SAN DIMAS, Calif., May 19 /PRNewswire/ -- While scientists believe they are on the frontier of discovering technologies that will produce super longevity, the curse of living longer is looking older. Now a new resveratrol-based dietary supplement - Longevinex Advantage(R) - has been designed for adults who want to live longer and look younger.
Hair withers, skin wrinkles, joints creak, the voice becomes raspy. Selling longevity has a downside, the inevitable loss of youthful appearance and function, says Bill Sardi, spokesperson for Longevinex(R).
The lifespan of humans will still be shortened if connective tissue - the extracellular "goo" that occupies space in between cells - is not maintained.
Furthermore, as connective tissue ages, internal organs such as heart and arteries begin to collapse and lose their elasticity, which still means a rather limited lifespan, says Sardi.
Infants and young females (due to estrogen) have abundant levels of hyaluronan and exhibit soft skin, scarless wound healing, thick hair and extra-flexible joints - the visible signs of youthfulness.
A unique source of pure oral hyaluronan is provided which stimulates fibroblast cells in the body to produce more hyaluronan, along with molecules like resveratrol, quercetin, anthocyanins, catechin and ferulic acid (all known as red wine molecules) that inhibit the enzyme that breaks down hyaluronan (hyaluronidase) and helps to maintain hyaluronan once it is produced.
In response to a report in AARP Magazine that an anti-aging pill appears to be on the horizon, most senior Americans responded in an online poll by saying they would not take such a pill because it would increase the quantity of life without maintaining the quality of life. The advent of a dietary supplement like Longevinex Advantage(R) that puts "more life in your years rather than just years in your life" is likely to be more broadly welcomed, says Sardi.
Just look at the number of people who use hair dye, skin creams, wear contact lenses, and elect to undergo plastic surgery, in an effort to retain a youthful appearance. Compare that to the few who practice calorie restriction or take an anti-aging pill to prolong their lifespan, says Sardi.
Twenty-five percent of Americans today will live beyond the age of 92. Many Americans have begun to take resveratrol pills like Longevinex(R) in hopes of extending their lives another 20 to 30 healthy years. Biologists now say the 120-year lifespan may soon become the norm.
Longevinex(R) has also been shown to reduce markers of oxidation and inflammation in a study of endurance athletes. So far, it is the only resveratrol-based supplement to undergo testing.
