When most of us think of yeast, we don’t think about anti-aging. But researchers are finding that yeast is an incredibly useful tool for anti-aging research. Here’s why:
The aging process of yeast cells is remarkably similar to that of human cells. So methods of decelerating aging in yeast may apply well to humans. And if we can slow the aging process, not only will we look younger, we’ll be at a reduced risk of a number of age-related diseases, such as cancer.
A recent article in the journal Oncotarget discusses the findings of a research team that investigated the effects of plant extracts on yeast’s aging process. They conducted over 10,000 trials to find the most effective extracts and identified a few that were very impressive.

These six groups of molecules actually slowed down the chronological aging of yeast in a powerful way. Better yet, they’re non-toxic and have already been shown to have health benefits in humans. So they’re very promising when it comes to developing new treatments to slow the aging process. The researchers are going to continue studying these molecules in animal models of aging as well as cancer models.
One of these groups of molecules comes from willow bark, which has been used medicinally for thousands of years. Willow bark extract increased the average lifespan of yeast by 475% and its maximum chronological lifespan by 369%. These are incredible results, much better than the anti-aging drugs currently on the market.
While more research is needed to harvest the full anti-aging potential of these plant extracts, you can start putting willow bark’s power to improve your skin. It’s so powerful that we included it in Système 41 Restorative Night Treatment. It’s just one of many ingredients that can help you turn back the clock.
