Multiple factors including environmental and genetic background and telomere length have been tied to this increased incidence. Though blood pressure issues are more prevalent among the elderly, a relationship between blood pressure and telomere length has also been reported in younger people.*

Numerous published studies have shown that particular nutraceuticals can have a direct impact on lengthening telomeres by activating telomerase, sometimes called our “fountain of youth” enzyme.
