The scientists were able to rejuvenate human cells using conventional products

According to the publication BMC Cell Biology, a group of British scientists from Exeter University discovered a new method of rejuvenating human cells. Moreover, the substance that makes cells younger — this resveratrol. The main component of red wine, dark chocolate, grapes and blueberries.

In the experiment, the experts, led by Dr. Laura Harris has been able, with the help of resveratrol to force cells to begin active division and elongation of telomeres (end sections of chromosomes). The fact that telomere shortening — the main signs of aging of human cells. With each division the telomere is shortened, and when the shortening reaches the "point of no return", the cell ceases to perform its function.

The Above discovery is based on an earlier survey of scientists, which found out that there are a number of proteins called splicing factors (splicing factors). They measure aging "turned off", causing the cells lose the ability to share, which is also associated with shortening of telomeres. As we found out, these genes can be "turned" back. And the inclusion of answers resveratrol.

"When we saw the changed cell, we were amazed. All the old cells are just like young. This is the first step in trying to help the elderly to live a normal full life. Our data show that the use of drugs and products with resveratrol can restore the function of old cells. They can share and re-perform its function".
