I don’t get much of a chance these days to bring out all that molecular biology know-how and training that I’ve accumulated throughout university and my early career in biotechnology. That’s why; I relish the opportunity to present Telomeres and Isagenix Product B Review. The science of aging is extremely popular, and there is so much information available on how to manage your aging, and what causes aging that it can be quite confusing to take in all at once.

I’m a spirited 32 year old at the moment, and I’m really enjoying how I am today, but I wouldn’t mind a teeny weeny bit of preventative care as I move into the next decade of my life. So, I’m no expert in expensive lotions and potions, and I’m yet to enter the foray of cosmetic surgery for a lift or tuck, but I am with some confidence able to report the latest in science and technology, and what’s behind the science of longevity with the theory of Telomeres.
There has been a lot of theories on why we age, and lots of time invested by scientists that have been working on research to extend our age. The year the twins were born in 2009, 3 scientists Elizabeth Blackburn (Born in Australia!), Carol Greider and Jack Szostak http://www.nobelprize.org/nobel_prizes/medicine/laureates/2009/press.html ) were awarded a Nobel Prize for discovering that Telomeres and the enzyme that forms them, telomerase protects the DNA from degradation. In summary if the telomeres are shortened, cells age and Product B is a product to help prevent this.
What is a Telomere?
Telemeres are best described as a cap at the end of every strand of DNA. The function of Telomeres is to prevent chromosomes from becoming frayed, or another way to think about is the plastic tips at the end of your shoelace that keeps them from unraveling.
What was so important to be awarded a Nobel Prize was that these scientists make the correlation between the length of your DNA’s telomeres to health and a longer life. When your telomeres get too short your body’s cells are no longer able to divide, which leads to tissue breakdown and premature aging.
A disease of premature aging for people born with short Telomeres is Progeria. Preventing Telomere shortening could cure these kids whom have a life expectancy of 20 years and have suffered from all the ailments of accelerating aging.
As Dr. Bill Andrews says in a fantastic seminar titled, “Curing Aging through Telomere Biology”. His summary slide is bad things happen when telomeres get short.
Ok, so for the first time humans have an aging clock (just like the fertility clock where the older you get the less fertile you are, the shorter the Telomere the less life expectancy you have).
There are two ways your telomeres shorten:
There is one lab in the USA that does do Telomeres tests, but if you go, what lifestyle change can you make? If you were presented with a report saying your Telomeres are indicative of 10 or more years older, what would do? It is not a predictive tool because a bus tomorrow could hit you, but it is a sure sign of stress test.
- Basal level Telomere shortening. This is the gradual shortening of your lifetime from conception.
- Accelerated Telomere shortening due to environmental factors.
It is widely accepted that a Healthy lifestyle will assist in preventing the accelerated Telomere shortening as we can lose weight, we can meditate, exercise and quit smoking. All these things can help reduce the shortening of our Telomeres. Accelerated Telomere shortening is the reason why some of us age more than others.
But the sobering truth is there is absolutely nothing we can do about the basal level of reduction– our Telomeres are still going to get short. This part of the study is what scientists like Dr. Bill Andrews are committed to a life career in studying. Only recently available in Australia, this is one product Isagenix has responded and developed a product for. The new third generation of Product B is a proprietary, scientifically advanced formula of antioxidants for protecting Telomeres. With a theoretical lifespan, a human cannot live beyond 125 years, and Isagenix is in the race to reverse human aging.
Isagenix products assist with both two ways telomeres shorten.
You can buy Isagenix products at wholesale price or retail by contacting me.
- Isagenix Product B to facilitate the Basal level shortening. Isagenix Product B reviews has a complex blend of 28 botanical and minerals offering the best Telomere support on the market,
- Isagenix nutritional cleansing program to stop the accelerated Telomeres shorting due to environmental factors.
