Lengthening Telomeres

In 2009, Elizabeth Blackburn, Carol Greider and Harvard geneticist Jack Szostak won the Nobel Prize for developing an enzyme that can actually reverse aging. This enzyme is called telomerase. It determines a cell’s ability to regrow or lengthen telomeres, which are the essence of life.  Aging and disease occurs and accelerates with the loss of telomeres

Telomeres can be compared with the plastic caps at the ends of shoelaces. Their primary function is to protect the integrity of the genome and preserve the cell's function.  Sleeping DNA molecules can replace old cells with healthy cells. At the end of each strand of DNA is a little bit of telomere genetic material. The length of these telomeres determines how old or young your cells act. Long telomeres are good; short are bad.

Each time a cell divides, the telomeres get a little shorter due to the mechanics of cell division. Therefore, your body produces cells that are older, weaker, and more decrepit.  It is programmed old age, and everything that comes with it.  The shorter your telomeres, the "older" your cells and therefore your body acts, regardless of your actual age. By slowing the loss of your telomeres, you may be able to extend your lifespan, feel younger longer and prevent disease in the process.

We will talk about how you can lengthen your telomeres.
