ABOUT THE CALERIE STUDY

CALERIE began as the first U.S. clinical trial to investigate the impacts of sustained calorie restriction in primates. The two phases of CALERIE study concluded caloric restriction instigates weight loss, reduces risks of cardiovascular disease and chronic disease, and contributes to a significant reduction in negative effects of the aging process.

The secondary outcomes and health effects of CR ranged from improved body composition, reduced oxidative stress, increased immune function, lowered glucose levels, improved cognitive function, and long-term reduction to risks of obesity and early morbidity.

THE BIOLOGICAL EFFECTS

CALERIE was the first study of its kind to take an intensive behavioral approach to objectively measuring caloric restriction’s impacts on biologic effects through a randomized controlled trial.

CALERIE participants were healthy, nonobese humans of various gender and ethnic groups. Participants conformed to dietary modifications including, but not limited to, limited calorie intake, reduced portion size, specific meal plans, and low-carbohydrate diets. CALERIE participants incorporated particular behavioral strategies, group counseling sessions, and social support networks as a part of their participation in the calorie restriction group.

ABOUT THE CALERIE STUDY

Researchers used the intake balance method to calculate energy intake from the difference between changes in energy stores (assessed by dual energy X-ray absorptiometry) and total energy expenditure (TEE) assessed by the doubly-labeled water method.

The full CALERIE data set is summarized and available on the Duke University’s website: https://calerie.duke.edu.

Xenohormesis – A Process that Extends Life

What is Xenohormesis? The prefix xeno means a foreign substance or stranger and hormesis is a protective way to respond when there is mild stress in the environment. Xenohormesis is a biological theory that shows how plants that are stressed in the environment produce bioactive substances that increase resistance and a means to survive to…

Energy Maintenance Theory of Aging 630 840 Calerie® Nutritionalist

Energy Maintenance Theory of Aging

Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is the form of energy that is stored within the mitochondria (the powerhouse of the cell) of every cell of the body. ATP production begins the Krebs Citric Acid Cycle. Research supported by the NIH has worked on a theory called the “Energy Maintenance Theory of Aging” (Chaudhari SN et al, 2018).…

Resveratrol, Niacin, and Nicotinamide Mononucleotide (NMN) Key Performers in Activating Sirtuins to help Extend Lifespan

Resveratrol, niacin and nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN) are key performers in helping to activate sirtuins to promote a longer lifespan. The research community has been quite intrigued to find and study these types of sirtuin activators because of their function. If the sirtuins can be activated humans have the opportunity to extend their lifespan. The 7…

How to Flip on the Metabolic Switch

The metabolic switch is the place in the body where there is a negative energy balance. The level of glycogen (stored sugar) in the liver is drained and the switch is flipped and fatty acids move out of the tissues and into the blood stream. This occurs after around 12 hours of fasting (Anton SD…

Salvage and de Novo – Two Unique Pathways to Make NADH

In biochemistry, the term “de novo” means that one compound like niacin makes a brand new compound like NADH. It is like building a car from scratch. Human cells generally depend on the De novo creation of NAD from the basics. NADH (Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide Hydrate) is a compound that is an electron carrier and…
