Live, FAST and Don’t Die Young! www.prolon.co.uk
What if you could trick your body into thinking it was fasting, receive the health benefits associated with calorie-restriction, but never actually stop eating?
ProLon®, is a groundbreaking five days per month only natural, gluten free, plant based meal program that nourishes the body while convincing it that it is fully fasting. This is the first time in history that ‘Fasting with Food’ is possible and is therefore called the Fasting Mimicking Diet (FMD).
Developed at the Longevity Institute of the University of Southern California (USC) and under the sponsorship of the National Institute for Aging and the National Institute of Health, ProLon® induces the body to protect itself and rejuvenate in response to 5 consecutive days of fasting.
Water only fasting can be risky and challenging. The Fasting Mimicking Diet (FMD) is a new category in nutrition that is scientifically proven and clinically tested to mimic fasting and its benefits including cell regeneration, healthy aging, and fat driven weight loss.
“ProLon® is the first impactful yet practical and natural intervention that enhances the healthy part of our life by optimizing the way we age,” says Dr. Valter Longo, chairman and founder of L-Nutra and the director of the Longevity Institute. “Fasting done periodically is a very powerful and natural way to help the body first recover from the incremental damages inflicted by unhealthy lifestyle and then to rejuvenate its cells and systems. Based on over a decade of research and development, ProLon® is scientifically proven to enable people to live longer, healthier lives.”
According to a clinical trial published in Science Translational Medicine, researchers tested the effects of three ProLon cycles (five days per month) on stimulating the body’s own stem cells, on metabolic markers and on risk factors associated with aging and age‐related diseases. Findings in humans confirmed mice studies showing a spike in circulating Stem Cells and leading to delayed aging by promoting regeneration in multiple systems. Body weight, BMI, total body fat, trunk fat, waist circumference, systolic and diastolic blood pressure, cholesterol, and insulin‐like growth factor 1 (IGF‐1), C-Reactive Protein (a marker of inflammation) were significantly reduced, particularly in participants at risk for diseases, while relative lean body mass (muscle and bone mass) was increased. Low levels of IGF-1 are associated with a lower risk of cancer and diabetes. No serious adverse effects were reported.
This 100 participant landmark clinical study stems from over two decades of molecular, animal, and clinical testing at USC’s Valter Longo laboratory under the sponsorship of the National Institute of Aging and the National Cancer Institute of the NIH.
ProLon is comprised of low-protein, low-carbohydrate, and high good fat ingredients to help the body protect and repair itself naturally, bringing long-term health benefits. This ‘fasting with food’ program features meals ranging from 770 to 1,100 calories per day, packaged in convenient grab-and-go boxes that include energy bars, soups, a variety of snacks, drinks, and supplements. ProLon’s plant-based ingredients consist of fresh olives, vegetables, nuts, seeds, dark chocolate, and herbal teas.
“ProLon® represents a major innovation in nutritechnology,” says Joseph Antoun, CEO of L-Nutra. “This is the first time in history that we have a food that someone consumes for 5 days while the body does not recognize it is eating and therefore enters into a protective and regenerative mode to improve overall health, aging and wellbeing.” Dr. Antoun reported that “many consumers like the fact that ProLon® is to be consumed over 5 days only and is not every day’s diet that imposes change to their lifestyle. Consumers reported as well higher energy levels, healthier skin, improved control of food consumption. For these reasons, overall consumer satisfaction from all across the nation is at 90% rate.”
