Your Immune System Naturally Declines Over Time
Even though we know they have different needs, we treat immune systems of all ages the same way. What happens to your immune system over time? Some of your cells decline in function but linger in the body and can contribute to inflammation at the cellular level, a bit like trash that needs to be taken out.
This accumulation of senescent cells can be problematic and may contribute to a drop in overall immune function: you become less able to handle stressors like you used to. Recent research has shown that senescent immune cells even have the ability to accelerate systemic aging in mice.*
*To date there is not yet evidence that this animal study can be extrapolated to humans.
Target Immune Aging With Complete Immune Support
We now have access to substances called senolytics that, when administered on an intermittent basis, help to clear these problematic cells, supporting healthy immune function and helping the body respond to immunosenescence. Format incorporates micronutrients—necessary for baseline immune function—and pairs them with powerful senolytic compounds to keep your immune system functioning optimally.See the Science
“Format is unique in combining a daily immunomodulatory cocktail with intermittent, proven senolytic compounds to clear senescent cells. It is a safe way to provide multi-pronged immune support that is not available in any other health supplement.”

Next-Generation Ingredients for Immune Health
Specific micronutrients are essential for daily function and play vital, often synergistic roles in every part of the immune system. Among other micronutrients, Format includes two considered to provide the strongest immune support—vitamin C and zinc.
The formulation of Format’s Senolytic Complex is based on leading institutional research in the field of cellular senescence and was developed under the advisement of an expert member of Elysium Health’s renowned Scientific Advisory Board. This research has shown that senolytics are effective when administered intermittently.

Format 101: The Science
Did You Know You Have Two Types of Immune Systems?
The immune system consists of two main components—the innate and adaptive immune systems. Think of the innate immune system as the first line of defense—it is nonspecific, and responds in the same way to all pathogens. In contrast to the fast-acting innate immune system, the adaptive immune system takes longer (days to weeks) and is highly targeted.
What is Autophagy?
Autophagy is a process where damaged and defective cells are removed and recycled so healthy new ones can be built. This “cellular housekeeping” is crucial for immune health and combating immune aging.
