About Us

At Gowing Life we analyse the latest breakthroughs in ageing and longevity, with the sole aim to help you make the best decisions to maximise your healthy lifespan.

Our dedicated team of research analysts from Oxford University and University College London scan the news and breakthroughs in a multitude of areas including gene therapy, nutrition and stem cell treatment to select the most relevant and significant research in longevity.

For the first time in human history we find ourselves not only beginning to understand the biological mechanisms of aging, but there is increasing evidence that we can manipulate these mechanisms to potentially make old age, a disease we all suffer from, a thing of the past. We are dedicated to supporting the scientists around the world achieve this goal as soon as possible. After all, we are not getting any younger… yet!
