Every once in a while, a paradigm shift occurs that can greatly affect our lives. *The science of Telomerase and the ability to lengthen telomeres is a paradigm shift in aging and health.
*It is believed that telomerase activation will play a significant role in the extension of our health spans and the early users will be part of the vanguard that will ultimately change the focus of health care from the treatment of specific diseases to true prevention of the maladies and challenges associated with aging.
In our efforts to stay abreast of current science and offer our clients the most advanced diagnostic testing and the most advanced and scientifically proven products, NBH Lifetime Health is now offering TA-65®MD. This is the first and only telomerase activator tested on humans for safety and efficacy.
What is a Telomere? It is a repetitive segment of DNA at the ends of all chromosomes that helps keep the structure of the chromosome intact and protects the genes that make up our genome.
What is a Telomerase? It is an enzyme that synthesizes the specific DNA sequence (TTAGGG) at telomeres.
Cell Death. Somatic cells comprise the vast majority of all our cells and can normally divide 30 to 50 times before their telomeres become too short and they reach a state of replicative senescence and can no longer divide or function properly. The limited number of times a cell can divide is called the Hayflick Limit. *Science showed that even healthy cells that are growing under ideal conditions stop dividing and die soon thereafter. If this limit cannot be overcome, we are all doomed to die from cellular senescence.
Lengthen telomeres and lengthen your lifespan? Telemerase (TA65) lengthens shortened telomeres.
“Client satisfaction with TA-65 has been so high that most people continue taking TA-65® long after finishing their first year on the product. Although the science of Telomere Biology is a work in progress, an ever increasing number of forward thinking men and women are actively seizing the historical opportunity to do something positive to protect their chromosomes and reverse aging.”
“Telomeres and Ashkenazi Jews (centenarians) . In a study done in 2010, it was discovered that those who were found with longer telomeres tend to live longer. The study also found they were less likely to suffer from type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, cognitive disorders and unhealthy lipid profiles.”
“Short telomeres are associated with diseases such as cardiovascular disease, cancer, degenerative disc disease, Down Syndrome, muscular dystrophy, Alzheimer’s Disease osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.”
