Most doctors and scientists believe your body wears out because of environmental “wear and tear” — the same way your car gets old and starts having problems.
But you are not a broken-down old car!
And when doctors use this theory to treat you, they’ll only treat the symptoms of aging. They’ll try prescription drugs and dangerous surgeries to try and get a few more “miles” out of your body.
But here’s the thing…
Aging doesn’t happen from external factors. It happens from the inside. Your body was designed to age.
And that’s why REAL anti-aging medicine — what I do in my practice — focuses on attacking aging at its source. Let me explain by telling you about a life-changing study…
They had lost their intelligence. Every one of them had performed poorly on tests, and they all had shrunken brains.
Their hair had changed from glossy and youthful to dull and gray.
Their vision was dimming, with a loss of peripheral vision.
They had become infertile and lost their desire for sexual activity.
Then, one by one, each of those signs of aging was reversed.
Not only did their intelligence come back, but it also reverted to youth. Atrophy of the brain — or shrinkage — reversed.
Their hair became shiny and thick again. Their eyesight returned. And they became sexually active again and fertile.
What caused this remarkable reversal of aging?
That’s the enzyme that helps you rebuild the biological clocks at the end of your DNA known as telomeres.
In a minute, I’ll tell you how you can naturally activate your telomerase right from your own home.
You know that telomeres protect your DNA strands from fraying at the ends. They’re like the plastic tips on the end of a shoelace.
As your cells divide, telomeres wear down. When your telomeres get too short, your cells stop dividing. New cells no longer replace damaged ones. You’re left with older cells that lead to all of the diseases we associate with aging.
In other words, telomeres control the aging process.
Short telomeres dramatically boost your risk of serious diseases. And increasing telomere length helps fight almost all “diseases of aging.”
As a pioneer in telomere science, I’ve been helping my patients protect and lengthen their telomeres for decades.
I do this by helping them activate telomerase naturally.
When you turn telomerase on, your telomeres gradually get longer. Your body starts creating younger cells. And by activating telomerase you can improve and support your heart function, kidney function, memory, and vision. You can recharge your sexual desire, breathe easier, look younger, and feel younger.
In other words, you can reverse the aging process.
Here’s how I help my patients reverse aging at the DNA level – naturally:
Try the first-proven telomerase activator. Astragalus extract is the key ingredient in a powerful telomerase activator called TA-65. This supplement has reversed the aging process in thousands of patients — sometimes slashing 20 years off their biological clocks.1
Astragalus flower I was privileged to become the first doctor in the U.S. licensed to administer TA-65. Since it became commercially available in 2005, not a single adverse side effect has been reported.
Astragalus extract is especially beneficial for protecting the telomeres of immune cells. One study reduced the percentage of immune cells with short telomeres by 50%. That represents an “apparent age reversal of 5 to 20 years” for these cells.2
I recommend taking up to 500 mg of a concentrated astragalus extract three times a day.
Supplement with silymarin. Silymarin is the active ingredient in the herb milk thistle.
Milk thistle has been used for centuries to purify and detoxify the body. But today, we know it’s far more powerful than anyone imagined.
While still very effective for detoxification, silymarin was recently discovered to activate telomerase, the enzyme that rebuilds the telomere.3
Published in the Journal of Cardiovascular Pharmacology, researchers discovered Silymarin:
• Boosts telomerase activity by 300%.
• Reduced the number of disease-causing senescent cells
• Is estimated to be 10 times MORE powerful than the first telomerase activator developed from the astragalus root.
I recommend taking 200 mg daily.
Add in gotu kola. A new study in the journal Molecular Medicine Reports has identified several natural compounds that significantly increase telomerase activation in humans and may lead to longer life and healthy aging.
Researchers wrote that astragalus gave people an immune system that looked like it belonged to someone 20 years younger. Human blood cells treated with a compound containing Centella asiatica extract — from the medicinal plant also known as gotu kola — saw a nearly 9-fold increase in telomerase activity compared with untreated cells.4
When choosing a gotu kola supplement, look for one with more active components. Select one that is standardized to the asiaticosides, or Asiatic acid. I recommend taking 300 mg a day.
