Increases Telomerase Activity*
Cellular aging happens when a cell dies due to the shortening of its telomeres. Telomeres are the protective tips at the ends of chromosomes that protect our DNA. To support healthy aging, it is essential to maintain telomere length.*
Telomerase is a naturally occurring enzyme that lengthens telomeres and protects them from shortening. Telomere Plus™ has been shown to increase telomerase activity.*
Usage & Notes

Telomere length is what some scientists have used to assess biological age.(1)
Maintaining telomere length can be accomplished by supplementing with a telomerase activator.* The synergistic ingredients in Telomere Plus™ have been shown to activate telomerase and may support increased energy.*
The botanicals in Telomere Plus have been specially formulated to positively influence telomerase:*
Astragalus root (3) may boost energy and provide immune support*
Broccoli seed extract (4) enhances the body’s tolerance to stress.*
Rhodiola extract (5) is often used for cellular protection and to boost enzyme activity.*
Vitamin D3 is known to boost the immune system (6) and has been shown to have a positive correlation with telomere length.*
