Staying young for many years: isn’t it a dream for many of us? Unfortunately, the scientists are very far away from offering us something that would work like a sip from the fountain of youth, but they have been working really hard on extending longevity and slowing down an aging process at least for a little. The main trend on the field is operating with the most powerful natural and herbal remedies, as well as natural superfoods to boost anti-aging processes in our body.
It was great to know that the specialists at McMaster University in Ontario are claiming some “profound” success by creating a new revolutionary formula for a special anti-aging cocktail, known as a “cocktail of ingredients that forestalls major aspects of the aging process.” It includes about 30 vitamins and nutrients, like folic acid, vitamins C, E, D and B1, beta-carotene, melatonin, potassium, magnesium and the extracts of garlic, green tea, fish fat, flaxseed oil, ginger root, ginkgo biloba and ginseng. I really wonder, how does anything like that taste?
This promising beverage is reported to be able to slow down physical dysfunction, the basic process related to aging, as well as to prevent free radical emission and stimulate the production of mitochondria. This way, this miraculous sample from the fountain of youth can assist everyone of us in fighting such effects of aging as the losses in physical mobility and capacities, cognition, motivation and sensory perception.
According to David Rollo, one of the leading experts who leaded the research, the formula was thoroughly tested on mice, and it was possible to increase lifespan of the rodents by 11%. It is pretty much impressive, meaning that it human terms, it would be one extra decade of a person’s life. Rollo also underlines that this anti-aging cocktail can be available for everyone as the formula is quite simple and the items for it “were purchased in local stores selling vitamin and health supplements for people.” You can read more about this wonderful study in Experimental Biology and Medicine journal.Author Info: Hi!
