IRC Rapamycin is a drug given to organ transplant recipients that is also used by people trying to extend lifespan. It has been shown in studies to extend the lifespan of pretty much every organism it has been tested on.

It's mechanism of action is too complicated for me to recal but there are lots of explanations online.

It's a super interesting molecule that has a very interesting history as it was discovered next to a statue on Easter Island.

I believe it promotes autophagy and reduces senescence. Probably other things too, but those are big ones.

So if I take liposomal vitamin C it might also extend my lifespan?
