The telomerase is an enzyme that, during DNA replication, preserves telomeres length, specific structures at each end of our chromosomes. Although composed of deoxyribonucleotides as the rest of the chromosome, the telomere is synthesized according to a different mode than the classical DNA replication .
The telomerase enzyme was discovered by Elizabeth Blackburn and Carol Greider in 1985. Discovery for which they were awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 2009. The protein composition of human telomerase was identified in 2007 by Dr. Scott Cohen and his team at Children's Medical Research Institute in Australia.
Telomerase is active only slightly or not at all in somatic cells , whereas it is very active in germ cells. This lack of activity in somatic cells brings replicative senescence, a phenomenon that is the root of aging.

TA-65® Telomerase Activation
The telomerase is present in almost all cells but in a non active mode. TA-65 activates the telomerase enzyme in cells, thus preventing the shortening of telomeres length and lengthening the shortest telomeres. This allows the cells to remain young and live longer. Most cells in the human body have the ability to live much longer but without telomerase our cells life duration is limited. The telomerase activation with TA-65 is immediate and even if it takes several months to feel the first benefits, the positive results are always there.
