'A Fountain of Youth'?


If you love broccoli (and even if you hate it) science serves up a compelling reason to eat it.
The everyday vegetable contains a natural compound packing a potent energy-related anti-aging punch on mice that “could be translated to humans,” according to the study.
>In a paper published in Cell Metabolism, a team of researchers from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis reports that nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN), an enzyme that plays a key role in energy metabolism, found in broccoli... is a natural way to reduce lost energy and signs of aging.
Btw - The fountain-of-youth-like compound is also in cucumbers, cabbage and edamame.

Study Summary -- Much of human health hinges on how well the body manufactures and uses energy. For reasons that remain unclear, cells' ability to produce energy declines with age, prompting scientists to suspect that the steady loss of efficiency in the body's energy supply chain is a key driver of the aging process. Now, scientists have shown that supplementing healthy mice with a natural compound called NMN can compensate for this loss of energy production, reducing typical signs of aging such as gradual weight gain, loss of insulin sensitivity and declines in physical activity.
