Aging, which can be defined as the “time-related deterioration of the physiological functions necessary for survival and fertility,” is a process that most people would like to slow (Trusted Source).



While aging is inevitable, increasing the human lifespan and slowing the aging process has been a focus of scientific research for decades.

Through that research, scientists have identified a large number of substances that have anti-aging properties, many of which can be taken as supplements by those looking for natural ways to decelerate the aging process and prevent age-related disease.

Note that this list is not exhaustive, and many other supplements may also offer anti-aging effects.

Methodology: The selection or short-listing of the list below is based on the available scientific evidence retrieved from scientific database such as PubMed and scientific search engine such as Google Scholar.

Here are 10 supplements with anti-aging properties.

Stem Cell Therapy for Spinal Cord Injury in Malaysia 2020

Image
In recent years, stem cell therapy has gained popularity as a promising complementary treatment option for spinal cord injury. However, there is also a lot of confusion due to the overwhelming mixing of credible scientific information and marketing hypes available on the internet.

Stem cells have been used extensively for many proven indications like leukemias or genetic disorders like thalassaemia. Bone marrow haematopoietic stem cell (HSCs) transplants have more than 35 years of patient applications in blood diseases and cancer.

Due to its potential, stem cell therapy has also been repurposed into newer indications such as neurological disorders. A key issue in the treatment of neurologic diseases is that injurious processes are often irreversible because nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord are unable to spontaneously regenerate. However, neural plasticity has been observed experimentally in both global and focal brain ischaemia in animal models (Neurol India. 2009). Whether ne…

Whether neurogenesis increases in response to brain and neural lesions or stem cells can be used for transplantation are the potential questions to be answered.

Stem Cell Therapy for Diabetes in Malaysia 2020

In recent years, stem cell therapy has gained popularity as a promising alternative treatment option for diabetes mellitus. However, there is also a lot of confusion due to the overwhelming mixing of credible scientific information and marketing hypes available on the internet. As of early June 2020, more than 5000 studies have been published on PubMed.gov on stem cell therapy and diabetes mellitus. More than 200 studies have been launched to investigate the benefits of stem cell therapy and diabetes mellitus. You can review the status of these trials on clinicaltrials.gov.

There are various stem cell products in the Malaysian market. However, not all of the products contain 'live' stem cells. For stem cells to stay alive, it must be stored in a 'liquid nitrogen storage'. For live stem cells to reach the target organ, it needs to be administered intra-venously or intra-muscularly. Stem cells that are taken by the oral route will be digested and broken down in the stom…
