Weil Lifestyle, LLC and Juvenon, Inc. Announce Partnership
to Offer Weil Juvenon Healthy Aging Support at DrWeil.com

Dr. Andrew Weil and Dr. Bruce Ames
Support Cellular Health as Key to Healthy Aging

PHOENIX and ORINDA, Calif., June 6, 2006 -- Weil Lifestyle, LLC, the leading authority for information, products and services for those seeking optimum health and wellness through Integrative Medicine, and Juvenon, Inc., a science-based cellular health supplement company committed to the development of products that slow the progressive deterioration associated with cellular aging, today announced a partnership to jointly market and sell Weil Juvenon Healthy Aging Support, now available at DrWeil.com.

Postponing cellular aging may boost energy and brain-cell health, helping consumers to stay strong, vibrant and independent as they age. Weil Juvenon Healthy Aging Support is a patented, unique cell rejuvenating formula, developed by U.S. National Medal of Science award-winning researcher and Juvenon co-founder Bruce Ames, Ph.D. and his team at the University of California, Berkeley. The combination of alpha-lipoic acid and acetyl-L-carnitine can fire up the body's mitochondria, the cellular "power plants" that lose efficiency as we age.

"Maintaining cellular health is a central component of healthy aging, and Juvenon can help," said Andrew Weil, M.D., a world-renowned leader and pioneer in the field of integrative medicine. "Juvenon is a remarkable health supplement that can enhance life during the process of growing older. Dr. Ames' research offers compelling evidence of a significant breakthrough in promoting cellular health, and healthy cells may be the key to a whole range of benefits. I encourage you to try Weil Juvenon Healthy Aging Support as part of your healthy lifestyle."

"Researchers have known for decades that mitochondrial decay greatly contributes to the declining health associated with aging," said Dr. Ames. "Recent scientific studies suggest that the two principal ingredients in the Weil Juvenon Healthy Aging Support transport important fuel to the mitochondria and protect these 'energy factories' from the poisonous by-products that can often result from their work."

About Weil Lifestyle, LLC
