TELOMERES & AGING

WHAT IS A TELOMERE?

Telomeres are sections of genetic material, caps at the end of each chromosome whose role is to prevent chromosomal fraying when cells replicate. When our cells age, it is the telomeres which shorten. Eventually, as the telomeres become too short cell replication is impacted, the cell stops dividing and ultimately dies - a normal biological process. Telomeres function to stabilize chromosomes, support replication, and help regulate gene expression, this then affects the cell’s age.

By testing your telomeres it will help establish your cells' biological age as it relates to the average cellular age of the general population. With this knowledge, we can then select certain therapies aimed at slowing the loss of telomeres, and the onset of signs of aging and age-related conditions.

WHAT WE DO:

  • Advanced Blood Test to Determine Current Length of Telomeres

  • Medical & Wellness Team Result Review and Strategy
    We then conduct a team-approach analysis and create a comprehensive and targeted plan

  • In-Depth Results Review and Consultation 
    Comprehensive consultation to review your results and present targeted solutions which include lifestyle adjustments and supplementation recommendations.
