Biotech Juvenescence’s new product Metabolic Switch is a drink that supports healthy aging and a healthy metabolism by generating a state of ketosis.

It’s been long-anticipated and so popular as to warrant a waiting list, but Metabolic Switch is finally here. Juvenescence Ltd, a life sciences company focused on modifying aging and increasing human health span and longevity, has announced the launch of its first product. Metabolic Switch is an evidence-based, breakthrough C6 Ketone Di-ester drink that, once consumed, puts the consumer in ketosis to promote a healthy metabolism.

Longevity.Technology: When we spoke to Juvenescence’s CEO and co-founder Greg Bailey about Metabolic Switch last year, he was excited about the “geroprotective, neuroprotective and cardioprotective” abilities of the proprietary ketone ester. This year has already seen Juvenescence acquire Portage Pharmaceuticals and its proprietary senolytic, and the launch of the long-awaiting Metabolic Switch will further promote the company ahead of its proposed IPO, which is slated to be later this year.

Ketosis is a metabolic state defined by the presence of a high concentration of ketones in the blood, meaning the body is converting fat to ketones and fuelling itself that way, rather than by burning glucose. Metabolic Switch raises the levels of ketones in the blood, triggering ketosis which can then deliver some of the energy and healthy aging benefits of ketosis without the need to follow a restrictive diet.

Metabolic Switch

“We believe in a world where getting older doesn’t mean slowing down,” said Colin Watts, CEO of JuvLife. “Metabolic Switch switches on your metabolism which over time can sustain energy, protect and promote lean muscle and support healthy blood sugar and immune function – all conditions associated with aging. It is a clinically proven product developed by Juvenescence to help consumers support their healthy aging goals.”

A recently published study in Metabolic Syndrome and Related Disorders showed that only 12.2 percent of Americans have a healthy metabolism [1]. Metabolic health is defined as having ideal levels of blood sugar, triglycerides (a type of fat in the blood), high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, blood pressure and waist circumference, without using medications [1]. Maintaining a healthy and flexible metabolism is essential to achieving an optimal health span and increasing longevity and energy [2].

For those who are looking for a tool to support a healthy metabolism and sustain energy through ketosis but finding it hard to stick to the ketogenic diet, Metabolic Switch can provide some of the energy and healthy aging benefits of ketosis without the need for restrictive dietary changes. Each serving of Metabolic Switch drink is 2.5 fl oz (75 mL) and contains 25g of C6 Ketone Di-ester that will naturally raise the levels of ketones in the blood to quickly generate a state of ketosis that lasts for several hours. Proprietary to Metabolic Switch is C6 Ketone Di-ester, a unique food ingredient that was developed in partnership with The Buck Institute for Research on Aging and tested in both pre-clinical and clinical studies for safety and efficacy.

“As people age, metabolism changes – and for some people that leads to lower energy and weight gain,” said Brianna Stubbs, DPhil, lead translational scientist at The Buck Institute. “Research suggests that enabling a state of ketosis through a variety of methods including the intake of ketone esters, such as those found in Metabolic Switch, can promote a healthy metabolism.”

Metabolic Switch

C6 Ketone Di-ester, the key ingredient in Metabolic Switch received Generally Recognised as Safe (GRAS) status from the FDA following an evaluation of scientific procedures, principles and published and unpublished data by a panel of experts.

Metabolic Switch is available for purchase online at JuvLabs.com in 2, 7 or 28-count amounts; Juvenescence feels Metabolic Switch has a substantial price advantage compared with other ketone esters, which can be as low as $8.00 per dose when bought on subscription. The Juvenescence website also has an educational resource for information about healthy aging and about how maintaining a healthy metabolism can benefit your lifetime.
