Astragalus Organic 98% Cycloastragenol Extract
One of the most active of many natural compounds in the Astragalus plant. Believed to stimulate Telomerase, an enzyme being investigated for lengthening short telomeres.
Telomeres are short repetitive nucleotide sequences that terminate and protect our chromosomes from deterioration. These nucleotide sequences get shorter each time cells replicate, and require the activation of Telomerase to replenish this repetitive nucleotide sequence.
Do short telomeres equate to old age?
There has been a strong association between aging and shortened telomeres. When the majority of telomeres are too short to allow the DNA to replicate they, cannot and end up causing major damage to the tissues surrounding it.
Modern Astragalus extraction techniques cause loss of Cycloastragenol, and the raw herb contains too little Cycloastragenol to be of much benefit.
One 5mg dose is believed to be as potent as the same 50mg dose of Astragaloside IV, which is the less bioactive form of Cycloastragenol. Despite the increased price per gram, each dose is actually 20% less expensive due to the increased biological activity.
