Aging is a mistake! Accelerated aging is the norm in our society. We are getting old before our time. This is a mistake. By taking control of your aging, you can slow and even reverse the aging process. Yes, you got that right. You can reverse aging! To win the aging game, you must keep your biological age younger than your chronological age. But this is not happening in our society where we have measured ten-year-old’s who are biologically 45 years old and thirty-year-olds who are 80. We got it wrong. We need to be measuring eighty-year-olds who are biologically 30.
Historically, our ancestors enjoyed a level of strength and vitality that we can only envy. Their access to the vital nutrients that are missing from the modern diet, the absence of toxins, lots of exercise and sleep, and freedom from stressful lifestyles, the hazards of modern medicine, and electromagnetic pollution allowed them to live in superior health.
One way to measure aging is by measuring the length of telomeres. Telomeres are the caps at the end of each strand of DNA, like the plastic tips at the end of shoelaces. The caps get shorter each time a cell divides. Eventually, the DNA becomes unraveled, and we get sick and die. Shorter telomeres dramatically boost your risk of serious diseases. Fortunately, studies show that if people switch to a good diet and maintain a healthy lifestyle, telomeres can regrow. This means we can control the aging process, become biologically younger, and even reverse the signs and symptoms of aging with more energy, better skin, and less disease.
Certain nutrients are critical to protecting, supporting, and regrowing your telomeres. These include vitamins A, B12, C, D3, K2, vitamin E in the form of tocotrienols, curcumin, zinc, and essential fatty acids. By giving your cells the nutrients they need to do their jobs, you can protect, support and even lengthen your telomeres. Longer telomeres are linked with better health, including less heart disease, dementia and cancer, and with a longer lifespan.
