L-Nutra introduces "Fasting With Food," meal program ProLon

FBR Staff Writer Published 23 August 2016

L-Nutra, a nutritechnology company, has released ProLon, a premiere 5-Day Meal Program that nourishes the body while promoting regenerative and rejuvenating changes through scientifically proven, plant-based foods.

Developed at the Longevity Institute of the University of Southern California (USC), in sponsorship with the National Institute for Aging and the National Institute of Health, ProLon is a breakthrough Fasting Mimicking Diet (FMD), that brings back periodic fasting to our current lifestyle.

Fasting for few days in a row is difficult to observe but induces major positive health impacts including body healing and multi-system rejuvenation. ProLon's 5-Day per month Meal Program is the first meal plan that nourishes the body while keeping it in fasting mode. This "fasting with food" technique is scientifically proven and clinically tested to induce all the benefits of fasting including cell regeneration, healthy aging, and fat-driven weight loss.

"ProLon is the first impactful yet practical and natural intervention that enhances the healthy part of our life by optimizing the way we age," says Dr. Valter Longo, chairman and founder of L-Nutra and the director of the Longevity Institute. "Fasting done periodically is a very powerful and natural way to help the body first recover from the incremental damages inflicted by an unhealthy lifestyle and then to rejuvenate its cells and systems. Based on over a decade of research and development, ProLon is scientifically proven to enable people to live longer, healthier lives."

Data show that ProLon's unique blend of ingredients supports the body's ability to optimize metabolic health and aging process.

In the latest clinical trial conducted at USC's Longevity Institute, three cycles of ProLon (five days per month over a three month period) showed statistically significant (p<0.05) improvements on various health metrics – decrease in body fat; decrease in body weight; preservation of lean body mass; preservation of bone density; reduction in fasting glucose and insulin resistance; optimization of Cholesterol and triglyceride levels; decrease in IGF-1 (aging marker); decrease in C-reactive protein; and elevated mesenchymal/progenitor cells (rejuvenation marker).

The diet is comprised of low-protein, low-carbohydrate, and high good fat ingredients to help the body protect and repair itself naturally, bringing long-term health benefits. The "fasting with food" program features meals ranging from 770 to 1,100 calories per day, packaged in convenient grab-and-go boxes that include energy bars, soups, a variety of snacks, drinks, and supplements. ProLon's plant-based ingredients consist of fresh olives, vegetables, nuts, seeds, dark chocolate, and herbal teas.

"ProLon represents a major innovation in nutritechnology," says Joseph Antoun, CEO of L-Nutra. "This is the first time in history that we have food that someone consumes for five days while the body does not recognize it is eating and therefore enters into a protective and regenerative mode to improve overall health, aging, and wellbeing." Dr. Antoun reported that "many consumers like the fact that ProLon is to be consumed over five days only once per one, two, or three months, unlike typical diets which can impose change to their daily lifestyle. ProLon users have reported higher energy levels, healthier skin, and improved control of food consumption. For these reasons, overall satisfaction rate from consumers all across the nation is at 90%."
