Nestlé Scientists Discover Molecular Footprint For Long Life

September 20, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
Swiss and Italian scientists working at two Nestlé research facilities have pinpointed physiological markers in the bodies of a group of centenarians that could hold the key to a long lifespan. The group were characterized by complex changes in the levels of lipids in the body, metabolism of amino acids, and the function of their intestinal tract. The scientists said the substances in the centenarians’ blood and urine suggested that they may have a better anti-oxidative response and better cellular detoxification mechanisms. The group of centenarians, all from Italy, numbered 30 men and 113 women, born between 1900 and 1908.
