I think some of the most interesting research on anti-aging is related to your telomeres.
What are telomeres?
A telomere is a repeating sequence of DNA at the end of a chromosome. Each time a cell replicates and divides, the telomere loses some of its length. Eventually the telomere runs out, and the cell can no longer divide and rejuvenate, triggering a poor state of cell health that contributes to disease risk and eventual cell death.
An intriguing possibility is that we may be able to lengthen telomeres while maintaining their quality, actually turning back the biological clock.
Here is one of my favorite articles Byron wrote on telomeres and anti-aging. Read more
