How to live 100 years without growing old
Americans are living longer and starting to take anti-aging pills. But "how old will you appear when you are 82, or 102, or 122?"
Imagine an advertisement for a pill that would extend your lifespan. The ad features the picture of an old man blowing out the candles on his 100th birthday cake. This ad has an underlying negative connotation. Do you know what it is?
It is difficult to comprehend the fact that the public doesn’t really want to live longer. You may disagree, but our experience in marketing a resveratrol pill for the past six years has been disappointing. Ventures to sell resveratrol pills via multilevel marketing, direct mail, TV infomercials and full-page magazine advertising, all have fallen flat. There is good reason for this. People want to live young, not old.
The dream of Ponce de Leon to find a fountain of youth means something different than longevity. People would rather choose to look young than live long. Look at all the money spent on cosmetics, hair treatments, plastic surgery and contact lenses, versus nebulous products that pretend to offer a 100-year lifespan. The latter fall into a category of over-hyped products believed to be nothing more than snake oil. Furthermore, there is no conclusive way to put these products to test since they would require a 100-year research study.
The fear of living longer and experiencing more years of physical incapacitation and senility causes many people to say they do not care to live 100 years. “I wouldn’t really want to live that long” is heard time after time. Many express concerns their retirement plans would run out of money should everyone live to be a centenarian. Others even express concern about over-population. It is clear, an anti-aging pill must promise to deliver quality of life along with quantity of life.
But what if there is such a youth pill – a pill that would make a person look younger than their biological age? We know the molecule of a youthful appearance is hyaluronan (aka hyaluronic acid). I actually wrote a book about hyaluronan in 2000. Since then I have received numerous phone calls, letters and emails claiming that a pill which contains hyaluronan stimulates the regeneration of smooth skin, thick hair and flexible joints.
We think the public will adopt a pill that attempts to deliver youthful aging rather than just extending the years of life. This doesn’t mean people are going to look like they are in their 20’s after they have lived eight decades, but we all know people who don’t look much younger than their biological age. We now know why.
Toward this end, Longevinex has developed its 4th generation product with all of the ingredients in Longevinex - resveratrol, quercetin, rice bran IP6, vitamin D3 - plus hyaluronan, accompanied by lutein and extracts from cocoa bean, green tea and grape seed. We call it LONGEVINEX ADVANTAGE™. It is now provided in a 60-capsule foil package. You take 1-2 capsules per day.
Longevinex Advantage™ is just one step short of entering a time machine. We hope you will enjoy it.
