NEW!! Barlowe's Herbal Elixirs now offers Telos95® Telomere Support Complex. This powerful anti-aging product contains 100mg of Telos95® and 400mg of a high potency Astragalus Extract with 0.5% Astragalosides verified by HPLC. The Certificates of Analysis (COA) of both ingredients are shown above. Telos95® has been clinically proven to decrease TeloYear (cellular) age (it was associated with an average decrease in “TeloYears” of 7.43 years with a low, one capsule daily dose and 8.52 years with a high, two capsule daily dose over a six month period in fifty participants). Substances in high potency Astragalus Extracts work in a similar manner. Extracts of Astragalus Root are the main ingredients in a recent, quite popular (and quite expensive) Telomere support, anti-aging formulation.
***These vegetable-derived capsules (Vegan, Kosher and Halal certified) are filled on slow speed equipment and only pure, unadulterated herbal extract is contained in the capsules. There are no magnesium stearates, fillers, gelatin, silicates, gluten, corn, wheat, rice, yeast, starch, titanium dioxide, artificial colors, artificial flavors or preservatives. Capsules produced with high speed equipment in herbal and dietary supplement "factories" generally contain several other ingredients, including powdered lubricants called STEARATES (which can greatly diminish an herb or supplement's absorption into the body). Check their labels! Barlowe also bottles his products in glass as he believes chemical vapors can vent from plastic containers and contaminate the contents and that glass is better for the environment.
Telos95® Telomere Support Complex is a cutting-edge, synergistic plant-based product (derived from grape vine, organic olive leaf, and astragalus membranaceus) which can maintain and rebuild telomeres. Telomeres shorten as people age and play a major role in the cellular aging process.
WHAT ARE TELOMERES??? Telomeres are the biological clocks that are ticking from the day we are conceived until the day we die. When cells divide and replicate, we lose telomere length. Cellular reproduction is required on a regular basis to repair damaged tissue and to cope with stress. When telomeres are reduced to approximately five thousand base pairs, our cells become Senescent ( a retirement like state) and die. Telomeres are defined as the protective tail at the end of a chromosome structure that conveys the genetic material information of our cells. Telomeres keep our chromosomes intact and functioning to reproduce cells, the key to healthy aging. Telomere length is very essential for good health. Having long telomeres is an indication of a healthy individual.
HOW DOES AGING AFFECT TELOMERE SHORTENING??? As we age, the body's ability to reproduce the key nutrient Telomerase Enzyme Protein slows down (this enzyme is responsible for the maintenance of telomere health and length). The telomeres then become shorter and shorter until they are too short to have the ability to replicate, causing aging cells or cell death. Much of this damage is caused by free radicals - unstable molecules created when the body uses oxygen. Research shows that short telomeres are directly linked to many serious diseases and help cause premature aging. It is now possible to measure a person's TeloYear Age™. TeloYear Age is the DNA health test of our cellular age. It lets a person track his or her biological (not chronological) age based on his telomere length. A person's telomere length tells him his age in TeloYear which may be older or younger than your real age. Telos95® is validated by human clinical trials to significantly reduce TeloYear cellular age. Certain high potency extracts of Astragalus Membranaceus have been found to have a beneficial effect on telomere length as well.
CLINICAL TRIAL: To assess the full impact of Telos95® on telomere health, a research team recruited 82 adult subjects to supplement with Telos95® daily. Of those 82 participants, 50 individuals completed the study. All participants were assigned to orally take either one or two 95-mg capsules of Telos95® daily for six months. Using a qPCR assay, the researchers were able to determine the relative length of telomeres of each participant prior to and then subsequent to the study. Consumption of Telos95 was associated with an average decrease in “TeloYears” of 7.43 years with the low, one capsule daily dose and 8.52 years with the high, two capsule daily dose.
