Epigenetic test from TruDiagnostic
An epigenetic age test that measures 900,000 DNA methylation sites.
Using a few drops of blood, our lab uses the latest epigenetic research and technology 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 measurably reduce the risk of aging-related chronic diseases. You can also take your results to a physician to create a personalized roadmap to optimizing your health and lifespan.
Chronological Age is just ‘How many years you’ve been alive.’ Biological Age describes how well your body is aging. A body that is aging slower will have better cell function, and fewer outward traits of aging (like wrinkles, vision loss, and susceptibility to age-related diseases) than someone who is aging faster. Studies have shown that decreasing your biological age by 7 years also cuts your incidence of age-related diseases in half.
Our lab looks at Methyl Groups, which is a type of Epigenetic marker. It’s basically a note pinned to your DNA that changes how your cells read it. When a Methyl Group has attached onto your DNA, that’s called DNA Methylation.
We have a huge database of which DNA Methylation spots affect Biological Aging, so we can compare your DNA Methylation patterns against the model average, and build an accurate picture of how your body is aging. Current research shows that DNA Methylation is a fundamental process of aging, and as a result is the most predictive biomarker for all age related diseases.
