The 2nd TCM Anti-aging Conference was held? Experts pointed out that “the intestines of the elderly decline first, and the intestines should be nourished first for health preservation”
On May 26, the “Second TCM Anti-aging Conference” hosted by the World Federation of Chinese Medicine Societies was held in Shijiazhuang. Professor Bian Yuhong, Dean of the School of Integrated Traditional Chinese and Western Medicine of Tianjin University of Traditional Chinese Medicine, gave a keynote report on “Bazi Bushen Capsules Delays Multiple Organ Aging and Its Action Mechanism in SAMP6 Mice” at the meeting, and shared the innovative traditional Chinese medicine Bazi Bushen Capsules to maintain intestinal homeostasis , delaying osteoporosis, skin aging and other aspects of the latest research progress, aroused widespread concern of experts and scholars attending the meeting.
Professor Bian Yuhong, Dean of the College of Integrated Traditional Chinese and Western Medicine, Tianjin University of Traditional Chinese Medicine, made a report at the meeting
Professor Bian Yuhong pointed out in the report that the intestine is the largest immune organ of the human body, and it is also the main digestive organ of the human body. Once the intestinal tract is aging, health will be at risk, and various diseases will follow one after another. In mild cases, it will lead to intestinal dysfunction, nutritional deficiencies, and decreased immunity of the body. In severe cases, it may induce digestive tract tumors, liver lesions, diabetes, and cardiovascular diseases. Therefore, Professor Bian Yuhong put forward the view that “intestinals decline first in old people, and the intestines should be nourished first in health preservation”.
Professor Bian Yuhong emphasized that the intestinal age of normal people is not much different from their own physiological age, and the beneficial bacteria, harmful bacteria, and neutral bacteria in the intestinal tract are in a state of balance and coordination. However, due to increased stress, mental stress, improper diet, lack of exercise, drug abuse and other reasons, the number of beneficial bacteria in the intestines of many people will decrease, while the number of harmful bacteria will continue to increase, which will cause intestinal flora imbalance and lead to The gut ages prematurely. In the aging intestine, the mucus layer is thinner, the diversity of the flora is lower, the original tight junction of the intestinal epithelial cells is destroyed, and the junctional dysfunction leads to the increase of intestinal permeability, the decrease of the intestinal mucosal barrier function, and inflammation.
Professor Bian Yuhong’s team found that eight seeds tonifying kidney can increase the integrity of the intestinal mucosal barrier and improve the intestinal mucosal barrier; it can down-regulate the level of pro-inflammatory cytokines, inhibit inflammatory pathways, and improve intestinal inflammation; eight seeds tonifying kidney can also change the intestinal microbial community The quantity and composition of the microbial community can be improved, the species distribution of the microbial community can be improved, the beneficial bacteria can be increased, and the dominant microbial community can be adjusted, thereby improving intestinal homeostasis and delaying intestinal aging.
In addition, Professor Bian Yuhong also introduced the experimental research on the treatment of osteoporosis and delaying skin aging with Bazi tonifying the kidney. Professor Bian pointed out that osteoporosis is a systemic bone disease characterized by low bone mass and damage to bone microstructure, leading to increased bone fragility and susceptibility to fractures, which seriously endangers the health of middle-aged and elderly people. Bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (BMSCs) ) aging is an important cause of osteoporosis. Bazi Tonifying Kidney can improve bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells by improving the shape and structure of trabecular bone, increasing bone density, bone mineral content, and bone trabecular density, increasing serum calcium and phosphorus levels, reducing aging-related protein content, and reducing pro-apoptotic proteins. The imbalance of osteogenesis and adipogenic differentiation plays a role in the treatment of osteoporosis. For skin aging, Professor Bian Yuhong pointed out that it is mainly related to skin homeostasis, and COL17A1 protein, a biomarker of epidermal stem cells, plays an important role in skin homeostasis. Studies have found that eight seeds tonifying kidney can improve skin structure, increase the expression of COL17A1 protein, and delay skin aging.
Participants expressed that the above-mentioned studies provided new options for the treatment of aging-related diseases, and provided new ideas for in-depth research on anti-aging of traditional Chinese medicine in the future.
