The importance of Enzymes

On the ends of the DNA strands there are protective cups that tend to shorten and become fray every time our cells divide and as we age. These protective cups are called “Telomeres”. The length of the “Telomeres” is very important because every time the cells divide, a small part of the Telomeres is used in order for the cells to divide and reproduce without our genetic information to be damaged. Many years of research and clinical data report that the length of the telomeres is connected with the aging process as well as diseases like cancer and Alzheimer’s. Telomere length is regulated by the enzyme telomerase. Telomere length can be influenced from nutritional mechanisms that reflect thei
