Science Behind Weil Juvenon Support for Health and Aging Supplement
How does Weil Juvenon Healthy Aging Support help you maintain optimum health as you age?
Research has shown that the decay of the mitochondria is an important factor in aging. Mitochondria are the organelles within the cell that convert amino acids, fatty acids and sugars into the energy our bodies need. Research performed by Juvenon scientists as well as others has demonstrated that as we age, the efficiency of the mitochondria diminishes, as does their quantity per cell. The resulting effect is a body that begins operating at one-half to even one-fourth the energy it had at youth. The brain consumes more energy than any other organ in the body, and is perhaps the most important organ affected by aging. A decrease of energy in the brain and central nervous system affects mental acuity and mood as well as the activities of all organs throughout the body.
Weil Juvenon Support for Health and Aging is a supplement of natural substances the body normally manufactures at sufficient levels for maximum health in youth but in insufficient quantities as we age. Weil Juvenon's natural health supplements are a patented formula of normal mitochondrial metabolites. Laboratory experiments have shown that this composition of supplements help maintain mitochondrial function as cells age, by:
- Maintaining the membrane potential*
- Promoting metabolism and cell function*
- Enhancing anti-oxidative protection*
- Promoting cellular health*.
Stimulation of Support Function
Weil Juvenon for Health and Aging contains a compound proven to stimulate the synthesis of cardiolipin, a key component of the mitochondria. Cardiolipin is a phospholipid that is required, along with specific transport enzymes, to maintain the potential and overall integrity of the mitochondrial membrane. The membrane potential is the result of the separation of charge between the inner and outer surface of the membrane, a process that requires energy-driven pumps to move charge against a gradient. A young, healthy mitochondrion (one that contains sufficient cardiolipin) operates with a maximum membrane potential and therefore has maximum energy producing potential. The Weil Juvenon composition also activates the delivery of high-energy food-derived products into the mitochondria, where they are transformed into a specific chemical form of energy (ATP). This captured energy is used to fuel the cellular machinery for activities such as muscle contraction and neurotransmission.
The Weil Juvenon compound is also structurally similar to an endogenous neurotransmitter. This can contribute to the reported beneficial effects to the nervous system like enhanced memory, elevated mood, enhanced mental acuity, and more sound sleep.
Promotion of Cellular Antioxidants
Weil Juvenon’s patented composition contains substances to maintain healthy cells. Juvenon scientists have demonstrated and documented the production of cell-damaging oxidants in body tissues under normal physiological conditions. The bulk of these oxidants can be controlled or neutralized by cellular antioxidants, but a portion of these toxic oxidants invariably escape this defense and survive to contribute to the aging process. Furthermore, as the body ages the antioxidant defense becomes less, as a consequence of accumulated damage negatively affecting the efficiency of the cells’ defense-building enzymes.
To address this concern Weil Juvenon has included a compound containing two important properties. First, working in concert with the compound described above, the Weil Juvenon supplement plays a critical role in assisting the conversion of food into energy. Secondly, it provides protection to the cell from damaging oxidants, including the highly reactive substances known as free radicals. Free radicals are the chemical by-products produced during the burning of food to form energy. They are extremely toxic to the cell because they oxidize and distort its vital components. This constituent of the Weil Juvenon product is an amphipathic substance, meaning that it is both water and lipid soluble. As such, it can penetrate and protect lipid containing cell membranes as well as water soluble cell components. Another key characteristic of this multi-functional compound is its ability to be regenerated to an active form, within the cell, after reacting with and neutralizing an oxidant. It can literally provide protection from oxidants to all of the cell components. In addition to being an antioxidant, it helps maintain a high membrane potential by acting on other cellular antioxidants, including vitamins C and E, and glutathione, to keep them fully charged for maximum cellular protection from oxidants.
As perhaps the most potent of the natural cellular antioxidants, it is very easily oxidized due to its low redox potential. This makes the Weil Juvenon compound a more attractive substance for the radical to attack, sparing the vital cell structures from destruction. Listed below are some of the specific beneficial effects observed at the cellular level:
- Maintaining a high membrane potential*
- Maintaining optimum metabolic activity*
- Increasing energy production*
- Reducing the level of free radicals*
"The effects include, happier mental state, more energy, less stress, more self-confident."

"Feel more alert when I get up - can get up rather than feeling sleepy - but also found that when I awaken in the middle of the night, it doesn't appear to take as long to fall back asleep. Normally, if I'm awakened during the night, it can take 1-2 hours for me to fall back asleep."

"...A sense of calm. More clarity. I definitely have more energy, and it is consistent. I think my memory has improved and or is improving. My sleep is more sound and I don't awake sluggish, as I use to, especially if I only got 6-7 hrs of sleep. I also think my spirits are brighter and I don't fret as much."
