A collaboration of researchers from the United States and Australia is working on a regular metabolic compound which was administered to mice, not just boosts muscle function, but actually reverses the affects of aging. The research was led by David Sinclair of the University of New South Wales and the results have been published in the journal Cell.
A regular metabolic coenzyme known as nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) was administered to mice in hopes that it would slow the aging of skeletal muscle. The researchers were shocked to find that it didn’t slow aging; it dramatically reversed it. In under a week, the mice who had previously been suffering from a variety of age-related impairments experienced an increase in muscle tone, as if they had been exercising and following a healthy diet. In some regards, the compound acted like the proverbial fountain of youth.
The secret to reversing aging, as…
