Experts have just revealed that there are certain antioxidant supplements that can turn back the biological clock. Check out the latest reports about this below.

Antioxidant supplements benefits

It has been reported that age-related decline in cognitive and muscle function continues to be a significant challenge for the field of healthcare.

Healthcare costs related to the treatment of age-related cognitive decline and muscle weakness are projected to rise significantly in the future.

One of the main causes of age-related health decline is oxidative stress. It refers to the progressive damage caused by oxygen-free radicals to cells.

Certain compounds found in foods, known as antioxidants, have the ability to neutralize harmful oxygen-free radicals within our bodies.

Consuming foods that are rich in antioxidants is known to help reduce cell damage and slow down age-related health decline. However, in cases where people do not consume an antioxidant-rich diet, they often turn to antioxidant supplements that can provide comparable or even greater health protection.

A group of scientists, headed by Professor Koji Fukui from Shibaura Institute of Technology (SIT) and including Dr. Fukka You from Gifu University, recently made a discovery.

They found that providing a blend of antioxidant supplements to elderly mice significantly enhanced their spatial cognition, short-term memory, and muscle endurance.

The study was published in the International Journal of Molecular Sciences, in the Special Issue ‘Antioxidants in Health and Diseases’.

“In this study, significant improvements were observed in the spatial learning ability and short-term memory in supplement-treated aged mice. Long-term intake of blended antioxidant supplements may be effective, even considering the effects of aging and related increased oxidation in the body,” explains Prof. Fukui, the lead researcher of the study.

Memory loss is often linked to debilitating diseases that disproportionately affect the elderly, such as Alzheimer’s. Recent research on mice shows that antioxidant supplements may help improve memory and prevent memory loss in humans.

More research is required on the matter and we also suggest that you check out the original article in order to learn more details about these amazing discoveries.
