La scoperta nutrizionale del secolo
The discovery of Fasting Mimicking Technology was a breakthrough in the Food as Medicine Movement.
Discovered and developed at the Longevity Institute of the University of Southern California, our technology is plant-based nutrition that allows the body to enter into a beneficial fasting state without triggering the cells’ nutrient sensors. As the name suggests, it actually mimics fasting…while still allowing you to eat food. This nourished fasting fine-tunes cells, supports healthy aging, and eliminates the need to do a water-only starvation fast, which can have negative side effects.
The power of cellular rejuvenation
At inception, Fasting Mimicking Technology development was focused on supporting a five day fast followed by a return to a normal diet. It’s a fasting approach called periodic fasting. The results, based on years of research into fasting and this specific approach, are simply astounding. Periodic fasting triggers cellular protection and rejuvenation pathways collectively known as autophagy (autophagy is so important to health and longevity that research in the subject was awarded the 2016 Nobel Prize in Medicine). Simply put, autophagy is your body’s natural, too-often-untapped system for replacing and renewing old, worn out cellular components.
Our remarkable discovery was that our Fasting Mimicking Technology could trigger and sustain autophagy during the fast, while providing essential nutrients. In other words, it activates the body’s powerful cell rejuvenating system to encourage healthy aging and reduces hunger during fasting at the same time
The creator of Fasting Mimicking Technology - Dr. Valter Longo, Ph.D
Il dottor Valter Longo è il direttore del Longevity Institute della University of Southern California. È il nonno della scienza del digiuno ed è stato nominato dal TIME tra le 50 persone più influenti nel campo della salute.
Per la Fasting Mimicking Diet® (FMD), il Prof. Longo ha ottenuto il primo brevetto nella storia dell'Healthspan. Ha scoperto prima come le cellule percepiscono il cibo, poi ha ideato la formulazione che imita il digiuno e infine ha condotto esperimenti sui topi e sull'uomo per testare i benefici per la salute della Fasting Mimicking Diet (FMD).
È grazie a queste scoperte che siamo in grado di offrirvi la linea di prodotti ProLon.
What experts have to say
Dr. William Hsu, M.D
ProLon carries so many weight, metabolic and cellular benefits that not only do I recommend it, but I decided to join the company’s mission full time as Chief Medical OfficerChief Medical Officer, L-Nutra, Former Professor of Medicine, Harvard
Dr. Amy Savagian, MD
I love the science supporting ProLon, and I love that the science has been published in multiple peer reviewed journals. It allows me to suggest ProLon with confidence. I have used fasting and time restricted eating in my practice for years; ProLon augments this and takes it to the next level.Triple Boarded in Internal, Integrative and Obesity Medicine
Dr. Maria Tulpan, M.D
Not only do I recommend ProLon as a frequent nutritional intervention, I’ve done it myself numerous times. I love this product so much, I invested in the company.Endocrinology, Diabetes & Metabolism - L-Nutra Ambassador
