Reduced Oxygen Intake Linked to Extended Lifespan


May 25, 2023

Summary: Researchers revealed a correlation between reduced oxygen intake, or ‘oxygen restriction,’ and extended lifespan in lab mice.

The study found that mice in an oxygen-restricted environment lived about 50% longer than those in normal oxygen levels. The oxygen-restricted mice also experienced delayed onset of aging-associated neurological deficits.

The study, however, did not establish the exact mechanism through which oxygen restriction prolongs lifespan.
