NR Shows Ability to Promote DNA Repair and Increase Lifespan by 25% in Mice

The ability to repair DNA damage decreases over time, causing an accumulation of mutations that can affect cellular function, viability, and an increase in the aging process.  In a new study, mice engineered to age quickly were tested to see which compounds were best at promoting DNA repair. Nicotinamide Riboside (NR) shown to increase lifespan […]
