Scientists revealed in a groundbreaking study that they have successfully slowed aging process in mice, and they’re hoping the development will lead to an anti-ageing pill that would work on humans.

科學家們在一項突破性的研究中發現,他們已經成功地延緩了老鼠衰老的進程,他們希望這一進展能帶來一種對人類起作用的抗衰老藥物。

In a five-year study, published in journal Cell, researchers report that they have found a molecule that essentially reactivates faltering blood flow in elderly mice, Time Magazine reports. Compromised blood flow is a major component of ageing, as it deprives tissues and organs, including the brain, of the nutrients and oxygen they need to function.

據《時代周刊》報道,研究人員在《細胞》雜志上發表了一項為期五年的研究報告,稱他們已經發現了一種分子,這種分子本質上可以重新激活年老老鼠不穩定的血流。血液老化是衰老的根源,因為它剝奪了需要發揮作用的組織和器官(包括大腦)所需的營養和氧氣。

After being treated with NMN for two months, it increased muscular blood flow, enhanced physical performance and endurance, and the older mice eventually became as fit and strong as the younger ones.
