Health Benefits at a Glance:
Exceeding your daily caloric intake over a longer period of time, won’t only increase your weight, it can also speed up the aging process . Reducing your caloric intake may on the other hand contribute to the slowing down of the natural aging process. Using a specific combination of geroprotector compounds, GEROPROTECT™ Longevity A.I.™ can mimic the same effects that a consistent reduced daily caloric intake provides.
Why it Works:
When you eat more calories than your body needs in a day over a longer period of time, your blood vessel will be filled with triglycerides, glucose, homocysteine, and a host of inflammation promoting chemicals. These compounds can, through various processes, contribute to speeding up the aging process .
Therefore, reducing your caloric intake might slow the aging process. Decades of research have determined that the longevity effects of decreasing caloric consumption by 30 to 40 percent are a broad biological phenomenon that has been observed in different species such as fish, rodents and dogs .
But there is a new product on the market that can mimic the anti-aging effects that reduced caloric intake has on your body. GEROPROTECT™ Longevity A.I.™ can help combatting the aging process by using natural geroprotector compounds that, when combined, can mimic the anti-aging effects that calorie restrictions may have on the body. Thereby GEROPROTECT™ Longevity A.I.™ may contribute to delaying the aging process.
The Science Behind the Product:
Life Extension and the medical technology company Insilico Medicine, Inc. have established a unique partnership to develop the latest product in the GEROPROTECT™ product series: GEROPROTECT™ Longevity A.I.
Insilico Medicine, Inc. used a highly innovative algorithm to create a database of 200+ so-called geroprotectors, which have been shown to prolong life span, by activating certain pathways in the body that can affect the natural aging process.
When looking for plant extracts that mirror the biological effects of a calorie restriction mimetic, Insilico Medicine's computerized algorithm identified gamma linoleic acid (GLA), ginsenoside Rg3 and withaferin A. GLA is an important fatty acid found in evening primrose or borage oil that can help reduce pro-inflammatory factors. Ginsenoside Rg3 is a compound isolated from the traditional adaptogenic herb ginseng which has demonstrated potent free radical scavenging activity. Withaferin A is found in parts of the ashwagandha plant such as the leaves and is suggested in preclinical studies to possess a wide range of beneficial physiological effects.
The combination of these three geroprotectors targets the collective of anti-aging pathways modulated by a calorie restriction mimetic.
