PRO Sports Club Partners with T.A. Sciences® to Help its Patients Stay Healthy Inside and Out
The Anti-Aging Center at PRO Sports Club is now a certified provider of TA-65MD® nutritional supplements, the first research-based products that specifically target telomerase activation.
NEW YORK, N.Y., May 15, 2014 – Premier Washington-based health club, PRO Sports Club, has partnered with leading telomere-health company, T.A. Sciences®, to help its patients impact their health on a cellular level. Based on the science of telomere biology, T.A. Sciences® has developed products that address cellular aging through telomerase activation. The first product in its line, TA-65MD® nutritional supplements, is now available through the Anti-Aging Center at PRO Sports Club.
Telomeres are caps at the end of each strand of DNA that protect it, like the plastic tips at the end of shoelaces. By protecting the DNA that makes up genes, telomeres allow cells to function and reproduce properly. However, telomeres get shorter as people get older, leaving DNA unprotected and causing cells to age.
“The length of a person’s telomeres is a good indicator of their overall health status. Having short telomeres can accelerate the natural aging process on a cellular level,” said Dr. Joseph Upton, medical director of the Anti-Aging Center at PRO Sports Club. “I’m excited to be able to provide TA-65MD® to my patients at PRO Sports Club because it reflects our philosophy of ‘aging successfully’ inside and out.”
TA-65® is a patented, all natural plant-based compound that can help maintain or rebuild telomeres by activating an enzyme called telomerase. TA-65MD® nutritional supplements are the first in a line of products based on the TA-65® compound; a topical formulation, TA-65® for Skin, will be widely available later this year. Other products in this line currently in research and development include products designed specifically for pets.
“We believe the passion that PRO Sports Club has for keeping its patients youthful and healthy reflects our company’s commitment to advancing the knowledge of telomere biology and creating research-based products that help promote better cellular aging,” said Noel Patton, founder and CEO of T.A. Sciences®. “We are extremely pleased that TA-65MD® is now available to patients through the Anti-Aging Center and look forward to continuing our work with the club and its patients.”
About Telomere Biology
Telomeres are the caps at the end of each strand of DNA that protect it, like the plastic tips at the end of shoelaces. Telomeres shorten each time a cell divides, which, over time, leave the genetic DNA unprotected and causes cellular function to be compromised. An enzyme made only inside the cells called telomerase can slow, stop or perhaps even reverse age- and lifestyle-related telomere shortening.
