Scientists in Kazakhstan claim to have developed a drink that they are hailing as an 'elixir of life'.
Dr Jennifer Rampling, an expert on elixirs based in Cambridge said: "He is the latest in a long line of rulers and important people who have hired or been approached by scientists and physicians who claim to have found some kind of elixir capable of prolonging life. "

The 'elixir if life' is available to all of us, well those that bother to consider what they consume. Most of us could extend our life expectancy by improving our diet...
I am a big believer in pre and pro biotics. If you have ever had doses of anti-biotics (and who hasn't at some time) you kill off your gut flora along with the disease you are fighting. Not only is this bad for digestion since bacteria break down compounds in our foods so we can absorb them, it also allows opportunist diseases, like the yeast Candida, to colonize our gut once we are out of balance. So my advise for what it's worth is, if you have to take anti-biotics, take probiotics like yoghurt or kefir during and after your treatment to help reestablish your natural gut flora.
Probably high in rapamycin and resveratrol, an antioxidant cocktail. I had read somewhere that astronauts were given some form of drug to prevent harmful cellular damage from the sun's rays, or possibly from cosmic rays while in orbit. I can't remember where I read it though. A life elixir so to speak, may be a long the same lines.
