When it comes to looking and feeling youthful, creams, lotions, and other topical treatments can certainly help you maintain a younger appearance. However, real anti-aging work needs to be done at the cellular level, as the aging process is ultimately determined by your body’s cell division processes.
Before a cell can divide, it needs to replicate all of the DNA material necessary for ensuring its survival. This is a controlled and highly intricate process, where the double helix needs to be unwound in order for all the genetic material to be copied. This process usually encounters difficulty when it reaches the telomeres, or the end of the chromosomes within the DNA strand.
Telomeres are directly responsible for protecting the end of the DNA strand so that the cell can properly replicate. When we’re young, our telomeres are long; as we get older, however, the telomeres become shorter, making it difficult for healthy cells to divide and replicate. In addition to the aging process, psychological stress can also cause telomeres to shorten, which might explain why people suffering from chronic stress appear much older than they actually are.
Wondering why you’re getting this short lesson in human biology? Simple: the longer your telomeres, the more likely it is that you’ll be able to look and feel younger. That’s why The Fountain of Youth Medical Spa in Victoria, TX we provide telomere testing. We determine the average telomere lengths from a population sample in the same age range as you and then compare it to your telomere lengths.
