Astragalus has for centuries been attributed with immune system boosting properties. Recent research suggests this may be related to how several compounds found in astragalus, including TA-65 and TAT2, help restore the telomeres in immune system cells. This allows them to replicate further to fight chronic viral infections that accelerate the aging of the immune system cells towards senescence. This benefit may not be limited to those suffering from chronic viral infections. Research is showing that non-infectious chronic inflammatory conditions, such as those caused by smoking, may also be tied to immunosenescence that might be ameliorated by telomerase activating compounds.Continue reading
Geron Corporation has discovered a number of telomerase activators that can lengthen the telomeres on the ends of DNA strands that act as a sort of biological aging clock for cellular division. One of these compounds, TA-65, has become widely known as one of Geron’s affiliated companies, TA Sciences, has started selling it and related testing services to the public. TA-65 does seem to do what is claimed, particularly in people with aging immune systems. But there is a lot more involved with fighting aging than keeping your telomeres long.Continue reading
Humans have likely dreamed about immortality for as long as the species has been around. Scientist and author Dr. Aubrey de Grey recently wrote about the advancing anti-aging technologies and why they may work in his book Ending Aging: The Rejuvenation Breakthroughs That Could Reverse Human Aging in Our Lifetime
If you’re not among those of us suffering from the current economic slump, now might be the time to take your shot to achieve immortality, or at least a healthier, longer life. T.A. Sciences has announced the TA-65 telomerase activation supplement derived from the Chinese herb and traditional medicine astragalus. If you’ve got the money (about $25,000 to $30,000 spread over two years) and are willing to undergo the full four segments of the Patton Protocol of pulsed TA-65 administration and consume many other helpful dietary supplements (antioxidants, N-acetylcysteine, alpha lipoic acid, lycopene, lutein, trimethylglycine (betaine), CoQ10, L-Carnosine, EPA, DHA, etc.), the company believes that it can restore your cells to a youthful state.
They are confident enough of its safety that all of their employees age 40 and over receive the Patton Protocol TA-65 treatment.Continue reading
