CR Mimetic Longevity Formula mimics the anti-aging effects of calorie restriction and triggers youthful gene expression. This comprehensive formula provides a powerful blend of six phytonutrients, including resveratrol, pterostilbene, quercetin, grape seed polyphenols, black tea extract, and fisetin, a natural fruit antioxidant. All these phytonutrients have been shown to generate many of the same effects in the body as caloric restriction, without significant dietary modification. In particular, they help mimic caloric restriction’s favorable impact on genes that influence the aging process. Get broad-spectrum support for youthful gene expression from scientifically validated phytonutrients in this comprehensive formulation.
Benefits at a Glance
Trigger Youthful Gene Expression
Life Extension® has gone to extraordinary lengths to identify those compounds that simulate calorie restriction’s ability to trigger youthful gene expression— the process by which genes transmit signals that slow certain aspects of aging. In 2003, we introduced standardized extract of resveratrol.
In 2009, we introduced the “other” resveratrol, pterostilbene, a compound whose effects were found to work in synergywith resveratrol to activate your “longevity genes.”
We’ve combined six known calorie restriction mimetics — trans-resveratrol, trans-pterostilbene, quercetin, grape seed polyphenols, black tea extract, and fisetin — in one, high-potency formula.1-9
The Original 5 – Powerful Phytonutrients for Living Longer
Trans-resveratrol is the form of resveratrol used in scientific studies documenting remarkable longevity enhancing effects. You would have to drink many bottles of red wine to obtain a fraction of the trans-resveratrol (250 mg) found in CR Mimetic Longevity Formula.
Trans-pterostilbene directly activates genes “downstream” from the sites of resveratrol’s action, providing a powerful complementary stimulus to resveratrol’s ability to induce youthful gene expression. You would have to eat 135 cups of blueberries to obtain the amount of trans-pterostilbene that is contained in CR Mimetic Longevity Formula.
Quercetin inhibits the actions of enzymes in the liver from rapidly breaking down resveratrol in the bloodstream, thus enabling resveratrol to remain active longer in the body.
Grape seed extract provides proanthocyanidins that have multiple health benefits and work together with resveratrol to trigger favorable gene expression changes. Theaflavins from black tea inhibit the pro-inflammatory transcription factor NF-kB10,11 and stimulate the longevity factor Forkhead box 1 (FOXO1) in invertebrate and mammalian cells.12 You would have to drink 12 six-ounce cups of black tea each day to obtain the amount of theaflavins contained in CR Mimetic Longevity Formula.
The Sixth CR Mimetic Discovered – Fisetin!
This innovative formulation features the little-known flavonoid fisetin (which is most abundantly found in strawberries). It is the sixth compound shown to simulate a youthful gene expression pattern similar to calorie restriction13 without significant dietary modification.
Fisetin may also enhance the effects of resveratrol.14 Researchers have uncovered compelling evidence of fisetin’s ability to stabilize resveratrol by shielding it from metabolic breakdown14… thus extending its effects.
Fisetin has been shown to have the power to “switch on” powerful cell-signaling molecules that support youthful gene expression, DNA protection, and healthy cellular function.15 Fisetin also supports aging neurons in the presence of oxidative stress.15-17
And each serving of CR Mimetic Longevity Formula contains fisetin in an amount equivalent to 2 cups of strawberries, helping to further emulate calorie restriction’s favorable influence on your longevity genes.
Get the Longevity Benefits of Calorie Restriction without Restricting Calories
This unique formula provides cutting-edge broad-spectrum support for youthful gene expression from scientifically validated phytonutrients. Just two capsules a day of CR Mimetic Longevity Formula mimics the aging benefits of calorie restriction by triggering youthful gene expression — without restricting calories!
