Beyond Genes: Unmasking the Software of Ageing

Unlike genetic tests, The KnowYourBioAge Test focuses on epigenetics, the chemical switches that control your genes’ activity. By analysing these switches, it reveals your biological age, giving you valuable insights into your cellular health.

Note: This test is suitable for adults over 25. Children and young adults are not recommended due to ongoing development.

Your Personalized Roadmap to Healthy Aging

Is your biological age younger or older than your actual age?  The KnowYourBioAge Test empowers you with this knowledge. A younger biological age confirms a healthy lifestyle, while a higher one serves as a wake-up call.

FAQ

What is Epigenetics?

Epigenetics is the study of changes in gene function that are heritable and cannot be attributed to alterations in the DNA sequence. The term epi means above. It is a Greek prefix. It is also defined as above the base DNA sequence. In general terms it can be compared to word accents where the DNA is the language, and the modifications are the accents. Epigenetic marks change the way genes are expressed. It tells us about the cell, it is a way of defining the cell that is different than if we simply look at gene expression levels. Any type of cell that we look at has specialised epigenetic patterns.

What is the KnowYourBioAge test and who can take it?

The test measures your biological age, which can differ from your chronological age. It's suitable for adults over 25. Children and young adults are not recommended due to ongoing development.

What is the difference between biological and chronological age?

Biological age reflects how fast your body has aged, which can differ from your chronological age (actual age in years). Lifestyle and environment play a bigger role in biological age than genes.

When to take the test?

Avoid taking the test when sick, or stressed as it can affect results. Aim for a quiet and healthy phase.

How long does it take to get results?

Expect your results within 2-4 weeks after sending your sample.

What does the result mean ?

Your biological age indicates how fast or slowly you've aged compared to the general population. A higher biological age than your chronological age might suggest lifestyle changes are needed. Don't panic if the difference between your biological and chronological age is significant. The test is a snapshot and can be influenced by various factors.

What can affect the results?

  • Following test instructions properly.
  • Sample quality (enough saliva, proper handling).
  • Your overall health at the time of testing.

How often can I take the test?

You can take the test any time to monitor lifestyle changes, but at least 6 months apart is recommended.

Does the test involve genetics ?

No, the test analyses DNA methylation patterns, not your genes themselves. Your sample is destroyed after analysis.
