Hormesis in aging is represented by mild stress-induced stimulation of protective mechanisms in cells and organisms resulting in biologically beneficial effects. Single or multiple exposure to low doses of otherwise harmful agents, such as irradiation, food limitation, heat stress, hypergravity, reactive oxygen species and other free radicals have a variety of anti-aging and longevity-extending hormetic effects. Detailed molecular mechanisms that bring about the hormetic effects are being… Expand
Hormesis and aging
TLDR
Healthy aging may be achieved through mild and periodic but not severe or chronic physical and mental challenges and by the use of nutritional hormesis incorporating mild stress-inducing molecules called hormetins. Expand
Hormetic Interventions in Aging
TLDR
Healthy aging may be achieved by hormesis through mild and periodic, but not severe or chronic, physical and mental challenges and by the use of dietary hormesis incorporating mild stress-inducing molecules called hormetins. Expand
Hormesis as a Mechanism for the Anti-Aging Effects of Calorie Restriction
Hormesis in aging is represented by stress-induced stimulation of protective mechanisms and strengthened homeostasis/homeodynamics. Since calorie restriction (CR) generally stimulates variousExpand
Hormesis as a Pro-Healthy Aging Intervention in Human Beings?
TLDR
Moderate-intensity exercise, weight management and healthy diet ameliorate diseases of aging to increase lifespan and this could involve hormesis, and whether it might apply to humans is discussed. Expand
Heat Stress and Hormetin-Induced Hormesis in Human Cells: Effects on Aging, Wound Healing, Angiogenesis, and Differentiation
TLDR
Novel hormetic effects of mild heat stress on improving the wound healing capacity of skin fibroblasts and on enhancing the angiogenic ability of endothelial cells are observed, supporting the view that mild stress-induced hormesis can be applied for the modulation, intervention and prevention of aging and age-related impairments. Expand
Hormesis in Health and Disease: Molecular Mechanisms
TLDR
This review will elucidate the hormesis’ definition, mechanisms and pathways, and also how hormesis impacts in human health and lifespan. Expand
The Molecular Mechanisms of Adaptive Response Related to Environmental Stress
TLDR
Findings provide evidence that hormesis is a toxicological event, occurring at low exposure doses to environmental stressors, having the benefit for the maintenance of a healthy status. Expand
ER stress and hormetic regulation of the aging process
TLDR
Interestingly, ER stress transducers can distinguish the intensity of ER stress and induce a dose-dependent UPR, either adaptive response to stress or apoptotic cell death, and the role of ERstress in hormetic regulation of aging process and longevity is discussed. Expand
Vascular Aging and Oxidative Stress: Hormesis and Adaptive Cellular Pathways
TLDR
It is believed that the exposure of the endothelium to physiologic oxidative stress during its maturation phase determines vascular longevity, also known as hormesis: mild stress activates different endogenous mechanisms of repair and maintenance to protect cells against subsequent stresses. Expand
Stress‐Mediated Hormetic Modulation of Aging, Wound Healing, and Angiogenesis in Human Cells
TLDR
Testing the hormetic effects of glyoxal and heat shock on the wound‐healing capacity of skin fibroblasts and on the angiogenic ability of endothelial cells adds to the ever‐growing body of evidence in support of the view that mild stress‐induced hormesis can be a useful approach for the modulation, intervention, and prevention of aging and age‐related impairments.

Hormetic Prevention of Molecular Damage during Cellular Aging of Human Skin Fibroblasts and Keratinocytes
TLDR
RMHS at 41°C, for 1 h twice a week, increased the basal levels of various chaperones, reduced the accumulation of oxidatively and glycoxidatively damaged proteins, stimulated proteasomal activities for the degradation of abnormal proteins, improved cellular resistance to ethanol, hydrogen peroxide, and UV‐B rays, and increased the phosphorylation‐mediated activities of various stress kinases.

TLDR
Hormesis appears to be a promising and effective approach for modulating aging, for preventing or delaying the onset of age-related diseases, and for improving quality of life in old age. Expand
Stress Resistance by Caloric Restriction for Longevity

TLDR
The life‐prolonging action of caloric restriction (CR) seems to offer an excellent opportunity for investigating the interrelationship between stress and the aging process, and can be viewed as “nutritional stress,” because the organism's reduced caloric intake seems to be a stimulatory metabolic response for survivability.

Exercise and hormesis: oxidative stress-related adaptation for successful aging
TLDR
It is suggested that exercise-induced ROS production plays a role in the induction of antioxidants, DNA repair and protein degrading enzymes, resulting in decreases in the incidence of oxidative stress-related diseases and retardation of the aging process. Expand

TLDR
A unified theory of biological aging in terms of failure of homeodynamics comprising of MRS, and involving genes, milieu and chance, is acquiring a definitive shape and wider acceptance and establishes the basis for testing and developing effective means of intervention, prevention and modulation of aging.

Hormesis/preconditioning mechanisms, the nervous system and aging
TLDR
Data is described supporting the hormesis hypothesis of disease resistance and longevity, with a focus on findings from studies of the nervous system in this laboratory. Expand
Modulating cellular aging in vitro: Hormetic effects of repeated mild heat stress on protein oxidation and glycation
TLDR
It is suggested that treatments which increase HSP expression should reduce the extent of accumulation of abnormal proteins during aging, an example of hormesis, which is characterized by the beneficial effects resulting from the cellular responses to mild repeated stress. Expand
Longevity and aging: beneficial effects ofexposure to mild stress
TLDR
Exposing organisms to amild, sublethal stress, inducing a stress response, may help them to live longer, and studies conducted so far show that they may involve metabolic regulation and stress protein(hsps) induction. Expand

A combination of molecular, physiological and psychological modulatory approaches can realize “healthy ageing” as an achievable goal in the not‐so‐distant future. Expand

Testing whether RMHS can reduce the accumulation of heavily damaged proteins, such as oxidized and glycoxidized proteins involved in the development of many pathological consequences of aging found modulation of the level of damaged proteins is most likely related to the beneficial effects of hormesis resulting from exposure to mild stress.
