Aging slowed in mice with supplement mix

It might be possible to cure aging, say scientists who’ve found that lab mice get smarter and more agile as they age when fed a mix of nutritional supplements.

The animal results at McMaster University in Hamilton illustrate how investigators aim to slow down the aging process to avoid the physical and mental declines that often come as more candles are added to the birthday cake.

They actually learn better as they age. They still don’t live much longer but their brain function is remarkable.

The mice also acted like restless teenagers showing “spontaneous motor function” that fades in humans in a universal sign of aging.

The supplemented mice maintained their memory function in tests, such as remembering a familiar object. Their learning abilities were like those of very young mice. Mice of the same age that were not supplemented behaved in lab tests like a frail 80-year-old woman.

Here are the ingredients:

Vitamin B1
Ginko biloba
Vitamin B3 (niacin)
Ginseng 631.1
Vitamin B6
Green tea extract
Vitamin B12
Vitamin C
Vitamin D
Acetyl L-carnitine
Alpha-lipoic acid
N-acetyl cysteine
Acetylsalicylic acid
Beta carotene
Chromium picolinate
Vitamin E
Folic acid
Cod liver oil (Omega 3)
Coenzyme Q10
Ginger root extract
Flax seed oil

Yes it is a BIG list, but I have written about most if these supplements for a variety of dog and cat health conditions.

More importantly is to look a what ingredients had the highest concentrations.

These were:

Essential Fatty Acids ( flax and cod liver oil)
Flavonoids, including rutin
Green Tee Extract
Vitamin C
Vitamin E

May it help delay the signs of aging in your dog or cat?

I think so.
