MaxEFA’s slow Aging

MaxEFA’s Slow Aging by Keeping DNA “Caps” Intact

The results of a new study suggest that (MaxEFA’s) may also act to protect our DNA from decay … a fundamental level in the fight against premature aging.

Scientists looked at the length of DNA sequences at the end of chromosomes ─ called “telomeres”─ that shorten as cells replicate and age.

Findings now add fish-borne omega-3s (MaxEFA’s) to list of telomere protectors.

Researchers based at the University of California conducted a study designed to determine whether omega-3 blood levels were associated with changes in telomere length among heart patients with coronary artery disease.

Specifically, they compared the lengths of telomeres in the participants’ leukocytes – a type of blood cell – at the beginning and end of a five-year period.

After comparing the starting lengths of the cardiac outpatients’ telomeres with their length after five years, the researchers found that people with the lowest omega-3 levels experienced the speediest rate of telomere shortening.

In contrast, those with the highest omega-3 levels showed the slowest rate of telomere shortening.

The whole telomere thing fascinates me. This is so interesting.I would be so curious to know the lenghth of mine. I have a problem with absorbtion of my fats. I always have to take larger doses of EFA’s It seems to me that I may have to try these EFA’S Thank you for the imformation…God Bless xo KS

hi
i just read this article that say omega 3 fatty acids can reduce hgh levels.and hg controls aging directly . is this true?
