For the first time in the history of medicine, there is potential to effectively reduce, and possibly even eliminate, the adverse effects of the aging and degradation process associated with insufficient telomerase and short telomeres. Used for thousands of years in China, Astragalus's most concentrated form contributes to the longevity of stem cells, extending and improving their ability to repair themselves and create new cells for the whole body - while helping to combat the aging process at the cellular level to fight. In a research that won the Nobel Prize in 2009, a natural product has been discovered
Quote from Prof. Dr. Med. Michael Fossel, 1996: "In 20 years, we will be able to prevent aging and even rejuvenate, and at the same time we will cure most diseases in the same way ......"
This has become a total new era within gerontology. While gerontologists were previously researching anti-aging agents that delay aging, they first discovered a substance in their labs that not only slows aging but can also bring about a real rejuvenation - one completely new orientation within gerontology. The term "re-aging" was born!
How can you understand that?
The entire genetic material is present in humans in the form of 46 chromosomes in the cells. At their ends are so-called telomeres, which protect the chromosomes like plastic caps on shoelaces. They consist of a sequence of DNA repeats, in humans the sequence is TTAGGTTAGG x 1000. They have no genetic function. In cell division there is a risk that genetic information will be lost. Telomeres protect the ends of the chromosomes and make them invulnerable. However, they are shortened even with each cell division a piece. After a certain number of cell divisions, the telomeres are used up. Human cells are therefore limited to about 50 to 60 cell divisions. Then the cell stops dividing, loses its function or even dies. The shortening of the telomeres is therefore involved in the aging process. Researchers have now discovered (Nobel Prize 2009) that an enzyme, telomerase, can restore the original telomere length.
