3 Best Telomere Vitamins for Healthy Aging | What is Telomere Shortening?

What is Telomere Shortening?

Telomeres are the caps that form ends of human chromosomes to protect the DNA strands from becoming damaged. The word telomere comes from the Greek words telos (end) and meros (part). Throughout our lives, our cells need to replenish by copying themselves (also known as cell division).

The downside of this process is that the telomeres shorten each time a cell copies itself. Eventually, when the telomeres get so short that can’t do their job, cells will age and stop functioning properly. This essentially means that telomeres are our cells’ biological clocks – their length represents our biological age as opposed to our chronological age.

Although the shortening of telomeres can suppress tumors, there is growing evidence that telomere shortening also restricts stem cell function, organ maintenance, and regeneration. During aging and disease, telomere shortening can also increase risk of cancer.


3 Best Telomerase Supplements for Healthy Aging

Telomerase is an enzyme which can play a role in maintaining telomere length. Scientific studies have show that telomerase allows the immortal growth of reproductive cells. The introduction of telomerase to lab dishes with cultured human cells allows aging mortal cells to transform in to immortal cells without turning them into cancer cells.
