In this study, participants were asked to look at photos of 913 twin pairs, side by side, and choose one of the twins who looked younger.
When they looked at the photos, the twins who looked younger were shown to be those with the longest telomeres. The study also shows that these twins also had better health than their older siblings
The study demonstrated a strong predictor of relative health, aging and telemere length.
Perceived age also correlates with age related phenotypes such as physical and cognitive functioning and leucocyte telomere length.
And that’s not the only thing that studies show us on telomeres. Research also shows that every part of your body is affected by telomere shortening. It becomes more difficult to do their work for the heart, brain, kidneys, lungs, pancreas and other organs, when your telomeres shorten.
Perceived age predicts survival among people aged ≥70, even after adjustment for chronological age, sex, and other readily measurable biomarkers of ageing.
We have shown that perceived age based on facial photographs is a robust biomarker of ageing that does not depend on the sex, age, and professional background of the assessors.
All tested indicators of ageing were associated with increased perceived age in the expected direction—for example, decreased physical and cognitive functioning was associated with increased perceived age. Telomere length, measured with two types of enzyme digests, showed the same pattern of association with perceived age.
What's clear is keeping one's telomeres longer is related to better Health, Cognition, Aging and Longevity.
Epitalon and Telemere Length
In 1999, Elisabeth Blackburn was Laureate of the Nobel Prize for discovering the telomere activator enzyme named telomerase. Telomerase rebuilds the end of the telomeres to their original length after each cell division, halting the biological death-clock.
But telomerase is less and less generated in the cells, as years go by, and that’s why telomeres are not restored and become shorter and shorter.
What was discovered is a peptide that will reactivate the production of telomerase in the cells, allowing the reparation of the telomeres, and resulting in the rejuvenation of the body, right down to the genetic cellular level.
This peptide was discovered, tested and patented by the Prof. Vladimir Khavinson and his associate scientists during the past 15 years. It was reserved to a few privileged people in the world until today.
This simple tetrapeptide simulates the effect of a secretion from the pineal gland, that activates the production of telomerase in the cells. Several studies have proven that the length of the telomeres increase after taking this peptide orally, and that the humans taking it live longer than those who don’t take it.
Epitalon is a bioregulator for the endocrine system, especially for the pineal gland, may be the most important gland for human lifespan and good health, and is also the only product prooved to lenghten telomeres in human cells.
Telomeres are the biologic clocks of our body, and lengthening them through production of telomerase is the best way known to extend life and maintain good health till the last days.
Our pineal gland is the controler of our biological clocks, it regulates our day and night cycle with melatonin, and regulates our lifespan with telomerase, the hormone that can lengthen our telomeres.
Today we have a tool to fight aging that is available to purchase!
The studies demon-strating the link between healthy telomeres and anti-aging are numerous, and growing. The effects of using Epitalon remains to be one of the strongest methods in maintaining healthy, longer telomeres.
