|Excerpt from Chapter One
WHAT IF I WERE TO TELL YOU that we are on the threshold of a
revolution that can reverse the signs of aging? And that with this book in hand, by
following just three simple steps, you can start reaping those benefits today?
When I wrote The
Wrinkle Cure and The
Perricone Prescription, I introduced the Inflammation--Aging
Connection---the concept that inflammation at the cellular level is the single
most powerful cause of the signs of aging. That's not to mention the correlation
between inflammation and such chronic diseases as arthritis, diabetes, Alzheimer's,
cancer, and strokes.
The extensive research and the resulting solutions I introduced still hold
true today, and thousands of people have reported how much better they look and
feel after following my program.
I could have discontinued my research there. But I knew there was more to
learn. I knew that if inflammation was at the root of aging, something deeper must be able
to mediate that inflammation. That "something deeper" turns out to be
the biggest breakthrough in anti-aging medicine in years: protein-like substances in our
bodies called peptides and neuropeptides...
...Peptides and neuropeptides, like many substances in our bodies (think cholesterol)
can work both for and against us. The good news is that by following the program
Perricone Promise, you can dramtically increase the positive effects of
anti-inflammatory peptides and neuropeptides and greatly decrease their negative
As a result, you will experience dramatic changes not only in the
way you look, but also in the way you feel. In just twenty-eight
days, you can erase what seems like ten years from your face and body. With The
Perricone Promise, you'll learn to help reverse the aging process and add many
more youthful years to your life.
The New York Times bestselling author of The Wrinkle Cure presents an astonishing program
to reverse the aging process--inside and out.
Dr. Nicholas Perricone has helped millions of people maintain younger looking
skin. But in order to truly look and feel younger, readers must preserve the entire body,
not just the skin. Now, Dr. Perricone reveals a groundbreaking, 28-day program that
promises to help readers stay young forever. The secret is neuropeptides, the biggest
breakthrough in anti-aging medicine. The book explains the science behind neuropeptides
and the incredible results that can be achieved by regulating and controlling these
chemicals in the body. Dr. Perricone reveals a structured program designed to remove
wrinkles, speed up metabolism and weight loss, and enhance mood, brain function, and
overall health. This three pronged attack on aging includes Dr. Perricones exclusive list
of 10 superfoods to rejuvenate the body, revolutionary nutritional supplements, and
state-of-the-art topical applications. THE PERRICONE PROMISE is the book everyone must
own--no matter what their age.
For women seeking complexion perfection, Dr. Nicholas Perricone is the name to know;
actress Courteney Cox counts herself among his many devotees. In The Perricone Promise,
he claims that his 28-day program will help stop and even reverse the aging process,
making anyone who follows his advice "look and feel ten years younger."
Perricone says the brain and the skin both start out as the same embryonic tissue, so it
follows that any efforts aimed at improving one's complexion will also improve one's
memory and overall sense of well-being.
To this end, he recommends a three-pronged approach: a very specific 28-day
diet; supplements taken morning, noon, and night; and his own line of "topical"
cosmetics, all aimed at boosting the body's levels of "peptides and
neuropeptides." These substances, according to Perricone, are not only the building
blocks of the skin's collagen, but an integral part of the functioning of the immune
system, and may prevent inflammation in the body that's associated with such illnesses as
arthritis and heart disease.
Perricone's diet sensibly includes a "rainbow" of fruits and
vegetables and the liberal use of herbs and spices, and shuns any foods browned or cooked
at high temperatures. But unfortunately, some of the food combinations sound less than
appetizing (typical snack: "1-2 ounces sliced turkey or chicken breast, 3 olives, 3
strawberries, 8 ounces water"). His eponymous supplements and cosmetics are also
pretty pricey, but as far as Perricone's fans are concerned, when it comes to putting the
brakes on the aging process, you get what you pay for. --Erica Jorgensen
