Telomerase Activators Are Not Enough
It’s becoming clearer that telomerase activators alone are not enough to truly maximize Telomere length, reverse aging, and extend human lifespan.
With all the positive buzz coming out lately about telomerase activation, including the high-priced telomerase activator TA-65, other voices in the scientific and medical world are starting to make it clear that “TA,” beneficial as it is, is ‘necessary but not sufficient’ to really deliver the Holy Grail of not just slowing aging, but actually reversing aging and extending human lifespan.
Dr. Joe Mercola, in a recent lead article on Telomeres in his Newsletter, pointed out that Lifestyle actions like [high-intensity?] exercise and stress management can have a major impact on telomere length, and that there are nutritional compounds in addition to telomerase activators than can also play an important role.
Now, an important article about ‘telomerase reactivation’ by two biochemists at Oxford University in the December issue of Rejuvenation Research goes further, stating that the impact of telomerase activators alone on human longevity, is “likely to be small,” and that it will only be “in combination with strategies to reduce [other] known drivers of senescence” that “telomerase activators could increase both health span and life span.”
My sources in the field of Telomere Biology and Age Reversal tell me that the true visionaries in the field are working on new strategies as we speak, which hold promise in the near future.
In the meantime, “The Immortality Edge” continues to spell out a broad spectrum of ways to keep those tips long and healthy! Stay tuned for new developments—you’ll probably hear about them here first!
