How Far Will You Go To Protect Your Dreams?
FOCUSING ON BASICS: You can’t get more basic than protecting your Cells.
Did You Know:
Q: What is the difference between a Telomere and Telomerase?
A: Telomeres are the protective caps on the ends of each of your chromosomes, in each of your body’s cells. Every time your cells divide, your Telomeres get a little shorter, meaning, the ability to adequately protect the cell is reduced. If the Telomeres get too short, the cell’s health is severely compromised, thereby, increasing your symptoms of aging.
Telomerase is your body’s naturally-occurring enzyme that is responsible for increasing the length of the Telomeres with each cell division. When you are young, your Telomerase enzymes are very active. However, as you age, Telomerase activity begins to slow down, subsequently, speeding the rate of developing aging symptoms and disease.
The short answer is that Telomeres are the structures you want Long… and, Telomerase are the enzymes you want Active.

Q: Why do some people seem to age faster than others?
There are two primary causes of a reduction in Telomerase activity and Telomere shortening; Oxidative Stress and Inflammation.
It is primarily due to individual lifestyles that contribute to the apparent rate of aging, as compared to another person.
Fortunately, because lifestyle contributes so heavily to how you age, you have some control.
