Nutraceutical formulation increases telomere length and activates telomerase activity in middle‑aged rats

Centella Asiatica is commonly known as Gotu Kola.

“The administration of a nutraceutical formulation containing centella asiatica extract, vitamin C, zinc and vitamin D3 in 18‑month‑old rats for a period of 3 months reduced the telomere shortening rate at the lower supplement dose and increased the mean telomere length at the higher dose.”

"pine bark also significantly increases endothelial nitric oxide levels and gotu kola stabilizes plaque making it less likely to rupture.

Gotu kola, also known as Centella Asiatica, is a potent telomere maintenance supplement as well."
