The drugs are synthetic versions of resveratrol, found in red wine, an organic chemical believed to have an anti-aging effect, by boosting activity of a protein called SIRT1.
GSK, the pharmaceutical firm, is testing them on people with particular medical conditions, namely Type II diabetes and psoriasis, a serious skin condition.
David Sinclair, professor of genetics at Harvard University, said aging might not actually be an "irreversible affliction".
He said: Now we are looking at whether there are benefits for those who are already healthy.
"Things there are also looking promising. We're finding that aging isn't the irreversible affliction that we thought it was.

My stepdad always said, “Stick with the grape.”
No, but you can work to 149 1/2.
Sure, a pill might get you to 150 but Soretoro’s death panel will stop you at 35 or an ingrown toenail whichever comes first.
Do I have to?
90 years of sagginess
Helen Thomas already discovered the fountain of youth..drinking virgin blood for the past 300 years.
They’ve already trademarked the name- Methuzelone
Who wants to, not me.
This can’t happen unless people work to age 100. There isn’t enough money in the world to keep the Baby Boomers going this long.
Instead, at 85, they’ll be getting a pink slip telling them they’ve been dumped from ObamaCare. Problem solved.
I’m already taking supplements with resveratrol, red wine & grape seed extracts.
I wonder how much they are using in these tests? Recommended dose of the capsules I’m using is one day.
I’m not a physician; do your own due diligence, or consult a doctor:
So do I — in the form of cognac.
I prefer the red wine delivery system ... you remain happy whether the stuff is reducing your aging processes or not, and it makes the gals a lot prettier. Unfortunely, it doesn’t mke you any handsomer ... unless she’s drinking the medicine with you!
Yep. That’s what I want. Barbara Streisand, Cher and Jane Fonda all 140 years old sitting on a park bench asking the young guys that go by if they would “Like to see where the elephant keeps his peanuts?”
Thanks, but no thanks.
Who in their right mind would want to live to be 150 during these times?! Give me a pill that subtracts 50 years so I don’t have to worry about having no savings or social security to live on with the thief in the WH trying to leave us broke and penniless without social security to live on if I live long enough to use it (they keep wanting to move the goal posts so the recipients will die before they ever get to use it if it’s even there by that time).
Yeh like who lives to 150 or even comes close? Look at the late Jack Lalanne, an avid lifetime exercise lifestyle, extremely healthy diet and husband to one wife. He lived to age 95 God bless him but he didn’t even crack the century mark.
Life in the birthday suit has a shelf life and no one escapes it—albeit one can delay the inevitable at times.
