Telomere Testing: How Old Am I?
How Old Am I?
Age is just a number, but biological age is a statement. The year you were born just chronicles how long you’ve been alive. But stressors, life events, and trauma shape us into who we are at the cellular level. If you’ve ever been mistaken for being younger or older than you are, odds are you have a different biological age. If this prompts the question “How old am I?” Then you should sign up for Telomere Testing.
What are Telomeres?
Telomeres are sections of DNA at the end of each chromosome that serve as a cap to your genetic material. Every time cells replicate, their telomeres will become shorter. Shorter telomeres imply a shorter life span for a cell. Several factors contribute to shorter telomeres, inflammatory diets, and oxidative stress is all typical examples of what can shorten a telomere. A shorter telomere means that you age quicker than the rest of the population, and the best way to treat this are to have telomere therapies to slow the half-life process.
Telomere length associates with CVD risk, nutritional deficiencies, and cancer. Who you are at a cellular level resembles what you do on the surface level. If you can correct your micronutrient deficiencies, increase your physical activity, lose weight when appropriate and manage your insulin levels, you are significantly increasing the risk of a stronger telomere length and a healthier life.
