A new UCSF pilot has suggested a simple proposal for treatment to eradicate serious age-related issues as Alzheimer's. diabetes and heart disease. The best part?
University researchers in conjunction with the San Francisco Administration Healthcare System (VA) have reason to believe that inflammation of the skin could promote the development of chronic multiple diseases and one way to help
studies, as the skin begins to lose moisture and eat about 50 years of age, it begins to break down the "barrier of permeability." The barrier involves retaining water in the body and acting as a shield from sinister pathogens outside our bodies
RELATED: Over 120,000 inhabitants in the Bay Area spend 3 hours commuting each day , says the study  When this barrier weakens age due to moisture loss, it releases cytokines (a type of protein released by immune system cells) to show inflammation in areas of the skin affected by age. Usually, such cytokines are intended to help repair the barrier, but older skin takes a bigger effort, researchers write, so the skin releases these “inflammatory signs” over and over again. Eventually, the cytokines can leak into the blood, and may cause inflammation throughout the body.
Previously, researchers did not doubt that the skin could be blamed for promoting such diseases, but later studies showed that the skin could do so inflammation could be like blame for heart disease.

Mao-Qiang Man. "When we get old, we have dermatological symptoms such as itchiness, dryness and changes in acidity. It may be that the skin has very small inflammation, and because it is such a large organ, it increases the cytokine levels circulating. "
A study was conducted with 33 adults aged between 58 and 95 years of age. They were given a type of damper researchers who observed their ratio of three lipids to the benefit of skin health. Participants were targeted to apply the moisturizer around the body twice a day for a month, followed by clinicians being almost identical to people in their 30s, suggesting that refreshments can be achieved. skin rejuvenation of the skin. "
Subsequently, scientists will continue a longer-term study of their initial results to test the effects of the moisture. If the results are similar, it may confirm that the repayment damper is an effective means of stopping chronic diseases.
