To confirm their hypothesis, researchers gave fizetin
aged mice. The duration of the healthy life of mice has increased

a smaller dose or give the substance less frequently. This study

Researchers tested the effects of fizetin on adipose tissue
human in vitro to determine how substance
interacts with human cells.
Fizetin was able to reduce the number of aging cells in the fatty
human tissue, which suggests a similar effect
on the body as a whole.
Also, scientists have concluded that the substances contained in
fruits and vegetables are few for effective elimination of aging cells.
They have yet to develop an optimal dosage.
