By activating the enzyme telomerase to lengthen telomeres, we can support cellular health and age gracefully.
What are telomeres and why are they important?
Telomeres are the tips at the ends of chromosomes that protect our DNA. As we age, they become shorter, eventually leading to the cell dying. In fact, telomere length is what some scientists have used to assess biological age.1 Therefore, it is critical that if we want to age well, we keep our telomeres as long as possible.
How does Telomere Plus keep our telomeres long?
The naturally-occurring enzyme telomerase lengthens telomeres and keeps them from shortening, and the botanicals in Telomere Plus activate the telomerase in our bodies so that it can give us the whole-body benefits.
On top of that, the ingredients in Telomere Plus—including astragalus root, broccoli seed, rhodiola extract and vitamin D3—give us a whole range of additional benefits, from immune support to enhancing the body’s stress tolerance, cellular protection and boosted enzyme activity.*
