Longevity Mix was developed by renowned molecular biologist Professor Bruce Ames at the University of California. It resulted from his discoveries into the unique and powerful anti-ageing effects of the Acetyl-L-Carnitine and Alpha Lipoic Acid formula.
His findings showed this combination boosted the metabolism, dramatically raising energy levels and mental function.
He fed this combination to ageing rats (equal to a human age of 70) with amazing results. It was like returning a 75 year old person to middle-age.
Acetyl-L-Carnitine is the only amino acid able to transport fatty-acids to your cell mitochondria, where most age-related damage occurs.
Alpha lipoic acid, has a unique ability to protect the inside and outside of your cells by eating free radicals; causing their levels to drop in your body, with amazing anti-ageing results.
Professor Ames’s original formulation has now been improved by adding the cell energizer Co Q10 and Bioperine.
Alpha Lipoic Acid
We can get Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) from food. However, research shows taking an ALA supplement gives major health benefits.
ALA is a powerful anti-oxidant and is present in every cell of your body. A lack of ALA can lead to free radical damage to cells. This can cause premature ageing or worsen the effects of ageing.
ALA is also great for keeping good vision and for general eye health.
It is an important “brain food”, as it easily crosses the blood-brain cell barrier so protecting nerve cells and neurons. Research shows taking ALA rich supplements significantly helps reduce or prevent memory loss and maintains good mental functioning.
Recent research has shown ALA can reverse and prevent skin damage, especially in older people, caused by daily living.
L-carnitine is the most vital amino acid for maintaining good health. We cannot get enough from foods, but taking L-Carnitine rich supplements readily restores your reserves.
A major role of L-Carnitine is to turn fat into energy for our bodies. This reduces excess fat on the body, while increasing your energy levels. It also provides every cell, tissue and organ in our body the fuel they need to repair themselves. Taking L-Carnitine also prevents muscle damage and wastage – common amongst older people.
Most importantly, L-Carnitine can have a big impact on your mental and brain functioning. Besides general mental functioning, it seems L-Carnitine has a major effect in raising short and long term memory.
