Aging is reversible. We now know this. In 2010 a Harvard study was published in a prestigious science journal. Old mice were made young again within a month after being injected with a drug that made their stem cells young again.
Our own stem cells continue to regenerate us over our lifetime. The problem with this is that our stem cells can only divide about 70 times before, they’re no longer able to reproduce themselves. So we gradually are left with fewer and fewer stem cells to rebuild ourselves. This is what causes aging and will eventually kill us all; if we don’t die of something else first.
Another huge problem with having fewer and fewer stem cells over our lifetime is that we become susceptible to all types of diseases that happen as people get older. We usually don’t get heart attacks, strokes, cancer, diabetes, nor autoimmune diseases until we get older. If we had the stem cells of a younger person these diseases wouldn’t be likely.
Every time one of our stem cells divides, the ends of its DNA (telomeres) shorten. So as the stem cell reproduces itself over and over the telomeres become shorter and shorter. When the telomere has become too short, the stem cell will no longer divide and that would end it therefore there will be no more stem cells from that line.
Another problem with short telomeres is that as a stem cell’s telomeres shorten, the stem cell doesn’t work as well.
We are born with a limited number of stem cells. We have enough to repair ourselves very well in our 20s. But as we age, we have fewer and fewer left to repair ourselves, which is why we gradually lose the battle against aging.
But if we have the technology to make an old rat into a young one, this should be as easy to do in any other animal; and that would include humans.
Dr. Bill Andrews is a scientist who has been involved with telomeres for 30 years. He was involved with a discovery regarding telomeres that won the Nobel Prize. He holds over 60 patents regarding the science of telomerase. I doubt there is any other scientist who has had more involvement with the subject of telomeres and telomerase than Dr. Andrews.
Dr. Andrews has not been involved with this field for useless, academic reasons. He has dedicated his whole career to reversing aging; especially his own aging.
Until powerful drugs are available to dramatically reverse aging. He is doing what he can to slow down the process by avoiding crap food (like starch), exercising intensely and taking supplements. The most powerful ones for increasing telomere length he is taking are TA–65 and product B. He invented them and was first to take both.
I asked Dr. Andrews, which of the two was most potent. He told me that by contract. He was not allowed to say. But I believe TA 65 is actually product A and product B is his most recent, more advanced/potent invention. Over the past couple of years since product B has been available. Dr. Anderson has upgraded it several times.
He heads a big lab with many scientists who are constantly looking for molecules that more powerfully stimulate telomerase. So as more potent substances are found, they replace the least potent in product B.
