Wish you could reverse aging or at the very least, slow it down? Slowing it down may very well be possible now. First, let’s review how we age. Did you know each person is born with 10,000 telomere bases, which make up the telomeres (more on that later) on every cell you have. When you hit 5K, due to cell reproduction, it’s called the Hayflick. That’s the point where the cells can no longer replicate and the death process begins.
When these cells die, it causes what we know as aging. No one has figured out how to reverse aging, but someone has now figured out how to slow it down.
What does this mean? It means you will have normal functioning longer and do more of the things you are able to do when younger, thus improving your quality of life.
The bonus is you will also remain younger looking with less wrinkles. So, you may wish you had taken better care of yourself. Skin and hair improves, but the real magic is in slowing down the shortening of your telomeres (more on those later).
Sound too good to be true?
How to stop aging has been the lifelong question and passion of one man, whose team won a Nobel Prize, and he claims what he has discovered is the real deal. His discovery began with research examining each human cell, which causes aging.
Eyes, skin, hair, bones. Each of our cells replicate at different speeds. Your entire skin will replicate in 120 days, whereas your bones would take about 7 years.
There are parts that age faster because of it. If you have 10K telomere bases, and your skin has to replicate it keeps taking away bases, thus skin would age faster. Creams, even those with retinol do not affect telomeres.
There are currently only two products on the market that affect telomeres. This one is PRODUCT B.
The first huge doubleblind study is being done in Spain and the results will be published this Summer. MODERN SCIENCE will be releasing it.
Dr. Bill Andrews from Sierra Labs in Utah is the man who discoverd this. Under his leadership, Elizabeth Blackburn, Carol Greider, and Jack Szostak were awarded the 2009 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for the discovery of how chromosomes are protected by telomeres and the enzyme telomerase.
The product has been out for a year and a half and so far, all the studies are positive.
“Telomeres are basically at the end of your chromosomes, which contain your DNA. Your chromosomes contain roughly a million components of your DNA. Back in the 1950’s, scientists discoverd 10,000 at the end, which do not contain DNA. These are the bases of the telomeres. If your DNA is analagous to your shoe lace, then the plastic end caps at the end of your shoe lace represent the telomeres at the end of the chromosome. Just as the end cap keeps the shoe lace from fraying, so it is with the telomeres at the end of your chromosome.”
Walukiewicz believes in PRODUCT B so much that he is using it himself, and making it available to his patients.
I asked Walukeiwicz this question, and he said there was one available prior and the cost of it was $3500./month. This caused people to complain it was only affordable to the rich.
So, PRODUCT B is very affordable to the general public. There are no existing plans to make it available at pharmacies or in any store. For now, it is only available to consumers at the places mentioned below.
It’s available from independent Isagenix distributors. Dr. Todd has been taking it for about a month.
People who have taken it have claimed it reversed graying hair, skin wrinkles, memory loss and have even reported improved eyesight. The only side effect is weight loss, which people actually like.
More on telomeres:
- A telomere is a region of repetitive DNA at the end of a chromosome, which protects the end of the chromosome from deterioration.
- Russian theorist Alexei Olovnikov was the first to recognize (1971) the problem of how chromosomes could replicate right to the tip, as such was impossible with replication in a 5′ to 3′ direction. To solve this and to accommodate Leonard Hayflick’s idea of limited somatic cell division, Olovnikov suggested that DNA sequences would be lost in every replicative phase until they reached a critical level, at which point cell division would stop.
- During cell division, enzymes that duplicate the chromosome and its DNA cannot continue their duplication all the way to the end of the chromosome.
- If cells divided without telomeres, they would lose the ends of their chromosomes, and the necessary information they contain. (In 1972, James Watson named this phenomenon the “end replication problem”.)
- The telomeres are disposable buffers blocking the ends of the chromosomes and are consumed during cell division and replenished by an enzyme, the telomerase reverse transcriptase.
- They have been likened to the aglets (tips) on the ends of shoelaces that keep them from fraying.
- In 1975–1977, Blackburn, working as a postdoctoral fellow at Yale University with Joseph Gall, discovered the unusual nature of telomeres, with their simple repeated DNA sequences composing chromosome ends. Their work was published in 1978.
- The telomere shortening mechanism normally limits cells to a fixed number of divisions, and animal studies suggest that this is responsible for aging on the cellular level and sets a limit on lifespans.
- Telomeres protect a cell’s chromosomes from fusing with each other or rearranging—abnormalities which can lead to cancer—and so cells are normally destroyed when their telomeres are consumed. Most cancers are the result of “immortal” cells which have ways of evading this programmed destruction.
- Elizabeth Blackburn, Carol Greider, and Jack Szostak were awarded the 2009 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for the discovery of how chromosomes are protected by telomeres and the enzyme telomerase.

Personally, MedCrunch believes your lifestyle and daily habits determine how well you age. The longer you have maintained these habits, the more youthful you will feel and look at any age. If you’ve been eating right and exercising since you were a kid –you’re far ahead of someone who picks it up later in life. Living a healthy and balanced lifestyle is key –in body, mind and spirit.
That said, if we can stop these telomeres we’re born with from fraying and dying prematurely, why not? I wouldn’t replace healthy habits with a capsule, but it could be a welcome addendum to it. The company fully endorses maintaining a healthy lifestyle while taking it. It’s a discovery that is certainly the closest we’ve ever gotten to reversing cell death which causes aging.
MedCrunch will follow this story and keep you updated on the latest developments. Send us any questions you may have, and we’ll get them answered. ~MD
