Certificate of Analysis
Who wouldn’t want to live longer and look younger? Asc2P, or phosphorylated ascorbate, may well provide part of the answer.
Asc2P is a rare and very stable form of vitamin C. It already features as an ingredient in the formulation Telomeres Maintenance, but this form of vitamin C, with its exceptional properties, deserves to be considered as a supplement in its own right, and taken at an appropriate dose.
An anti-ageing super-vitamin
¤ During the last 20 years of his life, Nobel prize winner Linus Pauling advocated taking large doses of vitamin C to delay ageing and age-related diseases. He was undoubtedly on the right track but at that time, the ‘right form’ of vitamin C did not exist.
¤ Asc2P is indeed a very special form of vitamin C – it is around 20 times more potent than the classic form of vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid) and has specific properties such as the ability to penetrate easily into the cells’ interior and protect against intracellular oxidation.
¤ The Centre of Research at the University of Hiroshima, headed by the scientist K Furumoto from the Department of Cell Biology, has clearly demonstrated that Asc2P appreciably reduced the age-related decline in levels of telomerase, the enzyme which prevents shortening of the tips of chromosomes (telomeres), a phenomenon now believed to be a major cause of ageing.
¤ In vitro studies have shown that adding Asc2P to human vascular endothelial cells prevents – via suppression of intracellular oxidative stress - the shortening of telomeres by up to 62%, while L-ascorbic acid, the natural form of vitamin C, had no such effect being much less able to penetrate the cells. In addition, the Acs2P form of vitamin C prevents the cell from expanding in size, an important indicator of cell senescence.
¤ A large in vivo study is currently underway at the Vida International Institute in Costa Rica to determine the effects of Asc2P on slowing down human cellular ageing and ageing in general.
¤ These features, combined with its zero toxicity, make this ‘super-vitamin’ highly recommended both for its vitamin-potent action and its outstanding anti-ageing effects.
