It’s rejuvenating to witness another spring and feel the life force and vitality that comes with making it through another winter. Now that all the bushes and trees are in full bloom and the days are indeed getting warmer, we get to celebrate life going on all around us.
Remaining healthy and energetic is a huge part of what we value as health care providers. Clinical nutrition does not offer a fountain of youth, but it does offer some key nutrients clinical studies show will slow down the aging process, keeping us healthy and vital. Longevity formula™ was created to provide the key nutrients for anti-aging. Based on the latest clinical and scientific research, Longevity formula™ features the most clinically accepted raw materials to assist in the body’s aging more gracefully:
**Coenzyme Q-10 levels are highest during the first 20 years of life and decline with aging. 25-30% of CoQ10 is found in the nucleus, 40-50% is found in the mitochondria, 15-20% in the microsomes and 5-10% in the cytosol. Studies have shown CoQ10 prolongs life while a deficiency of CoQ10 appears to be a factor in Parkinson’s disease.
**Alpha-Lipoic acid is a potent antioxidant and can regenerate endogenous antioxidants preventing oxidative damage. Like CoQ10, it is necessary in the production of ATP fueling more energy and greater vitality.
**Resveratrol has certainly gained notoriety over the past few years for its ability to decrease the activity of cytokines, which suggests a mechanism for reducing mortality in cardiovascular diseases and cancer. The anti-inflammatory effects of Resveratrol inhibiting COX-1 and COX-2 suggests effective usefulness in inflammatory diseases like arthritis and related inflammatory disorders.
**Acetyl-L-carnatine, the most important carnitine ester, is converted to L-carnitine in the body and plays a functional role in lipid metabolism and energy production (ATP). Carnitines are essential for normal mitochondrial function. Biotin and acetyl-L-carnitine work together clinically for the nutritional support of biochemical disturbances that can occur in metabolic syndrome, weight issues and Type II diabetes.
Taking into account that many diseases begin as a result of the inflammatory process, we added Serrapeptase, a proteolytic enzyme that has anti-inflammatory, anti-edemic and fibrinolytic effects. Serrapeptase decreases pain by inhibiting the release of bradykinin and other factors from inflamed or damaged tissue.
The raw materials and the amount of milligrams used in our Longevity formula™ reflect its greater effectiveness. Mountain Peak Nutritionals uses the highest quality, most bioavailable and absorbable nutrients. As a physician myself, I realize that we all want the products we purchase to be effective and to result in better patient outcomes. MPN has strived to accomplish this goal since 1996. Thank you for your continued trust and support.
