Its discovery is recent, but what lies at the heart of it — stem cells and telomerase activators — have always been within us. Our ancestors thrived by supporting and nurturing their stem cells through a primal diet, a pristine natural environment, and physical exertion. But today’s unhealthy eating habits, toxic environment, and sedentary lifestyle have upended that balance.
Embryonic stem cells and induced pluripotent stem cells have the ability to maintain their telomere length via expression of an enzymatic complex called telomerase. Similarly, more than 85%–90% of cancer cells are found to upregulate the expression of telomerase, conferring them with the potential to proliferate indefinitely. Telomerase Reverse Transcriptase (TERT), the catalytic subunit of telomerase holoenzyme, is the rate-limiting factor in reconstituting telomerase activity in vivo.
Nobel Prize-winning molecular biologists have discovered a way to activate a “sleeping gene” inside your cells. Activating this gene — what is called the “hTERT code” — is the key to halting and reversing biological aging. “hTERT” is shorthand for “telomerase gene therapy.” As you know, telomerase is the enzyme that extends telomeres and resets cell aging. Shortened telomeres change gene expression — for the worse.
Think of cellular aging as the “controller” responsible for everything we associate with aging, from wrinkles to Alzheimer’s. But once turned back on, the hTERT code makes it virtually impossible for the chronic diseases of aging to exist in your body. And diseased cells can be made to disappear as if they never existed at all.
