The BioGen 360 Test is an innovative two-parametric genetic test looking at significant genetic variations connected to each individual’s predisposition to metabolize certain nutrients and the telomere length – the marker for biological age. Polymorphisms in specific genes allow whether someone is prone to obesity and diseases related to it. Individuals who store fat more efficiently are more likely to present obesity. Some other gene variations may also indicate the ability or not to digest lactose, for instance, thus predicting if they might or not experience discomfort after eating food containing it.
The telomeres shorten in every cell-division cycle and the decreasing of its length is directly associated with aging. In cases of early aging, telomeric length is often detected as shorter than expected, providing information about the degree of cellular aging of the body. Telomeric length is one of the most relevant biomarkers related with body aging. Being able to maintain longer telomeres is related with increased lifespan and retarding the development of age-related diseases.
Understanding your cell biological age allows professionals to clearly approach the right treatments.
