GEROPROTECT® Autophagy Renew
Live your longest, healthiest life with GEROPROTECT® Autophagy Renew, a novel formula that encourages autophagy, the natural process for recycling cellular debris that can get in the way of healthy cell function.
Gluten free | Non-GMO
As we age, our bodies get less adept at autophagy, the process for recycling debris in our cells that get in the way of normal function. Give that cellular recycling process a helping hand—so you can live your longest, healthiest life. GEROPROTECT® Autophagy Renew contains a plant flavonoid, luteolin, and an alkaloid from pepper called piperlongumine, which support your body’s natural clean-up process.
Give your body’s natural cellular recycling process a boost—so you can live your longest, healthiest life.
GEROPROTECT® Autophagy Renew Benefits
- Innovative longevity formula
- Helps your body function optimally, without cellular debris getting in the way
- Promotes healthy AMPK activity
- Encourages cells to recycle waste material
- Helps maintain cellular energy balance
Recycling what’s inside: autophagy explained
We know that recycling is good for the environment. But as it turns out, it’s also good for our cells: autophagy is a natural process by which cells clean up intra-cellular debris and other metabolic waste. Tiny cellular organelles called lysosomes breakdown and repurpose this spent material. So why does cellular autophagy matter? Because it helps our bodies conserve energy and function properly, which is essential to living a long, healthy life.
Without autophagy, the insides of our cells would become cluttered and eventually cease to function. The problem is autophagy naturally decreases over time. But the right nutrients can encourage youthful, healthy autophagy at the cellular level—the hard part is figuring out which nutrients do the best job.
Insilico Artificial Intelligence
GEROPROTECT® Autophagy Renew was created through a partnership with Insilico Medicine, Inc., who used their database of studies on geroprotectors to identify luteolin from Japanese sophora flower for its ability to promote autophagy—effects that are also supported by several pre-clinical studies.
We added piperlongumine (a pepper alkaloid) because of our own extensive scientific review. Together, these nutrients have the potential to encourage healthy cellular autophagy—and with it, longevity.
Luteolin is a flavonoid present in fruits, vegetables and nutritious herbs. We get trace amounts of luteolin in our diets, but not nearly enough to encourage healthy cellular renewal. GEROPROTECT® Autophagy Renew contains 165 mg of luteolin per serving. In pre-clinical studies, luteolin promoted autophagy, leading to a variety of health benefits, particularly in the brain.1
Luteolin supports the cellular pathways that encourage autophagy, such as AMPK signaling.2 Luteolin also promotes the generation of new lysosomes, the “recycling plants” inside your cells that break down waste.2 Plus, luteolin inhibits the processes that discourage autophagy, such as mTOR signaling—a central regulator of cellular metabolism and proliferation.2
Piperlongumine is a biologically active alkaloid found in pepper plants. In pre-clinical studies, piperlongumine was shown to activate autophagy as indicated by increased cellular markers called LC3-autophagosomes, structures involved in initiation of autophagy within a cell.3,4
Piperlongumine activates Beclin-1, a gene that triggers formation of these autophagosome structures.5
Beclin-1 dependent autophagy helps protect delicate mitochondria and helped inhibit inflammation to support cardiovascular health in an animal study.5 Our formula contains 10 mg of piperlongumine.
Take alone or with Senolytic Activator
While cellular housekeeping orchestrated by autophagy is a different process than the ones that govern the removal of senescent cells, they are complementary. Therefore, GEROPROTECT® Autophagy Renew can be taken alone, or in conjunction with our Senolytic Activator formula.
