The Science of Anti – Ageing

What is the Ageing Process

An accepted definition of ageing is the process of becoming older, a process that is genetically determined and environmentally modulated. In chronological terms ageing is inexorable and unvarying but our bodies’ responses to the passage of time can differ.

What Determines Biological Ageing?

Biological ageing occurs at a cellular level whereby the protective ends – TELOMERES –  of the string like chromosomes contained in each cell becomes shorter over time with each cell division.

The length of our telomeres is partially determined by heredity and importantly partially by lifestyle.

The good news, however, is that the rate of TELOMERE shortening is not fixed and science has shown that simple changes to our lifestyle can slow, prevent and partially reverse telomere shortening.

Can you Delay or Reverse Ageing?

Ageing in a chronological sense cannot be reversed but recent scientific evidence has shown that the rate of shortening of our telomeres can be slowed and in some cases can be partially reversed.

An enzyme called telomerase adds DNA to the ends of chromosomes to prevent, and in some cases reverse, the shortening process.

We now know that telomerase production is enhanced by a healthy lifestyle & that we can remain youthful well into our advanced years and be protected to some degree from some of the diseases of ageing such as cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular disease & Alzheimer’s.
