Mitochondria: Exploring 5 Lifestyle Habits to Benefit Cell Health

In each of our cells are small energy generators called mitochondria. The health of our mitochondria determines the amount of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) they can produce from the calories we eat and oxygen we consume. Without robust mitochondria, cells cannot do as much work as theyâ€re capable of and we need them to do so we can stay healthy. To achieve higher levels of performance we must optimize our mitochondria, the powerhouse of our cells, to produce energy. Cell function isnâ€t always the first place biohackers and nootropics enthusiasts start because it is challenging to notice a subjective boost in our mitochondrial function. Whether we can detect enhanced mitochondria subjectively or not, the science is pretty clear that healthy mitochondria play a role in supporting all indicators of cognition, physical performance, and aging. In a series of comprehensive posts, we will introduce scientifically-backed lifestyle changes and nootropics that up-regulate your mitochondrial function. In our last post, we went over how to use light and temperature to boost mitochondria. Now letâ€s tackle 5 more lifestyle habits we can implement to achieve healthier mitochondria.

Fisetin Senolytic Therapy

Risk-Benefit Analysis

Senolytics are agents that selectively induce apoptosis of senescent cells. Fisetin is a flavonoid polyphenol found in many types of fruits and vegetables (Arai et al., 2000) that is believed to act as a senolytic in addition to its numerous other known benefits. Although natural senolytics are less potent, compared to the targeted senolytics, they have lower toxicity and are thus, likely to be more readily translatable to clinical medicine. This RBA focuses on the risks and benefits of using fisetin as a senolytic rather than its more common use as a supplement.

Key Questions 

This RBA seeks to answer the following questions:

  • Which health and/or longevity benefits result from the use of fisetin as a senolytic? 
  • Which risks are involved in the use of fisetin as a senolytic (general and method-specific)?
  • What are the potential risk mitigation strategies?
  • Which method or combination of methods of using fisetin as a senolytic are most effective?
  • Which of the available methods are safe for use?
  • What is the best therapeutic protocol available at the moment?
