PIMTforLIFE is an over-the-counter, one-a-day tablet supplement that contains a calculated dose of the enzyme PIMT, explains Cellular Life Research Center, the product's manufacturer. The company claims that the supplement can slow the aging process and prevent age-related diseases.
According to Cellular Life Research Center, the PIMT enzyme rejuvenates damaged cells and protects new cells from abnormal residues in proteins. These residues are the cause of the cellular breakdown leading to the development of age-related diseases, such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and osteoarthritis, explains PRWeb.
There are, however, indications that suggest that the same enzyme not only suppresses cell degeneration but it also accelerates cancer growth, reports the Jakarta Post. Korean scientists, with the support of the National Research Foundation of Korea and the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology, conducted a study in 2012 that showed a correlation between an increased amount of PIMT enzyme and cancer growth acceleration in cancer patients.
