    Trichostatin A supplementation Histone deacetylase inhibitor Trichostatin A (TSA) extends the lifespan of Drosophila melanogaster by promoting the hsp22 gene transcription, and affecting the chromatin morphology at the locus of hsp22 gene along the polytene chromosome [15346199]. hsp70 and hsp22 RNA levels are higher in long-lived than in short-lived fly lines. The HDAC inhibitor TSA causes a higher expression of hsp22 and hsp70, and strikingly influences the lifespan in both long and short-lived lines, with variable degrees (up to 25%) [15695762]. Fly +25
    DATS treatment Treatment with 5-10 μM DATS increases lifespan even when treatment is started during young adulthood. DATS increases the lifespan of daf-2 and daf-16 mutants, but not that of eat-2 mutants. DATS treatment leads to the induction of the skn-1 target gene gst-4 and this induction is dependent on skn-1. DATS effect on lifespan is dependent on skn-1 activity in both intestine and ASI neurons [21296648]. Fly
    THC treatment Tetrahydocurcumin extends the lifespan and reduces oxidative stress in male and female fruit flies. THC extends lifespan of Drosophila and inhibits the oxidative stress response by regulating *FOXO* and *Sir2* [22156377]. Fly
    (R)-N-(2-heptyl)-N-methylpropargylamine treatment Addition of 0.66 ng/fly/day (R)-N-(2-heptyl)-N-methylpropargylamine to a sucrose-based diet resulted in no significant effect on lifespan, but lifespan reduction due to galactose feeding is partially suppressed by supplementation with (R)-deprenyl or (R)-N-(2-heptyl)-N-methylpropargylamine [9972869]. Fly
    Metformin treatment In fruit fly feeding metformin to adult s results in robust AMPK activation and reduces lipid stores, but does not increase lifespan in either males or females. Administration of high concentration are even toxic [23077661]. Fly
    Minocycline treatment Treatment with minocycline (0.87mM) prolongs mean, median and maximum lifespan of wild-type (Oregon strain) of both genders. In females mincocycline extend mean and maximum lifespan by 57 and 78%, respectively. In males minocycline results in a mean and maximum lifespan extension by 114 and 28%, respectively [23185716]. Fly +57.1 to +114.3 +28.1 to +78.3
    Resveratrol supplementation Supplementation with resveratrol extends the lifespan [15254550], but not in always [17875315]. Fly
    Black rice extract supplementation In fruit fly, 30 mg/ml black rice extract prolonges mean lifespan by 14% which is accompanied with mRNA up-regulation of SOD1, SOD2, CAT and Rpn11 Rpn11 and with downregulation of Mth [22930061]. Fly +14
    D-chiro-inositol supplementation D-chiro-inositol supplementation to the diet extends adult longevity in both male and female animals. 20 microMolar dose of D-chiro-inositol extends median lifespan by 16.7 (p < 0.001) for males and 13% (p < 0.001) for females. Lifespan extension by D-chrio-inositol is accompanied by protection against oxidative and starvation stresses, improvement in health span, and not reduction in fecundity. Nuclear localization of foxo increases in D-chiro-inositol-fed animals [22843669]. Fly +13 to +16.7
    Pinitol supplementation Pinitol (a 3-methoxy analogue of D-chiro-inositol) supplementation to the diet. For both males and females, a 20 microMolar dose of pinitol significantly extends median lifespan by 13% (p < 0.05) and 12.5% (p < 0.05), respectively. Lifespan extension by pinitol is accompanied by protection against oxidative and starvation stresses, improvement in health span, and no reduction in fecundity. Pinitol increases organismal lifespan of both in dietary restriction and ad libitum conditions. Nuclear localization of foxo increases in pinitol-fed animals. Pinitol treatment significantly activates JNK and S6K, but not AKT [22843669]. Fly +12.5 to +13
    Cynomorium songaricum supplementation The yang-tonifying herbal medicine cynomorium songaricum Repr. (CS) supplementation to the diet extends both the mean and the maximum lifespan of adult females, but insignificantly that of males. In females, maximum lifespan (determined by the 90th survival percentile) is increased by up to 11.4% with 10 mg/mL CS and 5.7% with both 20 and 30 mg/mL Cs. Mean lifespan is significantly extended by 15, 18 and 11% upon treatment with 10, 20, and 30 mg/mL CS, respectively (all P <0.001). Increased lifespan by CS is correlated with higher resistance to oxidative stress and starvation and lower lipid hydroxyperoxids levels as well as accompanied by beneficial effects, such as improved mating readiness, increased fecundity, and suppresion of age-related learning impairment in aged animals [22844336].

    Black tea extract supplementation Supplementation of the diet with black tea extract extends the lifespan by 10% (from 51 to 56 days) and is associated with higher SOD1 and CAT expression [19770032]. Fly +10
    Apple polyphenol supplementation Supplemention of the diet with apple polyphenol significantly extends mean lifespan by 10% and is accompanied by up-regulation of SOD1, SOD2 and CAT as well as downregulation of MTH in aged animals [21319854]. Fly +10
    Blueberry extract supplementation Supplementation of the diet with 5 mg/mL blueberry extract significantly extends the mean lifespan by 10% and is accompanied by an up-regulation of superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase (CAT), and Rpn11 and down-regulationg of Methuselah (MTH). Lifespan is only extended in Oregon-R wild-type but not in SOD(n108) or Cat(n1) mutant strains [22197903]. Fly +10

    LY294002 treatment Treatment of Drosophila imago with 5 micromolar LY294002 increases median (by 14%) and maximum (by 16-22%) lifespan (p<0.001) in females and males, respectively [22661237]. Low dose of LY294002 (5 microM) slightly increase the median and maximum lifespan [20017609]. Fly +14 +16 to +22
    Propargylglycine treatment Propargylglycine (PPG) inhibits gamma-cystathioinase, the second enzyme of the trans-sulfuration pathway (TSP). PPG is a specific suicidal inhibitor of gamma-cystathionase. Gluthatione (GSH) levels are decreased by PPG administration in flies subjected to DR, whereas there is no effect on fully fed animals. PPG robustly suppresses DR lifespan extension, while longevity of fully fed flies is not affected in different strains. Thus, indicating that the effect of PPG is specific to DR. PPG abrogates changes in lifespan that are normally observed when flies are maintained in different dietary concentrations and compositions [21930912]. Fly
    Curcumin treatment In fruit fly, 0.5 an 1.0 mg/g curcumin in the diet increases mean lifespan by 6.2 and 25% in females and by 15.5 and 12.6 in males, respectively. Lifespan extension by curcumin was associated with the increased superoxide dismutase (SOD) activity, upregulation of Ms-SOD and CuZn-SOD genes, and the downregulation of *dInR*, *ATTD*, *Def*, *CecB* and, *DptB* genes as well as reduction of lipofuscin, malondialdehyde and lipid peroxidation [22653297; 23325575].
