PROVO, Utah, Dec. 3, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Nu Skin (NYSE: NUS) scientists presented research findings on how mental and physical vitality is improved through nutritional strategies that influence mitochondrial-related genetic expression. Two oral presentations were made at the First World Congress on Targeting Mitochondria: Strategies, Innovation and Clinical Applications in Berlin.
"Through Nu Skin's innovative ageLOC science we have successfully identified groups of genes and multiple genetic pathways that play a role in the complex process of aging," said Joe Chang, Ph.D., Nu Skin chief scientific officer and executive vice president of product development. "Nu Skin's most recent research focuses on improving physical, mental and sexual vitality that declines through the normal aging process. Unlike others who employ single gene approaches, with our research partners we identified multiple genes that affect mitochondrial function and also validate natural ingredients that positively affect the expression of those genes, thereby impacting overall energy and vitality. We believe that research focused on multiple genes shown to affect the normal aging process is the optimal approach to develop effective anti-aging products."
Improved Mental Vitality
At the First World Congress on Targeting Mitochondria, Nu Skin senior scientist Scott Ferguson presented "Targeting Age-Related Gene Expression Improves Mental and Physical Vitality" and highlighted studies with a patent-pending blend of ingredients to improve physical, mental and sexual vitality. This blend was shown to reset mitochondrial-related gene expression to a more youthful state. In a pilot study on mental acuity, the blend significantly improved multiple attributes of cognitive function in men and women aged 28-50 over those taking a placebo.
