DHEA/deprenyl  effects on aging.
DHEA inhibits a number of enzymes implicated in the general control of
the levels of oxidative stress.  These include monoamine oxidase and
glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase.  Why inhibition of these enzymes
should slow aging (assuming it does) beats me.  Maybe it!s just to do
with slowing down metabolic rate?
