Epigenetic Testing (TRUDIAGNOSTICS)


 

What is Epigenetic testing (TRUDIAGNOSTICS)?

Epigenetic testing (TRUDIAGNOSTICS) is a means of measuring aging through a collection of measurements called “TruAge”.

A small blood sample is collected and sent to the trudiagnostic lab where markers on ones DNA are looked at and reports on the biological aging of different systems in one's body, as well as whole-body aging.

What is the difference between Chronological Aging and Biological Aging?

Chronological aging measures the number of years one has lived, Biological aging measures the aging of individual systems in one's body.

How Does TruAge Work?

TruAge measures Epigenetic Markers on ones DNA called Methylation DNA methylation is a biological process by which methyl groups are added to the DNA molecule. Methylation of DNA is a common epigenetic signaling tool that cells use to lock genes in the "off" position.

By reading the patterns of methylation on ones DNA , TruAge can evaluate where ones DNA is being marked to age faster or slower. Hence the biological age can be determined.

Epigenetic changes are changes in gene expression that can be affected by external factors like lifestyle modification without changing the genetic sequencing. In other words, causes that accelerate aging like:

    • Unhealthy Diet
    • Sedentarism
    • Exposure to toxins
    • Sleep loss
    • Nutritional Deficiencies
    • UV exposure
    • Excessive alcohol consumption
    • Smoking
    • And more

If modified can lead to a reversal of biological age, living a longer and healthier life.
