The aging process can be a scary time for many patients, as it’s a time they begin to lose the things that made them unique or gave them ability to do activities that they love. Helping your patients stay as healthy as possible is important in helping them live a healthy and fulfilling life as they age. Recommending a supplement such as Protykin® from InterHealth can be a helpful step in keeping your patients aging process slow.
What is Protykin?
A revolutionary supplement, Protykin®, can hone in on a human gene that may be able to slow the aging process. Made of Polygonum Cuspidatum root, Protykin® contains 50% trans-resveratrol. This powerful supplement also contains strong antioxidants to promote a healthy life. Furthermore, all of the ingredients in Protykin® are uniquely sourced to ensure they are of the utmost quality.
How does it work?
Protykin® works two fold. First, this supplement contains trans-resveratrol which has long been known for its longevity benefits. Trans-resveratrol has been linked to stimulating the SIRT1 gene, which may contribute to longevity. Secondly, the supplement acts by imitating caloric restriction in the body. Having a reduced calorie intake has long been connected with an extended lifespan.
The science that Protykin® is based on has been studied non-clinically for nearly 20 years. In the 1990s, Dr. Leonard P. Guarente, a scientist working at M.I.T, began working with yeast cells. He discovered that when the yeast cells were calorically restricted, they tended to live longer. He then began altering the yeast cell’s genes to determine which genes were connected to the yeast’s longevity. He determined that when the SIR2 gene was increased in conjunction with a restricted diet, the yeast cells lived even longer. However, when the SIR2 gene was completely removed, the yeast cells died despite being fed a calorically restrictive diet. Unfortunately, humans do not contain the SIR2 gene. However, the gene SIRT1 is the human equivalent. In these early research studies, the SIRT1 gene has quickly become known as the human anti-aging gene. By having a supplement like Protykin® work in humans triggering the same mechanisms that worked in yeast cells, human’s may have discovered the secret to anti-aging.
How will it benefit your patients?
Having a proven anti-aging supplement added to your patient’s daily regime can be a huge benefit in day to day life. Packed full of antioxidants, Protykin® can improve overall health. Furthermore, it may be able to help slow down several of the more common age-related health issues. It is easy to use too. Taking an 8 mg dose of Protykin® delivers nearly 4 mg of trans-resveratrol. It is easily used with any food or beverage product.
