Some of you may or may not know that I hike… a lot. My website Hike Our Planet chronicles via photography, prose and quotes my adventures on the trails.
As I have gotten older recovery time between hikes has taken longer. Even though I workout on non-hiking days to stay strong some muscles have rebelled. Tai Chi and Qigong have helped with healing but not as quickly as when I was a bit younger. After nearly 2 months of taking TimeBlock I have experienced quicker healing times. While the daytime capsule fortifies my body throughout my day I believe the restorative night capsule accelerates healing while I sleep. Each week I have noticed my body responding to the power of the pure botanicals released 24 hours.
“The herbal ingredients used in Timeblock are specifically grown under organic conditions at an elevation of more than 1,500m above sea level in selected regions all over the world.” TimeBlock
I can recommend these to anyone who lives an active life.
Have a wonder-filled day!

EGCG Containing Combined Dietary Supplement Affects Telomeres and Epigenetic Regulation
Methods: For this study 110 healthy participants of both sexes between 31-76 years were recruited, 101 subjects were included in further analysis. A small reference group (n=20) without intervention within the same age interval served as control. Participants received a plant based dietary supplement (TimeBlock®) for 6 months by oraladministration. Ingredients included extracts from green tea (EGCG), wheatgrass (tocotrienols), barley grass (folicacid), tomatoes (lycopene), tagetes (zeaxanthin, lutein), algae, shiitake mushrooms (vitamin D) and grape seeds (resveratrol). Capillary blood samples were collected from all participants before administration and within 6 days after the end of the study period following DNA extraction, bisulfite conversion and qPCR as well as high resolution melting curve analysis addressing analysis of LINE-1, c-Myc, IL-6, MLH1, DNMT1, ITGA2B and telomere length. Nutrition, lifestyle and health status were assessed with a standardized food and lifestyle questionnaire.
Results and discussion: Our results confirmed the positive effect of plant derived antioxidants on telomeres and inflammation frequency. An age-specific drift of analyzed markers could be observed. While methylation of c-Myc-a key factor in telomerase regulation-was not affected by administration, total telomere length showed a significant increase, which we suggest to be linked with an increased cell turnover and accelerated apoptosis of senescent or mutated cells without enhancing telomerase activity. Further, methylation of mismatch repair protein gene MLH1 showed a strong negative correlation with telomere length, supporting the influence of MMR on telomere regulation.
Conclusion: The results of the present study indicate that a combined administration of a variety of
phytochemicals can be a potential preventive and therapeutic agent, as each substance exhibits different modes of action and in combination, health promoting effects could be potentiated. Addressing different mechanisms of aging, specific phytochemicals could be used as new therapeutic approach against age-related diseases.
