An excerpt from CBC News “Old mice run faster with supplements” (with video),
Researchers at McMaster University in Hamilton have developed a cocktail of ingredients that forestalls major aspects of the aging process in mice.
Generally, aging diminishes the mind and compromises physical capacity.
David Rollo, a professor of biology at McMaster has found a cocktail of 30 dietary supplements such as B vitamins, vitamin D, ginseng and garlic counteracts symptoms of aging in mice.
The experiment was prompted by research that suggests single vitamin and antioxidant pills don’t work. The researchers wondered if mixing the ingredients would.
Rollo said the results were profound, as not only were the mice twice as active, they also seemed to get smarter.
OK, so everything and the kitchen sink works in mice.
1) Will this translate well to human?
2) What things in “everything and the kitchen sink” work? And why?
