A sweet way to decrease blood pressure/sugar and extend lifespan: Sugar-based Lifespan extension therapy:  D-Allose, a C-3 epimer of glucose,  prolongs mammalian life span, via down regulation of angiotensin II type I receptor (AT1R), 4/April/2018, 12.19 pm

Significance of the study: It has been shown earlier that antagonizing angiotensin II type I receptor (AT1R) expression may prolong mammalian life span. Further, it has been shown […]
