The Aspirin pro-drug aspirinamine penetrates skin, blood-brain, blood-milk, and other membrane barriers thousands of times faster than aspirin. Aspirinamine has shown a very strong anti-diabetic (both type I and type II) activity in NOD and STZ mouse models, and exerts neuroprotective effects after stroke.
It increased the maximal life span of C57BL/6 mice by 26% (at dose of 15mg/kg, equal to 10mg/kg of aspirin) and 27% (at dose of 45mg/kg, equal to 30mg/kg of aspirin).
