Science have found that activating a protein called sirtuin 1 increases the lives of mice and delayed the onset of age related diseases. This technology could lead to drugs that can keep people younger and healthier.
A pill that can keep people younger has finally came one step closer after a long time. Scientists believe their experiments could lead to drugs that can keep people younger and healthier. SIRT1 and its sister protein SIRT2 are known to play a important roles in metabolism. they are also in DNA repair and gene regulation, and may also help cure disease and cancer.
Researchers led by Rafael de Cabo, tested that a SIRT1-activating molecule called SRT1720 on the health and lifespan of mice. they found that SRT1720 significantly extended the average lifespan of mice by 8.8%, Mice was also lighter slimmer, with better muscle function and better liver. SRT1720 also let to heart-protective lowering of harmful cholesterol.
