Did you know that as you get older, your telomere has a tendency to shrink? So how long is your telomere? Well, in order to measure it, you will need to look at your DNA, for it is at the end of your DNA and the longer it is, all things being equal, the greater your potential longevity.
Scientists from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences reported that the cells of multivitamin users may have a younger biological age than cells from non-users.
This was based on researchers looking at the length of telomeres, DNA sequences at the end of chromosomes that shorten as cells replicate and age. The researchers concluded that “Regular multivitamin users tend to follow a healthy lifestyle and have a higher intake of micronutrients, which sometimes makes it difficult to interpret epidemiologic observations on multivitamin use,” wrote Dr Chen.
Groundbreaking news like this is far and few between, so a big kudo to the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition published June 2009.
A good high quality well rounded multivitamin rich in antioxidants is essential. I would encourage you to read about Extend Core or Extend Plus, a couple of my patient’s favorite multivitamins.
