ProLon®, FASTING MIMICKING DIET™ (FMD™), is a plant-based, 5-day meal program providing 1150 calories on Day 1 and approximately 800 on Days 2-5.
The ProLon® dietary program has been scientifically developed and clinically tested at the University of Southern California Longevity Institute and School of Medicine, one of the leading centers for research on aging and longevity.
ProLon® exploits the ability of the body during periods of low calorie intake to enter a protected mode, remove damaged cells and tissues, and undergo self-repair. Evidence suggests that this process may result in increased longevity and improved health and wellness.
The ProLon® meal program consists of proprietary plant-based soups, bars, drinks, snacks, teas, and supplement formula tablets - all designed to maximize the protective effects related to fasting, while providing micronutrient nourishment (vitamins, minerals and essential dietary components), and minimizing hunger and the burdens of fasting.* The program covers a period of 5 continuous days.
ProLon is intended for use by:
healthy individuals who want to enhance their health and wellbeing and overweight individuals who want to proactively manage their weight in an easy and healthy way.
ProLon has been shown to help maintain healthy levels of systolic blood pressure while reducing abdominal fat and waist circumference*.
*Benefits seen in a clinical trial when ProLon was used once a month for 3 consecutive months.

Due to nature of fasting, there are common complaints associated with it including fatigue, headache, dizziness, and difficulty with concentration during the fasting period. Complaints are mild and tolerated for most people. Although ProLon is designed to mitigate many of these risks of fasting by providing specific macro and micronutrients, because it is still a low calorie diet, we encourage you to discuss with your healthcare provider whether the practice of fasting or the use of fasting mimicking diet is right for you.
