VITAL AND HEALTHY AT ALL AGES

Telomere shortening begins at conception which in turn initiates the aging of our cells. However the aging process is fairly silent until it begins to manifest itself with its typical signs and symptoms around 35 to 40 years. There is a stage in women and men's lives very well identified for most people. In women: Menopause and Pre-Menopause, which are two points of interconnection clearly identifiable. In men, testosterone levels fall by 3-5 % per year until reaching Andropause, varying between 40 and 50 years.
