If you haven’t heard much about Telomeres, you soon will!

They are the ends of the Chromosomes on every cell in your body; the Nobel Prize was recently awarded to scientists who’ve identified them as a biological clock closely tied to living a longer, healthier life. We’ve created agemarker.com to keep you informed on the latest developments on this important science and– most importantly–how you can apply it to your life.

Each cell in the average human body contains 23 pairs of chromosomes, with four telomeres on each pair. While there is a length range for classifying a healthy telomere, researchers found, for the first time ever, that people with heart failure have shorter telomeres within the cells that make up the heart muscle (known as cardiomyocytes).
