RevGenetics announces the update and release of its latest science-based telomere health supplements, Astral Fruit. To understand what and how Astral Fruit works we can look at a recent study entitled: “Proteins induced by telomere dysfunction and DNA damage represent biomarkers of human aging and disease.”
The August 2008 study is helping define what markers determine human biological age over chronological age. In this study, it was found that part of the answer to biological aging is in the end pieces of human chromosomes, called telomeres.
According to the study, telomeres are simply needed to protect the chromosome from coming undone, as well as to maintain the DNA information that cells need every time they divide. When cells divide, these telomeres grow short. When they grow short, they come to a point where they lose their protective function; because of this cells lose the ability to divide and eventually die. The results of the study help provide some of the main markers regarding biological age, and corroborate the hypothesis of DNA damage in human aging.
What Astral Fruit does is activate the enzyme telomerase by using a natural herbal extract. Telomerase is a naturally occurring activity that the immune system normally activates when preparing to combat infection. However, telomerase also repairs cellular damage in the cells’ chromosomes, repairs DNA and helps lengthen telomere areas to maintain them in a healthy state.
“With our updated formulation, we believe this product will help dramatically slow and maybe repair some of the natural telomere shortening that happens as we age, as well as support cardiovascular and chromosome health.** In a year or two we will know if Astral Fruit, along with Micronized Resveratrol, may be considered the DNA fountain of youth,” says Anthony Loera, founder of RevGenetics.
The new Astral Fruit dietary supplements now use a better formulation for absorption, as only about 2.2% of pure Astragaloside IV has been considered in studies, to be absorbed properly. In our new unique formulation, Instead of supplying 33mg like we have previously had done, we now supply 100 mg of natural Astragaloside IV per capsule, along with Chitosan which studies show can increase the absorption of Astragaloside IV across the intestinal cell barrier dramatically.
Astragaloside IV is one of the rarest herbal extracts in the world. “You will not find this extract for sale in 99 percent of dietary supplements on the market,” Loera says. “You can search for it and never find it in your favorite store or in your products of choice. Many Astragalus extracts we have tested contain no more than 0.3 percent of this natural extract, and most Astragalus products simply do not have it. Just check the label in your favorite Astragalus product, and you will not see Astragaloside IV anywhere on it at all.”
Each bottle of RevGenetics’ Astral Fruit contains 30 capsules and costs $49.99.
As one of the best providers of Resveratrol, another science-based supplement, RevGenetics believes that Resveratrol and Astral Fruit work together for your benefit:
Simply works to keep you healthy by working on the power plant in your cells, otherwise known as the mitochondria. We also know from studies that Resveratrol is beneficial to multiple systems to help maintain your overall health while you age. Many studies show that resveratrol helps support health to many parts of the body, while supporting the energy and vitality of normal health for a longer period of time as we age.
Acts specifically on the chromosomes within your cells, which contain a person’s DNA. The active ingredient in Astral Fruit is known to activate the enzyme telomerase. By using this natural extract, RevGenetics believes they can transiently activate telomerase and help keep chromosomes and DNA in a healthy state, repair some of the damage done by aging, and maybe increase the amount of times cells can normally divide.**
In short, Resveratrol works on the overall health of multiple systems, while Astral Fruit works specifically on DNA repair, protection and cell division.
