The Science of Telomeres and Anti-Aging with Dr. William H. Andrews
Well to answer that let’s zoom into a human’s hundred trillion cells. Every cell contains a nucleus with genes and chromosomes. if you zoom in further you see that the chromosomes are made up of DNA Molecules that are a hundred million bases long coiled up like a slinky. There are long repetitive sequences of DNA at the end of each of our chromosomes, these sequences are called telomeres. When the cell divides the genetic material inside that cell needs to be copied. This is called DNA replication.
During this process, enzymes that replicate a strand of DNA are unable to continue replicating all the way to the end which causes the loss of some DNA. In the ends if you remember are where the telomeres are.
At birth we have about 10,000 bases but as we age and our cells divide again and again we lose the bases. And at 5000 bases we begin to die of old age. As telomeres get shorter humans begin to experience the general effects of aging: loss of muscle, failing memory, poor eyesight, lack of energy and slower recovery after exercise.
The bottom line is this. When cells divide telomeres shorten and bad things happen when telomeres get short.
Research we completed in 1997 established that humans also have an enzyme called telomerase that can lengthen telomeres. This research was so significant that in 2009 it was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology (or Medicine). I lead a team of scientists pursuing this line of research and we are virtually the only scientists pursuing it.
Our recent collaboration with John Anderson’s thirty years of formulating experience is yielding results beyond anything we have ever experienced. It won’t be surprising to see many companies trying to enter this space and begin marketing products how to support telomeres. But I know from my research not all telomere products are the same.
One company is leading the way with a complete system that not only addresses the causes of aging, but also provides a credible product system to effectively support healthy telomeres. This remarkable research may one day reveal the secret of living a longer healthier life. I am grateful for the opportunity I have had to share it with you.
