Recipe for Youth and Vitality

How rejuvenation offers a new lease on life, regardless of how old one is.

As we get older, we experience many changes, especially physical ones. We may find ourselves becoming slower or more forgetful. Some diseases that are more common in older adults may also be creeping up. These changes and the rate of ageing are subjective in different individuals due to different lifestyle, genetic makeup and environmental factors. Yet there is one same thing that every different person seems to desire, that is, the key to stay healthy and young as long as possible, or even to reverse the biological clock.

Even as it is seemingly impossible to ‘grow younger’; it is certainly possible to age with grace. “Ageing gracefully is all about the quality of life you are going to get when you grow older,” says head o the Health and Wellness department of Zell-V. “Imagine how fantastic it will be if everyday in life, even if you have retired, you are still productive, healthy and full of vitality.” Well then, how can we get there? “While it is crucial to maintain a healthy lifestyle (throughout your life, and not only when you are old), rejuvenation of our internal organs – those that play a direct role in ageing – is the key towards health and vitality, regardless of how old we are.

 “There are three major systems of our body which control ageing – the endocrine, immune and detoxification systems,”  “When these three systems are imbalanced, ageing will be accelerated – this will be directly shown in our body and face.

1)    Endocrine System                                                                                            
“The main function of the endocrine system is hormone excretion, which influences almost every cell, organ, and function of our body. Major glands that make up the endocrine system are the pituitary (the master gland that regulates overall hormone production as well as producing HgH), and adrenal and reproductive glands, which are the ovaries and testes.”

2)    Immune System
The immune system is the body’s defense against infectious organisms and invaders. “The cells involved are the white blood cells which seek out and destroy disease-causing organisms or substances,” .  “However, there is a gland that is vital to the immune system but it shrinks with age, which is the thymus gland. The thymus produces T lymphocytes (white blood cells). When we are at puberty, the thymus is at about 35g, but when we are at the age of 60 to 65, it is about half a gramme. If we don’t take care of the thymus, our antibody and defense function will decrease – we will easily get sick and will take a longer time to recover.”

3)    Detoxification System
“The liver and kidney are both detoxification organs. The liver regenerates itself by producing its own cells, but the moment it starts to degenerate, it will loose the function to detoxify the toxins in the body, which come from various sources, including the food that we eat and air that we breathe. “The moment the toxin is detoxified, it has to be removed from the body, and this is carried out by the world’s most intelligent filter– the kidneys. Diseases such as diabetes and hypertension can cause kidney degeneration. And when that happens, then is no turning back.

Zell-V cellular therapy and sheep placenta extract are able to activate and rejuvenate the cells of the organs in these systems without side effects. Growth factors extracted from the placenta with advanced technology can effectively encourage “communication” among the cells, and therefore reactivate and rejuvenate the cells that have aged prematurely or weakened. These growth factors are natural occurring molecules that are necessary for the cell regeneration process, particularly in the rejuvenation of organs and glands. “Take for example adrenals (of the endocrine system). The hormone these glands secrete controls mood such as anger and interest. People with weak adrenals don’t exude much passion or interest in life. “To treat this condition, instead of pumping hormones into the body, which may lead to various side effects, the better way is to rejuvenate the glands. When adrenals are rejuvenated, they produce the proper hormone for interest that keeps the body going, especially in a city life. You will have more passion and focus in work. All the stress you face, you are going to take it as a challenge. You have seen people who are always on the go and don’t seem to get tired. You can be like that too. “This goes the same with other organs. The moment you rejuvenate the three systems, they will work together to maintain optimal health and function, and your body will become better in warding off disease, detoxifying toxins, producing antibodies, etc. – all which ultimately decrease the rate of ageing.”
