Antioxidants are important to prevent free radicals from shortening your telomeres and ensure that you will stay active and live longer.
The people who looked younger had longer telomeres.
In a nutshell, the shorter your telomeres (the caps at the ends of your chromosomes that keep the strands of your DNA from fraying), the faster you age. Cells with shorter telomeres begin to slow down and act old. Eventually, the damage makes you age more quickly. So you look older, feel older, and are more vulnerable to age-related disease and death.
Keep your telomeres from getting shorter and you can actually be healthier as you get older. You’ll get a younger immune system, make your cells act younger and be able to keep doing what you love – even things you’ve never done before – no matter your biological age.
Fortunately, there are a lot of ways to maintain your telomere length.
One way is to activate telomerase. Telomerase is an enzyme found in all of your cells that tells your telomeres to rebuild themselves. Once activated, telomerase can actually make your cells – and your body – younger.
You may have seen the news about the recent study at the University of California-Davis. Researchers looked at people who were at a wellness retreat and found that after three months, people doing meditation training had 33 percent higher telomerase activity in their white blood cells than those who weren’t meditating.
The problem is they were meditating for six hours a day. Do you know anyone who has that kind of time? Nobody does…
But you can boost your telomerase activity without spending six hours sitting still … with omega-3.
A new study in the Journal of the American Medical Association followed about 600 people over a full five years. They found that daily supplements of omega-3 significantly increased telomerase activity.
How to Prevent Telomerase Shortening
1) A new study in the Journal of the American Medical Association followed about 600 people over a full five years. They found that daily supplements of omega-3 significantly increased telomerase activity.
The best sources for supplementing with omega-3 are cod liver oil and Sacha Inchi oil. Try to get around 3 grams of omega-3 every day.

2) The study showed that people who take a daily multivitamin had younger DNA and had 5.1 percent longer telomeres than non-users.
When you go to buy a multivitamin, stay away from discount store brands … they are inexpensive because those companies buy the cheapest, synthetic ingredients on the international market. This is one area where Dr.Sears don’t recommend cutting corners. Stick with a brand you know and trust.
3) That American Journal of Clinical Nutrition study also reveals that Vitamin B12 supplements increase telomere length. Foods rich in Vitamin B12 are:
• Beef (Grass-fed)
• Beef Liver
You need at least 100 mcg per day of vitamin B12 – and up to 500 mcg for energy.
4) Vitamins C and E increase the lifespan of cells by preventing telomere shortening.
|Foods rich in Vitamin C are:|
• Red & Green Bell Peppers,
You need at least 3,000 mg per day of natural vitamin C – up to 20,000 mg in times of stress or sickness.

|Foods rich in Vitamin E are:|
|• Turnip Greens|
• Olive Oil.
• Coconut Oil
Look for a natural E complex vitamin (it will say “mixed tocopherols” on the label) of 400 IU per day.
5) In another study, the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition looked at more than 2,000 women of all ages. The more Vitamin D they had in their bodies, the longer their telomeres were. On top of that, people who supplemented with vitamin D had longer telomeres than those who didn’t.
To get some vitamin D in your system:
• spend some time in the sun for 20 minutes each day.
• If you don’t see the sun too much in the winter, you can eat some of those same cold-water, fatty fish that give you omega-3.
• There’s also vitamin D in egg yolks and orange juice.
Blood levels are helpful to tell you how much you need to take but normally you need at least 2,000 IUs a day.
If you’d like to get your vitamin D in a supplement, make sure it’s vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol), natural and not synthetic.
Let Dr.Sears shows you how to unleash your body's age-defying power
1) Get Your Antioxidants:
Your body is under constant assault from free radicals, the rogue molecules that bind to healthy cells… and lead to breakdown and death.
• Vitamin A:
- meat, milk, eggs, liver, carrots, and spinach: 2,500 IU
• Vitamin E:
- Nuts, seeds, avocados: 400 IU
• Vitamin C:
- Citrus, strawberries, broccoli, peppers: 1,500 mg x 2
• Alpha Lipoic Acid:
- Red meat: 100 mg
- Red grapes, egg yolks, squash, peas, and oranges: 20 mg
- Tomatoes, guava, watermelon, pink grapefruit: 20 mg
2) Ramp Up Your CoQ10:
Ninety-five percent of all the cells in your body need it to turn fuel into energy. Your energy-intensive organs, like the brain and heart, burn through it at lightning speed.
Of course your body is running out of it with each passing year. From age 30 onwards, the telltale signs of aging start to appear—a weaker heart, duller mind and flagging energy.
You can reverse this process with supplements. You need at least 100 mg per day. Instead of the CoQ10 you find on most health food store shelves, try to find an easily absorbed, potent source.
3) Switch on Your “Immortality” Genes:
The new frontier in anti-aging science. Geneticists call it “gene expression.” You can now take advantage of it… and bring the aging process to a grinding halt.
It turns out that hidden within every cell of your body are genetic “switches” that remain in the off position most of your adult life. Normally they’re active only in the very first stages of life.
Here are the two important factors:
New research has uncovered a class of genes that can increase lifespan dramatically, as much as 100 percent in one study. They’re called sirtuins (“silent information regulator proteins”).
This natural compound found in grapes has the power to activate them. You can find it in health food stores or online.
A good dose for health promotion is between 20 mg to 50 mg per day. For anti-aging, you need at least 100 mg.
This simple molecule, extracted from the Astralagus plant, is the greatest breakthrough in the history of anti-aging medicine.
It flips on the switch that turns back your internal biological clock. Your cells literally get younger as you get older.
