    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 In male mice supplementation with tetrahydrocurcumin beginning at the age of 13 month increases the mean lifespan by an average of 84 days, i.e. an increase of 11.7% [17516143]. Mouse +11.7
    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
    2-MEA treatment Addition of 1% by weight 2-MEA to the diet of male LAF mice, started shortly after weaning, increases average lifespan by approximately 30%, but does not extend maximum lifespan [5723482; 11795501]. Addition of 2-MEA to the maternal diet of female mice increases the lifespan of male and female offspring by 15 and 8%, respectively [Harman & Eddy, 1979; 11795501]. Addition of 2-MEA of an antioxidant mixture containing ethoxyquin and 2-MEA to the diet of dietary restricted mice shortens lifespan approximately 20% [2394907]. Mouse +30
    2-ME treatment Animals fed a diet supplemented with 2-mercaptoethanol (2-ME) exhibit an increased mean and maximum lifespan [6334792]. T-cell-dependent immune responses are higher in the 2-ME-fed mice compared to the controls when the animals are young. The accumulation of fluorescent products of lipid peroxidation damage is also delayed in the lymphocytes of the 2-ME-fed mice and tumor onset and incidence is reduced in these animals [6334792]. Mouse
    (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
    LA treatment LA confers a memory effect, by fixing the lifespan of previous feeding regimen. When animals are switched early in life (12 months) from DR to AL and supplemented with α-lipoic acid the DR typical lifespan extension is maintained, but switching early from AL supplemented with α-lipoic acid to DR blocks the lifespan extending effect [18486188]. LA exhibits the ability to compensate for age-related, long-term memory deficits in old rats [8309958]. Rat
    Diabenol treatment In female NMRI and transgenic HER-2/neu mice supplementation of diabenol with drinking water 5 times a week since the age of 2 months, increases survival and inhibits spontaneous carcinogenesis. In NMRI diabenol does not influence body weight gain dynamics, food and water consumption, but slowed down age-related disturbances in estrous function and increases the lifespan of all and 10% most long-living ones. Diabenol treatment in NMRI mice also inhibits spontaneous tumor incidence (mammary and lymphomas mainly) and increases mammary tumor latency. Diabenol treatment slows down age-related changes in estrous function in HER-2/neu mice, but fails to influence survival and slightly inhibited the incidence and decrease the size of mammary adenocarcinoma metastasis into the lung [15754958]. Mouse
    Metformin treatment In rats metformine treatment reduces body weight significantly (despite similar food intake) but fails to significantly extend the lifespan at any quantile (25th, 50th, 75th, or 90th), overall or maximum lifespan (p > 0.05) [20304770]. Rat
    Metformin treatment Chronic treatment of female transgenic HER-2/neu mice with metformin slightly decreases food consumption but fails to reduce body weight or temperature, slows down age-related rise in blood glucose and triglycerides level, as well as the age-related switch-off of estrous function, prolongs mean lifespan by 8% (p < 0.05), the mean lifespan of last 10% survivors by 13.1% and maximum lifespan by 1 month. Metformin treatment significantly decreases incidence and size of mammary adenocarcinomas and increases the mean latency of the tumors [16125352]. Chronic treatment of female outbred SHR mice with metformin slightly modified food consumption but decreases the body weight after the age of 20 months, slows down the age-related switch-off of estrous function, increases mean lifespan by 37.8% mean lifespan of the last 10% survivor by 20.8%, and maximum lifespan by 2.8 month (+10.3%). Treatment with metformin fails to influence blood estradiol concentration and spontaneous tumor incidence in female SHR mice [18728386]. In female SHR mice, metformin increases lifespan lifespan and postpones tumors when started at young and middle but not at old age. Chronic treatment of female outbred SHR mice with metformin started at the age of 3, 9 or 15 months decreases body temperature and postpones age-related switch-off of estrous function. Treatment with metformin started at the age of 3 months increases mean lifespan by 14% and maximum lifespan by 1 month. Treatment started at the age of 9 months insignificantly increases lifespan by only 6%, whereas the treatment started at the age of 15 months fails to increase lifespan. The mean lifespan of tumor-free mice increases by 21% (started at 3 months), by 7% (started at 9 months) and in contrast is reduced by 13% (started at 15 months). If started at 3 and 9 months, metformin delays the first tumors by 22% and 25%, correspondingly [21386129]. Transgenic FVB/N female mice carrying HER-2/neu mammary cancer gene receiving metformin with drinking water 5 days a week starting from the age of 2 months exhibit a slight reduced food consumption without change in water consumption and dynamics of weight gain. Their mean lifespan increases by 8% in 10% of the long-lived mice it is prolonged y 13.1% and the maximum lifespan is prolonged by 1 month. The total incidence of mammary adenocarcinoma and their multiplicity does not change under the effect of metformin, while the latency of tumor development increases and the mean diameter of tumors decreases [16224592]. Chronic treatment of inbred 129/Sv mice with metformin slightly modifies food consumption but fails to influence the dynamics of body weight, decreases by 13.4% the mean lifespan of make mice and slightly increases the mean lifespan of female mice (by 4.4%). Metformin treatment fails to influence tumor incidence in male 129/Sv mice, decreases by 3.5 times the incidence of malignant neoplasms in female mice while somehowwhat stimulate formation of benign vascualr tumors in the latter [21164223]. Mouse
    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
    Metformin treatment Metformin treatment extends healthspan, slows lipofuscin accumulation, extends mean lifespan and prolongs healthful locomotory ability in a dose-dependent manner as well as reduces fecundity. AMPK and its activating kinase LKB1 are essential for these health benefits. Oxidative stress-responsive transcription factor SKN-1/Nrf2 is essential for metformin-confered healthspan too as it must be expressed in both neurons and intestines [20090912]. Worm
    Carboxyfullerene SOD mimetic treatment Administration of a small-molecule synthetic enzyme superoxide dismutase mimetic to wild-type (i.e. non-transgenicm non-senescence accelerated) mice starting at middle age significantly extends lifespan and reduces age-associated oxidative stress and mitochondrial radical production. Treatment also improves performance on Morris water maze learning and memory task and therefore rescues age-related cognitive impairment [17079053].
    C3 treatment Tris-malonic acid derivate of the fullerene C60 molecule (C3) increases the lifespan of Sod2(-/-) mice by 300% [15451059]. Mouse +300
    C60-olive oil treatment Oral administration of C60 dissolved in olive oil (0.8 mg/ml) at reiterated doses (1.7 mg/kg of body weight) for just about 7 months to rats not only does not entail chronic toxicity but it almost doubles the lifespan. The effects on lifespan is mainly due to the attenuation of age-associated increases in oxidative stress. Dissolved C60 is absorbed by the gastro-intestinal tract and eliminated in a few tens of hours [22498298]. C60-olive oil can increase the mean, median and maximum lifespan by 114, 91 and 74%. C60-olive oil extends the lifespan of animals with a probability of 0.999 and 0.995 with respect to water and olive oil treatments, respectively [22498298]. The GSSG/GSH ratio of animals treated by C60-oil is significantly less (about twice as less) as compared to controls [22498298]. Rat +113.8 +90.9 +73.7
    Olive oil treatment Oral treatment with Olive oil (at the age of 10 month for 7 months) increases mean, median and maximum lifespan by 41, 18 and 53%, respectively. Olive oil extends the lifespan with a probability of 0.99 [22498298]. Rat +41.4 +18.2 +52.6
    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
    concA treatment The specific V-ATPase inhibitor concanatmycin A (concA) blocks VMA1 or VPH2 overexpression mutations ability to produce normal, tubular mitochondria. Treatment of young cells causes vacuolar acidity and loss of mitochondrial depolarization. Loss of ΔΨ is followed by mitochondrial fragmentation and aggregation that resembles mitochondrial phenotypes present in aged cells [23172144]. Yeast
    DDS treatment Treatment with DDS either for the entire lifetime or only during the adult period after the L4 stage extends significantly increases mean and maximum lifespan [20974969] DDS causes the delay of aging, reduces lipofuscin accumulation and decreases the level of a mitochondrial complex as well as lowers oxygen consumption and enhances oxidative stress resistance [20974969]. DDS-conferred lifespan extension is independent of daf-16 and DR (eat-2 mutants) [20974969]. Worm
    Melatonin supplementation Melatonin administrated with drinking water increases anti-oxidant capacity of the brain and prolongs the mean lifespan by 20% of males but not females [11462771]. Mouse 0 to +20
    N-acetyl-serotonin administration N-acetyl-serotonin (a melatonin precursor) administrated with drinking water increases anti-oxidant capacity of the brain and prolongs the mean lifespan by 20% of males but not females [11462771]. Mouse 0 to +20
    Resveratrol supplementation Resveratrol conteracts the detrimental effects of a high-fat diet in mice an decreases the risk of death by 30% and thereby reverting it to the level of normal diet. It also partially corrected a subset of the abnormal gene expression profile and insulin as well as glucose metabolism [17086191]. Although resveratrol has a range of beneficial effects in elderly mice, it does not increase the longevity of *ad libitum* fed mice when started midlife [18599363]. Even at high doses and when started in young adulthood reseveratrol supplementation does not increase lifespan on a normal diet [17578509; 20974732]. Mouse
    Resveratrol supplementation A maximum dose of resveratrol increases the median lifespan by 56% [16461283]. Fish +56
    Resveratrol supplementation Supplementation with resveratrol extends the lifespan [15254550], but not in always [17875315]. Fly
