Telomerase is an enzyme that, during deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) replication in eukaryotes, allows the length of the chromosome to be preserved by adding a specific structure at each end: the telomere. Although composed of deoxyribonucleotides such as the rest of the chromosome, the telomere is synthesized in a manner different from conventional DNA replication. Telomerases are ribonucleoproteins that catalyze the addition of a specific repeat sequence to the end of the chromosomes. The life expectancy of cells is directly dependent on the length of telomere, hence the existence of many products on the market whose function is to slow down the telomere shortening during cell division. A telomerase activator was used to study telomere length in this research. The telomerase activator used is a recent natural product in the market named TeloBooster®. This natural product is patent protected. A group of humans underwent a 4-years daily intake of TeloBooster®. At the end of the experiment, all subjects got an important increase in telomere length. It was confirmed that there was no alteration of human metabolism; after screening thirty biochemical and histological variables of all the subjects.
