The Piano Key Theory of Human Aging

The main cause of human aging appears to be that the genes lose their optimal pattern of UP and DOWN settings (age 20-25). This is like piano keys. When the piano is new, it plays beautiful music, but with time the piano keys lose their proper tuning as the music is imperfect. Likewise, with time human genes lose their youthful settings and the diseases and conditions of aging set in. GHK, which was discovered during biochemical studies of human aging, resets human genes to a younger and healthier condition.

Most current theories and therapies to treat disease tend to target only one biochemical reaction or pathway. But for human aging, our data finds that we must think of simultaneously resetting hundreds or thousands of genes to protect at-risk tissues and organs. GHK may be a major step towards this resetting goal.
