A new study wants to show that we do not age gradually, but gradually - namely over three decades.
Proteins in the blood play an essential role.
Why do some people look 30 when they are 40?
Genetic predisposition plays an important role, but lifestyle also has a huge impact on our aging process.
A new study by US scientists at Stanford University now claims to have found
that biological aging is not a creeping process, but rather happens in leaps and bounds - namely in the fourth, seventh and eighth decades of life
These three ages are crucial for biological aging because they bring about enormous changes for the body, according to the researchers.
For the study, the Stanford researchers analyzed the blood plasma of 4,263 people between 18 and 95 years of age and examined it for 2,925 plasma proteins.
They came to the conclusion that the number of proteins in blood plasma changed significantly in the 30s, 60s and 70s.
These "aging leaps" of the body would have an influence on the development of diseases, among other things
"This new approach to studying aging led to the identification of unexpected signatures and pathways that could provide potential targets for age-related diseases," the study says.

A balanced diet eliminates the need for pills
Age researcher Professor Sven Voelpel explains the role of proteins in the body in a picture interview: "Proteins are the building blocks of life, that is, we live through proteins", and adds: "In the study around 3,000 proteins were examined and it was noticed that there are then just those episodes
where the proteins are no longer available in good measure and that is why there is a kind of erratic aging. ”
But the genes can be changed by our behavior, says Voelpel.
According to him, only a few minutes a day should be enough to rejuvenate or to live longer.
He sees the solution in dietary supplements.
"I myself take a mixture of vital substances every morning, in which I get all the vitamins, minerals, enzymes, probiotic bacteria and fiber," says Voelpel.
In this way, the metabolic processes are optimally supported, which can slow down the aging process.
According to US scientists, we age particularly quickly in three phases of life.
But there are measures that are intended to counteract this.

The extent to which it makes sense to take nutritional supplements with an otherwise balanced diet is controversial.
The German Nutrition Society sees this critical and cited, among others, Professor Marc Birringer from the University of Fulda, who advises against dietary supplements and appeals to the conversion of our diet and lifestyle: "
The body has numerous body's antioxidants, which we through exercise and Sport, the avoidance of obesity and a varied diet can activate
”, says Birringer.
According to the current state of knowledge, healthy adults obtain all the important nutrients by eating as varied and as natural a diet as possible.
According to the DGE, finished products that contain a lot of industrial sugar and salt should only be eaten very rarely and meat and other animal products in moderation.
Fresh fruits and vegetables, legumes, herbs, kernels, seeds and whole grain products, on the other hand, should be eaten frequently.

This lifestyle is supposed to make you live longer
In addition to a varied diet, the following factors should also have a rejuvenating effect, according to age researcher Sven Voelpel:
a positive outlook on life
a lot of movement
lots of social interaction
