Longevity is the new buzzword. Where we once collectively sought thinness and aesthetic value, we’re now shifting focus and seeking long, productive, impactful lives. Instead of merely fighting wrinkles and various sagging body parts, we want an increased quantity of years and we want them to be high quality. Fortunately for us, it is 2024, and we have at our fingertips all of the tools necessary to achieve this. Rapamycin is quickly becoming synonymous with bio hacking, wellness, and longevity, and we are thrilled to be able to offer its benefits at Lakeside Medspa


Let’s begin by briefly discussing Rapamycin’s history. 

When it was first isolated from a bacterium on Easter Island in 1972, Rapamycin was utilized with organ transplant patients as an immunosuppressant drug. It wasn’t until the early 2000s that researchers found that it significantly increased the lifespans of worms, yeast, flies, and mice. Now, it is disrupting the wellness and bio hacking scenes by being used in new applications to significantly slow the aging process.

How it Works

As discussed in the introduction above, rapamycin is the missing piece bio hackers have been searching for. 

As we age, cellular senescence (cells that stop multiplying but don’t die off when they should), inflammation, and oxidative stress wear on our bodies. These three phenomena are the major contributors to the aging process and the signs of aging that we’d all like to avoid. 

Rapamycin works by inhibiting the mTOR pathway, which is a key regulator of cell growth and proliferation. This leads to a reduction in (you guessed it) the three things that promote aging and the signs of aging–cellular senescence, inflammation, and oxidative stress. 

Coming Soon!

Rapamycin, a unique drug, is a major player in the cutting-edge Optimal Wellness Rejuvenation program, coming soon to Lakeside Medspa! Our team has been hard at work developing a transformative 14 week program to transform your mental health, physical health, and slow the aging process.
