Some people look younger than their age, others older. Have you ever wondered why? Can we help our bodies age more slowly? Although there seems to be no way to reverse the process of aging, we may be able to slow it down. Improving our diets may help! Humans are born with an internal biological clock within our cells, which reflects the aging state of the body. This is called the epigenetic clock, and it can be changed by what we eat. In this study, we found that women who took supplements of folic acid and vitamin B12 had a slower biological aging. More studies on the effects of our diets on the epigenetic clock will help people to live longer and to stay in good health.
