New Delhi: Scientists have discovered a coenzyme which reportedly possess the potential to delay the process of ageing.

The research conducted at the Center for Healthy Ageing and the American National Institute of Health found that coenzyme NAD+ plays a main role in ageing processes.

The researchers when injected the coenzyme in mice and roundworm, it not only postponed the onset of ageing but also extended life.

The researchers found that this new knowledge will eventually be able to help patients with Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.

As we live longer and longer, a lot of people are occupied with their state of health and not least, quality of life in old age.

Therefore, researchers all over the world are trying to understand ageing mechanisms, as this knowledge may eventually help to postpone physical ageing and extend life.
