Epitalon (also known as Epithalon or Epithalone) is the synthetic version of the polypeptide Epithalamin which is naturally produced in the pineal gland.
It was discovered by the Russian scientist Professor Vladimir Khavinson, who then conducted epitalon-related research for the next 35 years in both animal and human clinical trials. The results were astounding. For the first time ever, human clinical trials proved beyond doubt that the substance consisted of powerful life extension and anti-aging possibilities.
THE FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH PEPTIDE
Epitalon is considered the “fountain of youth” peptide. It is a tetra-peptide, which means that it is composed of four amino acid chains. The peptide is used to regulate the cell cycle during telomerase activity. Telomerase, also called telomere terminal transferase, is an enzyme made of protein and RNA subunits that elongates chromosomes. When telomerase activity is not present (when we age), our cells age. Our telomeres get shorter and begin to die off. If telomerase is activated in our cells, our telomeres lengthen, the cell continues to grow and divide, delaying the aging process.
Epitalon’s primary role is to increase the natural production of telomerase, a natural enzyme that helps cells reproduce telomeres, which are the protective parts of our DNA. This allows the replication of our DNA so the body can grow new cells and rejuvenate old ones. Younger people produce a relatively large amount of telomerase and longer telomeres. The longer the telomere strands are, the better cell health and replication they provide. However, as people age, the production of telomerase falls and consequently cell replication and health decline. This is the main reason that people age.It also plays a role in regulating metabolism, increasing the sensitivity of hypothalamus to its natural hormonal influences, normalizing the function of the anterior pituitary and regulating the levels of gonadotropins and melatonin in the body.
Benefits of Epitalon:
As a result of Epitalon’s effect on telomerase production, the benefits are unique and far-reaching and include:
An increase of human lifespan by lengthening telomeres in human cells
Promotion of deeper sleep
Delay and prevention of age-related diseases such as cancer, heart disease, and dementia
Acts as an anti-oxidant by reducing lipid oxidation and ROS (Reactive oxygen species) along with normalizing T cell function.
Improvement of skin health and appearance
Healing of injured and deteriorating muscle cells
Restores and normalizes melatonin levels in older people who have lost some pineal function due to aging
Can increases resistance to emotional stress
Recommend one 2 week treatment every 4-6 months for optimal results.
Numerous studies have shown the importance of telomerase production and telomere rejuvenation in fighting the symptoms of aging. As Epitalon has been shown to increase the production of telomerase which in turn strengthens and lengthens telomeres, this means that Epitalon can play a vital role in decreasing the aging process and thus extend human longevity.
