When we are conceived we have 15000 bases in our telomeres, when we are born we have 10,000 teleomeres when we get down to 5000 bases in our telomeres we seem to get a lot of cell disfunction and disease.
All kinds of things accelerate telomere shortening. As of yet we can lengthen telomeres.
Sierra Sciences is trying to turn back on telomerase. (telomerase inducers)
The best substance that they have found would make enough to get 16% of the way to immortal cells.
With funding they think in one year they can get to 100% telomerase effectiveness.
And in three years they would get to human tests.
There are currently three commercially available telomerase inducers.
Bill Andrews says they work and he uses them. (although not at total effectiveness)
ProductV from Isogenics
T -Activator 100 (from telomere biosciences)
Bill also likes ultramarathons because running seems to help telomere length.
