Activate Your Anti-Aging System

An amazing discovery–our body has a master switch to enhance our anti-aging ability. It is called AMPK, the acronym of “adenosine monophosphate-activated protein kinase.”

AMPK is found inside every cell and serves as your body’s “master regulating switch.” It determines body fat composition and how long you’ll live.*

When AMPK, “Master metabolic regulator”, is increased, it helps reduce fat storage, increase insulin sensitivity, reduce cholesterol/triglyceride production, and suppress chronic inflammation, which are the factors of lethal diseases of aging. activate your AMPK with green tea!

Also, AMPK induces longevity factors by increasing stress resistance and extending life span in many organisms.

Great news: every cell in our body has AMPK! Here are a few tips to boost AMPK so we can revitalize aging cells:

Exercise – Regular exercise will increase AMPK activity.**
Eat less – AMPK is turned off every time you eat, because our body needs to store the calories. Between meals, about three to four hours after each meal, AMPK turns back on.***
Drink Green Tea – Drink our green tea mid-morning and mid-afternoon between meals to help you enhance this critical cellular enzyme.****

A large part of the reason you are alive at this moment is because of the enzymatic reactions occurring in the trillions of cells in your body.*

As Rikyu, the famous Tea Master of Japan said:
“Taste all the joy of being alive now in this one simple cup of tea!”
