The Science of AgeRate
AgeRate MeasuresAgeRate measures DNA methylation to accurately predict your biological age
What is DNA?
DNA is the software that operates our cells
It does not change and is passed down from parents
What is Biological Age?
There are 2 types
Biological age is a predictor of the functional capability of someone and their body
What is DNA Methylation?
DNA methylation is the addition of a methyl group onto the cytosine DNA base
DNA methylation can change with the environment. It keeps track of the actions that individuals take
Methylation changes with lifestyle
How can DNA Methylation tell you about biological age?
Certain combinations of DNA methylation markers can represent different age populations
These methylation profiles are accumulated from environmental impact and innate age-related changes.
DNA methylation markers are reversible making them useful for identifying true anti-aging interventions.
DNA Methylation outperforms other biological age methods
6 types of biomarkers can currently satisfy these conditions
DNA Methylation age and its association
DNA methylation clock is the most promising eliminator of biological age
Ageing affects our health whether from declining physical fitness to the development of an age-related disease
Biological age shows us insights about how your body is responding to time
Multiple lifestyle factors are associated with biological age
