Epitalon is the synthetic version of the polypeptide Epithalamin, which is produced in the pineal gland. Numerous studies have shown the importance of telomerase production and telomere rejuvenation in combating the symptoms of aging. Epitalon research has shown the ability to increase the production of telomerase, which in turn then strengthen and lengthen telomeres, means Epitalon could potentially play a vital role in decreasing the aging process and as such, extend human longevity.
Epitalon is not a hormone, but a peptide that is made up of the amino acids Arginine and Lysine. The human body produces Epitalon naturally in the pineal gland in the brain. Epitalon is an “analog of the body’s own telomerase activator”.
