Juvenon Inc.

Brief Description

Juvenon offers a roadmap to youthful aging with an easily understood punch list for longevity, which includes not only supplements, but also the latest scientific research, expert findings and lifestyle choices that make a real difference in the way people feel and live. Ultimately Juvenon seeks to add 5 quality years to each customer's lifespan. The company has proprietary technology, originally developed at the University of California, Berkeley, and a team of world-class scientists, led by Dr. Bruce Ames, Ph.D., winner of the U.S. National Science Prize and other international honors.

Improving with Age

The desire to stave off the aging process and maintain vigor and functionality as we get older is at or near the top of all of our wish lists. But many scientists are doing more than just wishing - they're learning about the cellular processes underlying aging and, in doing so, identifying strategies for extending the length of time that we feel healthy. At U.C. Berkeley, Bruce Ames has been a leader in the field of mutagenesis and genetic toxicology. The professor of biochemistry and molecular biology has recently focused on the oxidative damage to DNA and its relationship to the degenerative diseases of aging.

Ames' formula for promoting a healthier, more energetic body, which he first tested at UC Berkeley, showed dramatic results elderly laboratory animals that were given a certain combination of natural micronutrients were able to function at levels characteristic of much younger animals. The formula was patented and licensed to Orinda, Calif.-based Juvenon in order to commercialize Ames' energy formula for human consumption. Juvenon developed and tested the formula's safety and efficacy and, after achieving positive results, the product was launched in 2002.

Juvenon Energy Formula is designed to promote energy and cellular health by supplementing the body with important natural substances that begin to be produced in insufficient quantities as we age. The mitochondria is considered the powerhouse of the cell converting amino acids, fatty acids and sugars into energy. The Juvenon Energy Formula includes mitochondrial metabolites that have been shown in laboratory experiments to help maintain mitochondrial function as cells age. The company notes that the product is particularly effective in protecting tissue from toxic oxidants, which increase with normal daily stress-producing activities and exercise, and with the natural aging process.
