It comes as no surprise to seniors and their home care agencies in Prestige that anti-aging treatments are one of the most popular areas of scientific research. Dr. Lenny Guarente is one of the many scientists focusing on anti-aging research, and he has combined decades of work from his lab at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology into a single revolutionary pill.

What Does the Anti-Aging Pill Do?

Dr. Guarente has created a supplement called Basis that is filled with a precursor chemical that the body transforms into nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD), which is a type of protein from a group of enzymes called sirtuins. This enzyme regulates metabolism, which has been shown to have an effect on aging. According to a 2013 research study by Edda Cava, calorie restriction that does not result in malnutrition causes metabolic adaptations that result in a reduction of age related degenerative conditions. These metabolic adaptations can be mimicked with NAD supplementation. Normal levels of NAD sharply decline with age, which means this artificial supplement may be able to keep them at a level associated with youth. A 2013 study from Harvard University found that senior aged mice that were given NAD supplements had cellular tissues comparable to those of a late adolescent mouse within just a week of treatment.

Will the Anti-Aging Pill Work for Humans?

Since the pill contains completely all-natural ingredients, it is going directly to the market without going through human trials or FDA regulation. Guarente believes that studies with humans would take years, and he wants to provide the anti-aging benefits of Basis as soon as possible. Due to the sound scientific theories behind the process and the anti-aging effects in mice, Guarente is confident that it will provide benefits to humans, too. Though he does not guarantee that it will extend life, Guarente believes that his pill will help the elderly to have a better quality of life without the many health problems typically associated with old age.
