Global Study on Physical Activity Shows Impact on Economy, Workplace Productivity and Longevity

Wednesday, November 6, 2019 - 12:01am

Commissioned by Vitality , the study reveals significant benefits to gross domestic product (GDP), workplace productivity and life expectancy if physical activity levels increase globally.

Key Points: 
  • Commissioned by Vitality , the study reveals significant benefits to gross domestic product (GDP), workplace productivity and life expectancy if physical activity levels increase globally.
  • "This groundbreaking study provides proof of the relationship between physical activity, productivity, mortality and economic growth," said Tal Gilbert, CEO of Vitality USA.
  • It analyzed three scenarios that sketch a global picture of how increased physical activity can benefit not only individuals, but also businesses and global economies.
  • The study uses a novel approach to synthesize the existing evidence on physical activity and mortality risk by taking study design and publication bias into account.

  • When the People's Republic of China was founded in 1949, Chinese farmers had very limited access to doctors and medicine.
  • Besides a longer life span, Chinese people are also living a happy and decent life today.

Ponce De Leon Health Launches Dietary Supplement With At-Home DNA Epigenetic Test, Containing Ingredient Shown To Increase Healthspan And Lifespan

Wednesday, August 28, 2019 - 10:10am

Rejuvant, a dietary supplement containing an ingredient shown to increase lifespan (the length of life) and healthspan (the length of healthy life) in mammalian models, has been a coupled with a simple, non-invasive DNA methylation test to measure biological age versus chronological age.

Key Points: 
  • Rejuvant, a dietary supplement containing an ingredient shown to increase lifespan (the length of life) and healthspan (the length of healthy life) in mammalian models, has been a coupled with a simple, non-invasive DNA methylation test to measure biological age versus chronological age.
  • LifeTabs is a formulation containing LifeAKG, a proprietary form of Calcium Alpha-Ketoglutarate (Ca-AKG), designed to ensure optimal delivery for use by the body's cells.
  • "Many companies looking to enhance and extend healthspan have developed products that simply miss the mark," stated Tom Weldon, CEO of Ponce De Leon Health.

This is ineffective and unsound for a few reasons:

Key Points: 
  • This is ineffective and unsound for a few reasons:
    One, it takes far too long, is expensive and wastes R&D resources.
  • Two, it relies on trial and error drug testing that abuses animals.
  • We, instead, use world-class expertise in machine learning and engineering to produce models that serve as digital animals and -- in the future -- humans.
  • It is VeriSIM Lifes mission to increase human life expectancy through intelligence driven biosystem simulations to truly personalize patient treatment.
