Aging is an inevitable process that happens to everyone. As you age, you may experience health problems and be unable to do things you could when you were younger. But thanks to recent scientific innovations, we can slow down or reverse the internal physiological processes responsible for aging.
Conquer the Aging Process
Most people think of aging as an inevitable, unstoppable process. But we understand that most signs of aging can be attributed to the formation of senescent cells. As we age, our cells gradually lose the ability to divide and reproduce. When this happens, they become senescent cells. Since these cells can no longer divide or reproduce, they secrete pro-inflammatory cytokines, chemokines, and extracellular matrix-degrading enzymes that cause inflammation and damage nearby healthy cells.
The formation of senescent cells has been linked to numerous age-related diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, and type II diabetes. In fact, senescent cells have even earned the nickname “zombie cells” because they’re no longer alive but not quite dead, either. Over time, the number of senescent cells in our bodies increases. We offer medications to kill senescent cells and slow down the formation of new ones, thus helping you extend your youth.
Metformin is a medication typically used to treat type 2 diabetes. However, recent studies have shown that Metformin has incredible anti-aging properties. Over 60 years of research have demonstrated that Metformin can optimize metabolism, lower mortality rates, and increase longevity. Metformin primarily works by slowing down the accumulation of the senescent cells linked to the aging process, thus slowing down the aging process.
Autophagy is a process that helps to clean out unwanted or damaged cells to keep our bodies functioning properly. But as we grow older, the autophagy process slows down, leading to the accumulation of old, damaged, and senescent cells. Metformin is a powerful autophagy-inducing molecule that catalyzes your body’s ability to expel old and damaged cells and turn damaged proteins and organelles into amino acids that can be reused by cells.
Reducing Insulin Resistance
Insulin resistance is a major factor in developing many age-related chronic diseases, including heart disease, stroke, and Alzheimer’s disease. Metformin can lower blood sugar levels, make your cells more responsive to insulin, and reduce insulin resistance, which can slow down or prevent chronic diseases. Studies have shown that Metformin can reduce insulin resistance by an average of 31% — that’s why Metformin has been used as a treatment for type 2 diabetes for over 50 years.
