Lengthen Your Telomeres – The Biggest Antiaging Breakthrough in the Last Decade
The Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 2009 was awarded jointly to Elizabeth H. Blackburn, Carol W. Greider and Jack W. Szostak “for the discovery of how chromosomes are protected by telomeres and the enzyme telomerase”.
In October 2016 I visited Dr. Grossman’s lab to get telomere lengths tested. A telomerase program I developed was running for several weeks prior to the visit. More later when I get lab tests back.
In 2016, Dr. Grossman recommends a new supplement TeloSC from MaxLife Solution as the best and least expensive option that provides stem cell support as well as telomere enhancement.
When I visited Dr. Grossman’s medical clinic in 2012 extensive testing determined that my biological age was 27 years younger than my calendar age. I asked Dr. Grossman what the biggest breakthrough was in antiaging since my previous visit 6 years earlier. He said TA65, a supplement that costs $500 a bottle.Dr. Al Sears put me on to TA65 years earlier and he has been working on a supplement that costs less than half as much that works a lot better. Lengthening your telomeres could improve your health and performance and give you another 20 years on your life which is long enough to capture the next wave of longevity technology. See Kurzweil and Grossman’s book, Fantastic Voyage: Live Long Enough to Live Forever. But first, let’s look at the Genetic Learning Center at the University of Utah and learn a little bit about why telomeres are so important.
Fluorescence-stained chromosomes (red) on a microscope slide.
Inside the nucleus of a cell, our genes are arranged along twisted, double-stranded molecules of DNA called chromosomes. At the ends of the chromosomes are stretches of DNA called telomeres, which protect our genetic data, make it possible for cells to divide, and hold some secrets to how we age and get cancer.
Telomeres have been compared with the plastic tips on shoelaces, because they keep chromosome ends from fraying and sticking to each other, which would destroy or scramble an organism’s genetic information.
Yet, each time a cell divides, the telomeres get shorter. When they get too short, the cell can no longer divide; it becomes inactive or “senescent” or it dies. This shortening process is associated with aging, cancer, and a higher risk of death. So telomeres also have been compared with a bomb fuse. For more see Learn Genetics …
I’ve been working with Dr. Al Sears new supplement Telo-Essence II for the past couple of months. He claims it is 100 times better than the TA65 which I have been taking for several years. What I can report is that it has a significantly bigger impact on energy level and physical performance.
