Allure’s Longevity Program- Telomere Lengthening
Within the last decade, the scientific and medical community has made major breakthroughs in determining how humans age and then die right down to the cellular level. Telomeres were once considered nothing more than a relatively long strand of “junk” DNA at both ends of every chromosome in the human body, we now know Telomeres hold the very key to aging.
When chromosomes divide and multiply, instead of losing DNA that matters, chromosomes only lose the last little bit of the strand – the tip of the telomere which does not get copied. This is how nature protects the DNA in a chromosome.
Telomere Lengthening in Chromosomes
Today, scientists can measure the age of cells by the length of the telomere- the cells in infants have long telomeres, the cells in adults have shorter telomeres. When telomeres become too short, cells can no longer divide and then the cells either enter a state of paralysis (senescence) or it simply commits suicide (apoptosis) and dies. Telomeres are the biological ‘clocks’ of aging, predetermining our own mortality right from the very beginning as the length of the telomere determines how many times a cell can live and divide itself before it succumbs to one of the fates above.
In 2009, a breakthrough occurred in this field of study, big enough to warrant the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine. The enzyme Telomerase was discovered, allowing modern medicine the ability to stop the shortening of the telomeres as we age. Through the Allure Longevity Program, we can actually lengthen your telomeres allowing cells to increase, thus lengthening life. This Telomerase Activator is available to you through the Allure Longevity Program for telomere lengthening and can be a vital part of your Anti Aging Program.
