Longevity genes are genes involved in the regulation of cellular processes that determine cell health and lifespan.
For example, genes that dictate metabolic capacity and the cell’s ability to respond to stresses are involved with determining longevity at the cellular level. With recent advancements in genomics and the science of aging, research suggests that targeting genes involved with cellular processes can help increase longevity by preventing cell damage and disease. Longevity gene modifiers are an essential component of Apriori Beauty’s NutrientReservoir™. For example, acetyl-resveratrol is known to activate enzymes in the cell known as sirtuins that regulate several cellular processes including metabolism, gene expression, and immune responses. Research has shown that increasing sirtuin expression results in increased cell health and lifespan.
