Following past research about reducing the load of damaged cells and prolong lifespan and improve health, it has been shown that treatment of aged mice with the natural product Fisetin, found in many fruits and vegetables, also has significant positive effects on health and lifespan
Researchers from the University of Minnesota Medical School researchers found a natural product, called Fisetin, diminishes the level of these damaged cells in the body. As people age, they accrue impaired cells. When they get to a certain level of damage, they go through an aging method of their own, called cellular senescence. The cells also release inflammatory factors that convey to the immune system to clear those damaged cells.
The paper, "Fisetin is a senotherapeutic that extends health and lifespan," was freshly published in EBioMedicine. In addition to presenting that the drug works, this is the first demo that displays the effects of the drug on explicit subsets of these damaged cells within a certain tissue.
