What is a Telomere?
Telomeres are an essential part of human cells that affect how our cells age.
Telomeres are the caps at the end of each strand of DNA that protect our chromosomes, like the plastic tips at the end of shoelaces.
Without the coating, shoelaces become frayed until they can no longer do their job, just as without telomeres, DNA strands become damaged and our cells can’t do their job.
Telomeres protect the vital information in our DNA.
DNA makes up all of the cells in our body. It is the genetic material that makes us who we are. And every organ in our body (skin, liver, heart, etc.) is made up of cells. So, telomeres are vital to our health.
Our cells replenish by copying themselves. This happens constantly throughout our lives.
Each time a cell divides, it duplicates its DNA, including the base sequence constituting the telomere. But this process of replication is not able to copy the entire telomere sequence, so it becomes progressively shorter and telomeric DNA is gradually lost. When the telomere is very short, the cell can not divide further and it dies, and that is why we age.
But telomeres can also be shortened by stress, smoking, obesity, lack of exercise and a poor diet.
Telomere length represents our biological age as opposed to our chronological age.
Many scientific studies have shown a strong connection between short telomeres and cellular aging.
What is TA 65?
TA-65 is a food supplement containing an extract from Astragalus. TA-65 is a very rare plant-based compound, which can help maintain or rebuild parts of the cells, called telomeres, that diminish as people get older and play a major role in the cellular aging process. This product is the result of an investigation by Telomerase Activation Sciences, used in studies to verify the effects on telomere repair and some aspects of health improvement.
FINITI™ naturally enhances the enzyme (telomerase) needed to lengthen our short telomeres.* This adds healthy life to our cells. Thousands of studies show the connection between short telomeres and the natural process of cellular aging. Of course nothing
is known to stop aging, but healthy cells equal healthy internal systems. Healthy systems equal a healthy body. And a healthy body equals a strong, happy, youthful you.
