"The mineral also plays a role in DNA synthesis, protein synthesis, and helps our body to heal its wounds. Zinc can limit inflammation (http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/248423.php) and oxidative stress, which means that it may also protect against cardiovascular disease and some cancers (http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/info/cancer-oncology/)."

"As little as 4 milligrams of supplementary zinc every day could prevent DNA damage, a new study suggests."

"Leukocyte DNA strand breaks were also reduced with increased dietary zinc, which suggests that a modest increase in zinc reduces the everyday "wear and tear" of the DNA."

I hesitated about even posting this. This is a study based on 18 men. Like so many of these kinds of studies the results would have to be replicated by studying a much larger group of people, men and women.

Very interesting and easy to implement, if it works. Definitely a bigger study by others is in place. We've been tricked too many times before.

Yes. Zinc.
Balance it with copper suplements (never the same day) and always Melatonin in the night to sleep that chelate it all (important due toxicity).
So far the results have been. Slowed aging and muscle mass gains uncommon for age. lets see where it leads. :)
