Worth knowing

OUR PRODUCTS

We have products that have been developed according to the latest epigenetic findings. For example, with the BLUEZONES Research Group. The interdisciplinary and internationally active research group is an ambitious association of bioscientific companies that work closely with international science centres and universities.

WHAT IS EPIGENETICS

Epigenetics is the control function of our genes, regulates the switching on and off of various gene sequences, is influenced by external factors such as poor nutrition, stress, environmental toxins and shows that gene sequences that are not currently activated (even in old age) can be reactivated.

BLUEZONES

Blue Zones are regions of the world where the population has been shown to live longer.

Through a combination of physical activity, stress reduction and specific phytonutrients, as well as other factors, the inhabitants of these areas have common lifestyle characteristics that contribute to their longevity.

More specifically, the inhabitants of these regions make up a high proportion of centenarians, suffer from only a fraction of the diseases that kill people in other parts of the developed world and enjoy a longer life expectancy in good health.

Based on research findings in the fields of biogerontology, epigenetics and naturopathy, the term “Blue Zones” is also used for areas whose native flora grows under special conditions and can effectively counteract the ageing process. Such mostly high-altitude areas can be found in Nepal, Bhutan, Tibet and China. The Swiss research group Bluezones in collaboration with the Haslberger research group at the University of Vienna are focussing on secondary plant substances from areas that could have a benefit in the field of anti-ageing, neurodegenerative diseases and age-related diseases. As early as 1998, the Swiss group focussed on the eating habits of the population of Yuzurihara, where the inhabitants live to a very old age with the best quality of life. Longevity regions are also analysed over time in China. Another research group from the University of California in collaboration with the University of Rome La Sapienza
analyse Bluezones areas in Italy outside Sardinia over time. The term “BlueZones” in Europe has been protected by System Biologie AG of the Bluezones research group in the areas of active ingredients, food supplements and cosmetics.

We have been collaborating with this research group for many years and it is one of our closest partners.

PRINCIPLES of the BLUEZONES RESEARCH GROUP

Partners and participants follow the principles of a holistic view of human health. Sustainability, social justice, resilience and access to information are key elements of effective, individualised, future-oriented healthcare. The group works with state-of-the-art scientific methods based on the latest scientific and research findings.

OUR GROWING AREAS

Our nutrient-rich main ingredients are grown in Bhutan, Japan, Peru and southern Italy at altitudes of over 2000 metres.

PHYTONUTRIENTS at the highest level. The dietary supplement timeblock® VITAL AGING NUTRITION was developed by the SWISS BLUEZONES® RESEARCH GROUP.

OUR UNIQUE DRYING PROCESS

A gentle drying process has been specially developed to maximise the growth of nutrients while effectively reducing impurities.

The time of harvest is carefully selected – for example, the young leaf tips of the green tea, which are particularly rich in nutrients, are picked over a period of several weeks. We don’t push nature, so the quality is always the best.
