When PNV™ means longevity...
Purslane, of the family Portulacaceae, is a herbaceous plant with creeping stems common in hot and temperate areas. Too often considered as a pest in gardens, it is nevertheless of great interest in phytotherapy and pharmacology.
Consumed and used in traditional medicine since ancient times for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, it is also considered by Chinese medicine as a valuable ally in the protection of neurons, the fight against brain senescence and cancer.
Biologically, this plant has the ability to survive successive freezes and thaws as well as excessive solar radiation by regulating its programmed cell death mechanism, or apoptosis. Equipped with a system for regulating its tissue homeostasis, this characteristic gives this plant vitality and growth.
The biomimetic regulator PNV™ thus protects the survival of nerve cells, even in the presence of a deleterious agent, by restoring the synthesis of the cytoprotective and anti-inflammatory protein, the Humanine protein.
