How long will you live?

Thought-provoking question, isn’t it. Because we usually don’t know. Health-wise, however, we kinda do know. It all depends on how long your telomeres are.

We replace approximately our body weight in cells every year. As we do the cells become like photocopies in the sense that they aren’t as good as the original. Our cells weaken every time they renew themselves and with each reproduction our telomeres shorten. Once the telomere is gone cell division stops.

Many factors affect our telomeres lengths. Some people’s are naturally already shorter. Lifestyle factors strongly affect the length. Habits like smoking, over-eating, lack of exercise, stress, pollution, and more shorten your telomeres’ lengths.

Shorter telomeres also raise your risk of cancer producing cells and risk of disease.

Your lifestyle really could be killing you.

All of these factors will reduce the rate of telomere shortening, risk of disease and pace of aging.

Another way to support your cells is with essential oils. Frankincense in particular, which is one of the many ingredients in DDR Prime capsules. This is a blend of essential oils designed to assist in and to support healthy cell biogenesis, function, and renewal.

I take mine every day and find I even have more energy from it.
