“Researchers have found a way to protect a mouse’s DNA from the damage that comes with aging, and they’re ready to test it in people.

Dr. David Sinclair, from Harvard Medical School, and his colleagues reveal their new findings in the latest issue of Science. They focused on an intriguing compound with anti-aging properties called NAD+, short for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide. It’s been known that younger mice had more of it than older mice and back in 2013, the researchers found that when they boosted the NAD+ levels in older mice, they looked, biologically, like much younger animals.

In the latest paper, the scientists revealed new details on how NAD+ works to keep cells young. Sinclair put drops of NAD+ into the water of a group of mice, and within a couple of hours, their NAD+ levels started to rise. Within the first week, the scientists saw obvious age reversal in muscle and improvements in DNA repair. “We can’t tell the difference between the tissues from an old mouse that is two years old versus a young mouse that is three to four months old,” Sinclair says.”*

  1. Nicotinomide adenine dinucleotide is endogenously produced its ubiquitous and is not a new compound. It was discovered in 1906 and extensively studied since I wouldn’t give Harvard all the credit considering multiple labs are investigating age reversal with various techniques just adding a little oxidising agent would more than likely just improve oxidative cellular damage at best

  2. People do not understand how sick and twisted this is. This just show what The Young Turks is about.

  3. Hmm. That was a missed opportunity to educate the public on what makes us tick at the cellular/energetic level. This whole conversation is about mtDNA (as in DNA in the mitochondria … not nuclear), and ENZYMES, methylation and other biochem pathways, epigenetics, NAD+ to NADPH (and back). No need to get so so so excited; look up NAD+ and think B3, niacin. Take a look at the inflammatory (aka aging) biochem pathway map created by Nutri-Genetic Research Institute, which also teaches a functional genomic analysis class and consider taking the freebie classes they offer before getting zippy about "messing with DNA." We're talking about assisting the body's natural healing ability by giving these biochemical pathways boosts where there are genetic/enzymatic weaknesses with vitamins, minerals, herbs, plants, homeopathics. Take a look at the ingredients of Life Extension's Ageless supplement (vitamin E, NAC, the bark of a plant called southern wax murtle) You can get a robust DNA test through NGRI which gives you far more data than 23andMe and has software to help makes sense of it. While the technology to identify genetic variants/weaknesses is futuristic, giving the body natural supplements from plants (or synthetic versions of plants) is ancient.

  4. Cancer, guns, accidents, etc, kill some of us but age kills the rest of us.

  5. Well in my opinion is think it would be great cuz u can be 60 and look 30 your kids will remember u young and beautiful and u can have more time with them…..
    Smart people can work more about humans
    And humans will care about our planet cuz they will live longer…..

  6. 2 years later: What could the 25-people-study find out? Results?

  7. The evidence is gradually coming forth. I noticed that antiaging talk and experiments started exploding about 3 years ago. Before that, there was some buzz and work being done but it lagged around the early 1990's with things like SOD and neutraceuticals and some drugs such as piracetam which went into obscurity. I'm glad people didn't give up then.

  8. strawberry lemonade I think you’re rong , evolving in tech, not in a longer life, it’s said that Noah lived ~950 years, now people should be happy if they catch 90, we’re destroing the planet, more cars every day, more polution, water it’s becoming toxic & most of the food it’s already toxic


  10. This should be used for dogs and pets so they live longer and make their owners happier c:

  11. Ey why is the lady on the far right so condescending and such an interrupter? Sheesh i feel bad for her co-hosts.

  12. There are dangers when it comes to genetic engineering.

  13. So let’s say I was 80. Would I become 16 with this?

  14. I want to kick the idiot on the left end there in the NAD+,the way he keeps staring at Anna is pissing me off.Grow a sense of humor harry potter +

  15. Consider it's on sale before it's been "tested on humans" which is USUALLY the mark of a scam.

  16. I cried inside while listening to her scientific explanation

  17. I heard about this but it could not work on humans at the time they did this.

  18. I tuned out when the commentary regressed to the virtue of avocado toast & the vindication of aging. Keep da sheat real, plz.

  19. Yahshua (jesus) is the ONLY way to everlasting life .

  20. Even if they managed to create such a thing , what makes u think they'll make it available to the public? They'll use it for them self to live longer then the sheep's. The same thing with the cancer treatment.

  21. Sign me up for the human trials!!!! I'm all about helping humanity😀

  22. I wouldn't call the babies "super" babies. Besides, this was already done to some degree when breeding Blacks years ago..

  23. Does it really reverse age or just makes you look younger?

  24. Harvard are some smart mutafukas

  25. "if it makes money, dont fix it."

  26. do me sir, uh i mean the aging reversal thing i mean, yeah, and don't make me a mouse ok, thanks

  27. It's called Tru NAD u can get it now and take it

  28. the thing is human body reacts differently. but its not impossible, its like the cup of Christ.

  29. i can see it now. well have some sort of rebound like with the cancer cure in 'i am legend'

  30. The lady who was whining is dumb as rocks

  31. Ana is the only smart person on this panel, the vitamin is Niacinimide it's a vitamin that's 5 bucks at any health food store.

  32. I think that this is all just hype.

  33. Gimme the pill. Shut up & take my money. LOL <3

  34. Tyt are shit, full off it. I am better than you.

  35. It's a fake! Where is young Trump? 🙂 he has enough money to treat himself with this miracle anti-aging drug.

  36. If scientists believe – they are not scientists anymore! The real scientists prove and take process under control.

  37. Yes its something the world needs, as in youth people have no idea the horrors they will feel and face in the latter years, its not like life hands you a book to tell you the literal hell of it to come. And just because the old try to act normal or happy or even smile, trust me they are miserable, even if age is better then death. Just to add a pointer, something for those in the production of anti aging pills and medicine to look into, a new, yet surely to come science. Its gut flora and their creation of nad+ as many secrets and possibilities to be found there.

  38. Bible you'll try to die but you won't die

  39. Maybe straying just a tiny bit from the topic, but am I the only thinks that physical aging doesn’t really mean anything from your number age? Like for example there are people in their 20s who look 40 but then there’s people in their 30s who look like they’re in their 20s. Like it just really depends on the person? Some people either look their age, younger, or older and that number age really doesn’t have much to do with it…? I mean yeah I know that we physically get weaker when we get a lot older but when it comes to appearance it just really dependent on the person. Someone who looks 35 at 20 might as well already be 35 and someone who is 30 but looks 20 might as well be 20

  40. But the real question is, will your period stop after 30 or 40 years.

  41. I just kept cringing so hard on their pronunciation of NAD+

  42. So…where's my eternal youth pills now?? It's been a year. Just sayin

  43. nadh, metformin, resveratroI, meaItonin , mutivit, Iow animaI product diet, mushrooms or chromium picoIinate and the Iist wiII grow for those Iooking for a 120 t00 200 year Iifespan…so…get on board or enjoy death. Aging wiII be eIiminated. The trick is… staying alive until it is!

  44. Hahahaha
    Not working on you!
    Reaction was hilarious man!!!!

  45. Omg, please let me get this for my fibromyalgia!!

  46. And you thought that overpopulation was a problem before this…..Just wait.

  47. How naïve can you possibly be? Age reversal will be internationally banned upon being achieved as it would contribute to overpopulation and even extreme socio-political inequality if made extremely expensive to be only reserved for the rich. Throughout the entire discussion there had been absolutely no reference to any relationship of NAD+ with the activity of telomerase so I doubt the entire picture pertaining to its long term affects is being presented.

  48. Think of death as a exe program once your body reach's specific requirement it can run its shut down process. May be able to stop that exe file. Sorry im probably talking nonsense. Lol
