Does Astragalus root lengthen telomeres?
Several extracts from the Astragalus membranaceus root have been studied as possible telomerase activators (22–26). Such an extract is TA-65, a natural product telomerase activator marketed since 2008, that has been found to lengthen telomeres in humans (23).
How can I lengthen my telomeres naturally?
5 ways to encourage telomere lengthening and delay shortening
- Maintain a healthy weight. Research has found obesity as an indicator of shorter telomeres.
- Exercise regularly.
- Manage chronic stress.
- Eat a telomere-protective diet.
- Incorporate supplements.
What’s the difference between telomerase and telomeres?
Telomeres function by preventing chromosomes from losing base pair sequences at their ends. Telomerase, also called telomere terminal transferase, is an enzyme made of protein and RNA subunits that elongates chromosomes by adding TTAGGG sequences to the end of existing chromosomes.
At what age do telomeres shorten?
After the newborn phase, the number of base pairs tends to decline by approximately 20 to 40 per year. For example, by time a person reaches the age of 40, their telomeres could have lost up to 1,600 base pairs.
How are nutritional supplements based on TA-65 compound?
TA-65MD nutritional supplements are the first in a line of products based on the TA-65 compound. TA-65MD nutritional supplements are formulated through a proprietary process to increase the absorption (bioavailability) of the TA-65 compound in the body.
Are there any new studies on TA-65?
The new UCLA study has now been published by our researcher Dr. H. F. Valenzuela (Link). The new 2013 study proves that the product activates telomerase to a statistically significant degree in human cells. However, we do not recommend TA-65 for an increase in longevity but just for its concentrated Astragalus benefits.
What does TA-65 do for your telomeres?
WHAT IS TA-65®? TA-65® is a patented, all natural, plant-based compound which can help maintain or rebuild telomeres, that diminish as people get older. By activating an enzyme called telomerase, the TA-65® compound can help slow down and possibly reverse age and lifestyle-related telomere shortening.
