Could new research out of Switzerland have found a piece of the puzzle to slowing down, or even reversing aging?

Our bodies change as we age, and things we may have done effortlessly in our twenties—like sprinting up a flight of stairs, touching our toes, or bench pressing our body weight and then some—become a little more challenging later in life. Maintenance also becomes more important to keep our bodies functional and receptive to our requests.

Like the rest of our body, the immune system also suffers this age-related decline, making us more susceptible to infections and disease. But, new research has discovered a molecule that can slow and perhaps even reverse the natural decline in immune function that happens as we age.

The findings were published in Nature Aging, and the results suggest we may be one step closer to being able to live longer—while remaining free of disease.
