CELLULAR SENESCENCE AND AGING: How to slow down aging. In this video, we tackle the subject of senescent cells and the role that shortening telomeres play in their creation…and the impact that these have on the aging process.
We’ll talk about what causes telomeres to shorten, the Hayflick limit, and how all of this leads to senescent cells. I’ll also address the damage that senescent cells can have on the human body, and the consequences that that damage can cause to cellular aging…and to the aging process for humans.
We’ll also introduce senolytics, drugs and supplements that have been developed to clear the body of senescent cells, and we’ll take a look at some of the more promising ones.
