Hi folks. I'm 41 years old on the wall clock. 5'4", 150lbs, caucasian, male. I don't smoke, drink, or do drugs.


A little over a year ago I took my first 'teloyears' test and got an ATL of 0.78, which is generally bad, and average for someone 20+ years older. I had already been working out and eating healthy.


I decided to try a few things to improve it. Between my first and second tests, (separated by 6 months) I attempted the use of Epitalon (from Ceretropic, now defunct). First attempt was done intranasally on 6/21/2017 for 10 days. 100mg in 10ml bacteriostatic water is 1-1.2mg per spray, once per nostril, 4-5 times per day (9 single sprays per day). This did not result in a significant improvement, as you can see from from the test results, with a statistically insignificant change to ATL:0.79.


So, in February of 2018, I decided to try doing 100mg in 10ml bacteriostatic water over 10 days, subcutaneously injected at 5mg twice per day. After waiting 5 months to give things time to shake out, I had a third telomere length test done, and the results came back at a significant ATL:1.07, average for people 10 years younger than myself.


I can not vouch for the accuracy of a Teloyears test, nor is my experience completely scientific here, but it would appear that since I did not consciously do anything else to affect my telomere length specifically, that this may have been the reason for the dramatic improvement in such a short timespan. Normally these things would take a lot longer to improve or worsen, but it would appear that this protocol did have the desired effect of lengthening my telomeres.


Between the second and third tests, I also took finasteride. I don't know if that had any effect on anything at all.

During the entire time period, I also took mitoq and basis/nicotinamide-riboside, but have also taken those before the length testing began as well.


YMMV, this is not medical advice. I don't feel or look any 'younger' and don't expect to. Aging is very complicated, but data is data, so I'm posting it here for your anecdotal edification.

Have you tried any more Epitalon? If so did you find a reputable vendor?
