TA – 65 Telomere Therapy
TA-65 is a patented, all natural, plant-based compound which can help maintain or rebuild telomeres, that diminish as people get older.
The length of a person's telomeres is a good indicator of his or her overall health status; short telomeres have been associated with cellular aging and dysfunction.1,2 The real biological age of a person's body may be more or less than their chronological age. Telomere length is considered a key marker in measuring a person's biological age as opposed to their chronological age.
For a body to stay healthy, it is important to maintain telomere length. Having short telomeres can accelerate the natural aging process on a cellular level. By activating an enzyme called telomerase, the TA-65 compound can help slow down and possibly reverse age and lifestyle-related telomere shortening.
Telomerase is composed of a protein called TERT and several telomere-associated proteins. Telomerase protects against telomere shortening, a common and potentially causative feature of aging. Telomere length in leukocytes is a putative, if unreliable, biomarker of biological age, with accelerated shortening observed with chronic disease states like diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and arthritis, and slowed shortening by regular exercise. It is suggested that telomerase serves an anti-apoptotic role, where
TERT acts by interrupting apoptotic signaling which results in mitochondrial dysfunction and caspase activation.
Benefits of Telomere Therapy
- Aging and related health concerns: A lot of clinical evidence suggests benefits to glucose tolerance and cardiovascular health, though effects are not conclusively attributed to TA-65. It successfully protects against cellular senescence by protecting telomere length during aging.
Counteracting the telomere shrinking process is the enzyme, telomerase, that uniquely holds the key to delaying or even reversing the cellular aging process.
- Safety: Several clinical trials have tested TA-65 and reported no adverse effects. It has been granted GRAS status as a medical food, and the patients have shown no negative effects after going through TA-65 treatment.
