Help may be at hand for those of us who want to keep the wrinkles and grey hair at bay and slow down process of aging. New research suggests that eating green vegetables can ward off the signs of aging. Researchers say that broccoli, cabbage and avocado in particular contain compound that helps slow down rate at which we age. key compound, present in green fruit and vegetables, is called NMN. It helps slow down physical signs of getting old. Scientists say NMN can also rejuvenate metabolism. It helps replenish levels of energy production in our body that deteriorate as we age. It also helps reduce weight gain and deterioration of vision.

research was conducted by scientists at Washington University School of Medicine in USA. Researcher professor Shinichiro Imai said: "We have shown way to slow physiological decline that we see in aging mice. This means older mice have metabolism and energy levels resembling that of younger mice." Professor Imai said tests on mice showed that NMN reduced typical signs of aging, including decline in strength of skeletal muscle, poor liver function, lower bone density and weakening eyesight. reason our metabolism changes over time and leads to reduced energy levels has baffled scientists for decades. This latest research casts new light on this mystery.
