Your body is full of cells that are constantly at work to keep you alive and well. In your early years you need those cells to be working as fast as you are growing. Then you hit a point where you recognize that you are maintaining a regular height, shoe size and ideally, weight. This is a good time to start considering your personal mTOR control to make sure you are aging your best. So...what is mTOR?
mTOR is an enzyme in your body that interprets signals from multiple pathways in your body. This includes nutrients like glucose, growth factors such as insulin, hormones such as leptin and stresses from starvation, DNA damage and more to regulate a wide variety of cellular functions. It translates how your cells handle protein turnover, cell growth, cell survival, metabolism, energy balance and stress responses… all of which impact your health and how you age.
mTOR is essential to your growth as a healthy child, HOWEVER...as an adult you need this cell regulator to slow down....

It is estimated that six in ten adults have a chronic disease in the US!
