A Breakthrough “Anti-Aging” Substance was Discovered

On December 7, the scientific journal Nature Metabolism published a major research result “Flavonoid procyanidin C1 has aging therapeutic activity and increases life span in mice”. Public information shows that the PCC1 project is the collaborative result of the Shanghai Institute of Nutrition and Health CAS, BY-HEALTH Nutrition and Health Research Institute, the Buck Institute for Research on Aging, and the Mayo Clinic. According to Zhang Xuguang, director of BY-HEALTH’s Science and Technology Center, the team screened nearly 1,000 natural products and finally discovered PCC1, which can significantly improve the senescence-associated secretory phenotype (SASP) and selectively, more efficiently, and safely removing senescent cells.
