AGING & CELLS
Health from the inside out.
We age because our cells do, too.
Our bodies are all cells. Every part. And as our cells become more fragile with age, we can feel less energized and more imbalanced.
But we can give our cells a fighting chance.
We can get active in slowing the aging process anytime. The earlier the better. And while working out and eating well are important, we can do more. Like what?
The answer has a lot to do with fatty acids.
Certain kinds can actually slow aging-related breakdown in our cells. And C15:0 (aka FA15™, the pure, fatty acid powder in fatty15) is one of them.*†
DIETARY FATTY ACIDS
There are two basic kinds - with a surprise.
Let’s start with the fun part: Eating. When we digest food, our bodies break down fatty acids to be absorbed into the bloodstream. From there, dietary fatty acids do a lot of important work.
There’s two basic kinds, with a surprise.
Unsaturated Fatty Acids
Saturated Fatty Acids
THE HISTORY OF FAT
It wasn’t always a dirty word.
Fat has a bad rap. But why? Let’s go back in time to find out.
The U.S. Government gives dietary advice to 220 million Americans.
THE BIG MESSAGE
Eat less fat. Especially saturated fats, to decrease your risk for heart disease.
THE BIG PROBLEM
The evidence didn’t support the advice. According to a 2015 study, eating less fat was never proven to help heart health.
Millions of Americans make changes.
THE BIG CHANGE
A 4-fold decrease in whole fat milk (and that means fat) intake, in just over 20 years.
THE BIG SWITCH
Skim milk and other low-fat alternatives explode in popularity.
1990 - 2010’s
Millions of kids develop health issues.
THE BIG DEAL
A dramatic rise in childhood obesity, type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
THE BIG IMPACT
Reduced life expectancy. Higher risk for metabolic syndrome, the precursor to diabetes, heart disease and stroke.
2015 - 2019
A saturated fatty acid (C15:0) starts to make waves.
THE BIG NEWS
Surprisingly, higher levels of a saturated fatty acid (C15:0) are associated with better health.
These benefits included healthier body weights, hearts, livers, and metabolism.
2020 and Beyond
We publish 3 years of studies that could change it all.
THE BIG BREAKTHROUGH
C15:0 (aka FA15™) is the first essential fatty acid to be discovered in 90 years, the last being an Omega-3 and 6.*†
THE TINY CAPSULE
We’ve created the world’s first C15:0 supplement, fatty15, with FA15™ the pure, fatty acid powder that replenishes our cells from the inside out.*
SATURATED FATTY ACIDS
All saturated fatty acids are not equal.
Odd or even, they’re named for the number of carbon atoms they carry. And our bodies break them down in different ways.
Saturated Fatty Acid
Example: C16:0 (aka Palmitic Acid)
More of this in your diet is associated with increased risk of:
- Heart disease
- Type 2 diabetes
Saturated Fatty Acid
Example: C15:0 (aka in fatty15)
Higher levels of this has been associated with good health including:*
- Balanced immunity
- Heart health
- Healthy metabolism
- Red blood cell health
- Liver health
FATTY15 & HEALTH
The first essential fatty acid to be discovered in 90 years.†
Evidence supports that C15:0 (aka FA15™) is a critical nutrient our bodies need to sustain good health.*† Here's what it does.
Strengthens cell membranes for an 80% improvement in cellular stability.*†
As a sturdy fatty acid, C15:0 (aka FA15™) gets integrated into our cell membranes and serves as an armor for our cells to keep them healthy and protected. Studies support that C15:0 protects cells against premature breakdown.*
Keeps mitochondria working for a 45% improvement in mitochondrial function.*†
As we age, our mitochondria become weaker, decreasing our cells’ energy output and increasing cellular stress. Studies in human cells demonstrate that C15:0 (aka FA15™) helps to repair mitochondrial function to keep our powerhouses working.*
Advances cellular homeostasis for a >30% improvement in immune homeostasis and 10-20% improvement in metabolic homeostasis.*†
Our immune system and metabolism can become unbalanced over time. Studies in human cell systems support that, by binding to receptors throughout the body that orchestrate metabolism and regulate our immune health, C15:0 (aka FA15TM ) may help keep our cells and bodies balanced.*
ESSENTIAL FATTY ACIDS
What exactly makes them essential?
Essential fatty acids support our cells and balance our immune system.* So they’re essential to our health, but with a big catch: Our bodies don’t make them. That’s why a lot of folks take omega-3s today.
Science supports that both C15:0 (aka FA15™) and omega-3s are essential.*†
Because both support heart, immune and metabolic health.*†
But there are some key differences:
Polyunsaturated essential fatty acid
A few fishy ingredients
Fish or algae oils
(responsible for that famous smell)
Makes our cells flexible
Requires a large dose
(2k-3k mg per day)
Saturated essential fatty acid†
ONE PURE INGREDIENT
FA15™ powder in fatty15
(no taste or smell at all)
Makes our cells STRONG*
Requires a TINY dose
(100 mg per day)
We need both for balance.
But only fatty15™ helps our cells armor up against age.*†
Stronger cell walls mean they’re more resilient. And reduced risk of lipid peroxidation (aka cell damage) means you are more resilient, too.*
