Calorie restriction mimicking (CRM) is the reduction of calorie intake by 20% (mild) to 65% (severe) without detrimentally effecting the nutrient levels in the body. CRM is a unique scientifically verified longevity strategy
It has been verified that the restriction of caloric intake modulates the rate of aging. This is done by preventing the onset of cellular pathologies that we typically associate with the process of growing old. CRM reduces metabolic rate through the suppression of a specific nutrient sensor. Age-associated disorders damage proteins and facilitate the breakdown of DNA, potentially bringing about detrimental changes in gene expression. The body's nutrient sensor is responsible for a cascade of events that stimulate the cycle of cell propagation, DNA binding and the balance of intra/inter cellular insulin that affects blood sugar levels. When practiced correctly CRM can manipulate the nutrient sensor to keep our blood levels in a natural state of homeostasis.
CRM calls upon our body's inherent survival instincts to self-regulate cell proliferation, internal DNA repair and protein synthesis by decreasing healing time while increasing cellular lifespan. CRM induces a routine of cellular self-maintenance and diverse cellular functions which enhance the digestion of dysfunctional or unnecessary cellular components. CRM reduces the accumulation of molecular damage due to oxadative stess, which in turn taxes the metabolic system and prevents cell proliferation.
Today science is assembling "team longevity." A group of genes including Klotho, AMPK, ATM, ATP, mTOR, SIRT, NAD+ and insulin/GF-1 are revealing themselves to be cruicial to the mechanisms that support, suppress, activate and protect cellular longevity. Team longevity are anti-aging superstars that hold the keys to cellular detoxification, DNA repair, collagen production, cognition maintenance, mitochondrial health for cellular function and circadian sleep pattern equilibrium.
CRM benefits include but are not limited to:
Improved cardiovascular function
Balanced blood sugar
Orderly cell death, increased recovery rate and maintenaince of DNA integrity
Decreased healing span and increased health span
Increased muscle mass
Improved brain function and cognitive maintenance
Improved nerve function
Improved physical ability
Stimulation of cell activators and growth factors
