This is information from CBC News – Technology & Science – Feb. 26th of this year entitled Old Mice Run Faster with Supplements.
Researchers at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, have developed a cocktail of 30 dietary supplements such as the B vitamins, etc., that counteract the symptoms of aging. The mice live 10% longer, are twice as active as normal, and seem to get smarter.
The experiment was prompted by research that showed single vitamin supplements didn’t seem to make a big difference, and the researchers wondered if mixing the ingredients might improve the results. Of course, this is what most intelligent nutritionists have insisted for decades… supplements work together as a team to produce their effects.
When researchers examined the animals’ brains, they found the cells were generating fewer of the free radicals that cause aging, evidence that shows the supplements make a difference. The team is now using crickets to try to figure out what role each of the 30 ingredients plays. So far, crickets that were fed the supplements have double their normal life span.
