"Their research focused on a chemical called NAD. Its levels naturally drop in all cells of the body with age.

The team showed this disrupted the function of the cell's in-built powerstations, mitochondria, leading to lower energy production and ageing.

Experiments showed that boosting NAD levels, by giving mice a chemical which they naturally convert into NAD, could reverse the sands of time.

One week of youth-medication in two-year-old mice meant their muscles became akin to those of a six-month-old in terms of mitochondrial function, muscle wastage, inflammation and insulin resistance.

Dr Ana Gomes, from the department of genetics at Harvard Medical School, said: "We believe this is quite an important finding." "
