ProLon app improves consumer journey and helps optimize health and wellness through education, goal setting, and lifestyle tracking before, during, and after the Five-Day Fasting Mimicking Diet
Los Angeles, Calif.—June 21, 2018—L-Nutra, Inc., makers of the ProLon Fasting Mimicking Diet (FMD), today announced the launch of its new free app for iOS and Android mobile devices. The ProLon app is designed to guide and support those participating in L-Nutra’s proprietary five-day FMD.
Exclusively licensed by L-Nutra from the Longevity Institute of the University of Southern California (USC), ProLon is the first and only Fasting Mimicking Diet. It was developed at USC under Valter Longo and his lab after 20 years of research on aging and fasting. Scientifically proven to mimic the beneficial effects of water fasting while providing the body with essential macro and micro-nutrients, this patented diet is the only nutri-technology that has been preclinically and clinically tested to induce multi-system regeneration, optimize metabolic heath, and enhance healthy aging. It includes soups, crackers, bars, drinks, and supplements made from 66 plant-based ingredients.
The ProLon app is a convenient and indispensable tool for those embarking on a Fasting Mimicking Diet, providing educational materials, daily tips, motivation, and metrics for measuring one’s progress. It provides consumers with information about what happens to the body during this type of fast and what to expect on each day. Users can input their weight and rate their sleep, stress, and energy levels; and for those who would like to measure the FMD’s metabolic benefits, they can also record lab results for markers such as cholesterol, triglycerides, inflammation, and fasting blood glucose. Furthermore, the ProLon app is uniquely connected to over 300 other health and fitness apps and, if desired, can be set up to automatically populate data from iPhone® Health, Fitbit®, MapMyRun®, Jawbone UP®, and many more.
“The ProLon app offers at no cost a holistic snapshot of one’s health in order to create awareness around lifestyle choices, objectively monitor critical health markers, and motivate people to pursue a healthy lifestyle—especially when they see that it is possible to make significant health improvements in only five days,” says Joseph Antoun MD, CEO of L-Nutra. “We wanted to optimize our consumers’ experience and support before, during, and after their fasting journey. This aligns with our ultimate mission of helping people manage the impact of age-related disease and increase their healthspan—the length of time that they are healthy—using the safe and proven method of FMD.”
New and existing ProLon users are encouraged to download and take advantage of this resource for the best FMD experience. The ProLon app can be download from the iTunes® or Google Play® app stores on your mobile device. The ProLon Fasting Mimicking Diet can be purchased through the app as well.
