DAILYMAIL – September 3, 2018: The article highlights that a new technique could see the aging process in humans reduced by 50 years. And that Researchers from Sydney found mice given the pill lived ten per cent longer. The molecule could also regenerate certain organs by reprogramming their cells. Possibility that the drug could be available to the public in five years following human testing.
The technique said to be an extraordinary new anti-ageing method that could see humans live to 150 years old and allow them to regrow their organs by 2020.
Harvard Professor David Sinclair and researchers from the University of New South Wales developed the new process, which involves reprogramming cells.
Dr. Sinclair said the technique could also allow people to regenerate organs, and even allow paralysis sufferers to move again, with human trials due within two years.
The researchers also found during testing that they could increase the lifespan of mice by ten per cent by giving them a vitamin B derivative pill.
They also said the pill led to the reduction in age-related hair loss, according to The Herald Sun article and Professor Sinclair is hoping that the pill would be available to the public within five years, costing the same each day as a cup of coffee.
The science behind the new technique said the professor involves the molecule nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD), which plays a role in generating energy in the human body and that the chemical is already being used as a supplement for treating Parkinson’s disease and fighting jet lag. (BattleForWorld: Referring to the vitamin supplement NADH. But the molecule, NAD precursors, being used in the research is a modified version of the already available supplement NADH.)
The professor, who is using his own molecule to reduce the aging process, claims that his biological age has dropped by 24 years after taking the pill. And said his father, age 79, has been white water rafting and backpacking after he started using the molecule, NAD, a year-and-a-half ago.
He also said his sister-in-law was now fertile again after taking the treatment, despite having started to transition into menopause in her 40s.
