DOUGLAS, Isle of Man, April 15, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Juvenescence Ltd. (Juvenescence), a life sciences company focused on modifying aging and increasing human health span and longevity, today announced the launch of its first product. Metabolic Switch is an evidence-based, breakthrough C6 Ketone Di-ester drink that, once consumed, puts the consumer in ketosis to promote a healthy metabolism.
"We believe in a world where getting older doesn't mean slowing down," said Colin Watts, chief executive officer, JuvLife. "Metabolic Switch switches on your metabolism which over time can sustain energy, protect and promote lean muscle and support healthy blood sugar and immune function— all conditions associated with aging. It is a clinically proven product developed by Juvenescence to help consumers support their healthy aging goals."
A recently published study in Metabolic Syndrome and Related Disorders showed that only 12.2 percent of Americans have a healthy metabolism.1 Metabolic health is defined as having ideal levels of blood sugar, triglycerides (a type of fat in the blood), high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, blood pressure and waist circumference, without using medications.1 Maintaining a healthy and flexible metabolism is essential to achieving an optimal health span and increasing longevity and energy.2
For those who are looking for a tool to support a healthy metabolism and sustain energy through ketosis but finding it hard to stick to the ketogenic diet, Metabolic Switch can give you some of the energy and healthy aging benefits of ketosis without the need for restrictive dietary changes. Each serving of Metabolic Switch is 2.5 fl oz (75 mL) and contains 25g of C6 Ketone Di-ester that will naturally raise the levels of ketones in the blood to quickly generate a state of ketosis that lasts for several hours. Proprietary to Metabolic Switch is C6 Ketone Di-ester, a unique food ingredient that was developed in partnership with The Buck Institute for Research on Aging and tested in both pre-clinical and clinical studies for safety and efficacy.
"As people age, metabolism changes— and for some people that leads to lower energy and weight gain," said Brianna Stubbs, DPhil, lead translational scientist at The Buck Institute. "Research suggests that enabling a state of ketosis through a variety of methods including the intake of ketone esters, such as those found in Metabolic Switch, can promote a healthy metabolism."
C6 Ketone Di-ester, the key ingredient in Metabolic Switch received Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) status following an evaluation of scientific procedures, principles and published and unpublished data by a panel of experts.
Metabolic Switch is available for purchase online at JuvLabs.com in 2-count ($24.95), 7-count ($74.95) and 28-count ($255.50). Metabolic Switch has a substantial price advantage compared to other ketone esters and can be as low as $8.00 per dose when bought on subscription, which is available at JuvLabs.com in 7-count ($63.71) and 28-count ($217.18) options. Users can visit the product website as an educational resource for information about healthy aging and how maintaining a healthy metabolism will benefit your lifetime.
Ketosis is a metabolic state defined by the presence of a high concentration of ketones in the blood. Ketones are made naturally when your body releases stored fat to use for energy. Glucose (blood sugar) is a major fuel source for many cells in the body. However, when the body's stores of glucose or carbohydrates are running low, the body starts to release more fat and converts it to ketones, so the body is fueled by fat and ketones rather than sugar. Metabolic Switch by Juvenescence naturally raises the levels of ketones in the blood to quickly generate a state of ketosis, which can deliver some of the energy and healthy aging benefits of ketosis without the need to follow a restrictive diet.
