Faster cell aging in apoe4 women.

Postby hairyfairy » Sat Sep 21, 2019 5:48 am

Iv`e read the reports about apoe4 women having shorter telomeres and faster cell aging. Is there any way to prevent this. I tried going on HRT once for 3 months, but all it did was send my cholesterol sky high.

I'm reading articles and listening to podcasts about lengthening telomeres. Intermittent fasting, going into ketosis are two ways I've read that work. Here' is an article I am reading right now, just found: https://situationalwellness.com/the-short-answer-to-aging-lengthen-your-telomeres

Hi Hairyfair,

Dr. Rhonda Patrick interviewed Elissa Epel, Ph.D. on the topic of telomeres and cell aging. Here is the link.

I'm reading Lifespan, by David A. Sinclair, Phd, which is about cell aging. I've also listened to podcasts of his interviews with Peter Attia, Dave Asprey, and Mark Hyman. Among other things, he talks about sirtuin genes, resveratrol, and NAD precursors and what he personally is doing to enhance his longevity. I haven't gotten to the part where he describes his daily practices, but the podcasts talk about it. Mark Hyman's is the most to the point about that.
