Ahh, science trials in reference to dietary supplements.
Isn't it wonderful? Hopefully the scientific method in supplements catches on.
Oh, what, I forgot. The Scientific Methos is the work of Evil Pharma stocked with allopathic doctors.
Human dietary supplement linked to longer life in mice
Updated Wednesday, April 9th 2014 at 08:49 GMT +3
An over-the-counter supplement designed to ease osteoarthritis
prolonged the lifespan of lab mice
by nearly a tenth, scientists said Tuesday.
This would translate into an average eight-year longevity gain if the result could be repeated in humans, Swiss researchers reported in the journal Nature Communications.
A team led by Michael Ristow at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zurich used a common dietary supplement called glucosamine on laboratory mice
after testing it on worms.
Glucosamine is a naturally occurring compound found in the lubricating fluid which surrounds joints.
It is widely sold over the counter as a supplement to combat osteoarthritis
, the commonest form of arthritis, although studies into its efficacy have thrown up mixed results.
Ristow's team first tested a tiny dose on a well-researched lab animal, a nematode worm called Caenorhabditis elegans, and found it extended its lifespan by some five percent.
