Wellness and Longevity Q & A

What is BrainSpan™?

BrainSpan is an assessment tool that offers valuable information about your cellular health by evaluating factors such as your Omega-3 Index which, among other things, helps determine your rate of aging. Research shows that the benefits of higher Omega-3 Index scores may include:

  • Better short-term memory
  • Increased ability to focus and learn
  • Improved mood
  • Less stress and anxiety
  • Up to a 47% lower risk of dementia
  • Decreased risk of inflammation

The BrainSpan assessment requires a “dried spot” blood test, one of those easy pinprick types. Dr. Herrscher uses the detailed report to help develop a nutrition plan, supplement strategy, and other lifestyle changes that contribute to your overall wellness and longevity.

What is the ProLon® 5-Day Fasting Mimicking Diet™?

It turns out that fasting can be good for your health. Unfortunately, it’s often hard to stick to a fast because of the hunger pains and other issues that occur when you stop eating altogether. The ProLon 5-Day Fasting Mimicking Diet (FMD) gives you the health benefits of a fast because the carefully formulated, plant-based meals and snacks you consume don’t register with your body as food.

The plan provides you with a variety of prepackaged soups, tasty nutrition bars, snacks, and herbal teas to prepare and enjoy over five days. Each day’s feast is conveniently boxed, meant to be eaten all in one day and in order: box one on day one, etc.

The ProLon FMD is designed to:

  • Activate stem-cell-based renewal in your body
  • Decrease weight and body fat while preserving lean muscle mass
  • Maintain healthy levels of blood glucose, cholesterol, and blood pressure

Many people report the FMD also improves their energy levels, increases their mental clarity, and even helps soften and improve their skin.

What are the advantages of Metagenics® vitamins and supplements?

He trusts the Metagenics brand to provide a wide variety of carefully researched, high-quality nutritional products that help his patients receive the dietary supplements they need for optimal health.
