So you’ve made your dinner reservations at that fine dining establishment for your anniversary. You want the night to be special, just right. The waiter asks if you would like a bottle of wine, and you ask for a suggestion. Now of course the suggestion has a price tag, but when they open it, pour and your taste it…you understand. Not every expensive bottle is great, but in general the quality ingredients including the time, experience and knowledge that went into making that perfect glass of wine translate into a better tasting glass than say the $5 a bottle at the corner store. This is true for many things, a great cut of meat, a tailored shirt, a 30 year old single malt Scotch Whisky and it is most definitely true for the ingredients and research that went into developing DW Healthy’s Longevity. A little less of one ingredient, a little more of another and it’s a different product. Substandard ingredients and you might as well call it ripple instead of wine. You get the idea. Experience, knowledge, quality; if these matter to you in the supplements you take then Longevity is the product for you.
At DW Healthy, we have absolute confidence in not only the product we produce, but what it can do for you, as will all of our products we extend to you a money back guarantee if you are not 100% satisfied.
A polyphenolic compound found in a number of food sources including grapes, red wine, peanuts and some berries. Longevity is made from red grape seed extracts. Most resveratrol sold in the United States is extracted from the Japanese and Chinese knotweed plant, Polygonum cuspidatum. That’s done because it can be grown year round making it a cheaper source. Japanese knotweed also contains emodin, known to stimulate bowel activity so diarrhea is a possible side effect. Additionally, the resveratrol content in the roots of the Japanese and Chinese knotweed varies from plant to plant depending on environmental factors making consistency is a concern. We utilize only superior ingredients to ensure both Longevity’s quality and potency.
"For the last decade, the science of aging has increasingly focused on sirtuins, a group of genes that are believed to protect many organisms, including mammals, against diseases of aging. Mounting evidence has demonstrated that resveratrol, a compound found in the skin of grapes as well as in peanuts and berries, increases the activity of a specific sirtuin, SIRT1, that protects the body from diseases by revving up the mitochondria, a kind of cellular battery that slowly runs down as we age. By recharging the batteries, SIRT1 can have profound effects on health."
Resevertrol is potentially beneficial for cardiovascular health as it helps reduce inflammation, prevents oxidation of LDL "bad" cholesterol, and makes it difficult for clots that can lead to heart attacks to form.
It is potentially possible that resveratrol helps in the process of preventing cancer since resveratrol is packed with powerful antioxidants that fight off free radicals that cause diseases such as cancer. Research has shown that resveratrol has the ability to deeply penetrate the center of a cell's nucleus, allowing DNA to repair free radical damage that might otherwise contribute to cancerous growth.
Additionally, resveratrol contains anti-inflammatory properties that can prevent certain enzymes from formming that trigger tumor development. Resveratrol also cuts down cell reproduction, which helps the number of cell divisions that could contribute to the progression of cancer cell growth.
Resveratrol is a powerful antioxidant that helps prevent damage caused by free radicals and other oxidative damage. Resveratrol, as an antioxidant, is found to reduce iNOS levels and alleviate lipid peroxidation in neuron cells and , however, increase the production of heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1) to attenuate oxidative damage.
Resveratrol helps prevent insulin resistance in the blood, a condition where the blood becomes less sensitive to the effects of the blood sugar-lowing hormone, which is a precursor to diabetes.
Angiogenesis is the process by which new blood vessels form from existing blood vessels, this is the natural process involved with growth and wound healing. In some cases the angiogenesis process turns out negative, like in macular degeneration where abnormal blood vessels form beneath the retina of the eyes - literally getting in the way of the vision. In cell and animal experiments resveratrol has prevented this abnormal formation of blood vessels.
Because reveratrol increases the blood flow to the brain and improves other functions of the body, those taking reveratrol have a lower risk of strokke which can damage the brain. Increase in blood flow can also help in maintaining mental sharpness during aging.
Note: The following benefits have shown to be effective in animal trials and are still in the process of deducting human efficacy. It is important to note that although these are only strong cases in animals the potential for human benefits are still untapped.
In a study conducted by Dr. Johan Auwerx and collegues, resveratrol-supplemented mice ran twice as far as those not receiving it.
Reveratrol in animal testing has shown to increase testosterone in the blood by 51%.
It is an amino acid that is naturally produced by the body and helps your body produce energy. It is sometimes referred to as ALCAR.
The result of anti-aging takes place in caring for the mitochondria and providing it with the protection from free radicals to preserve its life and energy. Acetyl-L-Carnitine, an amino acid that is fat soluble and highly active in nerves offers superior protection from stress and excitotoxic damage. Also, Acetyl-L-Carnitine along with with CoA work in synergy to create a fuel used by cellular engines (mitochondria) to make energy, giving your cells longevity and in-turn giving you longevity.
Acetyl-L-carnitine is a compound that acts as an intracellular carrier of acetyl groups across inner mitochondrial membranes. It also has been shown to have neuroprotective properties and is has recently been shown to reduce attention deficits in patients with Alzheimer's.
Studies have shown that Acetyl-L-Carnitine can treat fertility by increasing sperm count as well as the movement of sperm.
A 3-month double blind study showed that Acetyl-L-Carnitine reduced penile curvature. In addition, it also reduced pain and slowed the progression of the disease.
Acetyl-l-carnitine improves blood flow in the brain. ALC also acts as a neuro-protector caring for the brain and its functions.
In a recent Italian study, researchers discovered that Acetyl-L-Carnitine can improve liver function and possibly support the microstructure of liver tissue specifically. The study was done on individuals with inflamed fatty livers. The results turned out to be impressive as the participants had lower levels of enzymes, improved blood sugar control, lower levels of insulin resistance, and the Acetyl-L-Carnitine had a protective effect on the liver that prevented toxic build up.

Is an antioxidant, naturally occurring compound that is synthesized in small amounts by plants and animals, including humans. LA also contains an asymmetric carbon, meaning there are two possible optical isomers that are mirror images of each other (R-LA and S-LA). Only the R- isomer is endogenously synthesized and bound to protein: R-LA occurs natural in foods. LA supplements may contain either R-LA or a 50/50 mixture of R-LA and S-LA. DW Healthy uses 100% R-LA. There may be additional differences as well in the bioavailabilty of the two isomers of LA. After oral dosing, peak plasma concentrations of R-LA were found to be 40-50% higher than S-LA, suggesting that R-LA is better absorbed (12,14,16). In rats, R-LA was more effective than S-LA in enhancing insulin-stimulated glucose transport and metabolism in skeletal muscle (50), and R-LA was more effective than LA and S-LA in preventing cataracts (93).

Alpha-lipoic acid seems to help prevent certain kinds of cell damage in the body, and also restores vitamin levels such as vitamin E and vitamin C. There is also evidence that alpha-lipoic acid can improve the function and conduction of neurons in diabetes.
Taking alpha-lipoic acid by mouth or intravenously seems to improve blood sugar levels in people with diabetes. However, there is some inconsistent evidence that shows it does not affect blood sugar.

Alpha-lipoic acid seems to work as an antioxidant, which means that it might provide protection to the brain under conditions of damage or injury. The antioxidant effects might also be helpful in certain liver diseases.
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Combat chronic fatigue syndrome. Because it plays a part in cellular energy production, some nutritionally oriented physicians recommend alpha-lipoic acid for the treatment of chronic fatigue syndrome. While evidence of its effectiveness for this condition is anecdotal, alpha-lipoic acid is a broad-spectrum antioxidant and immune system booster. This means it may be able to play a valuable role in increasing energy and maintaining overall health in chronic fatigue syndrome sufferers.
As an antioxidant, alpha-lipoic acid holds promise for protecting the body against changes in healthy cells that lead to cancer. The evidence for this cancer-preventive effect is still preliminary, however
Protect the liver in cases of hepatitis and other types of liver disease. As an antioxidant, alpha-lipoic acid shields the liver from potentially harmful cell changes and assists it in flushing toxins from the body. This makes it useful in treating such liver disorders as chronic hepatitis and cirrhosis. Alpha-lipoic acid supplements have also proved effective in minimizing liver toxicity following exposure to poisons such as heavy metals (including lead) and toxic industrial chemicals such as carbon tetrachloride.
Alpha-lipoic acid is also used to treat eye-related disorders, such as damage to the retina, cataracts, glaucoma, and an eye disease called Wilson’s disease.
HIV Related Brain Problems
Some people use alpha-lipoic acid for memory loss, chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), HIV/AIDS, cancer, liver disease, diseases of the heart and blood vessels (including a disorder called cardiac autonomic neuropathy) and Lyme disease.
Taurine is an amino acid that supports neurological development and helps regulate the level of water and minerals in the blood. Taurine is also thought to have antioxidant properties. It is found in large amounts in the brain, retina, heart, and blood cells called platelets. Taurine is essential for cardiovascular function, and development and function of skeletal muscle, the retina, and the central nervous system.
Taurine is an important protective substance that helps prevent liver damage from occurring during the performance of the liver’s detoxification function. It also helps prevent the development of liver fibrosis and/or fatty liver that can occur as a common response to chronic liver injury. The researchers identified the protective mechanism as being the inhibition of proliferation of hepatic stellate cells which generate the extracellular matrix that makes up the fibrotic tissue in the damaged liver..

Taurine was found to exhibit diverse biological actions, including protection against ischemia-reperfusion injury, modulation of intracellular calcium concentration, and antioxidant, antiatherogenic and blood pressure-lowering effects. Taurine may be beneficial against ischemia-reperfusion, CHF, and diabetes.

Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10)
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a substance similar to a vitamin. It is found in every cell of the body. Your body makes CoQ10, and your cells use it to produce energy your body needs for cell growth and maintenance. It also functions as an antioxidant, which protects the body from damage caused by harmful molecules. CoQ10 is naturally present in small amounts in a wide variety of foods, but levels are particularly high in organ meats such as heart, liver, and kidney, as well as beef, soy oil, sardines, mackerel, and peanuts.
Coenzymes help enzymes work to digest food and perform other body processes, and they help protect the heart and skeletal muscles.
CoQ10 is available in the United States as a dietary supplement. It is also known as Q10, vitamin Q10, ubiquinone, or ubidecarenone.
Age related Vision loss
A Hungarian study showed significant statistical improvement in visual function, a decrease in drusen (the tiny yellow spots on the macula), and a 23% decrease in their Macular Degeneration, improving vision.
A recent study shows that CoQ10 resulted in improvements in measures of motor function over a fixed period of time.
In a study of 186 men, 46 men (56%) found less penile curvature and pain due to Peyronie's Disease.
Nerve Damage Cause by Diabetes
Since Q10 is capable of helping correct mitochondrial dysfunction, it is a key nutrient to help slow and possibly reverse age-associated changes in nerve health.
Low levels of CoQ10 have been associated with heart failure according to some studies. Early evidence suggest that CoQ10 may be effective for chronic heart failure.
In 1961, scientists saw that people with cancer had little CoQ10 in their blood. They found low CoQ10 blood levels in people with myeloma, lymphoma, and cancers of the breast, lung, prostate, pancreas, colon, kidney, and head and neck. Some research has suggested that CoQ10 helps the immune system and may be useful as a secondary treatment for cancer.
