Anti-aging medicine focuses on the dynamics of aging, in order to better understand how and why we age. As medical scientists gain more insight into the DNA of aging, they are better able to influence the process. Central to all this, is the ability to affect the cells of the body, and create change from the inside out. At the Fountain of Youth Med Spa in Victoria, they utilize nutraceuticals to facilitate anti-aging treatment at the cellular level.
Nutraceuticals – Telomerase Activator (TA)-65
Nutraceuticals are nutritive supplements, and they are used in anti-aging medicine to assist in the prevention of age related disease. In this regard, one of the most advanced nutraceuticals is TA-65, which is designed to protect chromosome ends. This is important, because studies indicate that individuals that age faster tend to have shorter chromosome ends, also known as telomeres. Telomeres prevent the cells from getting damaged, and also contributes to longevity.
Whenever the cells of the body duplicate, the telomere is shortened, and this in turn reduces the life span of the cell. As we age, the speed of the duplication process will result in shorter chromosomes, and this can reduce the production of new cells, leading to an acceleration of the aging process.
TA-65 provides protection for the chromosome ends, thereby giving cells the opportunity to better divide and replicate. When this happens, aging will occur at a much slower rate. In this regard, telomere testing can be done to determine the length of telomeres. When this information is available, medical professionals can come up with a personalized anti-aging plan that utilizes the required nutraceuticals.
The staff at Fountain of Youth Med Spa in Victoria appreciate the importance of nutraceuticals to good health, and include it in their anti-aging program. In particular, there are several health benefits to be derived from TA-65 including improved vision and immune system function, as well as increased cognitive function.
