Fasting Mimicking Technology™
A pool of first in class researchers developed and patented that allow you to get into the state of fasting while eating and nourishing the body. This can give you access to all the benefits of the Nobel-Prized (2016) discovery of autophagy, which leads to cells rejuvenation.
THE STORY OF ‘FASTING MIMICKING TECHNOLOGY’
Dr. Valter Longo, one of the 50 most influential people in Health (Time Magazine), is an Italian-American scientist who, after he watched his beloved grandfather dying as a child, devoted his entire life to research the root-cause of aging and help people live longer and healthier. After decades of research within some of the most advanced universities in the field – e.g. UCLA and USC – his teams discovered a way to slow down the aging process and reduce the onset of pathologies. The results were so promising that the NIH sponsored the research with over 30 million of dollars. The studies continued and resulted what today is known as:
THE ‘FASTING MIMICKING TECHNOLOGY’ (FMT):
A short-term meal program able to trigger a set of regenerative mechanisms (such as Autophagy) in the body that slow down the ageing process and recalibrate metabolism. FMT gained the first-ever patent for ‘anti-aging with food’!
But what’s the secret of the FASTING MIMICKING TECHNOLOGY?
Indeed, the secret rests on the special composition of the FMT meal program! The scientist achieved a special formulation of micro- and macro-nutrients in precise quantities and combinations that nourish you but are NOT recognized as food by the body and, therefore, mimics a fasting state! And that kicks off the CELL-REGENERATION PROCESS!
Some proven results of this regeneration process are:
L-Nutra was founded in 2009 in the US, by Dr. Valter Longo, with the contribution of the University of Southern California. Dr Longo is still today one of the main shareholders of the company and donates all its proceeds to the ‘Valter Longo Foundation’, a non-profit organization which promotes clinical research, public education about longevity nutrition and pursues charitable purposes.
L-Nutra’s objective is to reflect the discoveries and the scientific results in products, that can be available to and enjoyable by everybody. In 2016 L-Nutra launched the first product ‘ProLon® 5-day FMT®’. In 2020 it launched the ‘1-day ProLon Reset Kit’ and the ‘ProLon FastBar’, an easy way to replace a meal and apply Intermittent-Fasting and Time-Restricted-Eating practices.
