Rapamycin

Longevity Medicine is a specialised field that focuses on the science of aging and the factors that influence longevity. It goes beyond traditional healthcare by integrating innovative research, personalised assessments, and targeted interventions to help you live a longer, healthier, and more fulfilling life.

Rapamycin is a medication that has been used to prevent organ rejection in transplant patients for many years. It has gained attention more recently for its potential use as a geroprotective agent.

Rapamycin works by inhibiting the mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR), a protein that plays a role in cell growth and division. This inhibition of mTOR has a number of effects that may be beneficial for longevity, including:

• Reduces inflammation.
• Increases autophagy. Autophagy is a process by which cells break down and recycle damaged or unnecessary components. This is important for maintaining cellular health and preventing the accumulation of damage that can lead to aging. Rapamycin has been shown to increase autophagy in a number of studies.
• Extends lifespan in animal models.
• Improves cognitive function. Rapamycin has been shown to improve cognitive function in people with Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia.
