Resveratrol as anti aging drug

How cellular aging can be slowed. 

Since long time many are engaged in finding out how one can stay fit and look beautiful even at older age by slowing down process of aging. The process of aging is a critical for life, life span of an living creature depends on the process of aging. Now there is some good news for people who want to look younger even at older age.

Process of aging can be slowed down by activating process of autophagy in a living animal or human, autophagy is the process which replenishes cytotoxic metabolites and toxic material and dead cell material from cells, thereby creating fresh nontoxic environment inside cell which render the cells to live for longer period.

It is observed in an experiment conducted by national institute of health USA that process of aging can be slowed down by reducing calorie intake rather supplying just enough calaries which are sufficient for metabolic fictions of body tissue, and giving supplement of resveratrol a compound which is found in grape fruit.

Other mechanism by which process of autophagy can be increase by AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK), it mention level of energy required for autophagy in a cell. Expression of gene Atg1 increase AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK). Therefore combination of diet control and resveratrol supplement can provide beneficial effect in slowing down process of cellular aging.
