A ground-breaking study published in the journal Nature showed that it's possible to reverse the infirmities associated with aging and regenerate deteriorating tissues and organs by rebuilding particular portions of DNA at the ends of chromosomes, known as telomeres.
TA65 is the only product on the market that has been researched and demonstrated to activate the gene for telomerase production and lengthen telomeres. When it comes to anti-aging regimens, TA-65 is the state of the art in restoring and rejuvenating cellular function, and ameliorating, even possibly preventing, the functional decline associated with growing older.
Astragalus is a common herb used in traditional Chinese medicine for its immune-boosting properties. Now the herb can add anti-aging to its impressive resume, as certain astragalus molecules have been found to contribute to telomere growth. According to a study published in the Journal of Immunology, substances within astragalus root (called cycloastragenols and astragalosides) can slow the aging process by activating telomerase enzyme production (responsible for telomere regeneration). The two patented forms of astragalus root extract are known as TAT2 and TA-65.
Bottom line: Since the extract responsible for lengthening telomeres is different from the standardized products available in a health food store, I recommend consulting with a health practitioner or integrative medicine doctor.
Repairing wound by using stem cells technology is an important strategy in the wound healing treatment of current medical field. Radix Astragalis, which strengthening body resistance, benefiting vital energy, promoting blood flow and anti-aging, has been widely applied in the treatment of many clinical diseases and syndromes. OBJECTIVE: To investigate the regulatory effect of Radix Astragalis on the proliferation of human epidermal stem cells derived from human skin. DESIGN, TIME AND SETTING: The cell, molecular biology experiment was performed at the First Affiliated Hospital, Nanchang University from September 2005 to June 2008. MATERIALS: Remaining free skin graft of burn and plastic patients was obtained from Burn Center
