Food Is Getting Sweeter

From eNewsletter 12/19/2022

DID YOU KNOW that an indicator for longevity, telomere length, can avoid attrition and even be lengthened from certain supplemental nutrients?

Telomeres lie at the end of our chromosomes. The longer they are, the longer you live, according to thousands of studies. Until recently, scientists did not know what could help prevent shortening. They now know that positive lifestyle choices are key. But other additional therapies, such as dietary supplements, can assist.

A recent study from Frontiers in Nutrition found that increased zinc intake was significantly related to longer telomere length among adults aged 45 years and older. The association was even more pronounced in females, obese, and low energy intake individuals.

Another study from Nutrients found that that combined supplementation of selenium and coenzymeQ10 (CoQ10) for 3 1/2 years prevented telomere attrition in elderly subjects.
