Exercise Keeps you YOUNG! – We’ve got proof!

Let’s be introduced to TELOMERES: The DNA on either end of thread like chromosomes.

  • Under a microscope, recent studies have proven cells look much younger in people who exercised regularly. Specifically, investigators measure the length of telomeres. Just as plastic tips on the end of¬†shoelaces keep the laces from fraying, telomeres protect the chromosomes that carry genes during cell division/growth.
  • We now know shortened telomeres is critical to the aging process. Making people more vulnerable to diseases like heart disease, cancer, and diabetes.
  • Telomeres can be thought of as a biological clock. When they get at a critically shortened length, cellular death occurs. Exercise and an active lifestyle promote telomere length.

This is the first time it has been proven at a cellular/molecular level that exercising has an ANTI-AGING effect!
