Telomeres, Telomerase, Stem Cells and Anti-Aging

Anti-aging support for telomeres and stem cells.

A little bit of background info.

the Result of Nobel Prize winning research. Essentially research has uncovered what makes people age and something that can slow down the aging process.

Here is an image of telomeres below.

Nobel Prize winning research has uncovered a fundamental cause of natural cellular aging. The answer cannot be seen by the human eye and is something called a telomere . Telomeres are made of repetitive DNA sequences that are the protective caps, or ends, of our chromosomes. Their duty is to protect our DNA. When we are born, our telomeres are long, but as time goes on, they begin to shorten. So short, in fact, that our telomeres fray similar to the ends of a shoelace and a journey called “cellular aging” begins. Every time a cell divides the telomere shortens. When it gets to about one-third the length it was at  conception that part of the body dies. Obviously the whole body dies when critical parts stop working and die.

When our telomeres become too short, our cells can no longer carry out their critical functions. Cells start to self-destruct and eventually die. Scientists call this apoptosis . Cells dying are one thing, but when cells simply stop functioning, known as senescence , they can spew out dangerous free radicals and inflammatory molecules that essentially damage nearby cells.

The enzyme (telomerase) is needed to lengthen our short telomeres.* This adds healthy life to our cells. Thousands of studies show the connection between short telomeres and the natural process of cellular aging.
