How to switch on your youth genes and how the Rejuvenated products can help you to biohack your body into longevity. Our body has developed unique systems that help to protect it In times of stress . These biological pathways hunker down and improve survival and recently scientists have discovered that they hold the key to living longer and staying more youthful. These pathways are sirtuins, mTor and AMPK, read on to discover in simple terms what they are and how our products can help you to easily switch them on.
Sirtuins – the cell control system
Sirtuins are at the forefront of medical research. They are key in the cell control system turning genes on and off when needed, removing and repairing broken parts of the cell. They are in charge of DNA packaging, our health, fitness and our very survival. Sirtuins gravitate towards the telomeres (caps to protect our DNA). All in all they are essential players to switch on your youth genes.
Sirtuins have evolved to require another molecule to carry out its work, nicotinamide mononucleotide or NAD. Unfortunately, levels of NAD decline as we age. Sirtuins prevent cell death and boost mitochondria, the power pack of the cell. In times of adversity sirtuins reduce inflammation and work to protect us against major diseases and the diseases caused by ageing. Several Rejuvenated products contain compounds that science indicates activates sirtuins, these are known as sirtuin activating compounds known or STAC’s.
MTOR the remover of senescent cells
MTor is a protein that responds to signals from nutrients, growth factors and cellular energy. When we consume food, especially protein our body responds by increasing energy production. This allows cells to divide and reproduce faster priming the body for muscle growth and repair. However, it can also lead to several diseases including cancer, obesity and type 2 diabetes.
When the enzyme mTOR is inhibited, it forces cells to switch from dividing and focus their energy on boosting DNA repair, reducing inflammation caused by senescent cells (cells that are no longer healthy) and digesting old proteins.
To prevent mTor being over active limit your intake of dairy and meat and include more plants in your diet.
AMPK the master switch of metabolism
AMPK is another pathway that is found in every cell in our body and is a genetic master switch that controls our metabolism. AMPK plays an important part in the maintenance of brown fat and and beige fat. This fat burns calories more effectively than ordinary fat and may help to control blood sugar and improve insulin levels.
HOW TO ACTIVATE THE 3 LONGEVITY PATHWAYS
There are plenty of stressors that will activate these genetic pathways without damaging the cells:
- A restricted calorie diet
- Eating highly pigmented fruits and vegetables
- Low protein diet
- Cold temperatures
- High intensity exercise – switches all 3 longevity pathways in the right direction.
How Rejuvenated products can help you to switch on your youth genes
These stressors might sound a little extreme, thankfully, there are certain special nutritional molecules that can mimic the exact same effects.
Regenerate is our superstar product formulated to work at cellular level, it contains a host of ingredients designed to stimulate sirtuins and activate NAD.
MNM increases levels of NAD while resveratrol, pterostilbene, fisetin, quercetin promote sirtuin activity and supports healthy ATP levels
H3O Hydration hydrates at cellular level and contains resveratrol to support healthy ATP levels and promote sirtuin activity.
H3O Night Repair
H3O Night Repair contains ionic electrolytes and ingredients to contribute to the repair cells and promote the life of telomeres. Studies show that astragalus has a particular benefit in supporting telomere health.
We’ve created a special longevity collection for you to enjoy and switch on your youth genes.
