Meet Rachael D’Aguiar
By chance, in 2010 an investor introduced Rachael D’Aguiar to Dr Bill Andrews. D’Aguiar, a kiwi entrepreneur with a background in anti-ageing and skin and Andrews an award winning microbiologist and President of Sierra Sciences in Reno, Nevada.
Dr Bill Andrews, otherwise known as ‘Dr Telomere’ is world-renown for discovering the human telomerase gene. When switched on it expresses the enzyme telomerase which has the ability to repair DNA damage and literally un-do the ageing process. This discovery, literally of how to reverse ageing, has been touted as the biggest scientific breakthrough since anti-biotics.
Switching on the Telomerase Gene
Once Dr. Andrews discovered ‘how’ to reverse the ageing process he set about looking for different molecules that could switch this gene on. His determination saw him test over 350,000 different molecules focussing 11 years study and over $33 million dollars in this quest. The strongest molecule he discovered, known as a telomerase ‘activator’ had the code name C0314818, being the 314,818th molecule tested!
From here, the story takes an unexpected turn. The world’s strongest telomerase activator was actually shelved in a cupboard and ignored for several years! The reason? It is one of the most expensive ingredients to make and Dr Andrews couldn’t see how he could use it.
C0314818 Gets a New Name
When Dr. Andrews and Rachael started talking, her and her team quickly realised that because of the potency of C0314818 you didn’t have to use too much of it and they could make the most effective topical age reversal product ever created at less than the price of some inferior moisturisers!
The first thing was to get C0314818 ‘skincare ready’ by ensuring it could be delivered deeply into the skin to work its ‘epigenetic’ magic and to lose the not-so-friendly code name! TAM stands for Telomerase Activating Molecule and the ‘818’ is a nod to it being the 314,818th molecule tested and Bill’s tenacity!
The Clinical Proof
Next was to gather irrefutable proof that it worked! We had all the studies from Sierra Sciences showing how effectively the telomerase gene was switched on when TAM-818 was used on the cells, but we didn’t have a large-scale human study. Given that we were about to pioneer a brand new field of science with ‘topical telomerase activation’ we wanted to leave no room for doubt. Abich Laboratories and 100 volunteers were recruited for a 30 day trial in Italy. This study was completely independent and facilitated by doctors.
The Results Even Surprised Dr. Andrews
The results showed such a significant difference after 30 days that even Dr Andrews and his team were blown away! Not only could a reduction in wrinkles be measured (and seen!) but also skin lifting and how much elastin the cells had started to produce! Further trials conducted in New Zealand affirmed these results and also how dramatically One Truth 818 could reduce pigmentation and correct sensitive skin.
A telomerase activator like TAM-818, will preferentially work on cells with critically short telomeres first. These critically short telomeres stop cells from functioning properly, from producing collagen and elastin and they can let pigment go haywire. Repairing these telomeres quickly is why most people see results within 3-4 weeks of using One Truth 818.
