In 2019, it was reported that the life expectancy for the average Singaporean was 81.4 and 85.7 years for men and women respectively, making it among the highest in the world. However, this number does not take into account the quality of life of the elderly, which is more dependent on one’s health span – closely tied to biological age.
With the advancements in science and medicine over the years, ageing research has now entered an unprecedented new era. It has been long observed that the pace of ageing varies from person to person. This highlights a key concept that due to underlying biological mechanisms, biological age at an individual level can be separated from chronological age. The application of biological age as a measure of an individual’s health status offers new perspectives on the extension of both lifespan as well as healthspan. Unlike lifespan, which tabulates the number of years lived, healthspan is defined as the number of healthy years one lives.
Enter Regenosis, a leading geroscience and wellness centre in Singapore seeking to close the gap on fitness and nutrition literacy, such that everyone can self-sufficiently improve their healthspan and live their life to the fullest potential even in old age.
With their RealHealth programme, they go in-depth into understanding an individual’s current health, genetics and lifestyle habits and tailor a lifestyle plan according to their genetic and body composition. This includes close consultations with specialists to educate and advise on how best to adjust your lifestyle and ensure that is done in a sustainable manner such that in the long-term, individuals can continue keeping up even after the programme is over.
One big component of the RealHealth Programme is Rejuvant LifeTabs — a supplement that transforms the way we age by introducing Alpha-Ketogluterate (AKG) into our diet. AKG is a key molecule in the Krebs cycle, which determines the overall rate of the citric acid cycle of an organism and is responsible for most of our body’s energy needs. It is a nitrogen scavenger, a source of glutamate and glutamine that stimulates protein synthesis and inhibits protein degradation in muscles and enhances bone tissue formation. A central metabolic fuel for cells of the gastrointestinal tract as well, AKG has been proven safe and effective in multiple clinical applications – not only does it help in extending lifespan, AKG also prolongs healthspan by retarding the onset of age-related diseases and ailments (Wu et al., 2016).
Currently, Rejuvant LifeTabs with its use of Calcium-AKG is the only health supplement in the world to be clinically-proven to reverse biological age by 7 to 8 years (Shahmirzadi et al., 2020). Rejuvant LifeTabs does not exclusively cater to the elderly but rather to anyone who is looking to live life healthily, akin to their prime years, by boosting vitality and preventing age-related degenerative diseases which could plague one’s health in the future.
Distributed by Regenosis, Rejuvant LifeTabs boasts the culmination of twenty years of anti-ageing research by incorporating the use of LifeAKG. LifeAKG, Rejuvant’s proprietary, patent-pending, sustained-release formulation of AKG, is shown to provide more energy, better sleep, weight loss, bodybuilding effects, and even more youthful skin for its consumers. Additionally, whilst other supplements commonly use chemical ingredients like the “anti-ageing” drug rapamycin and metformin to produce similar age-reversal effects in experimental trials, there is a key difference – AKG is naturally made by our bodies, and it is already considered safe to consume by regulators. According to University of North Dakota ageing researcher Holly Brown-Borg, “The big thing about this (AKG) is that its safety profile is so good”.
