It’s no secret that our genetic make-up has a great deal of impact on how we age. However, it’s not just our genetics that influences the rate at which we age. The lifestyle choices we make and how we treat our bodies plays a big part in the determination of our true life-phase. Here at Rejuvalife Vitality Institute, we offer Telomere testing to help patients determine their true biological age and how it compares to your chronological age. Keep reading to learn more about what Telomere testing can do for you.
How Does Telomere Testing Work?
A Telomere Test in Los Angeles analyzes one’s chromosomes and the length of the telomeres (sections of DNA) that exist on the end of each one. These telomeres are structures that protect the chromosomes from degrading. It is understood that the more degraded a chromosome is, the shorter the telomere section will be. As chromosomes gradually deteriorate, they will eventually die, which is thought to be the cause of many health issues that are associated with the aging process.
What Do I Do with the Results?
Once the test is performed, you will have an understanding of where you stand with telomere lengths. Coupled with what you and Dr. Berger know about your physical health, you will be able to better understand what you can do to improve your biological age and what diet and lifestyle changes need to be made for optimal health.
