Pre-clinical and clinical studies have proven that periodic fasting, done for several consecutive days, is a very powerful intervention that our bodies learned to naturally cope with by protecting and rejuvenating itself. These two factors are both anti-aging measures that offer additional health benefits. The ProLon® Fasting Mimicking Diet® has been clinically tested and found to promote beneficial effects in a wide variety of conditions ranging from excess weight and fasting blood glucose, to growth factors associated with DNA damage and aging.
Clinical Study Methodology
Randomized controlled trial of 100 subjects, 71 completed three cycles of the ProLon® either in a randomized phase (N=39) or after being crossed over from a control diet group to the FMD group (N=32). Control subjects continued their normal diet. ProLon participants consumed the Fasting Mimicking Diet (FMD) for five consecutive days per month for three months. Measurements were performed prior to the diet (before) and during the recovery period after the 3rd cycle (after).
