Zinc contributes to normal DNA synthesis.

Zinc contributes to the protection of cells from oxidative stress.

Zinc has a role in the process of cell division.

How old are your cells?

Delaying cellular ageing is now possible thanks to the discovery of telomeres. The cells contain basic genetic information in the form of DNA, which is structured and organised in the form of chromosomes. To protect this valuable information, ‘caps’ (like a pen cap) called telomeres areplacedat the ends of chromosomes. Every time a cell divides, these telomeres are shortened. 

After multiple divisions over the years, the telomeres are so short that the cell becomes unstable, entering a phenomenon of cellular senescence, which is aggravated by oxidative stress 1. The length of the telomeres is therefore considered a marker of ageing, and shorter telomeres have been associated with greater risk of suffering age-related diseases 2

However, the body has telomerase, an enzyme capable of regenerating telomeres to maintain the cell's replicative capacity and stability, helping to slow down the ageing process 3.

Ageing solution

There is no fountain of eternal youth. And since life expectancy has increased in recent decades, science is looking for solutions to slow down the processes of cellular senescence. How? Helping to slow down the two main factors that lead to premature cell ageing: oxidative stress and telomere shortening 4.

Pro DNA is the natural solution for addressing precisely these two factors, helping cells to stay young for longer and therefore maintain their correct function. A combination of plant extracts together with the mineral zinc in a natural anti-ageing formula

  • Contains 250 mg astragalus root extract (Astragalus membranaceus Moench) standardised to contain 10% astragaloside IV (25 mg per capsule). This plant protects cells and tissues from oxidative damage 5. It has been demonstrated that Astragalus helps to activate the enzyme telomerase and to help lengthen telomeres by reducing cell ageing, as well as having antioxidant and anti-inflammatory action 6.
  • Grape seed extract, which has a high antioxidant action, is also included in this formula 7. Standardised to contain 15% resveratrol, it provides natural antioxidants that help protect cells from oxidative damage by free radicals, helping to reduce some diseases related to oxidation and ageing 8.
  • Finally, zinc has been included to complete the Pro DNA formula. Zinc is a mineral that contributes to DNA synthesis, the cellular division process and to protecting cells from oxidative stress 9

Taking two capsules of Pro DNA per day helps to reduce the oxidation and premature ageing of cells. A natural solution based on standardised plant extracts with antioxidant action, combined with the mineral zinc, which contributes to normal DNA synthesis.
