How can I help prevent the cells in my body from dying?

Dr. Mehmet Oz, MD
Cardiology (Cardiovascular Disease)
The following can help prevent cellular exhaustion (cellular death):
  • Try astragalus, a medicinal Chinese plant shown to help rebuild genes by boosting the enzyme telomerase. Along with ginseng, astragalus is a member of the adaptogenic herb family that also helps reduce stress.
  • Stand up for 10 minutes a day. Many of us have difficulty finding time to exercise. If you can't get in your daily walk, you certainly can make time to stand up for 10 minutes a day, an activity shown to dramatically help rebuild your genes.
