Often abbreviated to TATP, Tricetyltriparanol is a simple cholesterol inhibitor, albeit is so effective at its job – and at the con-committant reduction of heart disease – that it qualifies as an anti-agathic, which is to say, it is a drug that prevents or retards aging.
Tricetyltriparanol does not actually prevent the body from forming cholesterol, but instead destroys cholesterol in the body. As such, it must be taken daily – and not at all by pregnantt women, who need a certain amount of cholesterol.
The Okie ‘Cities in Flight’ use it as part of an their immortality drug suite.
