ReLifeCure® - The Anti-Aging Program
What is a cell?
A cell is the smallest viable unit of an organism. Each cell has its own metabolism, can reproduce, and is excitable, sometimes even mobile. The cell is surrounded by a cell membrane (in the case of bacteria, also by a cell wall), which separates it from the external environment while still allowing for exchange of substances. The interior of the cell consists of cytoplasm and various organelles suspended within it. The cell nucleus, in the form of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA), contains the genetic information for the components of each cell (except for archaea, bacteria, and blue-green algae, which lack a cell nucleus, with DNA localized in the cytoplasm). Similar cells can group together to form tissues and organs, often associated with a division of labor.
During our youth, various mechanisms and substances like amino acids, immunoglobulins, vitamins, minerals, trace elements, and proteins protect us from oxidative stress, glycation, DNA damage, and other reactions that can harm tissues and organs.
The problem arises when, as we age, the proper supply of nutrients to our body decreases, making us vulnerable to cognitive decline, reduced mobility, impaired metabolic control, declining cardiovascular performance, and increased susceptibility to cancer.
Amino acids, vitamins, minerals, trace elements, and proteins are found throughout the body, especially in areas with high energy demands, such as the heart and muscles. Their function is to protect these vital areas from the metabolic demands of energy production and management.
In our youth, our bodies have enough reserves to handle energy-intensive processes. However, as part of the aging process, these reserves diminish over time. This is because, with age, our body becomes less efficient in converting and storing the necessary raw materials. For individuals with conditions like diabetes and metabolic syndrome, which lead to an accelerated aging process, carnosine production decreases, and its destruction increases.
Research has shown that a deficiency in carnosine, essential amino acids, and certain types of proteins is partially responsible for visible aging and functional loss in various areas of the body.
- Carnosine is a dipeptide compound found in various tissues of the body, especially in muscle tissue and the brain. It is believed to have antioxidant effects and may help reduce oxidative stress associated with the aging process. Some studies have shown that carnosine has the ability to slow down cell aging and reverse various age-related changes.
- Essential amino acids are amino acids that the body cannot produce on its own and must be obtained through the diet. They play a crucial role in protein synthesis and various metabolic processes in the body. A deficiency in essential amino acids can impair protein synthesis and have a negative impact on the body, including the aging process.
- Certain types of proteins, particularly collagen, are also closely linked to the aging process. Collagen is a major component of the extracellular matrix, providing structure and strength in tissues such as the skin, bones, and cartilage. Over time, the production of collagen in the body decreases, leading to visible signs of aging such as wrinkles, sagging skin, and joint issues.
- ReLifeCure® is a natural anti-aging product that combats age-related processes such as oxidation, glycation, protein cross-linking, mitochondrial dysfunction, telomere shortening, and transition metal accumulation.
- ReLifeCure® helps slow down the aging process of cells, restores youthful metabolism in blood and tissues, protects against neurodegenerative diseases and strokes, improves exercise performance and comfort, improves diabetes and its complications, and protects heart muscles and blood vessels from atherosclerosis.
RELIFECURE® PROTECTS AGAINST CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE
The multi-targeted effects of ReLifeCure® are most equally in the heart and blood vessels. It has been shown to reduce mortality from stroke and to mitigate the harmful effects of stroke on the brain itself. Studies in experimental animals show that ReLifeCure®, given before or after an induced stroke, protects brain cells from the so-called ischemia-reperfusion injury that occurs.
ReLifeCure® also protects the heart muscle from ischemia (inadequate blood flow), which can ultimately lead to a heart attack. This protection is derived from its antioxidant action, combined with its ability to trap oxidation-inhibiting transition metals, its acid buffering capacity, and its influence on inflammatory cell activity. The action of ReLifeCure® on blood vessels may even prevent circulatory problems from occurring in the first place. ReLifeCure® protects arterial endothelial cells from oxidation and glycation, both of which are early events in the development of atherosclerosis. Excessive muscle tone in the arteries increases blood pressure and reduces blood flow to heart muscles and brain cells; ReLifeCure® reduces vascular tone by several mechanisms. It modulates calcium ion signaling in the smooth muscle cells that control vascular tone and increases the production of beneficial endothelial nitric oxide synthetase.
Not surprisingly, it should be noted that ReLifeCure® also improves cardiac muscle contractility, as it exhibits a variety of beneficial effects. This is in part because it can regulate calcium flow and because of its antioxidant, acid buffering and anti-glycation activities. As a result, it produces a multi-faceted effect that increases the contractility of the heart muscle.
RELIFECURE® PROTECTS BRAIN CELLS, PRESERVES COGNITION
So far, pharmacological treatment has only shown minimal effectiveness in slowing down the progression of cognitive decline. The numerous therapeutic approaches make ReLifeCure® exceptionally promising for all these conditions.
Alzheimer's disease is a neurodegenerative disorder that is highly distressing and most commonly occurring. Researchers have found that individuals with Alzheimer's have significantly lower levels of certain amino acids in the brain and cerebrospinal fluid compared to other people in similar age groups. It is still unclear whether this deficiency of certain amino acids is the cause or a consequence of Alzheimer's. However, existing studies clearly demonstrate that supplementing the missing amino acids has preventive effects and can prevent the progression of the disease in affected patients.
Alzheimer's disease is caused by a combination of various factors, all related to the deficiency of certain amino acids and their impact on brain function. Recently, Alan R. Hipkiss from Queen Mary's School of Medicine and Dentistry in London summarized the relationship between Alzheimer's and a decline in amino acid levels in the body. Hipkiss has been able to show that the brain regions affected first by Alzheimer's disease typically have the highest concentrations of amino acids. This suggests that these brain areas become more susceptible to harmful effects of Alzheimer's as they age. Furthermore, he found that the abnormal protein amyloid-beta, exclusively found in the brains of Alzheimer's patients, is typically loaded with zinc ions. The amino acid carnosine is capable of binding and removing zinc, implying once again that a declining level of amino acids in brain tissue may lead to the accumulation of toxic substances there.
Mitochondrial dysfunction refers to disturbances or abnormalities in the function of mitochondria, the so-called "powerhouses" of cells. Mitochondria are organelles within cells responsible for energy production in the form of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). They play a crucial role in various cellular processes, including metabolism, cell growth and division, and regulation of cell death (apoptosis). Mitochondrial dysfunction can have various causes, including genetic mutations (inherited diseases), environmental factors, cellular aging, and diseases. It leads to impaired energy production, affecting various tissues and organs in the body, especially tissues with high energy demands like the brain, muscles, and heart. Symptoms of mitochondrial dysfunction can be diverse and vary depending on the affected tissue and the severity of the disorder. Common symptoms include fatigue, muscle weakness, coordination problems, neurological disorders, metabolic disturbances, and increased susceptibility to infections.
Mitochondrial dysfunction also plays a role in the development of Alzheimer's disease. Due to the oxidative stress it causes, it is involved in the formation of the Alzheimer's protein amyloid-beta. Studies have shown that in Alzheimer's mice supplemented with the missing amino acids, the accumulation of amyloid-beta was significantly reduced, and their brains were completely relieved from the oxidative stress of mitochondrial dysfunction.
Strokes: Recent studies have shown that the missing amino acids possess antioxidative effects and offer some protection against ischemic strokes (inadequate blood supply to brain tissue) as well as hemorrhagic strokes (bleeding in brain tissue). Further studies on ischemic strokes have demonstrated that supplementation with the missing amino acids leads to a significant reduction in oxidative stress and cell death through apoptosis of brain cells. Of particular importance is that these missing amino acids also offer protection against the so-called glutamate excitotoxicity, which is a state of excessive neural activity. In experimental models of hemorrhagic strokes, treatment with these amino acids has been shown to restore the normal function of neurotransmitter receptors damaged by the presence of blood in brain tissue. Additionally, some of the dangerous swellings that often occur after a hemorrhagic stroke could also be prevented.
RELIFECURE® AND ITS EFFECTS
Initially, our research department considered ReLifeCure® primarily as an antioxidant product. While it does exhibit good antioxidant effects, the composition of ReLifeCure® is by no means the strongest antioxidant.
By chance, our research department's attention was redirected in another direction. The team observed that ReLifeCure® caused a dramatic increase in the longevity of test cells. What the laboratory discovered took everyone by surprise. The composition of ReLifeCure® is actually involved in six main processes responsible for the aging process.
These six main processes are:
- Oxidation at the cellular and tissue level is one of the main factors contributing to organ aging. ReLifeCure® binds oxygen-containing and nitrogen-free radicals, reducing their destructive effects on fat and DNA molecules. (These effects are an effective means to stop atherosclerosis or cancer formation.)
- Glycation refers to a biochemical process in which sugar molecules (especially glucose) react with proteins or lipids, forming chemical compounds known as "advanced glycation end products" (AGEs). AGEs can accumulate in various tissues of the body and have a range of harmful effects. They can lead to inflammation, oxidative stress, and impairment of normal cellular functions. Glycation is associated with various diseases and aging processes, including cardiovascular diseases, kidney diseases, Alzheimer's disease, and eye diseases.
- Accumulation of excess metals refers to the buildup of metals in the body beyond normal physiological levels. This can happen due to environmental exposure, genetic predisposition, or metabolic disorders. Metal accumulations can occur in various tissues and organs, including the brain, liver, kidneys, and other vital organs. Excess metal accumulation leads to oxidative stress, with metals being involved in the formation of reactive oxygen species that cause cell damage and inflammation. ReLifeCure® can bind and remove excess metals, thus avoiding their harmful effects on the body.
- Cross-linked proteins refer to a specific type of chemical bonding between proteins, where they become linked together. This cross-linking can occur through various mechanisms, including covalent bonds or non-covalent interactions. Cross-linking of proteins plays an important role in various biological processes. It can affect the stability and functionality of protein structures, enable the formation of protein complexes, regulate cellular signaling pathways, and provide structural support for tissues. Abnormal protein cross-linking is also associated with certain diseases. For example, clumped proteins in neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) are associated with abnormal cross-linking, leading to changes in protein structure and impairment of normal cellular functions. With age, the efficiency of proteasomal degradation decreases, resulting in the accumulation of dysfunctional proteins that can disrupt normal cell function. This process is linked to various age-related diseases and the general aging process. Thanks to the composition of ReLifeCure®, accelerated breakdown of abnormal proteins can potentially help reduce cellular burden and restore normal cell function, positively impacting cell health, aging, and partly existing age-related diseases.
- Telomeres are DNA sequences located at the ends of chromosomes. They play a crucial role in cell division. With each cell replication, a small portion of the telomere region is shortened. The average replication of a cell is around 50 divisions, after which the telomeres become too short to adequately protect the chromosomes. As a result, a state known as "cellular senescence" occurs, where cells lose their normal function or die. ReLifeCure® has been found to have potentially protective effects on telomeres. In experimental systems, it has been shown that ReLifeCure® can provide the required energies needed for cell life and can slow down the rate of telomere shortening.
- Mitochondrial dysfunction plays a role in accelerating aging as it deprives cells of the energy they require and simultaneously increases oxidative stress. Mitochondria are the powerhouses of cells and produce the majority of cellular energy in the form of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). When mitochondria lose their efficiency, energy production is impaired, leading to energy deficiency in cells. Additionally, mitochondrial dysfunction leads to increased production of reactive oxygen species, also known as oxidative stress. These compounds can damage cells and contribute to the accumulation of damage in their genetic material and other vital components. ReLifeCure® counteracts these changes, particularly in vulnerable brain cells, where mitochondrial dysfunction can lead to neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's. Furthermore, ReLifeCure® can improve mitochondrial function, boost energy production, and reduce oxidative stress.
ReLifeCure® How to use
ReLifeCure® consists of two product groups: "Cell Rejuvenation" and "Cellular Anti-Aging."
ReLifeCure® Cell Rejuvenation is designed for customers who have done little for their body and well-being in the past. It contains a balanced blend of trace elements, vitamins, antioxidants, and amino acids that the body and immune system urgently need.
In its application, three groups of people are distinguished:
- 1. Customers already using ReLifeCure® should undergo a Cell Rejuvenation course every 6 months.
- 2. Customers using ReLifeCure® for the first time should start with Cell Rejuvenation and continue with Cellular Anti-Aging in the second month.
- 3. Customers with highly stressed bodies, a high level of stress, or age-related physical ailments should start with a two-month Cell Rejuvenation course and continue with Cellular Anti-Aging from the third month onwards.
ReLifeCure® Cellular Anti-Aging is a highly concentrated blend of antioxidants, amino acids, and proteins and serves as the main anti-aging course. It can also be used as a standalone product, but the positive effects may take longer to manifest as the body needs time to provide the necessary resources.
In its application, two groups of people are distinguished:
- 1. Customers with a very balanced diet and no exposure to stress-related burdens from their environment can start directly with Cellular Anti-Aging. However, they should undergo a Cell Rejuvenation course at least every 6 months to potentially replenish depleted body reserves, unless they are already taking other high-quality vitamins and trace elements.
- 2. Customers who already consume high-quality vitamins and trace elements and aim for comprehensive protection for their body can use Cellular Anti-Aging without any further steps.
ReLifeCure® Cell Rejuvenation can be used as a long-term supply of amino acids, immunoglobulins, vitamins, minerals, trace elements, and proteins.
ReLifeCure® Cellular Anti-Aging is a pure anti-aging product and is meant to complement a balanced diet.
SIDE EFFECTS: CAUTION!
ReLifeCure® Cellular Anti-Aging is not suitable for individuals who engage in extreme sports, are exposed to an increased risk of injury in their profession or leisure activities, or have an unhealthy lifestyle.
Cellular Anti-Aging essentially slows down cell division, resulting in wound healing from injuries taking about three times longer than usual. For example, the body may close a wound as usual, but the final healing of the scar takes approximately three times longer, making the reopening of the scar a recurring risk.
If a surgery is scheduled, the last intake of Cellular Anti-Aging should ideally be at least one month before the procedure.
