We may be able to live forever - New Proof Discovered

This is the second time I will be posting about scientist trying to find a way to make humans leave longer. There is so much beauty in this life, although not everyone will agree with me. 

If you didn't read my last post about Lithium was able to prolong lifespan, read it here How Lithium may be able to prolong lifespan.

Due to a study published in the Journal Science on Thursday, Scientists disclosed that they have found proof that an already known vitamin can stop the aging process in the organs in mice, it may also have the capability to treat degenerative diseases in humans. 


The vitamin (nicotinamide riboside) NR, was given to elderly mice, and they were compared to other elderly mice without the vitamin, the result was remarkable as the mice were able to regenerate their muscles and organs and they were also able to live longer. 

The lessened inability of our muscle and organs to repair and regenerate themselves when damaged during old age has lead to many common age-related disorders (also present in mice and other mammals). so this new vitamin will be able to quicken that regeneration process also leading to long life


The scientists, from the University of Ottawa, Brazil and Switzerland, first studied how the mitochondria change with age. (Mitochondria an organelle which is found in most cell and is the powerhouse of every cell keep the cell in full energy).

According to the scientists the mitochondria has to function properly at all time as it is important for stem cells - the cells which are responsible for repair and regeneration - to stay healthy.


“We were able to show that fatigue in stem cells was one of the main causes of poor regeneration or and even degeneration in certain tissues or organs,” Hongbo Zhang, one of the authors of the study, told Medical Xpress.

This is where NR (nicotinamide riboside) comes in, It’s a precursor to a molecule called nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+ for short), which helps mitochondria function.


So, basically, nicotinamide riboside helps to form NAD+. NAD+ keeps the mitochondria working. The mitochondria keeps stem cells healthy. And stem cells help our organs to regenerate.

NR is closely related to heart-healthy vitamin B3. Other studies have shown that it has the ability to boost metabolism and has the same regenerative abilities on the brain and skin cells.

“This work could have very important implications in the field of regenerative medicine,” said Johan Auwerx, head of the study.

The regeneration study seems to be to be progressing as natural solutions and substances are being used to increase the ability of the body to regenerate and restore itself, although the use of nicotinamide riboside seems to be more safer  as it has no negative side effects unlike that of lithium which has dangerous side effects when taken in high doses.
