Telomax® Does More Than Help Maintain Long Telomeres
TeloMax® is a Multipath Regeneration (MuR) supplement designed using our proprietary stem cell testing and AI technologies to provide telomere support and youthful body function, while lowering damaging chronic stress and supporting healthy inflammation levels. Maximizing telomere length involves more than just boosting them it also is important to protect them from damage which can cause significant shortening. TeloMax® contains natural MuR herbal components that boost telomeres while slowing telomere loss due to damage that may be caused by inflammation, radiation, toxins, stress, disease or injury. By providing additional telomere support and reducing cellular stress, TeloMax® provides broad-based anti-aging support for most body tissues, such as the brain, colon, endocrine glands, heart, kidneys, liver, lungs, and skin.
For customers wanting the maximum rejuvenation and longevity support we recommend combining TeloMax® with Stem Cell 100+®. Our Longevity ComboTM includes both and the Rejuvenation ComboTM adds EpiMaxTM as a third supplement.
Recent research indicates that the ends of chromosomes (i.e. telomeres) play a key role in aging. Telomeres shorten as we age, leading to aging at the cellular level. Telomerase is the key antiaging enzyme that repairs the ends of chromosome (telomeres) by maintaining telomere length. Harvard scientists have shown that one of the fundamental causes of age-related health decline is linked to telomerase. Mice without telomerase prematurely age, whereas activating telomerase in these old mice brings back youthful looks and function. Many scientists believe that telomerase mediated reversal of age-related disorders may also work in humans. It has been shown that healthy diet and exercise, which lengthen life, increase telomerase activity and telomere length[1-4].
Stem cells are the main class of cells in humans that have detectable telomerase activity. Unfortunately, telomerase activity in human stem cells is typically insufficient to maintain needed function with age. TeloMax® contains natural compounds that have been shown to protect and support telomeres.
TeloMax® Supplement Facts
Recommended Use: Typical usage of TeloMax® is 2 capsules per day, preferably with or after a meal.
Recommended Users: Anyone from ages 20 and up could benefit from TeloMaxTM.
Active Ingredients: There are 8 herbal extracts in TeloMaxTM along with one pharmaceutical grade mineral Chromium (as Albion TRAACS). The highly extracted natural herbs are standardized for active components that provide telomere support in adult stem cells and/or lower chronic cellular stress. TeloMaxTM has been tested as a synergistic herbal formulation with calibrated effective dosages for each individual herbal component:
1) Withania somnifera (aka Ashwagandha) is the principle adaptogen in Indian Ayurvedic Medicine (IAM) that appears to reduce chronic stress via modulation of Cortisol and neurotransmitters , and has positive effects on endurance, immunity, quality of life, sexual performance, stress, and many body organs [5-10]. Unlike American and Asian ginseng adaptogens, IAM Withania has rebalancing and energy promoting effects without raising blood pressure. Life Code? uses a high quality proprietary IAM Withania extract that tests well in our stem cell screening experiments.
2) Angelica Sinensis (aka Dong Qual) contains several plant phytochemicals including coumarins and phytosterols. It is wildly used in Chinese Traditional Medicine (CTM) for fatigue, infertility, joint pain, allergic attacks, and skin discoloration. Angelica acts by balancing hormones, which typically become unbalanced with age. It provides phyto-estrogens that can regulate telomerase and promote stem cells [11-13]. Life Code? uses a proprietary Angelica extract favored by practitioners of CTM.
3) Crataegus Oxyacantha (aka Hawthorn) contains tannins that are widely used in CTM to promote cardiovascular health[14,15]. Animal studies have shown that Crataegus has strong anti-inflammatory and stress protective effects [16-18]. Life Code? uses a proprietary Angelica extract favored by practitioners of CTM.
4) Silybum marianum is standardized for Silymarins, which are a complex mix of related Silibins known to promote healthy liver function. Silymarin has been shown to stimulate neurons and immunity [19,20] and is reported to slow aging of blood vessel endothelial cells by increasing telomerase activity 3-fold and reducing the number of senescent cells . Life Code? uses a high quality proprietary S. marianum extract standardized for 95% Silymarins that generates some three times higher levels of survival in Drosophila Stress test experiments.
5) Hyaluronic acid is distributed widely throughout connective, epithelial, and neural tissues. It is a major component of the synovial fluid, and is one of the fluid’s main lubricating components. Hyaluronic acid is an important component of articular cartilage, where it is present as a coat around each cell. It is also a major component of skin, where it is involved in tissue repair. While it is abundant in extracellular matrices, hyaluronic acid also contributes to tissue hydrodynamics, movement and proliferation of cells, and participates in a number of cell surface receptor interactions, notably those including its primary receptors, CD44 and RHAMM. Upregulation of CD44 itself is widely accepted as a marker of cell activation in lymphocytes
6) Diindolylmethan (DIM) is a major protective compound found in cruciferous vegetables like cabbage, cauliflower, and broccoli. DIM promotes healthy function in prostate, breast, liver, lung, uterine, and colon by promoting autophagy (removal of cell waste), cell cycle regulation, and angiogenesis (blood vessel growth) [24-27]. DIM also acts on the regulation of telomerase .
7) Gotu Kola (Centella asiatica) has been used as traditional medicine for thousands of years in China and India. It has been called the ?fountain of life? by Chinese herbalist claiming to live well over a hundred years. It has been used for wound healing, neural protection, varicose veins and poor blood circulation[29-32].
8) Genistein is a hormonal phyto-estrogen that acts to promote many anti-aging genetic pathways, including activation of the estrogen receptor and autophagy (cell waste disposal) while inhibiting the sugar transporter GLUT1 and DNA methylation. Genistein can also directly activate telomerase activity at low doses . Life Code? uses a carefully calculated human dose of a proprietary 98% Genistein extract that has tested well in dose-dependent animal stress test screening experiments.
9) Lithium (as Lithium Orotate) promotes longevity in several animal species and in humans [33-36]. Important pathways affected by lithium include autophagy, tau phosphorylation, and neural transmitter breakdown by acetylcholinesterase. Lithium has been added at a very low dose, which our animal testing showed extended longevity while minimizing potential side effects.
Safety: The extracts in TeloMax TM are pharmaceutical grade and have been individually tested in both animals and humans without significant safety issues. TeloMax TM is manufactured at a cGMP facility registered with the FDA.
