There are many anti-aging topical creams, gels and serums on the market today. But those fight aging topically… at the skin-cell level.
However, if your goal is to truly combat premature cellular aging and get Telomere support, Twinlab’s Daily One Age-Defense Telomere Multi™ may be worth looking into.
What Is A Telomere And How Does It Help Anti-Aging?
A Telomere (pronounced, ‘tell-uh-meer’), are the end caps – that is – the end of the human DNA chromosome strand. The easiest way to explain in, short and sweet: How long or short one’s Telomere’s caps are will determine how slow or fast one’s cells age. According to Twinlab’s website,”Telomeres have been compared to the plastic tips on shoelaces because they prevent chromosome ends from fraying (losing their base pairs).”
According to scientific research, Telomere’s are an essential part of DNA as it relates to aging, or anti-aging thereof. A Harvard study conducted demonstrated, “reversed age-related degeneration in mice, resulting in new growth of the brain and testes, improved fertility, and the return of a lost cognitive function.”
And since every organ in our body is comprised of cells, it’s apparent that Telomere’s play a critical role in the body’s health and longevity, from the inside out.
As mentioned in some research studies, “Telomere length represents our biological age, not chronological age.” Other studies have even linked Telomere’s to not just anti-aging, but also, anti-cancer.

In a Nut Shell
At the time of this writing, the supplement was taken for less than a month. Like any supplement, the more you take the product, the more you’ll likely benefit from the product. In addition, results are typically not apparent right off the bat and may take up to a few months. However, all that said, and taking into consideration the related Telomere research, product quality, brand longevity, and affordability, we think Twinlab’s Daily One Age-Defense Telomere Multi™ is something that should be considered for ultimate health and wellness.
