Reversing Our Epigenetic Age

According to an article published in Aging Cell whose writers include Gregory Fahy and Steve Horvath, “Epigenetic ‘clocks’ can now surpass chronological age in accuracy for estimating biological age.” The article goes on to show that “epigenetic aging can be reversed in humans.” They did this by using a protocol intended to “regenerate the thymus.” This protocol had “protective immunological changes, improved risk indices for many age‐related diseases, and a mean epigenetic age approximately 1.5 years less than baseline after 1 year of treatment.” Additionally, there was a “2‐year decrease in epigenetic vs. chronological age that persisted six months after discontinuing treatment.” This was a small sample study which they are in the process of repeating. These novel findings suggest that aging interventions do work for reducing biological age.
