Bebalm for a Healthy Ageing

A New Ingredient Is Said to Rewind the Epigenetic Clock

Mibelle Biochemistry has introduced its new ingredient MonaJuventa Nu, which promotes healthy ageing. According to the company, it is the first botanical extract capable of tackling eight out of the twelve hallmarks of aging, including key mechanisms of epigenetic alteration and telomere attrition. Telomeres are protective barriers located at the ends of human chromosomes and shorten with each cell division. This ultimately leads to cell death, a process known as cell senescence. By reducing the rate of this shortening, telomeres can retain their length and influence thereby the lifespan, the company explains.

Twelve Mechanisms Influence Our Aging

According to Mibelle, scientists have identified twelve key mechanisms that play an important role in the ageing process. They are referred to as the hallmarks of ageing. Treating them reportedly helps to slow down biological or epigenetic ageing. Biological age does not necessarily correspond to a person's actual age. Rather, it corresponds to the age of the cells. It is influenced by factors such as lifestyle, diet, genetics and the environment. It can be determined with the help of various biomarkers.

Turn Back the Clock by Two Years

MonaJuvena Nu is extracted from the scarlet beebalm, a plant native to North America. The leaves are said to be rich in antioxidants, particularly didymin, which is known to boost mitochondrial and endothelial function. According to the company, a daily supplementation of 100 mg MonaJuventa Nu over a three-month period has the ability to rewind the epigenetic clock by nearly two years in human. Additionally, it impedes the shortening of telomeres, thereby having a crucial impact on their length.
