Developed by the University of South California’s Longevity department, ProLon is a plant-based meal plan that focuses on promoting a longer, healthier life. Dr. Joseph Antoun, CEO and Chairman, leads the Fasting Mimicking programme (an off-shoot of intermittent fasting). But, what can ProLon do for you? The plant-based meal plan is said to push the body to rejuvenate cells, promote anti-ageing by lowering the risk of conditions such as high cholesterol, diabetes and obesity, and lastly, burn unhealthy fats.
“These impactful mind and body changes happen with the ProLon 5-Day Fasting Diet because every cell in the body needs calories and when fasting, cells go through a protectionist mode that rejuvenates them. This process is called autophagy and [its discoverer, Yoshinori Ohsumi] won the Nobel Prize in Medicine in 2016. These cellular benefits happen on top of the fast metabolic and weight changes that are aligned with healthy ageing and lifestyle enhancement,” explains Dr. Antoun. Delivered to your door, devotees learn that ProLon is not a diet but a lifestyle.
