Recently, at 75, I was ready to pack it in. Having a reasonable drug free, low exercise life style, and eating anything I wanted had me at 232 lbs, 6', and taking naps to get through the day, for my evening 1/2 hour walk on the Golf course. Along came Basis, 3 years ago, and then NMN.
My whole life changed. My ancestors from Costa Rica, the second most longevity country, gave me my genes. NMN gave me cellular regeneration to avoid the killing diseases of my age group, by offering first, stamina, good health from nutritional balance (natural foods) and sleep. My Pickleball play of 10 hrs / week allows the NMN/NAD+ to do it's job, cellular regeneration where ever my body needs it to perform at tournament level of Pickleball performance.

Everyone's body and quality of longevity is different. We each have to learn how our body works, in our present life style, and then change what is necessary to optimize it's performance in order that the NMN and NAD+ can offer a higher Quality and Longevity to us.

As far as I know, telomere is a dead-end for aging research.
In what way?
Telomere was a very popular topic in aging research decade ago. But now, people find out that it is more a result of aging, rather than the "cause". You can make a mouse live longer a little bit by activating telomerase, however, keep it in mind that telomerase activation is also a hallmark of cancer. Therefore, people in the field of aging are just not interested in telomere anymore, for its very limited application in the therapeutic approaches.
Ah, makes sense, thanks for the info! :)

I was curious to read more about this, and found this handy short form article that talks about this: ... telomeres/

There was an interesting account of the twin astronauts, one who was on the space station for a year, and one that remained on earth. They found that the astronaut in space had significantly lengthened telomers upon return compared to his earth bound brother. BUT after a short time his telomers shrunk to be even smaller than his brother's. Scientist are not sure why. ... human-bod/

I agree with other posters that telomers where once thought to be the secret to longevity, but the evidence now is very murky.
That was a really interesting article, cheers!

I googled the brothers to read more about them, and this article seemed promising, but it's behind a paywall: ... -nasa.html
