Epitalon is a synthetic peptide that is said to promote the production of telomerase, an enzyme that helps to maintain the protective caps on the ends of chromosomes known as telomeres. Some preliminary studies have suggested that epitalon may have anti-aging effects, but more research is needed to confirm these potential benefits and to determine the appropriate dosage. Epitalon is not FDA approved, and there is a lack of scientific evidence to support its safety or efficacy. It is important to consult with a qualified healthcare professional before taking any dietary supplement, including epitalon.
Epitalon is a small (4 amino acid sequence) peptide based on the natural peptide epithalamin extracted from the pineal gland. Studies have found that Epitalon increases telomerase activity (elongates telomeres), thus allowing cells to divide longer, which would explain some of the life-extension seen in studies.
