Omega-3 may help slow the aging process
There’s a lot of excitement coming the University of California in San Francisco…it’s all about the research being done on telomeres, the DNA sequences at the end of chromosomes that shorten as cells replicate and age.
Elizabeth Blackburn, a telomere pioneer at the institute, recently received the Nobel Prize in Physiology for her discovery of telomerase, an enzyme that protects telomeres as they shorten with each replication. Her work aims to overcome the burden of damage caused by aging cells.
In addition to this, researchers from the University of California have linked omega-3 to younger biological age. They found that people with low levels of DHA and EPA experienced the most rapid rate of telomere shortening, while people with the highest average blood levels experienced the slowest rate of telomere shortening.
