These four 79yo men don’t have any way to know what their lives would have been like without taking adaptogens.
Reduced telomere length variation in healthy oldest old
In this really fun 16-minute video, I interview Karl about hitting and batting his age at 76.
He talks about getting into an Ivy league college as his “safety school”, flying three jumbo jets with 5,000 mink into post-war Japan as a 21-year-old stranger in a strange land, and his dream of taking batting lessons from a defrosted Ted Williams.
Finally, Karl talks openly about his experiences taking TA-65, a telomerase activator, and the other keys to being incredibly productive and relatively healthy as he ages chronologically but not biologically. Karl is an inspiration and a great guy to get to know.
I would guess that his telomere length would have been LONGER three years ago because there would have been many stem cells in crisis with lengthening but damaged chromosomes. But I believe his percentage of critically-shortened telomeres would have been higher (typically in the teens)
For #ScienceSunday, I am posting this video of a brief interview that I did with Karl, our wonderful patient who was featured in a few of our previous videos about hypertension and sports injuries.
In it, we discuss the measurements of his telomere lengths. In videos to follow this one, I will discuss other interesting cases of even more dramatic changes.
