Many people want to remain young and have been searching for the elusive magic pill. People have been spending fortunes on questionable anti-aging remedies. Well, now a recent study from Canada shows that anti-aging remedy may already be available at your local grocery store.
Vitamin C is a potent anti-oxidant and a new study reveals that it could prevent premature aging. Canadian researchers showed that regular vitamin C could not only reverse symptoms but prevent accelerated aging in mice. The results of this study suggest that vitamin C may also be helpful in disorders like Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s dementia.
Michel lebel co-researcher of the study from Quebec Cancer Research Centre at the Hotel-Dieu hospital in Quebec City said, "We think that more studies should be done on other types of premature aging diseases to see if the vitamin C could have a positive impact on them as well."
The study recently done on mice who were ill, fat and diabetic recovered to become near normal after receiving vitamin C.
"We think that vitamin C could have a more positive impact on humans since, unlike mice or other animals, we don't produce our own vitamin C," Lebel said.
