    Aspirin / eugenol can remove lipofuscin from cells

    One of the visible hallmarks of aging is the accumulation of so-called "age pigment" or "aging spots", commonly known in scientific circles as lipofuscin.

    Alcohol Brain Damage Due To Iron Accumulation; Vitamin B1 To The Rescue

    Vitamin B2 (riboflavin) Reduces Lipofuscin, May Extend Lifespan

    There are few reliable treatments of the so-called "age spots" officially known as lipofuscin.
