The Telomere Maintenance Factor™
What is it?
The Telomere Maintenance Factor is what the body uses to maintain its ability to replicate its cell divisions precisely with no loss of genetic information. As each cell goes through its life cycle, (the cells live their lifespan, replicate, and die) the telomeres on the ends of each chromosome shorten and do not accurately duplicate the original cell. In effect, with each cycle there's a loss of cellular integrity that accelarates the aging process and reduces the capacity to heal.
The NIH scientific article below refers to telomere shortening as "the sole mechanism of aging". Therefore, the Telomere Maintenance Factor can be accurately described primarily as the mechanism in the body that controls and regulates the aging process.
