How Fast Are You Aging?
Telomere testing: "A window to your cellular age"
What are telomeres?
Telomeres are sections of DNA at the end of each chromosome that serve as a cap to your genetic material. Every time a cell replicates or ages, its telomere will become shorter. Eventually, the telomeres become too short to allow cell replication, the cell stops dividing and will ultimately diet. - a normal biological process. Shorter telomeres imply a shorter life span for a cell.
Spectracell's telomere test can determine the length of a person's telomeres in relation to their age.
What effect does telomere length have on my health and wellness?
Age adjusted telomere length is the best method to date to access biological age using structural analysis of chromosomal change in the telomere. Serial evaluation of telomere length is an indicator of how rapidly one ages relative to a normal population. Therapies directed at slowing the loss of telomere length may slow aging and age-related diseases.
How are the results reported?
Telomere score is calculated on the telomere length on white blood cells (T-lymphocytes). This is the average compared to telomere length on lymphocytes from a sample of the American population in the same age range. The higher the telomere score, the younger the cells.
What are nutritional implications on telomere length and repair?
A diet consisting of foods that can cause inflammation or oxidative stress will shorten telomeres faster. Ex: refined carbs, fast food, processed food, soda, artificial sweeteners, trans fats, saturated fats. A diet full of high antioxidant rich foods which improves oxidative defenses will slow telomere shortening. Avoiding weight gain and obesity can help too.
What lifestyle modifications may help?
Having the ideal body weight and body composition with low body fat. Getting regular aerobic and resistance exercise for at last 1 hour per day, sleeping for at least 8 hours per night, reduced stress and avoiding tobacco.
How can nutritional supplements slow telomere shortening?
Antioxidants can potentially reduce oxidative stress which will improve oxidative defenses, mitochondrial function, reduce inflammation and slow vascular aging. Increasing antioxidant capacity at the cellular level is critical to maintaining telomere length. Evidence suggests that a high quality and balanced multivitamin will also help maintain telomere length, and correcting any vitamin, mineral deficiency is suggested.A single micronutrient deficiency can profoundly affect the rate of telomere shortening.
a cofactor to the powerful antioxidant SOD which affects a cell's potential to resist oxidative stress.
affects the integrity of DNA
an antioxidant which plays a key role in preserving telomere function in endothelial cells by regulating intracellular oxidation homeostasis
effecting telomere length: Magnesium, Selenium, Zinc, B Vitamins, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Vitamin E
