With the launch of Isagenix Product B, we’ve received a few questions from our readers about Telomeres. People want to know what they are, why it’s important to protect them and how you can support their protection. Rather than answer everyone individually, we’ve decided to create a short article which we hope will help.
What are Telomeres, and why are they important?
Our bodies are made up of chromosomes. These are the structures that are essentially long strands of DNA. Our chromosomes are responsible for the way we look, and all the processes that occur within the human body.
In order to stop these chromosomes getting damaged, there is a protective wrapper at each end of them. This is called a Telomere. Think of a Telomere as the plastic bit at the end of a shoelace that stops your shoelace from fraying. In the same way, a Telomere protects the end of the chromosome to prevent damage.
Our cells divide all the time, and every time they do, the Telomere gets shorter and some genetic information may be lost.
Quiz: Is Your Body TOXIC? Take the Test...
Recent scientific discoveries have shown that Telomere health, and specifically their length, could hold the key to aging, because scientists have found that chromosomes may stop duplicating if the Telomere becomes too short.
If we are able to protect our Telomeres and prevent them shortening, it is thought that it may be possible to slow down the aging process.
Telomere research represents a very exciting time for science, and recently 3 Nobel Peace Prizes were awarded for research in this field as scientists race to unlock the very source of aging itself.
How to Protect Telomere Health
Hopefully you now have an understanding of what Telomeres are, and why they are so important. Although aging is inevitable, there are some things we can do to protect Telomere health.
We know that in order to achieve good health, we need to:
- Maintain a healthy weight
- Get regular exercise
- Don’t smoke or drink excessive amounts of alcohol
- Eat a nutrient-rich diet
- Reduce our exposure to toxins
All these factors may have an impact on the effects of aging.
Recently, scientists have been looking at ways to provide the body with additional protection against free radical damage and support Telomere health; beyond leading a healthy diet and lifestyle.
Isagenix Product B has recently been launched, and in our opinion provides the best Telomere support on the market. This groundbreaking product consists of natural ingredients which provide antioxidant and Telomere support. Developed in partnership with Dr Bill Andrews, one of the leading Telomere and Youthful Aging scientists, Isagenix Product B is already becoming a top selling product.
