What Are Youth Gene Clusters?

“In all things of nature there is something of the marvelous.” ARISTOTLE

Given the opportunity, our bodies are remarkably intuitive and therefore capable, at a cellular level, of repairing themselves. Thanks to Craig Venter, a leading scientist noted for his contributions in the field of genomic science, and Francis Collins, director of the U. S. Public Genome Project, announced the full human genome had been mapped. The genome, or genetic code, is comprised of 20,000 to 25,000 individual genes. This genome is a “blueprint” for building and running the cells of our bodies.

In an exclusive partnership, LifeGen Technologies and NuSkin Research and Development, researched and found that the way our genes are expressed or “communicate” changes with age. Together they also discovered there is no one single gene responsible for aging. They work in groups or clusters. Therefore, the way groups of age related genes, called Youth Gene Clusters, express themselves is the ultimate source of aging.

How can I get my “Youth Gene Clusters” express themselves so I look and feel younger?
The patented technology of LifeGen Technologies makes use of gene chips, a revolutionary technology that allows for the simultaneous analysis of gene activity of thousands of genes, helps to identify compounds that impact aging by retarding its progression or even reversing it in some cases! In other words, sun exposure, environmental pollution, exposure to chemicals, alcohol, poor diet, lack of sleep, lack of exercise and smoking effect the expression of youth by our “Youth Gene Clusters”. Each gene functions at a certain level when we are young and as we age, gene functionality may slow or speed up, leading to a different gene profile than when we were younger. The proprietary ingredients in their anti-aging  products have been designed to reset the “Youth Gene Clusters” by restoring their proper balance by delivering specific nutrients to promote youthful gene expression inside and outside.
I had you learn about Youth Gene Clusters, because I will be mentioning them a lot on this blog in the future. Please let me know if you have additional questions on this topic.

Health Tip: Sleep!
Many Americans treat their cars better than they do their bodies. Take a moment to note how long your car was parked (rest) and then how much sleep (rest) did you get last night. Studies have shown Americans do not get enough sleep. When we sleep our bodies repair and re-energize. You cannot “bank” sleep. If you missed some ZZZZ’s you just shorted yourself! Without the necessary time to repair, you are aging your body. You would be upset if your car wore out to soon. Think about that in terms of your body.
