Years of research.
Millions in funding.
One breakthrough product.
Rejuvant® is the breakthrough product of Ponce de Leon Health, founded by Tom Weldon, inventor, entrepreneur, and investor who has launched 12 companies in the medical device and healthcare sector and holds 30 patents for medical devices.
In 2014, Tom turned his attention to the anti-aging sector, and entered into a research agreement with the Buck Institute for Research on Aging, the foremost aging research institute in the world. The goal of the research: develop a safe, affordable, science-backed, non-drug product that offers people the opportunity to live healthier and longer lives. The result of this sponsored research with the Buck Institute is Rejuvant, the first life-enhancing product from Ponce de Leon Health.
Live better, longer, and enjoy life more.
At Ponce De Leon Health, our vision is simple: enable people to add more healthy years to their lifespan. We saw that thanks to medical interventions, people were living longer. But that didn’t necessarily mean they were living better. We thought, “What if we could increase the years people stay healthy and active?” Our quest to find answers to this question drives us every single day.
Our Mission: Turn anti-aging research into solutions that defy the aging process.
We transform breakthroughs coming out of research labs that study the science of aging into safe, effective products that extend healthspan, so people can lead healthier, more active, productive lives.
