— ABOUT THIS VIDEO: This is part 3 of our series on David Sinclair’s new book, “Lifespan: Why We Age and Why We Don’t Have To.” We’ll talk about 3 concepts—rapamycin, mTOR, autophagy.
Rapamycin (an antibiotic) inhibits mTOR (a protein). mTOR inhibits autophagy. Autophagy is a natural process by which the body eliminates unnecessary components (like dead mitochondria).
So, does rapamycin have an effect on aging and longevity? That’s what we’ll discuss in the video.
