Silicon valley is finally getting the message as they are now spending billions of dollars on Research and Development to find the fountain of youth. Lets start with the lowly worm which through years of research has added years to its life cycle. Then lets go through the mouse study which added years to their lifespan by simply taking the drug metformin.
Until recent it was very difficult to get seed money for longevity studies since old age wasn’t considered a disease. However since we are in the age of ME. Researchers are pulling out all of the stops to develop a low cost longevity pill!
Enter Metformin which was originally developed as a antidiabetic drug and discovered by accident that patients who were taking the drug were living longer.
Fast speed forward with several studies demonstrate that metformin reduces the risk of heart attack, and is associated with reduction in stroke, atrial fibrillation and death from all causes including tumors and cancers.
If this isn’t enough to curb your interest some of the most knowledgeable scientific researchers are taking the drug metformin on a daily basis for a nickel a pop. New research shows the world’s first anti-aging drug could see humans live to 120 years.
We know that it is possible for handfuls of people to live to very old age and still be physically and socially active, so clearly they carry some kind of protection in their bodies. They are essentially not ageing as quickly. If we can harness that, then everyone can achieve those lifespans.
Dr Robert Temple, deputy director of the FDA said: Their hope is that a wide variety of age related problems, loss of muscle tone, dizziness, falls, dementia, loss of eyesight, all of those things. That would be something never done before. If you really are doing something to alter ageing the population of interest is everybody.
It surely would be revolutionary if they can bring it off. DR Simon Melov of the Buck Institute for Ageing Research added: You are talking about developing a therapy for a biological phenomenon which is universal and gives rise to all of these diseases. And if you have a therapy for this thing, these diseases just go away!
So there you have it…METFORMIN IS THE ANTI-AGING DRUG that can improve your life, reduce diseases, and give you a longer lifespand.
