For Thousands of years,people have searched for anti-aging formulas. Now, modern science has finally made progress in understanding that aging is a regulated process, and that the process can be slowed down or reversed by changing the expression of key genes dealing with DNA repair, cellular repair and metabolic pathways.1,2,3,4,5 For example, favorable gene expression allow the naked mole rat to live 25 years or longer6, whereas similar sized mice and rats rarely live 5 years. Some types of turtles do not turn off the favorable gene repair processes for hundreds of years. The difference in lifespan between these species and shorter lived species is due to the function of these key genes. These genes exist in all animal species, and if those same genes can be stimulated back into action, the health span and lifespan of the animal dramatically increases. Amazingly, science has now developed three proven methods to increase the expression of these beneficial genes for increased lifespan and heath span: 1) Genetic Engineering, 2) Restriction of Calories and 3) Nutritional supplements that mimic the gene response of calorie restriction. These strategies have increased lifespan in laboratory animals by up to 40%. Each strategy works by changing the way DNA expresses proteins on a cellular level. In practice, Genetic Engineering and Calorie Restriction may not be viable options for most people. Breakthroughs in Calorie Restriction Mimics are extremely promising for widespread use.
benaGene is a revolutionary product that has been proven to increase the lifespan and health span of all laboratory animals tested by 20 to 40% over the control groups by increasing the expression of the beneficial genes. It does this by mimicking the same cellular conditions as calorie restricted animals--except that the animals do not have to eat less. The lifespan expansion ability of benaGene has not been proven in humans, and it will be a long time before there is sufficient data on this. In the mean time, short lived animal species including worms, flys and mice are cross-specie indicators providing proof of the effect of this compound. The product is now offered as a nutritional supplement for humans.
In addition to life extension, benaGene has other beneficial health effects. In human clinical trials, the ingredients in benaGene caused an average decrease in fasting blood sugar (glucose) by 25% in Type I and Type II diabetics. No negative side effects were reported in the clinical study. Less glucose leads to improved glucose tolerance and control, reduction in Advanced Glycation End-products (AGEs) and weight reduction for overweight subjects and weight gain for under weight subjects.
benaGene is made up of metabolites that are already present in every cell of the human body. These metabolites, part of the Citric Acid Cycle, are directly involved in mitochondrial energy production. The components of benaGene are found in excess in fresh oranges and apples. This has perhaps led to the saying, "an apple a day...."
