Helps Increase Telomerase Activity*
Cellular aging is the process by which a cell becomes old and dies. To understand cellular aging, we must first understand the anatomy of a cell.
Our bodies are made up entirely of different types of cells, each with a different function. Every type of cell contains a center called a nucleus, which contains genetic information called DNA. DNA contains instructions that allow our cells to divide and correctly produce more cells. DNA is found in structures within the nucleus called chromosomes. At the ends of each chromosome, there are protective tips called telomeres, which keep the ends of the chromosome from degradation.
Telomere length has a lot to do with aging and is what some scientists have used to assess biological age.1 Young cells have long telomeres and older cells have short telomeres. This is because every time a cell divides, the telomeres get shorter and shorter. Eventually, they become too short to sustain cell division, and the cell dies. This is cellular aging. Other factors besides aging that may lead to accelerated telomere shortening include stress,2 lifestyle choices and environmental toxins.
Maintaining telomere length is essential to overall health, and can be accomplished by supplementing with a telomerase activator.* Telomerase is a naturally occurring enzyme that influences a cell’s ability to lengthen telomeres and prevent them from shortening. Most cells do not have sufficient levels of this enzyme to maintain telomere length.
The synergistic ingredients in Telomere Plus™ have been shown to activate telomerase and may support increased energy.*
The botanicals in Telomere Plus have been specially formulated to positively influence telomerase. Astragalus root3 has been shown to boost energy and provides immune support, while research shows that broccoli seed extract4 enhances the body’s tolerance to stress.* Rhodiola extract5 is often used for cellular protection and to boost enzyme activity.*
Vitamin D3 is known to boost the immune system6 and has been shown to have a positive correlation with telomere length.*
