Increases Telomerase Activity
Cellular aging happens when a cell dies due to the shortening of its telomeres. Telomeres are the protective tips at the ends of chromosomes that protect our DNA. To support healthy aging, it is essential to maintain telomere length.
Telomerase is a naturally occurring enzyme that lengthens telomeres and protects them from shortening.

Telomere length is what some scientists have used to assess biological age.(1)
