Ashwagandha, Cats Claw & Astragalus Effect on Telomeres The Youth Trio

Anti aging herbs that repair your DNA, Telomeres and repair your brain cells!

Cat's claw is a very sacred herb to many tribes in the Amazonian rainforest area. Known as an energetic “gate opener,” cat's claw is often used in spells, rituals, and other magick. It is said to release blockages and increase the flow of energy throughout all four levels of the self. Cat's Claw is viewed as as both a potent "plaque and tangle" inhibitor and dis-aggregator is postulated to represent a potential breakthrough for the natural treatment of both normal brain aging and Alzheimer's disease. Brain Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF) is also increased as a key molecule involved in plastic changes related to learning and memory.

BDNF (the acronym for brain-derived neurotrophic factor) is a protein produced in high quantities in the central nervous system. It plays a part in regulating the structure, function, and development of the neurons and synapses that form your brain’s internal communication network. While BDNF levels are highest in childhood when the brain is rapidly developing, it remains a key player in the adult brain. It is responsible for neuroplasticity (your brain’s ability to grow and form new connections) and for your long-term memory Blueberries aid in this immensely. Wild blueberries have a high BDNF-boosting antioxidant content ,dark chocolate, blueberries, and extra-virgin olive oil are all high-polyphenol foods that are proven to increase BDNF and support brain health!

Ashwagandha root extract, tested at various concentrations, led to an enhancement in telomerase activity by as much as 50%! Ashwagandha, aka Indian ginseng, is a flagship rejuvenating and adaptogen Ayurvedic herb, traditionally used as an anti-ageing agent. Ashwagandha root extract showed clinically measurable results relieving stress and inflammation; reducing menopausal symptoms, including osteoporosis; and improving physical fitness, ashwagandha may be just the anti-aging companion you need. Ashwagandha extract also exhibited strong anti-genotoxic effects against H2O2-induced DNA damage in human peripheral blood lymphocytes. Thus, considering the promising achievements in longevity promotion through the lengthening of Telomeres.

A Telomere is a region of DNA sequences at the end of a chromosome. Telomeres protect the ends of chromosomes from becoming frayed or tangled. Each time a cell divides, the telomeres become slightly shorter. Eventually, they become so short that the cell can no longer divide successfully, and the cell dies. The longer the lifespan of Telomeres the longer the life span of an organism like a human being!

Extracts of Astragalus are known to stimulate telomerase activity, thereby compensating telomere shortening. In addition to their antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, immunoregulatory and anticancer effects, extracts of Astragalus spp. have been shown to exert beneficial effects on telomeres. Other key nutrients that may activate telomerase though not as effectively as astragalus root extract, are milk thistle seed extract, Korean ginseng extract, and L-citrulline. Each of these activators also has multitudes of other beneficial effects.

These telomere supporters focus solely on telomerase activation, which is only truly effective in stem cells. To have a noticeable effect on your overall longevity and overall health, a dietary regimen must combine telomerase activators with key vitamins from fresh fruits, nuts, and vegetables such as Vitamin E - from vegetable oils, almonds, pistachio nuts, peanuts, wheat germ, whole grains, turnip greens, and mango. Beta-carotene - carrot, sweet potatoes, spinach, dark leafy green vegetables, melon, cantaloupe, winter squash, and apricots. and other nutrients to help repair DNA and maintain the telomere length already present.
