- For more information about telomeres, see the videos below.
- But take them with a grain of salt! Some of them were made by folks trying to sell a product called TA-65 or similar products. TA-65 in particular has been proven to lengthen telomeres, but is very, very expensive. Taking it is NOT the only way to lengthen or protect your telomeres.
- The main active ingredient in TA-65 is a concentrated extract from a root called astragalus, which has been used as an anti-aging modality an for immune support in China for centuries.
- So a lot of people (including me) just take astragalus hoping to receive at least some of the benefits of TA-65.
