Ketone bodies mimic the life span extending properties of caloric restriction

A new study looking at why decreased signalling through the insulin/IGF-1 receptor pathway increases life span and how similar changes can be brought about by the metabolism of ketone bodies. The metabolism of ketones is shown to lower both blood glucose and insulin providing the thermodynamic drive to destroy oxygen free radicals which are a major cause of the ageing process.
