Your Body’s “Life Clock”: How telomeres determine how long your cells live

2 min read time

Did you know? - That every cell in your body actually has a “clock” that determines how long it will live?

Your body's life clockThis “clock” is called a telomere and it determines how long your cells can:

  • withstand stress
  • resist disease
  • reproduce &
  • stay alive    

Telomeres are DNA caps at the end of the chromosomes in every cell of your body and serve to protect the chromosome (similar to the way a plastic cap at the end of a shoestring protects the shoestring by keeping it from unravelling).

Here’s what scientists have discovered about  telomeres:

 Actual enlarged photo of chromosomes in the nucleus of a cell. The yellow caps at the end of the chromosomes are telomeres.
  • The length of each telomere indicates how long a cell can keep dividing
    and replicating itself before it finally dies
  • Cells with long telomeres live longer than those with short telomeres
  • Cells with short telomeres age faster and have a shorter lifespan

UCLA researchers recently discovered that chronic stress doesn't just lead to high stress hormone (cortisol) levels which decreases your immunity and endangers your health; it shortens your telomeres. 

Short telomeres are associated with a wide range of diseases including
cancer, coronary heart disease, atherosclerosis, osteoporosis, diabetes,
insulin resistance, NIV infection, and accelerated aging.      

If you want to live a long and healthy life, you must protect yourself from life-threatening chronic stress. Stress accelerates the aging process by shortening the telomeres (your “life clock”) in every cell in your body. As your telomeres shorten, your cells age, and the result of aging cells is an aging body and a shorter lifespan.

The good news is that we’ve developed a powerful anti-stress adaptogen herbal supplement that has been specifically developed to address the root causes of our modern health problems which are linked to chronic stress.

And, because men and women have very different hormone profiles, two different forms of this unique, scientifically-formulated herbal supplement were created.

  • Peak Male is specifically tailored to a man’s needs -- not just in protecting him from chronic stress, but also keeping his testosterone at optimum levels which is absolutely critical to a man’s health,  especially as he gets older. 

Go to: Peak Male 

  • EmpowHER is an anti-stress and anti-aging formula designed for women and their unique hormonal issues which can lead to weight gain, menopause discomfort,  PMS, and other hormone-related problems.
