Age is just a number… of two kinds

Did you know that your age is more than just the number of years you have been on this planet?

That is just your ‘chronological age’ – the one you tell people (or don’t).

The other, your ‘biological age’, is etched on your DNA in the form of methyl groups. Simply put, as we age, we accumulate these groups on our chromosomes, just like we gather wrinkles with time. Prof. Steve Horvath described this as the ‘epigenetic clock’. Our disease risk increases as we age biologically, but we can modify our biological age with the right lifestyle, and treatments.

Curious about your biological age? It can be as simple as 1-2-3, with our test ‘Reveal My DNAage’, based on Horvath’s science. With just a small sample from you (either saliva or urine), we can tell you yours in as little as 6-8 weeks. And with continuous tracking, you can even keep an eye on your DNA age as it progresses; to figure out the best ways to improve your health and longevity.
