Biological Age “Telomere” Testing
Inside all your cells are telomeres, the protective caps on your DNA that shorten with age but also change with lifestyle factors like nutrition, hormone imbalances, chronic stress, sleep quality, physical activity and even strained relationships. Your telomeres are vitally important to evaluate how “well” or “poor” you are aging. Telomeres were first discovered in the beginning of the 20th century. Today we know that telomeres are repeating segments of noncoding DNA that live at the end of our chromosomes. Their length is directly linked to our biological age. Telomeres, which shorten with each cell division, help determine how fast our cells age and when they die. The extraordinary discovery from recent research is that the ends of our chromosomes can actually lengthen with corrective lifestyle, nutrition and supplemental intervention as a result, aging is a dynamic process that can be accelerated, slowed, and even reversed! Telomere testing is vital for us to see your aging baseline at the beginning of treatment and of course to stage the effectiveness of the program. After all, isn’t that the goal to age better and maintain a higher quality of life. With telomere testing we can put down the crystal ball and get proven scientific data on exactly that and adjust your program based on the results.
The longer your telomeres, the younger your cellular age.
