Japanese plants eaten by Samurai can slow down the aging process

ON A Japanese plant that according to folklore was the key to a long, healthy life could really be the secret of aging, according to a new study.

The rare Angelica Keiskei Koidzumi – known as Ashitaba – has been a staple diet of the Samurai diet for millennia and has such rejuvenating properties that a leaf that is cut off in the morning will regrow the next day.

Now, scientists looking for compounds that could slow down aging have found that one of the best in the Ashitaba plant can be found, which is translated as "The Leaf of Tomorrow."

Known as DMC, the mixture, when administered to fruit flies and worms, prolonged its lifespan by 20 percent and prevented people from aging.
