Dietary Supplementation of Citric acid (monohydrate) Improves Health Span in Drosophila melanogaster

Komal Panchal, Kesha Patel, Anand K. Tiwari.

Abstract
In the present study we have shown that supplementation of citric acid reduces body weight of male and female flies, improves locomotor activity of Alzheimeric flies, reduces oxidative stress and increases FA synthesis in Drosophila. Thus, we concluded that supplementation of citric acid (monohydrate) improves health span in Drosophila.

Key words: Drosophila melanogaster; Citric acid monohydrate; Body weight; Locomotor; Oxidative stress; Fatty acid synthesis
