Exercise may help reverse aging

As we age, our bodies will inevitably undergo certain modifications. Scientists are still attempting to piece together exactly what happens and how it affects the health of the elderly. A lipid termed bis(monoacylglycero)phosphate (BMP) accumulates in the tissues of aging mice and humans, according to a new research. BMPs, which are the lipids that we discovered to increase with age, have been identified in the past as potential indicators of illness or stress in the scientific literature.

Following the exercise intervention, the researchers discovered that the levels of BMP were reduced, even during the relatively short amount of time that the intervention included. This provides an important motivation for older people to exercise frequently, and Paunel Vukasinov, MD, an internist at the Medical Offices of Manhattan who is board certified, comments on the findings of this research.
