Prolon product information

What Is ProLon®?

ProLon® is a 5-day dietary program that nourishes your body while promoting regenerative and rejuvenating changes, including effects on a wide range of markers that contribute to aging, such as cholesterol, inflammation, and fasting glucose.

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.

ABC Catalyst: Live Long, Die Young

Meals

ProLon® meals come in 5 small boxes (one for each day) that include plant-based energy bars, soups, a variety of snacks, drinks, and supplements, all studied and carefully designed to nourish your body and promote positive changes in metabolic markers, cellular rejuvenation, reduced inflammation, and healthy ageing.

Mechanism of action

ProLon® provides the body with healthy, plant-based ingredients that have been scientifically demonstrated to provide the body with optimal nourishment while not activating the key pro-aging pathways including the growth hormone and insulin and Insulin-like Growth Factor 1 (IGF-1) pathways activated by normal diets. These hormones signal to the body that it has consumed significant levels of carbohydrates and proteins and can activate genes that accelerate the growth pathways, which also speed aging and block regeneration/rejuvenation.

ProLon® is the first Fasting Mimicking and Enhancing™ Diet that provides you with a combination of foods and ingredients able to reprogram the body into a regenerating and rejuvenating mode, resulting in long-term reduction of IGF-1, glucose and markers of inflammation and aging, but only in subjects with high levels of these markers.

Scientific Studies

15 years of extensive preclinical and clinical studies sponsored by the National Institute of Health (NIH) and conducted at the Longevity Institute and Diabetes and Obesity Research Institute of the University of Southern California (USC) resulted in the development of the first FMED™ (ProLon®) which stimulates:

  • Cellular entry into a high protection and stress resistant mode
  • Removal of damaged cells and tissues
  • Self-repair through cellular regeneration and rejuvenation

Clinical Results

In the latest clinical trial conducted at USC’s Longevity Institute and Diabetes and Obesity Research Institute, 3 cycles of ProLon®, 5 days per month over a 3 month period suggested the following significant effects 005-2 at 1 week after the last cycle.

Subject Results

1. Subjects were randomized to either ProLon® or their normal diet. Subjects consumed ProLon® for five consecutive days every month for three months and returned to normal diet in-between. Control subjects continued their normal diet. Measurements were performed prior to the diet (A), immediately after the first ProLon® cycle and during the recovery period after the 3rd. cycle. (B)

2. MSPC
Percentage of lin-CD184+CD45 mesenchymal stem/progenitor cells (MSPC) in the peripheral blood mono-nucleated cell population (N= 16). N= 19 except where stated differently.

3. CRP
C-reactive protein levels of all subjects (panel A) and subjects in the average or high risk group for heart disease (N= 8;) (panel B).

All data are expressed as the mean ± SEM. Statistical analysis was performed using the Wilcoxon signed-rank test with *p<0.05; **p<0.001; •••p<0.001.

How Often Should Patients Take The 5-Day ProLon® Diet?

Depending on your patient’s body weight, baseline markers and health measurements, and after your evaluation and recommendation:
