The telomere theory of aging
The Chinese have for centuries valued the root of the astralagus herb. In recent years an extract of astralagus, TA65®, has been identified as a possible way to potentially protect your DNA.
The DNA theory of aging is that the chromosomes that make up your DNA could be damaged when the protective strands at each end possibly become frayed and shortened. The shortening of these telomeres strands is thought to possibly reduce your life expectancy.
TA65 has been developed as a possible means to stop telomeres from shortening by activating the telomerase enzyme that may repair these strands.
Why is telomerase reactivation important?
Telomerase reactivation was shown to be of significance during research using mice. The mice had a deficiency in the enzyme but when telomerase was reactivated, the telomeres strands in the DNA lengthened and the mice went on to live longer lives than expected.
Views about the significance of telomeres and longevity vary, but TA65® may reactivate telomerase in a way that the astralagus herb on its own does not.
However significant the repair to telomeres is, other research has shown it may also help your immune system and possibly blood pressure, and potentially the elasticity of your skin.
The telomere theory of aging needs more research.

You may feel an increase in energy levels, clearer vision, a heightened sex drive and may get a reduction in grey hair. However the time period and effects of the supplement will differ for each person.
4. Where can I have my telomeres measured?
There are a number of labs across the world that will perform this service for a nominal fee. Please contact your local physician for more information.
5. What happens if I miss my regular dosage?
Nothing happens immediately, but don't double up, just continue to take the same amount of ta65. The bottle will simply last a bit longer. However it is not recommended to make a habit of frequently missing regular dosing.
