Organic Skincare for men should work when used topically. The idea is to combine topical and ingested anti aging ingredients to fight the battle against age. This “new” compound in the vegetable ‘not only slows down vision loss and middle-age spread’, but also experts believe the loss of energy production is a key driver of ageing.
What broccoli contains is something called nicotinamide mononucleotide compensated (NMN).
It has been suggested by this study that physical signs of ageing could be slowed down by a compound found in broccoli, cabbage and avocado.
MNM in this study was found to slow down the deterioration of liver and eye function, bone density and the metabolism. While it was also found to prevent laboratory mice from gaining weight as they aged – despite consuming more food. Nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN) compensated for the loss of energy production, which experts believe is a key driver of the body’s ageing process.
Researchers tested the compound on older mice to see if it helped to slow their physical ageing signs. They expected to find out if it could alter their metabolism in older and younger mice. It was found that only older mince were getting an improvement when consuming MNM.
The study hope that ‘Since human cells rely on this same energy production process’. The study was also hopeful to create a method to help people remain healthier as they age.’ With age, the body is known to lose its ability to make a key element required for producing energy – known as nicotinamide adenine dinulceotide (NAD).
Previous research has shown NAD levels decrease as mice age and it is not effective when given directly to mice. To boost levels, the researchers had to go one step backwards in the supply chain to find NMN. While it was also found to prevent laboratory mice from gaining weight as they aged. Despite consuming more food, suggesting it altered their metabolism.
This is quickly converted to NAD in multiple tissues, scientists found. Researchers warned the compound was only beneficial to older mice and it showed no promise to younger animals. Co-author Dr Jun Yoshino said: ‘When we give NMN to the young mice, they do not become healthier young mice ‘NMN supplementation has no effect in the young mice because they are still making plenty of their own NMN. ‘We suspect that the increase in inflammation that happens with ageing reduces the body’s ability to make NMN and, by extension, NAD.’
The study was published in the journal Cell Metabolism.
