Telomeres and oxygen: Israeli scientists discover the secret of longevity

Breathing in pure oxygen can reverse the aging process, according to Israeli scientists at Tel Aviv University.

They concluded that being in a hyperbaric pressure chamber, where oxygen is supplied under pressure, can be very beneficial for the human body.

In particular, thanks to these procedures, telomeres have grown by 20% – the end areas on chromosomes that perform a protective function and shorten with age, which ultimately leads to cell aging.

During the experiments, telomeres grew in size, “rejuvenating” by about 25 years.
