Every day, the cells in your body are replicating. The same process that develops a single egg into a human being is occurring constantly to renew your skin, hair, blood cells, and some internal organs.
On-going cell replication
If you think back to biology class, a cell replicates in two phases. During its first step, interphase, the cell gathers nutrients and begins to duplicate the DNA inside its nucleus. Then the cell splits into two, the mitosis phase. This very process is how you grow as a child. Even when we’re fully developed, cells continue to split. However, by the time we’re adults, our cells begin to show some wear and tear.
It’s sort of like using a copy machine. Your first copy of the original is sharp and clear. But if you continue to copy what comes out of the machine, the original image begins to deteriorate. The same principle applies to the DNA in our cells.
The role of telomeres
The ends of DNA strands are called “telomeres.” These telomeres are like protective caps on our genes, containing the essential chromosome information inside. Each time a cell replicates, a portion of the telomere wears away. This shortened telomere is duplicated during the next cell division, and becomes shorter again. Once a telomere has effectively worn away, the cell has reached “old age” and loses its ability to divide.
Jeunesse and DNA repair
Nutritional scientists have made breakthrough results in slowing this aging process by targeting
cells during interphase. By enriching the cells with potent vitamins and minerals, cells are able
to replicate in a healthier state and help maintain telomere length. And when telomeres are
slower to deteriorate, this in turn delays the very aging process of cells.
AM & PM Essentials™ from Jeunesse are daily nutritional supplements scientifically formulated
to target cell telomeres. Prolonging the lifespan of telomeres helps delay the aging process.
In addition, AM Essentials™ release additional energy-enhancing nutrients selected to improve
body functions that are active during the day. The nutrients give systems the vitamins and
minerals needed at the cellular level for optimal function, including mental clarity and focus.
PM Essentials send nutrients that are needed to give you a restful sleep and give your body
essential vitamins and minerals needed for cell reparation that occurs during rest.
