Multivitamin Fountain Of Youth

How long a human cells lasts can be determined by its telomerase shortening mechanism. The function of cell telomerase is to prohibit chromosome fusion or rearrangement during cell division. Each cell division shortens the telomerase until the cell can no longer divide and dies. Why is this important? Research published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition suggests that the telomerase of daily multivitamin users is 5% longer than non-users, making their biological age younger. The study subjects were 586 women aged 35 to 74.

The Bigger Picture: Multivitamin users tend to adhere to the components of a healthy lifestyle. They are much more likely to eat a healthy, balanced diet and exercise regularly. Still, if telomerase length can take some years off your biological age, it wouldn't hurt to start taking a multi.
