This fruit has shown up in a concoction able to induce DNA restoration. Deep cellular restoration would easily support the benefits noted here.
I have also noted Gjoji berries as well and they may even be related.
This is all an obvious core step in life extension itself.. Natural sources are certainly indicated and anything that ameliorates the effects of aging needs to be attended to. The known effects of old age do speak clearly to biological deficiency problems in particular long before we actuality run out any putative time clock.
Unfortunately, a lot of this must be very subtle and this begs real difficulty in advancing. We hear of ancient elixirs which restored the individual to his prime. The very name recommends a fruit based concoction used as a tonic and restorative.
This is likely a worthy ingredient. Add in ascorbic acid that our body does not make and we are getting a real formulation.

Research shows a significant antidiabetic and renoprotective effect from a chloroform extract of myrobalan, which enhanced insulin secretion from the β-cells in the islets of Langerhans, or by an extra pancreatic mechanism, which supports its traditional usage.10, 15 The cardiotonic activity of myrobalan fruits has been demonstrated. Myrobalan increases the force of contractions and cardiac output without altering heart rate.16 The benefits of myrobalan for the skin have also been shown. It is effective for healing wounds and treats wounds quickly, as indicated by the increased rates of contraction and decreased periods of epithelialization. Biochemical studies show a significant increase in total protein, DNA, and collagen content in the granulation tissues of treated wounds. In addition, myrobalan has antimicrobial and antioxidant properties. These results confirm the beneficial effects of myrobalan on the acceleration of healing.17
