Study Finds Corylin Can Prolong Lives 「補骨脂寧」可有效延壽 長庚研究登國際期刊

A research team from Chang Gung University recently found that Chinese medicine ingredient corylin is capable of extending lives.


This is P. corylifolia, a Chinese traditional medicine ingredient. It contains corylin, which a research team from Chang Gung University has confirmed has life prolonging properties. An international periodical has affirmed the results, raising the profile of Chinese medicine. The team has also filed for patents.

Chen Chin-chuan, Assoc. Professor, Grad. Institute of Natural Products, CGU: “P. corylifolia contains many compounds, and we appraised the composition of 22 purified compounds. We discovered that it contains a compound called corylin, which can prolong life.”

The team found that corylin extended the life expectancy of mice on high-fat diets by 20 to 30 percent. Humans have an average life expectancy of 75, so it's equivalent to extending it to 90 to 97.5.

Chen Chin-chuan, Assoc. Professor, Grad. Institute of Natural Products, CGU: “Corylin not only prolongs life, but it also gives you a healthy long life. That's why we think this is a pretty important discovery, and it has been affirmed internationally.”

The team said that mice that consumed corylin lived longer lives and had lower levels of cholesterol, triglycerides, and blood sugar. They also displayed improved exercise capacity and muscle strength, allowing for healthy aging. The team's long-term goal is to develop medications to treat aging-associated diseases. No clinical trials have been performed, so the public is discouraged from purchasing and using corylin on their own.

 

 

 

盤子裡黑黑一顆顆,看起來不怎麼起眼的中藥補骨脂,裡面有一種成份補骨脂寧,由長庚大學中醫系天然藥物所副教授陳金銓所領導的團隊實驗證實可延年益壽,研究成果不但獲國際期刊肯定,提升中醫藥能見度,也已申請專利。

陳金銓表示:「因為補骨脂裡面的成分非常的多,我們也去鑑定了22種純化物的成分,最終發現裡面有一個成分叫做補骨脂寧,可以有效延長壽命。」

研究團隊發現,中藥成份補骨脂寧,能讓高脂飲食小鼠,增加20%到30%的壽命,若以人類平均壽命75歲推算,相當於延長到90到97.5歲。

陳金銓說:「補骨脂寧,它不只是延長壽命,而且它是健康的延長壽命,所以我們認為這是一個蠻重要的發現,也被受到國際的一些肯定。」

團隊表示,服用補骨脂寧的小鼠,除了延長壽命外,也有效降低膽固醇、三酸甘油脂、血糖,和提升運動能力和肌力,幫助健康老化。長期目標則希望研發出治療老人相關疾病藥物,但也提醒研究尚未進行臨床時,請民眾勿自行購買服用。
