Scientists have found the ticking biological “clock” that offers clues on aging and longevity: telomeres.

The health of your DNA’s telomeres could mean the difference between living a longer life versus living life to its fullest with a feeling of youthful health and vibrancy.

What is a telomere?

At both ends of every DNA strand in a human cell is a telomere. Telomeres prevent chromosomes from becoming frayed, fusing into rings, or binding with other DNA. Think: the protective cap that protects shoelaces from unraveling.)

What causes telomere shortening?

As part of your body’s normal aging process, each time a cell divides, the telomeres in your DNA get shorter. Add oxidative stress to the mix and telomeres shorten even more rapidly. Oxidative stress is the effect of destructive reactions in your body’s cells caused by too many free radicals or atoms/molecules that have unpaired electrons. In their search for an electron to make them whole, they destroy other cells. Free radicals come from environmental toxins such as pollution, chemicals, drugs and radiation, and even naturally occur in your own body when you exercise. Antioxidants fight free radicals and stem the causes of oxidative stress, but a key combination is needed to reduce the effects of oxidative stress on your telomeres.

What happens when telomeres get short?

In a few words: Bad things happen when telomeres get short. Your body’s cells are unable to divide (or reproduce) and simply die. Eventually, this instability leads to tissue breakdown potentially leading to premature aging.

What it means for you.

Based on numerous human studies showing the association of shortened telomeres with premature aging, it is clear a healthy diet rich in nutrients, along with daily exercise, reduced stress, and antioxidants are your best tools for aggressively fighting the battle against aging.
