What is Biological Age?
Biological Age is how rapidly your body is aging. Chronological Age is how many candles are on your birthday cake, or how many years you’ve been on this earth. While Chronological Age is just a number that shows the passage of time, Biological Age is a reflection of your body’s current health.
Most outward signs of aging and age-related diseases are caused by cells losing function when their genes stop regulating them appropriately. By slowing down your Biological Aging, you’re keeping genes activated that tell your cells to act younger, longer. Younger cells heal faster, and do their jobs more efficiently, regardless of how many birthday candles you have.
TruAge is an at-home sample collection kit.
Upon receiving your sample, our laboratory looks at an epigenetic marker called DNA Methylation and uses the latest research and technology to create an accurate, scientifically verified assessment of your Biological Age.
Using a few drops of blood, our lab analyzes an epigenetic marker called DNA Methylation to create an in-depth analysis of your current Biological Age. Knowing your Biological Age, we can offer research-backed lifestyle tips to help slow aging and reduce the risk of aging-related chronic diseases.
What is the importance of age in health? Is aging a disease? People often think of age as a symptom of a disease but it can also be a contributor to developing the disease. Aging is the number one risk factor for ALL chronic diseases, and chronic disease is the number one cause of
