Metformin mediates cardioprotection against aging‐induced ischemic necroptosis – Li – – Aging Cell – Wiley Online Library

“Notably, metformin treatment disrupted p62‐RIP1‐RIP3 complexes and effectively repressed I/R‐induced necroptosis in aged hearts, ultimately reducing mortality in this model. These findings highlight previously unknown mechanisms of aging‐related myocardial ischemic vulnerability: p62‐necrosome‐dependent necroptosis. Metformin acts as a cardioprotective agent that inhibits this unfavorable chain mechanism of aging‐related I/R susceptibility.”

The influence of metformin on IGF-1 levels in humans: A systematic review and meta-analysis

The influence of metformin on IGF-1 levels in humans: A systematic review and meta-analysis

We found in children, intervention duration <12 weeks yielded significant reductions in IGF-1, whilst paradoxically, in participants >18 years old, metformin intake significantly increased IGF-1. We suggest that caution be taken when interpreting the findings of this review, particularly given the discordant supplementation practices between children and adults.

Growth Hormone DHEA Metformin In Aging Clinical Study

Growth Hormone DHEA Metformin In Aging Clinical Study

“A new clinical trial found that a combination of Growth Hormone, DHEA & Metformin helped to restore the size of the thymus gland and reverse biological age (epigenetic age via the GrimAge test).”

Risks: this risk is low (less than 10 cases for 100,000 patient years), but the risk of metformin-induced lactic acidosis (MALA) increases in certain situations where both the plasma levels of metformin are increased and lactate clearance is impaired.[6]
