You've Probably Never Heard of TA-65… But You'll Definitely Want to Try It
While we can do things like quit smoking, consume less alcohol, drink more water, get the recommended amount of sleep, exercise more, none of these things will actually reverse the aging process.
While we all know how old we are chronologically, most of us don't know our biological age (which can be younger or older, depending on a number of factors such as health, habits and how we treat our bodies). For some, it would come as a shock to see how much older we really are. Those of us who are biologically older often wish we could stop time or find the 'Fountain of Youth' to make us younger. But is there really a way to stop – or even reverse – the aging process? Some studies have shown it may be possible to slow down, stop and even reverse aging and the effects of aging, making us biologically younger.
It has been recently been discovered that part of the aging process involves telomeres – a part of our DNA – which are the structures at the ends of our chromosomes that shorten during cellular division and eventually signal an irreversible state of growth arrest. To delay this aging at the cellular level, human T cells, which are critical in immune control over things like infections and cancer, activate the enzyme telomerase which binds and extends the telomeres.
While we can do things like quit smoking, consume less alcohol, drink more water, get the recommended amount of sleep, and exercise more, none of these things will actually reverse the aging process. So what have studies shown could reduce the aging process? The answer might just be TA-65.
TA-65 is a patented, all-natural, plant-based compound which may help maintain or rebuild damaged telomeres that diminish as people get older. The length of people's telomeres, which are a part of our DNA, can be a good indicator of overall health status; in some studies, shorter telomeres have been associated with cellular aging and dysfunction. TA-65 is a nutritional supplement that can help support immune health and possibly even reverse some of the obvious effects of cellular aging.
The plant base of TA-65 is called Astralagus, which is native to the northern and eastern parts of China. It is herb that has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for thousands of years (often combined with other herbs to strengthen the body against disease). Astralagus has been used to help treat the common cold, respiratory infections, allergies, fibromyalgia, anemia, HIV/AIDs and to strengthen and regulate the immune system. It has also been utilized for chronic fatigue syndrome, kidney disease, diabetes and high blood pressure. It has antibacterial, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
David Wolfe, commonly regarded by his peers as a top authority on natural health, nutrition and 'super foods', states that it is possible to 'de-age' yourself through repair to DNA damage. Elizabeth Blackburn, Jack Szostak and Carol Greider won the Physiology or Medicine Nobel prize in 2009 for their discovery of how chromosomes are protected by telomeres. Wolfe states astralagus was discovered to have a property which can be concentrated and that flips your aging off and genetically de-ages you. Wolfe further claims that astralagus is the first ever discovered anti-aging supplement that is “proven to work” and states that if you take the supplement for just two years, you'll be up to four years younger genetically.
Wolfe also states there are many other supplements that can help aid in the anti-aging process, and recommends Reishi Spore Oil (which is supposed to be 700 times more powerful than Reishi mushrooms), Chaga mushrooms, Astraganda, and Gogi berries to name just a few. Many of these supplements are advertised to detoxify the body, boost energy and immunity without the 'crash' of typical or traditional energy foods, such as proteins and sugars. While astralagus comes in a variety of forms, such as a tincture, capsule, injectable and topical cream, Wolfe tends to utilize it in powdered form along with a number of other powdered supplements mixed with Gynostema tea, which is perhaps “the healthiest tea on earth”, in order to create a 'hot smoothie' drink that not only nourishes you completely but that also helps to feed your immune system and de-age you. With the addition of just a little bit of vanilla, this is one tasty drink!
