Valter Longo, Ph.D.

Inventor: Fasting Mimicking Diet

Director of the Longevity Institute at the University of Southern California and The Program on Longevity and Cancer at IFOM in Milan designed the FMD.

  • He is considered the global leader in nutrition and aging.
  • His research team took on the journey to uncover an intervention that slows/reverses biological aging and delays the onset of age-related diseases.
  • Because it is risky nowadays to fast on water only, doctor Longo developed a natural plant-based meal program that imitates fasting while still feeding the body.

The ProLon Fasting Mimicking Formulation is only healthcare technology to be granted a patent for promoting tissue/organ regeneration, Longevity, and Healthspan by the USPTO.
