Epigenetic modifications are heritable changes in the genome that occur independent of any alterations to the primary DNA sequence. Epigenetic mechanisms play a crucial role in regulating biological processes as diverse as development, learning, metabolism, and in the progression of diseases such as cancer. DNA methylation, the most abundant and best-studied epigenetic modification, is now recognized as a reliable indicator of biological age. The myDNAge® Epigenetic Aging Clock service is based on Dr. Steve Horvath’s aging clock, the gold standard of epigenetic age calculator built using DNA methylation data. Simply submit your urine or blood sample, and we will determine your biological age by measuring the epigenetic modifications on your DNA.
You can choose to provide either urine or blood samples for your own convenience. The collection device will be shipped to you within 1-2 weeks.
Follow the simple instructions inside the kit to collect your samples. Please mail it back with the prepaid shipping box provided.
Your result will be ready in 6-8 weeks. The report will be delivered to you by email. You can track your DNA age changes if you take multiple tests.
