More news from http://www.commonskinconditions.com. Today, we talk telomeres. Many people don't know about the shortening of our telomeres, and that's a big problem. I put it down in simple terms and explain the role of the telomere in skin care.

Also, we recently added a page about Telomeres and Aging, because it’s a topic that many people are interested in, and asking about.

Dr. Elizabeth Blackburn is the biological researcher who co-discovered Telomerase, which is an enzyme that replenishes something called “Telomeres.” She even shared a Nobel Prize with her colleagues as a result of the discovery.

I've never had much of a head for science, but here's as best as I can describe how I have come to understand all this: These “Telomeres” are short parts of our DNA at the end of our chromosomes – kind of like little caps at the ends of the strands. When our cells divide – which they do all the time – as we age, those little protective “caps” – the Telomeres -begin to shorten. And, at some point, if there isn’t enough Telomerase to protect the Telomeres, the cell stops dividing.

And, researchers believe that a number of signs of aging are related to shortened Telomeres.

And, some of these researchers believe that if the Telomerase can be replenished in ideal levels – which can be the tricky part - this could be interesting indeed for those studying the aging process. However, the current literature on the subject is careful to warn that there is a great deal more to this that needs further and - in-depth study.

Head over to the site to read more about Telomeres! We’ll see you there. As always, thanks for tuning in, and have a great day!
