Professional Formula Developed by Dr. Bruce Ames Under License with Juvenon, Inc.
PITTSBURGH, Pa., August 14, 2012 – Douglas Laboratories®, the trusted choice of thousands of healthcare professionals for superior quality, science-based nutritional supplements for over 50 years, is proud to introduce two exclusive new products: JuvenonTM Pro Cognitive and JuvenonTM Pro Longevity. In a collaboration between Juvenon, Inc. and parent company Atrium Innovations Inc., the agreement provides Douglas Laboratories® rights to develop and commercialize products promoting healthy aging through their network of qualified healthcare professionals.
For the first time, the patented JuvenonTM combination of Acetyl-L-Carnitine and Alpha Lipoic Acid combines with the ingredients in these two professional formulas, JuvenonTM Pro Cognitive and JuvenonTM Pro Longevity, to supply healthcare professionals with the most effective natural options for their patients.
"As we age, specific nutrients become essential for the long-term maintenance of health," explained Dr. Ames, founder of Juvenon, Inc. "These concepts are complex. Douglas Laboratories is the ideal partner for providing healthcare professionals with a fundamental understanding of the role of targeted nutrition therapy in health and disease."
With a combination of ACL, ALA, Biotin, Lutein, Alpha-GPC and a phytonutrient berry blend, JuvenonTM Pro Cognitive helps to support overall cognitive and mitochondrial function. †
JuvenonTM Pro Longevity contains a superior combination of ingredients to support healthy aging. The addition of Maqui berry and Astaxanthin in this formula provides powerful antioxidant activity to promote cellular health and to help repair oxidative stress – a key-contributing factor to the aging process. †
"As a result of our unique partnership with Juvenon, we have truly reaped the rewards of an outstanding collaboration," says Dr. Andrew Halpner, Vice President, Product Development and Technical Services Douglas Laboratories. "We feel that while working closely alongside Juvenon, we are offering healthcare professionals the highest quality supplements available for the promotion of cognitive function and healthy aging." †
