The First-Ever Direct-To-Consumer Epigenetic Test

TruAge™ Epigenetic Test

What is The
TruAge™ Epigenetic Test?

A New Era of Medicine

The current trend in medicine is personalized medicine—medicine that is based on a person’s individual genes and proteins. The TruAge Test is the first-ever direct-to-consumer epigenetic test available to users at home.

Until recently, epigenetic testing was conducted only by research institutions due to high costs and very invasive sample collection procedures.

With the TruAge Test, anyone can submit their DNA for analysis to determine how old their body is. Further, they can receive a recommendation on how to reverse or slow the aging process.

TruAge™ Science

Many studies show that although aging is unavoidable, we can slow down the rate of aging and delay the development of diseases. The first step is to accurately determine how old we are and how fast we are aging. The TruAge epigenetic test uses epigenetics to determine your biological age.

What is Epigenetics?

Genetics tells you what genes you have. More importantly, epigenetics tells you what genes are active.
 
Epigenetics is the study of how the body adds and removes chemical “tags” to our DNA, to turn specific genes on or off. These tags record events that happen in your life–diseases, lifestyle, diet, environmental conditions.
 
Epigenetic changes happen way before symptoms of disease appear, and that makes epigenetics the most effective way to predict diseases. As a result, your epigenetic profile is often more important than just your genome because it reflects your ACTUAL state of health and predicts your health’s near or mid-term future.

Don’t worry—your epigenetics can change!

Throughout life, the positioning of epigenetic tags will change to allow for growth, development, and learning. At the same time, these tags can also be influenced by:

What we eat
How we lead our lives
Our Environment
For instance, certain environmental stresses can cause a cell to adjust its epigenetic tags. As a result, this may help the cell adapt in the short term. However, in the long run, it can contribute to disease and aging.
 
Fortunately, epigenetic tagging is reversible, and, if we can learn to control it, we will be able to develop novel approaches to improve health and quality of life for all of us.
 
Our lab compares your results to the “epigenetic clock” in order to determine your biological age. Then, we generate your TruAge Index Report and offer recommendations on how to reverse the aging process.
 
In addition, we recommend retesting every six months to see changes in your epigenetic profile.

Frequently

Asked Questions

The technology we use measures your DNA methylation at only a tiny fraction of the billions of nucleotides (the components that make up your DNA) and is subject to statistical error. Based on our studies, we have approximately 4.75 years’ error rate. If you see what you think is an error, please feel free to contact us. Also, keep in mind that these are initial results. As people continue to join we will continue to update and improve your testing accuracy.

There are many companies that offer the genetic test to determine your genetic composition, as well as ancestry and wellness reports that can be derived from your unique genetic code.

Although this information is important for your health, these tests do not inform you of your biological age or your personal rate of aging. More importantly, without this data, you don’t have a biological marker to determine if your health and wellness routine is working.

No. TruAge test is a research study. The protocols we use are suitable for genetic research only, not for clinical genetic testing like you would receive at a hospital or doctor’s office. Clinical genetic testing is held to higher standards and is done in laboratories, which are certified by governmental regulations called CLIA (Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments). If you use the TruAge data for diagnostic purposes, you should always contact the doctor and have the results confirmed by tests recommended by a medical professional.
