Shortening of telomeres results in the side effects of aging – the breakdown of tissues. So reversing telomere shortening or preventing it, should, in theory , be life-prolonging and healthful. Below is a Longevity Mix of Nutraceuticals that each have evidence for telomerase activation:

Aging With Dignity

Fortified foods, beverages, supplements and creams aim to help people look and feel better as they age.

Telo-nutritioneering:

Longevity Mix:

Silymarin: 200 Mg 2x a day

N- Acetyl Cysteine : 1800 -2400 mg/day

Resveratrol: 10-20 mg daily

Green Tea (EGCG): 50 mg a day

Ginkgo Biloba: 40-80 mg cycled every 4 weeks

Acetyl L- Carnitine  1000 mg  aday

Vitamin C 540 mg a day minimum

L-Arginine : 500 mg-1000 mg a day

Alpha tocopherol: 400 IU a day

Vitamin D3 : 2000 IU daily

Folic Acid : 2-5 mg daily

Milk Thistle for helping out with telomeres: American Indians used this as a health inducing tonic:

Silymarin boosts Telomerase activity by 300% and reduces the number of senescent cells. It also increases the number of endothelial progenitor cells by 64%:

Silymarin Inhibits Endothelial Progenitor Cells’ Senescence and Protects Against the Antiproliferative Activity of Rapamycin: Preliminary Study 
Journal of Cardiovascular Pharmacology. 56(6):610-618, DEC 2010  DOI: 10.1097/FJC.0b013e3181f78dc

N- Acetyl Cysteine

A building block for the master anti-oxidant, Glutathione. It delays decay of endothelial cells by hTERT activation.

Chronic treatment with N-acetyl-cystein delays cellular senescence in endothelial cells isolated from a subgroup of atherosclerotic patients Mech Ageing Dev. 2008 May; 129(5): 261–270.

Gamma Tocotrienol

One of the four lesser known forms of  Vitamin E may modulate the length of telomeres by telomerase and exposure to it for just 24 hours seemed to lengthen telomeres by 16%.This has been seen in multiple studies.

Resveratrol

Increases telomerase activity and prevents endothelial cells from dying.
Resveratrol reduces endothelial progenitor cells senescence through augmentation of telomerase activity by Akt-dependent mechanisms

Br J Pharmacol. 2008 Oct; 155(3): 387–394.
Resveratrol also suppresses cellular proliferation and induces DNA repair, and facilitates HDL production

Resveratrol reduces endothelial progenitor cells senescence through augmentation of telomerase activity by Akt-dependent mechanisms.

EGCG:

ECGC Has a powerful effect on telomeres, lengthening them by .46 Kilobases longer in green tea drinkers – the equivalent of 5 years of life lengthening.

Ginkgo Biloba:

Ginkgo Biloba activates Telomerase in endothelial cells of blood vessels

Ginkgo Biloba Extract Reduces Endothelial Progenitor-Cell Senescence Through Augmentation of Telomerase Activity  Journal of Cardiovascular Pharmacology. 49(2):111-115, FEB 2007

Acetyl L carnitine combined with choline can affect the symptoms of Alzheimers and causes nerge growth factor to be produced.

Vitamin C:

also increases telomerase activity as well and slows down the shortening of telomeres by 64%

Vitamin C treatment promotes mesenchymal stem cell sheet formation and tissue regeneration by elevating telomerase activity.

L- Arginine and alpha tocopherol also turn on Telomerase as well.

Cycloastraganol Supplement for Telomere protection: 

Cycloastraganol is a telomerase activator of TAT2 from the Astragalus root. Click on the link above:
