Using proprietary technology and extensive data mining, we have discovered the age-related CG methylation regions that accurately predict biological age using saliva.
Although it is still not clear how one can decelerate his age lifestyle changes recommended by most national medical associations are perhaps a point to start. Older age is a “red flag” that suggests that perhaps it is time to make some lifestyle changes.
We consider a “red flag” an “epigenetic age” that is older than the standard deviation of the test. Standard deviation provides an idea about the distribution in the normal population which at this point of the analysis is 5 years. As more tests are accumulated we will get a more accurate number of the “normal distribution”.
A “red flag” might prompt you to act on your lifestyle.
