Scientists and biologists are forever engaged in research seeking answers to retard the aging process and age related illnesses like arthritis, liver dysfunction, stroke, diabetes, Parkinsons disease, heart complaints and many more.
Now chemicals extracted from various plants could offer a break through.
Six groups of molecules from certain plants appear to have the most age delaying effects.
The basis of the research is to screen the extracts and utilise these to observe how they can increase the chronological lifespan of yeast. Why yeast one may ask, which does not always have a good image conjuring up images of fungal infections such a Candida, Ringworm and Thrush.
Many of us are unaware that yeast is vital in keeping the digestive system healthy and in balancing the immune system. In fact yeast is a part of a healthy mix of bacteria in the gut. Patients having a multitude of complaints are often amazed that the Specialist or health practitioner will target the digestive system for solutions.
Interestingly, at a cellular level, the aging process of yeast and humans progresses in much the same way, this being significant in scientific research. Besides yeast more complex organisms like fish, mice and human cells are also studied.
Currently, identification of individual chemicals in plants will assist in establishing their anti-aging powers.
