The length of telomeres, or the caps on the ends of chromosomes that protect DNA in cells, is the key to healthy aging. In the simplest terms, “when telomeres get short, bad things happen.” To live a long and healthy life, scientists have offered guidelines for telomere health that include controlling stress, getting optimal nutrition, obtaining quality sleep, minimizing toxin exposure, and finally, bolstering antioxidant defenses against free radicals and reactive oxygen species. “As Continue reading →

Could Eating Less Be Good For Your Telomeres?

Having less on your plate might help preserve your telomeres and keep you feeling younger, hints a mouse study from Spain. The study found that young mice fed fewer calories across most of their lifespan were healthier and had longer telomeres. In addition, the calorie restriction combined with greater levels of telomerase—the enzyme that maintains the length of telomeres—led to increased mouse "health span" and longevity. The team of scientists, led by Maria Blasco, director of the Continue reading →

How Safe Is It to Turn On More Telomerase?

What do eating right, exercising regularly, managing a healthy weight, getting plenty of the "sunshine vitamin" and omega-3 fatty acids, and meditating all have in common? These all can be considered the healthiest of behaviors—each recognized as being completely safe. What else? They all are also associated with increased levels of telomerase, an enzyme that works to protect the DNA in the body’s cells. On the other hand, smoking, poor cholesterol levels, high blood pressure, high blood Continue reading →
