"Each night, when I go to sleep, I die. And the next morning, when I wake up, I am reborn"
- Mahatma Gandhi
“Vita nova” means “new life” in Latin. Each day, we are given the gift of seeing ourselves and the world around us as new and vibrant.
But daily transformation is not just something that occurs in our minds and our perceptions. The mysteries of the body, including cell rejuvenation and regeneration, are constantly being illuminated by scientists around the world.
In fact, in the past decade, biologists have discovered that the cells in an adult body are 7 to 10 years old, on average. As cells naturally die off, new ones replace them. And almost every organ in the body has this capacity to regenerate, particularly when given optimal nutrition.
Our liver cells can regenerate in full within about a year. The epidermis, or surface layer of skin, in about 2 weeks. Our taste buds, every 10 days. Heart cells, every 20 years. Red blood cells, 4 months. And the cells on the surface of our lungs, every 2 to 3 weeks. Even the human skeleton regenerates every 10 years. Human brain cells, once thought to never regrow, are now shown to regenerate in the olfactory bulb and hippocampus. There is also hopeful news for human tooth regeneration in the near future.
The nourishing foods we eat, the positive thoughts we think, and the botanical supplements we take have a direct effect on the “rebirth” of our cells. With Vitanova® Nutritional Supplements, every single day holds an opportunity to become your best self. Each day is a renaissance. It’s time to come fully alive.
