A 2012 study (1) from Ohio State University revealed promising data for the world of longevity and anti-aging: if you want to add years to your life, begin by adding length to your telomeres.
But how exactly do you do that ?
According to their research, there’s at least one clinically demonstrated approach that’s not only simple but immensely effective, too:
Daily supplementation with the high quality, pharmaceutical grade omega-3 supplement, OmegaBrite 70/10 MD.
Telomeres, Omega-3 Fatty Acids, and Longevity
Telomeres are the so-called caps at the ends of your DNA—akin to the plastic caps of shoelaces which keep the laces from fraying and falling apart. Telomeres function in the same way: they protect your DNA and its constituent chromosomes, safe-guarding them against damage.
The problem is, telomeres tend to get shorter as you age. This is due to a phenomenon known as oxidative stress—analogous to rust on metal—which is largely triggered by free radicals (unstable and harmful metabolic by-products) and and other factors.
OmegaBrite promotes a healthy inflammation response. And the Ohio State University researchers found that study subjects who took the high potency OmegaBrite 70/10 MD omega-3 daily for 4 months had decreased oxidative stress and—incredibly—increased telomere length.
This is incredible news for healthy aging—how a simple supplement can turn back the clock, reverse telomere damage, and ultimately protect your DNA.
The OmegaBrite Difference
We can glean a lot from this data:
First, the study was a placebo-controlled, double-blinded, randomized trial with over 100 subjects—crème de la crème in terms of scientific rigor.
Second, the authors attributed the telomere lengthening effect to the quality of OmegaBrite itself:
• OmegaBrite features a proprietary blend of 90% omega-3 fatty acids sourced from sustainable and high quality fish and proprietary antioxidants.
• OmegaBrite contains an industry-leading 7:1 ratio of EPA to DHA.
• OmegaBrite improves the ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids—which appears more influential in association with telomere length compared to just omega 3 supplemention alone.
Lastly, the researchers actively sought out OmegaBrite for their study, given its reputation for purity and potency—OmegaBrite didn’t ask for nor fund the study in any way.
Bias effect? Nil.
