Las Vegas, NV (May 27, 2013) – Longevinex® (long-jev-in-ex), maker of the leading red-wine longevity pill, has added the stress relieving amino acid theanine to its patent-applied-for 5th-generation Longevinex Advantage® formula to address the stressful challenges of modern living.
“In this aging-is-optional era, advances in biology now indicate the clock hands of biological time can be reversed at the cellular level, but strikingly we find psychological stress can over-ride the beneficial effects of so-called anti-aging pills,” says Bill Sardi, originator of Longevinex®.
“Newly-understood science points to elevated adrenal stress hormones that are linked to unhealthy aging — particularly in the brain and other organs. So it now becomes important to provide a safe and effective ingredient in Longevinex Advantage® that addresses stress and anxiety, a growing problem in our modern society,” Sardi says
Sardi believes psychological stress may be a primary reason why animal studies using the red wine molecule resveratrol have failed. “The animals are kept in crowded cages, subjected to artificial light in the day when they are naturally nocturnal animals, and are often force-fed,” says Sardi.
Sardi says theanine is an amino acid that is similar to glutamate, a stimulating brain chemical (think of monosodium glutamate or MSG in foods). Theanine counters the adverse effects of stimulants like caffeine, glutamate and MSG as well as detoxifies the liver and brain from environmental toxins.
In recent published reports it has been shown that individuals who take drugs like beta blockers that interfere with adrenal stress hormones tend to exhibit fewer abnormal cellular growths, slower brain aging, and are less likely to over-eat and experience less sleeplessness. But beta blockers are fraught with side effects including fatigue, breathing problems and depletion of a key antioxidant coenzyme Q10.
“Theanine is nature’s beta blocker” by virtue of its ability to naturally inhibit excessive adrenal stress hormones at a safe and modest dose,” says Sardi. Longevinex Advantage® provides a full 100 milligrams of natural L-theanine.
In humans theanine has been found to improve mental focus and attention. In the laboratory, theanine improved memory of stress-induced animals. Sardi says the reason why animal studies are deemed important is because they eliminate any possible placebo effect.
“I think everybody realizes, as humans, we are vulnerable to stress. We are one phone call away – a call about a loved one being diagnosed with an illness, a call that we lost our job or suffered a financial loss – from a heart-racing stressful event that worsens out health,” says Sardi.
Chronic stress can result in overeating, blood pressure outside the normal range, and even anxiety in certain social situations like public speaking. The idea here is to keep a lid on external stress with a natural molecule like theanine, says Sardi.
Theanine, naturally derived from green tea (but without caffeine or undesirable fluoride) as provided in Longevinex Advantage®, has also been demonstrated to prolong the life of lower forms of life (roundworms) when biologically stressed, improves circulation via dilation (widening) of blood vessels when under stress and even protects against lack of oxygen in the brain. Remarkably, theanine has even been demonstrated to inhibit shrinkage of the brain. Even in low-dose, theanine has mood-enhancing properties.
It is not surprising to learn theanine helps healthcare workers remain free of influenza infection, which confirms the link between stress and immunity. Nor is it unexpected to find theanine encourages mental alertness in humans.
Longevinex Advantage® was formulated for consumers who don’t just want to live longer and healthier, but who also want to look in the mirror and see a younger image, see the visible signs of aging reverse — to have thicker darker hair, smoother skin and viagra-like effects,” says Sardi.
Another key ingredient in Longevinex Advantage® is hyaluronic acid which is a Jello-like molecule that cushions and hydrates skin and joints and thickens hair.
