GDF-11 protein Avoid Heart of Cardiovascular Disease

WALL heart to thicken and increase in size is the size of the signs of a heart disease. However, not to worry to deal with. Therefore, it has been found that a protein can change the heart back to normal.
Yes, it is based on the results of a study published in the Journal Cell on May 9, 2013 last. Explained that the researchers from Harvard University have found that when injected protein can reverse the aging of the heart in 30 days. It also confirms that in other words the heart can make the elderly become young again.
“We have developed a protein that has the potential to restore the aging of the heart and after many years finally able to identify the proteins that GDF-11. Where protein could significantly restore the aging heart back to being young again,” said Amy Wagers, author of the study as well as a professor stem cell and regenerative biology at Harvard University.
Dituturkannya further that the condition can occur because the causes of aging is due to the unequal distribution of blood flow, to the network in a particular limb is not functioning. Therefore, GDF-11 protein was focused on blood flow. When blood is circulated throughout the body will decrease the risk of aging, especially on the heart.
After finding the protein, the researchers looked for the effects of cardiovascular aging. They injected GDF-11 into the bloodstream of mice that are old, and then matching the results with the size of the heart in young mice.
After 30 days, the researchers examined the heart of older mice. Previously found that mice showed thick walls with the same old human and rat heart successfully thinned so old now looks almost identical to the young rats. Similarly, as reported by Fox News.
“Now the heart of the old rats look almost identical on anatomy. I admit that there must be some differences, but the thick wall thinning that occurs quite significant and a lot of some rejuvenation,” said Prof. Wagers.
The researchers predicted, the present invention can maintain one’s heart from cardiovascular disease. In addition, to avoid instances of heart failure.
