RANCHO PALOS VERDES, California, June 25, 2019 / PRNewswire / – Elderly people looking for the youth fountain may want to follow a simple rule: to limit carbohydrates. Recent research – The Effects of Low Carbohydrate Diet on Metabolic Changes in Aging – published in the Official Journal of the American Academy of Aesthetic Medicine (AAAM), is trying to follow a low-carb diet to slow down some of the metabolic changes associated with aging. The author examines the rise in age-related illnesses and reveals evidence of the benefits of a diet that limits carbohydrates rather than calories. When balanced with adequate proteins, fats and nutrients, this diet can maintain muscle mass, reduce inflammation, and increase longevity.
"My research shows that limiting carbohydrates during middle age can help people better adapt to age-related illnesses and dysfunctions," said Dr. Saad Sami Al-Sogier, author and dermatologist at Al- Cobar, Saudi Arabia, "Since carbohydrate restriction positively affects the metabolic pathways in tissues and organs, individuals can see improvements in their lives and the reversal of some aging processes."
The study discusses metabolic changes in aging, such as inflammation, insulin resistance, changes in body composition, mitochondrial decline, hormonal imbalance and the role of mTOR. The evidence presented explains how limiting carbohydrates is beneficial in aging as it reduces inflammatory markers, increases insulin sensitivity, induces mitochondrial biogenesis, stimulates ATP production, reduces serum aging factors, leads to better weight control, and limits signaling mTOR.
Dr. Al Sogier is a board certified dermatologist and has earned the reputation of a specialist in dermatology for aging by publishing many articles in his interest. He is a member of remarkable international anti-aging and aesthetic societies and academies, including the Saudi Society of Dermatology and Dermatology, the Swiss Academy of Cosmetic Dermatology and Aesthetic Medicine, the American Academy of Aesthetic Medicine and the American Academy of Aging Aging Medicine.
"The overall finding is that, overall, and based on the results of various studies, the low carbohydrate diet – not just reduced calorie intake – improves the metabolic changes associated with aging and increases life expectancy," he repeated.
