For prevention and overall good health, it is recommended to monitor your biological age every six months or every year, along with your annual check-up. If you wish to evaluate a new health intervention, such as a new diet plan, a new exercise routine or a new anti-aging supplement, then you can you’re your biological age before starting the intervention and repeat after 6 months to find out how your body responds.

The earlier in life you start calculating your biological age the better. It is recommended to start from the age of 30.

As with any blood test, it is recommended that you fast for 12 hours.

Currently, the calculation of biological age using blood biomarkers is one of the strongest indicators of healthspan and is already being used by many people and Longevity Medicine practitioners around the world, as well as in clinical trials of new anti-aging drugs.

Keep in mind that biological age is plastic and therefore can be decelerated or even reversed through positive healthspan interventions or through prognosis, early diagnosis and disease control.

Aging is the result of the genome (DNA) interacting with the environment. It has been estimated that approximately 20% of the aging process is attributed to genetics, while 80% is due to the environment and lifestyle and how these factors influence genes through epigenetic changes.

We do not provide this test. Telomere length is an older marker used to calculate the speed of aging. While it remains a useful indicator, studies show that it is not as accurate and reliable as biological age calculated using blood biomarkers. However, both indicators can be used in combination.
