The U.S. military is testing a new anti-aging pill that could reduce the rate of aging in humans.
Manufactured by Special Operations Command (SOCOM), the pill is part of the Pentagon’s intent to improve human performance, reports Breaking Defense.
The drug can help produce a high level of an element that is thought to reduce inflammation and rejuvenate cells. SOCOM is expected to launch clinical trials next year.
If the results are successful, the pill could have the potential to really delay aging and even prevent injuries, which would make a big difference, says Lisa Sanders, director of Science and Technology for Special Forces .
To produce the pill, SOCOM is collaborating with the private Metro International Bichem laboratory.
