Aging is not for the faint of heart. We all want to grow old gracefully and feel healthy for as long as possible. With this ideal in mind, Mountain Peak Nutritionals (MPN) created Longevity™ formula – a vital component for a healthy life-prolonging regimen. Longevity™ formula brings together the top five clinically recognized anti-aging raw materials into a single capsule. Coenzyme Q-10, acetyl-L-carnitine (with Biotin), resveratrol, alpha-lipoic acid, and serrapeptase are combined at high therapeutic levels.
There are two forms of CoQ10, ubiquinone and ubiquinol; ubiquinone is easily converted to ubiquinol. The impression that ubiquinol, being in an oil soluble base, is more bioavailable for patients with an absorption issue (1 in 10,000) must also be balanced with the fact that ubiquinol needs sufficient dietary fats for optimal absorption. Ubiquinone is water soluble, easily converted to ubiquinol and readily absorbed.
MPN uses natural CoQ10 (ubiquinone) manufactured at Kwoya Laboratories in Japan, one of the top three manufacturers of CoQ10 in the world. This natural CoQ10 is produced by microbial (yeast or bacteria) fermentation, resulting in the production of the desirable trans isomer, the form identical in structure made by the human body. This allows for optimal bioactivity. There is no residual yeast or bacteria in the final raw material.
Serrapeptase digests non-living tissue, blood clots, cysts, arterial plaque and inflammation in all forms. It i
s important to keep inflammation under tight control since it appears to play a major role in the development of far too many chronic degenerative diseases. We have included 30 mg of serrapeptase, as it has been clinically shown to be not only an incredible anti-inflammatory, but also highly beneficial in reducing arthritis pain (both osteo and rheumatoid), improves circulation, protects against stroke, and removes arterial plaque.
The buzzword in any life-prolonging regimen is Resveratrol. Preliminary clinical studies show Resveratrol possesses anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer, anti-diabetic, antioxidant and antimutagenic activity. At MPN, we elected to use 200 mg of the stronger, naturally created raw material standardized to contain 50% trans-resveratrol.
