We are passionate about helping you add vitality and healthier years to your lifespan by providing an overview of how well you are aging and your overall health.
DNA methylation is one of the primary epigenetic modifications that occur as humans age, a process by which functional groups (methyl groups) are added to DNA over time. The more methyl groups present in your DNA, the older your cells will behave. DNA methylation clocks can be used to determine early disease risk, expectancy, and mortality.
A saliva sample is taken to discover your biological age, and your DNA is extracted and read across your genome where methylation has occurred. Over 100,00 DNA methylation sites are used to calculate your biological age.
If you have questions about Genetic Methylation Testing or would like to schedule an appointment, please call our office at (850) 903-1708 today!
