A natural substance against aging

Swiss researchers have discovered a natural substance similar to vitamin B3 that stimulates stem cell activity in older mice. Mice treated with the substance showed a strong improvement in muscle regeneration and their life was extended. Parallel work also showed a similar effect on the brain and the skin. Studies are ongoing to search for the possible negative effects of this substance.
