What are telomeres?

Telomeres are parts of our chromosomes that affects how cells age.
Like the plastic tips at the end of shoelaces, telomeres are the caps at the end of each strand of DNA
for protection and help for cells to function properly.

Telomeres shorten each time a cell reproduces, which overtime leaves genetic DNA unprotected
and causes cellular dysfunction and ultimately senescence and cell death.

Telomeres are vital for good health. Slowing or stopping telomere shortening, slows or stops
cellular aging.
