Strongevity Rx: Cellular Energy for a Stronger, Longer Life!
When it comes to maximizing both quality and quantity of life, exercise and good nutrition are the two proven pillars. Beyond that, there is an ideal cellular target which has been shown time and time again, in recent scientific studies, to be very responsive to the supplementation of key nutrients, in precise dosages and combinations. That target is the mitochondria – the microscopic power plants which transform the food we eat into the energy which fuels all biological life. This universal energy molecule which provides 95 percent of the body’s energy is called ATP (adenosine triphosphate).
ATP is cellular energy — it is not a stimulant like caffeine which merely activates excitatory neurotransmitters for a short period of time. Cellular energy is different — it provides strength from within each and every one of the trillions of cells which make up you, and me. It’s literally energy for life.
Good News: When we’re young, the mitochondria work very efficiently and energy flows throughout the body like water coming out of a fire hose. Physical and mental strength are vital as a result. Heart disease, lifestyle cancers, and neurodegenerative conditions are virtually non-existent.
Bad News: As we age, especially beyond the 40-year mark, cellular energy levels begin to slump due to wear and tear on the mitochondria. That’s a problem. In fact, that’s a BIG problem. Scientists have discovered when mitochondria become unhealthy, they start to sputter like the engine in an old pick up truck with over 100,000 miles on it.
As the mitochondrial structure, including its DNA (mtDNA) suffer damage, they begin to dysfunction creating cellular energy deficiencies and excess oxidative damage to the genetic material within cells. Without consistent energy supply (energy homeostasis is what the scientists call it), brain cells (neurons) simply die. Muscle cells wither. Skin cells age rapidly. Other bodily cells misfire, mutate, and act differently than they’re supposed to. Deleterious conditions ranging from cancer to fatal heart disease, depression, diabetes, as well as neurodegenerative conditions including Alzheimer’s, find fertile ground.
Science now shows us: It is not merely the accumulation of years that makes us old — it is the accumulation of mitochondrial damage.
Even the highly promising focus of lengthening human life by preventing the shortening of telomeres (chromosome caps) appears to be dependent on maintaining and/or restoring optimal mitochondrial health and function (as reported in Nucleic Acids Research).
STRONGVITY Rx Protects, Restores, Rejuvenates, and Energizes Your Mitochondria
STRONGEVITY Rx is a unique supplement as it has been specifically, scientifically developed to restore and renew mitochondrial structure and function. Its formula contains a precise combination of 3 scientifically researched supplements in one. These and synergistically and bring to life a practical application of the ground-breaking clinical research findings in this field.
Key Ingredient #1: Pure, Micronized Creatine Monohydrate
Back in the 1990’s when I owned EAS, we were the first to introduce the fitness world to creatine supplementation. At the time, there were just a handful of scientific research studies which indicated creatine significantly increased muscle strength and lean body mass. After experiencing great results from using creatine myself, I wrote about it in my magazine at the time, Muscle Media. From there, as other fitness buff’s began to feel the power of creatine firsthand, the product just took off. There had never been a natural performance enhancer that worked this well ever before.
What we didn’t know at the time was that the powerful effects creatine has on muscle strength the tip of the iceberg. Fast-forward to today… over one hundred scientific studies have been conducted showing that creatine supplementation makes muscles stronger. It has also been shown to support brain-cell health and mental performance.
The pure creatine in STRONGEVITY Rx exerts its positive via the mitochondria where it increases energy production and balance (energy homeostasis). It does this by providing muscle cells, heart cells, brain cells and all the rest, with an extra phosphocreatine molecule that the mitochondria adds to ADP (adenosine diphosphate) to facilitate the rapid recycling of ATP. This basic biochemical reaction produces an incredibly profound positive effect on our strength, cognition, energy and longevity.
STRONGEVITY Rx contains pure, pharmaceutical grade, micronized creatine monohydrate — the exact form used in the most rigorous clinical studies and research centers around the world, including the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Here’s a look at what scientists are discovering in their creatine research projects…
Research by scientists at the University of Sydney and Macquarie University in Australia has shown that taking creatine can give a significant boost to working memory (up to 20% improvement) and fluid intelligence (up to 40% improvement in IQ). “Creatine supplementation gave a significantly measureable boost to brain power.” explains Dr. Caroline Rae, Lead Investigator of the Research Project at The University of Sydney. "Oral creatine monohydrate supplementation improves brain performance in a double-blind, placebo-controlled, cross-over trial… Creatine plays a pivotal role in brain-energy homeostasis… and 6 weeks of supplementation had a significantly positive effect… these findings underline a dynamic and significant role of brain energy capacity in influencing brain performance.”
Creatine is both safe and effective according to scientific studies. Side effects have been more myth than fact. For example, it was rumored that creatine supplementation may cause kidney stress in some users. A study recently reported (June 2013) in The Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition disproved that speculation: “… creatine supplementation did not affect kidney function in resistance-trained healthy individuals consuming a high-protein diet; thus reinforcing the safety of this dietary supplement.” (However, I do recommend that anyone with existing kidney, liver or heart disease consult with their physician before using STRONGEVITY Rx).
- And of course there are literally hundreds of studies which show creatine supplementation increases strength, lean body mass, and athletic performance. “University of Queensland (St. Lucia, Australia) researchers reported that lifters taking creatine increased the number of reps they were able to complete with 85% of their one-rep max by 40%, while those taking a placebo experienced no change in the number of reps they were able to complete with the same weight.”
Red meat is the richest dietary source of creatine — a couple servings of STRONGEVITY Rx have as much creatine as a steak the size of a laptop computer. I don’t eat anywhere near that much red meat; in fact, I typically just have an 8-ounce filet twice a month. For people like me who don’t eat a lot of steak, STRONGEVITY Rx will produce especially noticeable results within 2 weeks. According to The Journal of Human Evolution, there was a time long ago where our ancestors were almost exclusively meat eaters. Experts believe that the abundant creatine supply in those ancestors way of eating led directly to the rapid expansion of brain size which separates human beings from other primates. With this consideration, it is possible that our modern brains are creatine deficient and lack a consistent supply of the high-energy fuel they need to perform at their fullest potential. Supplementing with STRONGEVITY Rx will help ensure that creatine supplies are optimal to fuel a strong body and mind.
Key Ingredient #2: Precise Blend of Ubiquinol and Ubiquinone forms of Coenzyme Q10
Coenzyme Q10 is a substance similar to a vitamin. It is found in every cell of the body where it is utilized to produce energy within the mitochondria. It also functions as an antioxidant which protects mitochondria from damage caused by harmful molecules, free radicals. CoQ10 is naturally present in small amounts in a wide variety of foods but is particularly high in meats. Unfortunately, most people over the age of 30, and especially 40, have suboptimal levels of CoQ10 in their system and this is why CoQ10 supplementation is so important.
CoQ10 is available as a supplement in 2 primary forms: Ubiquinone and Ubiquinol. Combining them both helps increase the absorption of CoQ10 and ensures that a consistent supply will be available to aid mitochondrial function. Coenzyme Q10 has been shown in scientific studies to improve heart health, decrease risk of fatal heart attack, and help keep brain cells younger for longer. Here’s the BIG NEWS I’m so excited about: Breakthrough new research shows when CoQ10 is combined with creatine, the effects of both increase dramatically. What the scientific studies have revealed is that a combination of CoQ10 plus creatine has powerful effects that neither have on their own.
A study published in the Journal of Neurochemistry, evaluated the effects of creatine supplementation alone, CoQ10 supplementation alone, and the effects of a combined treatment (creatine and CoQ10 used together) on lifespan. Because, as you might imagine, clinical studies to evaluate human lifespan would take decades to complete, researchers used ‘R6/2′ mice with remarkable similarities to the human genome. The lifespan of the R6/2 that were given creatine increased by 17%; those supplemented with CoQ10 increased by 14%; and the ones being given both creatine and CoQ10 had a remarkable 22% increase in lifespan. “CoQ10 and creatine are promising agents for neuroprotection via their effect on improving mitochondrial function and cellular bioenergetics and their properties as antioxidants.” the study reports.
This incredible discovery offers tremendous promise to those of us who are passionate about living longer and living stronger. Creatine and CoQ10 each exert powerful effects on the mitochondria although they work through different mechanisms and pathways. Creatine plays a key role in energy production, and CoQ10 plays a supporting role in the creation of energy, by acting as a co-factor to the electron-transport chain within the mitochondria. CoQ10 also accepts unbound electrons which are byproducts of cellular energy production and neutralizes them before these (free radicals – unbound electrons) can damage genetic coding within mitochondrial DNA.
Key Ingredient #3: Bio-Active Cholecalciferol
This nutrient is the bio-active form of Vitamin D (D3). Although technically it’s not a vitamin; it’s a precursor to an important natural compound in the body called 'calcitriol.' Experts, including Dr. John Jacob Cannell, M.D., Executive Director of the Vitamin D Council, conclude that approximately 70 percent of the population in America is deficient in this very important nutrient. A primary source of cholecalciferol is produced in the skin as a result of exposure to sunlight. However, since most people work indoors and have been admonished to stay out of the sun, deficiency has become the rule, not the exception.
Low levels of serum Vitamin D in the blood are directly associated with early death; in fact, it’s as high of a risk factor as smoking and not exercising. As such, it’s my opinion that blood levels of cholecalciferol should be measured by your physician during every health screening. A deficiency of this hormone precursor should be as much of a red flag as dangerously high cholesterol is. Optimal blood levels of cholecalciferol have been shown to reduce our risk of heart disease, depression, diabetes, hypertension, autoimmune illness, at least 13 different types of cancer, and osteoporosis.
In addition, cholecalciferol supplementation was shown in a recent scientific study possibly help up-regulate the body’s ability to burn fat in response to exercise. A study conducted by researchers from the University of Minnesota (funded by the National Institutes of Health) found that overweight people have better success in losing weight when their Vitamin D3 levels are increased. When combined with healthy eating, supplementation with Vitamin D3 helps promote increased weight loss among those whose levels are low. For each nanogram per milliliter increase in blood cholecalciferol levels, it was observed that an extra half-pound loss in weight occurred. “Evidence suggests adequate levels of Vitamin D may improve success with weight management programs and lower levels of obesity.” summarizes one expert.
The primary reason cholecalciferol is included in the STRONGEVITY Rx formula, is that recent scientific discoveries show that many of the health-enhancing effects of cholecalciferol supplementation are a result of its positive effects on mitochondrial function, especially in muscle. A breakthrough study published in The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism proved that test subjects who received cholecalciferol treatment had significantly improved mitochondrial function. The lead researcher on this study stated: “… for the first time, we demonstrate a link between mitochondria and Vitamin D in human skeletal muscle.” At the beginning of this study, test subjects were suffering muscle weakness and fatigue due to Vitamin D deficiency. ALL participants reported an improvement in fatigue and energy by the end of the research project. Here, yet again, we see evidence that improving mitochondrial performance leads to significantly positive effects in the daily lives of people like you and I.
Strongevity Rx also contain several support nutrients including Pure L-Glutamine, Carnosine and Zinc Citrate
Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in muscle tissue and has long been known to support protein synthesis and nitrogen retention. Glutamine also plays a key role in supporting the immune system. It is included in the STRONGEVITY Rx formula not just for these benefits but rather, because it is a source of cellular energy (after glucose) and even more importantly, glutamine helps protect mitochondrial structure and function under conditions of stress, as confirmed by a study published in The American Journal of Physiology. Again, I cannot emphasize enough how important it is to our overall health, strength, and longevity to apply scientific knowledge such as this.
The mineral zinc (citrate form) and the amino acid carnosine round out the STRONGEVITY Rx formula. Each of these nutrients have been added for their neuroprotective and anti-oxidant properties which help support mitochondrial health and function.
STRONGEVITY Rx is naturally-flavored. Simply mix a spoonful with a glass of cold water, stir a few seconds, and enjoy a delicious glass of orange fruit punch. It’s simple and easy to use. A serving of Strongevity Rx can also be added to your favorite protein shake for use as an excellent post-workout supplement stack.
Recap and Review
A virtual mountain of scientific research now exists that makes it crystal clear it is absolutely possible to protect the mitochondria and its DNA through targeted nutritional supplementation. That is what STRONGEVITY Rx is all about. As the number of years since our birth increase, and especially beyond age 40, unless we do something to intervene, we lose brain cells, muscle strength, and energy every year. We now know that getting old is not just a matter of age, it’s a matter of mitochondrial damage and dysfunction.
So we know that exercise helps mitigate premature aging. We know that eating right (not dieting) helps us prevent disease and allows us to live longer. And now, with this breakthrough discovery, STRONGEVITY Rx may offer another powerful pathway to keep the body and mind stronger for longer. As I’ve explained in this report, supplementing with the ingredients in STRONGEVITY Rx have been shown to produce these benefits:
- Boost Muscle Strength
- Increase Mental Energy
- Support Longevity
- Improve Exercise Results
If you’re anything like me and you’re excited about experiencing these benefits, then I invite you to give STRONGEVITY Rx a try. It’s available now on a limited basis.
Unfortunately, in the supplement market, we often see companies using low-quality ingredients in their products to compete on price and increase their profits. The supplement companies win — the supplement consumers lose in this scenario. I’ve been warning people about this practice for over two decades and it’s still as prevalent now as it’s ever been.
STRONGEVITY Rx, is guaranteed to contain all the ingredients the label claims, in the highest quality form, and it is only manufactured in a GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) Certified facility.
With STRONGEVITY Rx, you’re investing in the highest quality supplement with scientifically researched results. Experience the Power of STRONGEVITY Rx yourself and you will see and feel the difference it can make in your fitness program.
Each bottle of STRONGEVITY Rx contains 30 servings. I recommend one to two servings per day for women and two to three servings daily for men (men require a higher dosage because we have more energy-hungry muscle cells, and mitochondria, to feed). No loading dose is required (it was once thought that for creatine and other such nutrients to be effective, we had to take extra amounts for the first week. Science has shown that is not necessary though). I go through six, 30-serving bottles, every two months. Most men will see great results at two servings of STRONGEVITY Rx a day (six, 30-serving bottles for a 12-week supply). Women can get good results with three, 30-serving bottles, as a 12-week supply.
