In the journal Cell published an article that low-calorie diet slows down the aging process. The body saves strength and energy, and so is aging more slowly.<br>
There is such a term as circadian rhythms. These rhythms are responsible for the regulation of consumption of energy by the cell during different hours of the day and night. Young people, this mechanism works like a clock, but aging body the biorhythms work longer. However, low-calorie diet resumes these biorhythms, thereby slowing aging. This tells the scientist Paolo Sasson-Corsi Livenskogo from the University of California (USA).<br>
Scientists studied the biorhythms and identified an interesting connection between their work and low-calorie menu. It's good to be seen on the example of monkeys, which were restricted in calories and they lived longer than their counterparts who lived on the usual diet for one to two decades.<br>
This conclusion was based on the study of the life of the mice. Their diet consisted of a limited number of calories, which eventually resulted in the order of their biorhythms, and in old age helped to save energy as it was in youth. The duration of life was longer for a few months, as activity in old age was much more active than other individuals who have not participated in this experience. Scientists have concluded that such a relationship is in the human body.
