Latest Ageing Reverse Research: Fountain of Youth Finally Found?

Did the latest anti-aging research finally discover the proverbial “Fountain of Youth” in the blood plasma of younger organisms?

Since Spanish explorers had been searching for the Fountain of Youth in 16th Century America without signs of success, contemporary medial science have since written off studies into physiological age-reversing as nothing more than a “Quixotic Task”, but not anymore. Research authors of an ongoing study on age-reversing in the United States’ West and East coasts are finally confident of their latest results showing that they might be a way to physiologically reverse the biological aging process. 

Saul Villeda, Ph.D. of the Eli and Edythe Broad Center of Regeneration Medicine and Stem Cell Research – one of the research authors of an ongoing research done on the US West and East coast on injecting blood plasma from younger mice into the hippocampuses of older mice have shown to reverse most of the damage done by Alzheimer’s Disease. Dr. Tony Wyss-Coray of Stanford University School of Medicine – one of the scientists involved in the Ageing Reverse Research – have experimental results showing older mice becoming stronger both physically and mentally after injecting their hippocampuses with blood plasma from much younger mice suggests that “younger blood plasma” recharges the brain. Though to the layman, the research results could suggest the physiological explanation of “vampirism”. 

Despite the research results suggesting the physiological explanation of “vampirism” and of “Bram Stroker’s Dracula”, repeatable lab results have shown that blood plasma of younger mice shows an observable improvement of the brains of older mice compared to the control group. Stronger reaction in the improved performance of the hippocampuses – the part of the brain involver in learning and memory - of older mice injected with blood plasma of younger mice suggests that the procedure could serve as a possible cure in reversing the damage done by Alzheimer’s to the brains of affected humans. The encouraging results point to the possibility of human trials in a few years time.
