    Considering how many of us have weird heart things going on, the ability of a cheap drug like metformin to increase vascular stem cells seems to have a lot of relevance.

    I still do wonder about the effect of metformin on the mitochondria, but until I understand the mechanism, I'm not going to worry about it too much. Study after study has shown metformin is a useful drug in a variety of ways that promote longevity.

    It's interesting that Life Extension recommends it for everyone. But when I asked my doc for it, no go. Said it had to many side effects when I don't have diabetes. So couldn't get it. And everyone I know who is on it has really bad naseau.
