The Telomere Diet and Cookbook

By Maggie Moon

A delicious way to hack your DNA and prevent early aging by protecting your telomeres


While some enjoy extremely active and healthy lives as they age, others spend years of their life burdened by heart disease, dementia, and other age-related diseases. Until recently, this was often chalked up to luck or “good genes.” But fascinating new research suggests that telomeres, the protective caps on your chromosomes, are actually directly linked to aging. Telomeres, when protected, can lead to a longer, happier life.


Fortunately, one of the key components to protecting your telomeres is a balanced diet. The Telomere Diet and Cookbook is the first book to offer an easy-to-read, targeted overview of telomeres and nutrition. Including detailed meal plans and shopping lists, this book offers a simple step-by-step starter program and over 75 delicious recipes.
