Experience the benefits of fasting… but with food.
What is fasting? And why fast? Vitaliv is certainly not advocating a fasting program to everyone, but we do want to share the benefits and help those who are interested.
There is a lot of renewed interest in the health and anti aging benefits to fasting. For centuries, fasting has been part of Christian, Jewish, Hindu Muslim, Buddhist traditions. Several US and international trials on true fasting and water fasting at medical schools have published clinical reductions in diabetes and anti-aging markers. We encourage those interested to refer to clinicals conducted at the Longevity Institute and Diabetes and Obesity Research Institute of the University of Southern California (USC).
The following information is from Dr. Furhman’s Fasting and Eating for Health. Therapeutic fasting allows the body to recover from diseases in a shorter period of time. Fasting can dramatically enhance immune responsiveness. Since improper nutrition can cause can most diseases, fasting can help reverse them. Fasting can assist in detoxification of organs and improvement in organ function at the same time.
The problem for many people is that is may be unreasonable to take 5 to 7 days off from work and truly fast, meaning drink only water. We all have busy lives. Vitaliv offers a solution that can mimic a fasting diet. We offer ProLon® kits that have been shown to have the benefits of a fasting mimicking diet. Because of the side effects, we also realize that even a mimicking fasting diet can be tiring. Again, we still have to function and go to work, and live our lives.
Vitaliv has helped out clients transition through the fasting week with relative ease. Our infusions enable you to maintain energy while you fast, either with ProLon® or a true fast. We are here to support you. Our medical director uses ProLon® with some of her perimenopausal patients. Several other physicians that Vitaliv works with are using ProLon® kits regularly in their practices and seeing impactful results.
What is ProLon®?
ProLon® is a 5-day dietary program that nourishes your body while promoting regenerative and rejuvenating changes, including effects on a wide range of markers that contribute to aging, such as cholesterol, inflammation, and fasting glucose.
ProLon® mitigates the burden and danger of water-only fasting, while responding to the unmet need of having a tasty and convenient, proven and safe dietary program that does not require ongoing lifestyle changes, such as long-term dieting.
Based on extensive scientific research and testing, the ProLon® Fasting Mimicking Diet can have a significant anti-aging impact on the body when taken for just 5 days per month. So, you have the freedom to enjoy your regular diet and lifestyle during the remaining 25 days.
ProLon® meals come in 5 small boxes (one for each day) that include plant-based energy bars, soups, a variety of snacks, drinks, and supplements, all studied and carefully designed to nourish your body and promote positive changes in metabolic markers, cellular rejuvenation, reduced inflammation, and healthy aging.
ProLon ingredients are plant-based and do not contain any additives, preservatives* or chemicals. The daily caloric intake with ProLon is between 770 and 1100 calories from healthy ingredients that maximize nourishment and provide a pleasant eating experience.
*ProLon energy drink contains the natural preservative polylysine.

ProLon® Fasting Kit - $300
After some $26 Million dollars invested in Research and Development, ProLon currently contains 58 tasty and easy-to-use food items (in the form of soups, bars, crackers, etc.) and supplements. With ProLon, you save over 5 days the cost of buying your ordinary foods and drinks. You can decide to buy or subscribe for three ProLons and do each once per month in order to replicate the results of the clinical trial and reach optimal levels of regeneration, fat driven weight loss, and metabolic health. Otherwise some consume ProLon every other month or 2, 3 or 4 months, mainly to maintain healthy weight and optimize the aging process.
15 years of extensive preclinical and clinical studies sponsored by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and conducted at the Longevity Institute and Diabetes and Obesity Research Institute of the University of Southern California (USC) resulted in the development of the first FMD™ (ProLon®) which stimulates:
- High level of protection and stress resistance in cells
- Removal of damaged cells and tissues
- Self repair of cells resulting in regeneration and rejuvenation within your body
Randomized controlled trial of 100 subjects, 71 completed 3 cycles of the ProLon® either in a randomized phase (N=39) or after being crossed over from a control diet group to the FMD group (N=32). Control subjects continued their normal diet. ProLon®participants consumed the fasting mimicking diet (FMD) for 5 consecutive days per month for 3 months. Measurements were performed prior to the diet (Before) and during the recovery period after the 3rd cycle (After).
