As we age the proportion of worn out, diseased, scarred and dead cells in our bodies increases. Autophagy is the system that the body uses to digest away these old tissues (like sagging skin), but unless you are willing to get really hungry on a regular basis, autophagy won’t turn on. The next best way may be to take the proteolytic enzyme serrapeptase, the enzyme butterflies use to dissolve their chrysalis. It may support the body in digesting worn out, diseased and dead tissues in us as well. Note: Serrapeptase is contraindicated in those that have surgical mesh implants since they may be held in place with scar tissue which serrapeptase may dissolve.
C60 is a sphere of 60 carbon atoms. As such it is incredibly small and can go virtually anywhere in the body. Research shows that C60 may stimulate hair growth in humans1
and in one study with mice, it was shown to increase lifespan by 90%2
. This would make C60 the most powerful life extending agent known. Rejuvelon contains 99.95% pure C60 mixed in organic olive oil under inert gas.

One of the main purposes of sleep is to allow our brains regenerate. Studies show that sleep deprivation lowers levels of superoxide and melatonin in the brain which cause fatigue, irritability and a build up of tissue damage. Supplementing with melatonin supports rejuvenative sleep and has been shown to raise superoxide dismutase (SOD) levels, the antioxidant responsible for neutralizing the superoxide free radical. Note: We no longer put SOD directly into Rejuvelon as it is a highly unstable molecule that requires chemical stabilizers. Instead we rely on melatonin to increase SOD internally.
In 2009 European scientists1
discovered that it is an accumulation of hydrogen peroxide in the hair follicle that causes hair to turn gray. We literally bleach our hair from the inside out. Our body makes hydrogen peroxide to fight infections, detoxify chemicals and other toxins, and simply as a result of aging. Catalase, the enzyme antioxidant that turns hydrogen peroxide into harmless water and oxygen may support natural hair color. While gray hair may simply be a cosmetic issue, this same hydrogen peroxide in the body can also bleach our DNA and other tissues causing many of the symptoms of aging. Since catalase does not survive digestion, we’ve put it into a suppository.
