Telo-Extension Capsules - Telomere Lengthening Anti-Aging Herbal Supplement

Our DNA is very complex and difficult to understand. The structure of DNA is like a story and this story is like a master blueprint for life. It is true that our  DNA is like an inheritance which is being passed on to every individual from their parents. There are some beautiful lines on DNA that “it is the basis of life on earth, the thing that came from our parents with variations and is the master mind of every function and characters.” DNA is a unique, specific essence of our presence. This article is about a very small part of this DNA structure and its name is telomere. So, let’s get to know about telomeres and how their damage can be prevented.

Telomere and Aging


Telomeres are the specific DNA protein structures which are found at the both ends of each chromosome. These telomeres are responsible for protecting the genome from nucleolytic degradation along with unnecessary recombinations. The telomeres are also responsible for repairing the end strands of DNA and are responsible for interchromosomal fusion. Telomeres are also responsible for preserving the information which is present in our genomes. As the normal cellular process goes on, a small portion of telomeric DNA is lost with each cell division.

When telomere length reaches a critical limit the cell undergoes a process of deterioration with age. Therefore, telomere length serves as the biological clock for the determination of lifespan of a cell as well as an organism.

Certain factors which are associated with lifestyle or diet style can be responsible for expedite or early telomere shortening. This is because of the damage which is done by our wrong diet and wrong lifestyle.

Moreover, shortening of telomeres can also be associated with onset of a disease.


Telomeres are the DNA- protein complexes at the chromosome ends which are responsible for protecting the genomes from degradation and also from interchromosomal infusion. Telomeric DNA is associated with telomere binding proteins and a loop structure mediated by TRF2 protects the ends of human chromosomes against the exonucleolytic degradation.

Now the topic of discussion is how to prevent the degeneration of telomere at a faster rate.

In human life, everyone wants to live long and now after reading above you know that living long depends on the telomeres. So for the extension of telomere life and also for its regeneration Planet Ayurveda has its product named as Telo-Extension.

Let’s get to know about Telo-Extension in detail and also about its ingredients.


Telo Extension is a Planet  Ayurveda's patent product which is prepared using seven different herbs. These herbs are known to have an effect so deep that it can have its impact on Chromosomes and obviously on telomeres as well. The ingredients are one of the most famous herbs of Ayurveda and have a rejuvenating effect as well. Here rejuvenation stands for regeneration of cells and chromosomes as well. Now, coming to the next part of this article, explaining ingredients in detail.


  1. Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera)
  2. Grapeseed (Vitis vinifera)
  3. Amla (Emblica officinalis)
  4. Moringa (Moringa oleifera)
  5. Pine Bark (Pinus longifolia)
  6. Giloy (Tinospora cordifolia)
  7. Rose Hip (Rosa indica)

Telo-Extension Capsules

1. Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera)

Ashwagandha is a very well known and effective herb of Ayurveda. The herb belongs to balya and bruhiniya gana which means its consumption provides strength to the body at cellular level as well as on chromosomal level. The herb is also known to be nourishing and the nourishment just doesn't run for dhatus or bodily tissues but deeper. Ashwagandha also has an impact on doshas which means it helps in maintaining the dosha stability which in turn reduces the chances of  onset of diseases. Thus helps in eliminating the factor responsible for telomere degradation at a faster rate. Even in cancer the herb has a great role as it balances kapha dosha which is responsible for cancerous growth and again helps in eliminating the factor responsible for telomere destruction. Hence ashwagandha justifies its part for being the first ingredient of the Telo-Extension.

2. Grapeseed (Vitis vinifera)

The grape seed is an amazing and very good agent that helps in improving the condition of the body. It can also reduce the oxidative damage done to various body parts by the free radicals.  Grape seeds are known to support the working of the central nervous system as well and prevent the atrophy with age as well. So, all these properties of grapes depict a very common thing and that grape seeds help in enhancing the life expectancy of cells and life expectancy of cells is only enhanced or increased when the process of damage is eliminated and telomeres are being protected.  This is what grape seeds are actually capable of rejuvenating, regenerating and giving protection effects on chromosomal levels. These seeds also help in inhibiting infectious agents. The herb is a very good agent for improving kidney function and reducing the risk of cancerous growths as well. Grape seeds also improve blood circulation and have an anti-inflammatory effect. In short, it helps in keeping dosha in balance thus protecting the body from chronic diseases and automatically increasing the life expectancy of cells and has an effect on chromosomal level as well.

3. Amla (Emblica officinalis)

Amla or amalaki is a herb belonging to the vyasthapak gana. Amla is a herb that has a great effect in rejuvenating the every minute molecule of the living body. The fantastic thing about this herb is that it has a great role in boosting the immunity of the body as it helps in balancing all three doshas as well as being an immunomodulator as well. Amla is even termed as a herb which can be used in say 100 ways to treat 100 different types of conditions. As the herb is known to protect the body cells from the damage caused by free radicals then in a direct way it is also having effect on a chromosomal level as it is also protecting chromosomes from the effect of free radicals as well. This plant has a great effect on digestion as well. Digestion is maintained using this herb very well. Maintaining digestion means no accumulation of endotoxins, no accumulation of endotoxins means smooth functioning of the body and hence no fasten up process of telomere destruction.

4. Moringa (Moringa oleifera)

Moringa is a herb that is widely used in India especially in South India. It is used in preparation of many dishes and gives exotic taste. But, the herb has more benefits than just being an ingredient for some dishes. Moringa is known to enhance the extension of telomeres. Telomeres, as mentioned before, are likely to degrade with age and if any diseased condition is going on inside the body then its degradation becomes faster. Moringa here, helps in even recovering from cancer. It is proven by many studies that natural herbs like moringa have cytotoxic  properties towards cells and give very great results as a cell rejuvenator. It also has its effect on telomere extension as well because of its rejuvenating and regenerating effect on cells.

5. Pine Bark (Pinus longifolia)

Pine bark (Pinus longifolia) extract is known to be rich in certain constituents that have their effect on the major system of the body. It has procyanidins which have great effect on the cardiovascular system, catechins that have a role in protecting the body from harmful effects of  antioxidants and phenolic acids that are known to protect cells from free radical oxidation. Obviously, a herb with these benefits deserves to be the part of telo extension formulation as protecting cells means protecting telomeres present on the ends of chromosomes situated inside the nucleus of the cell.

6. Giloy (Tinospora cordifolia)

Giloy or Guduchi is a herb which is known as the magical herb of the Ayurveda. This herb belongs to the vyavasthapak gana which means a group of herbs that are known to enhance life expectancy. Giloy is known for its magical effect on the body. For giloy, a very beautiful line is said that giloy is the amrit for life and yes indeed it is. Giloy is known to act inside the body in a way which is required by the body itself. That’s why it is termed as vichitravirya. The herb is known to enhance the immunity of the body hence strengthening the immune system or defence system of the body. There is no molecule in the living body on which guduchi can not work and that includes telomeres as well.  That’s why the herb is called amruthaballi as well.

7. Rose Hip (Rosa indica)

Roses are usually the symbol of love but in this case they are the symbol of love not for anyone else but for your telomeres. It’s a very simple line with deep meaning and in the same way roses seem beautiful but bears magic within those lovely red petals. The Ayurvedic text mentions that rose is known to balance the fire element inside the body that means it balances the thermal energy inside the body.  As we all know that heat can make things but over heat can destroy things too. Same is the case inside the human body, when the thermal energy is in stable form it can be beneficial for the body but when this energy is not stable it gives rise to conditions which can create an environment inside the body resulting in faster telomere degradation. That’s where this beautiful flower comes in action and helps in stabilising many functions in the body with its pungent, bitter, astringent and sweet taste. This makes it a perfect balancer for kinetic and potential energies, that’s how rose hip justifies its role in Telo-Extension.


1 capsule twice daily with plain water after meals.


The telomere is a very important part of our DNA and to protect it one must start from the necessary modifications in your diet and lifestyle. It’s damn important to understand what you can eat and what you need to avoid. So, if you don't even think about your digestion then do think about your telomere and it’s sure that you won’t eat things you are not supposed to eat and you will not live in the way you are not supposed to live. Changes start from changing oneself and to help you Ayurvedic herbs are always there. For helping out with your telomeres the Formulation named Telo-Extension is manufactured which can help in telomere protection as well as telomere extension as well.
