The Ancient Secret of Longevity and Beauty

What did the Egyptian queen Cleopatra and the only Chinese empress Wu Zetian have in common?

Humanity has been pursuing the secret of a long and happy life since the beginning of the time. There are much knowledge and wisdom on this subject, but of all of this knowledge, it is the Taoists’ longevity and immortality practices that really stand out as extraordinary.

Taoism is an ancient Chinese philosophy initiated by Lao Zi some 2500 to 3000 years ago. Taoism is a way of life, which involved living in union with nature, and Taoist masters are famous for having achieved longevity (and even immortality) by using herbs and minerals, as well as by studying special energy practices. For example, Master Peng Zu is recorded to have lived for 880 years, while Master Zhang San Feng lived for more than 400 years. A number of immortal Taoists are also recorded through history and include Dongbing Liu and Xiangu He. The stories about these amazing people have been cherished for thousands of years.

Using herbs and other powerful natural products to achieve longevity is one of the most important components of Taoist practice. Taoist scholars have accumulated a great deal of wisdom and have many secrets in this regard. Of all of the herbs and minerals that Taoists use to achieve longevity, pearl stands out as particularly potent. In the ancient Taoist book Bao Pu Zi by Gehong Jin (AD 281–341) it is said that taking pearl can prolong life and even help to make people immortal.

Pearl has always been highly coveted among the Chinese nobility. In ancient China, emperors would designate tens of thousands of people in certain parts of the country as pearl collectors. The Chinese imperial family ingested pearl powder and applied it externally so that they could enjoy the pearl’s many benefits. When taken internally, they believed pearl powder could help:

  1. Calm the mind, reduce stress and anxiety, and improve mental acuity and focus

  2. Enhance memory

  3. Promote emotional balance

  4. Drive away evil spirits

  5. Cleanse the liver

  6. Improve eyesight

  7. Prevent eye degeneration and disease

  8. Nourish the kidney and heart

  9. Nourish and strengthen bone

  10. White and strengthen teeth

  11. Nourish and strengthen muscle and speed up muscle recovery

  12. Rejuvenate skin and heal skin problems

  13. Stop children from crying at night due to fear or disturbances

  14. Heal stomach illness

  15. Help people live longer and healthier lives

They also used pearl powder as an ingredient in the following products:

  • Facial cream to give younger looking skin

  • Toothpaste and tooth powder for whiter and stronger teeth

  • Eye drops to promote eye health and better vision

  • Liniment for wounds, sores, burns, or other skin problems

Wu Ze Tian (AD 625–705), the only woman in Chinese history to ever attain the title of Emperor, consumed pearl powder and also applied pearl beauty cream to her skin. When she ascended to the throne at the age of 65, her skin was as radiant as that of a young woman. Wu Ze Tian lived for another fifteen years, reaching the age of 80 at a time when life expectancy was only 40–60 years.

But it wasn’t only in China that the ancients used pearl powder. It is recorded that in ancient Egypt, Cleopatra drank wine vinegar with a pearl in it to enhance her beauty and health. Native Americans considered pearl to have magical healing powers, while archaeologists have also found that Mayan “dentists” used pearl as a tooth filling that grew seamlessly into the existing teeth!

Is There a Substance That Can Reverse Aging?

Is There a Substance That Can Reverse Aging?

Searching for a unique substance to reverse aging has been a human pursuit since the start of civilization. Since ancient times, pearl has been recognized by many ancient civilizations – such as the Egyptian, Mayan, Indian, and Chinese – as an antiaging substance. Ancient Taoist books recorded pearl as a coveted anti-aging substance as well, noting that it can help people achieve longevity and youthful beauty. Does this long-standing fascination with pearl really have any substance, or is it just a fairy tale? Is there really a material that can reverse aging? Modern French scientists have found that pearl can stimulate the regeneration of osteoblasts (bone building cells) and fibroblasts (builder cells for connective tissue). Our cellular regeneration, especially bone and skin regeneration, quickly goes downhill with age. These research studies seem to provide the proof that pearl can indeed help rejuvenate our body. Furthermore, Chinese scientists have done several animal studies on the antiaging effects of pearl. These scientists have found that pearl can indeed prolong the lifespan of animals. In several research models, Chinese scientists found that pearl powder can prolong the life span of mice, fruit flies and silk worms by 20% to 57%.

If we were to apply the life-extending phenomena as observed in the silkworm, mice, and fruit flies to humans, it would indicate that our average lifespan could increase from 80 years old to at least 96 years old, even to 120 years old. If digesting pearl powder internally can indeed help prolong people’s and animals’ lives, what is the anti aging substance in the pearl? Over many years, scientists have been discovering more and more unique proteins in the pearl, some of them have never been found anywhere else on earth. These scientists have found that many of these proteins actually play an important role in the creation of pearl: they regulate calcium uptake, transportation, and secretion in the process of pearl formation. Research seems to support that some of these proteins in pearl act like signal proteins in the human body. Signal proteins are important messengers that send out biological signals to our cells, tissues, and organs. It seems that pearl signal proteins can send out messages to our body to regenerate our bones, skin, collagen, and other connective tissues, as well as enhance skin tissue repair and increase existing bone density. The pearl signal protein may well be the anti-aging substance we have long been searching for. But how can pearl signal protein play such an important role in our body? As it turns out, there is a profound reason behind it. In a study published in July 2004, Dr. S. Li and his colleagues at the Institute of Marine Biotechnology of Tsinghua University in Beijing isolated part of the DNA of pearl that can reproduce a complete fulllength of one of the pearl signal proteins. To their amazement, they found that the pearl signal protein-DNA encodes a protein which shares high similarity with our own human calcium binding proteins. Their research has been further confirmed by more studies all over the world. The findings indicate that we actually share a deep-rooted kinship, a real connection, and evolutionary bond at the DNA level, with signal proteins and the luminous, magnificent pearl. Pearl signal proteins appear to play a crucial role in pearl’s legendary benefits for promoting youthful beauty, health, and longevity. Is this the ultimate anti-aging substance we have been looking for since the birth of civilization? At the very least, the discovery of pearl signal proteins provides evidence that the ultimate anti-aging substance may exist. Stay tuned, as the ongoing research sheds more light on the subject

Your Skin and Aging

Your Skin and Aging

According to the Center for Disease Control, the “over 65” population of America will double to 71 million – roughly one in five Americans – in just twenty years. One of the hurdles this community will have to deal with is increasingly “older” looking skin. While aging is an inevitable part of life, not everyone’s body ages in the same way. This rule is never truer than with skin. Living a healthy lifestyle, avoiding the sun, and not smoking are all good ways to slow down the skin-aging process. However, scientists and pearl powder punters alike are discovering that pearl could also help in maintaining healthy, youthful skin. As we age, our bodies stop producing two of the most important components of healthy dermis: collagen and fibroblasts. Collagen is a protein that supports our skin cells. Fibroblasts build the connecting fibers holding our skin together. Both are responsible for the firm, healthy look we associate with youth. However, as we age, both collagen and fibroblasts regenerate slower. University of Michigan finds that people in their 80’s have four times more broken collagen than people in their 20’s. Collagen becomes fragmented, and fibroblasts collapse. The overall effect? Wrinkles and thinning. Dr. Voorhees, Chair of the Dermatology Department at the University of Michigan, informs us that this collagen and fibroblast breakdown is a “vicious cycle”. “You have to interrupt it, or aging skin is just going downhill,” he warns. However, throwing a cog in that vicious circle may be easier than we think! The ancient Chinese empress Wu Ze Tian certainly believed that pearls contributed to younger looking skin: and she lived some thirty years longer than the contemporaneous population. Modern scientists agree. French scientists discovered that pearls can speed up the regeneration of collagen and fibroblasts. This indicates that pearl powder could be the interruption in the cell degeneration cycle Dr. Voohrees was talking about. Maintaining younger looking skin is not solely about beauty, however. It is also about health. Older skin tears and bruises more easily than its youthful alternative, making injury more likely and recovery slower. Dr. Xinzhong Zhao, a researcher at the 3rd Adjunct hospital of Hebei Medical School and Hebei Traditional Chinese Medicine School found that pearl powder could help patients recover from injury more quickly and more efficiently. Dr. Huang at Guanxi Medical School found that pearl’s anti-bacterial properties help heal faster as well. Anti-aging skin regeneration helpers like Pearlcium are not only about maintaining one’s youthful glow, but also about protecting oneself from injury. Our skin is the largest organ in our body, and as we age it becomes increasingly important to treat it with the extra care. Pearl powder could be one way to throw a cog, or should we say pearl, in the “vicious cycle” of skin aging.

Ancient Secret of the Pearl

UNLOCKING THE SECRET OF SIGNAL PROTEINS  in Pearls

Research indicates that some proteins in pearl powder act just like”signal proteins” in the human body.  Signal proteins are the ones that serve as messengers, sending out signals that control cellular growth.

As a unique messenger substance, signal proteins from pearl powder may stimulate anti-aging activity, including new skin and bone growth.

The potential application of this to accelerate recovery for people in all types of sports is exciting.  As the over-60 generation continues to grow, there has been a sizable increase in the amount of osteoporosis, joint pain and arthritis, and a decline in the overall quality of health.

Studies show that many falls experienced by the elderly are caused by a hip or knee spontaneously fracturing just before the fall occurs.

Signal proteins can support and encourage skin and tissue repair, help you to maintain a youthful skin tone and secure vital skeletal health through promoting and increasing solid bone density.

Apparently, the signal proteins in pearl powder play a crucial role in its legendary benefits for promoting health, beauty, and longevity
