Everyone wants to stay young, healthy and full of life and energy. But even those who keep to the right diet, exercise regularly and keep a healthy lifestyle will age and deteriorate at some rate. Scientific research has discovered that this aging process is largely caused by shortened telomeres. This discovery will empower you to challenge the aging process and reverse telomere shortening with telomerase activation.
Inside the nucleus of a cell, your genes sit on a string of double-stranded molecules of DNA called chromosomes. At the ends of these chromosomes are stretches of DNA called telomeres. Telomeres protect the ends of the chromosomes. They can be envisioned as the plastic tips at the end of shoelaces that keep the shoelaces from unraveling. These telomeres protect your genetic data, make it possible for cells to divide, and hold the secrets as to how you age. Unfortunately, telomeres lose small pieces and shorten each time a cell divides.
These shortened telomeres eventually send signals to the cells that the cells are aging and growing old (cell “senescence”). Subsequently, the cells no longer remain active or divide. An example is found in aging skin cells that give us a withered appearance. These senescent cells impact your immune system and make you susceptible to the diseases of aging such as heart disease, heart failure, diabetes and numerous other infirmities. Many aging related diseases have been linked to shortened telomeres and there is now evidence that the length of telomeres is also linked to a person’s life expectancy.
Clinical trials have shown that patients using telomerase have:
- Improved levels in blood glucose and cholesterol
- Increased T-cell count
- Immune system function improvement
- Increased bone density
- Improvement in skin and hair appearance
- Increased energy and vitality
- Improved vision
- Increased libido and sexual performance
- Improved memory and mental acuity
How well you age and long you live are likely linked to the length of your telomeres.
