Anti Aging: The Telomere Shortening Theory

What is a telomere? Sometimes known as the ‘clocks of aging’, telomeres are the protective caps on DNA in each cell. They are known to be one of the major determinants of aging and longevity in higher mammals. Studies have demonstrated a direct correlation between telomere length and life expectancy, stress, DNA damage, and onset of aging-related diseases.

According to an article in The Journals of Gerontology, various genetic and environmental factors such as diet, physical activity, obesity, and stress are known to influence health and longevity as well as telomere dynamics. As telomeres react to positive as well as negative health factors, we should be able to directly influence our telomere metabolism, slow their deterioration, and diminish our aging and perhaps extend our life and health span.

Telomeres are dynamic structures in that they shorten with each cell division. Quite literally, every time a cell divides, the telomere are shortened just a tiny fraction while performing their role in protecting the actual genetic material being replicated. Once a telomere has shortened to the point that it no longer protects the genetic material, the cell dies. The death of cells contributes to aging, and several studies are underway to explore the role telomeres may play in cancer formation.

Oxidative stress has been shown to affect telomere length, so it only follows that powerful antioxidants have a protective effect. Enter Cell Support, our patented formula designed to support the body’s antioxidant production and detoxify the lipids within the cells. These two important functions may slow the telomere degradation process and also improve the health of the cell through lipid detoxification.

Our key ingredients include Beta Carotene, Selenium, N-Acetyl-Cysteine and L-Methionine. Working together with your body’s biochemistry, these ingredients support the production of the powerful antioxidant Glutathione Peroxidase to reduce oxidative stress. Each bottle contains 120 capsules; It can be used as a long term protocol, taking 1 to 2 capsules twice a day. For more rapid detox, a maximum of 2 capsules, three times a day is recommended.
