Cortisol, the stress hormone, reduces telomerase activity

Ed Park, MD News 0 Comments

You can measure telomerase activity with something called the TRAP assay. That is how they figured out that TA-65 works.

This interesting study may be the missing link to understand why stress ages us.  It shows that the stress hormone, cortisol, decreases telomerase activity.

That is why learning to manage stress is healthy and becoming overwhelmed by it ages us.  Look at JFK before presidency:

He had Addison’s disease so he required a lot of cortisol which made his face round. It probably kept his telomeres from regenerating like they needed too.

I graduated from Harvard with honors in Biological Anthropology prior to earning my Medical Degree and Masters in Public Health from Columbia University.

In 2007, I became the nineteenth patient to sign up for the use of a herbally-extracted telomerase activator.

The results were so positive that I founded Recharge Biomedical Clinic in 2008 and have since become the leading medical expert in this exciting new field of regenerative medicine treating over 1,300 patients with this exciting new telomerase activation medicine.

I won two Houston Film Festival Awards for my screenplays about Hypatia of Alexandria and Ed Brown of Kentucky.

In 2010 I wrote and self-published a Sci-Fi Graphic Novel called MAXIMUM LIFESPAN

In 2013, I wrote and published "Telomere Timebombs; Defusing the Terror of Aging"
