by
the time you're 90 you're not going to
break those habits and your skin is
going to be like why are you doing this
to me it's still because makeup is ear
can be irritating the skin and you have
oils that build up on the surface of
your skin pollutants from the
environment allergens plus that makeup
it all kind of decomposes on the surface
of your skin it causes irritation and
free radical damage to your skin the
other thing that I want to encourage you
guys to do is to stop two bad habits one
is smoking I don't care if you smoke a
every third or fourth month that is too
much one cigarette is too many
cigarettes smoking destroys the collagen
and the deeper layers of our skin
creates a ton of free radical damage all
over the body causes lung cancer
accelerates aging accelerates and
exacerbates pretty much every disease
process and it gets harder and harder
and harder and harder and harder to quit
the longer you do right so if you're
watching this and you're smoking and
you're in your early 20s you have to
stop you have to stop I mean everyone
has to stop but now it's gonna be easier
for you than if you wait there's no
reason to wait just stop now just stop
now and if you fail try again and if you
fail again try again the other bad habit
that has been shown and is known to
accelerate the rate of Aging is
excessive alcohol consumption I'm not
going to tell you that as an adult you
cannot consume alcohol responsibly and
there are studies showing that modest
amounts of alcohol specifically red wine
can actually have a cardioprotective
outcome but it's modest amounts if you
were consuming more than eight alcoholic
beverages a week that is excessive
and we'll definitely accelerate the rate
of aging in the skin it's
immunosuppressive it makes it harder for
your body to fight off free radicals and
it you know causes a variety of other
health conditions as well and leads to
blushing and redness so it can create
persistent redness in the skin which is
really a problem with the of rosacea and
it interferes with your sleep cycle
tremendously although I'll make you
drowsy I'll make you fall asleep because
awake right back up again a few hours
later it doesn't give you a restorative
sleep and so if you are consuming too
much alcohol in your 20s cut that out
cut it out it also is affects your mood
tremendously alcohol does it's a
depressant you know and so if you suffer
from any kind of mental health disorder
you you know alcohol is gonna make it
much worse for you it's a depressant and
it's gonna make your symptoms worse but
even if you don't suffer from those
diseases it will cause us those feelings
and that's not a good place to be
there's so much pressure in your 20s
it's a much it was the most high
pressure decade for me I didn't enjoy my
20s at all actually there's a lot of
pressure in your 20s more so I think
that any other decade in your life at
least for me there was and it can be a
very high-stress time if you don't
prioritize these good habits and make
them make them essentials for you they
will age you and I'll contribute to
other health problems I mentioned no
smoking and no alcohol and eating your
fruits and vegetables and getting lots
of sleep the other thing is exercise
exercise consistently will prolong your
life your quality of life and promote
overall health and it will show up on
your skin of a more radiant glow it will
improve circulation to the skin and it
will help in terms of skin recovery and
skin healing and fighting off those free
radicals the exercise does not have to
be at an athletic elite level at all
walking is great that is what you need
go on a walk with sunscreen on go on a
walk or do some
a topical vitamin a derivative whether
it be prescription like threatenin or
over-the-counter add abilene or retinol
or retinol dehyde these all can help
remove sun damaged skin cells and help
in boosting up collagen production in
the deeper layers of the skin so that's
a prudent ingredient to pursue but not
at the expense of sun protection if you
haven't got your sun protection dialed
down in your 20s make that more of a
priority in your skincare but yeah
topical vitamin A is very evidence-based
for improving the looks the improving
photo aging and for removing sun damaged
skin cells that actually can go on to
form skin cancer so if you're motivated
god is a good ingredient so those are my
tips for keeping your skin looking young
check the description box I will list
everything that I mentioned here is
first sunscreen if you liked it give it
a thumbs up share it with your friends
and as always don't forget sunscreen and
subscribe I'll talk to you guys tomorrow

Some subjects lived healthier lives and became biologically younger

What helps to stay healthy with increasing age has long been recommended by doctors: don’t smoke, lose excess weight, do a lot of sport and exercise, eat healthy food with lots of fruit and vegetables. The Stanford physicians see the benefit of their study in the fact that everyone can take specific action against the individual risks of their type of aging, for example by testing the organs that are particularly at risk – everything to stay healthy for longer.

Recipes for a healthy and balanced diet can be found here.

By the way, some of the test persons changed their lifestyle during the study period. They changed their diet, lost weight or started to exercise. The result: the age-related changes in their bodies reversed – they became biologically younger!

You can read here how exactly healthier nutrition changes the body positively.

Even the head of the study now does more workouts!

Professor Snyder also took part in his study as a test person. Until then, he actually always considered himself to be quite athletic. But the analysis of his data showed him that his body is biologically not younger than his age group. “I was a little disappointed to see that I was getting old quite normally,” Snyder recalls. “From that point on, I started weight training. I’m very interested to find out next year if this will affect my aging process.” Research into ageing types is just beginning. According to Michael Snyder, more studies are needed, with more test subjects and measurements – so that more people than ever stay healthy and fit into old age.
