Picture a strand of your DNA—the double helix of genetic information found in your cells. Did you know that there’s one part of this strand that may hold the key to your cellular health? In fact, this one small part could play a major role in how well you age, and, someday, may even be able to help prevent the spread of cancer. This part is called your telemores.
Telemores are short pieces of DNA that are stuck to the end of a chromosome in order to protect chromosomes from sticking to each other. Some like to compare telemores to the plastic caps on the end of your shoelaces. These telemores protect your genetic information so that nothing is lost during DNA replication.
An enzyme called telomerase helps cells divide and lengthens each cell’s telomeres. In newer cells, this enzyme effectively keeps the telomeres from wearing down too much. But, as cells divide over and again, and telomerase runs out and the telomeres grow shorter.
Researchers are now also linking shorter telomeres to cancer. Many cancers including: pancreatic, bone, lung, kidney, prostate, bladder, head, and neck cancers have shortened telomeres. Eventually, measuring telemores may be a way for scientists to detect cancer. By inhibiting telomerase from getting to cancerous cells and helping them replicate, this may even be a way we can, someday, fight cancer.
Until then, studying our telemores can provide some interesting indications about life spans and aging. Geneticist Richard Cawthon from the University of Utah discovered that shortened telomeres were associated with shorter lives. In fact, his research discovered that among people over the age of 60, those with shorter telomeres were three times more likely to die from heart disease. This same group is eight times more likely to die from infectious disease.
Cawthon’s research also discovered that people with longer telomeres live an average of five years longer than those with shorter telomeres. This study seems to suggest that one’s lifespan could be increased five years by increasing the length of shorter telomeres. But, the rest of his research suggests that higher risk of death is a combination of things including: telomere length, chronological age, gender, glycation, and most of all oxidative stress—damage done to the DNA and the cells from the production of oxidants.
So how do you keep your DNA and your telomeres healthy? One great way is to use a supplement designed to support your telomere, cellular longevity and DNA replication. Using natural ingredients, ProBLEN has designed an affordable, easy-to-use sublingual spray to help you improve your cellular health. This homeopathic supplement is designed to help your body heal itself naturally, at the most basic level.
There’s no reason to surrender to the aging process. Keep your cells healthy and let ProBLEN help you live young and age well with this new Telomere/DNA booster spray.
