(Dr. Valenzuela, Ph.D.) Now brings
his expertise and insight regarding news and studies on longevity,
resveratrol, Master Genes and
compounds like these used in cutting edge
science. We invite you to ask your doctor about these, and to continue to stay
We hope Dr. V's insight into
the latest studies and information will be helpful, informative, and most interesting
for you and your physician.
would like to introduce myself. My name is Dr. Hector Valenzuela the new
Chief Science Officer at RevGenetics. I am truly happy to join the
RevGenetics family and excited to promote health and well being through
better diet and supplemented with our products at RevGenetics.
For the past 15 years my educational background and research has revolved
around the area of human aging. I earned my Ph.D. at UCLA studying the
age-related changes of the immune system. During my graduate training, I
became fascinated with the complexities of the field, and have remained
professionally involved in this research area, with multiple publications in
the field of immunological aging. In addition to my position at RevGenetics,
I am currently an Assistant Professor in the Biology Department of Whittier
College and also have a visiting Scholar’s Appointment in the Department of
Pathology at UCLA. Besides research on aging, I have also been involved with
teaching multiple aging courses both at UCLA (as a lecturer) and at Whittier
College to both upper and lower division undergraduates.
My contributions to RevGenetics will revolve around my expertise in the
field of aging. We believe in the importance of keeping our customers well
informed about how our body ages and what diet supplements can do for our
health. As the new science officer it is my hope that I can continue
providing information to all our customers about the latest breakthrough in
the scientific literature relating to longevity and our health products.

The Nitro-MX is a new product formulated for 18 to 35 year olds who
are in the prime of their lives and who are naturally healthy, but know that
they will need to maintain their body from early on to help limit the
ravages of aging.
The Nitro-MX provides the
benefit of Micronized Resveratrol's high absorption along with the benefit of our new longer lasting
Resveratrol Precursor Technology that is believed to continue to maintain
Trans-Resveratrol in your body beyond the first-pass metabolism process that
usually destroys normal Trans-Resveratrol. This breakthrough formulation
is not found anywhere else. It is the only 100 mg formulated capsule that
RevGenetics has approved to support great skin condition, good cellular
health and fast recovery. It also contains High Absorption BioCurcumin® (7x Absorption of
Standardized Curcumin) and High Absorption Quercetin, both of which create a
high anti-oxidant synergy with resveratrol according to independent

Some news regarding
Telomere health and its effects
following study (Mech
Ageing Dev. 2010 Apr 23) investigator set out to determine if
over-expressing (upregulating) the telomerase activity while simultaneously
adding an antioxidants treatment would cause vascular endothelial cells (the
cells that cover the inner layers of your heart and blood vessels) to delay
telomere shortening. The two major findings were that telomeres were indeed
longer in length and the epithelial cells were able to grow more than the
untreated control cells. The added ability for epithelial cell growth would
come in handy in delaying the appearance of atherosclerosis in our
Traditionally, the telomere length of a population of cells has been
measured using a technique called a southern blot. Years later another
technique called Flow-FISH was developed that uses a flow cytometer
instrument to measure telomeres length on individual cells with specific
surface proteins. So we have gone from being able to measure telomere length
of cell populations to individual cells. Although this is remarkable it is
still an average telomere length that is being measured since our
chromosomes come in different sizes and lengths. In the following research
article, investigators utilized a new method of telomere length analysis,
Universal STELA, which allows for the researcher to investigate the
relationship between senescence and the load of short telomeres (Aging
Cell. 2010 Mar 13). This new technique will finally shed some light into
questions of whether if takes only one short telomere or a group of short
telomeres within a cell to cause cellular senescence. Stay tune.
Other interesting news
There are many mechanisms that have been discovered that can regulate
telomere shortening. So it is no surprise that links between many genetic
diseases associated with accelerated aging also involve accelerated telomere
shortening by various mechanisms. A group of investigators set out to screen
thousands of individuals and compare those that had shorter telomere lengths
in their leukocytes (i.e. white blood cell) in order to see if they had
anything in common (Proc
Natl Acad Sci U S A. 2010 Apr 26). The investigators appear to have
found a region within the DNA named OBFC1 that appears to be involved
somehow with telomere shortening. Further investigation will be needed but
this finding opens the possibilities for new areas of research that furthers
the field of aging.

The latest in the scientific community
news for Resveratrol:
The effects that resveratrol has on the immune system remains to be
explored. However, it is clear that resveratrol has a very strong
anti-inflammatory response that may be based on inhibiting cell growth or
activation. In the following study, investigators studied resveratrol as a
method of inducing apoptosis (cell death) to treat acute myeloid leukemia
Cancer Res Clin Oncol. 2010 Apr 18.). The investigators demonstrated
that treating myeloid leukemia cells with resveratrol alone could kill the
cancer cells. However, mixing resveratrol with another molecule, ceramides
(that can also kill the cancer cells), gave rise to an exponential
rate of death (rather than just an additive effect) on the leukemic cells.
This study opens the doors to the possibility of using resveratrol in
combination with other chemotherapeutical may help improve cancer treatment
outcome. This study also shows for the first time that resveratrol induces
higher levels of cell death through an increase in ceramide levels within
Several theories have been proposed that attempt to explain how aging
develops. A very popular theory has been the free radical theory of aging.
This theory proposes that by-products of our normal metabolism are the
Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS), that as their name implies can react and
mutate proteins and DNA, and the accumulation of ROS within our cells causes
aging. In a recent study, investigators demonstrated that resveratrol (among
other important findings) was shown to up-regulate the activity of
glutathione peroxidase and superoxide dismutase (SOD) in liver cells (Arch
Pharm Res. 2010 Apr;33(4):601-9). The function of these two enzymes is
to modify and neutralize ROS and thus prevent oxidative stress. These
results suggest that resveratrol could be used to treat liver damage that
leads to fibrosis.
In another related article, investigators review the links between
Alzheimer’s disease with oxidative stress (Expert
Rev Neurother. 2010 May;10(5):729-45). This article reviews many
potential antioxidants to be used against Alzheimer’s disease. Of primary
interest are the roles resveratrol and curcumin play in ameliorating
Finally, more naturally occurring compounds were tested for their ability to
inhibit prostate cancer (Cancer
Res. 2010 Apr 15;70(8):3382-90). Among the compounds tested were
resveratrol, quercetin, and curcumin. Both human prostate cell lines and
predisposed prostate mouse models (called TRAMP) were used to show the
efficacy in preventing tumor development by treating with these compounds.
The results where very promising given the fact that these compounds were
“able to reduce or delay prostate cancer”. In addition, the investigators
were able to show that resveratrol and curcumin worked through similar
signaling pathways that inhibit the Hedgehog pathway in prostate cancer.

What is MasterGene P16 for?
Answer: MasterGene P16 contains an ingredient that has shown to
up-regulate the gene called "P16". In animals, P16 does the following: Mice
expressing higher than normal levels of p16 show earlier cell senescence
while mice (in which p16 activity is blocked) continue to repair damaged
tissue efficiently but run a much higher risk of entering uncontrolled
mitosis (ie. cancer). While non mutated forms of P16 reduces the risk of the
cell entering uncontrolled mitosis in humans, deletions and mutations of p16
are found in a variety of cancers. We believe maintaining healthy gene
function is key to supporting a long life, and this is the first supplement
to consider the importance of this function.
