“Living Healthy Longer” – Dr Valter Longo– PhD, Director of Institute of Longevity, University of Southern California.

5 Days each month for 3 months to live a longer life!

 

What is ProLon®  FMD?

 ProLon® is the first and only Fasting Mimicking Diet on the market. It is a unique 5-day plant-based meal programme that maintains the body in a state of fasting.

ProLon® is not intended to treat, cure, diagnose, or prevent any diseases.

How does ProLon® work?

Fasting has numerous health benefits because of its ability to reduce oxidative damage and inflammation, optimize energy metabolism and cellular protection, and re-programme stress resistance pathways. It has been identified to stimulate self-renewal of stem cells and neural regeneration, both of which are altered during periods of inflammation and disease.

 

The main researcher behind ProLon® (the only Fasting Mimicking Diet), Professor Valter Longo, wanted to make these results realistically achievable because water-only fasting is quite daunting for the average person and can be dangerous if not done properly. They studied variations on ingredients to determine the exact ingredients that keep your body in the state of fasting and therefore block these nutrient sensing pathways. ProLon® provides the food and nutrients that will allow you to thrive in normal life, but you still get the health benefits of water-only fasting.

 

What are the benefits?

Clinical results from 5 days of the Fasting Mimicking Diet include promoting healthy levels of blood pressure, blood sugar, cholesterol, several markers of inflammation, an average of 5lbs of fat loss (specifically targeting visceral fat) and 1.2 inches off waist circumference. Other subjective improvements include healthy skin, hair and nails, in addition to promoting general lifestyle improvements.

Fasting Mimicking Diets have been shown to:

  • Decrease body weight and body fat
  • Maintain blood glucose at healthy level
  • Maintain CRP at healthy levels (an inflammatory marker)
  • Maintain triglycerides at healthy levels
  • Maintain blood pressure at healthy levels
  • Maintain lean body mass at healthy levels
  • Maintain cholesterol at healthy levels
  • Maintain insulin resistance at healthy levels
  • Impact in IGF-1 (an aging marker)
  • Stem cell regeneration

Based on the identification of the genes and pathways that regulate ageing and cellular protection, ProLon® promotes regenerative and rejuvenative changes, including effects on a wide range of markers that contribute to ageing, such as cholesterol, inflammation, and fasting glucose.

It has been clinically tested and found to promote beneficial effects in a variety of conditions ranging from excess weight to growth factors associated with DNA damage.

ProLon® contains 66 unique ingredients that have been studied for over a decade at USC, under the sponsorship of the NIH, to inactivate nutrient sensing pathways while providing nourishment for the body (macronutrients, micronutrients, minerals and vitamins) as well as mimicking and enhancing a fasting state.

ProLon® is plant-based and comes in a compact box which contains 5 smaller boxes (one for each day). The only limitation from it being suitable for vegetarians is the presence of honey and gelatin.

A typical day box contains a variety of bars, soups, snacks, drinks, and supplements. Day 1 is 1100 calories while each of the other 4 days are around 750 calories. While total calories are one dimension of the product, the most important dimension is the proprietary and patented formulation that mimics and enhances a fasting state. Additionally, ProLon® is Gluten and Dairy Free.

ProLon® mitigates the burden and danger of water-only fasting, while responding to the unmet need of having a readily consumable, proven and safe dietary program that does not require ongoing lifestyle changes, such as long-term dieting.

These nutrient-sensing pathways are pro-growth and pro-ageing, and lead to many common health problems including heart disease and cancer.

 

The ProLon journey

Day 1 – Fasting state – ProLon is designed to prime your body into a fasting state so it can begin cellular recycling.

Day 2 – Fat burning – autophagy begins (clearing up ageing and damaged cells).

Day 3 – Cellular recycling – fat burning and ketosis.

Day 4 – Cell regeneration – autophagy continues and stem-cell regenerations is increasing

Day 5 – Regeneration continues. The benefits after the 5-day FMD – stem cell-based rejuvenation continues for up to 5 days upon completion of ProLon mimicking diet and your return to healthy meal plan

Transition Diet – time to listen to your body and eat foods that are well tolerated; taking it slowly and steadily introducing foods back into your diet to ease you out of fasting

You should start with liquid foods, such as soups and fruit juices, followed by light meals including rice, pasta and small portions of fish, meat, and/or legumes. A normal diet can be resumed on day 7.

What are the benefits of the Fasting Mimicking Diet®?

The FMD gives you all the benefits of a 5-day fast whilst enjoying food.

You will experience the following benefits:

  • Experience greater focus, clarity and energy
  • Fat focused weight loss (the fastest way to lose belly fat without losing muscle mass)
  • Enhances cellular renewal by triggering stem-cell based regeneration and autophagy (the cleaning up of aging and damaged cells) and promotes cell-based renewal
  • Metabolic health maintains healthy blood sugar levels, cholesterol and blood pressure as well as improving markers for inflammation.

What To Do Next?

Step 1 – make an appointment to book your initial health and nutritional assessment. Not everyone can doProLon® FMD so this part is essential.

Step 2 – Keep a food and symptoms diary to discuss with your Nutritional Therapist

Step 3 – Pay your deposit payment to secure your programme

Step 4 – Set yourself a start date that works for you (away from holidays, social engagements, etc). Your fasting days may need you to take it easier than normal so check your workload isn’t too demanding.
