Researchers discover stress in early life extends lifespan

Posted by in category: life extension

University of Michigan researchers have discovered that oxidative experienced early in life increases subsequent stress resistance later in life.

Oxidative stress happens when cells produce more oxidants and free radicals than they can deal with. It’s part of the aging process, but can also arise from stressful conditions such as exercise and calorie restriction.
