Eating sea squirts reverses signs of cognitive decline and aging

Study Finds:

Adding sea squirts to your diet could help reverse the signs of aging in your body and the brain, a new study reveals. A team from China and the United States found that supplements containing sea squirts — or ascidians — dramatically improved the cognitive health of mice. It even reversed the graying of their fur!

Ascidians are part of an invertebrate family called Ascidiacea. They’re marine animals that often look like potato-shaped tubes which often live in reefs, pier pilings, rocks, or even a ship’s hull.


Now, would you eat them??? (me, nah!)
