TELOMERE – Base Blend

WHAT IS A TELOMERE? Telomeres are structures made from DNA sequences and proteins found at the ends of chromosomes. They cap and protect the end of a chromosome. They also separate one chromosome from another to prevent fusion and genomic instability.

WHY DO TELOMERES SHORTEN? When the telomere becomes too short (genetically pre-determined, age, stress, diet, lifestyle-related), the chromosome reaches a ‘critical length’ and can no longer be replicated. This ‘critical length’ triggers the cell to die by a process called apoptosis, also known as programmed cell death. Shorter telomeres have a negative effect on our health in general.

SHORTER TELOMERES AND CANCER, INFECTIOUS DISEASE OR HEART DISEASE? Shorter telomeres have also been implicated in genomic instability and oncogenesis. Genomic instability is the increased tendency for DNA mutations (changes) and other genetic changes to occur during cell division. Genomic instability is caused by defects in certain processes that control the way cells divide.

It occurs in many types of cancer. These defects may include mutations in certain genes involved in repairing damaged DNA or mistakes that do not get corrected when DNA is copied in a cell. They may also include defects such as broken, missing, rearranged, or extra chromosomes.

Older people with shorter telomeres have three- and eight-times increased risk of death from heart or infectious diseases, respectively.

HOW DO I INCREASE THE LENGTH OF MY TELOMERES? Research shows that those with higher levels of antioxidants such as Vitamin C, E and selenium tend to have longer telomeres.

CAN SHORTENED TELOMERES BE REVERSED? There is scientific evidence that telomeres can be lengthened. An enzyme called telomerase can slow or even reverse the telomere shortening that happens as we age. The amount of telomerase in our bodies declines as we age. Telomerase maintains and may even lengthen telomeres.


Just as life delivers curveballs, or you enter a new life stage, our body’s needs will change. We want to ensure that our bodies receive the targeted nutrition required to fuel the millions of biochemical processes that need to take place every second, to function optimally and live healthily.

So, a dynamic combination of science and supplementation expertise is needed to prevent inflammation, illness and restore health.

Knowledge of your changing lifestyle and life stages assists us in identifying which bio-specific nutrients you may need, in the right dosage, to ensure you enjoy maximum health benefits and live your life optimally.

Each person is completely unique, each cell a miniature version of you. Each person has different physiological needs. Generic supplements may not “do the trick”, or give you the results you’re after since they weren’t designed with your personal needs in mind. Also, a “one size fits all” approach is not targeted for your bio-specific needs.

Your answers to the MY BODY RESTORED wellness assessment will help us create your personalised blend, based on the wellness of your body on a cellular level.

The supplements are created by leading Biochemists, using thoroughly researched and validated ingredients including vitamins, minerals, plants, herbs and amino acids, in a combination blended using the RDA (recommended daily allowance) for average adults.


METHIONINE – Methionine is an essential amino acid in humans. As the substrate for other amino acids such as cysteine and taurine, versatile compounds such as SAM-e, and the important antioxidant glutathione, methionine plays a critical role in the metabolism and health of many species, including humans. Methionine is also an important part of angiogenesis, the growth of new blood vessels. Supplementation may benefit those suffering from copper poisoning. USED IN: The Glutathione base blend, the Telomere base blend

BERBERINE – One of the main functions is activating an important enzyme called AMPK, which regulates metabolism. Causes a Major Reduction in Blood Sugar Levels. May Help You Lose Weight. Lowers Cholesterol and May Reduce Your Risk of Heart Disease studies show that it may help fight depression. Test tube and animal studies have shown that it can reduce the growth and spread of various different types of cancer Antioxidant and anti-inflammatory: It has been shown to have potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects in some studies Infections: It has been shown to fight harmful microorganisms, including bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites Fatty liver: It can reduce fat build-up in the liver, which should help protect against non-alcoholic fatty liver disease Heart failure: One study showed that it drastically improved symptoms and reduced risk of death in heart failure patients. USED IN: The Glutathione base blend, The Telomere base blend, The Inflammation base blend.

ALPHA LIPOIC ACID – Alpha-lipoic acid has strong antioxidant properties, which may reduce inflammation and skin ageing, promote healthy nerve function, lower heart disease risk factors, and slow the progression of memory loss disorders. USED IN: The Inflammation base blend

COPPER GLUCONATE – Copper is needed to help your body use iron. It is also important for nerve function, bone growth, and to help your body use sugar. Lack of copper may lead to anemia and osteoporosis (weak bones). Dietary copper can be found in whole grain cereals, legumes, oysters, organ meats (particularly liver), cherries, dark chocolate, fruits, leafy green vegetables, nuts, poultry, prunes, and soybean products like tofu.

CHROMIUM PICOLINATE – Chromium may help the body process carbohydrates and fats. It is a weight loss aid for dieters, muscle-builders and athletes. Chromium Picolinate, is the most easily absorbed of all similar chromium products.
