The impairment of senescent cells and tendency to promote inflammation contribute to loss of physical function and the risk for age-related disease and disability. Senolytic compounds have the ability to cleanse the body of these cells, improving organ function and preventing disease in animal models. Several compounds are being actively studied for these effects in humans and to define their optimal role in promoting longevity.
Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) occurs in 25% of the U.S. population, and in much higher rates in older and in overweight people. In the long term, it can cause severe liver damage. At the moment there are no medical treatments to prevent and/or reduce liver damage. Nevertheless, scientists have discovered that having a healthy liver is tied to a healthy mix of gut microbes. Carefully chosen blend of probiotic microorganisms combined with a prebiotic to support their survival, has been shown in clinical trials to reduce the severity of NAFLD.
