AKG may increase Lifespan and DRAMATICALLY Increase Healthy Years

AKG may increase Lifespan and DRAMATICALLY Increase Healthy Years

Noting that some of the mice did experience moderate lifespan extension (the average was around 12%), measures of healthspan increased more than 40 percent. Lithgow says the goal is always to compress the time of disease and frailty. “The nightmare scenario has always been life extension with no reduction in disability. In this study, the treated middle-aged mice got healthier over time. Even the mice that died early saw improvements in their health, which was really surprising and encouraging.”
