Metformin the wonder drug


A while ago I had an interesting conversation with a brain surgeon about Metformin, a Type 2 diabetes drug. He is convinced that Metformin is one of the best and safest drugs available that will enhance the longevity and health of people without diabetes.

Recently there has been a lot of talk of Metformin inhibiting cancer growth. There has also been research in the past about Metformin in weight control.

So why is Metformin so good? Some doctors believe that everyone should be on Metformin. It has virtually no side effects and there has been a lot of talk in the research community about its anti-aging properties. Metformin is also available as an inexpensive generic prescription.

Metformin is an anti-inflammatory, which at a cellular level is what prevents aging. Less stress to the cells means that they will remain healthy and young. Taking a Metformin and an aspirin a day may be the best supplement to your diet.
