The medication would help boost levels of a compound, which decrease inflammation, slow neurodegeneration and rejuvenate cells.

SOCOM is expected to begin clinical trials next year. 

If results are successful, the pill could have the potential 'to truly delay aging, truly prevent onset of injury - which is just amazingly game changing,' Lisa Sanders, director of science and technology for Special Operations Forces, acquisition, technology & logistics (SOF AT&L) told Breaking Defense.
