In 2022, the US military will test a “anti-aging pill” to improve “troop mission readiness.”
THE UNITED STATES ARMY will soon begin testing on a “anti-aging pill” that could delay some of the natural regressive effects of aging.
The research will be overseen by the US Special Operations Command (Socom), which supervises America’s Spec Ops personnel. Performance testing will begin next year, according to Navy Commander Tim Hawkins, a Socom spokesperson.
“Pre-clinical safety and dosage investigations have been completed in preparation of follow-on performance testing in fiscal year 2022,” he stated.
According to Mr Hawkins, the capsule contains a “human performance tiny molecule.”
He explained that it will take the form of a nutraceutical supplement for citizens as well as military personnel.
“These efforts are not about producing physical features that don’t already exist naturally,” Mr Hawkins noted.
“This is about boosting our forces’ mission readiness by enhancing performance attributes that generally deteriorate with age.
“In essence, we are working with leading industry partners and clinical research institutions to develop a nutraceutical in the form of a pill that is suitable for a variety of uses by both civilians and military members, with potential benefits such as increased endurance and faster recovery from injury.”
