Pomegranate finally reveals its powerful anti-aging secret
(Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne) Are pomegranates really the superfood that will counteract aging? Scientists from EPFL and the company Amazentis wanted to explore the issue. They discovered that a molecule in pomegranates, transformed by microbes in the gut, enables muscle cells to protect themselves against one of the major causes of aging. In animals, the effect is nothing short of amazing. Clinical trials are underway, but these initial findings have already been published in the journal Nature Medicine.
