Overview

Based on the science behind the health breakthrough that won the 2009 Nobel Prize in Medicine, The Immortality Edge is the book that shares the priceless secrets to your long and healthy life.

When Carol Greider, Elizabeth Blackburn, and Jack Szostak won the Nobel Prize for their pioneering research on telomeres and telomerase, few people at the time outside the scientific world understood the truly life-changing implications of their work and how their amazing discoveries could be used to slow aging and the onset of diseases like Alzheimer's and cancer. The first popular book on this huge breakthrough, The Immortality Edge translates the latest research into a highly prescriptive program that will show you how to live a longer and more vital life by protecting your telomeres.

Telomeres keep our chromosomes intact, in the manner of the plastic caps that hold the ends of shoelaces together. As cells divide and replicate, telomeres eventually shorten; when they become too short, cells die. The great news is that you can slow telomere shortening and rejuvenate your cells by making relatively simple health and lifestyle changes. This extraordinary book shows you how, step by step.

Written by authors with extensive knowledge of genetics, telomeres, and longevity, The Immortality Edge gives you a complete program that incorporates specific recommendations regarding supplements, diet, stress-reduction techniques, and exercise. For each component of the program, you'll find clear explanations of the science behind the recommendations along with guidance and advice on how to implement them. The Immortality Edge is fully backed by the most up-to-date research findings and includes:

  • A two-phase supplement plan with detailed explanations and dosage information
  • Techniques that will reduce stress at the cellular level, improve your concentration, and help you sleep better
  • Eating guidelines to safeguard your telomeres, including the top twenty telomere-friendly foods
  • Fourteen days of meal plans
  • Fitness plans tailored to your own fitness level that combine interval, endurance, and resistance training advice

Long, healthy telomeres hold the key to a longer, healthier life. Start taking advantage of the Nobel Prize winning breakthrough and give yourself the immortality edge here and now.
