The chromosomes in our cell nuclei carry a large part of genetic information in the form of DNS. In order to maintain proper cell functioning they must be protected. This task is performed by the so-called telomeres. They are the ends of chromosomes and thus the protective caps of our genetic material.
The shortening of telomeres is primarily caused by external factors such as our lifestyle (stress, lack of exercise etc.) and environmental toxins. A complete loss of the caps prevents the cell from dividing. The cell dies and the aging process begins.
For exploring this relationship between telomere length and lifespan, the US medical team of Professor Elizabeth Blackburn was awarded the Nobel Prize for Medicine in 2009. However, they went one step further and finally made the observation that a special enzyme, the telo-merase, lengthens telomeres before each cell division and thus compensates for telomere loss.
What is TeloActive+ and how does it work?
The enzyme telomerase is indeed present in almost all cells of the body, but in a “switched-off state” and therefore has to be activated in order to be effective.
TeloActive+ ist a newly developed Telomere supplement for the activation of telomerase and the extension of telomeres.
The therapy aims at all the central mechanisms of telomere shortening, e.g., loss of the enzyme telomerase, oxidative stress or inflammation.
There are two formulas available: TeloActive+ Day and TeloActive+ Night.
Besides telomerase activators, both versions contain valuable vitamins and minerals that have been carefully selected to complement each other.
In addition, the vitamins B12, B9 (folic acid) and B6 support cell division and cell growth, the function of the nervous and cardiovascular system as well as the body’s defenses.
Low serotonin levels have very negative effects and are associated with depression, fibromyalgia and insomnia. 5-HTP can reduce sensations of hunger and contribute to weight loss.
The night version contains the anti-aging vitamin E and vitamin D3. The latter is absorbed in the body from sunlight and contributes to maintaining a normal bone and muscle function. Magnesium taurate has a muscle-relaxing effect and helps the body to rest overnight.
The epigenetic effect of these ingredients reduces the risk of inflammation and DNS damage. It protects our cells, stem cells and ultimately our DNS from oxidative stress and supports the natural repair mechanisms of our genes.
