What is the Hayflick Limit?In your lifetime, the chromosomes in your cells will divide until they reach what is called Hayflick Limit. When chromosomes are at this limit, they will no longer replicate or divide into new cells because they have exhausted the length of their telomeres, which keep the structure of the chromosomes intact during this process. Without the production of new cells, the body cannot replenish the dead cells, and eventually, organs will begin to fail, which eventually leads to our death. Essentially, the Hayflick Limit is the point at which cells no longer replicate, and the body begins to shut down.
Can we stop this process?After decades of research on telomeres, there is still no simple answer for stopping the Hayflick Limit or manipulating telomerase enzymes to rebuild the ends of our chromosomes. Telos95® may be your best way to not only prevent the slowing down of your telomeres but actually help lengthen them. (More on that ahead!) There are some other ways you can potentially slow down the process of shortening telomeres. Here are five:
- Consuming antioxidant-rich foods like blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries
- Avoiding carcinogens (smoking)
- Avoiding alcoholic beverages
- Reducing the intake of red meats fried in oil
