Westchester Wellness Medicine is offering weekly Rapamycin as a geroprotective agent. Although Rapamycin is not approved for longevity by the FDA and is used off-label, many people are currently using this treatment. Studies have repeatedly shown benefits in animals across multiple species, including yeast, worms, and mice. Some physicians and researchers believe that if taken intermittently and in low doses, Rapamycin can increase human lifespan the way it has in animal trials.

Here are some benefits of Rapamycin:

  1. Slowing Formation of Senescent Cells: Rapamycin is considered to be one of the most promising healthspan-promoting interventions for its role in slowing down the formation of senescent cells through its inhibition of the mTOR (mechanistic Target of Rapamycin) pathway.
  2. Boosting Cellular Health: By targeting the mTOR pathway, Rapamycin provides a defense against cellular senescence—a fundamental cause of aging—boosting cellular health and performance.
  3. Decreasing Inflammation: Rapamycin decreases inflammation, enabling immune stem cells to operate more efficiently. This bolsters immune function and supports a robust defense against age-related ailments.
  4. Reducing Senescent-Associated Inflammation: Senescent-associated inflammation is a driving force behind the aging process. Rapamycin targets the inflammation that often comes with age, helping to ease the body's inflammatory response, boost well-being, and energize life.
  5. Stimulating Autophagy: Rapamycin directly stimulates the cellular cleaning process known as autophagy. This process effectively clears toxic debris and promotes cellular rejuvenation.

In summary, Rapamycin's potential to enhance lifespan and healthspan lies in its multifaceted role in cellular and immune health, making it a promising candidate for age-related therapeutic interventions.
