Who Wants to Live Forever?
Everybody agrees that advances in modern medicine have resulted in an increase of life expectancy (vaccines, surgical procedures, drugs, etc.).
Numerous scientific studies have identified essential nutrition to support our body's functions and fend off diseases in the first place.
In the quest to defy ageing, i.e. look younger and stay active longer, people go to great lengths as the myriad of health foods, cosmetics and fitness programmes confirm, yet chronic and age-related diseases are on the increase at an alarming rate, posing new challenges for our families, societies and health care systems.
Nearly everybody has seen examples where living longer without the proper quality of life is not that desirable.
Following the demands of modern day life, we tend not to appreciate the basics until they're gone: Health being right on top of the list.
Stress, an unhealthy diet, lack of exercise and environmental toxins all speed up the gradual deterioration of the body starting right from the cellular level. The problem is that we don't realise this until it is too late, which is generally the time when we start to apply the fixes.
The challenge is how to restore the body to its healthy state, or in other words: How to turn back time.
A Clue from Nature
After a disaster has hit a bee hive, the number of bees is generally larger than before.
As it turns out, the queen bee releases a chemical that rejuvenates older bees, which turn back into workers instead of dying.
If bees have a way of turning back the body clock, do humans have a similar way?
The Body Clock
Looking at a cellular level, scientists have identified that our Telomeres (the protective tips of our chromosomes) are shortening over time. As such, they are the only indicator of our biological age discovered so far.
Further studies have found significant links between short telomeres and diseases like Cancer, Atherosclerosis, Alzheimer's Disease, Osteoarthritis, Skin Aging, Macular Degeneration, AIDS, Progeria, Down's Syndrome, Liver Cirrhosis, Muscular Dystrophy, Diabetes...
While protecting the telomeres from damage and slowing down their natural shortening promises to preserve the current state of health for longer, lengthening telomeres would have the potential to restore and regenerate the body.
The "discovery of how chromosomes are protected by Telomeres and the enzyme Telomerase" earned the scientists the Nobel Prize for Medicine in 2009.
In November 2010, applying this discovery to a study involving prematurely aged mice showed that the signs of ageing can be reversed by lengthening Telomeres with Telomerase (see Nature Article and the below news feature).
From Mice to Humans
Dr Bill Andrews is the world's leading biologist in Telomere Research, discoverer of human Telomerase and CEO of Sierra Sciences LLC, the only company in the world dedicated to the search of finding a Telomerase activator in order to cure ageing.
He currently holds over 35 Telomerase related patents and has developed a unique screening mechanism to identify Telomerase activators.
But despite searching since 1999, a safe synthetic drug that allows human cells to produce or take in Telomerase has not been found. Given the stringent requirements in the development drugs means that an anti-aging drug based on Telomerase activation are decades away.
Harnessing Nature's Gift
John Anderson is a worldwide recognised Master Formulator of groundbreaking and incredibly effective nutritional supplements, who has formulated more than 2300 products for over 600 different companies.
His knowledge of nature's gifts combined with Dr Bill Andrew's unparalleled accomplishments in Telomere Biology have created the breakthrough product that helps maintain youthful function of cells and healthy telomeres to enjoy a longer and healthier life: Product B™, the unique, powerful botanical blend containing vitamins, antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds, which can reduce damage to telomeres and hence provides telomere support.
As a good antioxidant system is associated with good telomere health, we believe that together with a balanced diet and the other Isagenix products, Product B™ provides the very best telomere support available today, giving you the best possible chances of enjoying longevity.
After reading the above, most people have enough information to start taking Product B™.
