mTOR Inhibitors work to inhibit the mechanistic target of Rapamycin (mTOR). This is a protein that helps to control various cell functions including cell division and cell survival. It also helps to increase the production of ATP (Adenosine triphosphate) which is a source of energy in the body at cellular level.
Inhibiting mTOR has benefits for those who are suffering from cancer as this reduces cell division and stimulates autophagy, the removal of dead senescent cells.
Topics covered include:
- A mTOR inhibitor list and examples
- Natural mTOR inhibitors including Rapamycin
- How mTOR inhibitors help to rejuvenate the immune system
Did you know…
- Recent studies have shown that middle-aged adults benefit most from short term treatment with mTOR inhibitors
- mTOR is a protein that controls a number of cell functions, and may be more active in cancer cells.
