For the endeavor, the company plans to pair a collection of holistic, nourishing excursions with a variety of signature 50-minute services from the Canyon Ranch SpaClub repertoire, such as the Ocean Scrub, World of Relief Body Buff , Tangle Me Up Organic Body Wrap and Thai Massage. Available on 7- to 10-night itineraries through September, the wellness-themed off erings include tai chi classes in Marseille, France; yoga and deep meditation in Corfu, Greece; and laughter therapy in Palamós, Spain. Onboard the ship, meals will feature an array of healthy options, and fi tness center services will include reiki, acupuncture and educational workshops. "This new initiative allows us to showcase the holistic lifestyle that Canyon Ranch embodies to likeminded luxury travelers around the world, both on land and at sea," says Kathleen Shea, chief marketing offi cer of Canyon Ranch. "As an ever-evolving brand based on intentions, we're constantly working to further our mission for transformative wellness."

Published in the March edition of Science, the study focused on a metabolite called nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+), which is naturally present in every cell of our body and plays a key role in the processes that control DNA repair. Even though our cells can repair DNA when it becomes damaged—something that happens every time we go out into the sun or are exposed to radiation, for instance—that ability declines as we age. However, when the scientists treated mice with an NAD+ booster called NMN, they discovered clear signs of age reversal. "The cells of the old mice were indistinguishable from the young mice after just one week of treatment," says the study's lead author, David Sinclair, a professor of genetics at HMS. "Our results unveil a key mechanism in cellular degeneration and aging, but beyond that they point to a therapeutic avenue to halt and reverse age-related and radiation- induced DNA damage." Human trials are set to begin this year in the hopes of further developing those drug therapies.
