A recent study from the Institute of Healthy Ageing, Centre for Diabetes and Endocrinology, Department of Medicine, University College London, London WC1E 6JJ, UK shows that “Ribosomal protein S6 kinase 1 signaling regulates mammalian life span.” This study was published in the 2 October 2009 issue of the Journal “Science” (I.F: 31.477 ) by Prof Dominic J. Withers, Dr. Selman C and others.

On the foundation of this interesting finding, Dr L Boominathan PhD, Director-cum-chief Scientist of GBMD, reports, for the first time, that: Natural product Life-extension therapy: Bergapten (5-methoxypsoralen), a natural psoralen derivative present in many fruits and vegetables, inhibits the expression of Ribosomal protein S6 kinase 1 (p70S6 Kinase) and extends mammalian life span via up regulation of its target gene


This study suggests a natural product-based life extension therapy. Bergapten, by increasing the expression of its target gene, it may decrease the expression of Ribosomal protein S6 kinase 1 (p70S6 Kinase). Thereby, it may promote (1) resistance to bone, immune, and motor dysfunction; and (2) insulin sensitivity.

Thus, pharmacological formulations encompassing “Bergapten or it analogues“ can be used to extend the lifespan of an individual.
