Xenohormesis – What Doesn’t Kill Plants May Make Us Stronger

DESCRIPTION: A new concept in biology tries to explain why the consumption of certain natural compounds in plants may mimic the lifespan-enhancing benefits of caloric restriction.

If this subject interests you, make sure you see my last video, where I introduce the topic: Appropriating Plant Defenses (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/appropriating-plant-defenses).

I previously introduced the concept of hormesis in my videos Enhanced Athletic Recovery Without Undermining Adaptation (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/enhanced-athletic-recovery-without-undermining-adaptation/) and Is Liquid Smoke Carcinogenic (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/is-liquid-smoke-flavoring-carcinogenic/ )?

How else might we get the benefits of dietary restriction without starving ourselves? See:
• The Benefits of Caloric Restriction Without the Actual Restricting (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/the-benefits-of-caloric-restriction-without-the-actual-restricting/)
• Methionine Restriction as a Life Extension Strategy (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/methionine-restriction-as-a-life-extension-strategy/)
• Why Do We Age? (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/why-do-we-age)
• Caloric Restriction vs. Animal Protein Restriction (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/caloric-restriction-vs-animal-protein-restriction)
