In 2019, it was reported that the life expectancy for the average Singaporean was 81.4 and 85.7 years for men and women respectively, making it among the highest in the world. However, this number does not take into account the quality of life of the elderly, which is more dependent on one’s health span - closely tied to biological age.
With the advancements in science and medicine over the years, ageing research has now entered an unprecedented new era. It has been long observed that the pace of ageing varies from person to person. This highlights a key concept that due to underlying biological mechanisms, biological age at an individual level can be separated from chronological age. The application of biological age as a measure of an individual’s health status offers new perspectives on the extension of both lifespan as well as healthspan. Unlike lifespan, which tabulates the number of years lived, healthspan is defined as the number of healthy years one lives.
Enter Regenosis, a leading geroscience and wellness centre in Singapore seeking to close the gap on fitness and nutrition literacy, such that everyone can self-sufficiently improve their healthspan and live their life to the fullest potential even in old age.
With their RealHealth programme, they go in-depth into understanding an individual’s current health, genetics and lifestyle habits and tailor a lifestyle plan according to their genetic and body composition. This includes close consultations with specialists to educate and advise on how best to adjust your lifestyle and ensure that is done in a sustainable manner such that in the long-term, individuals can continue keeping up even after the programme is over.
One big component of the RealHealth Programme is Rejuvant LifeTabs — a supplement that transforms the way we age by introducing Alpha-Ketogluterate (AKG) into our diet. AKG is a key molecule in the Krebs cycle, which determines the overall rate of the citric acid cycle of an organism and is responsible for most of our body’s energy needs.
