WHAT IS COLLAGEN?

As a protein, collagen is made up of amino acids (arginine, glycine, hydroxyproline, and proline). Amino acids are comprised of the elements: carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen.

Η συχνότητα διαίρεσης και αντικατάστασης διαφέρει από όργανο σε όργανο. Αυτές οι διαιρέσεις και αντικαταστάσεις δεν μπορούν να συμβούν επ΄αόριστον. Υπάρχει ένα όριο.

Telomerase, the enzyme of immortality!

Telomerase. Our cells do not remain the same during our lives. In their majority, they are divided replacing the worn cells. The frequency of division and replacement differ from organ to organ.
