TELOMERES TELL THE STORY
"The Shaklee population was only onethird as likely to have telomeres in the
bottom quartile based on other studies
that examined short telomeres and their
relationship to a long, healthy life."
DR. ELIZABETH BLACKBURN
SHAKLEE SCIENTIFIC BOARD ADVISOR
2009 NOBEL PRIZE WINNER IN MEDICINE
Dr. Elizabeth Blackburn, Shaklee Scientific Board
Advisor, was awarded the 2009 Nobel Prize for
Medicine for the discovery of an enzyme that
lengthens telomeres and protects chromosomes.
Shaklee conducted the preliminary Telomere Study,
which compared people using Shaklee supplements
for at least 5 years to healthy nonsmokers living in the
San Francisco Bay Area.
The Telomere Study showed that Shaklee long-term
supplement users had a 40% lower rate of telomere
shortening across the adult age range compared to a
healthy control group.‡
SHAKLEE USERS HAD LONGER TELOMERES
AN 80-YEAR-OLD SHAKLEE SUPPLEMENT USER IS
PROJECTED TO HAVE THE SAME TELOMERE LENGTH
AS A 41-YEAR-OLD NON-SUPPLEMENT USER BASED ON
A PRELIMINARY CLINICAL STUDY. **
Telomeres are the caps that protect
the ends of chromosomes. As we age,
telomeres grow shorter, preventing cells
from being able to replenish tissue, which is
necessary to help live a long, healthy life.
